This game may take a little bit of digging, but the object is to find a lonely hub that has no comments. Go to that Hub and leave a comment for the Hubber. Make the comment genuine, but try to say at least one or two things you liked about this Hub. The next person to post will be the one whose Hub is commented on.
Sweetie pie, contact me via email I have an idea I want to share with you
Thanks! I do this about once a day, so hopefully others will do the same.
I do that too sometimes. Probably not as often as I should. This was a nice reminder. I'll try to find a couple today.
This is a fantastic idea, my friend. 2 thumbs up!
I do this sometimes but it's easy to forget to do it. Thanks for the reminder.
We all have to try to do that. I am trying most of the time.
Its something worth doing, I do it on DeviantART too, you can makes someone's day with 15 seconds of typing!
Sweetie I try to do hub hunting at least 3-4 times a week. It is quite amazing what great hubs we're missing just because "Google almighty" hasn't found them. Glad you brought this up.
Yes and there are hubs that have low scores so it doesn't get read as much, but are truly nice I will do this before I start working today
I've done it occasionally ... uhhh ... very occasionally. Thanks for the reminder!
Newbies especially appreciate the gesture... remember how excited you were when you got your first comment?
So true Maddie...I still clearly remember the very first hubber to comment on my first hub and that was Chuck! I remember like yesterday, that Sunday morning (11 months ago) when Chuck and I chattered back and forth through our comments on his and my hubs. He was so very kind and left a very favorable impression on me about Hubpages.
I really loved this idea of SweetiePie's so I just went back through Chuck's work and found his hub "The Haunted Cornfield" that he wrote and had no comments until now! (Thank you Chuck, I will never forget you!) and thank you SweetiePie for a great idea! Dottie~
That's a great point, Maddie. We all remember our first time.
This is a great idea, i do wander around here doing it but not enough, thanks for the reminder.
I make it a habit to do this every day. It doesn't take much time if you are reading other hubs daily, which we all do. Nor does it take much time to give a thumbs up for hubs that we enjoy. You get what you give is my theory.
What a great piggy-back on your comments Hub, SweetiePie. Maybe this month, or some month, should be "comments awareness" month at HubPages.
To Maddie's and Dottie1's posts, I regularly scout the newbies, and I've been so delighted to find real gems of authors and Hubs.
I remember how thrilled I was to receive my first comment, and that was from In The Doghouse. Thank you, Diana! I like to make newcomers feel welcomed, just as I was.
Comments as a game are just a lot of work for me, if I am expected to answer them. And if I don't, it is considered rude. I am not lonely, even though I get near no comments. What do I need - a 'No Trespassing' sign, except by the legitimacy of the content.

Hi Hub Techies!I'm running IE 9 on Windows 7 Ultimate, SP 1.This is a very precise situation:In this situation:1) I write a comment on a hub.2) The hub author has organized comments in reverse chronological (newest at the top) order.3) Possibly only an issue if several comments already exist.I take...

Do you delete hub comments that are very generic if it appears the commenter hasn't read the hub?I notice my more popular hubs will get comments left that are just generic like "this was great thanks". I have started deleting these comments because they don't add anything meaningful...

When someone comments your hub, do you comment back?I have noticed people responding to commenters on their hubs by adding their own comment. I am just trying to get a feel for how common this practice is.

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously. These new hubbers have 0 (zero) hubs and no other activity, and they are never...

I'm of the opinion that I approve all comments even the nasty ones. If someone is going to be nasty in a comment then they should be public and made to deal with the fall out (if there is any.)However, I've noticed that one or two of my more ..... Controversial hubs have generated more comments...
