I was shocked when I checked my profile just now and found somebody else's avatar and topics listed in some of my favorite topics. What happened there?
HubPages has a new policy that is a little like communism. You see, everything you publish here is put in a pot, shaken (gentle so as not to bruise), and meted out at random.
This allows newbies and Bollywood hubbers to get a fair chance at some of the big money.
Personally, I am praying (or is that preying) I get a really sexy avatar. Then I can get more followers while feeling good about my appearance every time I log in. Note to HubPages staff: Email me for a list of hubbers I would like displayed in place of my avatar.
I also have my eye on a couple of really neat (and god, I hope big moneymaking)hubs. Note to HubPages staff: Email me for a list of hubs I would like placed in my portfolio. In the mean time, please fax me a list of the highest earning hubs on HubPages. This information has a high likelihood of altering my selection of hubs I would like you to send my way.
LMAO Keith....sexy avatar....oh I nearly spat my coffee out.....
Nothing wrong with your avatar it is just great.
Have you not noticed the other 12 threads on this subject?
Is there only 12, UV? I cold have sworn there were a lot more than that!
Oh, I've only got one hub in my rss feed now and its something about how high you can jump when playing basketball!
How suitable is that for me, lol, with my broken back!
UW, the topics listed are not my topics at all! This is so shocking to me.
Will somebody tell me what happened here?
Dunno, but we are all affected. The rss feeds are off, the hubs are off, the favorites are off...goodness knows what else? It's all just a bit mixed up.
And I think someone else is getting my page views too! They have plummeted!
Still, tomorrow is another day!
Oh no! What is going on? I haven't check my pageviews yet.
I had to look up Moccona LOL - it's a brand of coffee, right? So that must be an advertising jingle or something?
Yeah something like that - time out to relax
Actually, I think stats really are affected too, because I've just looked at adsense and my page views are fine. It's only on Hubpages they aren't.
I also noticed this morning that Figment's profile pic is now Fluffymetal's pic lol.
Yes BP I posted a hub about it too. Someone turned my poems into an expose on how to cook fried chicken, and then how to apply make up to a mannequinn. I was very sacred BP...Oh my goodness.!!!!!
Oh Blake I can really understand why.
Just the way you described it though it made me laugh about you being a makeup artist.
I am glad I am not a financial consultant no-more as I cannot find my claculator any-where.
No, but you can count on your toes then!
Hahaha I do have building blocks here as a back-up....
I have seen this happen before and it seldom last long...
Just think TM, get another 1000 posts in tonight and you'll wake up with a score of 150!!
Only kidding...glad your stats are fine. It's only hubpages reading of them that is out on mine.
yeah hubs is not doing well today. I hope they recover from it.
You think someone hacked them? Is possible. Isn't
I am not much on computers and hackin and all that so I am not sure.
There are so many threads about the same occurrence HP will correct the issue, don't worry you can bet it will be handled.
For future reference e-mail email@example.com eliminating so many threads the will answer quickly via e-mail.
But this way is much more fun, don'tcha think AE???
At this point, the problem has been going on for over 9 hours. Many many emails have been sent - probably enough to bring the server down lol, and there have still been no official announcements. I can understand why the forums are inundated with threads on this, though I honestly don't understand why, when something like this happens, people fail to look on the forum to see if others have posted about the same thing before they start new threads.
All my "favorite topics" hubs are someone else's hubs with the author's avatar - I've never seen or visited any of the hubs nor have I any interest in the topics. It's not fun or funny! I tried rebooting, hoping it was a computer glitch, it seemed so inexplicale. Hope the situation can be resolved!! It could be quite destructive.
Also a friend has joinedd Hubpages, received a welcoming email but when she posted a comment, my notification of a new comment said it was by an unverified person. What's that all about?

So hubbers help? I had four hubs that went from the pending state to having the featured status. Originally they were all viewed on the page where you can hop hubs.Now I dont no where they are? What does that mean? They all appear...

I have been monitoring my real time traffic for the past week. I have noticed that the active page is sometimes listed as "/". Does anyone know what that means? The last time it happened I checked and it was listed as a social visitor, and I think the source is from Hubpages.

Why isn't my last published hub showing up in my profile page?Usually, as soon as I publish an hub it shows up in the hubs section (top) of my profile page, but yesterday I published one and nothing... Anyone experiencing the same?

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come up below? I just don't want overkill but like the thought that I've got my...

It would be useful to be able to sort our hubs into categories on the profile page. This would make it easier for readers to see what else is available in subjects that interest them, and also remind writers to work on a niche. I think the option was available on the old profile page - was it...

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...
