I can't "go for it" , Ken - there are already lots of random threads about Squidoo. What I'm saying is, let's have them all grouped in their own section. Although the transition is happening at lightning speed, there's going to be a long tail of confused Squidoo members so it would be good for them to have a place to go.
Not a good idea, it would segregate the Squids and result in less interaction with Hubbers. What would be nice is if all the threads already running on the subject could be merged into one as there is a great deal of repetition now.
It looks like Paul E. wants to open a forum just for the issues and concerns Squids will be having during the transition. (I read that in his blog about the merger).
In the thread I started for welcoming all Squidoo Lenscrafters, I am referring questions from Squids to the Learning Center, FAQ, or you and Relache. I am concerned that our new members are getting some erroneous advice from some threads, so I hope Paul opens that forum for them soon.
Where's a good place to post a request for review of content. As I try out the different types of hubs, I want to get feedback early on so as to not establish any firmly entrenched bad habits. You know what they say about old dogs and new tricks. Anyway, I managed to become acquainted with the duplicate content filter because I published the hub here before I deleted the lens on squidoo. So, I'm waiting on review. Good to get to know all the processes I guess.
Yes, I have been there and even posted it to my profile temporarily. I just missed the part about where to post a request for feedback on a hub. I'll go through it again. As for the duplicate content thing, I got ahead of myself. Walked away for a soda pop then realized what I'd done. No worries. Thank you.
If you publish a hub, you can post a link to it in the Improving Your Hub forum to request help and suggestions from others. It is the only forum category that a person can post a link to their own hub. If you see areas you want to change or improve, you can go back in and edit.
I am sad for you in losing money you worked for. I have that in common with you. Now I am going to take a "Flight of faith," by asking any Squidoo members, if they have time, to inspect my hubs, and if you like them, I would to have you as a follower. I am serious. I do not take anyone who follows me for gratned. I learn from my followers. Just throwing my invitation out there before things get so complicated.
I was wondering how you transfer your lenses to HubPages? I went to Squidoo and they want you to create a username, password, etc...but I couldn't figure out for what! I already have an account at both places. It's very confusing!
Hi. I'm having the same problem. Squidoo sent me to HubPages, where I establised an account a while back. I try to transfer from Squidoo to HubPages, and I enter my email address, and it keeps going back and forth. I, too, am asked to enter a username, and am not sure what to use! I did manage to sign onto HubPages, but can't figure out how to do the transfer from Squidoo.
Though i have effected my move, i didn't/don't like the idea of having to open a new account just for a handful of lenses. Now i think i may have opened one account too many, not to talk of having to get a new email address!
I replied to you abou this on my Squidoo Hub. For established lenses, there are very good reasons to wait and let HubPages transfer them for you: it will preserve the date of publication, the links and traffic and reputation they've gained, etc.
However if you have only a few lenses, and they weren't getting a lot of traffic, you might want to think about moving them yourself, into your existing account. It's really up to you to decide whether you can afford to lose your existing traffic.
When I hit the transfer button on my Squidoo dashboard and it "forced" me to make a new username for Hub Pages, even tho I had one, I thought that it would be something that would be merged later. Now that I...

Big news today, Hubbers! Over the next several weeks, HubPages will be acquiring key content from Squidoo. Please be sure to read Paul Edmondson's blog post and our recently published FAQ (or Squidoo's blog post and...
I'm 100% on the side of doing a proper beta test and taking time to make sure every kind of lens transfers with ease - from the small simple ones to the big long complex ones - like mine! I'm less bothered by WHEN my...
If we all work together in a positive way I am confident that it will strengthen the community. As Paul Edmondson said, this merger makes us the largest of its kind in the world. That is so awesome and I am...
