What does the thumbs up & down vote get a Hubber?.. does it ruin/heighten their status or ranking? can somebody just keep clicking on somebodys up/down vote buttons?
The votes are figured in with the algorithm to give the hubpage a score. While it is helpful to have thumbs up votes, there is a lot of other things that go into that score as well as the votes.
That's good because I had a bunch of mad anti-obama people visit one of my hubs the last few days and I can bet they left alot of thumbs downs for me! They sure left some very nasty comments!
Ahhh...such is the price of writing about controversial subjects.......
Algorithms... lol,k ...thanks aidenofthetower I wasn't too sure about them buttons but is nice to know

My stats is no longer showing the number of thumbs up or thumbs down I am getting on any hubs, or even just the totals. The columns are just gone. Am I having a problem, or is this stat something we all can't see anymore?

What happen to the thumbs up vote and awesome, beautiful, interesting, etc.?I am not seeing the vote up or other votes on any hubs? Is there a glitch or is it just my computer? Thank you for answering.

For ages, older site members have stated thumbs up/down on hubs does nothing; it does not even change hubscore. In that case why do we have it? Does it do anything?

So, I answered the question on why girls crave marriage. I said not all girls crave marriage and was given a down vote. Pardon me for stating a fact

I just voted my own hub down because I was trying to use those arrows to scroll with! They look like scrolling arrows, not voting arrows! This is not good.

I have a question about the blue thumbs on Hubs. If I click on the thumbs up, I also can click on the reasons i.e.; interesting, funny, beautifu, awesome, etc. What happens if I read a lens and feel it should be reported for some sort of abuse? Do I give it a thumbs down, and if so, does the writer...
