We used to be able to go to a hubber's profile page, and select 'send hubber an email.' I was just trying to do that on the profile page of one hubber I've been following for some time, and could not find that capability.
Has that been discontinued, or are hubbers now able to turn it off? I've gotten a couple of strange emails from readers in just the last couple of months; things where they really weren't asking anything, and what they had to say should have just been put into the comment section on the article.
But today, I was unable to find how to send an email to one of my favorite authors here.
It's still there, but can be turned off. I have mine turned off because of really annoying and intrusive questions and requests. Sometimes I switch it back on, but soon get tired of it all.
Okay--I went to my own profile, and can't find how to turn it off!
I have mine turned off too because I was gettig a lot of questions in my email that should have been comments since they would help other people.
To turn the funtion off, just go to the account page, then profile, then account settings. There is a box "allow others to contact you?" and it has to be unclicked.
Go to the authors' profile and next to the follow or unfollow button is an option to contact the author. As Bev says, you can turn this off, as she has.

It would be delightful if there was an easier way to contact some of the Hubbers. I have not done that often, since transferring from Squidoo, however - each time I wished to, I had to remember how to do it. When I am on my profile page, and someone shows up who I am following, the message in blue...

I have noticed in the past few days while Hub Hopping and scanning my feed that there are a plethora of new hubs and hubbers joining the site and publishing low quality or poorly translated/spun hubs. When I click on the profile after flagging the hubs, I notice that there is no information about...

A great HP feature is that we're notified on our account page of broken links in hubs (the black triangle with a white exclamation point in the center). It seems there's no such notification about broken links in the hubber profile page.Only today did I realize that two links I had in my profile...

Color me dumb, but I can no longer find the link on other hubbers' profile pages that used to say "contact [name of hubber]" that would link you to their email.Obviously others are not having this problem, as I received an email from a fellow hubber just this morning.I would like to send...

Hi, I uploaded two articles this morning. One was entitled 'How to write your life story' and the other 'How to be happy in five minutes or less."How come the one is showing on my profile and not the other?In the past, I've also not had stories that show up immediately. Is there some sort of...

Ladies, If a man used a coupon on a “first date” would it turn you off?Recently I saw an article that was laced with comments from women slamming guys who used coupons or discount cards on a first date. Assuming you would normally go to that particular place or event, does it matter much that...
