Is it useful for HP to rank writers by numbers? If yes what are the advantages to readers, writers and HP. Does a higher rank attract more views and would you automatically pay more attention to a higher ranking writier's articles?
I think it is for two reasons. One, it gives the readers (who are also writers in many cases) a numerical way to express their appreciation of a given writer's work. Two, it gives relevance to the examples of writers that one might want to emulate in terms of style and effort. I really do not look upon it as a contest so much as just an indicator of quality and interest. WB

Do you think Hubpages should take a harder stance to poorly written hubs?I hop hubs when I can, and find so many that are of poor quality. They have little to no content, or just one long text block. Don't get me started about the spelling or grammar.Should HP take more of a harder...

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the time of year, holidays, seasons, and current events to name a few. If left alone,...
