I chose to opt out, for now, of the EC. However, I went later to make some other changes to my profile (not changing the EC that I already set--I understand that's a 60 days setting) and it won't save any other changes I try to make.
Uh-oh. Sounds like a glitch. Hopefully HP will be along to comment, but likely not until tomorrow.
Same thing has happened to my profile. Can't make any changes or edits. I opted out as well so it looks like the problem is there where it locks our choice for 60 days.
I see what you are talking about and have forwarded this to our engineering team to be addressed.
Thanks for taking the time to report it.
It looks like we should have a fix our relatively soon.
Thanks for your patience!
We just released a fix for this issue.
I tested and was able to edit and save profile changes.
Thanks for everyone's patience!
I wonder if others who went in and chose to opt out are also finding that all changes to their profiles are now locked?
I opted out, but after reading your post I'm afraid to go back to edit anything on my Profile. I'm afraid it will opt me in! Please let us know when this glitch is fixed!
No, it just doesn't save any changes---like if you want to change the hubs in your carousel, it won't save any changes. It definitely won't let you opt back in because it just won't do anything.
It may be a coincidence because I've not opted out (so far) but a change to my profile didn't save.
Inconsistent glitch? I thought I opted out yesterday but must have forgotten to hit save. Just opted out again, (says my last change was August 8th????) and changed a hub on the carousel. Everything saved.
No inconsistencies, LCDWriter. It is an absolute glitch. I just did a test to change a hub on the carousel and it would not save. Oh well.
I'm also experiencing this problem. I also decided to opt out of the Editor's Choice for now and the change saved on my profile. But when I tried to edit my profile again, any more changes I make to it have not been saved at all.
Just tested and I am still unable to edit anything in my profile and have it save. Should I send an email somewhere or will this eventually get flagged by the technical support staff? Thanks.
I disagree. If there is no official response from HP after several hours, in this case well over 24 hours after the problem was reported, I think people are totally justified in bumping the thread concerned.
Repeatedly "bumping" a Hub only results in more email to go through in order to find problems.
It does not result in a quicker response and we mention not to do it in our terms of service.
Nagging admin over the weekend when they are all out of the office has never resulted in a faster response.
Again, I did not know that bumping a thread was problematic or something hubpages advises against. I do now. I also did not "nag" over the weekend but only posted the problem once. I know that they have many things to go through and I was unsure of the official way for this to be noticed since it is an issue that is causing problems with many hubbers. Next time I will wait and hope.
LCDWriter, I was responding to WriteAngled's post, which I quoted, not to something you said.
Wow. I'm just screwing up royally today! Sorry to you too. I don't know what's wrong with me today.
Glad it's fixed now. Thanks for the post, LCDWriter. By the way, what is "bumping" a thread or hub?
"When a member posts in a thread for no reason but to have it go to the top, it is referred to as a bump or bumping. It has been suggested that "bump" is an acronym of "bring up my post"; however, this is almost certainly a backronym and the usage is entirely consistent with the verb "bump" which means "to knock to a new position"."

Looks like Google made another algo change earlier this week. My traffic rose about 25% on my main HP account around this time, so I'm guessing the update was the cause. My traffic is still low by historical standards (down by more than a third from the start of the year), but I...

I noticed recently after I followed someone in error, that I couldn't stop following them. Is this a new feature that when we follow another hubber, it's for ever now? Because this function is not working!

Just made changes to my profile, mainly by changing the hubs featured in my carousel. When I viewed the changes, I noticed that my profile no longer enjoys a backdrop of the scenic New Hampshire waterfalls that it used to. No matter how many times I click on the option, it will not go back to the...

I often change the hubs spotlighted on my profile. This time they wouldn't change. I don't know why. When I choose new hubs and save the changes I'm directed back to the top of the page, but no change is indicated. When I go to my profile to check, no changes have been made.
