A little Linky LUV for my fans.

    I really appreciate my fans.  So I made a little hack for you guys.  I have a page that displays a random widget of one of my fans.    I can embed this page in an IFRAME in my blog. I wouldn't want to be overly promotional and publish my blog here!  OMG that would be soooooo bad!     I wouldn't even want to get banned by telling you how you can find the blog.  My fans (God bless 'em) tend to have high intelligence -- they can  figure it out -- it's OBVIOUS.    Each time a different visitor visits the blog  they will see a different hubpages fan widget.   I don't want to make a hub on this YET because it's not done yet and it's a prototype, not polished at all. 

    The downside is that hubpages does not offer fanlists as a handy dandy RSS feed or at least if they do I haven't been able to find/guess it.     So I manually extracted all my fans hard coded them in a PHP script and there you are.  Crude.  It should be a lot slicker.    What this means that new fans of my hubs  won't get in it  instantaneously at the moment.  But they will get in, especially if they send any type LUV juice my way.    I am hoping to publish this as a general hack that any hubber  can customize and use to spread the LUV for their own fans.  Not there yet.  Bear with. 

    Fans:  enjoy the backlinks.   This is actually cool.

    Calm down, Hot Dorkage.  Good things take time.  Let it percolate a bit, and don't give up if it takes a while.

    I think HubPages is a bit different than some other sites and that is why I  personally like it.

    Thanks for your input RF.  No intention of giving up.  I am an engineer by trade and I like to know how things work.  I really don't care about the numbers, but I like to know if I poke the black box here will it let out a loud farting noise, will it whistle, or will it ding the bell.  Hubpages has not provided us an API (why not guys???)  Mashing up hubpages data will give me something to hubulate about.   And FAN widgets are a very cool social idea, especially totally automatic ones.    How about it HP?

    You've got lots of great ideas, but with only 2.5 engineers (I only count as a half), unfortunately we can't do everything -- at least not at the pace you'd seem to like!.  We put all the suggestion we get into the hopper, and work on the ones we think will benefit the most people each month.  We don't forget anything, but any particular idea might just be lower down on the list.  For example we're just now getting around to adding a polls capsule.  I think IĆ°unn or jimmythejock asked for it about 2 years ago!  Look for it in a week or so ...

    well a simple REST API is pretty easy if your application is built right. The hardest part is documenting it!    Then you could leverage the skills of the likes of me to propagate hubdoodles all over everywhere.  And making a RSS feed from the fan club should be childs play.
