Why doesn't HubPages have a messaging system so people can communicate in private?
It does, I think. Just look on the person's profile that you want to contact...underneath their picture, it should say "Contact so and so".....Hope that helps
There is a system for that. Just go to someones' profile page and click on the contact directly button to the right.
HubPages is not a social networking system. They allow individuals the option of what sort of communications they wish to receive. If a member wants to allow private communication, they will have the "contact" feature enabled on their profile. If they don't want to be contacted directly by strangers, they have the option to disable that feature.
Hubpages does not have the ability, nor would I want it to do so. This is not a networking site. What you can do is contact someone by sending an email. If you and that person really hit it off, you can message each other some other way, perhaps by using Yahoo Messenger or Facebook. I hope Hubpages never installs a messaging system. I don't like how sometimes a person will just pounce on me on Facebook or Myspace when they realize I am online.
They do. All you have to do is hit "contact ~author's name~" and there you are.
This isn't a social networking site, this site is focused on content. We do NOT want this to become a social networking site, as that would certainly de value our content.
I also have the question about this. sometimes if I want to discuss the comments with others, it is very unconvenient indeed.
Because they're smart. I won't repeat the other few answers, I'll just say that it's for the good of the Hubbers.
actually there is a system of contacting the other person.
there is a option below the profile picture saying contact ____ ,
I guess thats the messaging system here.
It does, doesn't it? I've sent private messages to people. On a hubbers profile page, just under their photo, there's a button, with an envelope icon, that says 'Contact Lady Wordsmith' or whoever they are. I use that.
Addendum: Oh sorry! When I came to answer this question it showed me no other answers, so I thought I was the first!! I am now editing my answer, lol. I find this way of messaging to be fine - it's fast enough. You could always befriend a hubber on a social networking site if you wanted to chat to them more instantly.

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...

For several months now (almost since I joined hubpages) I have been getting harassing, threatening and ridiculous comments from the same person. I originally encountered her in a forum, and she has not left me alone since. She repeatedly leaves me harassing fan mail, none of which has...

Under my profile photo, there are just two options. Most people have four options. I want the option that says Contact Pamela Kinnaird W -- and it's not there. Was it something I did which deleted it by accident -- and how do I get it back?

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.
