I typed the word in the Search box first to see if there was a thread already about it, but didn't find one. I assume whatever is tagged with this means no chance for republishing or something like that.
I'd say it's new. I'm not seeing any sort of official announcement or description yet, so it must be really, really new.
According to dictionary.com, "irrevocable" means "Not able to be changed, reversed, or recovered; final." Sounds like admin has created some sort of hub classification that can't be changed or altered once it's applied to a Hub. Looks like moderation is about to get really serious.
I bet we get an announcement/explanation later today.
This icon is, indeed, new. Good eyes, Michael Willis!
Certain rules violations (like the spamming/abuse of other sites to obtain sketchy backlinks for your Hub) have always been "irrevocable," meaning that the Hub cannot be brought into compliance and will never be republished. Now, it's just part of the software, making the mod team's job easier.
This change is part of a wider effort to improve the flagging/moderating process easier for both users and staff, in terms of clarity.
Are you going OK with the flagging Maddie? I have been flagging them in the hope that if hubpages can be sans junk, Mrs Google will love us again.... I took a bit of a hit on my figures, I want them back!
I am always grateful when users take the time to flag low-quality and spammy content. Also, soon, as a part of the changes I mentioned above, we'll have a more specific flagging system that I think will make things a lot easier for all of us.
What if it is geared towards a hub that has been flagged as spam. They could mark it a irrevocable meaning the hub can not come back into population with the original url or resubmitted for review. basically its toast.
What gives. I had a half dozen buying used cars at auction hubs running for months and suddenly they are all flagged "Needs Revision" due to links, which BTW were links to/from each hub page so the domains in...
Dear sir, madam,I was surprised seeing all my hubs a year go have a noticestating it should be revised before it can be published. Would you please advised about what is the reason about this?Thank you so much,Best...
I have a green comments button next to my profile picture at the moment which when I click on it in the usual manner to respond takes me to a page where I can't see the comment to respond to it. Is anyone else...
