Should hubpages add some games to their site to attract more people to join?
If Hubpages add games to this site I will delete every single one of my Hubpages immediately.
There's already enough fun and games going on here as it is! LOL!
No votes for any games from me. I came to this site because it's mostly all about Hub-writing (and Hub-reading). The forums offer a diversion from those, as well as info and occasional ideas for (what else?) Hub-writing. If games were to show up on here, I'll be following those other people who said they'd be out of here. (Anybody sense a train forming? )
I joined because I love writing and reading interesting articles. One of my friends was complaining because there wasn't any games on here. I was just curious to see what everyone else thought.
Phoebe, there's nothing wrong with being curious, asking, or liking games, for that matter. It's just that I know I signed up here because the site was pretty much nothing but writing and kind of "all business" (except for the forums). I didn't intend for my quick, candid, answer to come across as "heavy handed". (I'm not a fan of games, though, and would really hate to see them on here. )
I don't believe you, Ryan, Lisa and Lisa. A few fun games can't touch you.
This is a writing site, not Facebook. I agree with others, I would be looking elsewhere also if this became a game site.
I think games would be fine. Hey if I have to put up with the venom of the politics and religious forums and the sexual inuendo that runs rampant in the forums (Even if I don't look, forum topics end up on hubs.), a few games can't be anymore irritating.
I might even play a few once in a while.
Yousaytoo has flash games section which is not interfering with content. I don't mind flash games section on subdomain - games.hubpages.com (without any leak from hubs/sidebar obviously).
It isn't game site,it is for writing and reading interesting articles but I like if they create separate site for games.
We'd have people joining just for the games, just like some people already join just for the Forums. Not such a good idea.
We already have sandpit.. I love word games before I go to bed.
I'm not a real fan of the online types of games on offer on Facebook and other social networks they are addictive to some but not me...I just find them a waste of time!
World of Warcraft though is quite good and is a very different entity as you can play with gamers all around the world, but even still I don't have time for such time wasting antics!
If we played these games to earn money somehow, then I'd be playing them all the time every minute of the day, even whilst asleep I would be thinking about playing them games.....
Yes, I tried playing some of the games on FB, but they didn't really hold any appeal for me.
I've heard of people actually getting into debt to have enough credits to build up their farm on Farmville quicker than anyone else. I don't understand it. I tried Farmville over a year ago and found it quite pointless ... maybe I'll go over and take a look at my farm - I'm pretty sure my livestock has starved and my crops gone to seed.
I hate it when your friends just start to send you notifications for this and that on Facebook and Farmville is perhaps the top one that annoys I've banned all of them from reaching my notifications.

Just curious on how long it takes to make a profit on the site.

Is the growth sustainable? When I arrived 4 months ago, we had 400,000 hubs. What is it now, 500,000? Does this site really benefit from people writing almost identical hubs on the same topics?When somebody arrives they are told to write, write, write, write. 30 in 30 basically. I am being a little...

I have been pleased with the audience and revenue for my articles on HubPages since joining the site some years ago.I commend the company for creating the successful niche sites at a time when similar sites were folding. My existing articles that moved to those sites have done even better than...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

It is hard to see that Bubblews threads have a place in the Hubpages section of the forums.Could another place be found for them?

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...
