After two years of being at HubPages I accidentally clicked the thumbs down button, very careless of me. Sorry for that. Is there any way to undo the thumbs down. I tried clicking the thumbs up, it did not work. What do I do??
I don't know Vellur, but hope someone lets you know. I have never given a thumbs down to a hub, even if it isn't written well. Then I will just not comment, but won't give a thumbs down. It would be easy to do it by accident though.
Stop worrying about tit. I know how you feel but one little thumbs down wont hurt anybody...lol I thought there was a way to undo your ratings. Did you try clicking the same button again? It's like, if you like something and want to unlike it, you click the same button.
HubPages has said that the thumbs up/thumbs down feature has a miniscule effect on scores. It's an old feature left over from the early days of HP. It's really so insignificant, it's not worth even trying to undo it.
If you are concerned, drop the HP team an email and ask them to sort it out as it was accidental
Jodah thank you, I understand.
Thank you Cardisa, you made me feel better. I tried clicking the button again, it did not work.
CMHypno that is a great idea.
Try clicking on the thumbs up button, or if you want to offset your accidental thumbs down, log out and go back to the hub anonymously and click the thumbs up button.
I did that once. Since I had not clicked anything else I did what Anna Marie suggested. I closed the Hub, re-entered from the email and started again making sure that I clicked thumbs up.
Having trouble with the clicks one night the thumbs down worked. I was horrified. My husband told me to hit the refresh button and un-click. It seemed to work.
It is so easy to make a mistake, and then we worry. Sometimes I worry after I accidentally misspell a word. Then I tell myself none of these things matter. The thumbs down doesn't matter. I guess we are all trying to do the right thing. Thanks for the post. It helps us, and thanks Marisa for your comment.

What can you do to undo an accidental 'Thumbs Down'?As I was scrolling over and preparing to click on the 'Thumbs Up' button on a hub; I prematurely clicked and hit the Thumbs Down button! I thought, oops, I'll undo it; but it wouldn't let me. I don't want to negatively affect someone's hub. There...

Do you give other hubs a "thumbs down" vote?I've never voted a "thumbs down" on any hub, regardless of errors or the tone and nature of an article. If a hub is filled with errors or it is politically charged and I disagree, I may respond, but I do not vote it down. Am I shirking...

I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself ( written well, lots of information, good layout?)Just wondering because I write...

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?

When do you use the "Thumbs Down" button?I won't use the "Thumbs Down" because I'm not sure I understand under what circumstances it should be applied. If we don't enjoy a hub are we supposed to vote it down? If the hub violates HP in some way then it should be flagged right? Do...

What is the purpose of the "thumbs up" and the thumbs down" at the bottom of each hub?Is it in reference to how the hub is written - as in accuracy of content, grammar, wording etc? Or is it in reference to whether the reader agrees or disagrees with the subject matter presented? I...
