b. bad idea.
As Arlene says, Hubber Scores are just an ego trip and do nothing for your earnings on HubPages. I often wish HP would just retire them.
And though I love the community here, I often think HP offers too many "social" features already, to the point where some people seem to think it's a social networking site first and a writing site second. So adding another would definitely not get my vote.
We already have that. It's that green "Follow" button...
good point...I guess I was thinking of an additional way to reward the author for the profile content...
If there's one thing on this site that does NOT require voting, it's profiles...
How are you to "reward" the writers who don't have profiles??? Do you like reading what people write about themselves? We're all experts on the Internet. Read someone's WORK instead! Maybe you like writing fan mail, too??? Follow someone, and you can do that.
"This would increase Hubber Scores?" Who cares! GET THIS THROUGH YOUR HEAD: Hubber Scores don't make you money! Send the author some pennies, instead! Or a minimum $50 payout! This will make you very popular around here.
b. and c: BAD IDEA AND STICK TO READING/WRITING HUBS.

Following this button and receiving countless e-mails about the 'Vote Up and Vote Down' button, is it possible to just eliminate the down button on this site? I believe it would not effect the (algo) of our hubs, but would allow the scores to remain somewhat steady and not drop tremendously when it...

How do you feel about having a VOTE UP button only?I'm all for constructive feedback for hubs, but feel the VOTE DOWN option doesn't do anything to assist a writer with content or grammatical aspects. If you don't like the content etc then don't vote it up. It's that simple.

It's been pointed out on another thread that the voting buttons probably mean people are LESS likely to use the "share" buttons.Hubbers like to support other Hubbers and it's all too easy to hit the voting buttons and think we've done our bit - when in fact, we've done almost...
