    Ryan Kett posted a link on another thread, but I thought I'd highlight a few points in a thread all its own.

    Here's four interesting facts about HubPages:

    - We have the largest collection of poets online.

    - We have plans to host our own video platform because it will give us more control over advertising.

    - We find that content reaches an earnings peak only after 30 months.

    - We are a lean organization with 25 people, we plan to add engineers and moderators this year.

    I think that it is also important for us to remember that HubPages has been very good to us all and given us a great platform to publish and make money.  While I respect that people need to protect their incomes, I think that a little loyalty wouldn't go amiss and that if needed we should all work to implement any changes that might be required.

    Good point - most positive I've read so far.

    Speaking as one of the poets, I am grateful for the platform HubPages has provided. I would hate to see my favorite site go under, but do not relish some  of the draconian measures offered in other threads.

    I have added other text, and RSS feeds, etc., to the poetry hubs to make them more viable as far as word count and fresh content is concerned.

    I do believe there is room here for photo hubs, too, though there are way too many "pictures of famous/cute young actress" hubs for my taste.

    I agree we should have no copied content and that truly low-quality hubs should be required to be rewritten, - and a twenty word blog post is not a hub!

    What a great article!  I have been waiting for the hosted video - that will be platinum!

    Hurray to the HP team!!!

    Any target dates for video?

    Should I hold off posting video to YouTube?

    Will HP have a Slideshare too!  Yes, I always am asking for more!  Video and Slideshare are great fitness instruction tools.  I like Slideshare because I can provide free downloads for instruction.
