    When you go to your hub to edit it, are you tempted to vote it up?

    Sometimes, when I go to my hub to read comments or to edit it, I see the little "VOTE UP" button and, momentarily forgetting that I am on my own hub, I want to go vote it up. I never actually click on the button because I tell myself that this is my hub and I can't be voting my own hub up.

    Hi Marlene,
    I never click on anything in any of my Hubs...maybe the newbie in me  :-) 
    I am guessing there is a way (by IP address?) for HP to check this...only a guess on my part.

    Yes, sure, but I don't think we can vote up our own hubs. I think there must be a control built into the system to prevent people from doing this.

    It's not something that would ever occur to me (or at least that has ever occurred to me in the past).  Maybe that's because I don't particularly like my own Hubs.  (Then again, though, I don't dislike them enough to have the urge to vote them down either.  smile  )

    It doesn't work, yes I clicked it, don't even bother. Even if you do, nothing will happen.

    To me it would be kind of a false confidence, like patting yourself on the back.  It is always best to get an honest opinion from others.  I am sure that from time to time we all slip up and may make a erroneous click here and there, but the HubPages Staff are well aware of those who make it a habit and those who are simply distracted!

    Hi Marlene, yes, I thought the same thing at times, but I know I can't be doing that, so I don't do it.

    Never even thought of voting up my own hub that's for others to do if they like it.

    Even though the up vote doesn't count; I have voted up my hubs in the past. My intent was not to be braggadocious but I sincerely believed they were some of the best hubs that I had been inspired to write. If I don't think they are good; why should I expect others to gain anything from them?
