I know that I have to make sure the "follow" box is checked in order to get notified when a hubber I follow posts a new hub, someone answers a question, etc. Under my account, I've found where I can set which of those items get sent to my email account so I know something has been added and when I check my email I can see what's going on without having to come to Hubpages. I also see how activity of something I'm following shows up under the "notifications" section at the top of the page (in the black banner). What I'd like to know is what should I choose in the drop down menus for my email settings in order to have the notifications appear in the "notifications" section, but not send me emails?
Things will only appear in notifications after you have dealt with them, you don't actually get new notices there... Which is why so many of us utterly ignore that feature and consider it extremely unhelpful.
For example, comments only show up in notifications after you have approved them. You will not see new, unapproved comments that require your attention listed.
If you don't want emails about the things you are following, just change the dropdown back to never on the email option. You don't have anywhere to choose what shows up in the notifications tab. It's usually the hubs and questions you follow getting comments. You can also see all of your notifications under my account-following-your notifications and there will often be a page of 'hubtivity' when you first sign in of things hubbers you follow or visit often are doing.

Is there anything in the emails settings or the comments settings in our accounts that will send us an email when we get a comment on a hub?

Before reporting a problem I wanted to know if anyone else is having trouble with the comment notification. I usually receive an e-mail when I get a comment. I never changed my e-mail settings but for the past 24 hours...

It seems that some people stop reading comments left at a hub after the hub author has responded to whatever comment they've left. This is only a guess because I've read some people's comments (other than the author's...

We are currently taking a high level look at our notification system: under what circumstances we send a notification to users, how the notifications are sent (e.g. via email or the iPhone app), how users can...
