Flags happen.. articles get put in "Unpublished Mode" until the author edits again.. and Hopes that the Moderator will be able to see and understand changes that were made... and why... etc.
I often site pieces of my previous works.. or split a long article into the main topic and make a new Hub of the secondary topic.. and this can result in Duplicate content flags...
There are many bumps in the road that could be smoothed out with a simple "Sticky" feature that would show up after an article has been flagged by the Mod... and at the point where the Writer is ready to send the work back to the Mod for Republishing... The writer could then use the Sticky for a short note detailing the changes made and reasoning etc.
Duplicate Content with Hub http://mrmaranatha.hubpages.com/hub.987654321
Split Article into two articles and added content with Hub http://mrmaranatha.hubpages.com/hub123456789....
I think a sticky would not only reduce time and effort... it would also reduce some stress and improve our communication with better Writer/Mod relations...
Thanks for reading...
That is an interesting suggestion. I think the email address we provide resolves this issue for you. You can simply respond to the violation email with the information you have provided at the top of your Hub. This is particularly true with certain rules violations that are detected and moderated by our automated systems, such as duplicate content. Our robots won't understand your explanation, but the human moderators who review emails will. We respond to most emails within 48 hours, with the exception of emails sent on Friday.
Thanks for your suggestion, please let us know if you have any other questions, comments, or concerns.
Casey.. as Chief Moderator would you please look into this hub... ??? I am concerned that the person flagging it is doing so for personal reasons...

This Hub started as a part of another Hub... and I split the Hub and took this portion and made it a stand alone hub... So that I could send the readers of other hubs to that hub for the end of the subject when it went that way... So this is the Finish Hub that several other Hubs are suppose to point to... for their conclusion... It is a source of aggravation that even after marking it clearly for the Moderators... it came back flagged worse than it was the first time. I would appreciate your looking into it.. and you may delete this after you have read it... I am not writing it to cause dissension in the site. But i would like to concentrate more on study and writing and less about trying to please some "ghost moderator" who has a different world view...
As for that particular Hub being "Incomplete" ... I have the Ordination... and the Seminary degree... not to mention Years in the field as a missionary, to say that it is entirely complete.
Thank you Norah for your time and effort... I do appreciate it...

I think the watermarked picture used in breach of copyright would be reason enough?
It has been removed from the article... However if that was the problem then the notes left should have reflected that sort of problem... in which case it would have already been dealt with immediately.
By the way... Thank you for pointing that out...
I actually did that once, long ago. I made the top text capsule a letter to the mod. Then when the hub was republished, I deleted that capsule.
The only problem with that is that Writer - Communication should not be visible to the public at any point in my opinion..
I think I have done that in the past too though... I just want to see a better approach to the problem.
True, but I was watching that hub like a hawk and killed it PDQ.
I posted a note like you said.. But really... its a pretty well... lame way to go when we could have a "Sticky Note" that only the Mods and us get to see... Lets hope someone upstairs gets interested in this...
I can just here the forum posts now... "Didn't you get my Sticky on your sticky???" or the ever festive "Dude.. keep your Stickies to yourself!!" :-)
Actually, I think yours is an excellent idea. I'd guess HP does, too. It probably all boils down to how much programming would be involved. Here's hoping.

Hi,I've read an e-mail I received with the rules and the ONLY thing I could see was that I had 2 links, so I removed one and still got flagged. I think I followed the rest of the rules. Any suggestions? Here's my hub...

A year or two ago, I posted a thread where I offered to give feedback on hubs and how to improve them. I then went on to write a post based on the most common mistakes I saw people making (you can read it on the slider...
