Why have people deleted their whole content?
I have noticed that older users from a couple of years back have deleted their whole content. Why? Hubpages is a great site, not dodgy at all. I don't understand why.
If I had to guess, I'd say they probably took their work to a different site. I know that with HubPages, you always own your work, so if you remove it here, you can place it elsewhere.
Perhaps these are people not happy with the changes post-Panda?
NO - I think what you are seeing are hubs that were flagged by the new content standards. . . .and the author refused to change the content.
I'm thinking of hubs by Misha, mostly - I'm pretty sure he just said, you know "eff that - I ain't changing it."
My guess would be that they wanted to leave HubPages. It is much easier to delete your whole content and simply leave your account deserted than officially deleting your account, which requires you to send the HubPages team an e-mail explaining that you want your account to be officially deleted.
I agree with what everyone said here as I know that there are a lot of reasons why someone might leave. Another problem people are having is that they are unhappy with the duplicate content issue which doesn't seem to take into account when an article was published. There are quite a few hubbers who have seen their work copied word for word on other sites and then they get flagged on a hub that has existed for ages as being duplicate content-even though the original article was theirs, not the plagerizer. This has happened to Bobbirant, for example, quite a lot.
Flora. From what I have seen and read and the fact that these people did this nearly two years ago( can tell from comments), your answer is the most viable and most likely. Thank you to others that have answered and helped. It is a bit scary that a plagiarist can do that and reap the rewards from your hard efforts.

I was on another thread and someone said many people sign up on HubPages, but very few go on to write a substantial number of quality Hubs.I wonder why this is and what HubPages can do to encourage people to stay on and improve their Hubs, which seems to be what they want.All my Hubs were recently...

Well, that’s nice, very nice. I haven’t got a clue of what I did wrong. And after filling in the online appeal form they told me they had reviewed my account information, taken my feedback into account, but still had concluded that my AdSense account has posed a significant risk. And I have no...

Why was my hub flagged as duplicate? I had written it on another website over a year ago. I only got about 4 views so I deleted it a few months ago and just put it up here a couple of days ago. The next day it was unpublished. It's not on the other website at all anymore, I even ran it through a...
