All my comments are being "unapproved" when I know for a fact that these hubbers never had set it to "approve before being visible" just a couple of hours back. It happened for the last 4 comments and hence it can't be a coincidence that all have suddenly changed their preference. Is this a problem with just my account or more widespread?
CW..I think there's a problem with your account as your latest comment in my hub..showed..spam or deny .You have been making so many comments in my hubs it has never shown -spam.So I suppose that there is a prob with your account,but then,I had always had to approve of comments in my comment box..anyway,till now yours never showed spam!
I guess if the comments consist of few words it gives that message. But was my comment really small I am not sure. Well yesterday I thought my comment was visible. I guess not having sufficient sleep I am not able to think coherently.
CW..lol..there are no words at all! :)Check it out..maybe you do need sleep...lol!
Now that is too much. I am sure I typed at least 4/5 lines and somehow it seems to have disappeared now. I know I need more sleep but still I would never submit 4 comments without any words
Btw if there are no words you can deny it. I will retype and probably use copy command next time to make sure.
You probably used white text on a white background! WINK!
Your comment appeared in my hub right now, however hubtivity had not registered your post.
Thanks for your remarks.
That's funny white text
But seriously I am aware of the time lag and this issue which I mentioned happened about an hour ago. I guess hub pages swallowed my words and left only blank comments which were appearing as spam and hence weren't approved.
I have noticed when a person comments a lot of short comments, they end up being spammed. Some hubbers don't check foir spammed cxomments and they were probably not even noticed.
You had made a comment on one of my hubs, and yes, it is not showing up.
Sorry about that. The other day I had issues while submitting comments somehow in my comments my words were not going through and it left only blank comments which were appearing as spam and hence weren't approved.
But now things are back to normal. Thankfully
Just now one of my comments was approved and now I am not sure why the others aren't. I guess overnight these folks must have changed their preferences then.
CW, that's a funny thing, it happened to me once but went away all on it's own. The funny thing was, in Hubtivity I could see "unapproved comment" but in the hub I could actually SEE the comment. Like I said, it went away on its own for me.
Oops, CountryWomen, I spoke too soon. You action HAS been spotted by hubtivity.
Could this sort of thing happen if you post comments to 3-4 hubs in quick succession ??
They were fairly long comments and hence it would take some time. I guess I can check my profile history and confirm that it wasn't due to the system considering it as an automated spam when done in quick succession. Everything is working fine now and I will have to clarify to those folks later about blank comments
Now again the problem seems to have resurfaced. I am having tough luck today and will try another fresh browser session later.
Now after repeated tries my comment went through. I guess if nobody else is facing similar issue now then I will have to live with it.
Hi CW - there is a comment from you on my rescued kittens hub which is blank.
When I logged in right now I found two "comments" from you on my latest hub. There was no text at all.
I thought you were at a loss for words! Or experiencing a temporary loss of voice like what happened to Cacofonix on his visit to India.
The buttons "not spam" and "approve/deny" were active. I hit the "not spam" button and the "approve" button in sequence.
All you have to do now is to fill in the blanks! Thanks for your visit anyway.
I am unable to upload my photo for the last 5 months. I dont know why. Are there any special procedure or condition to accept a photo by the HP ?
Someone comments offendingly about my observations which normally speak high about my country and my culture. When I try to answer that in a fitting way, my comments are deleted. I dont want my comments to be here at any cost. But I should be allowed to answer an offending observation or atleast disallow the original offending comments by others.
HP is not the end of the road. But it will be good to be fair.
you left a blank one on my cats hub, did you see my comment higher up?
Glad it's sorted now.
LG- I saw your comment. But lately haven't been keeping up with correspondence. Thanks for pointing out my oversight. I would get back to that hub and share what I feel. You do have a remarkable ability to get into so many details even when you are so active on hub pages(you sure must be a fantastic lawyer)
The only time I have not approved a comment is when it has been a duplicate!
Even I don't deny comments unless they are spam or abusive. But my comments weren't "unapproved" by anybody but since they were going out as blank the system "unapproved". It was a sort of a minor technical glitch and most probably at my end since nobody else felt similarly.

I know comments have been gone for a long time on HubPages and the various topical sites, such as HobbyLark and Owlcation, but I missed the discussion on why they were removed. Doesn't that adversely impact engagement? It's hard to know how my hubs are impacting readers or if they're making any...

A have a small red # 1 by several of my niche site titles on my account page. What do these mean?
by Faith Reaper 6 years ago
I apologize, but it seems a "Best" answer was chosen on my question when I did not choose it. I hope the HP Team can help me or someone can inform me why that happened! I noticed it via my phone and I knew that I did not choose an answer and I was not going to do so any time...

What happened to the reply button on the comment section?I have realized the reply button is becoming available only after you scroll all the way down to the comment box, type your reply and hit the post comment button. Anyone with an explanation to this?

I was looking at the new layout on a hub and it made me think that the 'go to last comment' does not really show up as much as it might. I sometimes get comments from people who are not regular HubPage visitors and they might not notice this wording or know where to leave a comment,now.Would it be...

I had a comment to approve , but when I went to the hub there was no comment to approve.I have copied the comment from a lady in Australia. It starts with "Hello Elsie, don't know how I missed this post. Oh dear, how complex christmas has become. I guess for many children it hard to...
