I am closing down one hubpage account and transferring some of those articles over to another Hub account. I have deleted them, deindexted them on Google, and waiting for them to be removed from the Hub directory. Can we email hub staff still if we have issues? I couldn't find a link to them for this.
What issues are you referring to? If you still have another HP account, you can always email them using that one.
One word of warning. By deleting, de indexing and waiting you open yourself to plagiarists. If they steal your hubs, you'll have not one leg to stand on legally. Just sayin'
I just checked for plagiarism and found only one article had been so that one was sent a DMCA. The 3 I am transferring are clean. The account now shows as empty because I have unpublished everything on it.
I'm not sure what the issue was last time but a couple years ago when I went to transfer one it was declined. I wrote them and explained I was transferring it and they approved it. I am just worried in case that happens again.
I've moved a one or two and had no problems at all. I did the same as you - closed the other account down about 10 days ago. I'm just giving it a couple of weeks before I start re-releasing them. There were 69 hubs left there. I reckon only about half of them are good enough to republish.
Not worried about them having been copied. If that's the case, I'll DMCA the thieves and rewrite the article.
The email address is team@hubpages.
How can you DMCA if it's no longer published?
Once you delete a hub, there is no way to file a DMCA for it if someone steals it.
Wayback Machine. I have used it and had articles removed this way. If you want your articles saved there you can do that too. Just carry the url over and paste it there. Then you always have a permanent copy of your article.

I've got an 2 year old article that had ads removed because of content, and which I unpublished last month. I've found a new home for it, but first I thought I'd check and see if it had been plagiarised, and sure enough it has.How do I file a DMCA then, as on the form Google specifically asks,...

Writers, how do you feel about plagiarists and why do you feel that way?As a writer, how do plagiarists make you feel? Do you think it's no big deal if someone steals words and passes them off as their own work, or do you think it's just as bad as stealing something physical?Personally, I find...

I just found that one of my Hubs was stolen in June 2014 and published in a magazine. I wouldn't have found out about it except that they have now put their magazine on-line. It was stolen by a slick looking magazine in Australia, and I am from the US. I told them if it wasn't...

I hope this is the right place to ask this question.A few years ago I started a blog on Blogger. Basically a bunch of articles on the how-to of writing. Eventually, because I got busy with other stuff going on in my life, that site fell a bit by the wayside.I didn't do a terribly good job of...

What a mess! I unpublished and deleted a hub that was idled. I used the Webmaster's Removal Tool to make sure it was deleted from Google too and thought great, I am now free to publish again at InfoBarrel but I was wrong. It was denied!I set about searching for the first paragraph of my work and...

I've been going through a few of my old articles from a previous website via the wayback machine. I went to publish it and was told it was duplicate content.I sent a DMCA notice to Yahoo, but I'm confused now whether my hub is published or not, and what I should do while I wait for Yahoo to take...
