Newbie, and don't know if forums are ever used to bring attn to hubs?
No, absolutely not. The only places you can post a link to your Hubs are in the Extreme Hub Makeover thread and in the 30 Day Challenge links thread (if you're taking part in the Challenge).
It's considered bad manners to start a thread just to publicise a Hub, even if you don't actually link to it.
I wrote a Hub on HubPages Etiquette which might help you.
actually, yes, sometimes hubs are mentioned if a certain thread is discussing something you've written about. it's best not to start a thread to promote a hub but at times, posters may mention one of their hubs. I usually don't post a link to my own hub, but may mention it.
I think there is still a thread going about suggesting another hubbers hub.
and then the next poster suggests a hub from the person above them.
welcome and enjoy HP.
And is there a way to manage the threads so I can find them later?
Welcome to HubPages!
There are two ways to follow what goes on in the forums.
(a) Forum front page, click refresh to see latest posts in each thread
(b) Feed - which has almost all activity on HubPages.
On the forum front page, there are several settings above the list of forum threads- one says YOURS which lists your posts and what forum threads you have participated in.
The Feed doesn't cover certain forum threads, which escapes my memory at this second.
Hope that helped.
Thanks Cagsil, found the "your" which located this thread. Neat.
That would have been classed as promotional, but as you've now asked for the link, here it is:

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and assists in dealing with it. Edweirdo has also written many helpful tutorial hubs on...

Since there's a place for suggestions...What about an option for starting a thread and inviting specific people to it? Public and Private threads, in other words. That way people could debate a topic without interference, work on a hub project together...other things I probably haven't thought of...
