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.

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 and...

This forum has no ongoing moderation, so people are likely to emerge into passive-aggressive banter, or attack or defense mode. Without intervention these behaviors are rather common, if not typical to the human being.

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...

In your experience and from your observations, are there Hubbers that are afraid of other Hubbers? Do you believe that something can and should be done to remove such fear?

I have read quite a few hubs recently where people have been upset by disgusting or just plain rude comments directed at their work, mainly by anonymous hubbers with no content, and also stealing other peoples hubs. My question is, do you think they should be allowed to join and stay...

As jimmythejock was quick to pick up on a few days ago (man, he's good!), we have been working hard on coming up with a new overall look and feel for HubPages and in the process we've also added a few cool, new features that we think you'll all really like. We'll be launching this new redesign...
