So, do you think we should be emailed when we get a reply on comments?

    I post alot of comments and all i know to find out what was said by that hubber in response, if they do respond, is to go to Comments I made and check.

    Wouldn't it be quicker if we got an email?

      We already wade through so many emails they might get lost in the melee. I too check the comments as you do and it really doesn't take that long.

      I'd DEFINITELY prefer having some notification if someone answeres to anything I wrote, be it in the forums or in the comments section! I find it extremely tiresome to somehow try to go back through my activities, keeping track of where I participated.

      Yes, from my side it is a clear YES!

        :-) I agree
        Reading other people's hubs is a different story--we always go searching for articles we like to read. But finding out about what we said etc is good

        me too = it would be nice to get maybe a daily notice, similar to our favorite hubbers hubs list  that lists the replies, although I don't know how easy it would be to do that - I certainly don't want to hear about every Tom Dick and Judy who comments where I commented the way its done on Facebook.

      Didn't you already start a thread about this?

      It would be more appropriate in the "suggest a new feature" forum.

      I will say what I said before - it should be optional. There should be the option to tick a box to be notified of future comments, the same as on a blog.

        I agree totally, that would be the best!

        No, Marisa, that wasn't me.
        But I agree on the "option" that would be good.
        I will go to the other forum.

      that would be fine when you have many hubs its getting hard to follow comments.

      I just use the Comments You Made function in the dashboard.
      I don't want any more emails.

        you could easily opt out of the email - just like you can opt out of the other ones

      yes, I agree, and we all should acknowledge a comment from a reader, it is proper. They took the time to answer, so pro or con, we should. so yes, send the email so we know we have a comment.

      like was said above, we can opt out if we wish.

    You can use your feed to keep track of hubs you've commented on. Have a look at your feed settings and adjust accordingly. You can also *star* elements in your feed, such as comments you made, so that you can find them more easily.

      schoolgirlforrealposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I tried that, but couldn't do it.
      could you name it step by step (on the comments i've made part)
      Thanks!

        Go to your feed. Look to the right of the screen and where it says "Filter by type" click edit. In the comments section make sure the boxes "you made" and "on hubs you commented on" are checked. Click save. Then when you go back to your feed later on, click on the "comments" option. This will show the comments you made and any further comments on the hubs that you commented on.

    If you go into your profile, and select 'edit' you can choose how to be notified of a number of things.  Your choice.

    If you choose not to be notified by email, you can have a look through your Hubtivity after you sign in.  That'll show you any new comments and posts on anything you've been following.

    Revisit the hub-that's what I do and that would give the article one more page view from me, which is absolutely fine with me. smile

      schoolgirlforrealposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      that's too much work! when you leave alot of comments
      It could be an alert next to our comments alert or something

    use the star in the feed section, under every feed you will see share, like, report, star... click the star to keep track of the hubs, forum,..... you commented. visit the feed often and click the starred button in right hand side menu in show section lying in the bottom of thr menu list.

      I think I'm doing that already. But I'm not online every hour to check everything , know what I mean?

      Thanks though.

      I agree w/ many folks here that an option of an email or notice would be nice :-)

    Hey Schoolgirlforreal,

    Would you like an easy way to track your comment posting?

    Use your profile and the Hubtivity listed on your profile. It logs every comment you post on any hub, regardless of where you went.

    You can always click on "see more" and it will list everything you've done.

    Just a thought.

      Isn't that precicely what I said earlier? neutral
      Nobody ever listens to me sad

      Hi Cags..how's the challenge going?

        Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Don't know if that's what you said earlier- I didn't read all the thread. lol
        Hello, and the challenge is a challenge. lol It's going very slowly, because I am fighting with myself about the type of writing I have to do, to make it. I am trying to stay away from my celebrity type hubs, because those are too simple to do and not very creative. wink hmm

      schoolgirlforrealposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Thanks Cag,
      but it won't list what comments people made(replied to mine) so I guess the only way is checking Feed or going back.
      Oh well

      Hi Klara

    No disrespect, but what worries me is who is the comment really meant for then?  I don't usually go back to comments, and am behind in responding to my own, that is way worse.

    But the  importance of the reply, now sound as if it is why, people left the comment to begin with?

    The focus and primary objective should be reading a hub and commenting if you feel you want to.  If that hubber [and many don't] doesn't respond, your objective was still met, you left your comment.

    Is it true that you would not revisit that writer if you got no response?

    I swear I am trying to make sense, really  lol  Tired

    Tim Tim, did you read my response to your comment and have you fulfilled your duty?

    lol

    no, seriously  hmm:

      Yes I have my dear.  To the very best of my abilities. smile

      No,
      I just get curious as to what they replied with and if it's really funny/ or good I can reply again

    That would be fine as long as it would be optional.

    My hubpages mail goes into my junk folder anyway.

      seems like unnecessary work for HP if so many would opt out anyway. that's why HP has the function where we can check our comments.  most of the time I don't check, but sometimes I do.  I don't see it as something that is truly necessary.

        schoolgirlforrealposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        no, it's not!
        but there's lots on here that's not yet still has buttons or whatever.

        You see, I never knew I could check. One day I discoved it
        and realized I had 100 or so that I'd never seen
        and I LOVED some of those replies! --that I'd never known about.

        Well, If this is the PLACE for hubpages to view our thoughts and for them to make a decision, I guess I've made my point.
        Onto the next forum.
        take care
