You'll find the answer to this question in my new article.
'The Butter Truth'
Please read it, and comment.
I'd really, really appreciate it. This is the
first article that i published online, so please
tell me how I did.
Roxy, perhaps you could word your invitation differently, sending people to your profile and have the information there.
Would this be better, Mischa?
I really don't know. Since Roxy is new, I think it would be a nice gesture to let her know how she can use HubPages.
Any other ideas of help from people?
Actually just posting some meaningful reply on any other thread on the forums does the job just fine. Before I came to this thread I already went to Roxy's profile and looked at her hub - because I saw her post on another thread, and she is new, and it is always interesting to take a look at who just came in
And wording wouldn't help here - it is still unwanted post. If everybody starts opening threads for their new hubs, forums become cluttered and unreadable...
Yes, It's always good to check out new people's profiles.
Thanks, Mischa! bjp
LOL She could
And shouldn't one stay away from writing and publishing hubs if they couldn't even post a meaningful comment on forums?
I think what Misha is saying is this: if we all started a new thread every time we wrote a new Hub, the forums would be overwhelmed. That's why it's frowned on.
If people see a relevant thread in the forums and post a Hub link in response, that's fine. Or if they start a new thread opening up a discussion on a topic, the discussion gets a few posts and THEN they post a link to their Hub, that's also fine.
It's been suggested a few times, that perhaps there should be a section in the forums called "Feedback" where people could post Hubs for review - which would keep them quarantined.

Some of us are encountering an issue in the forum. On the front page, it will indicate that responses have been made since we last participated in a thread, but when we click on the name of the most recent respondent,...

While it is quite natural to have disagreements, we should at least be civil about it However, this is a point missed by some people. Some people seem NEVER to let disagreements alone, they prefer to troll,...

Hello all,I was just checking around in my activities to see where I spent too much time (reading in forum threads I am shocked that people write in) on HP or not enough time lately (minding my own business, I guess)....

HubPages does not use a flat forum structure but replies are placed underneath the post to which they reply. This means that when a thread becomes huge people can still place posts in the middle of the thread. In other...

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much...
