      This is a very bad sign, he had millions of views and made tens of thousands of dollars here.  Is that a toilet I hear flushing?  yikes

        He's down to three hubs left already!  Big loss to HP, but I'm sure that Ryan will be successful wherever he goes and whatever he does.

      Heck of a note. Thank you very much for the fyi! I have links to his hubs on my website. Am going to delete the broken links now... sad

    Interesting.  I have been trying to keep my overall hub numbers down to cope with all the maintainance issues that he mentions.  He's right that there is a lot of potential to learn about the internet and business and progressing, if you are so minded.

    I must admit that I actually now make more with my websites than I do on HP but I will not be giving up with HP just yet; they are still helping me to make a significant portion of my income and my online earning are all that I have to survive on at the moment.

    HP is where I first started to earn and learn the ropes and I am happy with the content that I have here... I have published now in many other locations but I still see the best results with HP other than with my own websites.

    (Conspiracy theory)  Is Ryan *really* leaving, or just moving his best hubs over to an HP account that isn't in his real name?  ;-)

    For what it's worth, my vote is for the latter.

    This is a HUGE loss for HubPages!  How could HubPages lose such a valuable player?  Does anyone know why he was banned from the forums?

      Actually Ryan banned himself from the forums on his primary account which uses his name. This was done a while back. If Ryan is truly leaving HubPages and eliminating all of his hubs from all of his accounts, then this is definitely not good.

      His help on the forums was vital to a lot of members when he was active in the forums. There were a few who would butt head with him, but he always tried to help regardless.

      I hope he finds all the success he wants. It's HP's loss.

        He honestly left he made that clear on the groups so many of us are involved with; but he has his own website and doesn't have enough time to give to another  site right now. smile

    That's a shame... yes indeed, Ryan will be missed!

    Wow... Ryan has been on HP for years and certainly has his head screwed on well with blogging/writing online. I'm positive he has gone on to better/higher things.

    Good Luck Ryan.... wherever you are..... (possibly lying on the beach of your Private Island) smile xx

    OMG!!! I never knew Ryankett left Hubpages! I also used him as an inspiration for my work and he was the best person to ask for any help for when i was a noob.

    What a shame. I knew he had a website, not sure what it was now, and i hope he has gone on to better things.

    HE was the most successful and fastest growing (in numbers) hubber i had met. We both started at the same time and he was grinding out amazing hubs every day! I'm sure he made tens of thousands of dollars in the short time he was here!

    Good luck my friend!
