      I'll admit, I almost fell for the HubPages/Pinterest teamup over photos, haha.

    Lol, well, good thing I know basic French. Don't know if I'll be able to translate into Spanish though. =/

    Too bad the lawyers wouldn't let them omit that one sentence. lol

    Darn, they left out my suggestion that all hubbers receive an e-mail detailing the exact reason for every tiny fluctuation in their traffic.

    Think of how much load that would take off the forum servers!

    Come to think of it, I wonder what google is up to today...

    After reading the first one, I thought, eh, what's up with this? Then I glanced to see the author and date..

      I copied it to my blog. Deleted the one sentence. And then tweeted it from there.

    Fortunately many of my hubs are practically already in French. I just have to replace the words I said with the words I was thinking of.

    I posted a reply to that

    =======start of copy and paste ========

    Estamos contentos de anunciar una serie de cambios fabulosos aquí en HubPages. Esperamos que los disfruten tanto como nosotros lo hacemos:

    HubPages asumirá la propiedad de todas las fotos originales que has subido al sitio. Vamos a colaborar con Pinterest reunirlos en un libro que se pondrán a la venta. Por desgracia, no vamos a ser capaces de compartir los ingresos con Hubbers para ello.

    Estamos modificando el diseño de los cubos de anuncios y la disposición impresiones compartido. A partir de ahora, la participación del autor de las impresiones que se producen en las dos últimas unidades de los lunes y jueves entre las 2 am y las 3:30 am, mientras que todas las impresiones de los anuncios de otros será en la cuota de HubPages mujeres.

    Vamos a seleccionar, a los usuarios al azar, 10 en el sitio todos los días de la prohibición. Debido a que la selección se hará al azar, nuestro equipo de soporte no será capaz de dar orientación sobre por qué eligió nuestro algoritmo de la prohibición de ciertas Hubbers. Tenga en cuenta que usted todavía tiene acceso a sus Hubs, cuando se le prohibió si quieres publicarlas en otros lugares.

    Hubs tendrá que tener un mínimo de 3.000 palabras que se publicará, a excepción de concentradores de poesía, que sólo tienen que tener un mínimo de 2.750 palabras cada uno.

    Cada cubo debe ser traducido al español y al francés. Animamos a la traducción al chino mandarín, también, pero hemos optado por hacer que la opcional.

    Puesto que el personal lee todos los concentradores, cada comentario, y cada mensaje en el foro, vamos a votar cada contribución Hubber de la calidad y la positividad, y HubberScore cada toma clasificación en. Tenga en cuenta que muchos (más de 3) hacia abajo-evaluación puede resultar en una prohibición.

    Gracias por ser tan entusiasmados con estos cambios y como somos. Y, si no era suficientemente obvio, Feliz Día de los Inocentes!

    =============================
    ok, I hope I’m good in getting text translated from English to Spanish (with Google Translate)
    If this looks fine, I will use this (Google Translate) for my future Hubs

    =======end of copy and paste ========


    Hope they don't ban my HP account.. smile

        They should do it annually in all twelve districts, with hubbers getting their name put in more times depending on how many years they've been on the site. Then they could have a fierce hub-writing competition with only one of them coming out alive.








        That's right.







        I'm talking about...







        The Hubber Games.

    They should have included one 'improvement' that rather than getting money, we get revenue deductions if we refer writers who can't meet these new guidelines.
