Just read a hub that said, if you read a hub you must comment. Do you always do that?
Just read a hub that said, if you read a hub you must comment. Also said we should all put copyright notice on our hubs. Am I the only one just now learning these rules?
I don't think that there is a "must" about it. Many of the hubs I read aren't noteworthy (to me, anyway) but I try to comment where I can to help the other hubbers out with scores,etc. I know that I have a certain amount of traffic on my hubs, but the actual comments are no where near that number.
Perhaps I am not noteworthy as well!
Not sure what hub you are ready but you don't have to comment. It is certainly nice to do so and it offers feedback for the author. But there is no requirement. Copyrighting and a copyright notice is a good idea but it still does not prevent theft of your material.
There is no rule, written or not, requiring a comment on every hub you read.
I generally leave a comment (except when hub hopping) to any hub I have enjoyed reading, but do it as much as encouragement to the author as anything else. Certainly not to follow some imagined rule.
Your hubs are automatically copyrighted by law; putting the symbol won't add anything. At most it might discourage a very naive thief, if there is such a thing.
No, and i would not comment on a hub that told me i must
I'm with Uninvited Writer...sometimes you don't get what you ask for.
I've been copyrighting my hubs ever since I used a tracking program and found people stealing my hubs verbatim, without attribution (to the tune of 18,000 hits just for one article--stealing my traffic!)
I don't comment on every hub I read, but I do comment on the ones I like!
If I comment on a hub it really moved me. I would never comment out of a sense of obligation, and even if I really like a hub I might just vote it up without leaving a comment if it already has lots of comments and I don't feel I have anything to add.
You do not have to comment on any hub you don't want to. That was just one person's way of doing things.
No, only if i feel like commenting...It depends upon the content of the hub.
I have done that on some of my hubs because I thought the hub subject was important to get feedback. Those hubs also had polls on them so I requested that they at least click on a poll. And I usually add that if they choose neither then vote down the hub because I apparently didn't do a good job.
Sometimes, if I come across a hub that has no comments, I will make a comment even if the hub subject matter is not my favorite.
I don't like Apathy, and that seems to be the trend this century, and it is possibly a carry over from the end of the last century.
Feel free to vote down any or all of my hubs based on this comment alone.
At least it would be a non apathetic gesture.
I read that also, but I disagree. I only comment when I have something to add or want to let the writer know that they did an exceptional job. If I commented on every hub I read, I wouldn't be able to read half as many.
As an author, I always appreciate comments and welcome suggestions. I try to comment on them if I read a hub because feedback is valuable to the author. This is a good question and I have learned something from hubber answers.
How rude of the person who wrote that Hub. If I came across a Hub like that, I'd deliberately NOT leave a comment on principle!
I only comment on a Hub when I'm impressed with the presentation of the material, or feel I have something to add. I read way too many hubs to comment on them all.
I only comment on hubs when the subject was something that really interested me, or stirred some kind of reaction in me when I was reading it.. Or if it's really well written. I like to leave encouraging comments for other hubbers. It feels great when you get a comment from someone out there in the hub-universe telling you that they appreciate your work.. I find it feels just as great to pass that feeling onto someone else...
As well, I really like to leave a comment to any well written hubs I come across that don't have any comments yet... to try and enourage others to leave a comment as well.
