FYI - there appears to be a new background color on profiles - almost charcoal gray on my screen. Anyway, it's so dark that the text and listings of our hubs are difficult to read. Also makes the blue highlighted text (for links) difficult to see. It's off-putting and not pleasant to look at. Can it be lightened a bit? Or change the color to something more like the soft gray or greenish tone on this page? Thanks for reading!
Thank you, I definitely agree, thought it was just my computer, but I figured I would check the forums. It makes the background very hard to read!
I don't know if you still see the dark background, but mine is light as usual.
It might depend from the browser you are using. Thanks for bringing it up, I'm sure the HP staff will be on it.
I totally AGREE way to dark on mine as well. It certainly is off putting. I like your recommendations. Let's hope they change it asap. YUCKKKKKK.
I was thinking the same thing. Just a tad off.....needs to be lightened a bit to show more contrast in the letters.
Actually, the more I look at it, it seems to be hard on the eyes. I've found that in all cases, a light green tone does wonders.
All I'm seeing is a soft, light grey background. I think it looks fine.
A CSS oops, is all. Happens to me often when programming.
But, it is an indication that maybe they are nearing launch of the new user profile. Note the Hubtivity text is smaller...
I did notice the Hubtivity was smaller, and I like it better smaller. It was taking too much space before - the only thing I want to know about a hubber's activity is whether they have been around recently, or whether they have abandoned the site. The rest of it seems too much information.
It was dark on mine earlier too. Now it seems back to normal. Maybe someone was experimenting with the profiles design. The text did appear smaller than usual. And the widgets looked different slightly ... and I saw an ad in a place where I don't usually see an ad in my profile. Oh well...
My profile is fine. And, James thanks for the heads up on the hubtivity. I just noticed it when I went to check my profile.
Cags the reason your profile is fine is because they reverted back to how it was originally, an hour ago it was a heavy grey. They are testing and that's a good thing. The hubtivity being smaller is no big deal:-) right?
I don't go to mine often either, but I started noticing it on profiles & mine had it, too. Now it's back to normal. I'm fine with the idea of a screened background, but the dark gray was painful to look at.

I received notification that I was getting another accolade for 100 forum posts, but I haven't seen it post to my profile and it's been at least 24 hours. Any ideas how long it takes to post?

Whenever people check out our profile page, they're greeted with a screen displaying our bio, hubs and our hubtivity and much more.But I wish there was also an option to control as to who can see our activity on HubPages. The options could be:displayed only to your followers,only to HubPages...

I made the mistake of commenting on a controversial topic from my account. Not it says where I commented on it on my page but i want to keep my page more professional. Is there a way to delete some of the 'hubtivity' off of my profile page?

... 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...

When I get a notification that someone has posted new fan mail and I click on the link it goes to a list of my fan mail which appears to be in reverse chronological order.The new fan mail isn't even there! I have tried looking on every page of my fan mail. The new fan mail isn't on the first page...
