I've been on a kick lately of posting my songs/poetry for the community to see, and tonight I posted one of my more angry poems..
and got my very first thumbs down. No comment left, just a hit and run. While it made me a little sad, having had a perfect track record so far (48 thumbs up so far!) I realize that it was bound to happen someday.
Here's to hoping that the next time I get a thumbs down it comes with constructive criticism and isn't just a hit and run.
I hope everyone out there in the Hubpages community is having a lively and productive night!
I've got 52 up and 17 down.
Don't worry about it.
Some of my best performing (and in my opinion my best quality) hubs have attracted a thumbs down.
Either it's random (more than one person who for some reason or another found something wrong or incorrect on the hub) or its one person jealous of my awesome talent
Like I said, don't worry about it. Hopefully the Thumbs Down Bandit has their fill of satisfaction. If my content didn't make them happy hopefully they derived enough pleasure from the negative action to make them feel worthwhile.
My first two rates ever were hit and run thumbs down - and on the hub of mine that got featured in the newsletter. I really would rather get some constructive criticism, and the lack of comments makes me suspicious that its just other users trying to downrate me.
Other than that, I have had no more thumbs down. However, no positive comments have been made either, so I really don't have any feedback. It kinda sucks but I guess I'll have to wait a little while.
And a question, is HP an appropriate place to publish stories and poems? Because I'd love to be able to put them somewhere with traffic and that will earn me 'ongoing royalties' as the front page says =]

My stats is no longer showing the number of thumbs up or thumbs down I am getting on any hubs, or even just the totals. The columns are just gone. Am I having a problem, or is this stat something we all can't see...

I think hubbers should be able to flag spam on the forums. I'm not sure if there is an option to do this already but I think it would be good. Even though there is not too much spam, keeping HP forums spam free 99% with...

Someone came through my hubs this afternoon and hit several with thumbs down for no reason..I mean they weren't even controversial. BLAH.

Is there any way to tell if a particular hub has received any thumbs up or thumbs down, and if so, how many? I've been here long enough, I should know these things. But I don't.

So, I answered the question on why girls crave marriage. I said not all girls crave marriage and was given a down vote. Pardon me for stating a fact

I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself (...
