I have approved a comment left on one of my hubs, but the box for me to reply has not appeared. This has never happened before. Please help
Hubs that have been placed on the specialty sites are rearranged so that their comment boxes are at the top of the comments section instead of the bottom as we have become accustomed to.
Also, try reloading the page. Only takes a minute and sometimes it helps if a comment box is missing.
If this is not the case and there really is no comment box available I would suggest you write to firstname.lastname@example.org. They're usually pretty good about getting back to you the same day.
@ au fait,
I have met with a bit of aggravation with the
same situation. But you have answered this
A perfect answer, @Au fait! I hope Colleen's problem has been solved by now after following your instructions.
I find it easier to follow Glenn Stok's advice - I always go to My Account, then click on "Comments", and approve and reply from there. It's a lot less confusing!
I don't like HP's comment section at all because one can not reply directly to a person's comment. But when I do reply I use the 'comments' in 'my account' too and put the name of the one I want to reply to first with a # in front, so at least then you know for who the reply was meant to.
@/#Tita, what I do sometimes, is go to the profile page of the
one who left the comment and go into Fan Mail and then hit
the "Send (Name of Hubber) Fan Mail" and send them a brief
thank you for their comments, but I said 'sometimes.' I do not
do this all of the time.

so how do you feel about people who write hubs accept the comments and don't reply to them? I find myself doing that about 80% of the time because I run out of things to reply. also because I am a bit lazy. also because I wonder if you comment how you would know whether I reply or...

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?

When I get a comment on one of my hubs I usually reply, at least with a thanks if I can. I notice some do and others do not reply to comments.I am wondering if there is any reason for not replying apart from being too busy to do so? Is it bad for bandwidth? does it score against your page rank,...

Do you find that leaving comments and replying to them increases your stats, or does it take you away (time wise) from writing hubs?
