I'm new here, but from the start I have missed this simple, yet useful feature.
Sometimes I forget to read my e-mail (I don't know if you forget too!), and anyways, it is bad in my opinion to have to read your mail in order to see fan mail, or contact mail.
Therefore, following what most forums have I think we should implement a PM system. This could be used for feedback to the author (as well as commentaries), and for fan mail. As I said, I find it contraproducent to use the e-mail for this, being able to implement into the PMs buttons and all those sort of things that would ease everything and be more user-friendly.
NOTE: I'm new here and I DON'T know if this is already implemented and I havn't seen it! (This has happened to me before...).
Thanks for the time!
OK what is a PM system? Like as in talking over the internet?
I'm sure a lot of people would agree with this idea.
Please, no PMs.
I get enough spam posted in comments and via email as it is.
And people can already leave fan mail for an author when they join a person's fan club.
No thanks. Those who want messages will have the contact button available. Otherwise, many don't want messages or emails.
I know I generally have to delete my emails from the contact button because of spam, as well as a lot of fan mail and comments. I don't want to have to do that with PM's too.
There IS already a private message function for those that choose to have one.
If you go to my profile right now, you can see that there is a means of contacting me.... this goes to my email inbox, the ONLY private messaging facility that anybody should need.
When somebody sends a private message, I would get sent an email telling me that I have recieved one, I would then have to login to hubpages to check that private message, only to find that it was spam or something that person could have asked on a thread.
If it can be said in a forum then say it in the forum, if it needs to be private, then take the time to email me.
Im sure that many people will also agree with me.
I get PM which goes to my email to let me know that I have a message from Hubpages. Usually it someone that has a question about my article that have read. I haven't received any spam.
No thanks. This has been canvassed many times already.
Writing Hubs on HubPages is rather like writing articles for a magazine. People come along and buy the magazine on the newsstand - on Hubpages, they pay for it by clicking on ads.
Lately there have been a lot of new members who regard HubPages as more of a writers' community than a magazine. They're more interested in writing for and chatting with each other than in writing commercially. That's fine and they're entitled to use it that way, but it's not the way the site makes money, so I can't see HP developing tools that would encourage it. I certainly hope not!

What do you all think of this idea. Have an option to leave a private message to each other on our profile page. Where we have the option to accept or reject the message and also to help cut down on our private email account(s). So what do you think?

I believe HubPages would greatly benefit from implementing a stronger, more thorough training period for new members. I have been writing for the internet for over seven years now. I know that may not seem long to some who have been writing longer than that. Yet in that time, I have written for...

This is the hub in question: http://hubpages.com/education/Do-Termites-Bite-PeopleI don't see how the hub fits any of the conditions mentioned. It's a real problem people search for, I just checked in to see the number of searches per month, and there are quite a few. This is what I received from...

Loving Hub Pages and so far loving most of the Hubbers I've come across. Sometimes, I'd like to contact a Hubber in private to comment on a hub without leaving an actual comment (ie. about spelling errors, suggestions, etc.) or ask a question or whatever, but I'm not comfortable...

I think being able to send private messages to other users would be a great feature. I have followers who joined HubPages just to follow my content, and I would like to be able to contact them directly, but since they don't have hubs posted this is difficult.
