Don't I deserve to be on the hubpages and the forum.

    richypeeposted 7 years ago

    I posted a topic on, 'I will definitly publish 70 hubs a week because I got time for that'. Nelle Hoxie and Marisa Wright advised me to review and have good layout on my hubs, also I need to write over 800 words for my hubs to be ranked by google. Today I check my hubs and they're all been flagged as duplicate. Don't I deserve good things on hubpages. If I did anything wrong to a hubber, can't that hubber tell me the wrong that I did or forgive me. Anyway I hope hubpages management will consider my hubs to be published.

      i wouldn't feel too bad about it.  in fact, like over 10 of my hubs are flagged saying the exact same thing, yet all it effects is the score on them.  when i contacted hubpages about that, they told me it's because if you blog on other site besides here.  i.e. yahoo, myspace, and so on.  then it'll flag your hub if you just copy and paste a blog, you may have written like a few years ago on myspace onto here.  that's why i don't blog anywhere else except here anymore to avoid such issues.  you see when i was a kid, i used to review films online since i was 13, so most of my reviews are copied and pasted from ones i wrote on yahoo a while back. 

      you catch my drift?  it's probably only saying that because you have the same blog written on another site somewhere, as that would be the only explanation i can give.  however, if that's not the case, then i don't know what to tell you then.  anyway, i hope that helps.

      I would advise you to change your pic to an avatar. Social sites are full of people who are intolerant of any opinions differing from their own or intolerant of people of different ethnicity.

      You know what?
      You should probably talk to the HP people themselves and not waste time getting our opinions.
      The HP people are paid to answer your questions and are trained to do so as well.
      Mind you, it doesn't mean no one i here is right but going directly to the source worked best for me and I have had BULK flaggings--which is why after months my HP score is still under 89--lol!

      Never copied any articles, I wrote them myself, a hubber told me he's gonna knock of all my hubs when posted this on the forum "I will definitely publish 70 hubs a week". Suddenly he flagged one hub of mine.And today hubpages e-mailed me that my hubs needs revision.

          Stevennix2001posted 7 years ago in reply to this

          i honestly couldn't say because im not working in the hubpages administrative staff.  however, if you scroll back and read what i said previously, that might explain it.  if you used to have a different e-mail address that you blogged under, then that might be the reason you got flagged.  however, if that's not the case, and you believe your in the wrong, then all i can tell you is to contact hubpages immediately and let them know about your displeasure in this as it's probably just a misunderstanding.

        I find it hard to believe that you wrote numerous hubs and they all coincedentally have tons of duplicate material.

        IDK about that one bro?

      4. Eric Graudins profile image61
        Eric Graudinsposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        That's interesting.
        You currently have one hub about Insurance.

        Which has exactly the same text as an article published on October 15th at http://rhodeswilliams.blogspot.com/2009 … at-is.html

        (Edit: richie is a fast worker. His insurance hub was removed about 5 minutes after I  posted this)

        And that same article has also been published on many other websites.

        Please tell us how all of these sites come to have your
        "original" article on it?

        And another thing I found really strange.
        I visited your blog, where an article about WebKinz is on the front page.
        http://www.richypee.blogspot.com/

        The content of that article is identical to this hub written by Maddie Ruud, our HubPages moderator quite some time ago.
        http://hubpages.com/hub/Webkinz-Clothin … ne-Recipes

        How do you explain this?

        I refer you to P.T. Barnum's famous saying:
        "You can fool some of the people all of the time,
        and all of the people some of the time.
        But you can't fool all of the poeople all of the time".

    Jeffrey Nealposted 7 years ago

    I read the other thread, and it was mentioned several of your hubs had NO words.  I even checked out a couple that were like that myself.  Perhaps that is also part of your issue?

    Just write original content that is not posted anywhere else on the web, and you should be okay.  Try taking a look at hubs by the people who responded to you in the other thread for some good examples.

    Daniel Carterposted 7 years ago

    Richie, everyone here wants you to succeed. Those who don't aren't the type of community members that really represents us. So no one is against you. A few have pointed out that your hubs may not comply with all the rules, or that the content isn't satisfactory or whatever. These critiques aren't to try to get you to go away, they are to try to help you make the corrections in your hubs you need to make in order to be successful.

    So read the rules, listen to what the experienced, pro-hubbers are saying redo your present hubs and then meet your goal. So it's going to be a little harder at first than you thought, but this may be a really great opportunity to hone your skills.

    I say go for it.

    Your hubs were not marked duplicate, they were moderated as substandard, because they do not contain any text, only one or two photos and one or two videos per hub.

        Maddie Ruudposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Sometimes, if we detect a pattern in most of someone's hubs, we moderate all their hubs at once.  You are free to resubmit any hubs you believe meet our standards, but be warned that repeatedly resubmitting hubs that are not within our rules will result in the banning of your account, so make sure you bring each hub into compliance before you hit that publish button.

        The hubpages system and indeed site is a writers site and is advertised as such, so maybe you just have to do some writing and then publish your hubs, make sure they are top notch before publishing them and simply move on to the next hubpage and the next!

      3. blondepoet profile image79
        blondepoetposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Hi richy all hubpages are asking you to do is edit your hubs and then they can be published again. You have to have words in a hub as if you don't then there is no story. Without no story then there is nothing to read. If people just want to watch videos they go to U Tube.
        I am sure you can find some great ways to improve them, and just think when they are published again, they are going to be 100 times better than what they were before.
        It is all trial and error and I really wish you good luck you seem a very smart man.

      4. darkside profile image80
        darksideposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Like I said in the other thread, I had a look at your hubs and they consisted of one stolen image (off of ShutterStock, they were still watermarked) and two youtube videos. I could produce 70 of them in one day, and they'd make me no money whatsoever.

        Not sure if you removed them or if HP HQ has flagged them, but here's a cache of these hubs:

        Money Much

        How to Ehow

        How to Steak

        How to Perfect

        Let me give you a tip, these are examples of substandard.

    Hello Richie,

    Why don't you answer my questions?
    Must be because you've been busy removing hubs, and changing your profile page.

    I see that the link to the webkinz site has disappeared from your profile, and has been replaced by a link to  http://necessitiesfortheworld.blogspot.com/

    Which contains articles on car insurance, mesothelioma, colon cleansing, and green tea.

    Truly a wonderful range of expertise you have.
    And it looks like many other sites have also stolen the content that you have worked so hard to produce for that site.

    Must be SO frustrating for you.

    We all have to work really hard here to make our hubs as best as we can.  Many of us have to keep revising our hubs to improve - especially if you are new (like me).  It is learning all the time.  Hubpages is not an easy ride for easy money.  Im not being rude, but anyone can publish blankish hubs with videos.  Pictures and videos are there to enhance the quality of the overall hub... it is the writing that makes it what it is!

    Good luck and try and string some good words together... its a steep learning curve but if you want a challenge then go for it!

      My tools and paint are sterile, so no raincoat needed - unless you want to prevent the world from seeing the painting results of course wink

        Didn't he start this thread? The thread that Eric has most humbly corrupted. (shhhh we can blame Eric as he is not here to defend his honour.I think he is still in the outhouse extracting the tuna and anchovy sandwich lodged in his throat.)

      Ah, this one! I sorta forgot about him. I do get carried away with a girl like you, ya know. wink

      And sure, we can blame everything on Eric - with two heads and one stuffed throat, who would believe him lol
