I'm a newbie - I joined a week ago and I've been trying to figure everything out...
I have posted a couple of Hubs but one of them has been flagged as a Duplicate.
I was GOD! A weird and wonderful experience
This is something I wrote 10 years ago, about an experience I had at the time. This was back when there wasn't an awful lot going on the internet, not like there is today, and it wasn't read by many people - so I thought I would publish it here to a new audience and hopefully start up a debate, or at least provoke a few comments.
I need clarification as to whether or not I can leave this on my hubpages, or if I have to remove it because it has been flagged?
I have several stories and articles which may be of interest to others, which have not been read by many people and I would like to share them again (especially as some were on an old Geocities website, which has now gone!) but I don't know where I stand.
Can I re-publish them here on my Hubpages? Should I re-publish?
I would be grateful for your advice and thoughts... and for any constructive criticism on my hubs.
Many thanks in advance
Yes, you can republish. But if that original content still exists somewhere out there in cyberspace, all you're doing is competing with yourself.
Nothing good ever comes from duplicate content. Either remove it from the original site and republish here, or change it up to make it "new".
Ooops. Sorry for the bad manners. Welcome to HP. I'm sure you're going to love it here!
Welcome to HP --Irohner said it perfectly
Just try to track down where else it may be on the web and delete it from there and you should be fine
Thank you Irohner, Cosette and Janetta for the warm welcome and for your advice - I shall see if I can get the article deleted from the other site it is on and then keep all my 'stuff' under one roof - here on HP!
It's midnight and I promised myself I would be in bed by 11:30pm tonight (instead of 1:30 and 2am has it has been for the past few nights...) Hubpages are so addictive!
I shall have to get back to this in the morning...
Sweet dreams everyone

It has been a few years since I've been on HubPages. Wow! It has changed. Years ago, people could post just about anything, click publish and that was about it. The rules have become much more strict, and now it looks...

I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but...

So, I understand I can't publish any content on here that I have used for another site. But can I publish on here first, then carry those articles over to another site? Is that allowed? Cause on the other sites I write...
