    I've just published a Hub and in red it says "Duplicate". I'm not sure what I should do. The photos are from my own yard. I did copy a poem by Louisa May Alcott which I attributed to her. Can someone help me please? Should I delete the Hub?

      No, you shouldn't. Duplicate means that the content you posted also appears somewhere else on the net in the same form. In your case it's because of the poem. If you add some more thought of your own to the hub the duplicate flag will disappear.

        A big slab of duplicate content without rejigging will keep the flag up.

        Though if suziecat doesn't mind the flag (which only she can see) and she doesn't put any offsite links to the hub, it should be fine to keep.

          Saw the hub and still think adding content will solve it. To say the least, I've never seen a guy who is such a mixture of sarcasm, pessimism, optimism and altruism as you are. Strictly in a good sense, though. smile

    Yes, the rest of the content is mine with some research. Photos are mine too. I may just add more of my own content and delete the poem. Thanks, everyone

      If you need the poem, and want to avoid duplicity, then make it into a graphic (520 pixels wide) and upload it in the Photo Capsule.

      And if you wanna go more creative..
      - Just drink some water
      - Clear ur thread
      - Go and recite it with your heart in there while recording the video or even audio
      - Publish it on youtube or any allowed video broadcaster sites
      & voila.... you hub will get enriched more
