    When is a new hubber no longer considered new. Is it determined by the length of membership? Number of hubs?

      It is not the time. It is the knowledge that make you a new or old hubber.

      There are people who joined a year ago but not done anything.  No knowledge about hubpages and its potential.  They are treated as new hubbers.

      In a few days you can become an old hubber by gaining knowledge about hubpages and its potential in many ways.

      Thanks

    I think it depends.

    For instance there are a couple of hubbers who've been on the site over a year and have over one hundred hubs - but I'd still class them as new because they come to the forums and ask very basic questions.

    On the other hand, I've seen hubbers who've been here less than 3 months, have read everything in the FAQ and Learning Centre and are already earning $20+ per month.

    I think interacting on the forum also makes you appear less new, since people get to know you.

    If it's any consolation, I still feel new!

      Wry you are a pro... and old.. oops I mean senior hubber,  I guess after six months on HP you are moderately old and after a year you are I guess you are no longer a new hubber! smile that is as WryLilt says after you learnt the basics!! smilesmilesmile

      Having only been here for 3 months, I have to say that I'd think of someone who has been here for that long with that many hubs as being either clueless or lazy given how much free and available info is all over the site.

    The HubNuggests program is only open to hubbers who are within the first 60 days of joining, so that's one way of looking at new vs not new.

      I was thinking the same thing.  HubNuggets are only opened for new hubbers who've here less than 2 months.  So since I've been here three months now, I'm not a newbie anymore... I'm an oldie. lol

    I'm definitely new, but I am starting to get the hang of hub writing. There are still some very basic things I have to figure out (like how to input the hubmob rss feed into a hub), but hubpages has a great learning center!

    I agree with Hestia: anyone who qualifies for the hubnuggets program is a newbie.

      Simply copy and paste the URL of the RSS feed into an RSS feed capsule on your hub. smile

        Thank you, WryLit! That saved me a search through the Learning Center. :-)

    hi leahlefler just to let you know are not alone with that rss feed thing.  If ever I write a hub for the hubmob topic, I struggle with that part of it. I have even added a rss feed to a hub and had it vanish overnight so I had to repeat the sequence. smile

      It happened to me too.. When I looked at my old hubmob hubs, the rss feed are all blank.  So this week when it went blank, I just deleted it.

    I've been here 3 months, and I still feel very new. It certainly isn't a question of how many hubs you have published either.

    I will say this, I would take my advice from the Learning Center and reputable hubbers who have been here at least a year or two.
    I've read far too many hubs and forum posts from newbies giving out false information and I see them being read by other new hubbers. I just finished reading one and it irked me a bit that someone here less than 3 months thinks they know more than what's presented by HP in the Learning Center. Just because someone is making $, or says they're making $, does not mean they're writing quality hubs and giving out sound advice in their hubs. I've seen some hastily written hubs that look like they were written hastily. That's what makes HP look bad, Advertisers don't want to be linked to those kind of articles.

    I'm still learning... daily.. there's a lot to learn.

    Agree with Rebekkah about misleading advice being given out by newbies, all sort of rubbish being written - and I apologise for that - it's what I do.

    Apart from that - hanging about in the forums is a good way to age yourself.

      Mark, no worries on your part! plus your humor is refreshing. big_smile
      I'm sure most of us remember our newbie days. I was totally in unfamiliar territory, learning how to write/publish online is a new ballgame.

    Very interesting Forum thread to me...

    I've been here under 5 months, and I still feel new, yet I definitely know A LOT more than 4 months ago!

    Just my opinion, but I'd say when you've been here over 6 months AND understand how HP works, you're not really "new" at the game anymore.
