I found this in my email this morning, I have an odd feeling that it might not be legit. The reply address does not look right to me (I changesd it to prevent it being a link).
Also why would Jason send it in his name and it refers to top hubbers quote -
"2uesday - could you take our 1-question survey of top Hubbers?"
- which I know and I think he would know I am not. what is a 1 question survey? You can see why I am suspicious and will not respond until I have other people's opinion on it. Is someone trying to get my email response or is it for real? It maybe that lots of us got this and if it is not legit then mentioning here is good at the worst I will look foolish (not for the first time)
Here is the email -
Hi there, 2uesday,
We'd love to get feedback from Hubbers who have had some success publishing Hubs on HubPages. Would you mind taking a moment or two to help us out by answering our simple, one-question survey? Your feedback would be very valuable to us:
Thank you so much!
Thanks for reading this and any advice on it will be appreciated.
I got it - didn't even think about it as being a spoof - I clicked the link and was taken to a one question survey - LOL and what a question - you essentially are filling out a Google Doc - which I have seen Hubpages use before - the only information you give is your Hubpages username - no other info....
Thank you SimeyC, I guess I win today's prize for being over cautious.
It's legitimate although based on the people who did and didn't get the email, the choices for "top hubber" seems to be based on questionable criteria.
How do we know who did and did not get the email?
- As I am curious about how I got included, I am not a 'front of house' Hubber and on some days my traffic would make some of the 'high flyers' weep.
I am aware of some hubbers who are top earners and have been here a long time who didn't get the email, while others who may be well known but are not high earners or have many hubs did get the email.
The only way to know who did or did not get the email depends on who wants to reveal that information.
Thanks QuestionMaster I thought there might have been another forum post on this one that I had missed. Not sure why I got it really.
I got the email - at first I thought it was an attempt at phishing so I ignored it but now I realise it's legit, I've answered it!
I received it also and responded.
I know WryLilt also received it and responded. She posted her response as a picture on Facebook.

I have noticed that the number of forums and interaction between hubbers has been declining over the past year. What do you think is causing it?

Could the HubPages team please explain why some of us are getting warnings about non-compliant Hubs, but others are having their Hubs unpublished with no warning?I saw this post on another thread today:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/74842#post1623078and it's not the first time I've seen Hubbers...

I am having a bad day - I've been ill for a week, son #2 has now been ill for a month, husband came home yesterday full of despair at not getting promotion and much needed pay rise. So this morning I gave myself my usual half-baked pep talk about my new 'career' online. Then came on HP for a...

I can't believe that I'm ranked behind people who just link up American Idol highlights.I asked Hubpages what the deal was and they gave me a runaround. I'm starting to think this is all BS! Please help renew my faith.

I'm sort of an editor by instinct, and while I never catch everything, and I certainly don't catch everything in my own writing, I often noticed the overlooked typo or common grammar error when reading other people's work.How do most of you feel about receiving corrections? Obviously I wouldn't...
