I usually always hit the thumbs up button on hubs I like and mark them as funny or whatever. I've noticed people tell the writer they've done this in their comments. I never do, but just noticed someone said you were suppose to tell. Is this true and why?
I'm sure it's not everyone's intention, but when someone goes out of their way to point out that they've hit thumbs up it suggests to me that they want the hubber to reciprocate. I don't play that game. Just hitting thumbs up helps the score of that hub, there is no reason to tell the person who wrote it, IMHO.
I often vote-- but don't usually say I did, in the comment.
On the other hand , when someone does mention voting up, etc-- it reminds me to do the same wherever I think it is appropriate.
I use the email notifications and read Hubs from there. I only use the thumbs up and awesome, useful, etc., buttons if I agree with the comments. I find it annoying when I got to sign in to leave a comment lazy? maybe to some but I do have other obligations and people to tend to along with a life offline
For some reason, I almost never think to vote up or down, choose funny, useful, interesting, etc. I've just never gotten in the habit of it, and truthfully I forget the option is even there. Even though it is there in black and white, for whatever reason my brain never notices that part of the hub layout. On the rare occasion that I do vote, I will sometimes make mention of it in the comments. It is by no means a hint for the author to reciprocate. It's just me letting them know what I thought about the article.
Thanks to all of you for your replies. I feel like Casimiro does and don't feel it necessary to tell them I did it. I just wasn't sure, after reading that comment, that it wasn't in the "rules" somewhere that you had to tell. I'll just continue to be "anonymous" about it!
Thanks again for all the quick replies!
I never used to, but mostly I do now hen I remember. My reason is so the author knows his/ her work is appreciated ( that is if it is of course).

I recently wrote a hub on this and have gotten some good responses from it. I was wondering, does anyone have any sort of method that they use for writing comments for hubs? Do you just write comments on hubs that you like? Do you comment on all the hubs that you read? Do you also give a...

Pretty often when I leave a comment with a hub, I forget to give it thumbs up. It’s just goes naturally – I see something interesting, type something in response, hit the button, and move on. And even if I wanted to give thumbs up to the hub, I do forget it.So I thought yesterday after another...

Thumbs up, or thumbs down, does it really mean anything, when someone is rating your hub, and only does it in a negative way, it only means that the person haven´t understand a word of it, don´t let that get under your skin. My dad always said " son, it doesn´t matter what other people say,...
