Flagging hubs

    How do you know if anything happens after you flag a hub? or report a post?

    Does anything happen?

    If the team decides that it is not worthy of being a hub, they mark it, giving the hubber a chance to fix the problem or delete it.. I believe. Not 100%.

    Just adding to what Whitney said; Your flagging alone will not suffice, I believe it takes more than one flag to alert the "authorities".

    Why would anybody want to "rat out" another hubber?  Unless they were advocating mayhem of some kind.

      I suspect you've about pegged it here.  I'm with you on the free speech thing.  I don't particularly care to look at a bunch of women's boobz, but that doesn't make me dislike hoodala or anyone else for their choice of Hub content. 

      I just don't click on his boob hubz, although I might click on some of his other type work.  It's called freedom of choice and personal responsibility and the world is much nicer with both, even the internet world. wink

        That's how it should be... This world is that of personal choice. Click what you will. Read what you want. Personal choice... Click something that you would have preferred not to see, well you clicked it.

        I do agree there are several hubs throughout HubPages that are packed with pictures of breasts and womanly parts, but one must realize the women are clothed! Bras. Bras are clothing, so because the woman have clothing, although the pictures are close up on the breasts, they are covered by clothing.



        Definately agreed. I think that some people need to let things go. Don't drive things in over and over again. It gets old and repetitive, which is against the Forum rules from my understanding... So if people want to play by the rules, don't forget them.

          No theres definitely hubs with sexually explicit material and full on nudity... If I recall you happen to be a fan of one actually.

          And nothing gives anybody the right to just violate the rules of hubpages because they feel like it.

          Maybe you don't realize this but the main reason you're not aloud to post sexually explicit or nude pictures is because it violates GOOGLE ads policies and will endanger hubpages contract with them...

    I do flag on occasion. But the people I flag I do not consider hubbers. Blatantly duplicate content, one-liners with an embedded ad. That sort of thing.

    Thought I was doing the community a favor lol.

    I would prefer that people don't post sexually explicit and nude pictures... I don't care what they are advocating, I just want them to follow the rules that hubpages has.

      I completely agree.  I'm sick of it.  Why do they think rules are made?  We have a bunch of law breakers on HubPages.

        If they've broken the law then feel free to report them to the appropriate authorities.

      Whitney, it was not you. Here is who did it :

    what's kind of interesting is that I also read in the rules that continual slamming of another hubber through flagging and thumbing down could result in the slammer's hubs being removed and them being IP banned. 

    I think that is going to prove an important levelling tool for fairness/content on Hubpages. smile

    Yes, theres certainly the potential for abuse, I'm glad there's a system in place to prevent that from happening.

    indeed.  so am I. 

    it keeps one person, or one small dedicated group of people from harassing others on this site.  I only wish something like this were in effect on other internet sites as well.

    May I ask if this is in context to Mark's hub?

  11. College politico profile image59
    College politicoposted 9 years ago

    partially... but hes not the only one

    And even if the hubpages staff disagrees somehow. Id like to know they did and why...

  12. blessedmommy profile image89
    blessedmommyposted 9 years ago

    Am I referring to Mark's hub?
    "If the shoe fits, wear it," as the saying goes. 
    Actually, I'm referring to SEVERAL hubs by many different authors.  Nudity is all over HubPages.
    And what really irks me is that many of these hubs have been tagged HOME, FAMILY, etc.  They many times have the highest HubScores even though they break the rules.  It's like promoting things that you're against.  I don't understand it.

    Let Hubpages sort it out then. Just. Let. It. Go.

      Stop. bringing. it. up. then.

      I started this forum to see what happens when you flag something...

    Sorry I brought it up... I was just curious... :-/

      College politicoposted 9 years ago in reply to this

      No I didn't mean that to be directed at you. I'm perfectly willing to answer your questions...

      I was directing it at people who criticize me for talking about something and then are shocked and offended when I respond...

      You have the right to ask questions, dear.  No one is blaming you for anything.  wink

    Politico, let HP staff enforce HP rules. Shut yourself down, you are not appreciated.

      Misha... don't be shocked... I couldn't care less what you think about me.

        Being shocked is your privilege big_smile

        I'm having fun lol

    Thanks guys. I just feel as though I started it, as I brought the other thread up...

    I just wish it would all stop honestly. I thought we were all adults, but it seems all everyone wants to do here is fight and argue. It's like grade school all over again. Makes me avoid the forums sometimes... :-/ I think a lot of what is said can be kept to ourselves, and like Misha said, let the team enforce rules versus Hubbers (anyone not just one person, as lately we all seem against each other) attempt to correct the doings of others. That's why we're given the privilege to flag hubs. In a way this is our contribution to assisting the HP team in enforcing the rules... Why can't we just leave it at that?

    Right now I feel like a 5 year old want her parents to stop fighting...

    lolz, darkside.  smile

    I had a cyberstalker file a false report on me for talking about frozen sparrows, zombies, the stock market, drano, poetry to my lover, che berets, meat grinders, chavez yada yada... "it's all about me!!!"  roflmao.

    I know these type of loonies.  You'd be surprised but some of these freaks do call the police constantly and their local departments file them away as cranks.  The girl that did that to me has an extensive 'crackpot' history with her local pd over her insane reports filed on seemingly endless people that had pissed her off by catching her attention and simply existing and being perceived by her as being 'happier'. :p
