I have noticed today that when I leave comments it says comments left
Then when I go back it says no comments left on that persons article.
Also I have tried to add articles that I have written and saved in my computer and it comes up and says. This article may be illegal or similar words. WHY. I wrote these articles over the last months. So they are mine.
People can have their Comments Capsule set that they need to approve the comments before they are made public.
I removed your comment from my post Eileen because every time you leave a comment in anyones hub you leave a link to one of your pages, I personally condsider this as spamming unless the link leads to a similar or related page. to the hub in question.........jimmy
Eileen, are you re-using articles from Helium or your blog? HubPages doesn't allow duplicate content, because they know it will be penalised by the search engines. So if the article you're posting on HP is too similar to one you already have on the net somewhere, it will flag it.
I didn't know that when I started and my first few Hubs were based on old Helium articles. It was just good luck that I ended up revising them a lot, so they were different enough not to count as duplicate content.
Jimmy, I was wondering about whether it was OK to post a link in a comment. I was reading a Hub by Marye (Audet) yesterday about posting deadlines for Christmas, and thought my Hub on ordering Christmas gifts abroad was relevant. But then I thought it might be considered spamming.
Hi Marisa, if the link is relevant to the information provided by the author It is perfectly ok to add it as I have done in the past, it is then up to the author of the hub to either accept or reject it.
9 times out of 10 I will accept links to other hubs, but when the commenter leaves a link on every hub that they leave feed back on and the information on the linked page is completely not relevent I do not allow it to be shown......HAVE FUN AND GOOD LUCK........JIMMY
Just to clarify, we don't actually prohibit duplicate content in hubs, but rather when we detect it the hub's hubscore will be reduced -- sometimes quite a lot.
Thanks for the correction Paul, I misunderstood. Any idea what is causing Eileen's problem, then?
Each author has control of the comments on their own hubs, they can accept or deny comments at their whim.
In addition, in the comments capsule you can decide whether new comments appear immediately or only after they have been reviewed.
On top of that, we pass new or untrusted user's comments through a spam filter. If they come back as "spam", then they won't appear at all unless the hub's author discovers them on the comment moderation page and allows them. The spam filter isn't perfect, there are definitely false positives (especially when your comment includes a link).
My guess is that she has encountered some combination of the above.
Like Jimmy, I denied your comments because you left a link that didn't have anything to do with my hub. Had you not written the link or if the link was related to the hub, I would have approved your comment. I actually approved your comment the first time, but when I noticed you did the same thing on multiple hubs, I denied them. If it was a misunderstanding, just remove the link and I'll approve your thoughtful comments.
Hi everyone, I am terribly sorry that I have been putting links on wrong pages.
I have been merrily going along putting links on things where I get comments etc and HONESTLY did not realise that I was doing anything wrong. I thought that was how you told people to have a look at your hub.
Again thanks to Marissa and others for putting me straight on this.
Sorry Jimmy and again others for doing the wrong things. I will not do this again. If I have upset anyone I am really SORRY and I humbly apologise.
I think I put 2 on something today......ouch!!! Have been away for weekend and so just carried oblivious again.
SORRY SORRY Yes I am Truly Sorry
