is there a reason that I can't publish an article that I have written elsewhere? I'm considering taking it down from the other site but it has a really good ranking there.
If I can prove that the article is mine, will I be allowed to publish it then or am I being naive?
No. Duplicate content is not allowed on Hubpages now. Though you are the original author, when it is republished, it becomes duplicate content. You can write a new and different article on the same topic and publish here.
Thank you (and sorry) - a little bit more digging on my part would have cleared that up.

I check with 3 different duplicated content checkers one said 98% original the other one said 93% original then the last one said original content. Should I just resubmit my article?
