What to do when you get an Editbot a Comment Editbot on your articles?
I saw these little robots near all my featured and not featured articles. What does it means? What do I have to change?
As far as I can tell it is there to let you know that there are some misspelled words, bad grammar and questionable sentence structure in the article.
However what makes absolutely no sense to me, is this includes any comments left on your articles, of which you have no control over besides deleting them.
So if someone leaves a comment with a bunch of misspelled words they're going to show up, now someone will have to explain to me what I'm supposed to do about that.
Hello, anybody home?
I think its another form of control diverting us from what we want to do, making us go back to divert us from what we were really ment to do.More disinfo making us all question what we do how often do we all return to a past mistake regret or word
I have actually spent the entire morning going through and correcting all the grammar mistakes, misspellings and poor sentence structure. I even completely reconfigured one hub entirely. I can see the evolution of my writing technique because of it.
I tried to moderate my own comments, still that doesn't help at all to make the bot disappear or let me modify my own comments
You can't modify your comments or edit them, you just click edit and go to the text capsule and make those corrections, then click finished editing. It's designed to make corrections to your articles.
The bots, whether due to "corrections" within your hub or your comments, indicate to you JUST THAT.....the corrections have been made...it's DONE.
The appearance of the little bots, gives us the opportunity to SEE what has been corrected. That's all.
Should we not AGREE with a particular correction, we have the option to return things to what they were before being corrected. (For instance, you may have misspelled a word intentionally as part of what you are writing about. Get it?) The bots recognize a misspelled word but do not know WHY it's there, so it corrects it) eg, In a nonsense poem I wrote, a redneck uses the word, "purdy" for "pretty." The bot sees purdy as a misspelled word.....BUT I KNOW WHY IT'S THERE, SO I CAN CHANGE IT BACK. If we have actual errors that have been corrected, we needn't do anything.
After we have looked at all that the corrections.....WE needn't do anything. Once we've checked out the corrections.....the little bot symbols will disappear from our account page.
I hope I helped you understand.
Thanks, Effer! You helped me to understand!
GF...I helped YOU??! Wow, that's a switcharoo!! LOL
Paula did you know that in Ancient Sumeria being consider a Celestial Cow would be considered quite a compliment . . . just saying.
blue....Do you remember that you promised no more bovine humor or need I remind you? Consider yourself REMINDED......Love, Effer!
Its no joke, The Celestial Cow is considered a Goddess figure in ancient Sumerian mythology as the giver of life and knowledge. The Annunaki established a Patriarchal (human) society to disparage the Matriarchal worship of the Celestial Cow.
Thank you Mr. blue. I'm sure it's not a joke. It's just that you seem to connect me to cows!! Stop that. I'm sensitive! LOL
Just trying to enlighten you to the fact that our society has been usurped by a group of Aliens intent on creating a Patriarchal paradigm of war and enslavement while preventing the spiritual evolution of our species through Goddess worship.
And I have no idea what I'd ever do without your enlightenment. To think I actually survived before I met you, boggles my mind, blue. Did you just tell me that I'm a goddess & you worship me? Awwwww
Worshipping my favorite Celestial Cow has been a mooooving experience allowing me to udderly embrace my inner bovine.
You crack me up. Had to Laugh out loud at that one, blue. You're a piss pot. Just when I think I'm upset with you, you say the cutest things. (Don't let that go to your oversized head!)
You all helped me very much ^-^ The problem is that the icon doesn't disappear once I open my articles ... I think I'm a forever-error user then...
Because of this question and Paula's answer I spent about four hours yesterday eliminating the editbots from about half of the hubs they were linked too. If you go in and correct the mistakes and re-save them, they will disappear.
I thank you all! It worked for all my content bot, now they are all disappeared(I always wrote the same wrong word). The comment bot still appear as somethgblue said they cannot be modified
REPEAT: WE do NOT need to "correct." It's done FOR US. Bots tell us WHERE corrections are. We go in to SEE. If OK, we do nothing! U want it BACK the way it was, change it. If this process is done correctly, THE BOTS WILL DISAPPEAR FROM ACCNT. PG.
Well, they didn't correct it on my articles, are you saying all we have to do is . . . nothing and it makes the correction for us, do we have to approve it some how?

Question from a newbie:Been reading through some well-written hubs that contain one or two glaring typos or mispelled words. Sometimes they're due to transposed letters, sometimes just outight mispellings (I saw...

I have been writing for Hubages for over a year and I am still trying to figure out how to get my readers to comment on my articles. Is this something hubbers should even worry about?

I now have 17 articles published and most are in niche sites. Why am I not getting comments from readers? I have very few comments so far. Is this related to quantity of impressions, where the more impressions I rack up...

Everybody is wondering how the team plans to remove the editbots from the stats pages. Apparently they are there to indicate that edits have been made so that writers can check their articles for correctness, but...

Why does the Editbot show mistakes in the comment section of our hub, where we can't do corrections?
by Marina2 years ago
Happy Thursday, everyone! In August we pre-announced a new tool that fixes common spelling and grammatical errors across the site. Today, Editbot, the first iteration of the tool, is live on a small percentage of Hubs...
