Please point this out in the rules? HubPages team says, people can have more than one account.
It offers people the opportunity to dedicate one to a specific niche market, without any connection to their other work. This comes in handy should you want to write as someone else. There are many authors, who don't use their real-life names, on their work and it's not because they are worried about what others think of them. They simple use one literary tool "ghost writing" at their disposal.
Do you think anyone with multiple identities ever leaves a comment on one of their own hubs?
I think you can have more than one id. here because of the message that comes up when you sign out. Also there might be more than one person in a house writing for HubPages so the same computer would be used.
I only have one identity but here is what you would see from my ip address.
AEvans that is me!!! The one and only me, nobody else not another human being they broke the mold. lololo
WhiteOrchids: My sister, right now her computer is down so she comes to our home to write,but she is not on often.
Glstngrosepetals: My sister's friend who stays with us also has an account with HP hopefully she will get on her feet SOON and move, but in the meantime she writes.
Honestly I will be happy when everyone detaches themselves from me, lololo. I would like to get back to normal and there is nothing like commenting on someone's hub and they think there is more then one of you. We have 3 computers and I am so kind to allow others to use two of them, however the laptop there is no way anyone will touch my golden keys! lololo
Multiple accounts would seem to make sense if one is writing in completely isolated niches, for example say witchcraft and or Wicca practices for one and say, industrialism for the other. There does not seem to be much crossover.
But again than my hubs are all over the place, from Politics to the Holidays to Humor to Tourist info, under just one account.
So who is to say what’s best, I'm still trying to figure the whole thing out. I just keep experimenting.
I guess one other reason is to help mask profitable niches for hubs. I.e. If a hubber stated in the forum that they are earning so much from their hubs and have hundreds of fans. People can see what hubs they have written and try to copy that niche area, where as if you have published your profitable hubs under a different identity with a lower profile it makes it harder for others to copy them.
I guess youre right but personally for the sake of a few cents extra ,I dont think it would be that profitable certainly not for me....Goggle on the other hand would require you only yo have one account
believe it or not - This is my more serious identity - mega1 - even though it may not appear that I'm all that serious. My really comedic persona is SoftCornHippo who talks kinda funny and writes about girl stuff and funny thoughts she has. I haven't written much for SoftCorn lately, have concentrated on mega1 - I can see that if you are a pro writer having an outlet for your silly side that doesn't show up on your serious blogs is probably not a bad idea. So now you all know! This is the first time I've told you all about SoftCorn - hope you like her!
What puzzles me is that people who have been banned from the forums can go ahead and quite openly post to the forums under a different alias, even declaring who they are. Doesn't make sense to me, why does HubPages permit this. They should be able to stop it by going after the IP address and by using automated detection. Only relying upon users to complain is not effective. Does HubPages really want to keep these people out?
Oh when HP gets wind of this they get banned for another time period - some permanently. And if they keep it up they get banned from writing hubs and their account is closed - not just from participating in the forum.
The first forum ban is 3 days. It grows in increments to 30 days. A forum ban can progress into a full ban from HP with account being closed.
If you are a spammer with no hubs, I think it goes right to banned on all levels. If you've got a track record and just bliew it once, then I think they give you more chances. But there is a limit to chances.
My point exactly. I have to admit that I'm having difficulties when it seems that rules are not consistently enforced. If there is no transparency and equality, it is difficult to figure out what is going on.
Hi everyone. I cover many geeky topics, like Pokemon, Star Wars, all that fun stuff. Sometimes I wonder if readers would be better served by multiple accounts, one per topic, so that they can quickly find what they want...
Well I would like to have two seperate Hubpages Accounts on hubpages. One would be specific to a topic and a second would be about different stuff. I was wondering if this is aloud, and also if you can link both...
I've always wondered why some Hubbers have more than one account. Is this a good thing or not? The only thing I can think of is that after a person writes many Hubs, it becomes a chore to take care of that...
Is it okay to have multiple accounts in hubpages, about three mine, that of my special someone and A ghost account (will do the hatchet job for me hehehhe)and integrate all of them in just one google adsense account...
