I would love to have a checkbox when editing our profiles that would allow us to suppress from public view the list of hubbers following us, in the same way we can suppress our accolades.
Why do you need that?
I don't need that!
I see no reason for HP to waste time on this!
(Just teasing you because of the other thread we were just in. I wouldn't use it, but there is nothing wrong with the idea).
Funnily enough, even though I am suggesting it, I sometimes think I would use it and sometimes don't. I just think it would be a good option to have.
Opps, I forgot:
There are many more important features they should be working on!
I'm sure someone will come along and ask why anyone would want this feature. Mainly it's because I sometimes think that it's not really anyone's business who follows another Hubber, and the one being followed should have the option to allow the list to show or not.
I'm with you there about that ambivalence, and so I think I don't have a good sense of the reason that number might be important. Everybody's been told to want an "A", and to strive for LOTS of fans/followers (read "popularity"), but what value do those numbers have to making this site succeed?
And actually, it's not so much the number that I'm talking about (although that is a good idea too) but the actual list of names. I imagine it's only the newer Hubbers and visitors who even check those out, but I think people do sometimes form an opinion about someone else based on the Hubbers who follow them. I would rather the opinion come from the actual writing and posts.
And again, apropos almost every suggestion ever made, if HP would just design an API to give us access to the raw information that relates to us and our hubs, we could get whatever we wanted easily whenever we wanted.
Yes, I know most of you can't write code. But a lot of us can, and if we had an API to work against, we could write code that the rest of you could use.
And we would.
I can't help but think of your suggestion in terms of technical support, and wonder, if implemeted, would HP recruit a new cadre of "elites" to do the trouble shooting for those who wound up in trouble trying to use the user-written code? Or would this be more like downloading apps for an iPhone? (My practical technical understanding goes only so far!)
Why would HP have to support stuff other people write?
Do they have to support Edweirdo's filter? No. They wouldn't need to.
I've often wondered this myself, although I love having fans/followers (fans ), and love to fan/follow (fan ).
Maybe Edweirdo could get to it.
I find the more stuff I turn off and don't pay attention to here, the happier I am. And I agree that who follows me or how many hubs I have is really no one's business but mine and HPs.
It's not just the newer hubbers who oggle all of this stuff. I'm always amazed at the time people here spend minding other peoples' business.
Oh, us Hubbers now have a saying similar to "let Mikie try it!"
"maybe Edwierdo can do it!"
Way too much FUN here! Thank you!

First, I want to say I think hubpages has made a lot of positive improvements to the comments features and has allowed hubbers to manage comments more easily now that we can approve and reply to all comments from our accounts page.The one change to this feature I would like to see is ensuring our...

I just had a comment in one of my hubs with a self-promotional link, which is against HubPages' terms of service. Of course I denied the comment. But then I went to that Hubber's profile and checked his activity. He had posted similar comments in dozens of other Hubber's Hubs. When I looked at...

Good evening,This is the first time I've ever made a suggestion, so I hope it's a good one. I would love it if we had an option to put a video on our profiles, perhaps in lieu of our pictures. It would provide added depth into an author's mentality and personality and probably make more people want...

I had no choice but to start a new thread about the same suggestion as the previous thread was closed for anymore comments before I could post my feedback upon the latest profile layout.It appears nice and quite user-friendly overall, but I must admit I won't be satisfied if my suggestion on the...

I like to use AllPosters.com for images because 1) they have gorgeous images and 2) I can earn income if someone buys a print. On HubPages, however, I am limited to only two links to a single domain and I must use a link (as an affiliate) to be able to use an image.So my suggestion is that...
