A few weeks ago (or a couple of months--I'm not good with time :-), there was a check-box below new comments on a Hub that said "E-mail me when the author responds to your comment" or something similar.
Now I'm getting a flood of emails when I click the box they've replaced it with--"Follow this hub's comments." Often I find OTHER people's comments interesting, but sometimes I'm only interested in the author's response.
Please HP team, give us BOTH options! Thanks :-)
Exactly!!!!!!!!!! Why is Hubpages changing an option that wasn't broken. Even After I unfollow the topic, I continue to receive email messages regarding the topic. Give us back the choice to receive notifications of Authors comments only.
I'm sorry that this change has not been positive to you. Currently we are doing a lot of work with notifications. In particular, we are trying to add some intelligence behind which notificaitons we send people - ideally we can change the "follow" behavior so that only the most significant comments are sent to people who are following comment threads.
When this project is completed - and we have done our best to automatically give Hubbers the best possible experience - we plan to release a set of options (including only receiving comments from the Hub author) to manually configure which notificaitons that they receive.
Please bear with us in the meantime!
I agree. I'm not interested in following an entire conversation. I only want to know what the author said. I just delete the rest unread - and it wastes my time.

Why is it that some writers do not respond to individual comments on their hubs?I noticed this with some writers who have been on HP for two years or more. They will choose to respond directly to some comments and ignore the others. Doesn't it make you feel like not commenting on these writers...

Do you continue to comment on an author's hubs when you can't edit your comment?I just commented on a hub, then decided to add a sentence. My comment showed on-screen, but when I clicked on EDIT, I wasn't allowed to change my comment or even delete it. I can't see the benefit to a hub author in...

How do you feel when you write a comment and don't receive a response from the author?

Do you feel the need to respond to everyone who comments on one of your hub?Do you feel the need to respond to every person who has commented on one of your hub? I feel that responding to people is polite but I'm curious if it is always expected or if there are times when it is either impractical...

I'm moving over from Squidoo this week, and I'm quite impressed with Hubpages. But in some ways Squidoo handled comments better. You might want to think about incorporating these features (in your free time, after integrating all the new hubs!)1. When we deleted a comment, we had the option to also...
