My bio was written to be somewhat funny, and I put it in all my hubs. I basically said that I was a brain re-programmer with one happy customer, then inferred that I was my own customer. This, apparently, was not acceptable.
I have since changed my bio to make it be relevant to my posts, but it is still saying that my bios will not be seen because they have been reported. This was instantly after my edit.
Is there any steps to take, or will they be reviewed since the edit?
Where do I go from here?
according to the hp official blog post they made when bios were first rolled out it seems moderators might disable bios that are too cheeky. http://blog.hubpages.com/2015/06/25/com … ographies/
maybe you can put something in the text instead.
Your bio belongs in your profile not in every hub. Readers might check your profile to read your bio. If they deem you worthy that might find other hubs to read.
I understand, when it comes to the full bio, but if a 140 word bio should not be in hubs, why do we get an option to do so? Why do we get 25 options for various mini-bios that could relate to a hub if we are not supposed to put bios in our hub?
I get it, I did not make a specific enough mini-bio, so I made one that is more reasonable for the hub. But it is not allowing me to do so, now and I do not know what to do. It says they only give tech help through email, but dont list the email and have (seemingly) no reasonable method of attempting to show them that you are attempting to follow the guidelines for mini-bios.
The mini-bios are added automatically to your hubs. They appear in the right hand side-bar. If you've added them to the hubs themselves, they will appear twice.
I believe the email address you need is team @ hubpages dot com
Not quite, GofG. You may have missed the introduction of biographies, which appear on your Hubs now. Go to "About the Author" in your Account section and you'll find you can create short, tailored biographies which you can then assign to each of your Hubs.
Hmmm. Guess I better get rid of my rocket surgeon reference...
Well, since edit didn't work; only thing I can think of is to do an outright delete and create a new one from scratch. If that doesn't work, then time to poke team at hubpages dot com.

Completely out of touch here, probably. I thought there was a way to create customised biographies for particular hubs. I also thought that this was a requirement for the new niche sites.I have dug through the learning...

I'm probably one of the last ones here to use the bio tool, because I assumed it would take a lot of time to implement. Not so! The tool is nicely developed (thank you, HP Team!) and even the part I dreaded most...

Did HubPages provide an explanation regarding why you can no longer easily share a Hub on Twitter using a button on the Hub? Why did they replace it with Flipboard?

Hi,I'm curious if Flipboard improves traffic to one's hubs, and whether it's worth opening an account with them. Or if the amount of work involved is not worth it.Next, about the 140 character bios. Is there any way one...

I have noticed in the past few days while Hub Hopping and scanning my feed that there are a plethora of new hubs and hubbers joining the site and publishing low quality or poorly translated/spun hubs. When I click on...
