What did I do wrong?!

  1. Kudlit profile image73
    Kudlitposted 8 years ago

    I was trying to publish a new hub and when I hit the "Publish Now" button, this is what I get:

    "Sorry, because of rule violations associated with your account or ip address, permission to publish new hubs has been revoked. You can still edit your existing hubs and save your changes to this hub by clicking the done editing button. Your right to publish may automatically be restored through time and adherence to the HubPages rules. Fixing or deleting existing flagged hubs may also help."

    What did I do? What rules did I violate? Pointing out what I did wrong can really help me correct it. What violation did I commit?

      Susana Sposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      You'll need to go back to each of your hubs in edit mode and see what it says at the top - it should tell you why that particuar hub has been flagged. Have you been posting the same articles on other sites or maybe adding links to your hubs in the forums or comment boxes here?

      the best way to figure it out is to send an email to the team.

      You did something to violate HP Tos rules , did you copy someone else's work? Or have duplicate content? Did you publish graphic work? Did you spam or harass others? Your ip address will follow everywhere. Contact teamhubpages and they will give you an explanation. smile

    Have you been spamming lately?

  3. Kudlit profile image73
    Kudlitposted 8 years ago

    Thanks for the reply Susan. I'll check my most recent published hubs.

    I don't spam LVM. I do comment on other hubs related to the hubs I publish and mention my hub. Is that spam even the comments are meaningful.

    1. relache profile image87
      relacheposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Comments get marked as spam based on individual judgments by the hub author, and many authors do consider leaving a Hub URL in a comment to be spam, as you are using their page to advertise yourself.

      If you cut-n-paste the same comment to a lot of Hubs, then the system filters might judge it as spam.

      From glancing over some of your Hubs, the vast amount of outgoing links in the text capsules might be one of the problems.

    Thanks Misha and AEvans. I will do just that.

      Please give some feedbacks here.  I'm curious to see how things end up.

    It could possibly be related to a spamming issue.

  6. Ultimate Hubber profile image61
    Ultimate Hubberposted 8 years ago

    In addition to that, there seem to be other violations too like adding extra bit of unrelated tags on one of the hubs I saw.

    do u post an illegal issues? maybe write to the team and find out the causes, that's the fastest way to know the answer i think..

  8. Kudlit profile image73
    Kudlitposted 8 years ago

    Thank you all for your help.

    @DS

    I don't see any flagged hubs at all.


    @relache

    I think it's the first one. I did leave some comments with links back to two of my hubs recently.

    @Ultimate Hubber

    Those 'unrelated tags' are probably the ones generated by hubpages. You know, the suggested tags.

    @AngelofLove

    You're probably correct.

    @michelle

    I agree that the best course of action would be to contact the staff.

    Thank you all for your help. I'll try to figure out how to contact the staff.

    perhaps you have two account or the content has much links. Hubpages just allow three links to one sites

  10. Kudlit profile image73

    Here's an update. I just received an email form Hubpages that I have a flagged hub because of nudity.

    So it wasn't spamming after all!

    I created a Marilyn Monroe hub and published a nude picture. Note: I BLURRED the breast part. Anyway, I've removed the offending picture since and I'm yet to check if I can publish new hubs now.

    More updates later . . .

    UPDATE:

    I can publish new hubs now, Yay! I didn't contact the staff.

    Ok. I'll be creating more hubs now and I'll remember to be careful with the pictures I post.

    Cheers to all!

      Wowwww a BLURRED Monroe boob, but they do bugger all about all the Indian shit that is messing with my ads. Give this Hubber a damn break and do something about the crap that is really messing the site up. Kudlit is a good hubber unlike some of the bullshit crap Indian Pics that you actually feature as featured Hubs. I despair at this, I really do !

    That was interesting how the real cause of the ban was for nudity.  It would be helpful if there was an easier way for people to figure out why they get inhibited.
