I am starting to see more and more Editors Icons on my pages. I do not want strangers messing with my work. If there is a problem, then let me know and I will fix it or unpublish the page or move it off the site.
How can I stop these "editors" from accessing my pages and changing things without my permission?
You cant. Editbot and HubPro Basic will go where they will. Frankly, I consider them benign and am fine with it.
The rules were changed on this site so you cannot opt out of editorial access. HubPages can do whatever they want to your content, and your only recourse is to remove your writing from this site.
Most of the "editbot" changes are simple typo, spelling or punctuation errors-- you can change them back if you want to.
You can opt out of the editpro program-- I don't even know if they are still doing those, but they contact you first-- and you can also change those back to the way they were.
Set up your own, well publicised site, and post them there?

I have recently been on overdrive with making changes to my articles. I am doing a lot of experiments with changing titles, changing headings within the articles, amazon affiliate capsules/link changes etc. Basically just doing experiments and waiting to see if traffic improves and/or amazon sales...

The sad thread about the HubPro edits is long, and this takes the discussion a different direction.Based on what happened to the hub in question on the other thread, there are questions about the contrast in copyright ownership vs 'work for hire.' This site advertises that writers retain...

Bit by bit the 'editing' is changing my words .... I know it is 'for the good of the whole' but I am starting to feel a bit put off by it all.Some of my English grammar is going too, or my English-isms and I find that sad.I have now had my bio put like this 'Susan enjoys travel, art, writing, and...

I have an article that an editor has made substantial changes too. Including adding a bio that they wrote themselves. I have not seen an edit this bad in quite some time on one of my articles, and I do not want to go through the whole article and rewrite half of it. I've already spent countless...
