1. Add "interesting" to the "Was this hub..." area. I find a lot of hubs interesting more than anything else.
2. Make it possible to choose to get an email when someone posts a reply to the comment you left on their hub. For example, a lot of times I comment on a hub and may also leave a question. I get notices when someone leaves a comment on my hubs but not when I leave a comment and the hubber replies to me.
I think these two things would be cool.
Hi the fix,
Thanks for your comments. I'll add one vote for "Interesting" to our list of new terms to consider for feedback.
As far as your second suggestion, we are planning the very change that you have requested. Ari, one of the HubPages engineers, is leading the work on this.
Ari has started a thread on this topic here:
wow, you are too quick Larry. "Interesting" will be a nice addition.
While you're here Larry - is there any possibility of being able to turn off comments at some point without having to delete the capsule or the comments? I have one hub that has nearly 400 comments and they are all the same kind of questions that are already answered in the hub. I want to keep the comments already there but would like the option to close the comments now.
Hi Susana S.,
I agree that the ability to turn off comments would be a great feature. I'll add it to our list of features to consider.
At this time, the best that you can do is make comments require a moderator's approval. That way, the comments will no longer appear unless you approve them.
You change this setting by going into edit mode and then editing your comment module.
Hah! That must be an interesting suggestion list.
"Interesting" is a good suggestion.
I'm glad the comment reply feature is coming. That is one several people requested when Ari was on the forums soliciting feedback on new features. Glad he listened!
As for the "Interesting" category, I think the current categories (Awesome, Beautiful, Useful) pretty much cover "Interesting." At some point it may be too many categories for the reader to consider.
As mentioned in the other thread on the subject of comments, rather than endless comments, Author responses and notifications as suggested would it not be a better idea to have a Hub dialogue button that opens a Discussion forum about the hub.
I think it might popularize more Hubs, and Authors.
Perhaps there could be an added Hub Discussion section in the forums and as a control to keep spammers and self promotion to a minimum, two parties would have to activate the thread, First the Author and then by the commenter / or the commenter requests discussion and then the Author could open a discussion forum

I still think comments should be comments, not discussions, that is the purpose of a forum. Maybe it would be a good idea that every author has a forum automatically made in a widget on there profile page and the topics...

If the hub comments are set to need approval before they are displayed, you can see that as someone who has commented. This would allow you, as a commenter, to easily tell the hub writer in a second comment if...

I was quite stunned a week or more ago when someone made a statement on one of my hubs that she had commented twice and I had snubbed her by not replying. Her comment had been particularly flattering, and probably...

There seem to be many hubbers who have no published hubs and are still allowed to comment on other people's writing. While there are some hubbers who are simply new and asking questions before diving in, it seems that...

I am not a regular hub-maker. I am just commenting on some topics which interests me... mostly political, family, religion. But some of my comments are not taken for unknown reasons. I am not going to gain...
