      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.

      good point...I guess I was thinking of an additional way to reward the author for the profile content...

        I think the best way to reward an author is by reading their hubs, sharing, tweeting, etc.

    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.
