Been here 12 days.
I've written some rubbish, and my pictures are poor.
Hopped some Hubs, and made the odd comment (I liked what I saw)
The occasional follow and answered some questions
Some forum postings and what do I find?
I'm 91 points, it fair blows my mind!
Sorry if this seems (it is) a blatant attempt to big myself up, but I noticed people saying they had 10,000 posts and so on and thought my experience might give hope to anyone newer than me.
Yeah OK, I'm just amazed that's all. I'm a fraud.
Soon that sweet, sweet, search engine traffic is going to start rolling in.
Your stuff is really good! Unbelievable for 12 days - you deserve your 92 - as it stands now!
hey 91 is still something to be proud of, as there are some hubbers that have been on here longer with a much lower score. Congratulations buddy, and welcome to hubpages!
No, you are not. Remember, I followed you. If you say you write rubbish, I would have to take that as a direct insult of my taste, which you would NOT want to risk, so therefore you are mistaken.
Do some hub hopping. I find that to be a useful ego boosting activity and if you happen to find some real crud, flagging it helps HP staff make this a better place for all of us.
It's thanks to people like you Mr.Unix that I have felt emboldened in my Hubpage adventure.
Thanks friend. I was going to send you a 'joke' fan mail today, but perhaps another time
And thanks to all those who have suffered my newbie bothering over the last few days. Apologies if I can't yet remember all the names I should.
I can't comment as to your taste, PC, but I happen to agree this time. Mark's hubs that I've read were enjoyable - a good read - so I won't incur your wrath either.
You're sure right about an ego boosting, too. So much of what I see hub hopping (probably 9 out of 10) I either vote down or simply pass up. I even flag a few every time I go there.
I try to hub hop regularly also. I find the odd good hub, and flag the substandard ones as well. Helps to keep the faith when we flag bad hubs.
I never flag a hub because I disagree with it, only if it is substandard rubbish.
Sorry! The misleading title is one of my, er, 'talents'.
It's hard to tell with the skinny body and round head... You resemble a stick figure...
1 hair on your scalp really suggest that
It kinda makes you wonder about those folks with an author score below 10 don't it? I mean I have seen an author score of 1 before!
You have to work very hard to get a 1. I think only a very few have actually attained that distinction
I think you are right, tho I have seen it more then once and could not really work out how it happened as participating in the forums should knock them up to 2 at least! LOL
I just want to warn you that this stuff waxes and wanes. I have been at 100 twice recently, but I have also slipped down as low as 94. None of it ever makes any sense - the minute you think you have a clue as to why, you find out you do not.
Congratulations, Im wanting to get to 100.... actually, I think my highest has been 97, so 98, 99 or 100 would bew good!!!
Mark, well done for many things. You are now 93, you've been on HP 13 days and you've written 15 hubs. Keep up the good work. Oh, and as a follower like PC, I wouldn't say you've written rubbish.

HubPages has this wonderful feature called Hub Hopping or Hub Hop to flag low-quality/copied/spam content. I know some hubbers do use this and help HP staff weed out the substandard content. Here's one more reason why everyone should 'hub hop.' I came across this thread on a Google...

I'm new here at HUB and every one of my hubs has warnings and I've been told that I will be terminated soon because everything I post is substandard. I have read all the Terms. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong and since I'm "punished" and none of them can be viewed, I...

There is a new Hub Hopper that is available today. I've posted some details about it on the blog and set this thread up to discuss it and to get feedback. *Note, the Hopper is only collecting data right now, but will soon be used to select Hubs to feature.

One of my poem hubs, 'Stay with me forever' is displaying this warning message:"This Hub is at risk of being identified as Overly Promotional or Substandard."I even posted a question about it but didn't get a satisfactory response. The rules say that I can use one link per 50 words. And...

Hi seasoned Hubbers.What does it mean when someone approves your comments on his/her hub, responds to them, then later removes your comments? It this acceptable behavior? It sure does make the string of comments that remain (only the hubber's own and those that agree with, them) read like a giant...

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.
