    Granted, it just forwards you to Hubpages.com, they planning to use it for anything?

      Nice find, how did you find the domain?

      I believe the plans, if they have any right now, are going to be a big secret.

        Because I make websites, and I was searching domains.. and accidentally ran into it in my search. big_smile

          What if they suddenly close hubpages.com and tell us to write all our hubs at hubwiki.com? wink lol

    Maybe they just took the URL so stop someone else getting it?

      That would be my first guess.

    Great idea to use all the keywords you can find.  Maybe I'll get one that says JaneWiki lol

    Speculation time!

    Maybe they're going to make a more detailed FAQ. One that would fully explain just about everything HP related, as well as write advice on making successful hubs and stuff.

    I think newbies are more likely to read a wiki than the faq. FAQ makes it seem like it'll only cover basic questions, whereas a wiki sounds more comprehensive.

    eh, it was registered a year after hubs opened - woul dbe surprised if they suddenly developed it now.

    I would speculate that Hp.com was more successful than projected and all efforts were placed into it instead. If I owned hubswiki before hubpages.com was big, I would have planned on making a wikipedia copy that allowed advertsing- but w/ hp.com aimed at quality "flagship" style works it would no longer be a necessary time expenditure. But, one could never release the domain since it so easily could parasite from the success of HP

    Maybe the hubs written for the health and food contests will be useful for a site called that.
