When you go swimming it is suggested that you have a swimminig buddy in the event there is a problem. The same is true for hiking and certain other activities. I am wondering if Hubpages has a buddy type system. Sometimes I feel like I am on a trail with a bear on my tail! Oops! At times when I ask a question- Forum or Answer-, the answer seems like French,which I know but not enough to survive.I feel duncy and ask myself why i cannot ask a simple question and get a simple answer.Is it that I have too many preconceived notions?Interaction, based on hubs I have read, is considered important.Do I not fit in?
How often do you spend on forum's? That's where you start to make your buddy's. I have a few I just adore, and the list just keeps growing everyday, but I get to know them in the forums.
I never even really realized the forums existed for my first year--make that more like 16 months--on HP. Then when I did finally begin participating, it was several more months before any true HP buddies "surfaced" in my online life.
Got several now, though, and can rely on them with a pretty high degree of trust...and would hope the reverse is true as well.
I think as far as the forums go, this site is in part what it is because of us, the users. We make this site friendly, or challenging, or hostile, depending on who is participating and on what. Some frequent forums users never seem to post out of the political and religious forums and seem to be here for the debate only. Some people do like to answer challenging questions about making money or getting traffic or whatever else. Some people do seem to be quite annoyed when they see a question that has been answered many times before in hubs and the forums, and thats their right to feel that way. Same time some people enjoy watching their answers improve with their understanding and so try to provide answers to the best of their ability whenever they see a question. At the end of the day you may find that at any given time someone may be online who will get a bit snippy about a question or you may have some of the more friendly folks wanting to learn and teach everything necessary to experience success in their goals here. If you don't get a good response try seeing if there are past forums where there was a question like yours ask read it and if necessary comment asking for further clarification to something that was said back when the question was asked before. There are some great hubs as well but they will likely inspire yet more questions, especially when advice seems to conflict

I'm being stalked by a hubber in the forums. Yesterday, he verbally assaulted me on numerous posts...he did not use a personal attack, per say, but assaulted my integrity and personhood in a violent manner. I felt assaulted.Now he follows around the forums, and when his friends make disparaging...

I see I got 30 Hubber Points for getting a "signup". How do those figure into my Hubbish life? I can't find an answer to that in any of the forums I've read.

I was browsing through Owlcation yesterday and saw "Answers" was being promoted more than hubs. Previously if you clicked on "best", latest" etc,. it was all hubs. Why the change?I am a little upset that hubs are not getting enough attention in the "best",...

I've been spending too much time in the forums lately, and have noticed an amazing relationship between the number of posts made by a person, and the quality of their contributions to the forum.I therefore reveal my theory about "Hubber Quality Index (or HQI) to everyone.Here's my theory:1. 10...

If I may be so bold as to make a request of HubPages, I would like you to please re-examine at this time your decision to ban Jerrico Usher from the Hub Forums.He has proven himself to be quite mindful of the mistake he made before and seems to me to be waaay to smart to make the same mistake...

To date, I have been denied permission to ask and/or answer questions because of revenge? mark downs by disgruntled hubbers. I get blocked for a while, then un-blocked, then blocked again. Also some of my Q&As are deleted by HP staff without notice or a chance to defend my position. The Q&A...
