Who, Who Were You ... ?

    Arachneaposted 2 years ago

    So, I started a list of lensmasters from Squidoo I couldn't find over here. I wanna keep in touch, you know. Many migrants to these green pastures had to change their user names for one reason or another. So tell us, just who were you over on Squidoo? I was Arachnea. Big change there.

      I was Susan Zutautas over at Squidoo. I was here under the account name of Just Ask Susan before joining Squidoo so now I have two accounts here at HP.

        Hey Susan, just remember that as per HP policy, you can use the forums from just one account.

          Oh I didn't realize that. I rarely go on the forums from my other account so I guess I'm safe smile

            I'm sure the HP guys wouldn't do anything to you. It's usually for spammers. Just thought I'd let you know about the rule smile It's gonna be hard for me to differentiate your accounts now lol. I'm used to your "original" Hubpages account.

              As far as I understand it, you can use both your accounts in the forum, but not on the same post.  That's what was told me by an experienced Hubber on another page.  That way people aren't having "discussions" with theirselves.

          Ilonagardenposted 2 years ago in reply to this

          I had no idea about that. I think I may have trespassed that one, inadvertantly. so what do we do about it if we mistakenly posted under more than one account?

          1. lobobrandon profile image81
            lobobrandonposted 2 years ago in reply to this

            Don't bother about it. It was bound to happen with so many people being forced to open a second account. As I've already mentioned, it's a rule because of spammers and probably supporting your statements via other accounts (that you own). Pick one and stick to it on the forums.

              Ilonagardenposted 2 years ago in reply to this

              It is a practical rule; back in the day when I participated heavily in forums I remember there were problems with "sock puppets".

            This may help regarding the question of multiple account names and participation in the forum.

              Ilonagardenposted 2 years ago in reply to this

              Thanks. I believe I should probably stick with this profile, since I rarely if ever used the other one before. And I don't think I was on the squidoo forum much, either.

              sockiiposted 2 years ago in reply to this

              Thanks for that. I know I've accidentally made the multiple account mistake already on the forums and had no idea of this rule. Sigh. So much to try to learn so quickly, hope the HP admins will give us some time to adjust (I've been trying to use Firefox for this account, and Chrome for my original HP account, just because I'm lazy about switching back and forth, logging in and out for editing purposes. But I need to sticky-note myself to be careful about which one I use in the forums!)

                Arachneaposted 2 years ago in reply to this

                You're right. So much to learn and get a handle on. The admins for HP are giving us a generous 4 months to get the lenses up to speed once they come over. I feel certain they'll understand our newbie-type mistakes as well. You're braver than I am. I would pull all my hair out trying to manage two accts on one site.

                  I'd be much happier if I didn't have to have two here! I wish there had been a way we could have had our Squidoo lenses imported into an already established HP account, but since that's not meant to be I guess a bunch of us are now stuck with multiple personalities smile

      I was DrBilltellsexciting stories... glad to be done with that one!
      Those lenses (hopefully) will transfer to me here as DrBillSmithWriter.
      I also write here as both Homeplace Series and as DrBill-WmL-Smith.
      Actual author name is my full name William Leverne Smith for my complete "The Homeplace Saga" stories.
      Great idea it get a list. I was on Squidoo several years... many I've seen transferring I never saw there... small world, filled with many people, it seems...  ;-)

      TerriCarrposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Hi Arachnea (and all others),

      I was holisticwriter on Squidoo and now I am using my real name, Terri Carr, per Hubpages recommendation.

      I haven't figured out much of anything with HubPages yet. I have so many things I want to do and I guess I am waffling about whether or not any rev share site is worth it.

      It does seem that HubPages gets more google traffic than Squidoo was getting though. So that makes me think I should stay active. However, I was not able to activate the ad program for my account. Can anyone direct me to the most straightforward help route?

      I HATE, HATE, HATE figuring out tech issues. I know, I know, hating gets you no where. :-)

      Thanks all for listening. I am glad there are so many friends on HubPages!!! That is one HUGE plus. I should think of that more often.

      Terri

    poetvixposted 2 years ago

    I was poetvix on Squidoo and on HP.  With the move, I'm now Rhonda Lytle on HP too.  I'm not happy at all about that by the way.  While I'm not saying it's anyone's problem but mine, it bothers me to be forced to change a name I've used for over four years online just so my stuff can come over here when I already had over 70 articles here.

    Susan52 on Squidoo is now SusanDeppner on hubpages. I have an old Susan52 account here, too, which I've done little to nothing with over several years, but it's still earned a bit of money along the way. 

    "Amalgamating accounts," Brenda and others, is a great idea. I'm with you on that. Time will tell.

    Thanks for starting the thread, Arachnea!

    I was dwelburn on Squidoo -same as here. But I only had 6 lenses and I already have similar articles on here, so I just deleted them all. Shame really. There is one I intend to put on here though in a couple of weeks when it has completely disappeared and won't come up as duplicate content.

    balancebydesign4uposted 2 years ago

    I was balanceby design at Squidoo, now balancebydesign4u her at Hubpages.  I forgot I had an old account here on hubpages as balancebydesign, so it wouldn't let me have that name.  I don't think I ever wrote anything on Hubpages.  I'm so sad about Squidoo but hoping I can make the transfer and start writing again.
