I was on Squidoo a few years ago. Now I'm back to writing. It's been so long that I was on Squidoo that I don't remember what e:mail/user name/password I was using then. My old e:mail addy's are closed. It's been so long I can't possibly have a 'featured' lense, and I understand those are the only ones that will be automatically transferred. Is there a way to access my old lenses and manually transfer them?
(If any of you are also writing on Suite 101 - now Suit IO - I have basically the same question!)
Work in Progress lenses were to import too I believe. You know the ones that went into the red because of lack of traffic, this is different than the locked lenses that weren't imported over.
Perhaps you could use the wayback machine to jog your memory of usernames and such?
Robin, do you remember the titles of any of your articles? Because you could try a google advanced search (<text to find> site:hubpages.com) and if any of your articles were featured and were transferred over, they would come up in google and you could then approach Hubpages admin with some info to then request access to your account. (Or otherwise try the Wayback machine as Jason suggests.)
Robin, when I looked up your name online I found an old homeschool blog that I think may be yours. If so, it links to your Squidoo lenses which are filed under:
I'm a little confused what's going on with your account. It looks like one of Glen's lenses has somehow gotten listed there? But at any rate, if that's your lensmaster name, try this:
2. Click the "forgot username or password" link
3. You've got your username -- SadieCope, right?
4. Hopefully that will send your password to an email address you still have.
If those email addys are no longer working, I'm afraid you may have to get help from Hubstaff, as I doubt SquidooHQ will be answering help-mail at this point.
In theory, your lenses should still be on Squidoo; the only ones transferred before the end of this month should be those whose owners have instigated the transfer on their Squidoo dashboard.

According to Paul Deeds' forum post, transfers of articles on Squidoo are beginning today. Has anyone had their account transferred yet? If so, how did it go?http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/123836? … ost2621573

I just want to make sure I am clear on the transition information. My stuff transferred overnight, so that means that I have 4 months to clear up skulls etc before the hubs get moderated, correct?I am going to have to completely revamp quite a few former lenses due to the fact that much of my...

I'm not knocking anybody (or maybe I am) but I have seen several "Hubs" that transferred from Squidoo that are composed of nothing more than very thin content and a whole bunch of merchandising links (and even one lady who pimped her own Etsy page multiple times in her "Hub")....

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 -...

I cannot believe the amount of lenses from Squidoo, strictly about Squidoo are not only on Hub Pages, but they are found at the bottom of other hubs under Related Hubs.

I just checked a few of my former lenses, and it seems like 301 redirects from Squidoo don't work anymore.Does anyone know anything about this? I used to have some social media traffic, mostly from Pinterest and Google+. That traffic is lost now. Cheers,
