Display IP Address of Hubbers Posting in Forum

    shinujohn2008posted 8 years ago

    I have come across many hubbers who are using Multiple user ids to create Hubs and Post in forums.

    Many people are using Multiple user ids to Argue Against or Support a Thread. I have found out many Profiles in Hub pages, which have the Same Adsense Publisher Id.

    If IP address is displayed along with forum posts, we can also avoid those users,who have Multiple User ids and using Different adsense publisher ids in them.

      My, we are snippy today. Many more comments like that and I would expect you will not be liking the "prompt action." lol

      so what if people have more than one account, it is not against the hubpages policy, as for the adsense ID you may have clicked when a refferers ad id was being displayed.....jimmy

          I don't know whether it is so much a matter of liking them as accepting the inevitable. Preventing them can be very difficult unless you have many staff members.

    You should have been really really really irritated if you bothered to spend your time on checking their IDs yikes

    As for the suggestion - I personally don't see any real benefit in it. And no, I use only one account on Hubpages.

    Also, saying "Expecting Prompt action at the earliest." is impolite, at the least. Hubpages staff are NOT on your payroll, if you did not realize this yet, and you have no right to dictate what they should and what they should not do.

    From what I've seen, multiple ID's won't do them much good. Hubpages does a great job of keeping the spam hubs out, or at least marginalised.

    The forums seem to be a different issue...

    Forum is not a war field where you need allies to fight an issue. If hubbers like your suggestions, they will support you otherwise they have full right to oppose. There is no restriction if a hubber writes using different names or different hubbers use same adsense Id. Moreover, if a hubber is able to maintain good hubber scores for different user id's, it shows that hubber is really an expert hubber.

    As long as it`s not against any of the Hubpage`s rules, I totally agree on having 2 or more different accounts. Who cares for those that use different accounts to comment on this forum? And what is the purpose ? They may do whatever they like. I hope no one, and as Misha said earlier - nobody should bother, it`s just a waste of time.

    "These people are just trying to manipulate and support some of their fellow hubbers"

    Is this a battle field ?

    I for one don't like sock puppet action, but I don't think it appropriate that anyone who comes into the forum (whether member or general public) can see everyone's IP address.

    Sure, if I post in your comments, you will see my IP address. But that is far more private than displaying it for the world to see.

    The forum admin will be able to see IP addresses anyway. I'd hope that if they see sockpuppet action that they take appropriate action. In their own good time of course big_smile

      I have always suspected that you are not really  a small dark horse.

      But one of the lovely things about hubpages is that people can present themselves however they wish to be recognized.... or not recognized.

        You know, Maddie, I would personally agree with you but Jung (that's what we call him) says it isn't so.

        What are you going to do? When one of your personalities sulks it really sucks for the rest of us.

    Oh Dang. Using proxies all the time becomes such a drag. ;-)

    I have meant to ask if it was considered ok to use more than the one Hubber ID. It seems to me to be fine if one is using them the way a serious writer may use pseudonoms to write pot-boilers.

    What say that I want to cover some very serious topics, but would also like to do some more gossipy and more lucrative hubs about film starlets, say? Using a different name for each seems legitimate to me. In fact this is something I would actually like to do, and welcome an official comment. I would not want to hide the second name from other hubbers or from the HubPages administration.

    1. Misha profile image76
      Mishaposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Yeah, it is allowed here to have more than one account. I personally don't - I just want to use all SEO benefits that I have on my profile already.

  11. Shadesbreath profile image89
    Shadesbreathposted 8 years ago

    I have to say, having another name would probably be good for me.  I think writing the more researched hubs that sometimes I feel like doing ruins my credibility as a sarcastic, A-hole and will run off potential readers who will be dissapointed by dry material.

    However, it does seem like I read something when I signed up that asked that you only make one name.  Could be wrong though, I was probably pretty deep into a six pack when I signed up for this thing.

    Creating multiple accounts to argue a point sounds boring.  Let them have their fun if they want to do that.

  13. Inspirepub profile image85
    Inspirepubposted 8 years ago

    I don't think there is any problem with running multiple accounts under pen-names, Shadesbreath. If you wind up arguing with yourself or agreeing with yourself in the forums under your multiple log-ins, I think that's less about pen-names and more about not having a life.

    You can have more than one account.  I know personally of a couple of people who do, it's allowed. 

    Only one AdSense account tho, so just use your number for the second account, too.

    Do you ever moderate comments on obzokee? wink

      Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      No, it's not my blog.  I'm just a regular contributing guest blogger.

      I do wish the entries didn't look like Chris wrote them.  You don't see the author's names unless you scroll or read down to the bottom of the article.

      Why?  And thanks.  smile

      I just went and looked again - I've only done 2 so far - I didn't see one from you, Misha.  I'll poke around a bit, see if I can figure out where you went.

    Shirley Andersonposted 8 years ago

    I'm sorry Misha, but I can't find it anywhere.  I wonder if he hasn't moderated it yet, I'll have to email him and ask.

    While I was there, I left comments addressing the nice folks that left comments for me.  I'm going to have to keep an eye on that.

    I'm glad you told me, I wonder how many times it's happened.

    Sorry Misha, and thanks!

      Spam?  No....I didn't find you at all.  Dagnabit!  I'm going to get to the bottom of this, it's bugging me.

      I can't approve comments, I have no access to the blog.  I just email my entries to the owner.  I'll let you know what I find out, but I won't hear back from him before tomorrow.

    Still debating the two account thing for the sake of humor. I just wish I knew how to do SEO tricks for the researched hubs I write.  I try to read on it but it's always so long and dry and my eyes roll up into my head and, well... there you go.  lol.

  22. Inspirepub profile image85

    If you choose the right topics, and have 4%-5% of the words on the page being the keyword phrase, including having it in the title and the page summary text, you have done 90% of what you can do on the page.

    Other than that, it's all about getting links to your Hub anchored with the keyword phrase.

    I had to chuckle - you spelled your name, "Ho to Speeding Ticket".

    Please don't ask me what that means in English.

    I left you a comment back, hopefully it's approved right away so you can read it.

    Thx again, Misha.

      I don't mind....as long as they explain it in plain English first so we can get the basic concept down.
