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've had some very nice and thoughtful fan mail responses. I wish there was a way I could say thank you. I'm new to HP, is there a way to contact people privately?

Might be a brain fart here, but I have a couple of fans I'd like to leave fan mail for...how do you find that option? TX in advance.

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....

When I get a notification that someone has posted new fan mail and I click on the link it goes to a list of my fan mail which appears to be in reverse chronological order.The new fan mail isn't even there! I have tried...

I would like to see an indication on the Home Page (I use the standard) if someone leaves fan mail (or joins as a follower), a notification similar to comments left would be nice. You typically do not see this, or at...
