All my hubs are marked for revision.
Earlier this morning I received alerts for few hubs and then all of them were unpublished.
I send message to hub support. I didn't receive any notifications or instructions what should I do. I never had any troubles before. I even used "Check for Violations Now" tool, and everything seemed to be okay. I tried to publish new content, but that content is also held.
Now, I don't understand why my older hubs- which don't have any links but internal hubpages links - are also frozen. And I don't understand why the hubpages team gave me links to example hubs which are not connected to my niche at all, have a few sentences, some big pictures from pastry topic or whatever and I think one of the hubs was enough boring to sleep in a raging baby dragon? Also, I got alert that my content is short an poorly written- but the alert was for the hubs which are pretty long and have no grammar issues. Maybe I miss an apostrophe or question mark somewhere?
I have read somewhere in your forum that this can be because I'm not US citizen. Is that true?
If that's a case than I think hubpages should make a statement in the beginning of sign up process - something like "We don't allow members from anywhere but US." That would be very helpful for us, Europe folks. We're very blunt. Also, it's very blunt to gather AdSense impressions trough my low quality and substandard writing, than freeze it and keep the traffic count for yourself.
It'll be really nice is you explain me what kind of moral model you use to explain this to my obviously pissed logic.
I doubt it has anything to do with your country of origin. There are lots of hubbers from outside the U.S. on here.
I looked over some of your cached hubs, the language is very very choppy. The biggest problem I see is with article usage.
This might help: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/540/01/
you wrote on here and forgot to use article....
*Shrugs* Or you could just blow off the suggestions of everyone who hasn't been moderated and assume that it is some sort of personal vendetta. I was trying to help, but I guess I'm done here. Good luck with that whole getting your hubs republished thing.
Sorry, I wasn't trying to make you uncomfortable or start any flaming discussion. You have to understand this is not a source of my income at all, this is only hobby writing. The only thing that agitates me is that the whole thing doesn't make any logic. I was interested to hear suggestions from the members who had the same or similar problem. I got my answer from IzzyM. It was very nice of you to provide that link. Thank you.
I found cached copies of one of your hubs. Even if it is your own you can't republish them here if they still appear online.

And believe me, Hubpages accepts writers from all over the world. You might have some removed because your English at times seems awkward.
The Twitter one might have been deemed too personal. If you open each hub it should tell you at the top what the issue is.
I'm sending my messages to contact support the whole day.The message on my hubs and received inbox messages says:
But I didn't receive any notifications for 8 full months. They didn't have any filters for AN, THE and As (article usage) so long? And I don't believe that little mistakes can put you in delete category. I saw worse hubs, and I saw really short ones made only from few sentences, videos and loads of pictures.
Please define "choppy". How should I make tutorials? Should I write an encyclopedia? The example hub they refer for the best source had 5 sentences. The pdf resource page you mention didn't appear on hubpages violation form or any daily report check I run every time I published my hubs.
I agree that hubpages accept writers from all over the world, but I'm also convinced it KEEPS only local. I didn't see any local member had any problem, heard about it or find anything about it on your and any other forum.
The linking to external sites is another thing. If that is an issue- than why not make a filter to deal with it.I don't think it's such a big trouble for hubpages to limit links.
I'm not eager to publish here if they are going to freeze everything I got because 5 of my hubs are substandard. And I would not waste my entire day to republish everything.
I need correct and direct answer from the team. What have I done on every hub that cause the violation report for all of them?
Than I will have enough information to decide would I publish here or on my own pages. I don't want to waste my time somewhere where I'm not:
A) welcome to publish
B) place that eats my time and energy
C) hobby writing that doesn't give back
... while I have my own fresh places which are providing more without any violation reports or hick ups from any advertiser. AdSense included.
Thank you for your attention, but I still believe this site is pro west oriented and all others are purely used for momentary traffic increase. In 7 days I had about 500 page views, so if you count every no native with the same value you will get some pretty interesting values.
By the way Squidoo have double PR and almost double monthly add income, so I think I 'll hop there if I can't get any solid support help and if my hubs will be constantly frozen from time to time just for the joy of the moment or fun before holidays.
Thank you for your reply.
I am not a US citizen and English is not my first language either...I have had no problems with any of my hubs on account of my nationality ...
I guess when we write online, we need to be understood by everyone, no matter where they are from .. An expectation I would consider fair by any standards.. If we do not improve, no matter where we write, our articles may never be read... just my thoughts and opinion on the issue.
In other words, I was put under revision because my articles wasn't read enough? Interesting. I have to say an idea that should be considered.
And the fact that you have an article that appears elsewhere.
Sorry that was not meant to offend, my point was HP does not pull you down because of your nationality.. they just follow Google standards...And there is always scope for improvement in the best of the best...that is how I see it... Anyways I see that you have reached out for help..best wishes to you.
Linking internally must be really relevant, so just randomly linking to your own Hubs can also get Hubs moderated. And I have to say, if your Hubs are written with the same command of English as in your posts, I can see that being a reason for revision.
Admin can take a little while to respond, they ask that you allow up to 48 hours for a reply, so repeatedly mailing them just because you're agitated is only going to back up the moderation queue even more.
I had at look at a couple of your hubs through the Google cache, and perhaps I looked at different ones to the others but I didn't see anything wrong. Your English is very good for a non-native speaker.
I think the problem here is that you have published some hubs which were either very short, or in which the language wasn't up to scratch.
If you can remember the hubs that were flagged first, please go over them and perhaps make them longer, or get a native English speaker to help you brush them up a bit.
Hubpages do tend to unpublish ALL hubs if they find a few not up to standard, but for sure many of your hubs are up to standard and have just caught the flak from the ones that weren't.
HAHAHAHAHAHA! Okay! That's a good one.
Four of five mentioned hubs are my top visited content in last 7 days.
I'm not sure which part of them should I change, because seems that people like them. Even if they are short and so badly written.
P.S. I'm not mad or anything, I'm just enjoying this too much. LOL
If they're written similar to what you've written here, and on your profile page, I'm NOT surprised they need to be revised.
They didn't mention to rewrite my profile page. Please, if you don't find it inconvenient you can provide examples of my mistakes. I wouldn't mind at all. Thank you.
"...another bite a gunshot tube, not very smart but then again if fish stinks it’s from a head ..."
And the correct construction will be...
Please continue, I'm really reasonable person when it comes to my mistakes.
I'm truly grateful to all members who took time and answer my problem. I would really love to hear some thoughts from members of the hubpages who "survived" ice age of their account.
It would be great help to me to hear a word or two from those members. Thank you all once again.
Final decision of the hubpages team:
"Your HubPages account has been placed on probation as a result of repeated rules violations. All of your hubs have been unpublished and will require moderator review in order to be republished. Please revise your hubs as necessary and submit them for review.
After manual review, many of your hubs were found to be substandard, with grammar and spelling issues that interfere with the credibility/readability of the content. For more information on this, please refer to the following entry from our Learning Center:
http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Mode … lity"
I'm not eager to repair my hubs, so I'll just delete them all together with my account. In my opinion I am wasting my time here.
Thank you all who tried to help me, I'm off.
I haven't read your cached articles but by your posts, the only missing grammar I see from you is the word 'a' is not used as a singular connector. That shouldn't be enough to get 'frozen' articles so it probably is that the articles were under the 'word count' and after manually checking, the staff probably decided to 'freeze' all to get (a) brush-up in content. notice the a in parentheses as the connector. It's a typical mistake by Europeans not familiar with English, and is easily correctable , but I must say your command of the English language is much better than I could do with yours.
Aw, thanks , so nice to hear that.
But nah! It's zero importance.
I decide not to write, but only read other people stuff.
Receipts and home making stuff.
And by the way to delete myself I have to contact staff again and I'm not eager to talk to them. The list of the regulation and violations they send me is a mile long.
I think that receipts and commenting suits me the best. Cheers!

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...
