      Hi Jonathan,

      If you have found typos in a Hub, you can leave a comment on that Hub politely pointing out the error. You can also send the user a private email pointing out any typos you've found by going to the Fan Mail section of her profile.

        Thank you. I'll check and see if they have a FanMail link.

      There's a typo in the new HP blog post- Why don't you report that one instead. I hate it when someone uses  "chose" instead of "choose" !

        Hi gallery,

        If you're referring to this sentence: "We recently ran a survey asking the 16% of Hubbers who opted out about why they chose not to participate in HubPro, our free editing service," the term "chose" is in the past tense.

          I think Gallery means this one:

          "The survey asked Hubbers to chose the following statements that addressed their concerns ..."

    Why would you report typos? It's not like it's a sin or something. You could go to hobhopper though to rate hubs based on that criteria.

      I am just trying to help another person's Hub article look more professional. Some of the typos change the meaning of the sentence. (^:

        Oh okay. The word "report" seemed to be have caused a misunderstanding. For the answer, it's to politely leave a comment or a fan-mail. big_smile

    When a troll starts a forum thread, please people, just don't reply. This way it makes it easier for the moderators to remove it.

        I don't think he's a troll, because he doesn't have the right kind of profile pic for a troll. It should be a picture of the 1966 TV version of Batman or something.

    Why do you assume it's a troll?  Maybe he's just a reader who thought an author should made aware of a typo, but couldn't find anywhere to communicate (hub with closed comments section perhaps) and created an account to make a forum post.

    To answer the OP's question, the best you can do is leave a comment.  The author can then fix the typo and delete the comment.  The report/flag button at the top of the article is only for reporting more serious issues, like spam or inappropriate subject matter.

    Christy: This is a troll!  Someone who does not have one hub hitting the forums with this kind of crap to get some type of argument going on.

      Christy Kirwanposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Hi Linda,

      It's possible that this person created an account because he just wanted to be helpful by pointing out an error he discovered in a Hub. Sadly, some new Hubbers are indeed here just to troll, but I like to give people the benefit of the doubt (until they actually engage in harassment or petty bickering, of course!).

      Thanks for looking out for the best interests of the community, though! smile

    I don't understand why HP allows this.   Most of these people do this, with  this crap, and spam galore. We had one this morning, with another account, but name spelled just with one letter taken out of last name, and manages to do this activity over and over without ever creating one hub.

    HP never deletes forums, only comments, initial post, etc. I wonder what Google thinks of this.

      Trolls have some good qualities. They are always good at shaking things up when a forum gets tired, lazy and predictable. The only problem is when they single ppl out or become nasty, but even then they can be somewhat entertaining. But I am quite sure I am in the minority.

      1. Cardisa profile image90
        Cardisaposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        Are you suggesting you are a troll? big_smile big_smile

        I often "troll" the forums, so I guess I'm one too.

        1. Sed-me profile image82
          Sed-meposted 3 years agoin reply to this

          I think of a troll as someone who is faking their identity for dubious reasons, or someone who is purposefully trying to cause contention.

          I don't fit either of those descriptions, but I can say, I have a very hard time walking away from a thread where someone, not defending themselves, is getting picked on. I also like to laugh and joke with ppl, which I think is a good connection to have in the midst of any thread. Although I would draw the line at a, "My Grandmother just died" kind of thread. Joking aside, this is where the personality issues come into play. Some ppl might feel that is an invasion to not "match tone", but I always feel it is opening the thread up to other personalities that might have wanted to take part, but felt intimidated. Inclusion, I think, is very important in community. It takes all kinds!!! We all belong here and we are all adults.

          Ok... so you were just joking and I went off on a tangent... sorry. I just had to get that off my chest. smile

          1. Cardisa profile image90
            Cardisaposted 3 years agoin reply to this

            Okay I was joking...lol.

            My use of "troll" was in this context: Hunting for trolls. Trollers hang around under bridges with troll guns at night (since trolls turn to stone in daylight), in the hope of bagging a troll head as a trophy. As a VERY endangered (i.e. nonexistent) species, trolls are protected by law, and trolling is therefore illegal. "The police arrested two hobbits yesterday on charges of trolling". The joke was lost I guess...lol

      Hi there,

      Not a troll am I. (^:

      I did search the forums for the word "typo" and didn't find anything so just asked about it. Thankfully I found out how to send FanMail and sent the writer a note to improve their Hub. (^:

        Hi Jonathan,

        Welcome to the forums and to HP. Some folks are a bit suspicious of folks who haven't yet published hubs, so please don't take it personally.

        I for one, enjoy someone letting me know that I've made a typo. I work hard to weed them out, but every once in a while one slips by.

        Looking forward to see what hubs you create.

      Thank you for that link! It almost works for what I wanted, but I did actually find out how to send a Hub writer a FanMail with the typos included with my complements as to their article they wrote. (I'm new here and FanMail link was hard to spot for some reason for me.) cheers, Jonathan Melusky

        1. Cardisa profile image90
          Cardisaposted 3 years agoin reply to this

          Maybe he meant "complements". If he was sending corrections then maybe he sent additional information to make the hub better, then the word complement would have been used in the right context.

          1. Richard-H profile image84

            Highly unlikely in the context of the sentence.

            The Examiner-1posted 3 years agoin reply to this

            He probably mentioned the typos while complementing the quality of the Hub.

    Really? We started this thread by bashing the OP as a potential troll. Now we're criticizing grammar and typos?

    Would it be too much to ask that folks give the OP a break despite potential grammar/spelling challenges?

    Based on the threads about stalking and harassment, this is exactly one I'd flag. Let up already.

    1. Cardisa profile image90
      Cardisaposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      The human nature. Someone joins the site and starts a forum within minutes, just to report typos in a hub. It's human nature to scrutinize his use of grammar, based on the fact that he obviously appeared to be an expert.

      I decided the minute I realize he was not a troll, that I would refrain from any kind of judgement when it came to people I don't really know.....that includes everyone but my immediate family.

      1. Lionrhod profile image78
