Teacher Michelle (Ripplemaker) asked if I could post this question in the forum for her.
She recently got permission from a publishing company to post their story in her article as long as it is in a "non-profit environment". Can she use it in HubPages? Or is HubPages for profit?
I don't think hubpages qualifies as a non profit. But, if she isn't signed up with the affiliates and is just writing for fun or to help the readers then I would say those hubs are not for profit. But she should ask her publisher to clarify what they mean. if they mean only those NOP that file under 501 with IRS then that would be different.
Judging by the level of earnings experienced by many here; one surely could contend that this would qualify as a 'non-profit environment' (initially).
Such a 'term' would always be contentious in regard to interpretation. What context is the term set in, within RM's agreement?
You can turn the ads off completely and make that page non-profit.
That's true, but then that would probably defeat one of the purposes for publishing the article in the first place.
Can one do that on one page only?
Well, if that is possible... I would.
It's a children's story...a short one but it is something dear to my heart.
Yes, you can, tich. You'll see the option at the top of the page in Edit mode. Uncheck "this hub may be considered commercial" then select None for Ads.
Yeah I would say it is, I don't think there's any way to turn all the ads off completely.
I see... I didn't really see the "agreement", Teacher Michelle just told me about it. She'll have to be the one to clarify that, I think. I'll go call her.
Teacher Susan, thanks so much for posting the question. You are a dear!
I will clarify with them. But when I asked permission I did post the link of Hubpages and told them I had intended to share it here. Hmmm...but I will ask. Thanks everyone. :-)
In reality... How could anyone say 'No' to you Ripplemaker?
Especially when she points a loaded gun to your head? Haha!
Ummmm....maybe when it's policy.
aaawww thanks though Pearldiver.
Susan, just wanted you to know they said "yes" and granted me permission (with the adsense and the amazon present). Yehey!

Are hubs with just pictures, or maybe with a little bit of text ok?I know some of these are called "Aunty Hubs" and was a source of discussion quite a while ago, but with the Panda rollout, what is the policy?

In reviewing my traffic sources recently, I noticed that I was getting traffic from a site called traffup.com, which I had never heard of before. I went to the site and signed up for it to see what it was all about, and found that someone had posted a link there to one of my hubs. I thought...

At times when I check some hubbers' pages, a notification appears like "the hubber has been banned from HubPages". How can we know on what ground the hubber has been banned and what is the fate of his already published hubs? Can he publish those on other sites. Can anyone give...

Almost a year ago I wrote an article and put it up on Helium (first and LAST time I would ever do that!). Because I had stupidly not read all of the fine print in the Helium user agreement I now cannot delete that article from their site in spite of the fact that I have no desire to be active there...
