    Oh, oh!
    I broke the rules and promoted my hub in a comment!
    What will happen? I am so scared!

    What will happen? Will I get banned? I was just excited because it was my very first hub! Please help me!

    Nothing might happen but just incase it does, be prepared to sign up with another account....

    Anyway, don't attempt it next time, I simply mean: Be on the watch

    I don't know if I have done this or not... don't think I have, but I will definitely pay attention though.

    I don't think it is a problem.  If so, I am also in deep doo-doo, as I sometimes link to my Hubs both here in the Q&A and on others' Hubs.  Furthermore, I have no objection to others linking to theirs from mine, as long as their Hub is somewhat (even loosely) related.

    I think Bat eyes was asking about comments on Hubs.  The page relache noted was about the the FORUMS, not Hubs.  And even that page didn't say anything about one's Hubs at all -- only about links to elsewhere.
