    You know where it says, "Was this hub........?" at the bottom of a hub article?  Well I would really like to see the option to select the word "creative."  So many of the hubs I come across are not useful, meaning there is no application to apply it, nor are they "beautiful, funny or awesome."  But they are however, "creative."

    Food for thought. Thanks.

    I would have also liked "Terrible" or "Woeful" added to the list.

      I remember seeing somewhere a comment about the fact that this is why the up and down ratings no longer work.

      To increase positive atmosphere, the staff wanted only positive feedback available.

      So in other words - now we have to put our name to it when we tell them their work was shyt!

      I haven't really had this experience.  So I cannot agree that this would be a good idea.  But that is why we have the flag option, and the down button right?

      The reason I would like to suggest creative is because, earlier today I came across a hub about Pablo Picasso.  Now I think Pablo's artwork is awful.  So the "beautiful" option, wasn't an option for me to choose.  Furthermore, since I do not like the artist's work, I couldn't use the option of "useful" either.  Moreover, the hub article was a very short excerpt of the artist and his life.  It was well written, easy to read, and the author put in some unique facts about Pablo's art that isn't widely known.  There was nothing "funny" about the article, and even though the article was well written- it wasn't "awesome."  However, the author's creative format and approach to the subject matter made the article interesting. 

      Teachers everyday use their imaginations to teach.  There creative approaches is why we learn, and is why they are awarded for being great teachers.  I learned new things about Pablo, because of this authors creativeness in teaching me, "Joe public" something new.

      People through out the literary field, receive accolades and honors based off their creativity.  Just take a look at the foundations of the Peabody award.  Since HubPages is a  publishing website for aspiring writers,  I was only thinking to help better make it even better.wink

      But heck far- don't change a thing- I'm already here.  I'm not shopping around for a "new" site to write on.  I'm not a new potential Hubpages customer/client, um I mean, writer.

      What???  Utter pants?  Seriously?

      That's your answer? 

      Utter pants.
      You know, I love hubpages. 
      So, I really don't care, don't change a thing.  I mean, it is only a suggestion, not an implication that hubpages isn't good enough.

    It would be nice if we could vote on topics and responses as well.  I'd go for the "up" button.
