I have two hubs of mine which are framed as Duplicates and unpublished. The reason is that I had similar content on a different writing forum. Has this happened with anyone else? If the content on the writing forum is the same as I posted here and since I have posted it, there is no copyright issue. So I am confused.
It doesn't matter if you own the copyright to the content. If something is available elsewhere - on another site, even your own - it can not be published on HubPages. HubPages only accepts writing that is unique to HubPages (i.e. not reprinted elsewhere).
You may have to read up the info on the FAQ's section... to be aware o the rules of this site
http://hubpages.com/faq/#duplicate_content here is a link that points to the problem but it would help to know more about the site when you work here.

I've received a warning on one of my articles that much of it is duplicated on another site. I then remembered that I had it posted 1.5 years ago on a site for writers, but not a blog kind. I hadn't visited that site...
