    Well, it is working, but only for some hubs and not others. is there an individual setting somewhere I've missed?
    I'm getting notifications of 3 or 4 hub comments a day so thought all was well.
    Then I discover over 50 new comments on one hub over the last 7 days that I wasn't notified of.
    How many others have I missed?
    Help!

    I've noticed that a few have not come through email notification, but the numbers do appear next to "comments" by the profile picture on the home page.

      Do they?

      Oh well never noticed, plus I know they also appear on stats, but with this many hubs I depend totally on the email notification system.

        Yes. You have a lot more comments, but I would like to see it come back, too.

    In your settings there is under Notify me  "When a hub that I am following gets a comment" and gives you the usual choices of instant email, etc. This means hubs you wrote (which you automatically follow) or hubs you comment on which you can select to follow or unfollow at the top of the comments in each one.

    I ask for notification of comments in the daily "digest" which means a lot less mail.  The settings have changed some so good idea to check and see if you want to reorganize things.

      Would that be under profile > email settings? That is set to notify me. I never changed anything so I'm assuming this a bug.

        my account - profile - email settings - notify me


        but I have mine set to daily digest for hub comments - (these are both for hubs I've written and ones I've commented on and follow.  You follow your own hubs and others that you comment on automatically unless you unfollow them)

    I have had this annoying problem too and so have missed out on approving comments for several days only to log in and find a pile waiting!

    If you find that the notifications are not arriving in your email account you can do the following:
    When you go to the home button on the right hand side of the page you should be able to see that you have hub comments and can click on the comment section to see exactly which hubs have the comments.
