I would like to suggest that when we click on a link within a hub, that it opens into a new window.
I know this option is available by right clicking but I don't believe 'Joe Public' does this often. The advantage of opening into a second window, is that the original page is still active and the viewer can come back to it after reading the link.
This allows us, the writers, to spread applicable links throughout the page, not just at the end of our hub. It also encourages people to leave a comment as once they go to another page, they may be gone for good.
Thanks for the suggestion, Blond Logic. Whether or not to open links in a new window or not is usually left to the preferences set by individuals in their browser. It's really a person choice and not one that most well designed web sites force on user.
As such, I'm inclined to not make this change and let each user's web browser preferences make the choice.

Don't know if this is the correct term, but my back button, arrow thingy, doesn't seem to be working for question/answer. It's also refused to work on a hub just now. It seems to work fine everywhere else. Have tried refreshing the browser. Any comments?

I'm a newbie and I just discovered the customizable home page. It's VERY cool and VERY well implemented.But one thing I miss from the standard home page is seeing my author score. On the standard home page, my profile picture has the author score superimposed on the lower right corner...

I would love to have an option to save hubs on some kind of reading list. Often I will be browsing hubs and find one that I want to read, but then something comes up and I have to walk away from the computer. By the time I come back, my computer might have fallen asleep, or my husband turned it...
