Hub Hopping and Pictures

    I used to 'hub hop' just to find interesting articles, but I didn't know what the 'help us' referred to.

    After the recent fracas, I realised that some hubs are classed as 'low quality', or negative in other ways, so I will flag some to be checked ~ if they seem too short; or if they are just adverts, or if they link to indecent sites, etc.

    But what should I do about pictures?
    Some are obviously 'sub-standard' and are just collections of pictures of girls, copied from ther Internet, without any reference to copyright, etc.

    However, there are others, which show beautiful works of art, on the part of the hubber. Some are photographs; some are drawings. They are full of talent. But there is often little or no text.

    Does the low word count issue still stand?

    I know what you mean. I saw one that had beautiful photos of a location in India-- but it wasn't an "article".
    It gave little or no information about the photos. I liked the pictures, but it was substandard in my opinion.
    If you flag something it ONLY means it is a suggestion for the moderators to make a judgment or give advice to the author to make revisions.

    Thanks, Rochelle.

    I know what you mean, but I feel terrible marking something so good as 'sub standard'. smile

      YOU are not deeming it "sub standard", but ONLY calling it to the attention of those who may --or may not-- find that it meets their standards.
      They can also give the person a chance to improve it, and give it a better chance to be seen by more people.

    It's not really whether something is "good" or not. It's whether it meets HP's criteria. As for the photo hubs, I think they should all be ditched from here and put over on Flickr where they belong. Be that as it may, they are perfectly acceptable here as long as they are categorized correctly under "photo galleries" or whatever the categories are. Why HP allows a collection of stolen photos to be here on a writing site is beyond me. Maybe desi aunties really do rake in the bucks.

    Thank you for responding, Rochelle and Irohner smile smile

    So, photo galleries are ok??
    I didn't know that.
    Does the minimum number of words rule still stand?

    If they contain the good and original work of the hubber, that seems ok ~ except that it is, as you say, a writing site ~ but other collections of pictures seems less acceptable, to me.

      Trish,  there is a section for art and photography and hubs coming under that category are exempt like poetry... art is a class apart smile as long as it is not soft porn.

    Thanks, Sof, I didn't know that.

    I can appreciate the arty hubs, but not the collections of 'borrowed' glamour pictures smile

    Also, I just read on another thread that the number of photos we can post on our general hubs may be limited. Is that true?
