    Has anyone else had people submit responses to hubs just as you're clicking on the "publish" button?  Twice now, I've hit "publish" on a hub and then immediately went to click on comments, only to find one on the hub I just published!

    It almost makes me wonder if the hub is semi-visible, perhaps ghostly even, before I hit publish.  smile

    Oh, nobody told you about the secret page at HubPages that mentions hubs that are about to be published? tongue

      Seriously, simeonvisser, has this ever happened to you?  It's sort of disturbing!

        Sometimes people are very fast yes smile I don't mind quick comments, as long as they took the time to look at the hub's content in more detail smile

    Its happened occasionally yes. Simeon has commented on my very quick after publishing, but he is following me so he probably saw it on his account news feed..don't forget people are alerted there when you publish

      I can understand that, but just to be clear: I hit publish and then immediately (within 2 seconds) clicked comments and there was already one for the same article.  Not two words, either.  The poster left a few sentences.

      This has happened twice, with two different respondents.  I think it's weird.

    I believe some of the more 'dodgy' accounts are visible pre publication to more experienced hubbers like myself.  So I have a list of about twenty that I need to check pretty damn sharpish before they bring down the good name of Hubpages.

      That would make sense, Mark.  Originally, my profile name was actually "Dodgy," so that seems logical (I changed it because I'm so dodgy).

      What I don't understand, however, is how/why you would have access to a list you're clearly on...?

        I guess some kind of clerical error at the HP control room. I'll get onto it Monday.  Fortunately one of my hubs is normally enough for any doubting reader.  15,000 words of utter tripe normally sees them off.

          Oh, don't be so hard on yourself, Mark.  I'm sure you rarely exceed 5,000 words of utter tripe.  wink

            Thanks shogan.  I've made a note of your name.

              "Dodgy," you mean?  That's usually what I go by!  big_smile


              (Edit:  I hope you didn't take any real offense, Mark.  I was just jesting!)

                Absolutely no offence taken at all - happy to play along with it, a lighter moment.

    I've had a few times when I wrote a really long Hub, clicked "publish", and then - maybe - went back to double-check something within (truly) only a few seconds; only to discover a comment waiting there.   smile  Based on the length of those Hubs and the 5-, 10- or 15-second time the Hub has been up, one can only draw the obvious conclusion about those comments (and when it happens, the comments, themselves, usually back up that "obvious conclusion".  hmm

      Yeah, but these responses weren't that variety.  That's what was strange.

    Aren't Hubs visible to the staff before they are actually published?  If so, is it possible that a staff member read the article pre-publication and had the comment ready to go as soon as you hit Publish?  Some of their personal accounts don't clearly identify them with their actual names.

    That would be my most logical guess, if the comment is one that is actually about the Hub content.  If it is a generic comment, maybe the Hubber keeps such comments in a file ready to copy-paste quickly, as soon as any new Hub summary appears in the RSS feed, without actually reading the Hub.

      I wish I could remember the specific comments, Aficionada.  Either way, though, you bring up an interesting couple of possibilities.
