Approve comments, then making a reply...

    Maybe I'm just not understanding something (which is entirely possible).  Readers make comments and the authors have a choice to 'approve' or 'deny' the comments.  And I like to reply to those that comment... fine; now this is my problem.  I approve the comments made and then wait for the 'reply' button to come up.  It doesn't until I start making a comment, in the comment section-????  So, I have been copying the response I'm making in 'comments' and paste it into the 'reply' directly below the original comment made by that particular reader/commentor.  I then delete the general comment made in the comment section, because I've already 'replied' to the original comment and don't feel I need multiple responses.

    Then whenever someone else is reading the hub, they see the 'comment deleted' (?) wondering, 'what's this' or 'why', not realizing it's because I have copy/pasted the information first made in response to the comments into the 'reply' section of the original comments made that has suddenly opened up.  (Does this make sense at all)  What am I not understanding?  Should I just use the general comment section to reply and not worry about replying under the particular readers comment???

    Thanks in advance...

      You just answer by adding a comment. You can name the specific person if it is aimed at them.

        thank you so much for your rapid reply.  Now, is there a way to remove the "comment deleted" from the comment section...?

            thanks again for your rapid reply and your encouraging answer.  Sometimes I worry needlessly.  I so much want my work to appear neat and uncluttered with questionable material.

            Also, thanks for being there for us and for your useful advise...

              I've recently had issues replying also. I just went to the hub itself and made my reply in the comment section rather than waiting around for the reply button. Although, I just replied to a comment from my stats comment page and the reply button worked. Maybe it was a glitch? With all the site changes you never know!

                thank you so much for taking the time to reply and from now on, I also will just use the comment section rather than waiting for the reply box to open...

    I typed up a reply in the Comment Box, then I hit the Submit button, but my reply (or comment) is not showing up.  I did this yesterday, 5/8/12.

    Any suggestions?

      Even when I reply in the comment to my own hub it occasionally takes a day or so to appear.  I have even gotten the message that my comment might not appear until approved.

    Thank you SEXYLADYDEE! I didn't realize that the comments had to be approved first.

      I have it set so that I get to approve comments. It protects me against inappropriate comments. So it can sometimes snag a comment I have made on my own hub.

    Well, not ALL comments have to be approved, just the ones where the author chooses not to allow comments to post immediately. I don't know why some things happen, but some ppl moderate their comments section and others don't.

      Thanks Sandy!  I do have mine profile set to where I have to approve comments, but I never had to approve my own replies.  Weird.  And my reply is still now showing!  Oh well.  I just feel bad that the person who left me a comment, which was a question, might be feeling that I am ignoring her.
