A very happy Friday evening peeps - I am in jubilant mood and haven't even touched a drop of drink yet (even though it is past 7pm!).
I get some lovely Fan Mail. Is there an easy way to respond like we do with comments, and I am just being stupid and not noticing, or do we have to go to fan's profile page and email them from there?
Just wondering if there is a feature I've missed.
And while I'm here - how long has the 'unanswered' forum tab been there for? Is it new, or has it been here the whole time and I am totally nuts?
Quite possibly you are totally nuts, the unanswered section has been there for a long while as to your question I don'think there is anything other than a message option to contact them through email, better to comment on one of their prominent hubpages!!
I think the unanswered thingy has been there all along, but Ive never really acknowledged it. I was like..wtf? unanswered? and looked up and thought..hmm..I think it HAS always been there...
and the other question, I would just send a nice email. Who doesnt like to get nice, non spam email? Especially if its to find out that someone appreicates you.
I can't answer the first question definitively. I often just follow the other person myself and leave fan mail for them as they did for me. But I figure that people who leave fan mail know that it can't be directly answered, so I don't feel obligated to respond in any way.
On the forum tabs: I've seen the "unanswered" tab for as long as I can remember, but I've been here only slightly longer than you, and I keep learning new things about HP. It's possible that the tab is new-ish, but that I just happened to notice it a little earlier than you did!
I honestly have never noticed that tab before. I saw it this evening and thought 'that's a good idea', like it was totally new. Scary how unobservant I am. Probably explains why I hate proof-reading so much. I am always so busy doing something I don't notice even the obvious stuff.
Ah, yes I just fan them back and once in a while I'll go read a hub and leave them a comment. I don't think I've noticed the particular tab in question either. Well.....I am an aging old goat, so it must be that selective sight thing. Or, I do have my wife do my editing, this is probably going to point to the fact that I don't pay enough attention. Which would then lead back to that old goat thing again. Wow, I guess I'll tell her she wont have to slap me today, because I just slapped me for her.....

I cannot reply to fan mail. The page won't load. Has anyone else been having this problem?

A person who read one of my articles and signed up on HP to ask me a question-- it is not a comment on the article page. I approved the fan mail thinking I could answer somehow. I do not want to give out personal email, if at all possible, nor would I even know how to do that here. How do we...

I do a fair amount of suggesting editorial changes to hubbers when I feel these may be helpful. I despise the challenge prompts testing whether or not I'm a person. First of all, my vision isn't exactly eagle acute. Second, if one letter or number is wrong, the mail won't send.I appreciate that I...

I just got my first Nigerian scammer in my Fan Mail! You know the one, the long sob story of how someone has died and left someone money which is stuck in a bank and the writer would be very grateful if I'd help out by yadda yadda....I must say, I always thought fan mail was limited to a few...

There should be a tab for sent messages or sent fan mail. I cannot find this anywhere on the site. Thanks!
