    ATTN: Jason

    I am free on weekends. I volunteer to moderate hubs in my spare time.

    Your absence from forums is hurting a lot of people and site in general, as the real forum moderators are moderating moderators! smile, and you have to post/cover for them here more often these days. Because all of them are too busy/or ignore (or deprioritize - [is that a real word]?!smile) the staying members' suggestions/grievances/rants and raves/ deliberatly - I offer you this.

    I am a very loyal kind of person. I have learned a lot after joining HP around 4 years ago, mostly from You, Jason, as I always thought that you are the most cool-headed person on the site and the the best employee HP can ever have. You have encouraged me to write and stay on as livelonger.

    Now I have my own developed sites. I do not have to depend on HP for my online income. But I will still stay and contribute, however ferocious I may sound in forums, or blog comments.

    I would be real sad to see HP being ridiculed as a whole internet entity. HP is almost like an Alma Mater thing to me.

    I can see that you are under a lot of pressure right now and the strains are showing. Please do not take this post as an attack on you. I genuinely want to help. And this is all I can offer.

    ( I really meant it when I offerd to edit the wiki for you.)

    Warm Regards
    Your Fan, always

        I simply don't see the point of your open post.
        Send him an email if you genuinely want to help. smile

          Thanks for the suggestion. The post was not addressing you, any way.

          Send me his email id (not the general HP id, please), if you wish to help.

          And I will delete this thread.

          Best Regards

            I know the post is addressing Jason, on a public forum.  That opens it to anyone.

            Every hubber and staff member have their contact info on their profile.  That's probably the best way to contact him and let him know you want to help.

              Really? You are the best rebeks. Thank you for showing me the light.

    I don't think they would allow volunteers to be able to remove hubs, but there is a way community members could help if the Hub Team would allow to certain members they trusted and gave the proper guidelines to.

    1. Close "Spam Forum Threads." (weekends when moderators are off work)
    2. Ability to view an unpublished hub that has been flagged for some chosen violations. This could help to teach how to repair the problems without endless e-mails back & forth to HP.


    * if a hub has been published, indexed and then unpublished, a hubber can get a cache of the page and show this to allow community members to assist in Hub Make-Over.
    * if any of these were to be allowed, the community would need to remember that these volunteers would be "volunteering" and not be attacked because the results are not what they wanted to hear!

    HP might give these some thoughts or say no to all of these. I know people have volunteered to help in the past. At the same time, HP has to protect themselves from errors made by volunteers that could caused a greater problem.

      It's not as if the paid mods don't make mistakes too. We've observed this several times lately.  I wonder what experience the new mods have in doing this type of work? Or if they are writers themselves?  Or if they even exist at all? 

      Seems like lately I've had to flag an inordinately large amount of new followers who should never have been allowed to publish in the first place.  Sigh!  smile

        This is true. New moderators have made some mistakes and HP has said that. I know there is a lot for them to work on. I do not envy there work.
        I know I have flagged a lot of material through Hub Hopping. And when I have flagged I believe I saw serious violations that would hurt the entire site if left unmarked.
        I still believe to improve the material published by newer members there should be a setting for the first few be moderated first to see if the members has grasped the rules and guidelines. But, it is not up to me for that. lol, I am just another member like the rest.

          Common sense dictates such a trial program, Michael.  However, money tends to override common sense in many businesses.  IMHO!

      I agree!  She's entitled to her opinion, just as those who disagree with her method of making it known.  smile

        This is nothing, compared to the ways, HP is making new improvements/rules/whatever to the site - conveyed to the hubbers. That rebecka is wright, I shoul've been more covert! smile

        Best to you Randy smile
