FIXED: A BUG? Suddenly I'm Moderating Other Hubber's Hubs

    I went to my Global Comment Moderation Page just now to check if I have any new comments. To my surprise I saw a whole lot of them. But then upon closer scrutiny I noticed they are all mine, comments I left in other people's hubs as far back as three years ago.

    EDIT: Additional info: I realize after some thought that what I'm seeing are comments I left that were never approved by the various hubbers and still waiting for moderation.

      Me, too.  I didn't realize you had reported this issue earlier, but I've got the same exact problem.

    I can confirm your bug, Glenn.

      Hey Rae, if you change the filter you can see who has denied your comments and even if any are marked as spam. I have one of each. LOL.

        Looks like they have a fix in place already.  Too bad I missed that extra special fun you found.

        As it was, there was only a single comment I'd ever made which still showed as needing approval.

          I noticed they fixed it already too. I should have saved a list of mine that were not moderated, but I didn't think of doing that at the time. You're lucky that you had only one.

          I guess I've been reading and commenting on a lot of hubs where the respective Hubbers have not been actively moderating their comments. They're receiving comments and they are not even following up with it, leaving those comments unapproved.

          This brings up an interesting point, and possibly a useful feature form HubPages to consider. What I'm proposing is that HubPages should notify Hubbers, either by email or with a warning when they log in, when they have not been keeping up with moderating their comments.

          I think it's a shame that many of us are leaving comments that go unnoticed. It shows that those Hubbers, who are not moderating, really don't care about their own success.  I'm not talking about responding to comments. Many Hubbers are busy, especially if they get a lot of comments, and that is perfectly understandable. I'm just referring to moderating when they have their settings set for moderation.

            At this point and time, I have to wonder if perhaps the unapproved comments are connected to people who have just abandoned their writing here.

            Sort of like how users with really huge numbers of followers have a large percentage actually from people who never even made any Hubs in the first place or who have now been gone for years.

              You are probably right. I wish I had saved that list, because I could have checked on that. But I do know  that there are at least some people who don't pay attention, because every so often one of my old comments gets approved many months after I had left it, when they suddenly notice they have unmoderated comments. Did that ever happen to you?

        I saw one comment a couple days ago that I needed to approve or say it was spam. Never seen that before.

        Edited: To add that it was a newbie to HP, but not new to writing great content.

    While the staff is checking this thread for tech issues, here's another:

    I just edited a hub, and it took three or four clicks on one text capsule for the actual text to appear and allow me to edit it. I finally went in and out of the edit mode and was able to access the text. During the glitch, the capsule's subhead would appear (but not let me edit it) and the text box was blank. All 3-4 times.

    I just put a technical question on about that. Hopefully we will get an answer. I believe that it is a glitch with certain links.

    Now another problem, when I go to comment on someones hub the comment bounces off and takes me to the top of the page.

      Nell, I just left a couple of comments in hubs and did not have that problem. Try refreshing the page first. See if that clears the problem.
