I had a couple hubs flagged as duplicate. It is my own work, I thought I had revised it good enough. Guess not. Today I rewrote the 2 hubs again and edited them here. I am curious to know how long will it take for the duplicate flag to go away once resubmitted and passed?
Two out of the three I posted have that too! I only got here yesterday! The work is mine, but is also on my Wordpress blog, is that the problem?
If you are confident your re-write fixed the duplicate issue - you may have to email the hubpages team and ask them to review your changes and remove the notice, I'm not sure it automatically disappears.
also, if you have done revisions on a flagged hub and resubmitted it, it could take a few days for it to be checked and okayed. If it has been given the go ahead the flag should be gone. check your email for stuff from the hubteam about the issue. And others cant see the flags, only you.
its not really a rewriting issue, its whether or not the work is already on the web elsewhere.
here's what the help sect says--
"You are allowed to post content on HubPages that is also published elsewhere, like your own site or blog—but you may not place any promotional links on that Hub. Your Hub may also be moderated for duplicate content in cases where we determine there is substantial similarity to another work. This includes close paraphrasing, among other forms of misappropriation or copying of content."

I know hubpages prohibits writers from having duplicate content. My problem is understanding what that exactly means. I heard from many that it means writers can't publish content here that already exists elsewhere, but...
