When I first started my hub I did some comments on other hubs from other authors.
It is fun to read other stuff and get recipes, hear funny stories, etc. and participate in the conversation.
These first comments appeared instantly. Now when I comment they say they are unapproved. Not all are getting approved and I am a little discouraged since I feel like I am not getting to participate.
What am I doing wrong?
*You* aren't doing anything "wrong"! The author of the hub has chosen to not let a comment appear until he/she has approved it. If yours aren't getting approved, it's probably because the author has logged off and hasn't seen it yet.
The comment capsule has some variables depending on what the Hub author prefers. Comments can be automatically shown, or they can be set so that they need approval from the Hub owner first.
If a comment needs approval when it's first submitted, that's nothing special, it's just the preference of that Hub author. But if your comments are being declined, you're going to have to think about what you are saying.
Something has to be wrong though. I went back to a few of the pages to follow the conversation and my comment is not there. But comments that were posted after mine are on the page.
I know my comment was submitted, I got the working symbol then the message saying thanks for participating.
As harsh as this may sound maybe the people may not like your comments or feel they don't add anything? The writers of the hub are completely within their rights to unapprove your comments if this is the case. Also for the record, your last message posted on this hub has been posted.
I did a test comment on a page of a friend who also does hubs. I know for certain her pages are not set to moderate comments and my comment still did not show up on hub. In my hubtivity it says I have a unapproved comment. I will have to ask her how it shows up on her end, but I do know she does not moderate comments.
Is anyone else experiencing this?

I recently read a hub about ouija boards. I would have liked to comment on the hub only it seemed I couldn't because I wasn't a fan of the author. I don't intend to become a fan - not being exceptionally...

I posted a comment on another Hubber's hub 2 days ago, and just now, when I checked my Hubtivity, right at the top was the notification I had posted a comment on that hub 71 minutes ago. I knew I hadn't, so went back to...

I hope Robin will come by and comment on this one. I have been going through all of my old comments and deleting any that don't add anything to the conversation, but some of my hubs have a ton of very useful and...
