    Hmmm.... I'm in. I think. I signed up but it doesn't seem to have completed my registration. It says "done" but it doesn't seem done. I'll check my email and see.
    Anyways "count me in".
    I love what you are doing. I've been studying climate change for many years now and the effects it would have on our planet, before it was even "officially" acknowledged in the mainstream. Great idea!

    If you also post your comments and carry the rss feed from that page it will help to get everyone indexed in google.

    Hi, Murray:  This is a great idea, but I'm confused about the close of the competition.  You say it closes on Friday, 24th, but the 24th is Saturday.  Does it end Friday 23rd or Sat. 24th?  Thanks!

  14. ilovehubbing profile image60
    ilovehubbingposted 8 years ago

    We will make it the 24th for safe keeping smile

      Can we create a satirical hub about this topic?

  15. ilovehubbing profile image60
    ilovehubbingposted 8 years ago

    Hi

    Well done PM me your paypal email and I will send you $5 !

    I do not think that it is fair if I comment on individual hubs while the contest is going.

      Did you do this to get your $5

      "The first 20 people who sign up here http://www.carbonadvicegroup.com/partner_programme.php and include a link back to their site and post “Count me in” below get $5 paid into your papal account. Remember it has to be a QUALITY hub. One $5 per person.

    Signed up at Carbon Advice Group
    Wrote and posted the hub here on hubpages
    I have posted the link here in the forum.

    Hi

    Just an idea, it you write about your love for carbon offsetting then you could enter it in this weeks hubmob too. That will get you more links to your hub and more traffic from google smile

    I'm done as Christoph said I'm in now here is the link


    http://hubpages.com/hub/Green-House-Gases-Emissions

    I've signed up to the Carbon Advice Group (I will go later and make the site more Me) but I wanted to publish the hub first.
    It is linked and published and RSS'd

    I see it thanks smile

    How are people putting those clickable banners in their hubs?  Can somebody enlighten me?

    1. ProCW profile image82
      ProCWposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      They just say click on me, but aren't clickable....... smile

  24. Christoph Reilly profile image75
    Christoph Reillyposted 8 years ago

    Yes, I see.  Was just trying one.  I have the HTML code, but can't get it to work in the text capsule set on HTML.  I must be putting it in the wrong place.

  25. Christoph Reilly profile image75
    Christoph Reillyposted 8 years ago

    Funride's is clickable.  Do I insert the HTML in between the letters on the HTML text capsule that are already there, or erase what's there then paste my code..or what?

  26. Christoph Reilly profile image75
    Christoph Reillyposted 8 years ago

    Ok.  Funrides is not on hubpages.  Probably, hubpages does not allow some of the particular codes that go with this banner.  Does that seem like a logical explanation?

    1. funride profile image65
      funrideposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      That´s right Christoph, I only used the clickable banner on my blog wink. Hubpages never allowed html codes so I just added the picture smile.

      BTW, I´ve improved my hub (competition was getting tougher lol).

  27. ilovehubbing profile image60
    ilovehubbingposted 8 years ago

    Hey

    Hubpages only like one link out per hub, that is why I said only one link smile

  28. Christoph Reilly profile image75
    Christoph Reillyposted 8 years ago

    Murry:  I recieved the $5.00. Thanks!

    Funride:  Improved you hub?  IMPROVED YOUR HUB????  FOUL!   Oh, so you did, did you, Mr. Funride?  Do you mean to suggest that your hub was not 100% in the first place?  Did you not put as much effort into it originally?  Ha!  I would never do such a thing.  I will, however, have to go see what illegal activities you have been up to over there.  Besides, your hub was just fine.

    Thanks for confirming that stuff about the banner.  I figured it out eventually, but I wasn't sure, so I appreciate the confirmation.  Thanks!

      Something most be wrong because I haven´t got it yet roll.

      Oh, I get it! Murray is waiting until the end of the contest to give me the $205.00 in one single payment http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x300/funride_01/_pray.gif big_smile.



      http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x300/funride_01/smile03.gif lol http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x300/funride_01/smile03.gif lol http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x300/funride_01/smile03.gif lol http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x300/funride_01/smile03.gif lol http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x300/funride_01/smile03.gif lol http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x300/funride_01/smile03.gif lol

      Now don´t you go back on your word because I´ll also be checking if you made some changes to your hub tongue. Besides I clearly warn everybody that I had to make some betterments in my hub (I believe I received some kind of substandard warning http://i185.photobucket.com/albums/x300/funride_01/smile04.gif).

    I just published my hub on "What's Your Carbon Footprint?". This was an exciting hub to write. I've been talking about climate change long before people would believe me. The progress made in the last couple years has been awesome. although we are off to a late start!
