What do you think about it?
Personally, I've had a hard time with the change of definition for what is similar content: We may "not Publish Hubs or Hub Content that are identical to, substantially similar to, or derived from other Hubs." My niche is showing the difference and similarities between personality types, so it is hard to show the similarities in completely different wording each time. Therefore, I've given up writing anything more about the individual personality types in an analytical way, since the important consistency in terminology is labeled as content that is too similar.
Is there something in particular about the changes you are concerned about?
I agree with what they are saying, it's a form of plagurism that is relatively easy for hubpages to control (compared to other websites). However someone probably has written something similar to you at some point, so that is where a problem arises.
I never copy anything for my hubs, I just research off the internet and then explain what I have learnt.
In all I think that this change is good, however it needs a common sense approach because some common subjects will have similar hubs without breaking any rules.
Luckily I'm a teenager so have quite a unique writing style so I hopefully won't have that problem.
I was wondering the same thing. His profile says "16"...
Well, that's too young to be here. I've flagged the profile for the underage.
May I just ask why you seem so negative towards me?
I'm trying to write to the best quality I can, I'm trying to do something to further my learning and help me improve my essay writing, and hopefully give people something interesting to read.
I think no matter the age...a writer is going to bring their own particular style to the game. As for needing to be 18...you need to be 18. I noticed that your profile page says that you are now...18? Good luck in all your writing here...or here in two years...or anywhere. Brittany is right about needing to read TOS stuff.

Apparently there are those who do not know what plagerism is! But I am sure they know that copying, pasting, maybe spinning an article written by another is not "Original Content." Plagerism is...

Looks like Google made another algo change earlier this week. My traffic rose about 25% on my main HP account around this time, so I'm guessing the update was the cause. My traffic is still low by historical...

Does anyone know how i can drive massive traffic to my hubpage? I see people pages ranking high at yahoo, google and msn but mine can get there. Any help from fellow hub fellows?Thanks.

Just curious ... You can apparently flag a hub for being "low quality" if it is "purely personal." I've seen a lot of content on here that (to me) seems purely personal, but I haven't flagged it...

I am really not liking the front page of Hubpages these days. When I first click in to HP, I see a list of the five top questions and articles. It usually something about politics or beliefs. First of all, is that what...
