Hi, I received the following message in a comment left yesterday on my Hub about dog diapers (on PetHelpful site)
I don't know if this article is useful thanks to the pop up that couldn't be removed covering half my screen asking me "How good is this article?" - counter-productive to say the least
Could someone on the team, investigate this issue please?
@Alison, this makes two developments that are new to me.
The Dirt Farmer posted in a forum about how could NOT
leave Fan Mail section. Now this. Makes me wonder
about the security of HP.
Thank you Kenneth, I must say I'm a little disappointed not to get a reply from one of the tech support team as yet.
This is the survey we use to determine reader satisfaction metrics on articles. It shows up very infrequently, but we do rely on that information for many things on the back end of HubPages, so it is unlikely to be something we will change.
But I think the point my reader was making is that the pop up was malfunctioning. If it obscured half the screen and she could not read my article, her dissatisfaction is not down to my writing but the fact that she could not read it!
This question usually pops up in a small box that can be easily closed if the reader does not wish to rate the article. If that is the case, we have had no other reports of issues, so we'd need more information about the reader's browser and version, operating system, etc, in order to track down the issue.
The other possibility is that this was a popup unrelated to HubPages caused by malware on the commenter's computer.
Unfortunately, as this was a guest user, not a HubPages member, I cannot contact her to find out this additional information. I was just concerned that if there was a malfunction of the pop up, the reader might negatively rate the article due to frustration at not being able to read it properly. Thank you for your responses Christy.
Could you let me know what Hub the comment is on and I'll take a look? It's ok to post a link here directly, since I'm requesting that information.
The article my reader commented on is https://pethelpful.com/dogs/Things-to-C … og-Diapers The comment is not 'live' on the article as I haven't approved it, but I expect you can access it? Thank you.
I had received a comment a few days ago on one of my hubs from a reader with the same feedback - the popup is malfunctioning.
I had a similar comment. I thought it was spam but perhaps it wasn't. They found it blocked too much of the article.

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

I am NOT 100% sure where to post this before anybody jumps on me! I personally would like to see the comments section of a hub precede the ads and the related hubs. It feels like our readers come in to read the information on our hub and then are tantalized by the ads and encouraged by the related...

The emails that I have had from readers would have been a useful addition to the comments section of a page. But are annoying simply as emails.Is it possible to discourage 'contact the author' misuse? Maybe place the link at the bottom. Say 'please use comment section for page-related questions' or...

I have been getting one or two questions every day in my email through the new "contact the author" feature. The questions have been very important; almost always they are questions/details that can help other readers.Since these readers are sending emails instead of leaving the...

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment. Instead, I have to go to my main Comments page and find the now approved comment...

Almost everyday, I read through hubs that catch my eye and the comments below. I've noticed that there are many comments that tend to be pretty identical to each other such as "Great hub!" or "Thanks for sharing!" My suggestion is to add a "ditto" button (or something...
