What does it mean when your comment does not post immediately on a hub but you can see that others do? Is it related to the "accept or deny" buttons in the comment section on our page? Seems there's another level of regulation I'm missing because it doesn't happen every time. Some comments I posted never made it to the hubs. Glitch or moderation of comments?
Hi Jan, there are global settings for comments. You find these filters on your Account page. Look to the lefthand bar. Choose 'comments' and then choose 'Global Settings' which provides the different options for moderating comments to your own pages. Hope that helps.
Thanks, snakeslane. I checked it out; I see that different options can be set and saved per hub. Still confusing though because I've never set mine but still have to approve or deny some comments, and other times not. Also, guests (who are my friends outside of hp) are able to leave comments without approval. I think it has to do with when I'm signed in or not. Anyway, thanks.
Users have the option to review comments before allowing them to be posted.
So they must approve or deny any posted comment.
This means that they can deny the comment or not actively approve it and it will not show on the Hub in question.
You should be able to see your comment on the writers hub even before it is approved.
Ya, the approve deny buttons are a separate item when the hub is 'open' to comments. funny...but this leaves control in your hands if somone leaves spam or 'other' unwanted comment. Meanwhile the comment would still be visible (in the 'open' mode) until it is officially denied. Approved, at this point appears to be a formality. (I think). Some people may re-set these options if they are going to be away from computer for awhile. Your comment may be in that mode when you don't see it. Worst case scenerio would be 'denied' for whatever reason, could be done accidentally too, clicking the wrong button?

Do you accept or deny comments that leave a link to someone's website?I don't mind people leaving a link to one of their hubs but I don't know about people leaving a link to their own website.

Why do comments without any offense get moderated and then deleted?I am facing this problem for last two comments I punched in. First they went under moderation and then got deleted. Is this is a ban from commenting.

have you experience this, an unverified person, meaning not a member of hubpages visited your hub and criticize your hub and photos... how are you going to react? I clicked the deny option coz it does not look good to me. Do you think I will need to adjust because being here in hubpages I am prone...

I am curious how other hubers deal with comments made by others on their hubs. I don't want to censor people or delete comments I disagree with, but at the same time I'd like to promote healthy discussion on my guides and not spread poor information around.I wrote a guide on how to set up IRC...

What Would Happen if you didn't Approve a comment?Under new comments there is 2 buttons... APPROVE and SPAMBut what happens if you press neither? If nothing, then is the approve button really neccasary? or should it just be a default until you hit Spam?
