I tried to hop this morning and it would not work, so I left it. Returning tonight It appears to have gone! There is a button asking me to claim my subdomain ( which I have done thank you very much) but no hopping button. HELP!!! I am totally bereft this hub hopping is the only exercise I get! Can anyone find it for me?
i too noticed a 'claim your subdomain' warning icon on my page and thought it was odd since I had done that already but thought it was a glitch or something so I did it again. Hope that didn't leave me open to hacking or something. And oddly, the icon was right back again even after I "claimed" my subdomain the second time.
You can still access the hopper here, the link on my account just went away temporarily.
All I got in reply was spam! I think I shall go and do some knitting now I can't hop!
Hmm. I know that since we've been stuck with that new feed on our signed-in/home page (and that forces a bunch of Hubs on us, whether we want to see them or not), I've been flagging and voting down left and right. Maybe HP knows that if it forces stuff on people that's going to aggravate them, they'll be that much more in the mood to flag and vote down stuff they REALLY find low quality and aggravating. (I haven't hopped since that switch to the new home page. I liked the old way, where we'd see only Hubs written by people we follow (but that meant hopping would be a separate activity, because I only follow "a certain type" of Hubbers (namely, the ones who generally write decent quality stuff) .
Correction to above: Turns out I finally got rid of the unwanted Hubs on my page. Clears my page (and consequently, head) so I can go looking for what I wanted to find my own way.

I have been hub hopping lately and I am disgusted with the incoherent garbage that I am coming across - nothing but poorly translated articles of about 400 words, usually without even any formatting. I would say that more than half of the articles I randomly encounter are clearly nothing but spun...

I have read numerous hubs while hopping that I thought would be great if the writer did some editing or word smithing. I thought it would be nice to let people know that thier piece could be so much better with out trying to hurt anyones feelings. I have commented on a couple of pages...

What does everyone think of the new "Hub Hopping" process?Maybe, it's just me, but it is a little frustrating, and it was fun, but now? Not so sure about it. I may just need to adjust to it and keep at it before I make any final conclusions.

Have you ever come across any of your hubs while hub hopping?

Why are some hubs included for hub hopping?I recently started this interesting activity here. When thousands of hubs are published daily, on what basis are hubs selected for hub hopping. It is mostly new hubbers, but I have seen hubs of established hubbers with more than 150 hubs. I never saw any...

I was really excited when I saw this new feature because I thought it was a great way to support, get to know and interact with other hubbers...But...for the most part, with some exceptions it is a load of garbage. When I think of all the painstaking time I take putting a hub together...and I...
