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.
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. )
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?
Even if it doesn't count, I would still do it, it feel good

I've been getting a blank screen when I hit "edit" to update Hubs for about an hour now. Might it be a glitch, or is it me? Thanks!

I opted in to Hub Pro and I just had my first edit. Nothing was changed except to remove three of my four amazon capsules and remove links to other websites that I included to provide supporting evidence for my claims. So I'm pretty proud that the editors didn't feel the need to change, or add,...

For some reason there is no edit button next to my hubs on the stats. I have two published and one I started on but there are no buttons or links to the left of the titles to let me revise and edit any of them.Is there any other page that might have a way to do this?

I thought the new article http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Elem … tellar-Hub change the way you write articles?It will for me. I have been trying to write longer and more thoroughly researched articles, but this advisory really hit home. What about you? Does it...

I feel bound by my pride as a writer not to click it but it looks more tempting every time I scroll by to check my polls
