I've been watching the fireworks in the forums and it's made me lonely because I didn't want to join in on those discussions.
Anyone around wanting a friendly chat?
How's October treating you? Has Christmas started for your hubs?
No improvement with adsense.
Amazon -good so far. I expect more this month.
Other affiliate networks - No change.
skyfire - straight down to business . My Amazon is great this month but still no toys so might just be natural growth rather than the Christmas rush.
Hello there DoorMattnomore - what do people abbreviate your name to? Or don;t they? It just seems way too wrong to call you Door - or Doormat.
Test went fine, thanks for asking. It was really not fun as I have to wear a restraint round my neck and my head was in a sort of cage thing to keep it totally still. Won't get results for about a month, but I am getting more confident it will be nothing to worry about. I'm feeling spiritual at the moment and well looked after.
I had a curry and it burnt my sodding tongue....Curse you hot spices!!!!!
I had one of those, too, this evening. But it was a mild one. I made it myself, with the help of a jar of Pataks, of course.
Well, me I like to add extras and I added too much chilies and even let slip some of the chili seeds too, curse you chili seeds...my tongue is as numb as a wedgified nutsack!
Hey Spacey, I would like to let you know, that I reported your thread, so as to move it to the Hubber's Hangout forum thread.
General chat shouldn't be located in HubPages Knowledge Exchange, unless you're specifically asking a question about that.
Don't be upset and don't start another thread on the same topic somewhere else, because HubPage Staff will move the thread.
It's nice to see you out and about the forums.
Man, I NEVER notice the topic. Could be why I keep getting sucked into religion...
You would think I would learn to look by now?
Out of curiousity, what role does the topic play? Is it just a matter of orginization within the site, or does it have something to do with search engines?
The HubPages forums, many of them are listed on the search engines. Generalized chat and the "sandpit" are not that I know of.
By not categorizing forum topics properly, it clutters the search engines with junk. The forums themselves have a PR4 or PR5, which is higher than most hubs.
These topics should be on topic. Things not related only hurt HubPages' overall rank. So, in essence, I would think it hurts HubPages.
Can we just exchange with a lot of knowledge, Cagsil? I think you are too ... much. Cannot think of a right word in English. Straight? Rigid?
Perhaps a little pedantic.
Oh well, I suppose everything has to have its place.
Generalized chat that is not specific to HubPages should be done in the Hubber's Hangout.
Don't you think?
I know what you mean, but after awhile I realized he's like the only one- like the moderator and " adviser" here on HP
So........I take it w/ a grain of salt and I appreciate your advice here Cagsil
I was under the impression that on Hubpages we can talk about everything and anything anywhere we want! Unless Cagsil steps in. Cagsil, I think you should fall in love with some capricious woman, badly, desperately, it will make you a little less boring, because otherwise I think you are a very nice person.
It's not a manner of stepping on. It's in the rules of the forum, or did you not read those?
Cor, I am in some kind of a mood tonight! Tired but unable to put the computer away and just chill out!
Anyone here torture themselves like this?
Yes! I just want to chat.. haha. Too much steam on these forums! I just want to talk with like minded people to help each other accomplish the same goals. Feel free to email me anytime!
So what you guys having for dinner?
I am having pita bread pizza's made by my hubby who is taking care of a grumpy and tired me
Sounds good Kirsten. Btw- It's great see and hear from you. Been awhile since we ran into one another on the forums. (((Hug)))
Hey mate, how ya been?
I have been crazy busy designing and whatnot for my zazzle store, every time I make a sale with my artwork and photography I get a renewed obsession to see it succeed. My first major goal is 1000 items in the market place and I am over half way there. Oh and I still have a job!
I had my finial meeting with the council and they decided to give me a warning and give me a new location for my job so I am still the lollipop lady
I will start back up after the half term holiday at the end of the month so I am trying to kit my store out as much as I can before then, maybe afterwards I will re-focus on my hubs and increase my earnings here too
I have been doing well. I'm glad to hear things are moving forward for you. It's always nice to see someone creating success.
And, yeah, I'll agree- put the laptop away while eating. Cheese and grease would not be good.
Oh Oh pizza's are served, better put the laptop down or I will get cheese grease on it!
you guys, you know the anti spammy thingy that you have to type in when your sending email and you have to prove your not a robot? how the heck am I supposed to type upsidedown words?
You shouldn't have letters upside down. The code you put in for "anti-spam" is just a captcha. SPAM is only considered depending on the contents of the email and whether or not permission is granted from the receiver.
wish I would haev taken a screen shot...the first word was uspide down, I swear
lolol pretty silly, isn't it? I hate that too. I just keep reseting until I get something that can actually be typed.
Now I know I'm not the full deck
I reset catchpa's for the sole purpose of discovering silly words and phrases.
You're not a bore of that I'm sure
The thing with you is you ensure
That anyone that needs a hand
Is given help that's real grand.
Then you leave to help some other
That's found an alternative kind of bother
I like the captcha thingy...it usally is relevant to th person Im writing too. excpet this time it was upside down and I dont know how to do that...but I KNOW haunty does...
Then I'm forced to conclude that everyone has their quite valid reasons to reset captchas. Now I can speak captchaese and you will understand it.
Not a poem Haunty. A ditty
@ Cags - that should be A Mode To Cags ... with an additional verse or too
And do you now?
In case you don't - it means it's not even close to anyhting that could be considered poetry. It's silliness
Yes. You know, I always have a dictionary to hand when I'm dealing with you, frog. This time it said, '(humorous) a short simple song.' lol
What a perfect topic for a forum! I was just thinking that myself. See who would show up for a non-controversial cyber coffee klatsch.
Speaking of coffee, that is what I am drinking at the moment.
All this talk of curries and pita bread pizza is making me HUNGRY tho!
Still in SF after last nights Hub Camp.
Heading home soon. Will see Hubby for the first time since o'dawn thirty Sunday when he left on a fishing trip.
Anyone want some fish?
at least you get fish
my husband fishes in rivers and that means that he does not bring the fish home- they get put back in the river so that they can be caught the next time. We have a large number of polish people in our city and they eat the river fish (perch) as a bit of a delicacy, which upsets the indigenous fishermen!
hey, I won $$ by being the 94th caller to a radio station and knowing the name of the song.
my rah for the day.
well done, imagine the kudos.... prompt and knowledgable.... what a lady!!
I'm so excited! thanks. they even play your winning moment on the air.
it will help pay for my son's wedding rehearsal celebration.
so today, this is my favorite song. The First Cut is the Deepest.

500 big ones.
cool beans!! and congrats on the upcoming addition to the familly.
thanks. my first daughter in law. she's amazing.
that coffee is sounding good.
ha, kirsten. much better!
Oh wow, Rebekah! Congrats... I NEVER win contests like that. Perfect use for the money, too. Congrats all around.
Wow, that ain't bad! Better then a kick in the pants as they say
That is way cool. Congrats rebekahELLE!
Always nice to supplement our HP earnings, eh?
I'm heading out to get some "real" (not hotel room) coffee and will be sharing it with you all on my drive back to Sacramento.
Yes, Hub Camp was super.
Mas later, mi amigas/amigos.
hey HomeGirl - be happy! we used to have several self-appointed hubber cops here in the forums telling us all what to say, do, think and where to do it, but there's only one left now!
How's it going? I have almost finished some beadwork, which is all because the forums got so freekin boring and weird and religious - but I still come around to look see, just cuz I can't believe the self-righteous will continue to take over for long. Therefore - enjoying this beautiful fall day of sunshine and not looking forward to the rains that will be here soon enuf - then probably the fun folks will be back to play in the forums all day.
and another thing . . .
Interesting statements with regard to me.
Well then, by all means, don't bother reading things or understanding how things work. Stay gullible and uninformed.
I can talk under concrete,
My mouth never stops,
It starts in the morning,
With my bowl of Rice Pops.
I have tried to be quiet,
But my lips start to move,
The words just keep rolling,
As I get in the groove.
It is worse in the shower,
As my voice starts to sing,
My neighbor Hugh Jass,
He hears everything.
To the end I will chatter,
In the grave where I'll lie,
For I can't stop my waffling,
It's what gets me by.
You may say I am crazy,
And you may not be wrong,
But as my heart bubbles over,
As the words come along.
I had three fox on Christmas day
relaxed and lovely they chatted away
the day drove us on
singing we met the night
and then in the light of a big orange moon
we designed to meet another year
and then the three foxes went on
their merry way!
but I had to stay
so that is why I'm here today
No doubt you jest
and wonder why I speak of foxes
moons, Christmas and
when I should be making sure you
are playing by the rules
and chastising you for repetititive posts!
No doubt you wonder
if I have lost it!
And the words that you bring I love to hear,
Cause when I saw you had posted I had to be near . .
Hugh Jass is your neighbor, oh what a gas,
I love that guy, he always shows class.
To you I blondpoet its always nice to see,
And off I must go cause Im busy like a bee.
Oh you sweet little thing,
How much I love thee,
Gee you Megs and me,
Would make great company.
We'd sail away on my jet ski,
And travel the seas,
And float in our life jackets,
When we crashed into trees.
We'd liven the town,
Up with our vigor and zest,
As my buddy Hugh Jackman,
Takes us out West.
I could have been a contender
But I'm not
cos I'm shot
I wish I was hot
But I#'m not
That's my lot
How rude of me to start a chat thread then disappear. A friend came by for a real chat, and we didnt stop chatting until after midnight.
Anyway - since this thread is up tp 5 pages, I guess you had fun without me.

I understand that our girl, one of our favorite hubbers was banned yesterday. She was not told why she was banned. Today is her birthday and she cannot post on the forums because of this ban. Does anyone knows why she was banned?

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...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...
