    Is it possible for Hubtivity to show who gave a hub a thumbs up.  This question came up in my hub "Why I Don't Always Comment, Even When I Loved Your Hub". 

    JamaGenee made the comment, and I agree 100%, that it would be very beneficial to hubbers to see this.  People don't always leave comments due to many reasons, but almost everyone said that they will give a "thumbs up" to a hub they liked.

    So, how about it?  Is there a way??  I think it would make us very happy!  big_smile

    I like it being anonymous. Too many hard feelings would be caused if you know who gave thumbs up or didn't.

      I think you are right, we don't need to know who. Might be nice to know how many ups or downs, but nah, maybe even that would be TMI.

    Maybe we could just see the "thumbs ups", not the downs?  I agree, (and I had not thought of it) I really would not like to see who is giving who a "thumbs down".

    I think there should be a visible rating system that appears after maybe ten people review, I see one in most websites, a rate this article type of thing

    Hmm. If that kind of information isn't anonymous/confidential, then I'm not sure that the ups or downs would be genuine.  Part of them would, but in general....  I don't care much one way or the other, but I can see how making the info public would be detrimental for genuine feedback.

      Absolutely.  Just like joining fan clubs, it would become another feature spammers abuse to try to get attention to their own profiles/hubs.

    It seems it is not as good of an idea as I thought.  Oh well, nothing ventured and all that...

    Hub authors used to be able to see how many thumbs up and down a hub had earned and then the authors became so obsessed about it, they took those stats away.

    I doubt they will bring them back.

    I agree, Teresa!

    relache,  I didn't know this, thanks for the info!  I can see how it would pose a problem.

    I think it is best not to know thumbs up or down because we have too many statistics to keep track of at the moment.  If you are interested in who is visiting your hub, go to Google Analytics and this will give you an idea of the keywords, websites, and search engines referring people to your hub.  Analytics will also detail the bounce rate and the length of time people spent on a particular hub.

    I don't need to know who, but I would like to know the number.  Say, when I click on a hub of mine, under the view stats sort of thing, 5 thumbs up and 4 thumbs down, that sort of thing.  I think it would give me a slightly better idea of how well my hubs are received.  I don't always have time to leave comments, but I will give a hub a thumbs up if I like it.  Sometimes I don't have anything useful to say, other than "Great Hub!!", so I just give it a thumbs up.

      That's exactly what they used to show, and then a *lot* of authors got really bent about it and, as I said, they took those stats away.

      Suffice to say, Paul Deeds has reported the hubs that get the most thumbs down are the Hubs full of pictures of actresses from India.

        I can't find the post where I said this, but I'm confident that I would have grouped all photo gallery hubs together and not singled out those from one country.

        As is often said, you can say anything you want with statistics.  In this particular case, it all depends on how you decide to slice the data.

        On a per view basis, hubs about books & writing actually get the most thumbs down, followed closely by politics, comedy, and religion.

        On a per hub basis, photo galleries, politics, and comedy are the worst.

        If you look at the ratio of thumbs up to down, photo galleries, video games, watches, and business & jobs are at the bottom of the pile.

      Lots of forums have + rep/- rep button..usually oenmust comment real quick on "why" it is a neg.. i think it is a good feature

      if we dont know the running tally we cant use it to possibly use to improve and edit our works..and as pointed out above, the more controversial topics like religion and politics will always have zealots that disagree and attack by using whatever means at their disposal

      if its not transparent it shouldnt even be bothered with and included.

      although i dont think it should be necessary to know who left the neg/pos thumb as that is possible via comment or fan mail for those who wish to be acknowledged and showing negs would lead to reciprocal negging
