Should we create a little buddy system, maybe in a forum, where newbies (under 3 months) can pair up with older hubbers? Pick your buddy and kind of teach them how it works and what we've learned.... just a silly idea
I wouldn't mind you showing me a few things!
Don't blush hun, we're all adults here. I'll be gentle, I promise!
I forgot I was signed in as my alias... my secrets out. figment aka fluffymetal
You've been giving out too many hints!
Don't think I don't know.
Probably not. We all have individual agendas of why we are on HubPages, some of which are not for positive purposes. However, we do have a tremendous resource to do our own research into perfecting our hubs. We have the ability to quickly visit other hubs and we also have these forums. Combined, these platforms support the best ways to aid a new hubber.
If any nubile Swedish newbie hubbers need some pointers, I'm available.
Leave Lars alone. He is Bi-Polar and will crash into suicidal deppression at the first sign of rejection.
Bigots. Pikin on crazy Lars. Good thing he got that swedish Obama care.
I think Nellie Hoxie should be my buddy and write like 40 or 50 hubs that are totally SEO'ed and stuff for really profitable, highly searched, evergreen content that I could then study carefully forever afterwards to learn from.
Sounds like a good idea. And I think there should also be a Forum about how to keep your forum topic from descending into absolute drivel!
Drivel is inevitable. You get your choice of which kind, but that's about it: polemic drivel of the religious or political type, or drivel of the absurd, silly, sexual or snide. That's it.
We've kinda got it. Hub greeting. Some hubbers spend time greeting new guys, try and make them feel more welcome. As a rule, those that have been greeted start emailing the greeter. And greeters are nice folks and help out, behind the scenes *nods*
Good point! And your "name" intrigues me so much that I'm going to have to dip a toe in the pond and see what you are up to!
Oh, oh, oh - I did peak and you like dragons too and you have all kinds of pregnancy info that I can put my daughter onto as she is expecting my first grandchild in the late fall. Good Stuff!
Did you find filth and debris? *sighs* So much pond water, so little time
As long as they weren't butt buddies, it might be okay!
I think you have a great concept to help newcomers, but rather than commit to such a partnership, I am hoping that, and do see this happening already.
Meaning older hubbers taking the initiative to welcome newcomers, read and comment on their hubs, follow them and offer any help via email.
I have read, as I am sure you have, some great threads from old timers spotlighting a newcomers work and introduction.
AEvans and Fastfreda and Faybe I find are constantly donating their time to expose new members and their work.
I have been doing this quite a bit lately, minus the forums and really am amazed at some of the very talented writers becoming members. However, maybe we can have a thread where an older hubber posts a new hubbers profile page and highlight a hub. Example; thread named; LOOK WHO"S HERE
I dont know
Just some thoughts
I really like that idea. I just know that I didn't know just how wonderful hubpages was for the first month. Then it took me two months to figure out what was going on, and how to write better hubs.
Its great to see you
you know you raise another good point.
With so many new members, only a few will get the time of a busy hubber.
But more so, like you, over a year ago, I hid for a good month, then slowly started reading hubs, even too nervous to leave comments.
Completely lost. Too proud to ask questions.
I remember I followed yoshi as my first fan,I couldn't believe how much his hubs helped me.
And I couldn't believe how he reached out to me and helped me, still does.
Then at 41/2 months rmcrayne kindly held my hand to make my first forum post. I had never seen a forum before
Hilarious-just before I deleted my account I think I had 12 000 + posts
My point is we get there but when people like yoshi and rmcrayne and AEvans and Intimatevoluion step in with no conditional agenda, to help, it just comes together.
That's why your thread here is so important to discuss ways to help ones like you and I when we signed up and were lost in confusion

Recently we've had several cases where Hubbers have been able to work together to get plagiarizing sites taken down. Those threads are very important but it's all too easy for Hubbers not to notice them. If we had a forum dedicated to that subject, we'd all be aware of the need to keep an eye...

Today I noticed that some of the niche sites are not always showing the updated dates in the SERPS. I've seen this specifically with Spinditty, Exemplore and Pethelpful. Instead it is showing a much earlier date, and not necessarily even the publication date. If fact, at least one of my Hubs is...

Who thinks we should ask to reinstate a page dedicated to locating hubbers by hubber score. Beginning with 100-0.We once had such a page here that made the hubber score much more relevant, and we could at least get a chance to locate the top hubbers who most definitely deserved high praise for...

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...

How do Hubbers get banned from forums?I've noticed people on Hubpages mentioning that they've been, or are being, banned from the forums. How does this happen? What rules do you have to break to get banned?

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...
