How often do you click on the buttons, 'Funny' 'Awesome' ect?
If I like a Hub, I will generally hit the 'Up' button and one of the choices showing I like the hub, even if I don't comment. It seems a lot of people don't, even if they take the time to comment. I wonder why. It seems like an easy way to give good writers encouragement.
Perhaps, I should.....the truth is that I rarely do.
I did not come here for points. I came to find an outlet for the voice inside of me.
This rating does seem to matter to some, and I am now thinking that perhaps, I should give it greater value.
It is simply my nature to speak my thoughts, and I thought I was giving encouragement through my commentaries. It seems that I have held others to the same measure that I give to my self. When I know, in truth, that others think differently.
A "rating" is something that I rarely give, to those few, who have recieved one.........take it to heart. It was meaningful and intentional.
Maybe, that is the way it was intended to be.
Undeserved praise and accoladaes are meaningless. I, myself, do not feel worthy of all I have received here.
How is the giver, to know, how the receiver regards the gift?
Lots of times I like the hub, but I don't have anything useful to add to the conversation, so I hit a button, just to show the writer that I read all the way through, and think it was worth writing.
every time I read an article!! I know I love feedback...everyone needs that extra thumbs up!!
I usually do what feels more suitable at the moment.
If it really calls for that emotion that the button is designed for then I use the button.
Also if it's just a good post but I have nothing to add to it having an option to use the button helps.
Most of the time I try to give feedback using the comment section, it allows to give more information to the writer.
Maybe once in five posts that I read. But it all depends if the hub is really worth the click.
I do it every chance I happen to stumble upon anything in those categories. I've noticed not many people do this and I think of the author and how, like me, they're dying for some feedback or criticism. seriously, it's a let down to spend hours writing a story from the bottom of your heart, and end up not having anyone tell you what it's like. All you get is "(35) people saw this post."

Following this button and receiving countless e-mails about the 'Vote Up and Vote Down' button, is it possible to just eliminate the down button on this site? I believe it would not effect the (algo) of our hubs, but would allow the scores to remain somewhat steady and not drop tremendously when it...

Is there any way we can make the voting and feedback section of a hub easier to see? I am constantly forgetting to utilize this section after I leave a comment because it tends to blend right into the ads and capsules.And, since we are on the subject...can we also change the placement/look of the...

When leaving comments on hubs do you always vote up (or down) and click the appropriate buttons?Sometimes I get a bit carried away with my comment and forget to click the buttons, especially when I am hub hopping - i.e. useful, funny, awesome, interesting, etc. I am trying hard now to...

The Pinterest Button has disappeared from by Hubs, even though I have opted to allow pinning.

Even after replying a comment, you still see the 'Reply' button. This is a bit confusing. Any ideas?Once you approve a comment on your hub, you get to see two buttons 'Approve' and 'Deny". Once you click the 'Approve' button, you see the "Deny' and the 'Reply' buttons. After replying, you...

I've been getting a blank screen when I hit "edit" to update Hubs for about an hour now. Might it be a glitch, or is it me? Thanks!
