Do Hub Pages provide a Hub check facility before a Hubber posts a Hub? Can it be shown in the pre publish Hub Capsule?
Good to see you, MP50. I was getting a little concerned. How are you???
I am fine thank you my far away friend...how are you?
If you're creating a hub and you put something into the hub that violates specific rules, then it will be instantly flagged by the filter. You can see that on the right hand side of your hub while in edit mode.
Some of the things the filter doesn't catch will most likely be caught by readers.
To answer your question (with difficulty as we are in the middle of a power cut and I can't actually see the keyboard very well), the automatic filter doesn't kick in until AFTER you have published.
So if you have quoted something you will not know until after you publish if you are overused the quotes or not.
Happened to me. I published a hub that contained outside material, but I also wrote a LOT of fresh content too - about 700 words fresh.
I hung off publishing to see if any warnings came on, and they didn't. So I published.
That hub lasted about 20 minutes tops before the filter kicked in and unpublished it.
Just so you know.
or you can have a friend be a second set of eyes
I'll mention this again.
I had to quote a lot of text recently. Fearing it might be too much, I used my favorite Mac screenshot tool (Skitch) to take pictures of the text instead. Big quote, no conflict..
Hello MP50, I have been bumbarged by hubs from people I never had contact with and one of them I reported and lookd her up and she or he has been banned. yet today I get another fan mail. I have no idea where to take this if you happen to know something I don't please advice.
What do you mean by hub checker? Are you referring to spell check or something else?
There is an automatic content filter which will flag your hub if it's got obvious things like bad words, overly promotional linking etc.
However for things that can't be easily tracked, only if it's brought to a moderator's attention will it be manually checked.
It's your responsibility to know the site rules. Check in the help section.
