Help! It says that my Hub is a duplicate
I currently tried to make a new hub. but it says that it is a duplicate! That is absolutely not the case, and I was wondering if it could possibly be because I have it posted in my notes on facebook. I want to say however, that my notes are supposed to be only viewable by me. Could that be the problem?
Probably not unless the nostes are a substantial portion of the hub. However, get in touch with HP staff and let them know that it's your Facebook account and only viewed by you, thus private not public.
The duplicate notification is an automatic filter generated message meant to remind authors about a possible violation.
For example, I have a hub which I had published on another site months before I published on HP, I got the duplicate message. After I explained to the HP staff the hub was allowed.
Thank you very much. I'll try and get into contact with them to let them know. ASAP. Thanks again.
There are mainly two reason you've got that comment, 1. It is either you have pasted it on another website, or you copied it from another website. If neither of the above reason then i suggest you contact the HP Staff.

Can you please tell me why i cannot publish my hub, it is not a duplicate because I am the creator of it and no one else could have written this on hubpages.
