To give the profile page a new look, it might be nice to show the "Some of XX's Fans" in random (or cyclic) order. That way, newer fans could also get a look in. What do others think?
I like the idea of randomizing fans - it means that more than just Misha would show up on fan first pages.
Well, I'm happy with my front page - I've got Misha, Kenny W and you, Gamergirl. But I've also got Rmnathan whose work I really enjoyed but who seems to have gone walkabout.
Something inside me is saying 'algorithm, algorithm' ...
To the best of my knowledge fans are currently ordered chronologically, but within these separate groups:
1st - Fans that left you unapproved (but not denied) fan mail (so that you'll see it)
2nd - Fans that left you approved fan mail whom you are also a fan of
3rd - Fans that left you approved fan mail, but that you aren't a fan of
4th - Fans that didn't leave you fan mail (or fan mail that you disapproved), but that you are a fan of
5th - All remaining fans that you aren't a fan of
To some extent we want to reward people that are the first to "discover" new members of the community, or at least that's the thinking. To counter the motivation to exploit this, we do have some things in place to prevent fan abuse, or excessive fan hood.
Also, you can always dump someone off the top of your fan list by un-fanning them. Remember, being someones fan is a tacit endorsement of their contribution to the HubPages community.
Thanks Paul. Having started this thread, I'll refine my suggestion in the light of the above -
1st group should stay on top, to be noticed
2nd group should stay 2nd but be randomised
3rd to 5th group - no change
Thanks. Actually, I'm not worrying and not even about the randomisation

I know it's been asked before. I've even asked it before. But is there a better and easier way to bring in links to a link capsule from another hub. It'd make linking series so much easier. I spent about 2 hours yesterday linking an old series that I have together. It included about 20 or so hubs...

After changing the title of the hub, the URL remains the same. Does it affect the existing traffic or the position on Google ? How often the title could be changed ? Is it advisable or not ?

Looks like I'm having them pretty often recently This time it is entering 300 fans club I did not prepare anything special for the 300th fan, but I think I should do this for 500th Like a free lunch that Peter and Charlotte are still awaiting

What is your fastest or best way to get a lot of facebook likes?I know it seems kind of a dumb thing to worry about, but there are a lot lot of great competitions that rely on 'likes' to win.. Not to mention the SEO benefits of having an article go viral!

This editor's choice thingy takes my articles from my sub domain url, puts them on the main domain url.BAM! Page rank is lost.How do I opt out? Can someone teach me or direct me where to do so?This editor choice doesn't improve my traffic nor has any SEO benefits.Thanks!
