I wrote a hub titled 'Cu Chulainn Celtic Legend - His Birth'. I love Celtic mythologies, researching, and writing about them. Cu Chulainn is one of my favorite legendary heroes.
The problem is, I cannot write any follow-up hubs to continue his story because I keep getting the "Duplicate Warning" message.
The warning stems from the fact that character and place names will be the same ones appearing in the original hub.
I have at least four hubs that will tell the story of Cu Chulainn from birth to death. Yet I cannot submit them because they are seen as duplicates! If I combine all the hubs as one, I will end up with a hub of at least 5500 words.
Changing the titles will not help, I already tried that. It is the actual text that is seen as duplicate, even though the hub is a different story that can stand alone as its own hub.
Is it possible management can review the 'duplication' rules and help me out here?
Suggestions or advice will be greatly appreciated.
Phyllis, character and place names will not cause the duplicate filter to trip.
Do you have any of the material already published on another site? Are you quoting large chunks of material from another site? Either of those will trip the duplicate filter.
Earlier today I remembered I did write another article on Cu Chulainn on another site. I will have to contact that site to see if they will take my article down. I am sure that must be the reason for the duplicate warning.
I will let you know what happens. Thank you, Marisa.
That is what I would do. Send an email to email@example.com - with a link to this forum discussion.
Thank you, Website Examiner. That is a great idea. I hesitated to do that in the beginning because it states in the warning to not contact them about duplications.
Thanks for your help.
Seems that my previous advice was based upon incomplete information, unfortunately. Thanks to Marisa Wright for helping set the record straight.
