Mr. Paradigm flagged me, who can tell me what I did wrong on hubpages.

      You ran afoul of a nutter hiding behind the power of anonymity. Not really your fault.
      While I will Admit that I agree with him in that, IMHO, your grammar, spelling and punctuation is alarming, I really don't think it is worth anyone getting their panties in a twist.
      You know that your writing style is probably why your hub was denied, so now it up to you. I really cant imagine why anyone would take it upon themselves to police the site by flagging random hubbers.
      Just ignore him, and don't feed the trolls. I am sure the site wont strike you down just because of one flag.

        Whoa.....Hold on.  If you put your work OUT THERE for readers....and then go a step further and ASK for opinions and/or advice.......expect to receive such.  Some individuals may be blunt and to the point, some may break their neck to be oh-so "Politically Correct," and tip-toe gently around the simple facts.  I did not read what Paradigm wrote, so I am sorry I cannot and will not speak to his comment.  However, after 2 and a half years, I KNOW that Paradigm is NO TROLL and although he has somewhat of a twisted sense of humor, he has not ever been cruel or insulting, that I have ever seen.
        Many...MANY hubbers flag hubs....for the reasons hubs can and SHOULD be flagged.  Seriously, PP....if you cannot be mature enough to accept criticism from fellow hubbers, quite simply....DO NOT ASK FOR OPINIONS. 
        I can clearly see here that you try to come off like a stubborn punk.  You have insulted, jeered and rejected all comments, except those who patted your back and gave you sympathy.....perhaps these phonies can rock you to sleep tonight, after your baba.
        Stop your childish nonsene....become much more familiar and capable in terms of our English language. If your desire is to be a writer, you are wished much luck.
        You're off to a bad start as a "community member."  Tsk tsk.

            Oh.  You wrote a lot more.

            Hmm.  There are two sides at least to this argument as it fans out over many pages.

            I side with PP who is indeed irritating, er, and abusive, because he was the one who was originally picked on.

            If you bother to read the posts up until it turns nasty and then think about it - you may come out with a different opinion. It looks like straightforward bullying to me.

            It seems no one, or very few here - despite their aggrieved sense of fair play and the English language - can manage to read a few opening posts.  If they did they might question what scene that sets for any visitor or newbie.  And whether it was fair.

              Mark,

              You have omitted, again, that there was another thread prior to the "This is absurd" thread, and if you read the opening paragraphs of the "This is absurd" thread, you will note that Paradigmsearch asks PP very early on to remember the advice he had previously given to PP. PP's response was "I don't like that Paradigmsearch there's nothing wrong with my English"

              Not one person who came to PP's aid in the imagined bullying scenario bothered to question those two posts, or indeed, to ask what advice had been given to PP previously. So, to state that there have only been two threads on the matter is incorrect. PP has now received the attention he so clearly craves, ignored all the advice which has been offered to him and that he asked for, in addition to verbally abusing just about everyone.

              He's made his own bed.

      You did nothing wrong. You are a very nice young man and I am sorry that you have encountered someone who feels the need to bully you in the forums. You were asking for help and that is not what some people offered you unfortunately.  Most hubbers are not like that and I hope you won't let his nasty attitude deter you from writing here and improving.  Look at some of the nonsensical threads he starts in the forums and then tell me who needs to be flagged.  If you need help with a hub keep posting to my knowledge that is not against the rules.

    Flagging doesn't do anything.

    It just puts it into the moderation queue. If the moderators don't like something, it gets taken down or unpublished. If they're fine with it, then nothing happens.

    I don't know the situation, but even if you weren't reported, chances are a moderator would eventually find it and take it down anyway.

    I think one of the problems in the forums is that some people think you need to start threads to keep your Hubberscore high or to raise it. This can lead to ... well, shall we say either a very active and useful forum or posts started just for the sake of it.  I think it may have been true once upon a time, i.e. that starting threads raised your Hubberscore, but I am not sure this is true now. If anyone knows for sure that it is part of how the score works then I would like to read it, so can you point me to where it says this?

    I am thinking that the way Hubberscores works for us and possibly the way it is calculated changed recently to 'raise the bar' to 85.  Now, this means it may become more important to maintain our score; if we want our writing here to remain as 'do follow'.

    BTW - I 'think' if you flag a forum post it will only be acted upon if the Hubpage's moderator/employee who checks it thinks it breaks the rules. Some of the people I have seen complaining of forum bans in the past had traded 'fiery' insults with each. I also 'think' a forum ban does not lead to an automatic hub publishing ban. Sorry, I use the word 'think' a lot here as what I am trying to say 'it is my understanding that' and things change frequently here and I cannot read everything on the site to keep up with this.

      I rarely post or reply to forum threads and still teeter between a 98-100 at all times. I mainly spend most of my time here on HP writing and publishing...sometimes I will comment on a favorite hubbers' hubs.

    And I have just now discovered this thread...

    Remember way back when I truly tried to help you? Remember me saying that I was deliberately being oblique so that HP wouldn't find out about you? It's all there in my previous activity.

    At any rate, I see that your hubs are still live. I guess HP decided to give you a break.

    And as for me being called a bully... That is such a totally false accusation that I don't even know how to respond to that. As I stated elsewhere, bullies are bastards. I would never, ever do such a thing.

    Oh, well...

Flagging is not disrespectful to the author it is more of an aid to improve your writing. well don para, keep up the good work.....jimmy

              OK, Mark,  I read the link you provided for me.  Exactly what is the point you expected me to SEE, that I haven't already seen too much of, on these terribly ridiculous threads.  And do NOT tell me "it's the forums."   I have participated in many and have found none to be as absurd as these. Over a newbie who has overstepped every normal boundary of communication & appreciation? He needs nothing, but a good lesson in humility.  His "excellent knowledge," in his hubs, that don't require grammar, punctuation and spelling....because he's DA KING of knowledge, perhaps?  Mark, really??? Or is this more of your superb humor? He should delete his FABULOUS hub on how to get a woman, with his sure-fire, no fail way to pick up girls and have them "cling" to you like glue.  I'm not even interested in what kind of hallucinogenics the kid is on.  He's insulting and disgraceful...which is his right....but he DARE not put anyone (with a brain) down for cringing at his Vomit hub.
              Look, Mark, my outrage is not with you, nor anyone but this Poetic Philosopher and his grand delusion of himself, as well as his (according to him) "awesome hubs."  Yes, I'm appalled at the "phonies" who are out and out giving him permission to be ignorant.  I did not point out anyone in particular, as a phony.  If the shoe does not fit, Mark, you shouldn't wear it.  For the record, I believe you are sincere.  I may not see this as you do, but that is neither here nor there.  I trust you are being honest.  I would ask YOU, Mark, to go back over and read his insane taunting toward people who were trying to help him...and his ridiculously over-inflated, opinion of himself.  Just do it.
              For me, this is really a culmination of the ever-constant issues here.  This young newbie does need to move to Bubblews.  I do agree with you on that.
              Everyone on these particular forums....STARTED BY MR. "WHY IS MY AWESOME HUB NOT FEATURED?"  will go on from today and go about their business, in life and on HP.  I made my observations as clear and precise as I mean them.  Anyone who has a problem with my comments, I suggest they feel free to speak out.  It is only fair, since I have huge problems with the things I have read here....especially from hubbers I had previously believed had common sense and strong character.  Quite sorry Mark, if we can't agree, but we surely do not.  I shall move on to your site and choose something of yours, to make me laugh my A$$ off.  I prefer to put this crap, behind me now.

You understand my writing yes I don't put "apostrophe's" where needed and write to please people on my writing skill holy man.. Are we in this ridiculous bubble. All I was getting was excellent helpful-happy comments and good ratings until this whole incident occurred which was due to paradigm not liking the fact that no-one would listen to him and he flagged me in a result of it. So this isn't about nit-picking me and saying I have "bad" grammer and I can't spell and I don't know english. Go look at the knowledge in my hubs and keep telling me how I'm this dumb person you's are starting to label me as. Haha wow...

Like in the other post people realize I was just asking for help and you started this whole ordeal. I've stated multiple times I'm taking in the advice of everyone and now editing my hubs so that point got to me thanks, but you doing that countdown.. is what started everything. Sorry if you mistake my words for insults, I'm not trying to offend you in anyway it's just that getting flagged, hearing people say all this about me, saying I should be unpublished when I shouldn't..

Just go back and take a look at it- Your spelling improved, you added punctuation and it was really quite readable. You delivered your message quite well.

                  All you need to do, is to go back to your hubs and read them through. You think that people are trying to insult you, they're not. There's always room for improvement, for all of us. You've just proved, that you can improve!

      Actually, you don't have bad grammar at all.  When I read your sentences out loud they're fine, everything makes sense and the syntax is natural. Clearly you are a native English speaker, and I don't know why people are unfairly accusing you of being "Engrish" or being a non-native speaker.  People who speak English as a second language make totally different types of errors.

      Your problem is nothing more than atrocious spelling, lol, to which you freely admit.  If you want your articles to pass the QAP featuring process, just run your articles through a spell checker.  A lot of people find if very difficult to read articles that are rife with spelling and apostrophe errors.  But it's an easy problem to fix.

      It's nice that you sort of play by your own "rule's" but HubPages is a privately run enterprise, so they can enforce whatever rules they want. They can moderate, unfeature, unpublish, and delete hubs that don't meet their spelling and grammar requirements.  I'm just giving you a heads up, don't shoot the messenger. If you find many of your hubs unfeatured, you can't say people didn't warn you.

      You might want to consider starting your own blog instead.  That way you can write as you please without concern for moderators and grammar police. Anyway, best of luck to you Ocean Marshall.

    no one is labeling you as dumb, we are offering you advice on how to improve your Hubs so that they will get past quality control. Advice that we all need at some point.
    Hubpages keep checking Hubs on a loop and they will un feature your work unless you take action now and fix the errors. it is not about the information in your Hubs which is good, it is about the mistakes that you need to fix.
    paradigmsearch is a long time and well respected Hubber who offers good words of advice and if he was to let me know about something that I was doing wrong I would accept his advice and change what needed changing.....jimmy

    I'm slightly nervous about offering a viewpoint, but here goes.

    If you have an important message you want to get across to people, you need to use clear, understandable, easily recognised language. You can't afford to alienate anyone. This is why news readers don't have strong regional accents. They need to be understood by as many people as possible. If you saw someone who sounded like Honey BooBoo presenting a TV programme, you'd probably switch off.

    Same goes for the written word. You need to conform to certain ways of delivering your message. The first draft is to get your thoughts onto the page. Then you check and re-check spelling, grammar, punctuation and clarity. Having your own style is one thing, but putting readers off by appearing to not care about them is another. Poor quality writing gets in the way of the message.

    I'm not sure I've posted this in the right forum, you have two on going, but they are both about the same point in a way. Wishing you well.

      Thank you, I've been taking in everyone's insights and it lead me to editing my hubs I'm starting to do that. Admittedly I like writing freely and I don't follow precise rules that don't really have a value unless you truly care about them. But anyways yes I'm going to start editing my hubs hoping it brings the viewers better quality thanks.

        Actually, this is where I need to beg to differ with you Poetic. Language rules do have a reason and a value - and it's to convey a clear message.  When you don't follow the language/grammar rules it tarnishes your image as a writer as well.  For example, if someone is coming to look at a piece for the first time and they see it full of grammatical or spelling errors or difficult to understand, they will not view you as being knowledgeable or authoritative on your subject. They will in turn find someone else to turn to for advice/knowledge.  You devalue yourself when you dismiss language/usage rules.

        Things that are beautifully worded and phrased make more of an impact.  You have lovely ideas and things to say - you must polish your writing to be successful.  I don't like rules a lot either in life - I tend to buck trends, but if you do that with writing, you're only hurting yourself ultimately.  Who are you really writing for? your audience or yourself? If you're writing for your audience, you need to value communication skills.

        Now I don't agree with how people got to pushing you around, but I also see you rejecting a lot of positive critiques too - and that is going to bring your writing down.  Some rules are meant to be broken - others not so much and when it comes to grammar and spelling - not so much wink.  Keep writing and practicing and improving - you'll get there if you get out of your own way and make the changes you need to.  smile

        If you ask for help, don't throw the advice you receive back or people will not be so eager to help you.

    I tried to help, you don't listen, I am not trying to make anyone look good or bad, I pointed out your mistakes and you threw them back in my face.
    There are many mistakes in your Hubs and they will need to be fixed.
    I gave you a fair and honest opinion of your Hubs with no malice intended, I offered independant advice without bias and I gave you an example of a punctuation mistake and you laughed at me saying it was trivial.
    I told you that the end of your first text capsule did not make any sense "I just suddenly started holding up conversations. When this happened I realized a very big key that was hard to accept."
    Just what does that actually mean?
    Anyway it seems to me that you think that you know better than everyone who has offered you almost identical advice. in your 2 forum threads.
    I hope that you can fix your Hubs before they become unfeatured or even unpublished by the Hubpages moderators but I won't hold my breath.
    You have been offered advice, whether you take it or not is up to you.
    I wish you luck.....jimmy

    OP, your writing is careless at best and incorrect at worst.

    Seriously, your hub on how to get a woman? Hell, if any man dragged me through sprinklers after I said no, I'd punch him in the teeth.

    Your articles make it look like you think too much of yourself. Some tips: learn the difference between your and you're. If you already know the difference prove it in your writing and write it correctly to begin with. You are not magically exempt from grammar and writing rules and if you refuse to follow them, then Hubpages is not for you.

      Another great reply-- The your/you're  is frequent and recognizable.
      I know you write poetry and for some of these anomalies you may get away with it in a poem.
      For serious articles like how to get a woman/women . I think you are trying to teach men to use woman/women as practice items to increase their own confidence. Women/woman do not like to be used.
      I DO believe that you are trying to be helpful, but you need to pay attention to some of the responses. Most of them, including mine, are meant to be kind and helpful.  Good luck.

          Why complain? Because it's incorrect. It's lazy, it's unintelligent and it's unprofessional, all of which are things we on Hubpages work so hard to avoid. You bring the overall quality level of the site down when you throw basic writing principles out the window under the guise of "being happy."

          Newsflash: You can be perfectly content and still write properly. Don't you want to better yourself and your writing? Don't you want to improve? Don't you want more people to read what you've written and not be turned off by the awful mistakes (I guess "mistake" might not be the right word since you seem to choose to use the incorrect forms of words)?

          Also, this is about you and your writing, not a dead rapper, so let's try to stay focused, shall we?

I'm sorry if you have the wrong perception of it but this is the 'proven' way of how relationships work, if you go against it all ur doing it causing stress on yourself. No-one is trying to "use" you women, they are simply building their communication skills making them more confident and better in their own lives. Choose, do you want a confident man or insecure?

    Harsh? Maybe, but here is your profile which is full of...stuff.

    Why don't you use a spell checker for starters?

    I tried to help you's but you's just refused to listen, maybe I should try dragging you through a sprinkler because no seems to be you's favorite word. I still don't get what you are trying to say in this sentence "I just suddenly started holding up conversations. When this happened I realized a very big key that was hard to accept." and you ignored it when I pointed it out earlier favoring the punctuation error that was only one of the many that I found.
    Spell check is your friend, you should try using it but remember the Hubpages spell check is not working correctly at the moment try using word or works.
    I am currently updating my older Hubs which I freely admit are below not only Hubpages standards but my own standards too.
    My writing is not perfect but I have listened to advice from many people during the seven years I have been writing on Hubpages and it has vastly improved my writing skills.
    I have had Hubs Flagged, unpublished and unfeatured and It will probably happen again.
    You's Hubs are low quality and will have to be fixed if you want them to stay published and everyone in this thread has told you what you's need to know to fix them.
    I love being called a troll lol maybe i should have stayed under that rock instead of wasting my time on you's.
    try to help and you's get shot down in flames.
    Again I hope you will change your Hubs and find a successful niche on Hubpages but as far as I am concerned I am done trying to help you, I have a lot of work to do on my own Hubs to get them to a better standard and cannot afford to waste anymore time on you......jimmy

    He is a young one, not brilliant with English.  He got angry and fought back.  Why shouldnt he?

    We grand writers with our wonderful and oh-so-up-ourselves way with words proceeded to gang up on him and harass him.  Look at us with our thousands of pages and posts and Hubs.

    We are bitter cynical experts in attacking people. And what better place than a public forum?

    That's how I see it.

    Now you can twist and fidget and divert the issues any which way, and yep, you / we are experts at that too - but if you READ and THINK what is going on in that other thread then you might see why the young guy lost it.

        HP probably needs new writers desperately - not my concern.

    I have to say, while I still don't support Paradigm's bullyish way of handling the flagging in the other thread, after reading the 300 some odd post on the subject, I am having a harder time supporting PP in this matter.
    Seriously PP, You have acknowledged that your hubs need to be fine tuned a bit. Please save your dignity and go make those changes. Then, if there there is anything of value in your hubs, people may start to respect you as a writer. All these threads are serving to do is to build discontent against you.
