As we are well aware that hubpages has enacted a niche site discover.hubpages where many of our articles have been moved. It is a good move as it is told that it is done to distinguish between the articles which can attract better traffic ultimately benefiting the author. We are also aware that poems were already being moved to letterpile site. Now we can't put comments in these niche sites including many other ones.
I am missing the regular interaction with so many fellow hubbers as we were commenting on each other's articles so often. I am missing that. Do you?
bhattuc, there are several forum topics that have been addressing this situation for a couple of months now. A few of us even wrote articles about losing the ability to comment on all of the Maven platform niche sites.
We're told comments will be coming back. We just don't know when.
I feel for you, Bro. Sha, you're optimistic, I like that. Lol. - Lantern Carrier
I have a feeling that someone at Maven did a cost benefit analysis of the whole comments thing and decided that the initial cost of the engineering and the ongoing cost of moderation did not justify keeping them.
Unless, the equations have changed I wouldn't take the promises too seriously.
It's back against the wall time right now and things will get worse for a while yet.
Sorry to be so gloomy, lol.
Yes, we all are missing the comments section. I do find the newly published ones on my feed, but not all of them. Then, it’s not always possible to comment on an article, as soon as it is published.
I just hope, they reinstate the comments section, sooner.
Comments are still possible if you catch an article quickly or if you access it via your Hub feed. It just takes a lot more effort and the number of comments will be much reduced as a result. I hope that the issue gets fixed soon. Not being able to comment so easily diminishes the community feel of HubPages.
Yes, I've discovered that the feed is very useful. Unfortunately, there are some articles from people that I follow that don't appear in my feed. Even when I scroll down to before the date of the article's publication, they aren't there.
You were always too quick to comment. We could not catch up with you. Must be missing the fun.I am sailing in the same boat.
I worry that it'll take many months for comments to reappear. It's very obvious they are low on management's priority list, and my fear is that other issues will keep popping up and it will keep getting pushed to the bottom of the list.
Is it worth setting up a Facebook page where everyone could post and share their Hubs and comment on them that way? It wouldn't be the same, of course, but it might be something to sustain the community until comments come back?
(note, I'm not talking about this idea as a promotional thing, purely as a workaround for comments).
Yes. I have had a similar problem. It's frustrating. Also, if I don't keep up with the articles that are published I have to spend time searching and scrolling.
I find that extremely time consuming because I can't always catch articles when they're first published, either. It takes entirely too long for me to weed thru my feed to find a spot where I can slip in a comment. Too often, by the time I do, I forget what I wanted to say!
As we've been assured - I asked on 'Contact Us' - the comments boxes are set to return. The sooner the better. The Comments boxes are a way to gauge the value of your pages to others. There are some pages of mine that haven't been pulled in. I still find a few here and there, but they might have changed by tomorrow (or even as I write this), many are my historical pages, early mediaeval history, Celts... that sort of thing. A number of mine have never been commented on, so if you're interested feel free ... and look forward to commenting on the others. I've been following 'emge' on his historical themes, so I look forward to resume our conversations.
So, many of us are missing it, I hope it would soon be back there. I wish so.
Yeah, I too notice that we can't able to comment on the articles once it is published in recent days.
I'm just noticing that we can comment on this status/forum page, so this might be the way to do it, though not quite as conveniently as before.
I believe they will work on adding a comments section, this situation has been brought up, and yes, missing the interactions as well, im quite new here (if 2-3 months is still new hehe).

I spent 25 years grading papers in undergraduate university classes. Sometimes, in the comments sections after hubs I read, I catch myself leaving "professor-type" comments ("Excellent!" "Good work!" "Keep it up, semester's almost over!")Sometimes I...

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 am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously. These new hubbers have 0 (zero) hubs and no other activity, and they are never...

There are a few people I'd like to leave comments for, but most times when I read an article it's on a niche site, and so far on each I've seen no place to add my comment. Given that there are often many other comments present, is it possible to circumvent this problem?

Do you want fellow hubbers to comment on your hubs?
