Fan Mail

    I just left some fan mail for a brand new hubber who has not even started. It would be nice to have an option only when no hubs have been written, to detail we are welcoming the new Hubber onboard.

      You should be able to include a welcome message in the fanmail message.

        Hi Matthew,

        You are absolutely correct. I should have clarified. This Hubber had no hubs so the categories to check off included items assuming I had read some of their hubs but there weren't any hubs as yet.

        The computer knows there are no hubs so if the other categories could be blank until they conribute a hub and offer only a welcome and a message to encourage them to contribute.

        Writing a hub is hard work (if done correctly), as fellow Hubbers we could team together to encourage participation and having this message showcase our welcome, I feel could help the quality.

        A photo of the options is provided below - my suggestion is adding the welcome or allowing only the welcome if no hubs are yet written.

    The other day I discovered (after I had send some fanmail), that the default is set to  'no message'. No wonder I didn't see my messages appearing.

      Good point!

      I didn't realize that option would do that. Why would we include  no message for a writing website? And why would that option be first?

        The no message option allows you to become a follower without leaving a fan mail message.I often do this, because I haven't read enough of that Hubber's hubs to form an opinion. You can go back and add fan mail later.

        You also don't have to click on the categories in a fan mail.  It is optional.  That's part of the reason I may wait after following someone to post a fan mail.

        I like the fan mail features the way they are, because they allow for more flexibility.
