Please can we have a 'rules' page that we can access by simply clicking on a link on our 'my account' page?
Not everyone knows the old rules ~ and the new ones are a mystery to many of us. They arrive on the forum ~ different areas, sometimes, I think ~ in dribs and drabs, and can easily be missed.
It is assumed that we will all know and understand them ~ but we don't, so we don't always understand the e-mails of complaint when we violate terms of service.
By the way, the TOS page is not a quick and easy read, so it does not take the place of a simple and straightforward 'RULES' page.
If there is one, already, please let me know how to find it. thanks :
The Help is a River of information and just about every topic is covered there, but don't feel bad, I asked the same question about a week ago not realizing what was there. When I actually looked I felt a little foolish.
The rules are changing rapidly in order to improve HP's status since the recent updates to the Google algorithm (known as the Panda Updates). We are all in this together and the requirements are just being discovered by all of us as we continue to adjust, change and improve our Hubs. HP defines new rules as the requirements are construed.
Google doesn't give definite clues as to what we need to do. If they did then spammers would "game" the system as they have been doing in the past. We are at the point in time when this comes to an end. In the interm, some of us will suffer. But if we work at keeping up with the changes, those of us that do...should survive.
With that said, let me mention that Simone Smith posted Recent HubPages Changes - Answers to the Forum Concerns Here in the Official HubPages Announcements. That should help.

We are always reading the forums, taking feedback and working behind the scenes. Sometimes Google prefers that we keep some information private if they plan on making a formal announcement. We are expecting...
