On our individual feeds next to our profile photo we can see if we have new comments to any of our hubs? Would it be possible to also receive notification here of any answers to our posted questions and Fan Mail awaiting approval.
Currently next to the profile there are links for:
- Your Hubs
- Your Profile
It seems like 'Your Hub's and 'Your Profile' could be removed since they are in the menu dropdown immediately above the photo already.
The new list could contain notifications for:
- Fan Mail
Each could have the little circle with a number in it if activity has occurred.
That would be nice to have an easy way to see when you have new fan mail or answers. Great idea!
I get notified when I get answers to questions or answers check the settings for notifications ... I think on your profile
Thanks for the idea. I took a look at my settings and I do receive these notifications through the daily digest email and I could also sift through the notifications that we receive under "notifications." The problem is, the email is once a day and I don't want to enable the instant email and check there to see if someone replied to one of my questions when I'm already on HP. And the "notifications" section can be a little cumbersome to sift through to see if someone responded to anything I've written like a hub or question.
That's why I was thinking, for the sake of simplicity, it would be really nice to have some sort of visual tally of responses like we do already see for comments to our hubs. But I appreciate you pointing that out. I hadn't looked at those email settings in some time so it was a nice refresher of what's available to us. Thanks again.
I agree with you ktrapp - it would be useful to see a number using the same type of format that the comments have.

When I get a notification that someone has posted new fan mail and I click on the link it goes to a list of my fan mail which appears to be in reverse chronological order.The new fan mail isn't even there! I have tried...

I would like to see an indication on the Home Page (I use the standard) if someone leaves fan mail (or joins as a follower), a notification similar to comments left would be nice. You typically do not see this, or at...

There should be a tab for sent messages or sent fan mail. I cannot find this anywhere on the site. Thanks!

Might be a brain fart here, but I have a couple of fans I'd like to leave fan mail for...how do you find that option? TX in advance.

With the recent restrictions placed on links within the new format profile, it seems incongruous (to me) that Hubbers are able to include an active link back to their own profile, within fan mail sent to others.I know...

I've been noticing sometimes I'll leave a Hubber a fan mail and it won't get approved. I know there are different explanations for this, like they haven't been on in awhile or maybe they don't want to approve it or want...
