It would be nice if we could have a section in the Community part of the forums specially for Squidoo-ers to discuss with each other and get help from established Hubbers.
I can't "go for it" , Ken - there are already lots of random threads about Squidoo. What I'm saying is, let's have them all grouped in their own section. Although the transition is happening at lightning speed, there's going to be a long tail of confused Squidoo members so it would be good for them to have a place to go.
Not a good idea, it would segregate the Squids and result in less interaction with Hubbers.
What would be nice is if all the threads already running on the subject could be merged into one as there is a great deal of repetition now.
It looks like Paul E. wants to open a forum just for the issues and concerns Squids will be having during the transition. (I read that in his blog about the merger).
In the thread I started for welcoming all Squidoo Lenscrafters, I am referring questions from Squids to the Learning Center, FAQ, or you and Relache. I am concerned that our new members are getting some erroneous advice from some threads, so I hope Paul opens that forum for them soon.
Where's a good place to post a request for review of content. As I try out the different types of hubs, I want to get feedback early on so as to not establish any firmly entrenched bad habits. You know what they say about old dogs and new tricks. Anyway, I managed to become acquainted with the duplicate content filter because I published the hub here before I deleted the lens on squidoo. So, I'm waiting on review. Good to get to know all the processes I guess.
You could read my Hub on the essentials you need. I can't post a link here but you'll find it in the slider in my profile. There's not much you need to know to get started, really.
Marisa Wright's helpful hub can be found at:
How to Move From Squidoo to HubPages - What You Need to Know

Yes, I have been there and even posted it to my profile temporarily. I just missed the part about where to post a request for feedback on a hub. I'll go through it again. As for the duplicate content thing, I got ahead of myself. Walked away for a soda pop then realized what I'd done. No worries. Thank you.
If you publish a hub, you can post a link to it in the Improving Your Hub forum to request help and suggestions from others. It is the only forum category that a person can post a link to their own hub. If you see areas you want to change or improve, you can go back in and edit.
We do plan to add a Squidoo migration related forum in the near future.
Keep an eye out in the technical forum. I will link it here when it is live.
What happened to Squidoo, a refugee place was opened for the squidoo users here...??
Alright HubPages Squidoo Transition... Just have gone through.
I thought I read somewhere that this is already in the plans?
It's in the latest blog post.
I don't see how Hubpages "acquired" the content of Squidoo. I copied my three articles and couldn't transfer them automatically to Hubpages because I already have an account here.
Squidoo is keeping all of the money under $25 (fortunately I have very little ...probably less than $2). People could easily port their content to the other online writing forums.
I'm disappointed to hear that. They owe me money, but it is under $25.
I am sad for you in losing money you worked for. I have that in common with you. Now I am going to take a "Flight of faith," by asking any Squidoo members, if they have time, to inspect my hubs, and if you like them, I would to have you as a follower.
I am serious. I do not take anyone who follows me for gratned.
I learn from my followers.
Just throwing my invitation out there before things get so complicated.
Squidoo announced that the threshold for payments has been lowered to $1.
Phyllis, anytime there is anything in flux here, people get erroneous information.
I was wondering how you transfer your lenses to HubPages? I went to Squidoo and they want you to create a username, password, etc...but I couldn't figure out for what! I already have an account at both places. It's very confusing!
Hi. I'm having the same problem. Squidoo sent me to HubPages, where I establised an account a while back. I try to transfer from Squidoo to HubPages, and I enter my email address, and it keeps going back and forth. I, too, am asked to enter a username, and am not sure what to use! I did manage to sign onto HubPages, but can't figure out how to do the transfer from Squidoo.
You have to create a new Hubpages account, I emailed HP, and they said you can't transfer lenses to an existing account. It seems like that could have been made clear.
That's because you can't transfer your lenses to your existing account, so you'll need a new account.
Though i have effected my move, i didn't/don't like the idea of having to open a new account just for a handful of lenses. Now i think i may have opened one account too many, not to talk of having to get a new email address!
I replied to you abou this on my Squidoo Hub. For established lenses, there are very good reasons to wait and let HubPages transfer them for you: it will preserve the date of publication, the links and traffic and reputation they've gained, etc.
However if you have only a few lenses, and they weren't getting a lot of traffic, you might want to think about moving them yourself, into your existing account. It's really up to you to decide whether you can afford to lose your existing traffic.
Popped over here to comment and realize I actually posted something that was off-topic. Wasn't thinking. Sorry. I appreciate the answers to my question though.

When I hit the transfer button on my Squidoo dashboard and it "forced" me to make a new username for Hub Pages, even tho I had one, I thought that it would be something that would be merged later. Now that I understand more of what's happening, I wish I had not chosen the name I chose...

Just for a bit of background - I have been writing online for years, and literally have millions of words "out there". Only once did I have an AdSense account, and if I remember correctly, it was for a blog that is rarely used. It still appears, if I right-click on the blog, and view the...

Is it wise to have more than one HubPages account?The reason I ask is that I already have two. However, I didn't "create" two accounts myself. What happened is the following: Years ago I created an account here on HubPages, but I never wrote a single word or use the account. THEN recently...

I'm 100% on the side of doing a proper beta test and taking time to make sure every kind of lens transfers with ease - from the small simple ones to the big long complex ones - like mine! I'm less bothered by WHEN my lenses transfer to HubPages than I am about WHETHER they all transfer intact -...

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...
