    hey, i was originally going to put up a link to crazdwriter's profile in the recommend the best hubber profile, and i found out she's gone.  when did this happen?  does anyone know what happened to her?  i didn't know she left hubpages, as this makes me very sad because i always considered her one of my best friends on here.  anyway, i hope where ever she is, that she's okay.  however, its still shocking to me though.

      Where's Rita, where's Texas, why are all the best people leaving?

        Friendlyworld, it depends what you mean by "best".

        When people say "the best Hubbers are leaving", they're usually referring to the people who were popular in the HP community, or created the biggest stir in the forums for everyone's entertainment, or who wrote the most literary/funniest/quirkiest Hubs.

        The problem is, that kind of Hubber usually doesn't last, and it's not HubPages' fault.

        The popular ones get frustrated that they're making no money in spite of "all their efforts" - they never get the message that effort spent interacting with other Hubbers has a very small impact on traffic and income.

        The controversial ones create a stir in the forums once too often and get banned for life.  Or they become indignant at a smaller ban and leave voluntarily. 

        The funny/quirky/literary Hubs don't make any money and also don't attract external visitors, so eventually those Hubbers also get discouraged by the lack of traffic and income.

        I'm not suggesting any of those apply to Crazdwriter, I don't know her well enough.

          Trick to making money on quirky hubs is to pick titles that search.  big_smile

    I knew she was not publishing or participating in the forums but I did not know that she had removed her work.

      neither did i.  it makes a bit sad that she left, as i consider her one of my closest friends here.

        Do you know of anyone who might be in touch with her? I hope everything is okay.  I loved her creativity.

    what's going on around here?  It seems a lot of people are leaving and leaving no trace!  I hate that!  I miss people I don't even know I'm missing sometimes.  I just got back from my little ban and realize there are so few of my old buddies left in the forums.  Maybe they all just got high-profile jobs and can't have their work on HubPages because somebody else got an exclusive contract on their work?  If so, hope they're happily making lots of $$$$

    I wonder why they do not leave their hubs.  I would think that they would keep them on here to make some money.  Odd.

    1. mega1 profile image78
      mega1posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      me too - I always think they have a beef with HP and don't want anyone to profit from their writing anymore.  Whether it makes sense or not - I don't know!  I wish someone who knows one of those who has decamped would email them and ask for an explanation and report back to us - so the mystery will be solved.

    Yes, that would be nice to receive a feedback.  Maybe it would help hubpages.com to develop and grow.

    She actually just left a few days ago though she stopped activity long before that. I don't really know why she took it all down.

    It is a shame, but this happens a lot. Unfortunately when people put up a post on a forum stating they are leaving hubpages they inevitably get loads of fellow hubbers asking them not to go and to stay instead. This in itself is not a problem of course, but usually leads to other hubbers also posting to say how tired they are of hubbers saying they are leaving and then commenting back loads of times to people asking them to stay. The feedback usually seems to say words to the effect of, "if you want to leave, just go, don't post in order to get loads of people begging you to stay".

    I don't really agree with the people who are so harsh on those that choose to leave and notify their friends first via a forum thread, but sadly this is frequently the reaction, so perhaps crazedwriter just decided to go quietly to avoid this kind of reaction, (although perhaps she could have private messaged her closest fellow hubbers first with reasons for the decision to go).

    She always had plenty of good banter on the Hub Forum...back in the day. But...I understand if she didn't want to participate in it much....anymore. Best of Success Always, L!

    I've seen her post on some forums run by other hubbers, so she's not hard to find.

    Does HubPages automatically delete your work if you have been inactive for too much time?

    1. mistyhorizon2003 profile image95
      mistyhorizon2003posted 7 years agoin reply to this

      No, I believe they will leave them up indefinitely unless you delete them, after all, both them and you still make money whilst they are published, so even if you are inactive you will be earning for them and yourself, they would be mad to delete articles that are earning revenue.

    2. Marisa Wright profile image98
      Marisa Wrightposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      No, your Hubs keep on earning.  I remember once reading a forum post by someone who wrote a few Hubs then decided it was a waste of time, so she forgot all about HubPages and went on to other things.

      About a year later, she thought she'd better come back and delete her Hubs and cancel her Adsense account - and discovered she'd made $100!  Needless to say, she decided to keep her Hubs after all smile

      So I also cannot understand why people delete their Hubs when they leave.  Even if they're annoyed with the site for some reason, they're cutting off their nose to spite their face. The sensible thing is to leave your Hubs published unless you have another immediate use for them.

      I'm especially gobsmacked when someone decides to 'take a break' and unpublishes all their Hubs.  Where's the sense in that?

        Marisa, I totally agree and feel the same way. Beyond me when hubbers delete everything. 

        As for crazd, I don't think her hubs were very commercial.  I think the HP community and forum life meant more to her than earnings.  I think she averaged 50 or more posts a day. I guess things went sour somewhere and she took it very personally.

    I was thinking of leaving myself, but I know how much all of you would miss me and I couldn't find it in my heart to deprive you all of my company, so don't worry, I'm sticking around!

      "sticking" is the operative, here amigo.
      lol

      But glad you are a barnacle on this ship.

      I'm "sticking" around too. So there. Can't get rid of me.

      Neener, neener, neener.

      P.S. Crazd, if you read any of this, you are missed. Hope you'll come back and join us again.

    A lot of crazdwriter's stuff was fiction so I don't think she was in it for adsense money.  She might have taken them down to protect her work and ideas while she develops them?
