All these forums you are posting, would be better in a hub. If you thought that is what you are doing it is not.
You will see the words
Start a new Hub
at the top of the screen click on that and that is where you can put all this information.
I had a look at that user appears to have two hubs. Have been reporting the threads as spam.
Yep, noticed that while reporting his profile.
Yes I saw this also, but he is not putting any links in the threads so I looked at it as more of he thinks he is writing a hub.
but maybe he is spamming, who knows.
If he is spamming he is doing a poor job at it.
I've just come to the conclusion that it's better to report than not to report.
Basically if something gives me that 'spammy feeling' I just hit report and figure that the mods or maddie would be a better judge, instead of trying to second guess the whys and hows....
I am not Shewana, but still opened this thread. How can I do this!
I started to reply to one of them with the same message, i.e. this info would be better as a Hub. As soon as I clicked Submit, I saw that the thread was Closed to Reply. I took that to mean that Shewawa had been reported and already investigated and "found wanting."
Also, when I checked his/her profile, I saw that the forum threads had been opened about 1-2 minutes apart. That seems more like spam than like attempts at posting Hubs. I mean, if this person has actually published one Hub, then they know how to do that correctly already - right?
You would think so, wouldn't you.
But I never saw spammers who didn't put links in somewhere. lol
Whatever all I know is it's was getting annoying. ha ha
Annoying? Is it EVER!
First it was a front page full of health-related stuff, now finance. I did read one of the health ones and, if it was original it was worth putting into a Hub. But I just have my doubts that anyone who has successfully made 1-2 Hubs would waste so much time putting these articles into forum threads. On the other hand, why do it at all - without a link? Maybe it's just an attempt to drive traffic to his profile. I hope shewawa learns there are better ways of doing that!
I hope so too.
Yes but it says he has been here 2 months so he could have made those two hubs a couple of months ago and just forgot how.
In any case between this forum and people reporting him he appears to have stopped. Let hope so anyway. lol
The information he posted on Adsense referrals is terribly dated, and I'm guessing that most, if not all, the content of the posts has been scraped from elsewhere.
I bet if you look on his profile later either he will have published a whole bunch of hubs really fast or hubpages will have taken his profile down altogether.

I like the new Topic page design - but is it possible to have that for hubs only. Then have the feed page for forums, Q&A, and Status. I think that would be a very good way to showcase hubs more prominently and keep...

My main/current profile has a plethora of topics. I have finally chosen my niche (knitting). I do have hubs with this niche - some of which are doing very well. I was thinking about creating a new profile that is...

Hi,Hi,I keep getting the message that my hubs could be featured, but no matter how often I change them, they never are. I keep getting told that they may contain "spammy elements" but I'm not sure what these...

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come...

My profile description is pretty brief--with just some of my background and interests. Is it important to put qualifications such as education, degrees, former and current jobs? Is it helpful to put more personal...

Earlier this morning I created a thread on the Hub Makeover forum, because I had emailed Team HubPages and hadn't had a response. Jason eventually responded and told me what I already knew, that the Hub had...
