    I don't seem to be able to leave comments on anybody's hubs this evening...

    Is anybody else having the same problem?

              I think everybody is aware of the situation now... there were some problems about hub-views getting updated about a week ago and that took more than 48 hours to resolve... Just have to be patient.

              If you really do have lots of comments to post on peoples' hubs why don't you set up a new forum thread about the comments you want to post and who you want to post them to --- that way, when the issue does get resolved you just have to go over to the forum and copy and paste onto their hubs and hopefully you will save your computer from spontaneously combusting in the process.. big_smile

        That's what I did last night, was just shut down.  However, Mary, one is able to comment from here on a hub that is in the feed and not via email.  So, the hub you shared of mine had gotten comments and I figured out that I could comment via the feed here.  So, I appreciate the share.  Had to scroll back through the feed to the other hubs too that had received comments, and I was able to comment through here on those as well, so that is good.

I am new at this, and still stumbling along.  I have written 8 hubs...and only received one comment and that was on my very first one.  I was wondering why my hubs weren't generating any  comments.  I was hoping to learn from the input of other hubbers and anyone who read any of them.  Well...good luck to all...feel free to stop by..drop a line..follow me..I'll do the same.  Thanks and have a great day.

      Faith Reaper made a comment : ---

      #Go to Google and type in Hubpages.com and sign in through that in lieu of your email, and the feed will come up, and one is able to comment in that manner, so on new hubs being published, they will show up on the feed, and one can go there to comment if they so wish to do so.  Plus, if someone has commented on one of your hubs prior to the problem, and you had not had a chance to comment back on your own hub, you can if you just go to the feed and keep scrolling until you come to your hub where it had been commented on.  Also, if someone shares your hub, it will show up again in the feed, where comments can be made.#
      This seems to work! :-)
