I had pared downed my Squidoo lens list considerably in anticipation of the switch-over ... leaving me with a total of 94 lenses to be transferred.
I just logged into HubPages and saw that I have a total of 105 Hubs. Going through the stat list, I see that 11 lens titles (indicated in red title text) are duplicates with no content on the pages.
All content in tact

Notice that my new Hub URL has a "2" after it on my in-tact Hub (as though it was seen as a duplicate) ... while the empty duplicate Hub is using the URL that should have been assigned to what was transferred.
I don't want to touch anything until I can get some clarification so here's my two-part question:
... 1) Can I safely delete the "empty" page the Hub"Bug" created without losing my in-tact page?
... 2) How can I ensure that the correct URL (without a "2" after it) will be assigned to my in-tact page?
Hope this makes sense ...
Hi Dee! For now, you can safely delete the "empty" Hubs and not worry about the "-2" at the end of the URLs. The good news is that your Squidoo URLs are properly redirecting to the Hubs with your content. Engineering will try to look into fixing the "-2" in the URLs down the road if they get a chance. Unfortunately, there are more pressing bugs to work on currently.
Really appreciate your response. Will go ahead and delete those empty ones.
Thanks for all you're doing ...

HubPages has no problem allowing its users to post duplicate content. This dupe content could rightfully belong to the person who posted it, or it could be stolen -- in fact, a lot of it is stolen. I don't know for...
