    I have noticed that when someone is writing an article upon a request they are using the same topic, for example : Tips on  Going Green smile. Although many newbies do not know or have not read the information that HubPages provides, yes you can create your own Topic without using verbatim what we requested.smile We are only giving you an idea, so that you can run with the subject and create your own flare and style. Been there did that, so if you believe you have to duplicate the Topic verbatim you definitely do not. How is someone going to find your article if the Header information is the same?
    Hope this helps. smile So if you have created an article and the same topic matches someone else give it some flare and change it, remember you are unique.:::big_smile

      Thanks!  It's good to know.  I am a complete noob (as you can tell from my stats tongue) and any little tip helps.  I'm still trying to figure all this out! smile

    I have to admit that is one of my pet peeves. Some people seem to think this is Yahoo answers...

    Don't be sorry as when I was new I did it too, I just wanted all to know that it is o.k. to be creative as that is what makes you unique. If we have duplicate Topics on HubPages, someone on google etc, may look for it and they may rad the first person's before yours. It is fine as we have all been there and done that.smile
