    I hate to tell you this but, I am leaving hubpages and going:(  You also may have not seen me around here quite a while and thats because my cousin died. I am having a hard time now and now its just i cant be here anymore.

    I am leaving hubpages mainly because it is not the same as before. Before it was different. We had fun and our hubs were  inspiring and now because of these new rules, I cant publish even a single hub and i am like forced to write dull kind of hubs just to keep my hubscore above 70!

    I also have totally run out of ideas and i have to delete some of my hubs. Because of these new changes, There is NO fun writing hubs and being here at all. So goodbye everyone, I had a great time with you all. I hate to say goodbye but i have to.

      Sorry to hear about your cousin.

      HubPages is becoming a professional writer's heaven, I congratulate the site! Just after the Panda attack I became critical about HubPages, but to my utter surprise I'm now experiencing HubPages is taking only right steps to become no. 1 again and forever! I appreciate what they're doing.

      I would request you to stay here and fine tune your writing skills to write like pros. You'll be benefited in the long run, thanks! smile

      Take a break by all means, Jason, but don't delete the Hubs which are still OK.  Your Hub scores won't drop just because you're not here. 

      I know one Hubber who took a year off, but left all her Hubs published.  She couldn't believe it when she came back, checked her Adsense account and found she'd earned $100!  Especially because when she left, she'd only earned about $2.

      What's wrong with the Hubs you have to delete?  If they're duplicate content, then they definitely have to go - but most of the other problems are easily fixed.  It would be worth making the effort, even if you don't feel like writing any more right now.

      You could try signing up at another revenue-sharing site like Infobarrel or Excerptz, you might find it gives you new inspiration.  And don't forget to include links back to your Hubs, which will give them a boost too!

      I suspect that once all these shenanigans are over, HubPages will settle down again.  We had a similar drama when the 100 Hubs in 100 Days challenge was on - it didn't affect so many Hubbers, but a lot of people did leave.  Whether HubPages is ever as profitable again is debatable - but there's no reason it can't go back to being a writers' community.

        Welcome back!  I didn't know you back then, but I can see you went through some tough times.  This is a great community (which, it sounds like, was the case when you were here before).  So it's good to have you back & I am glad to meet you!

          Thank you Marcy! Glad to meet you too! Yeah, Those were tough times. Hub Pages then, As I can remember was very fun and good but suddenly people started to leave after some changes came along.  Anyway, I wish I could have all those hubs back which I wrote back then. Its a good thing though I found some friends are still here and haven't left. Thanks again!

    Don’t leave HP! Just take a vacation from it. Then return if/when you darn well feel like it! smile smile smile

      JASON NICHOLSposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I will think about that later. But you know, Even if i take a vacation and go, My hubscore and views will drop and then it will be hard to again gain them back. But thanks paradigmsearch.

        DoorMattnomoreposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        maybe not as hard as you think. maybe. I took a vacation, (not hp related) deleted all my hubs, my score went down to like...40. I came back just a bit ago and after on e hub, its back up. To... something above 40. 

        Just something to think about. It doesn't hurt to leave your profile and come back later if you change your mind. When your feeling stronger and better and more ready for the world. Its easier to restart an existing account then to start a whole new one. At least it has been for me.

        I'm sorry for your loss, and I hope things look up for you soon. Best wishes in whatever you decide to do.

          Thanks a lot DoorMattnomore! Apreciated your comment. I will have to think about it. But half my mind is saying to leave hubpages and the other half is saying do not leave Hubpages.
          Who should i listen to?

            I don't know.... when my mind wont agree, I do nothing right off. It makes me look lazy sometimes....but oh well. I like being at least 70 percent sure of my decisions.

    paradigmsearchposted 6 years ago

    If you permanently leave, your hubscore will then automatically be zero for all eternity. This will bring civilization to an end as we know it. Think of your societal responsibilities! Do not do this to us! Don’t leave so that we may continue to live. Besides, it will probably be fun to check your revenue after a month or so. Free money is free money. smile smile smile

    Home Girlposted 6 years ago

    So you do not have anything to say to the world?
    Just because you have to pay more attention regarding of "what" and "how" and "when"?
    Is a challenge not an inspiration by itself?
    It's just a mood, let it pass. Enjoy your world or suffer it, Just tell us about it, we are ready to listen - on your terms, in due time.

    sorry to hear about your cousin.
    why not listen to some of the others=- leave your hubs and take a break, get yourself in a happier frame and then decide- it is better to make a valued judgement than a snap decision

    Hi Jason - you were fun and we made a connection.  Leave your hubs - the ones they let you leave, try somewhere else, take a break - and maybe come back refreshed sometime.

    Good luck.

    Very sorry to hear about your loss.  And ours.  But, it appears writers are leaving the very reasons you have stated.  Sad day indeed

    I think so that i should not leave and insted take a vacation. I miss you all a lot and if i leave i will miss you more. I have made some good friends over these months and one of them is Mark Ewbie.
    I might not leave after all then.

    I'm sorry for your loss.  I've recently suffered one myself and am finding it hard to get in the mood to write.  I don't write what HP is going for either.  I'm not into "How Tos" and think there is plenty of room here for folks who want to inspire and/or entertain.  I've found HP more boring than it used to be, but I'm coming up on my two year anniversary and maybe the "new" has just worn off.  You sound like the kind of writer I like to read.  Hope you'll reconsider.

      Uh actually Kathleen, I am back now. I was here before like 2 or 3 years ago. If you read the first post above, It was posted 21 months ago. That's when I left. I do feel good to be back. Still, I need to update myself to all the new changes that came to Hub Pages from the time I left. I am sorry for your loss Kathleen. Soon as time passes one can get over it and you know, Move on in life.

      lol Thank you Horatio! I sure can bet that this thread is not some time warp sci-fi thread. Its just that I was lucky to find my own old thread here on Hubpages. I am glad it didn't get deleted. Pleased to meet you too mate.

    Hi Jason!  I've been here 4 years, maybe we knew each other before.  It  used to get really crazy here in the forums with a bunch of cut-ups!
