Profile Feature Suggestion

    I would love to have a checkbox when editing our profiles that would allow us to suppress from public view the list of hubbers following us, in the same way we can suppress our accolades.

      Why do you need that?

      I don't need that!

      I see no reason for HP to waste time on this!

      (Just teasing you because of the other thread we were just in.  I wouldn't use it, but there is nothing wrong with the idea).

    Funnily enough, even though I am suggesting it, I sometimes think I would use it and sometimes don't.  I just think it would be a good option to have.

      Opps, I forgot:

      There are many more important features they should be working on!

        Bwahahaha!!  lol  lol  lol

        I'm sure someone will come along and ask why anyone would want this feature.  Mainly it's because I sometimes think that it's not really anyone's business who follows another Hubber, and the one being followed should have the option to allow the list to show or not.

      I'm with you there about that ambivalence, and so I think I don't have a good sense of the reason that number might be important. Everybody's been told to want an "A", and to strive for LOTS of fans/followers (read "popularity"), but what value do those numbers have to making this site succeed?

        And actually, it's not so much the number that I'm talking about (although that is a good idea too) but the actual list of names.  I imagine it's only the newer Hubbers and visitors who even check those out, but I think people do sometimes form an opinion about someone else based on the Hubbers who follow them.  I would rather the opinion come from the actual writing and posts.

          And again, apropos almost every suggestion ever made, if HP would just design an API to give us access to the raw information that relates to us and our hubs, we could get whatever we wanted easily whenever we wanted.

          Yes, I know most of you can't write code. But a lot of us can, and if we had an API to work against, we could write code that the rest of you could use.

          And we would.

            I can't help but think of your suggestion in terms of technical support, and wonder, if implemeted, would HP recruit a new cadre of "elites" to do the trouble shooting for those who wound up in trouble trying to use the user-written code? Or would this be more like downloading apps for an iPhone? (My practical technical understanding goes only so far!)

              Why would HP have to support stuff other people write?

              Do they have to support Edweirdo's filter?  No.  They wouldn't need to.

                Though of course features like this do need HP to do it.

                I'm thinking of the various lists and counts people ask for. Give us an API and we can do all that easily.

        I've often wondered this myself, although I love having fans/followers (fans smile ), and love to fan/follow (fan smile ).

    Maybe Edweirdo could get to it.

    I find the more stuff I turn off and don't pay attention to here, the happier I am. And I agree that who follows me or how many hubs I have is really no one's business but mine and HPs.

    It's not just the newer hubbers who oggle all of this stuff. I'm always amazed at the time people here spend minding other peoples' business.

    I'm undecided.

    Oh, us Hubbers now have a saying similar to "let Mikie try it!"

    "maybe Edwierdo can do it!"

    Way too much FUN here!  Thank you!
