I'm on Hubpages, like, all day, everyday (don't judge me, lol). When I read a fantastic hub, I want to scroll down and comment to let the author know how great their hub is... but, I know that voting helps a lot, too. It's so easy to just whizz on by the voting and forget doing it even if you intended to... so, sorry if this has been discussed before, but what about making the voting options more obvious? Or placing them elsewhere? I would get more use out of them if they were put to the left or right of the comments box, or right below it instead of sandwiched between a bunch of other boxes and text... or if they were bigger or brighter so they catch the eye more....
Couldn't agree with you more.
I tend to skip by the options to the comments without realising and then forget to vote.
As you say it may be a good idea to move them next to the comments in bright colours where they would stand out, as you read and write your comment.
Happy new year

If HubPages ever has a focus group of selected hubbers I would love to be a part of it. They could do some regional focus groups (maybe start in Chicago for me) and really get some great input from a hubber's perspective on tweaks. I think HubPages is awesome. I was attracted to it by its clean...

How does one know whether a comment left is spam related or not, other than the obvious?Other than the obvious, when one goes to a hubber's profile page, one can tell if it is solely spam; however, if it is not obvious, how does one know? When HP asks one to decide if a comment left is spam...

When leaving comments on hubs do you always vote up (or down) and click the appropriate buttons?Sometimes I get a bit carried away with my comment and forget to click the buttons, especially when I am hub hopping - i.e. useful, funny, awesome, interesting, etc. I am trying hard now to...

Is there any way we can make the voting and feedback section of a hub easier to see? I am constantly forgetting to utilize this section after I leave a comment because it tends to blend right into the ads and capsules.And, since we are on the subject...can we also change the placement/look of the...
