I have gotten several emails today, which are from when a user follows me. In the emails it explains a little about the person following me and gives and link to their profile.
However, the urls are broken.
The urls do not contain HubPages.
An example of how the urls are set up in the email is:
I have forwarded one such email to the HP team and will reference this forum post. This is in case I'm crap at explaining the problem.
Our apologies. It looks like several users mistakenly received some emails today at 3pm. We are looking into it right now.
Same here - got a new follower and the link simply had http://profile/[user] as the link.
I have gotten 4 of those emails today, but all from users who already follow me. And yes, my links are broken as well. I thought it was some sort of spam or virus at first...
I've noticed some strange problems with Followers and e-mails today. In reporting or asking about it, I tried to be efficient, combining two topics in one thread - but, anyway, it's here:
Ah, this thread explains why someone who was following me sent me a mail saying my stuff had got really rubbish and they didn't want to follow me anymore.
Just a programming glitch.
Are you serious Mark?
I had the Follow glitch happen to me the other day but was too tired to report it.
Just trying to be 'funny'.
That's probably why they stopped following.
there are a couple of followers I have who change their mind from time to time. They follow me, stop, and then follow me again. bizarre.

When you are notified of a new follower, how do you respond?Do you go to their page and check them out? Do you read any of their hubs? Do you mke sure that they are legitimate? I have a lot of followers who seem to be advertisers. Hubpages are really good about weeding them out but I do see many...

Do any of you have people following you, but they have not writen any hubs, yet these people...have some 5-50 people following them? And, do you think that it is possible that these people may copy hubs and try to pass them on as their own?

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...

Do you follow hubbers without reading their writing first?If so how do you decide to follow them? On what criteria do you base their worthiness to be followed by you?There could be obvious answers but each individual can answer for themself.

Wouldn't it be great if we could de-fan a follower? If your asking, "why in the world would you want to do that?" Let me tell you. Recently I have been gaining quite a few followers which actually helped push my numbers over 200. That is great. However, most of these people have not only...
