How do you feel about the recently new green "comment counter" left of your name in the title bar?
I feel obligated to click and see what is there... and many of the notifications are for comments on threads I unfollowed. I am beginning to hate it.
Hubpages, please give us an option to turn this function off!
IIt could be helpful to know who has read your articles and what they think about it.
I love the activity notifications. Have always used them on other sites that I am on as well. Great resource for sure!
If I click outside the notification box on the when I'm on the feed page it turns to 0. But if I then go my account page the number is back. I think maybe clicking close zeros it out everywhere but I'm not sure. But for sure if you unfollow a hub then notifications for it should not appear on your feed. You might want to mention this in a forum because I would think they would fix that.
It's an excellent addition. Not like it's being intrusive if you don't care about those threads...but it sure makes life easier.
Can't say that I'm thrilled with it. I get notifications as emails, then delete each email after I've read the hub it refers to. The green box doesn't reflect that I've done anything, so the HP elves probably think I'm shirking my duties as a member of the community. If there's a way to delete an entry in the green box when you're done with it, I haven't found it.
I like it a lot. It helps me keep up with hubs I've commented on as well as other activity I've participated in.
I'd rather not get an email for every little thing, I have two emails and they are already overwhelmed with posts but this little green box is great.
Yes, it is very useful. It looks as though it is indispensable.

How do you feel when some of your comments on various hubs are never responded to by the author?Once in a while I'll write a thoughtful comment, which I've put some real research into, and which may (or may not) disagree somewhat with the author. But I am also quick to point out things about the...

I noticed the past few days that any notifications of comments don't appear in the notifications list until I approve the comment. (I am seeing the comments as they show up next to the Hubs link on the homepage, so that is not an issue.) Newer notifications showed up before the comment did....

I just went under my account page and clicked on Comments, and much to my surprise and delight there were pages of comments! However, after a closer look, they are all comment made by me on others' hubs from the past 19 hours to well over 13 months ago! And ... to boot, I have the...

Do you get email notifications of a comment on your hub, but when you check, there is no comment?I've had this happen several times in the last week or so. The email says that so-and-so has left a comment on your hub. I go check and the comment isn't there. It usually shows up...

I am sick and tired of seeing others' comments to hubs I've commented on show up in my "notifications". They show up because I didn't uncheck the default "follow" when I commented on a hub. This is crazy. Make the default the other way around. If I want to follow a trail of...

How do we keep unwanted comments from stalkers off of our hubs?During the past couple of days, I've had numerous comments posted on various hubs that have nothing to do with the hub, nor Hupages, and don't make any sense. I've had to delete over a dozen of them. Has anyone else...
