I was looking at the new layout on a hub and it made me think that the
'go to last comment' does not really show up as much as it might.
I sometimes get comments from people who are not regular HubPage visitors and they might not notice this wording or know where to leave a comment,now.
Would it be possible for the words to be a bit bolder or larger. To have words added that say something like - and to leave your own comment or to leave a comment here, would encourage comments.
Not easy to come up with the right words for it but I guess you will know what I mean. Thank you.
2uesday, thanks for the suggestion. In our user testing on the new Hub design, we never encountered folks have problems with finding where to leave comments. Plus, Comments and how to leave them is a pretty standard web convention with which users are accustomed.
Making the link more prominent does present problems as the more things you ask a user to click, the less likely they are to click on anything. So you want to be very careful with how that link compete with clicks to ads, related hubs, the follow button, etc. Given that users can find the comment box in our testing without trouble, it's unlikely that we will make the change you suggest. Just being honest.

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 are always the title of the Hub. That way you can discuss it and always edit...

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

Does it bother you that people visit your hubs and don't leave comments?What's more important to you, getting tons of traffic with no comments or getting less traffic with comments?For me, I love to get comments because it lets me know if I have touched someone or given someone a new way of doing...

I've come across a hub, now and then, without a comment section. Is this a choice made by the author? If so, why?

Do you approve comments from guest users that only leave links?A guest user commented on one of my hubs leaving a link to a book about the same subject. They don't actually say anything they just give the link to the book. Since there is no actual comment in the comment would you approve it or...
