I wanted to let someone know that I thought there hub was really Awesome, I clicked the awesome button it said 1. I later went back the page but it no longer registered my opinion I clicked again and registered as 1 again. I refreshed the page to check and once more the 1 was missing against awesome. I've also tried my clearing my cache just in case but still it doesn't appear to be registering my Awesome opinion.
Perhaps there is a really good reason that I'm not aware of?
The hub in question is "Romantic designs a recording" by attemptedhumour.
I noticed something similar yesterday when rating a hub. I wonder what the answer will be?
I know now its not just the hub I posted and referenced below - thanks for the heads up Kirstenblog I have now read your hub on Vicar of Dibley (very useful by the way from one fan of the show to another) but unfortunately it wouldn't record the Useful-ness.
Hope this bug (?) is sorted out soon - no pressure of course back end IT people :-)
Ahhh bummer! I would have been chuffed to see it marked as useful! Glad you enjoyed it tho! I just LOVE the Vicar of Dibley, Dawn French is soo cool! Anyway I hope that maybe your vote will be saved and when the HP elves get their tool box out and hammer a few things, screw a things back in there, the site will remember the ratings and show them again
I've missed many episodes of Vicar of Dibley. I got into it right at the beginning of the final season.... I wouldn't mind getting a a hold of the series to catch up on some laughter that I have missed.
BTW, I've just checked the official results that rates all of you in this thread and the official result is out. You are all AWESOME.
I think what I have been experiencing is LAG. I posted a comment yesterday twice by accident because it didn't immediately show after clicking the submit button.
Pcunix your advice might just have hit the nail on the head! I will be more patient with the instantness of the content management system.
I don't remember right now, but doesn't it sometimes take a few minutes for those things to register?
There may indeed be something wrong - my totals on those things usually creep upward steadily, but seem to have been stalled for a few days. On the other hand, it may just be that none of the recent visitors liked anything they read!
I think it may be happening on my latest hub on keeping dogs outside. A couple of the commenters said they had rated it up and shared it, but there is only one 'share' showing, and that would have been me when I shared it on Facebook.
I believe this has not been working since I arrived two months ago. It's the only explanation.
Aye, me too. I am quite certain I am way more awesome than HubPages wants to admit.
No, it definitely has not been broken for two months. I would say a week at the absolute most.
And most likely it will get fixed and you'll see a sudden jump in those stats.
Hmm. Well that puzzles me. The results on my hubs do not tally with my expected awesomeness spreadsheet which I drew up just before joining. I will write a letter of complaint to someone.
Surely the fault is with your readers. I doubt a letter would impress them; I suggest that a personal visit and a thinly veiled threat is best. The more thinly, the better. Just keep it on the edge of plausible deniability.
That's what has worked for me.
Perhaps you need to recalibrate your awesomometer.
I have made a slight adjustment and got a circular reference warning in Excel. I think this means I am in danger of vanishing up my...
That could be where the rest of the awesomeness is hiding!
Can I have a copy of the awesomeness spread sheet please? I would love to tabulate my own awesomeness
I'd love to oblige but don't want to give my marketing secrets away. If this fell into the wrong hands it could be dynamite.
I did however put some of your work through my calculator and it gave impressive results.
May be a bug.
Btw, it can't be entirely broken because I just got a "Useful" somewhere.
The HubPages software analyzes every hub and disables inappropriate feedback options. Sorry folks, but they have made awesomeness harder to obtain in 2011. It's part of HubPages long term strategy to make awesome content even more awesome so they need to set higher standards...

As many of you know, HP has recently provided us with a number of new ways to record feedback to the writers of hubs. In addition to just making ordinary comments, you can now add reinforcing clicks by simply checking the words "Useful", " Funny", "...

...and I was wondering what all of you Hubbers out there thought of it. I just started working here with the rest of the HubPage crew(my official title is 'Communicator of Awesomeness!' aka marketing manager) and I have heard that the newsletter hasn't changed a whole lot lately. So, I figured that...

Which "Was this hub...?" response do you like to receive the most?Funny, useful, awesome or beautiful? Of course, they are all complimentary but try not to just say "any of them". What is the reason you like the one you choose the most?
by Linda Crampton 8 years ago
The "Useful, Funny etc." ratings are not being updated on my most recent hub and on some other people's hubs. On my hub people tell me in the comments section that they've given me a rating, but it hasn't appeared under my hub or in my profile, even after two days. I've seen the same...

What does it take to get a funny, useful, beautiful, or awesome from you?What are your qualifications for rating a hub down, but not flagging it?How often do you rate?
by Chitrangada Sharan 3 years ago
Do you miss those ratings at the bottom of the hub-Awesome, Interesting, Useful, Pinned and others?
