Wouldnt it be a good idea to put an symbol next to the hub titles listed in the 'my account', 'interaction', 'Comments you made' category to let the hubber know that there has been a movement on the commented hubs?
I gather that, at present, there is no quicker method other than laborously clicking and scrolling. If there was some sort symbol showing some activity on the hub, it would encourage me to return and check it out. The way it is at present, I find that this feature is too time consuming and laborious (clicking and scrolling to find no activity, is rather disappointing).
What do you think? Or is everyone else quite happy to lose time in doing this? Maybe I am too impatient? x
I agree, the current setup isn't useful if you comment a lot. The information given isn't relevant. Why do we care how many comments have been made on someone else's Hub, or how long ago - all we want to know is whether a comment has been made since we commented.
I'd be happy to lose all the columns and just have a "New" symbol pop up when someone posted another comment.
They want us to be active in the community but make it hard work, don't they? I cant be asked to sift through link after link, only to find that the hub that I want to follow has nothing more to add. I would like to be able to keep an eye and catch up on these hubs, see what everyone after me has said. I dont want to waste my time when i could be reading something of interest.
I've realized now with your post that this feature would be perfect, and would save some time for sure.
Dont you think that the way 'comments you made' feature is a pain! Surely, it wouldnt be that hard to change? x
I agree with you, although it is difficult for me to comment on the difficulty since I have no idea what sort of coding is involved. It would certainly be easier for us to use, though!
I was thinkin exactly the same thing. Would love to have that feature!
Denno, if you can't say anything useful, please shut up. This particular forum is to discuss ideas and suggestions, not to piss around. There are plenty of other places where you can lark about as much as you like.
hmmm...maybe a notation when the author comments on their own hub?? I wonder if it would be possible to differentiate the author's replies from others' comments?
I just learned that this issue is resolved by using the new feed feature.
On the right side below where it says "Filter By Type" you can select comments and there you are.
The feed is very facebookish, but I can now see how useful it is.

I just had a comment in one of my hubs with a self-promotional link, which is against HubPages' terms of service. Of course I denied the comment. But then I went to that Hubber's profile and checked his activity. He had posted similar comments in dozens of other Hubber's Hubs. When I looked at...

I don't really use the status updates thing a lot but I notice that when I do it eventually gets lost in the shuffle of the Feed. Also, doesn't seem to be a feature that's used much. Only a few people I follow ever use it and people hardly ever comment on my updates.

I have ran into a few issues with current HubPages comment module.1. The current comment section allows for unlimited text. This leads to some comments being overly long and windy. Please limit all comments to 200 words or less.2. When comments gets too many, please allow an option to display only...

I notice that on the "copied Hubs" page, there's a column for "removed". I've never seen any Hub with an entry in that "removed" column and there seems to be no way to mark a copy as "removed". Is there meant to be?It would be an awesome...

There are many wonderfully written hubs here with hundreds of comments made by visitors. When i myself want to comment on the hub i have to scroll past all these comments to get to the bottom and type my comment and then scroll an entire page up to exit the hub. Scrolling down is fine as we get to...
