      Are they coppied content? If they're posted on other sites, it will show CC. Or are they adult content ? Porn?

      I am so sorry Moondive.
      I think it was because the English was poor but as you said its your second language.
      Isn't there anyone near you who can help you revise them? They were good informative hubs and no, they weren't copied.

      They unpublished one of mine but didn't give a specific reason. I just give up with them. They make no sense, their guidelines are totally subjective and without reason.

        Poppa, I'm sure we can help you work out what the problem was.  Or you can email the HubPages team and ask them to explain.

        Did you have more than two links to the same website?

        Did you use swear words?

        Were there any sex-related words, or any nude pictures?

              I can't help you much then. I  Understand a bit of Italian.
              Sent me the text of one of your hubs via e-mail and  maybe I can do something for you.

                OK its group therapy here!

                Send me one too - a different one from the others, and I'll see if I can correct what you have written (without changing it).

              Listen to haunty! This is a great place to improve your skills. You might even note at the top of your hubs that you are trying to improve your English and will be editing as you go, as you learn.

              People love to help, if you say, My English is not so good yet, but I am learning, people will help, instead of flag.

        2. Haunty profile image85
          Hauntyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          I thought of something along the lines of correcting your mistakes. Someone shouldn't stop writing just because their English is not perfect. I've seen people going from terrible to good English here on hubpages.

          But it's up to you to decide. You can mail me any time. smile

    It might help if you go to one of the major pen pal networks and converse with people regularly in English, it's how I spruced up my German last time I went traveling!

    Moondive,

    I'm sorry to hear about what's happened with your hubs. How many were there? I have a lot of experience with helping people for whom English is a second language with their writing. smile I do a lot of "translating" for some of my clients already.

    If you would like some help on this front, I would be glad to assist you with some of them smile Drop me an email if you'd like.

    And no worries! Don't get discouraged! Let this be a learning experience, and let's get your hubs back up!! smile

    I am happy to volunteer - if you want to send me a Hub or two, I will be happy to edit them for you. I know how difficult it is to write in a second language, so we will see if we can help you out smile

    EDIT: Thanks, Thoughtful Spot - I meant the English version - my Italian is not great smile

      Hey Sufi..How many languages do you speak?
      I'm impressed. smile

        Sufidreamerposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Hi Deborah,

        Not much to be impressed about, really - Apart from speaking conversational Greek, I can read French reasonably well and can read a little Italian and Spanish . As for speaking...no chance-I have no talent for languages sad

        moondive - just about to e-mail you. smile

          Deborah Sextonposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          You forgot English. So you speak two languages and read at least Five (I've included English and Greek to this). No that's nothing to be impressed about. smile

  7. ThoughtfulSpot profile image82
    ThoughtfulSpotposted 7 years ago

    I'll jump in to! Feel free to email me a hub, and I'll see what I can do.  I can't translate from Italian, but if you send me the English version, I'll see what I can do to assist w/ the grammar and syntax.

    I'm alright w/ writing in English, but writing online is like a whole other language to me... everyone here has been so kind to help w/ my questions... I'd love to "pay it forward" so to speak. smile

    All right!! We've got tons of helpful editors here! Moondive, I also forgot to specify that I'll need the English version of a hub.

    Also, you've got mail!

    You'll have all your hubs back before you know it smile

    ruanz3posted 7 years ago

    Im sorry about that, but i just heard of someone who deleted all their hubs by accident, and she had over 100 and over 200 followers! So at least that didnt happen to you smile

    1. TheGlassSpider profile image80
      TheGlassSpiderposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      *raises an eyebrow* How on EARTH does one "accidentally" delete all their Hubs? I thought you had to go and unpublish them one by one?

      1. relache profile image88
        relacheposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        If you are deleting them yourself, you do have to go one-by-one, so either this person had a prolonged fugue state involving delete buttons, or they wrote admin and asked to have the account shut down and then had an attack of remorse.

        Either way, I find it unlikely that anything so profound as the deletion or removeal of 100 hubs to be an accident.

        darksideposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        It's just now that I've noticed on the second page that several have asked the same question that came to my mind.

        Sometimes people unpublish their hubs and threaten to leave. Occasionally they get embarrassed at their own flouncey behaviour so I guess saying that they accidentally deleted them is the next step in a long list of lies.

        1. thisisoli profile image57

          Yeah I too smell bullshit on the accidentally deleting 100 hubs thing!

      IzzyMposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      The English wasn't that bad that we couldn't make it out...I think you had a lot of hubs didn't you? Something like 30?
      Send one or two to each of us here and we'll sort them in no time smile

    I am also willing to volunteer.  (English version)

    Several years ago in an English Comp class I had to read & respond to a classmates essays where English was her second language.  Her first was Korean!  It wasn't easy, but when you speak English as a first language you learn to understand what is being said through a foreign language.

  13. IzzyM profile image88
    IzzyMposted 7 years ago

    Moondive if you're wondering how to send the hubs, just copy/paste the text box contents into an email and send one to each of us.
    Open up our profiles, and just under our photos is a contact button. Hit that and it opens an email form and copy/paste the stuff in there.
    We'll correct them and send them straight back via email. Then all you have to do is copy/paste the corrected work back into capsules.

      thisisoliposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      To be honest Moondive I think the hubpages team removed your hubs because they saw your new picture and needed a reason to talk to you wink tongue

  16. IzzyM profile image88
    IzzyMposted 7 years ago

    I haven't deleted a hub...yet!
    What I wonder is, if you accidentally hit the delete button, does it delete immediately, or does it first ask you "Are you sure you want to delete this hub?"

        Hi all! I jump in here because I received comments to my hubs and comments, that my English would be poor. I know it is not perfect, but I can say  what I want to express and I believe it is understandable. English is my  third language. I think that people complain about my poor English, because they don't want to understand what I am writing, because I don't write what people want to hear. Can you please read some of my hubs and comments and tell me frankly what you think. There are very few comments to my hubs, so maybe you can write there... That would be of great help. Thank you!
