That Title is Already Taken?

    Since we moved to subdomains, is there a thought to look at the "That Title is Already Taken" warning that comes up when creating a new hub?

    If the title is unique to my subdomain, shouldn't it be allowed to be published?

    I can see where this was an issue prior to the advent of subdomains, but is it an issue now?

    I dunno, I can see the value in HubPages not having 900 different articles titled Iphone 5 or Weightloss Tips or whatever the top SEO title is.

    I guess.  I thought that when we moved to subdomains, the focus was on individual subdomains instead of "Hubpages" as a whole, so I was wondering why this function would be treated differently.

    Oh well, just a thought...

    My frustration is when the title is taken but the hub has remained dormant for over 12 months. Some of these titles offer key search terms. If the hub isn't active, why can't that title be given notice to the potential author it will expire if they don't use it?
