What is with this "new normal" of constant change on hubpages ? My hubscore is dropping like a gas guage in a dodge truck ! Kinda makes me want to score hubs !
sort by best latest
exactly scores are for scoreboard watchers .. post write .. write post ..it is in the comments that are left that tell you your scores ..1
Take a look at what the others around you are saying and just accept the fact they are tanking. I mean Will Starr for God's sake??
Those of us working with the changes and requirements are not tanking and the whole point of improving the site is to bring it back up. Status quo doesn't equate to growth. Change is hard sometimes, but necessary.
Tell that to 99% of the people on this site. People are leaving in droves. Even Simone has left the building... lol
Simone started her own company. 99% of people aren't leaving and for those who do leave, others will sign up. Sorry, but we don't make the rules here. Writing of mine that doesn't fit here, I publish elsewhere instead of complaining.
Afraid to speak the truth because yo may lose a hubber point or two?? And yes, people are leaving and joining democratic sites. Not communist sites like this one. Oh, and do you get pet points for reporting so many questions??
I don't find fault with what they want to be, but it is not a site for pure writers. It's a site for those who like to employ keywords and understand things like SEO's in order to attract traffic.
I'm not complaining. I'm just withdrawing.
I haven't reported any questions - why are you being so hostile? My score is due to the quality of my hubs and hard work. I am speaking the truth as I see it, no need to be rude because someone doesn't agree with you. You started in on me.
Just a joke. :) Sorry if I OFFENDED YOU. Only Joking
I'm familiar with your "jokes" JT. Will I agree this isn't the best platform for creative writing and short stories, I removed mine and put them in other locations. Have you guys looked at Bubblews? You could def make money there :)
I sure have and have joined the site. Thanks. Again, I was only kidding with you.
Somehow, I KNEW you were joking with Christin..it looked like you were trying to be "authoritive" like the big shots from HP. Better stick to your usual "sweetness!" We women bite back! and that's no JOKE!
Kissing Google's arse is not what I thought HP stood for when I joined. I realize it's a business, but for pete's sake...I'm a tad ashamed at this point.
Well, I wish you would submit somewhere and let me know WHERE. I need a fix. I am even re-reading things I have already read.
I can't imagine why they would say that. It must be a computer error. I enjoy what you write.
Not Will Starr , post Will ! You are an awesome writer ! I know now will its all of us ! Shall we write a hub about weed whackers or how to properly wear socks !LOL......come on back Will!
Same here, WS. I'm actually thinking of movin' on. Sad, after 4+ years!
My Hubscore is 81, and most of my work is no longer featured because it is 'substandard'. My highest rated Hub is a lowly 78, and the lowest is 41.
My score is lower than ever now, as well. I think that they're over their heads with this featured/nonfeatured business, as well. Becky, I have a hub and pretty much went through the same thing with them that you did. I almost gave up.
While I agree that change can be good and that everything does change , there is as well , something positive to be said for and maintaining consistency !...The new western business culture is" extreme makeovers" , its Not always the best thing !
if anything it's trying to revive its business to be profitable and competitive by initiating necessary changes. Do I agree with all of them? not necessarily, but I appreciate the efforts at improvement. It's their business model not ours.
It is their site, agreed. But, it is my "time" that has been wasted over ridiculous word counts. C'mon... this is called hubpages.. not e-book pages
On that point we can def agree, the word counts get silly at times, especially with recipes - how do you make a 1500 word recipe? lol
Soo.. a smart business man does change but for the better .. you do chase away your customers ../ if people stop posting .. then HP must close .. bad business to criticize the people that make your business.
JThomp..? HP IS this site! We're the peons.and we just don't all follow all the hundreds of rules & regs that discourage us, berate us, degrade our talents, mess with our sanity, shove keywords and SEO up our__es... and ALL this for 12 cents a d
I want to know what I can fluff my Typos in a Hub hub with. It is only 400 words, but it says it all. Now unfeatured for quality.
Yes, we feel now a 'Titanic experience' here. Who will survive? Only the God knows!
Good observation. My author scored went down to 86 today. I will be worried if it go below 75. What can we do to prevent the sudden erosion? Any tips?
well actually if more hubbers visited others hubs ..this site would be prospering ..but because it is not your type of writing or what you want to read this in turn hurts others scores because and starts a downward spiral that affects all
True in what you say, but I read all my hub mail each day. I only get around 25/30 visits a day so I'm reading more hubs than I get visits. Seems the balance is way out.
