      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 smile

    It happens. Often it is just HP staff deleting spammers' accounts, don't take it personally smile

    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!

    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.

      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 wink Luckily, it happens rarely - but it happens to all of us.

        Matt Marescaposted 15 years agoin reply to this

        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!

    stephhicks68posted 15 years ago

    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...  big_smile  Your loyal fan, Steph

  15. gamergirl profile image87
    gamergirlposted 15 years ago

    Agreed, 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

    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

    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!

  21. Stacie Naczelnik profile image69
    Stacie Naczelnikposted 15 years ago

    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,, 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 smile

    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. sad

      Well, spelling is good, I guess LOL
