I was notified about a comment by the auto generated e-mail, which does not exist on my hub. What happened? This is normally a regular commenter.
The HubPages user Jackie Lynnley left a comment on your Hub Life at Boomer Lake with Deb, Monday September 8, 2014.
To read and respond to this comment, follow the link below:
Don’t forget to moderate! Currently on this Hub, unmoderated comments are set to not be displayed. This means that this comment will not appear to others unless you approve it.
Did you check under your account for her comment as you must approve all of your comments being you have them set to not automatically approve them ... which I know you know. A couple of times, HP thought couple of long-time hubbers' comments were spam, when they were not for some reason, and so I just went ahead and said okay to approve the comment. This will happen when a hubber is trying to catch up on commenting and makes a ton of comments in a short period of time, and so HP may think of them as spammers. That is strange though that you do not see a comment to approve? Hope someone knows the answers.
That's a good point.
Always check for comments filed as spam. This is how you do that:
Go to your Accounts page and choose "Comments" from the top menu bar. Choose "Spam" from the pull-down menu under "Filter."
She isn't in there, Faith Reaper, even now. Found lots of comments under spam though, some of them years old.
That's why it's good to check the spam file once a week!
We still haven't solved the poser about Jackie's missing comment. I meant any other suggestions for that.
Well, I don't think the notification comes through for comments that go into the spam box, so that's probably not where the missing comment is.
It's hard to tell since so many of that Hubber's Hubs have the same title (with different dates attached).
She could go to the commenter's activity page and try to find the comment that way.
Another option is to go on HubPages and right click comments for a new tab to see whether there are any comments which have not shown up yet.
That lost comment has never happened before. It has also been a number of hours since the auto-generated message was posted. Normally, it will show that it was deleted, which I was not privy to, at least not yet. Can you retrieve it via the number? I mentioned it to Jackie Lynnley on one of her hubs, so perhaps I will have more information for you later.
Located the missing comment and sent you an email from the team inbox, @aviannovice.
Thanks for all your help, @Faith Reaper, @The Examiner-1, and @Writer Fox.

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?

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment. Instead, I have to go to my main Comments page and find the now approved comment...

I just went under my account page and clicked on Comments, and much to my surprise and delight there were pages of comments! However, after a closer look, they are all comment made by me on others' hubs from the past 19 hours to well over 13 months ago! And ... to boot, I have the...

My Notification tells me that my Hub has two "Unapproved Comments".Where are they? I have looked carefully through them - twice - and cannot see any that say unapproved.
