This seems far better then just over a year ago. The new layout helps but it just feels like writers here are getting along better and being helpful. This is opposed to last year when I saw competition become more important then being neighborly. I am happy......It sure makes for a better writing atmosphere and increases my willingness to reach out to hubbers. Maybe it's just me but I like the change!
NOBODY IS GETTING ALONG. WHO ARE YOU TO SAY PEOPLE ARE BEING NICE. DON'T COME IN HERE AND TRY TO SPREAD YOUR HARMONY AROUND LIKE SOME KIND OF NICENESS BUTTER ON THE TOAST OF OUR DISCONTENT!
There's still blood being splattered all over the religion and political forums everyday, but the other forums do seem to be a kinder, gentler place.
Hell hath no fury like a Hubber scorned (or at least one who feels scorned, whether or not anyone ever planned or wanted to make him/her feel that way).
I like the atmosphere lately, too, and I've only been here two months. I've seen some positive changes and less drama, which is great. I do agree that things can get hot in certain forums or threads. I avoid most of those, but I have written some political things.
I much prefer the way the forums are now, too.
I used to hardly ever post because they were full of 'personalities' who thought they owned Hubpages.
Now that I own it, their silence is deafening!!
He was banned for 3 months. For chewing gum, I believe it was!
I'm sure it was the Chewing Gum Cod Piece and fishnets that he was caught wearing!
And No... it wasn't him Chewing the Gum, even though he had bent over backwards for many a passing stranger in the forums!
I told him not to wear them in the religious forums, but would he listen? NOOOO!
Let me guess! He sassed a hall monitor, right? That'll get you sent to the principal's office every time!
Yes, I know. But I must pretend I am shallow and therefore not implicit in anything untoward on these forums. The game, you know!
Yeah but they said that he did have nice legs though!
Fishnets always make legs look better! But then, I'm sure Cags knew that already!
He's been gone awhile now... are you sure he's not out there Drift Netting the Pacific.. with those special legs?
This time last year, Panda had just hit and many hubbers were seeing a drop of 50% or more in previously high traffic accounts. That can make anyone a little grouchy.

The forums are a place where many from HP gather to socialize, debate or ask for thoughts, opinions etc. to create a hub. I have sat silently and observed people being attacked or diverting the attack to make HP believe that they are the ones that were harmed. I am not saying that a person should...

I have noticed that the majority of the answers to the various posts I have read are by individuals with high Hub scores - and by a fairly small group of individuals, too. So, I deduce these answers are accurate, and they know what they're talking about (at least related to the posts I have...

I’ve been reading many questions on the forums about how to get more traffic to your hubs. I’m a great believer in testing something, analysing the results, refining and sharing, and I approached the subject of how to get hub views in a practical methodical way. I’ll share my techniques below...

Okay, I didn't really want to say anything about this originally, but I do take notice of a lot of things. Lately, in forums, I've been noticing that most hub users either don't respond to my posts, or they don't talk to me that often. Sure, there's a few of them that still do, but most...

I am really upset over the whole discussion about the Apprenticeship program. Now disgruntled hubbers want to have the badge removed form our profiles.When I became an "elite", when it was known as that, I was treated really badly by some petty hubbers. When I joined the AP program I fell...

I published a new Hub. Though I started several months ago, this is only my 5th Hub. I still don't know how to get traffic to my hubs. Can anyone help? This is my newest. Also can I format any links? I always feel limited and not sure if I can port my hub here. My Hub is called "Starting a...
