Yes indeedy - I was not sure what it was for at first, and had to go back and remove my comment from it (how inattentive of me! lol) Some where other than where it is would be very good, though I imagine we will get used to it eventually!
I actually received two questions from people at my email address one day. Then I went to my hubs and saw the module there when I wasn't signed in. When I was signed in, I didn't see it--it vanished.
It's very inviting - but I kind of wish the question would go to Comments instead of email - if I am correct in that the two questions I got in a row were from those modules. Perhaps they just tried to contact me through the regular contact link. But I get questions very sporadically, so it's doubtful. No questions since then, though. And I haven't seen the module since then.
Yup, I just noticed it this weekend. Confused me right up.
I thought, when I first saw it, that somebody who is not familiar would think that a question put into that box would go directly to the author of the hub. People will def use it instead of the comment capsule, not realizing they are two different things.
Maybe there could be a real quick explanation with the capsule that explains what it is? For non-hubbers or off-site traffic.
I thought about doing the same! Just saw it this morning in someone else's hub this morning and came here looking for some announcement.
I did assume it was a new capsule option and that the question would go to the author of the hub, especially given how it's located. If that's not the case, then something needs to change because that will confuse too many people...
I noticed it over the weekend and I also think it is in the wrong place. I also think for people unfamiliar with hubpages may use it thinking there question will go to the author and for those of us familiar with the site may place a comment in there by mistake, as I nearly did!
I noticed the question box several days ago on others' hubs before mine. I assumed it was to ask the author a question. I knew it was not a capsule option however when I saw it on mine and knew I didn't select it.
So am I understanding this is for the HP question bank and does not go to the hub author?
I've seen it at the bottom of some hubs and at the moment I'm seeing it under my profile pic in the right hand column -- but I'm not really clear on what it is?? I thought it was a very clever Adsense ad the first time I saw it!
I'd seen it on someone else's hub yesterday and thought it was a new capsule to add. Then I replied to a comment on my own hub and there was one there too! I guess they come standard on all models now!
I have been getting one or two questions every day in my email through the new "contact the author" feature. The questions have been very important; almost always they are questions/details that can help other...
What are the potentially cons of not using a comment box?I'm tired of answering the same questions over and over again. I'm tired of getting rude comments. I'm tired of dealing with it basically. I want to help people,...
I'd like to stop future comments on some individual Hubs. If I delete the comment box in the editing mode, will it also delete all existing comments?Part 2 of that question: If I couldn't do it that...
That's my question. I refresh my Hub "In the Daze" every quarter or so. The old comments from the previous hub are still there. How do I delete them? Sorry to be so dense. Could you help me with this?THNXMarsha
