    Is it a good idea to have a link to a HubPage account included on a Wikipedia page? I understand there was some sort of problem between the sites. Please let me know what the situation is about this.

    Do you mean a link to a hub or article, or to your stuff as a hubber ?

    I can't imagine that it would be a bad thing either way

      I mean is it OK for hubbers to have links to their profiles here if they have Wikipedia pages about them? And is it a good idea to post HubPage article links as backup references on Wikipedia pages?

        I don't see why not.

    At one time, HubPages was blacklisted on Wikipedia. I'm not sure about now though. Probably hasn't changed. I tried putting in a link to a page on this website, and it wouldn't go. You can cheat by breaking the link, but it doesn't look pretty, and the mods there wouldn't like it. Someone might discover that you tried to work around the filter by breaking the link.

      Thanks for letting me know! This is what I feared.

        You're welcome. You could try a personal website that has links to your HubPages profile or articles...

        Worked for me.

          I was trying to find out on behalf of CJ Stone as well as myself. I told CJ I thought there was a problem with HP at Wikipedia. You have confirmed I was right.

            Glad to help. By the way, my phrasing in my previous comment was a bit off, perhaps. I meant to say one could link to a personal website in a Wikipedia article. Having links to your profiles and articles from a personal site goes without saying! tongue

              Yes, I understood that. Thanks again!
