    I admit ahead of time, what I am about to request may seem sort of nit picky, but it is something that drives me a little nuts.

    When you go to the "activity" section under "my account" every link in the list reads with the word "you" instead of "I" or "my."

    Afterall, if it is "my account" then it should be "topics I follow," "Hubs I follow," "Hubbers I follow," "My Questions," "My Answers," and "Comments I Made,".... NOT "Hubs YOU Follow," "Hubbers YOU Follow," etc.

    Nit Picky, I know, but I wish the hub team would consider changing this!

      Welcome to Hubpages, ktrapp!  Take a piece of tape and stick it on your monitor, then put a "my" over the.......smile

        HaHa - That made me really laugh, but I don't think it's the solution I was hoping for smile

          Actually, it should say "our account" since we share earnings with HP.  smile

    or they could save time and change it to "your account" and "your profile"

      Funny smile and that would work too, but I think I prefer "my" and "I" since it's my stuff. I think HP could spare a few minutes and make this cosmetic change for me.

    For me the 'help' button that is really a well disguised FAQ button needs to be altered and locating the Learning Center button at the top of the page would be good. Even then not everyone new would find them there. I know this may not be a priority with all the other changes and tweaks are taking place.

    True again, Randy! But I still vote for "my" and "I" since I guess we only see our own portion of the earnings under my account.

    I just hate the "you" and "your" because those pronouns are written from the perspective of HubPages not the account owner. Now I'm sounding too serious, like I really care, but I really wish it was changed. smile

    Maybe it is that way unintentionally or  because 'they' own the site and they allow us to have accounts here smile smile
