    Dear sir, madam,
    I was surprised seeing all my hubs a year go have a notice
    stating 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 regards,
    Jackie56

      All of your hubs contained content that you copied from other sites. That's a big no-no here at HubPages.

        Oh but they forgot to tell you the hubpage idiots only go after certain people that copy stuff, yet they let others do it all the time and they even feature it. WHAT A BIG JOKE HUB PAGES HAS BECOME

          I think what's happening here is that their system isn't very good at ferreting out dupe content. That leaves it up to the unlucky hubbers who are HubHopping and a handful of moderators to wade through the 3,000+ hubs per day being published and the gazillion out there that have been published over the past four years. Some people are getting called on dupe content and others have managed to fly under the radar.

          I agree it's not fair, but I also don't believe there's bias going on either.

          Sooner rather than later, that stuff will be picked up with their automatic filtering. If you see it you can speed along the process by flagging it if you feel that passionate about it.

          Well maybe not but I think the HP owners CAN see a 'featured' hub, up there plain as day.    Hmmmmmmm.

    Have one like Jackie56, and: Not the same thing--only started 3-4 mos ago: why is everything I've pub'd marked "edit" in black and at the bottom of my accts pg it says "irrevocable" (I think) in black. That's new. Can someone help both of us at once? (Thanks, J56)

      darksideposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      This will be interesting. I just noticed the "irrevocable" at the bottom too, though none of my hubs are marked as such.

      If it means what I think it means, then there is no chance of republishing the hub again.

      Uninvited Writerposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      If all your hubs are blacked out that means they can't be fixed, the icon at the bottom appears on every hubbers page in the legend. There is also an edit button beside everyone's hub so you can edit your hub...

    Read this link and as much as you can of the following thread.  There have been many discussions about the topic since then in the forums, and if you run a search using terms like "irrevocable," you may be able to find some of what you are looking for.  Hope you get the answers you need!

    Jackie56, didn't you receive an email from Hubpages saying why your hubs needed revision?  I had a couple of mine unpublished as well, and I received an email from Hubpages stating why my hubs were taken down.  If you didn't receive a notification, email Hubpages and ask why.  Go to this page to send your email.  I wish you luck.

      Nope. I'm telling you -- she's a content thief. One of her hubs was in the hopper yesterday. I flagged her, and I'm sure other people did too. She just managed to get away with it until now.

        Hooray! Glad to see positive proof that hub hopping has an impact.

        I'm still annoyed that more than a year ago I flagged a hub, which consisted of extracts from a Wikipedia article. Nothing ever happened, the hub is still there, and the author has a high score.

              I'll betcha they don't take that down. Only one or two sentences is dupe, and it's just a hair over 250 words. There are some spelling issues, but not enough to make the hub unreadable. (BTW, almost every site has a percentage they allow -- usually 15% or less -- of dupe content. I don't know what HP's limit is though.)

              I think the whole think is a hilarious satire, and the author is probably some stick-thin guy, like Mark Ewbie. Did you read the profile? Too funny!!! I'd read more!

                I love that profile!! Best ever.  And the hub has promise...

                Just goes to show the perils of being a moderator.

                "I'll get you with my grabber".  Brilliant.

    Thanks for info to J56 (therefore, me, too). Re "blacked out" I'm w/out my own computer for a while and having to use a Mac desktop which is somewhat limited--esp on HP, I think. There's no way I can do a word check, but pretty sure all at least 50 wds. No emails re anything wrong. I did check out the copyright area and chose one, but it doesn't appear on pub'd hubs and not sure how to attach--Could that be a reason the "irrevocable" is blackened? Hubs not unpub'd, no warnings, just that 'edit' button next to each blackened like the irrevocable. darkside, thank you, I hadn't thought of that but your comment is what reminded me of the cprt. Didn't think it applied unless showed. Aficionada, I tried going to that link when read your answer; can't get there from here now, but will definitely check later. Only couple of hubs are from others, and full attribution is made (as in my "why did I keep it?" series.

    1. wilderness profile image95
      wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      If (and it's a big IF) I read your post right, you have copied articles from somewhere else.  If so, it will not be allowed on HP regardless of any attribution.

      If the article was actually written by someone else and copied without their specific permission it is also theft whether attributed or not and is both illegal and unethical in the extreme.  It is one thing to copy a phrase or two with attribution and quite another to copy an article.

      I might suggest as well that some of your hubs are mis-categorized, or may be found that way by moderators.  I suspect that your series on daydreams should be in the poetry category, not health, and that HP will demand that.

        Teylinaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        Thank you so much, wilderness! Just glad the first two paras don't apply to me! Miscategorization could definitely be my problem, however; got enough trouble trying to figure out everything else! I've got to admit I have trouble categorizing; often, I can't find or not sure what I want.

        1. wilderness profile image95
          wildernessposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Good!  I wasn't sure from your earlier post whether you had copied or not.  Many people think it is all right to copy material and re-post - in another thread I reported where a webmaster told us all that everything on the web was free for any use we wanted and that we did not have a copyright on our content.  Not true, but some do have that misconception.

          And yes, categorizing is a problem for me, too.  I often just don't know where to put something.  Many hubs are easy, but some are from that.

          Re-reading your post, in reference to the 50 word length.  I believe you may be confusing a requirement that each amazon product link (link, not capsule) must have 50 words of text somewhere to balance it.  Total text on a hub should be at least 300 words, except perhaps for poetry, and that is pretty minimal.  Although many will disagree, nearly all of my own non-sales hubs are over 1000 words total.

    Irrevocable means that no matter what you do to that hub, it will not be republished.  The decision by the moderators is irrevocable.

    1. Teylina profile image60
      Teylinaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Even if it's still pub'd? In other words, if I need to change the title or find a typo, I cannot edit and republish? It must stay pub'd as is. Right? Horrors!

  7. Mark Ewbie profile image82
    Mark Ewbieposted 5 years ago

    I thought irrevocable could also mean dodgy linking?  Not just for copied stuff but other goings on?

    Might be that HP could choose a better word, because it's not one I use in daily life.  How about Terminated?

    1. Rosie2010 profile image83
      Rosie2010posted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Mark, you use "terminated" in daily life?  I use "Dead" .. maybe one word might not be enough.. maybe a whole sentence like "THIS HUB IS DEAD. NO AMOUNT OF RESUSCITATION CAN MAKE IT COME ALIVE AGAIN.  DEAD, DEAD, DEAD!"  How's that? big_smile big_smile big_smile

    2. Teylina profile image60
      Teylinaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Rosie, I like you! But if it's dead, why is it still published? Also,  has nothing to do with copied stuff. I haven't done that except on two shorts w/explanation about why using and definite credit. My hubs are all originals and still marked that way and published! I'm confused. If they're dead, don't they come off? Doesn't there have to be a reason to kill 'em?

        Sorry Teylina, I wasn't making fun of you.  Ok, let's see.. it shows you have 14 hubs published.  Did you have more than 14 hubs before?  Because if we can read them all, that means all your hubs are published and they are ok.

          Teylinaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Rosie, please make fun! I'm the 1st to admit I should be the brunt of a joke! No, all are still pub'd, and the  one I am working on is still showing as in the edit stage, unpub'd.  That's why I'm baffled, because all can be read. Anyway, don't waste your time reading all mine--believe me, they are all there, and I have no doubt that some day, some way, all will work out. Thanks for checking out and answering. All of you have been so helpful. I've been out of town w/mother for few days and just getting back on. Hey, as long as they're not "dead" as in UNpub'd, I'm happy!

    OK seriously just read doublewide69's profile and hub and I can't stop laughing.  I would say I want a grabber, but that just doesn't sound right at all.  Anyway people need to stop copying other writers WORK because it really is time consuming to get it deleted and it really pisses me off. Sorry 2 in the last two weeks and they never go for the ones that are on pg 4 nooooooo it has to be #1 or 2

    The good news is with all the changes I have two articles that I haven't done crap with in over a year because they were in never never land (to buried in pages to bother with) that are now on the first page. Holy guacamole

    Thanks DW69 I think you may have cured my writers block

  9. Teylina profile image60
    Teylinaposted 5 years ago

    I should never have asked my question thru another! OK. To me, irrevocable means it cannot be changed. Yet those same hub are blacked as "edit" to the left. If irrevocable means "dead," which is also logical, why are they still published? I DO NOT COPY OTHER PEOPLE'S WORK!!!!! Certainly not other hubbers! The only copying I've done are under the title, "Why Did I Keep It?" referring to something someone did, and to whom I gave credit, but was a sharing of something, to me, unusual. Am I just stupid or misunderstanding or, as always, technologically-challenged?!?

    1. lakeerieartists profile image78
      lakeerieartistsposted 5 years ago in reply to this

      Okay, I don't know what you are referring to, but these are questions that can only be answered by the Hubpages team.  No one in the forums can answer them.

      If your hub is marked irrevocable, then it has been unpublished, and cannot be republished.  That decision has been made by the moderators.

      There is more than one reason that hubs get unpublished.  You need to read the TOS to understand what is permissible on this site.

        Teylinaposted 5 years ago in reply to this

        lakeerieartists, I fully appreciate your answer. I do understand there is more than one reason the team decides to unpublish something, but that is what baffles me. None of mine have beenl. I read the TOS and have followed. I like your saying the team has to explain. I won't bother fellow hubbers any more w/questions I'm lost on, no matter where I look. THNX!

          Rosie2010posted 5 years ago in reply to this

          Teylina, all your hubs are ok.  The "edit" sign to the left are there so that if you want to edit your hub, you can click on that edit sign.  All our hubs in our account page have the edit sign.  It does not mean you need to edit your hubs.  All your hubs are ok.

              You're welcome, Teylina.  lol you are not "challenged".. there are some things that new hubbers find confusing.  I was also confused when I first started.  So keep on writing and edit as you please.  I, too, edit my hubs a lot as many times I see typos after publishing.  Have fun!
