What are some adjectives hubpages could add?
Just to throw one out there...informational?
On my blog I added : "boo" ... I'd like to know if I write something that my dedicated fan base doesn't like. Keeps it real for me and personally I always invite constructive criticism and an adjective like that usually opens the door for a conversation.
I've been thinking those are boring too. Thinking of changing on my blog but not sure what to.
rhyming? sad, bad, mad, rad? wah, blah, ha, ta,
LOL, ROFLMAF, WTF?
smokin', hot, lame, limp, sick, tame, ?
I cannot stand the trite use of the word "awesome" that I see everywhere.
On one blog of mine, I've changed the options to:
3. I've never heard of that!
They sum up what I am looking for when I read anything other than fiction.
I tried changing my blog responses to funny, helpful and crap. But needless to say some malfunction in the browser prevented me from doing it.
Need to have another go.
Why would I want to do such a thing? Because everything about the world of Like does my head in.
hmm... my stats read:
I assume that last one stands for "Written terrifically"
It's for emotional stuff, poetry, writing that makes you soar, personal experience. Sometimes writing can move you to higher places, totally wrap you in a shared feeling, at one with the author and their story.
Crap like that.
When I was at school, the same comment of "could try harder" was at the bottom of every report, from every teacher. Maybe this would be useful on here.
My art teacher used the word "interesting" said with a very particular intonation.
"thrilling, honestly thrilling", "gross, really gross", "over my head, but very nice" and "must tell me mum about this one"
How about a button that says:
"I laughed. I cried. It became a part of me. It was much better than Cats. I'm going to see it again and again."
cool, groovy, neat, nifty, peachy keen, swell, not bad.
I'd like to see awesome taken out - yes it's an overused adjective that has lost it's real meaning.
I really like Informative.
Informative (I learned something today!)
Useful (as it says - I can use this information)
Inspiring (hit the motivational bone)
Funny (made me laugh)
Beautiful (for use with poetry or a hub that has touched the heart).
I am against a negative response, it's not what this site is about.
These are the uncreative rigid professional responses. I really like what Rochelle and Greg Sage suggested.
Are you able to do something about Awesome. It's very American, not that that is not a good thing! But see - unique things make your jaw drop and your eyes widen. Hubs can be wonderful. But awesome?
How about "brilliant"? Would that be the Brit equivalent of Awesome?
Yes, it might be a bit of an Americanism, but I think it's universally understood. And, yes, many, many Hubs are awesome. (Of course, that's always a matter of opinion, but apparently thousands of readers agree)
Jason, is that because they don't have another option more suitable?
Suggest one, Jewels. What do you think?
I'd prefer Inspiring. but according to the Oxford it's means the same as awesome. I think I have a distaste for Awesome because it's overused and does not fit with the subject matter - in real life moreso. You remember how the word basically was being used in every sentence when someone was expressing themselves. Well basically I think Awesome is up there with basically!
Shall be watching the space for an "interesting" button then I'd like one of those.x
I would too, sometimes I find a hub interesting not beautiful or awesome. I agree, 'awesome' is trite.
does no one see the brilliantness of "gotta show this one to me mum" ?
"Interesting" is now live on your Hubs.
Kudos to Edward for this!
This is an interesting development, especially for those of us who find things interesting and don't want to go all awesome.
BTW-- I think 'interesting' is POSITIVE, and hope no one sees it as dismissive.
One thing that some people may not realize.... You can click more than one of these buttons on a hub. It can be both interesting and funny, or even useful and interesting.
THanks! I think a lot of people have wanted this,
Extra Kudo to Edward.
Good! I agee with Rochelle Frank - "interesting" is positive feedback - I for one love to read interesting hubs to learn new stuff.
I just noticed that the interesting button was added! Thanks HP for listening! Maybe not to me, but to someone.
also, completely off topic, but my domain name switch was completely flawless and easy...I'm impressed.

As many of you know, HP has recently provided us with a number of new ways to record feedback to the writers of hubs. In addition to just making ordinary comments, you can now add reinforcing clicks by simply checking the words "Useful", " Funny", "...

"useful, funny, awesome, beautiful", why is there no "facinating" button for those amazing hubs?There are some hubs that I have read and they deserve a facinating vote.
by Linda Crampton 8 years ago
The "Useful, Funny etc." ratings are not being updated on my most recent hub and on some other people's hubs. On my hub people tell me in the comments section that they've given me a rating, but it hasn't appeared under my hub or in my profile, even after two days. I've seen the same...

Let us compile a list of why HP writers are awesome. I will start:We are still here.

Is there an easy way to see which of your hubs have been rated as Useful or Awesome or whatever?Obviously we can look at each hub one by one and see how many "useful" votes each one got, but is there a more efficient way to go about this that I don't know about?

"That's interesting" is a comment I make all the time.So I'm glad they added it to our hubs.
