When I joined, I started following one hubber, tonight I have found others I would like to follow. Originally I clicked "follow ----" and that was it. Tonight I have been asked for a verification code, is this right? I am sure this didn't happen the first time I did it.Thanks.
Seems so. Don't panic, just copy the code, hit enter and you'll be fine. Welcome to Hubpages too
Sometimes it happens. It's OK. Go ahead !
I like your name it's very Latin.
Welcome to HubPages! Feel free to fan whomever you choose. That code you speak of is a new addition HubPages has added. I have too run across this fanning others.
I hope you enjoy your time here.
Thank you all! Shall go away now and follow follow follow!!!
I would suggest using the Hub Hop button too found under your 'My Account' tab. Welcome to HubPages!
@ Myownworld. Why does following people affect you hubscore negatively? I would think it would be a good thing, as you participate in the community?
It's only bad if you 'spam follow' which is when you fan hundreds of people simply to get people fanning you back.
You will often notice these people as having less than 10 hubs, no meaningful forum posts, and over 100 followers, i think they feed off each other!
If only they understood the tactic doesn't work.
I don't know, but maybe its to discourage people from following hundreds just to get followed back. If they don't encourage it then I guess it gets people to follow others because they are genuinely interested. That's the only thing I can think of anyway- but I'm no expert!

Where is the thread to introduce yourself to the HP community? I heard a lot of good things about the people here. I think saying "Hola" would be a good way to get started here.
