Does anyone else wonder why HubPages does not have a History category?
Angie that is a very good question. It would be interesting because we are all part of our history, our family's history and our country's history.
I have a few history subjects. You have to select "Education and Science", then you will find a subcategory for history.
I agree that it seems a big enough subject to have it's own category-- but that's the way it is right now.
History and Archaeology are under Education and Science. I sometimes write History hubs.
I guess there are so many topics to write about HP would spend an eternity trying to accommodate us with them all but History is a broad enough topic to have its own category.
Far as I'm concerned, the category list should read like a college course catalog, or follow the Dewey Decimal System. Both seem to have worked well for universities and libraries for hundreds of years, so why not here too? This is a WRITERS community, after all, meaning we're all readers and if we haven't attended college, we're at least quite familiar with the DDS and the way it works.
But then, I've been pitching for a GENEALOGY (or the alternative, Family History) main category ever since I got here almost 4 years ago, but it's still buried as a sub-cat (or sub-sub-cat) of (IMHO) a totally irrelevant category, so I won't hold my breath for a History category.
Maybe they figure whats history is done or "The past is the oast you can lean from it or run from it".
Do they ned one?
what specific item do you need to expand on?
Maybe ' history' is too broad a category and is better as a sub category under education and science, like Mercia Collins wrote. If there was a History category you may need many many sub categories. For example; History-math and history-literature,history-American, history-art. Seems simpler the way hubpages has it set up.

The background: In the thread ‘If You Were To Date A Hubber Who Would It Be?’ Jenny (Inspirepub) rashly volunteered to join my vessel as did Cindy (mistyhorizon2003). Even as I write this, these two fine hubbing women are relaxing in separate parts of the ship as we inch our way through...

Does anyone from HubPages do any editing for these articles? I hop a few here and there to findmany, many, MANY poorly written, poorly spelled and unedited pieces that are hard to read, so I just have to ask the question; what does HubPages do, if anything, to ensure quality? What are writers doing...

I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch, and if they had thought about going back.
