easier to find for new hubbers?
When I first joined it took me a while to find things like that as they are not exactly obvious to someone unfamiliar with the layout of the site. I know it sounds odd but at first I did not realise that the 'help' button at the top was really what I thought of as a FAQ button.
Maybe they (the help and learning center link/button) could be displayed in a way that drew attention to them for the first ten signed in visits that a new Hubber makes to the site or if not displayed in a more prominent position permanently. Not sure if it is possible to do the first as you could write what I know about programmes on a postage stamp and still have space left over.
I think you make a good point. There are several things that have become obvious to me after months of being on here - but at first they were practically invisible. "Help" and "The Learning Center" should certainly be made easy to find, in my opinion.
good point. perhaps the Learning Center could also be at the top and help could be in red letters..?
for some reason, I don't think our eye is accustomed to viewing the bottom of a page.
I must say the Learning Center is not easy to find when it is at the bottom. The help link should be easier because it's near the profile and account links. Why not move the link to the Learning Center up there as well? It would shift all the text a bit to the left but that's okay.
How about a big flashy button with an animated arrow pointing to it?

I've been writing here for over 4 years and when I want to find the Learning Center I have trouble. Why don't they make it easier to find???

It might help improve the quality of our content if access to the Learning Center was more obvious. It used to be available from a drop down menu. Now, you have to go to Help and look for it.Incidentally, I ran across a minor typo in the Learning Center under "How To Create Successful Online...

I can never find the learning center link, and it is very frustrating. If you are listening, Hub Gods...please place it back where it was for easy access.

I had a hard time finding it for a new writer who needed help on HubPages. I had to go through the "About Us" section then I think the blog to get to the Learning Center. Perhaps there is an easier way, but to a new user, it's difficult.I thought it would be under help, but it wasn't. I...

It looks like a fourth of my feed lately is comprised of new people wanting the rest of us to tell them how to write. All day I get request after request for help on passing the Quality Assessment. I mean Really? Many of your requests are just one step above being a jumble of mis-spelled words...

When I first came here from Squidoo I was so wishing there was a “someone” I could communicate with who would answer my questions, or tell me where I could get the information I needed. I did use the forums and received answers that helped me, but it would have been so nice to have...
