    Hello HubTeam,

    Here are a few suggestions that I would like to see implemented in the next upgrade.

    1. Get rid of the annoying pop up paste text window. It serves no purpose as of now because there is no option of pasting HTML.

    2. Better control in the 'request' area. As of now anyone can register and post any vulgar or inappropriate request. Basically it is possible to abuse the system. Some sort of monitoring will do.

    3. A little bit of HTML is welcome, especially in the profile page.

    4. The ability to link photos, better control over text boxes, like background color and shifting it to right, and shifting pictures to the left etc. In the text box, tweaks like controlling the size and choosing the font, use of different colors for the text, aligning the text to the right, centered and justified etc.

    5. In the gray area regarding adult content, why not disable outbound links from adult Hubs? I know there are people who enjoy adult stuff. And no doubt it brings a lot of traffic to HubPages. So my suggestion is, let there be adult stuff, but segregated, classified and labeled accordingly, so that the non-adults do not have access to it, and only the people who needs to read or see them can explore those Hubs. Most of the adult Hubs have more outbound links than the actual post. So disabling the outward links in adult Hubs will help in quality adult stuff being posted here, and those who needs and enjoys them will not disappointed as well.

    6. I also would like to know who my referrals are so that, I can encourage and guide them to create quality Hubs, thus increasing my revenue potential(if at all they are publishing! LOL!!)

    Of course these are my suggestions and views only. I know that none of this may be practical on a site like this and it takes vast resources to do it. Its almost like a wish list smile

    Any views from my fellow Hubbers and the Hub Team will be most welcome.

    Thank You and All The Best

      The only reason why the Adult Hubbers are here is for the outbound links. Now I'm not saying that that's a bad thing, just the reason. They're not deriving money from posting pictures for others to enjoy. They're doing it for the chance of having traffic filter through and sign up at other sites. If I were an Adult Hubber I wouldn't even bother sticking around to tell people what I thought of such a plan if it were implemented.

      So disabling links won't help in improving or maintaining quality. Because there won't be anyone taking the time to post such material.

      I'm unsure as to how non-adults... children, won't get access to adult stuff. Segregated, classified and properly labeled doesn't stop the kids from clicking through. And it's not in the best interests of Adult Hubbers to have kids clicking through anyway. They're not targeting them. Kids don't have a credit card in which to purchase legitimate content and subscriptions.

      That's just my opinion. All your other suggestions are excellent by the way.

          I have no solutions, only suggestions. But HubPages Inc have made a business decision that is unlikely to be reversed, so all the adult stuff is going offline.
