Hi- I'm coming back into the community after being away for two years or so and I have been housecleaning a bit. Just wondering why with the new editing features it is flagging comments for errors? My hubs are fine but I have all theses edits in the comments section? What's the deal?
A while back they ran something called EditBot over all the hubs on the site. The robot icons have a different look depending on whether the bot edits were made in the text of the hub or in the comments, often it's both. The icons are supposed to disappear when you open a hub. They're reversible edits, so just go over the hubs that got botted and uncheck the edits that are incorrect. It can make errors.
They are trying to clean up grammar - something you can't do for your visitor comments yourself. Mostly it is innocuous - hopefully it is helpful.
Thanks was just wondering-no biggie have pared it down to only 5 remaining hubs-so until I start producing again I suppose I won't have to deal with it.
The editbot automatically corrects errors in comments so you don't need to do anything - even if the editbot gets it wrong on a comment or two, chances are that overall it has done the right thing. It's a bit irritating to see the little black bots on your Account page but you learn to ignore them!
If you want to make them go away, just open the Hub, click "show errors" then "hide errors" and they will disappear from the account page.

It is one thing to hit a double letter (or to skip and "e" like I almost did in letter, but if English is your native language, it seems to me that you should make an effort to spell correctly and use standard English in Hubs you publish and in comments you make. I read a comment this...

Is it rude to point out grammar/spelling mistakes on hubs via comments?I've come across numerous hubs that have grammar and spelling errors, some minor and some littered with mistakes. Otherwise, these hubs would be interesting and will written in my opinion. Is it rude to point out these mistakes...

Surely Best should consist of only the best writing. If so, why are these Hubs not all Editors Choice Hubs? Latest should consist only of all recently published Hubs which have passed the QA. Hot should be those Hubs which are currently receiving traffic.The forum and questions...
