I'm sure you used to get a humorous message if you tried to "thumb" your own Hub. Now you just get the standard 'feedback recorded'.
Has something gone wrong or is it just something that was lost in a recent upgrade? Or did I imagine it?
Not sure...I know you get a message that says when you try and fan or follow yourself that you must be desperate for fans...am trying to think back now!
I don't know. I think it seems perfectly reasonable to be able thumb myself up if my own page view will also still be counted.
Someone asked recently what happened if you thumbed yourself up and I do recall there being a witty message, so I went to one of my hubs and gave myself a thumbs up so I could see it, type it up and post it in the forum, and indeed, it told me the feedback was recorded.
I knew it never used to be that way. But it had been that long since it was last discussed I thought maybe I had dreamt about it.
Now that would be cute to see a little humor for tryin to thumb or fan yourself, too funny,lol. Good idea too
My hubs get thumbsup all the time from my same computer - when I let friends use my computer and they check out a new hub I've published...and I have never received any warnings or anything. I've assumed that the thumbsup just doesn't register/count and the site recognizes "moi" when that happens. I've never worried too much about it.
It never even occurred to me to see what would happen. I guess I'm not a curious or adventurous person. One of these days maybe I'll try it.
so Marissa is thumbing her self now? LOL too funny, I must try that one. I never tried to follow me, I feared I'd get lost somewhere in a hub somewhere I didn't like, as in a hot Indian chick hub.
Only when my husband is away on business
Seriously, I only tried it because someone asked the question, and I was positive it couldn't be done - so I was gobsmacked when it worked!
when you go to your own hub, for instance to respond to a comment or to check on something you said, that's not really counted as a view, is it? because according to my stats it wasn't, but someone said it was? huh?

Why does it show that my hub has been read even when it hasn't been published yet?I was working on a hub when I had to stop midway through. When I go back to edit the hub, it states that it already has 4 views. I thought I was the only one who saw it until it was published.

Are our own visits to our own hubs countedwhen we go to our own hub for example to tweet or share or update a hub does it count in the numbers wee see in the my account page?

Are our own views counted in the totals on the "my account" page?This is something that I've been wondering for a while. I suspect that they are, but wondered if somebody could confirm this for me, as it's just useful to know!Thanks.

I recently visited a hub which left me perplexed. The hubber made a table of contents which were all links back to the same page. So in essence, the page was just reloading itself. Normally when I see a hyperlink it takes me to another page or opens another page in a new window. This is usually a...
