I've been getting occasional notices of comments by Hubbers whose hubs I've commented on. Same with forum posts. Could we have this feature turned 'off' by default instead of 'on'. This could tend to fill up one's (already crammed) inbox rather quickly if you're an active commenter, if it's 'on' by default.
I find it easier just to check my Hubtivity each day, since I visit at least once a day anyway.
Yes, we recently changed the default behavior of the checkbox to be "on" instead of "off".
However, the site will remember the last value that you selected. So in your next hub comment, simply uncheck the box. The next time that you comment, it will be off by default.
The same is true for forum posts.
Additionally, for the edit feature of a comment, can we also edit the email notification?
I just tried unsuccessfully to edit a comment to turn on the email notification and wasn't given the opportunity.
This is a good point. It looks like we missed this case. I will add it to my task list.
This has been fixed in development, and it will go out with the next site update.
I have been getting this as well, personally I don't like the change, If I really want to keep up to date on a thread I will check it, this is pretty rare however.
I would be interested in knowing if there was a majority check on people who used this feature before it was changed to a default.
Having the option is good, but i would rather not have to keep receiving emails every time my cookie expires.
Would it be possible to make this an option in our edit profile settings?
Great..this is proving to be a huge hindrance... I will be happy to see it go!

I've been going through and radically updating lots of old hubs lately. I've found that several of them have been here for a long time with "no notice" on them. I know I'm still protected by copyright law even without that notice, but wouldn't it just make more sense for the...

If I post a comment on a hub and someone else posts a followup comment after me, does Hubpages send me an email notification? I do not seem to be getting such email notifications.

I've noticed lately that for some reason, I won't get notifications of comments on random hubs... all my other ones still email me though.Then I go look the main page on here and it says I have like 23 comments that I haven't approved yet... So I go look and they're way old and sure enough somehow...

We recently made an improvement to how notifications are handled on comments on your Hubs. If you would like to receive a notification when someone comments on your Hub, you will now need to "follow" your Hubs. If you had previously configured a Comment Capsule to email you...

I keep getting notifications from HP that I've already checked and they won't go out of my feed. They just keep accumulating. Why is that and what can I do about it?
