Yes, a great idea. I am often guilty of reading and not commenting. Today I have commented on three. One hub I considered extremely useful and it felt a bit lame voting it plain old useful.Guess I should have chosen awesome.But I would like a caegory extremely useful.
Yeah, this does sound like a good idea. I'm kind of in the same boat as seanorjohn, as i too feel guilty about reading various hubs, then forgetting to leave a comment on them. It's a habit that I need to get out of, and I think this forum thread is the way to do it.
This is such a great idea. I have really found some great hubs. I am not a big fan of poetry but some of the poets on hubpages have made me a fan. There are so many good hubs worth reading. Some make you laugh and some make you cry.
If I like an author I'll read, comment, and vote, on one or more hubs at one time. Now here's the rub, when I do that my author score drops like a stone. I was at 97 and after reading and commenting on several hubs, some on the same hubber, my score dropped to 95. That has always happened to me, wonder why that is!
I'll give it a try, have a little more time than I thought I would so do make it to hub pages about everyday. Some days though it's hard to find something to comment on when hub hopping. Always vote up anything which is well written and peaks my interest.
i seem to spend so much time reading hubs, and commenting on them, i have little time to write my own,,,,, call it laziness, but i do enjoy reading the hubs on here. The diversity of artiles is awesome.
And another 2 comments done. At this rate I will be covered until the end of April in no time.
Btw, I don’t believe that I have had a score above 97 in months. The only change in my recent activity has been the commenting. So it is reasonable to conclude that my current score above 97 is the result of that.

Becoming more active in the forums is the only change I have made and my score finally went above 90. I have been an active participant as far as posting comments for a while now.
I am terrible for not commenting when I read a hub. I admit it! I'm awful, but I do read a lot of hubs. I'm just not into that 'you comment on one of mine, and I'll comment on one of yours' sort of thing. But I should make the effort. There are some great hubs here by both known and unknown authors. I've read them and not commented and hours later will still be thinking of them.
Oh Im the same way. Though comment more ,than not.In the spirit of this thread I decided to give it a concentrated whirl. Glad I did too ,because it made me look at hubs that I wouldnt normally ,like Gimp software,who would have thought it could be so much fun-and free.
If an author never comments though ,Im inclined to think they are spamming.
It is important to actually read the hub you are commenting on. It seems that every time I publish a hub I get at least one comment saying something that proves they didn't read the hub. In the future I will be deleting these comments even though they are well intentioned. It will better for your...
Why do people write personal fan mail notes, but yet haven't commented on an article?Am I the only one who sits in utter amazement at people who send personal fan mail notes telling you how wonderful, inspiring, creative and informative your writing is, only to find out they have NEVER even written...
Have you noticed that the high earners on HubPages appear to follow very few writers themselves?Could it be said then, that it is more important to have a following than it is to follow back other writers and Are we spending too much time commenting at the cost of writing new content?
I've been a level VIII commenter for well over a year. Today, I noticed I've been reduced to level VII, yet I comment on several hubs every single day. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know why my level may have been reduced?
