    I don't think I've ever reported a problem before.  Feel quite important.

    ahem.

    Got some fan mail this morning.  From someone new.  It contained nothing.  I only accept fan mail that makes a comment I want showing on my page - it's another tiny bit of advertising.

    So I denied it.  Got the screen that says "something went wrong".  Refreshed and the deny had worked.  Then deleted forever (sounds so final).  Got the "something went wrong" screen again.  Refreshed, and it had worked.

    Since it worked, I guess nothing went wronged. smile

      That's a fair point.  So it's the "something went wrong message" that's gone wrong.

        Yes I noticed last night when accepting a hub comment that the something went wrong message appeared and then booted me off the comments section. I went back in and discovered that not only had everything worked, the comment I made in reply was posted. So it's the 'something went wrong' message that is broken.

    BTW, can we really delete fan mail after we have approved them?. I have okayed a lot of fan mails in early days without thinking, which I find not conducive anymore. How do I do it?

      Choose fan mail and Deny, then Delete.

      I like to have a nice set of comments showing on my profile rather than a blank or great hub nonsense.

      I had the same problem last night with the fan mail thing.  I suppose I'm sort of dumb for accepting it, as it was only a "thanks" and no comment, or something.  I wish that I could choose which fan mails to display on my profile page, as some are definitely way better advertising than others - and of course, I prefer the ones from the prettiest Ladies! ha!
