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"Sorry, because of rule violations associated with your account or ip address, permission to publish new hubs has been revoked.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?
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.
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.
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.
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..
Thank you all for your help.
I don't see any flagged hubs at all.
I think it's the first one. I did leave some comments with links back to two of my hubs recently.
Those 'unrelated tags' are probably the ones generated by hubpages. You know, the suggested tags.
You're probably correct.
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
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 . . .
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!
Thanks for the update. Hope they remove your restrictions as you have removed the offending picture.
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 !
You are a person that commands respect unlike most, so come on Maddie or Paul give the guy a break !
Helloooooo badcompany? Are you just as bad as you appear to be? or are u just one big pussy cat, needing a girls lap to sit on....lol
Is it just me or have you become really dominant in the last day, I aint no pussy goodfriend and don't confuse me with someone you can put down like tantrum, just might look bad on ya and I wud hate to see that !
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.
Lol yeah you think I had you figured from day 1 my Tiny Dancer friend, bring it on !
I'll bring it "on", you just bring your bad self where I am and I will show you how I can get it "on"
Getting it on with a guy who left the site aint my thing ya know, but if ya get me drunk I might just kiss ya. Ya know what Goodfriend the thing about good writers is they just cant hide their style ya know, and well ya couldnt, but hey tis good to see you back !
Ya know, I am who I am, but who in the heck are you talking about? And no thanks, I don't kiss pirates......lol
How do you know? have you ever met me personally? No I don't think so! Any ways I got to go all be back later, except I am keeping my eyes on you!
I wonder why her Mummy calls her just at that vital question, dunno but shes a bit old for her Mammy telling her what to do lol, I think we have her sussed my Captain, I think you were right !

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in the poetry section.

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

What are your thoughts on the new affiliate link affiliate link blanket rule? Do you think it will reduce the tsunami of spam hubs that spammer hubbers are publishing or will it make no difference at all?Personally I have had three Hubs flagged and placed in no mans land for affiliate links even...

Do you often flag content on HubPages?I see a few hubs everyday that are in English, but poorly written. I hate to flag a hub if someone is just trying to start on HP, but I don't like reading poorly written hubs! What are your thoughts?

I really can't point any of you to the many discussions there were about whether RSS feeds that display our own Hubs in a specific Hub of ours are a violation of the HP rules or not.I read info that the "best", "latest", and "hot" categories were not appropriate to add...
