What can you do to undo an accidental 'Thumbs Down'?
As I was scrolling over and preparing to click on the 'Thumbs Up' button on a hub; I prematurely clicked and hit the Thumbs Down button! I thought, oops, I'll undo it; but it wouldn't let me. I don't want to negatively affect someone's hub. There has to me something I can do!? Help me, please?
Aw, sweetie, I do not know, but things seem extra sensitive here, as I was scrolling up a hub and an ad popped up that I did not even click and scared me to death, so I tried to get out of it as soon as possible. Well, maybe try clicking the thumbs up to make up for it, if it will let you. One time I accidentally deleted the best answer on one of my questions, as I meant to comment again, but deleted the best answer! I was mortified and went to that hubber's mail and apologized and let him or her know it was an accident. Maybe tomorrow, it will let you click the thumbs up or log off and log on again. I hope someone knows the answer and I hope it can be undone. Look forward to seeing what others know on this issue. Hugs and love, Faith Reaper
I deleted an answer by accident once, too, and I felt really bad about it - it was a good answer. There should be an "are you sure you want to delete this?" message!
Yes, I agree Georgie, as I felt so bad. Then last night, I was commenting on my own hub and out of the blue a message popped up that you are not suppose to share own hubs, and I was not sharing but commenting, so something is very sensitive?
My Sweet Faith Reaper! Oh, I have accidentally opened an ad myself and I thought I'd get kicked out of the HP community! I guess opening and closing pages and flipping through so many hubs, there will be boo boos from time to time. I feel awful,
I know you an undo 'useful', 'funny', 'awesome', beautiful' and 'interesting', but as many times as I tried undoing the thumbs down, I just kept getting the same message. HP thanking me for helping keep good content in the community' I was mortified!
I honestly don't know if this will work, but refresh the page and see if it will allow you to "thumbs up" the Hub? Maybe that will at least negate your down vote?
I wish I'd have seen this last night Georgie! I was so upset, I went searching for answers and when I had no luck, I was too bummed to hub anymore and just went to bed. I suppose I can revisit the hub and give it a thumbs up. What does a thumbs down
Just breathe It won't affect it at all. Some of my best performing hubs are on subjects that people tend to "thumbs down" if they simply don't agree - but all the thumbs up, comments, other votes etc will quickly override one accidental thumbs down - no need to feel guilty about it.
As for the accidental ad clicking - you won't get thrown out of here for that either so long as it is only a very rare occurrence. It's all good - life is good smile - it's ok.
Good to know ChristinS about the ads! It keeps happening to me, so I guess I need to slow down a bit! It should not activate an ads if one is just scrolling back hub on a hub. Oh well. I will slow down.
Thanks ChristinS! That's good to know! I'm not sure I even like the idea of the thumbs down; don't you think it's probably abused?
I know it has the potential to be abused, which is another reason I don't think it counts as much, especially if it's just one among a lot of thumbs up - it will be seen as accidental or just one of those things
I think I did the same thing one time, and if I'm not mistaken, I just hit the thumbs up button and it highlighted. I don't know if it negated the down or not, but it's worth a try.
And at least now I know who is giving me all the thumbs downs! : )

After two years of being at HubPages I accidentally clicked the thumbs down button, very careless of me. Sorry for that. Is there any way to undo the thumbs down. I tried clicking the thumbs up, it did not work. What do I do??

I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself ( written well, lots of information, good layout?)Just wondering because I write...

Do you give other hubs a "thumbs down" vote?I've never voted a "thumbs down" on any hub, regardless of errors or the tone and nature of an article. If a hub is filled with errors or it is politically charged and I disagree, I may respond, but I do not vote it down. Am I shirking...

What is the purpose of the "thumbs up" and the thumbs down" at the bottom of each hub?Is it in reference to how the hub is written - as in accuracy of content, grammar, wording etc? Or is it in reference to whether the reader agrees or disagrees with the subject matter presented? I...

Often, we'll be reading Hubs to find a specific answer or solution to something in our lives. And often, we'll get to the end and be "too busy" to rate it. This is understandable; I do it too. Even though I know that by giving a Hub a Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down, I will be...

Is there any way to tell if a particular hub has received any thumbs up or thumbs down, and if so, how many? I've been here long enough, I should know these things. But I don't.
