Something terrible has just happened today, I lost two fans. I wonder whos toes I stepped on. I can't remember fighting with anyone. I'm so sad. zs
Awwww Zsuzsy. Don't take it personally--it probably didn't have anything to do with you. I dropped out of someone's fan club not long ago (not yours--I'm still your fan!) and the reason was that I liked one of their hubs enough to become a fan, but found as time went on that they usually wrote about technical subjects that I didn't care much about so I dropped out, only because my hubtivity list was getting sooooooo long. Don't feel sad--you are beloved around here
LOL - I lose them all the time.
Not sure whether it's because I end up flagging half the people who join my fan club and they get deleted or I just pissed them off
Fans come and go. I wouldn't worry too much about it.
I shall always be yours. Fans come and go, like SunSeven said. Please don't take it to heart, Zsuzsy.
It happens. Often it is just HP staff deleting spammers' accounts, don't take it personally
EDIT: LOL Kenny, we posted at the same time How are you doing, brother?
I don't handle rejection very well. I'll pop heads off...I'm kidding. Mind you I could be one of those creepy computer aliens....Really just kidding.Grrrrrrrrrrr. I'm alright. The first negative here at the hubs. Woe is me....
thanks guys I love ya all too zs
ZB, I will make you some Szilvasgomboc to make you feel better (big time comfort food, eh?). And I won't make any for your lost fans. I hope that makes you feel better!
Thanks Sally I'd like that. I'm done pouting now.zs
Sally's Trove -- what is Szilvasgomboc ? it sounds interesting!! LOL I want some....
Zsuzsy Bee,--- our hub lists do become crowded and it's hard to move thru them....I'm sure they just did it for that....you've never said anything negative...hang in there and keep hubbing...you'll gain others.... reminds me of when I did a 3 day seminar...worked my rear off and i got 26 positives on rating and 1 negative and I fumed all day about the one negative....lol
aren't we silly creatures aahaa Marisue
I can't say I know you or your hubs but I joined your fan club to give you only a -1 fan.
Looking forward to whatever you got. Fans do come and go. Stay true to your mission and you'll gain so many more it won't matter.
Now I feel bad. I wasn't begging for fans. Even after being a member for 6 months I still get feel excited when I get a new fan.
But Thanks Marc and Tiff. I'm happy now. I'm back at the 211 fans.
(If my daughter were at home right now She would say 'mom you're such a big baby')
I'm the same way. I feel a sting when someone unsubscribes from one of my lists and even WORSE if they post a bad comment when they do it Luckily, it happens rarely - but it happens to all of us.
I still get nervous when I see that one of my unsubscribes left a comment. Usually they just say too much e-mail and sometimes they actually say something helpful, but I'm always afraid that someone is going to say something bad about me. But hey, you can't please everybody. And if you do please everybody then you're probably not doing much of anything.
I was going through Hubtivity one day, Zsuzsy Bee, when I saw that two people had become my fans. But I noticed there were two entries for each of them, indicating that they had accidentally double clicked. When I looked at my total it had jumped to 100 fans. Later it dropped to 99, and a little later it fell to 98. I realized that HubPages must have made the correction. I'll bet that's what happened to you. None of these nice people on HubPages would ever drop you from their fan club, I'm sure.
I thought I was already your fan but when I was reading your post I realized I had not signed up. I have fixed the oversight and am now officially a fan.
Mark!! It's cuz you're a va-jay-jay, remember?
Don't worry about it, babe! Nobody would dare to think, if they were a kind hearted soul, that you were here begging. *squishie hugs* Besides, who wouldn't want to be your fan? You are like, super awesome in the best way!
Hi Zs!! I would guess that it only had to do with HP moderating spam, etc., and deleting some of those hubbers. I lost a few fans too recently and was worried, but checked my Hubtivity and didn't see anyone specifically leaving my fan club. I'm chalking it up to HubPages' spring cleaning.
You are too nice to have made anyone upset... Your loyal fan, Steph
Heck, I'm glad that my fans haven't really changed. I'm a meanie!
I'm blushing here because I stirred up such a bees nest.
William, Matt thanks for your kind words. Quotations I love to read your hubs too.
Marisue szilvasgomboc are a Hungarian plum dumpling that Sally requested a recipe for (see hub).
Mark 'mon ami ' There is no way you could have pissed anyone off is there? By the way what a va-jay-jay?
Charlotte 'bearhugs' back to you too. How is the Sierra?
Steph thanks I'm your loyal fan too.
Thanks Guys I'm really embarrased about my suck attack.
warmest regards Zsuzsy
*squeals and hugs more*
Sierra is doing GREAT. She's just about finished shedding and she needs her nails clipped, but she's happy as a clam and super adorable.
Hi ZB- I know how you feel- someone dropped me off their friends list at Yuwie and I was like "What??" What did I say or do?? But like everyone else said here- they will come and go,
We are such sensitive creatures though- that's probably why it bothers us so!!
Your loyal fan, Dorsi
Oh, well, I became your fan today. That makes up for one of the lost ones, aye?
I know how you feel....I work in a field where rejection and objections are part of the daily challenge. You never get used to it. I was taught that every NO brings you one step closer to the next YES. It's pure mathmatics....odds are you will pick up many many more fans than those few you lose.....cuz you're good at what you're doing!
I never know when I lose fans because I can't ever remember the number of fans I have. I'm just not good with numbers...can barely remember my phone number. My mind just blocks it out. I will even look at the clock to check the time...but, numbers...so, I always have to look at least twice for the time to register.
I'm like that too, Stacie. I was born knowing English grammar, but just can't hold numbers in my head. Glad to know I'm not the only one. I can never remember how many fans I have either. I'm always surprisedLOL -- I also get lost a lot because I have trouble with directions(left and right) too. And let's not even talk about spatial relations and simple arithmetic
I can spell just about anything. I remember words and letters...but numbers and I just don't mesh. My aunt can see or hear a phone number once, and remember it ten years later.
me too me too-- I used to win spelling bees in school and not be able to do long division. I do remember my landline phone # because I've had it for 10 years, but I still have to look up my own cell which I've had for four years.
Well, spelling is good, I guess LOL

... is I don't always know you're there. It would be nice if hubpages had some way of indicating to you that A) someone has joined your merry band and B) who they are. I look at my list every few days and try to work out who's new etc. I like to know you're there and who you are. I like company and...

Looks like I'm having them pretty often recently This time it is entering 300 fans club I did not prepare anything special for the 300th fan, but I think I should do this for 500th Like a free lunch that Peter and Charlotte are still awaiting

Overnight, I gained five fans.All of the names(but one) were totally unfamiliar.I had not read or commented on any of their hubs(except one) so I went to check the profiles and hubtivity of each.One had fanned about 20 people in the past 8 hours.One had fanned about 40 people in the past 11...

Hey guys, I wanted to see if you guys could help a little...My good friend Univited Writer needs just one more FAN to reach the ridiculously high fan count of 500! I know she'll despise me for it, but I still insist! Please show your support for a great neighbor of ours!!!Here's her...

For me I came on here cos I wanted to see if people actually like I'm writing. So the more people who actually read the stuff, the happier I am. For me, thats the reward.
