I am new to hubpages.com and I am trying to start a page. However it is instructing me to enable cookies on my browser. I use moxzilla fox, which I followed the directions, which are so simple. But I still can't get past the security code. Does anyone know how I can get past this, so I can start hubbing!
It is rare, and we are not certain why, but a few people have had a similar problem with the captcha (security code) on the hub naming page. You might try updating your browser if you do not already have the latest version. We will be making changes to the site soon which will hopefully solve your problem. So perhaps your best bet is to wait and try again later today or tomorrow.
I apologize for the inconvenience.
(I am a software engineer at HubPages.)
The changes have been made to the site. Please try making another hub and let us know if you are still having problems. Thanks!
When I try to create a hub, it asks for a security code and when it is provided, it takes long time to process and finally the security code is not recognized. Any help in resolving this will be much appreciated.
The security code is actually the "captcha" used to defer non-human posts. The captcha system seems to be causing trouble anywhere it's used. I am sure HP staff will be working on this. See more on this... http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/73463#post1596050
I am suffering from exactly the same problem as jjsundar as well. Considering the original reports were 2 years ago - it does not bode well !!
The problem just appeared again this morning. It did not exist for two years. Captcha is only used on Hubs for new Hubbers. You won't need to deal with it after a while. But I just ran into a similar problem this morning on something else that uses Captcha.
CAPTCHA is an acronym that stands for "Completely Automated Public Turing Test To Tell Computers and Humans Apart." It is a service run by an independent firm, not HP.

I know it can be done per hub, but can we add an option to automatically turn off all emails for new comments? I'd still like to receive emails from hubpages but not comments, and I have too many hubs to go through all of them, and my inbox is filling up. :-/
