Strange Sightings on Hubpages
Over the past few weeks I've visited my own Hubpages and found them looking strange and odd. I didn't know who to ask or where to go for help concerning this matter. I've also wondered whether other people had the same experience.
The screen captures below illustrate what's been going on. I haven't done anything about this situation, as I'm not one to complain, nor do I feel much can be done about this situation.
Sometimes I think Hubpages goes through growing pains, making behind the scenes changes.
I must admit one thing has definitely changed for me on Hubpages and this affects the category of advertising. Thus, in addition to the strange behavior and views of my pages, I'm wondering if Hubpages removes all income from HP Advertising in the cases where Google Adsense is removed. There! I said it, and you now know that just like some of my other HP friends who have lost their Google Adsense accounts and potential income, you can count me in on that list, as well. And, I know some people will try to fight this situation, or start up new accounts, but I feel this waste of time will not get you anywhere.
Google rules the earth, although they will in time lose their reign and some other entity will be king of the hill as technology continues to move as break neck speed.
Take a look below and let me know what you think, any ideas or suggestions? The first image shows the potential category selections for this HP about strange looking Hubpages layouts.

When Starting A New HubPages Article
You are supposed to enter the appropriate category listing and topic for your Hubpages when you begin the entry. I tried to search under "HubPages" as that is the major topic. The choices are listed above. Do you see anything that pertains to this issue of strange views? I'm not sure you would call it glitches or errors. Perhaps the illustrations below are perfectly fine, but I'm not used to them, since they may be reserved for members who don't have any Adsense accounts.

Suddenly Contains Violations
Suddenly out of the blue, these perfectly fine Hubpages contain violations. You know its getting so that the Google Kingdom seems to rule heavy with a heavy hand. Anything they do not like gets the boot. Kicked right out of their little Fiefdom.
The problem with blue background Hubpages I just learned is due to some type of violation, although it does not always show up in your dashboard warnings. And, strangely this has been occurring to a number of Hubpages way before this week when we received the notice as shown below.
Please note this message when you go to your dashboard on Hubpages:
Possible erroneous Hub violation symbol | A bug is making some Hubs show the red skull warning erroneously. If your Hubs are compliant with our rules, then please ignore the red skulls for now. (You can see if clicking the "Check for Violations Now" button at the bottom helps make them disappear in the meantime; it has for some. If it does not, please be patient as we work on a fix.)

As If That Was Not Bizarre Enough Take A Look At This
As a Mac user, I sometimes change the view mode from distant to closer up. Distant to see the entire layout of the page; and closer up to read the type with larger letters.
Take a look at this little quirk in the system. When I zoom out to see the entire page, all but the story in the middle column disappear and show just a total white background. What do you make of this?
Maybe "Windows" users don't have this problem at all?
More Changes Underway In 2012
As Hubpages authors we can now choose different selections and categories for our work. Will you choose the video, recipes, or other types of categories. Even if you haven't, your old pages will now have a different kind of format. Take a look at the two images below.
1) My Spring Mushroom Recipe Hubpages has automatically been recategorized. The page looks nothing like when I originally composed it and the similar types of articles have shifted from the right hand column to the center column within the main article. It's almost as if when we use the LINKS CAPSULE they have been integrated within the center of the HP.
2) Someone has designed a light grey watermarked background to designate the type of Hubpages you are reading. At this time, all you see is the grey background with all other missing and identifying information about the author missing. I assume this will be fixed some time in the future.

For long time Hubpages members, you will be very familiar with the option to VOTE UP or DOWN on each article. However, I just visited Mark Ewbie's Pinterest Hubpages and the new format appears as shown below. His other related or similar Hubpages now listed below and NO VOTE BUTTON. There remains the option to choose the type of rating from interesting, useful to awesome and beautiful.

Hubpages May Be In Your Life Today
You know I'm thinking to myself, why continue to write on Hubpages without any reward of income. I was actually doing quite well before the fiasco.
The truth be told, the Hubpages community has wonderful people who share, converse and support each other through thick and thin.
What other community would be so welcoming, have the fun games to play in the forum, advocate with passion about their favorite topics, leave remarkable comments and additional information, share tweets and FaceBook links and have contests and virtual parties?
What's it all About? This Hubpages highlights some unusual activity on this network, that I'm sure will be ironed out before we know it. However, I wanted to get some feedback from other HP members to see if they were having the same issues.
