About Hubski http://hubski.com/about
- Here are a couple of basic features I'll leave it to less biased users to sell them: You have three symbols under your name on the upper left: a hubwheel, a badge, and a follower icon, with counts to the right of them.
The hubwheel goes around and completes as you use the site, and others appreciate and share your contributions. Every time you complete a hubwheel, you earn a badge that you can award to another user's post or comment. Click 'badges' in the menu on the left to see what has recently been badged by others. The center of the hubwheel turns orange if you have non-dismissed notifications. once you earn 1 hubwheel, you can also start adding community tags to posts
The badge icon keeps track of how many badges others have given you.
The follower icon is pretty self-explanatory. Click the 'markup' link on the top right of a textbox to see how to do text functions like shout outs to other users, like this one to b_b. In general markup requires book-ending text with symbols. Under 'controls', you can switch your hubski style. In addition to dark, you can choose 'snow', 'clean', or 'ugly'. You can also post images in comments.
This is hard to markup, seeing as it has code in it already, they counter each other out.
- Hubski markup Text surrounded by asterisks () is italicized, if the character after the first asterisk isn't whitespace. Text surrounded by plus signs () is bolded, if the character after the first plus sign isn't whitespace. Text surrounded by vertical bars (hold shift and the button beneath backspace for verticle bars.) is quoted, if the character after the first bar isn't whitespace. A user's name surrounded by at signs (@) links to their hub, and the user is notified that you mentioned them. A word surrounded by hash signs (#) becomes a tag and links to posts with that tag. Blank lines separate paragraphs. Text after a blank line that is indented by two or more spaces is reproduced verbatim in a different font. URLs become links. Text can link to URLs by using the following format: linked text Image URLs (.png, .tif, and .jpg) will embed automatically.
