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.
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.
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. 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 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!!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Moondive - I haven't gotten anything from you yet either. You can use the contact on my profile to email me one. I'm home w/ my boys today, and won't have a lot of freetime, but, I should have a minute on lunch break at work tomorrow, and would be happy to look it over then.
I'm sorry if this post offends anybody, but I am really getting tired of people who basically are non English speakers showing up, throwing a hub together without expending any effort to read the forums or the learning...
Hi,I am a budding writer but need some good pointers and tips from my hub friends so that I can improve my writing skills. Any feedback in that context would be greatly appreciated.Thanking you,Ruchira
I am preparing my 100th hub, and for that I want to review 100 hubs written by other Hubbers. Please post links to hubs - your own or those of others - that you would want me to include. One link per post, please. I...
There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the...
Is hubpages in danger of being over-run by writers from India who can't write proper English? I went to a hubpages question yesterday, and half the answers were from Indian hubbers who didn't understand the question but...
