Passing The Torch On HubPages
awordlover - Anne DiGeorge
The future of awordlover's Account
6. What happens to my account when I die?
The ownership of a HubPages account is established by:
- Access to the account email associated with the HubPages profile
- Knowledge of the username and password
- Knowledge of the answers to the account security questions.
If you are concerned about succession, make sure to share that information with whomever you would like to have control of your account upon your passing.
What happens to your work if you die or can't carry on? - offered by Rachael O'Halloran, moderator
If you are reading this, it is possible you are a follower of awordlover. You may even know awordlover through print media, personal life or reputation. Or maybe you are a follower of this topic and stumbled on this hub.
We hope this hub will show you the importance to carry on a hubber's work in the event of death, as in this case.
We also want to let you know that awordlover's hubs will be moderated by team members as appointed by her husband John. Along with him, there are two more of us who will be maintaining the hubs, moderating the comments and hopefully continue to publish interesting hubs. Rachael O'Halloran and Fiona Powers join awordlover's team.
Each of us has a different technique when it comes to writing and we all enjoy different genres. While awordlover's expertise was in the health field, she did write on other topics and we hope to expand on that.
We want to keep her hubs alive and keep her name in view. Her husband asked for help with this because he wants to make sure her work stays on this site with current comments and new hubs. Her hubs also bring in a nice revenue.
See the sidebar for HubPages rule #6.
January 19, 2014 - Fiona Powers will no longer be moderating awordlover's hubs. Anne's husband John will help organizing the files and manuscripts. I will do my best to keep up with publishing and moderating your comments.
Thank you for your support.

Comments on Hubs
Since June, many of the comments on her hubs have been submitted but were not published. This decision was made for several reasons.
- The comment had nothing to do with the subject matter of that hub
- The comment was abusive and a personal attack to awordlover due to being an owner of over 15 Facebook groups, which were passed on to others or disbanded upon her death.
- The commenter profile was no longer active
- The comment contained links to spammy websites
- The commenter spammed all of awordlover's hubs with the same comment.
Some comments had so many misspellings on them that Rachael's cat could have produced better comments just by sitting on the keyboard.
awordlover also had two stalkers on Facebook who dogged her on various health websites where she was a contributor. Although they have been repeatedly reported, Facebook allowed them to keep their accounts. awordlover blocked them on Facebook, but could not do so on other websites.
Some commenters just were vicious and mean, It takes its toll on awordlover's family, so that they had to shut the world out for a while by not answering mail or calls.
People created Hubpages accounts/profiles to be able to comment on her hubs, then deleted their accounts. When we read the comments, we chose to not publish them.
We have to trust Hubpages to act swiftly to ban these profiles when their sole purpose was to be hurtful to another person, especially one who is no longer here to protect herself.
It is important that hubbers always moderate their comments so that these people (many with fake profiles) cannot see their comment on your hub immediately (thus getting instant gratification), especially when it is inappropriate, hurtful or spammy.
What Happens To My Hubs?
Are you concerned about happens to your work if, in some way, you would not be able to take care of your Hub account?
One never knows what will happen in the future. awordlover knew her illness would someday make it hard or impossible to keep up her work and that she would have to give her account information to someone. She wanted someone to publish all the unpublished hubs she has stored on this account and on flash drives, and to moderate the comments that are written on her hubs.
Are you prepared to pass the torch for your work?
Just as you would prepare your final paperwork for your family, provide passwords for online stores/sites and bank accounts, it is fitting to prepare your HubPages for perpetuity.
if you cared enough about your work to put it here on HubPages, then you should care enough to secure your sign-on information to give to a trusted friend/family member to be able to continue your account, moderate your comments, and keep your work in the public eye. This is especially important if you have high quality hubs that are financially rewarding to your bank account.
With the quality and volume of work on HubPages, and with plagarism rampant on the internet, it is so important that you make your account settings and passwords known to someone you trust, someone you would want to carry on your work.
Do it today.
