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

... is I don't always know you're there. It would be nice if hubpages had some way of indicating to you that A) someone has joined your merry band and B) who they are. I look at my list every few days and try to work out who's new etc. I like to know you're there and who you are. I like company and...

Someone left me the following fanmail:Just wanted to share. Enjoy!

Paul.. love being able to delete comments, but can we also have the option to delete fans? There are some who are really intent on promoting themselves that way, and will try again once they've seen their fanmail has been denied.

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...

I come across a lot of interesting Hubs and I would like to know how to post "Fan mail". When I reading something interesting I will click, "helpful" or "funny" depending on that Hub. Please let me know how to do this. Thanks

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 ?
