The hubpages team has added interesting as a choice for feedback. I believe that another option for feedback should be "Inspiring"
I've just read 3 hubs that could inspire people and one of them has inspired me to think of this idea. I think it would be a great option for feedback.
I think an option something that outsiders can see which negatively highlights a hub could be a good idea. Struggling to find the right term to use- something like 'Poor' could be a consideration
I agree with you both, and that is why we need to also see the quantity of down votes we get, maybe that would help us to improve our hubs.
I know that many hubbers have poorly written hubs but they don't know that because people don't usually then them in the comments. If their/our vote downs are more than or even equal to the vote ups, it would make us step back and look at our hubs another time, tweaking it for the better if necessary.
The "Poor" one is an interesting consideration, but I can see a lot of drama coming from this. Forum flame wars could lead a person to "poor" vote all of someone's hubs and then that someone could get really hurt feelings.
What is stopping someone from down voting all of a specific person's hubs for the same effect, minus the ability for the victim to see it perhaps?
An issue maybe, but that perspective sounds a bit, "Kids can't play Dodgeball anymore because it promotes exclusionary attitudes"
I'm pretty sure as adults we should be more than capable of handling it, whether or not some may choose to be.
Of course melbel it would be a contentious issue which could lead to some difficulties. Some form of control would be required however at present you could go through and rate down everyone's hubs if such a thing was to happen.
Maybe- an 'Im sorry this article has not helped me' button would be a little more polite.
I think there should be one 'best I ever read'
no one will know if you say it more than once
Or better yet, I want to marry that avatar....just sayin'...
or I will have an affair with that avatar

I've been editing all my recipe Hub that transferred from Squidoo. There has always been a print option on the lens which was great for people viewing the lens and for me to print out to give to people. I can't find a print option for HP. Has anyone come across this?

I'd like to get some feedback from our authors on textlink ads.You've probably seen these on other sites. Usually they appear as double underlines under one or more phrases in the text of an article. When the viewer mouses over the phrase a small advertisement will float over the...

There is a new Hub Hopper that is available today. I've posted some details about it on the blog and set this thread up to discuss it and to get feedback. *Note, the Hopper is only collecting data right now, but will soon be used to select Hubs to feature.

While I like the new "Contact the author" button, some people are being absolutely bombarded with questions as a result. They are considering turning off the ability for others to contact them, because it is too much to handle. However, currently that would mean no one could...

I was just starting to go hub hopping today when I had a thought. What if there was a "hopper" for those of us who are interested in feedback on the quality of writing in our hubs? We could add our hubs to that list, and people could rate or comment on errors they find, or make...

Do you think HubPages could benefit from an edit suggestion button?If there was a button that let you anonymously point out grammatical errors and missing or mistyped words on other hubber's hubs that only they could see would you use it?
