    How can we check on the profiles and hubs we have flagged?

    After spending time on flagging, I would like to know the outcome of review by hubpages team. Is there any way to do this other than bookmarking them?

    I think bookmarking is the only real way to do it, there doesn't seem to be any other way. Following hubs doesn't allow you to see the outcome, as far as I know, so it looks like unless Hubpages updates something in the near future bookmarking is just the way it is.

    I think this question should be put to the higher powers at Hubpages because after all, they are in control of whether or not our hubs are published. There must be some kind of system in place AFTER we flag a hub and I think we deserve to know what it is and what has been done after we have flagged someone.

    I wrote a hub DO YOU HAVE A MYSTERY HUBBER?  By that, I mean someone who leaves comments that include advertising for their website or hubs and when you go to see what else they wrote, you find they wrote ONE hub, pure advertising for their business.

    I think HP and all of us collectively need to send a message that HP is not  an avenue to get free advertising with their links. We have adverts on our hubs that we make money on if we are linked to the Adsense program. We will make no money on these commenters - but that isn't even really the point.  The point is -- they shouldn't be allowed to advertise their businesses by creating a hub and/or leaving spammy comments through hubpages community with their link in the comments.

    There should be a better system in place.  And I think HP should be more clear on 1) what that system is, 2) what the consequences should be for violators 3) some kind of detection tool that picks up these links in newly created hubs so that these newbies don't get too far into our directory leaving their link in comments and running wild

    WOW, can you tell you have touched a nerve with me?? LOL  This is a big bone of contention for me.  I hub hop often and see so much of what SHOULD NOT be allowed and wonder --- there oughta be a law!!

    Thank you for asking this question. Sorry for the rant. :-)

    This type of information is withheld by HubPages for Security and Statistical purposes. We are not Moderators and we can not remove a Hub personally, as Individual Hubbers.

    We are allowed to Flag a Hub or Hubber if we feel that their Content Violates HubPages Terms of Use (i.e. "User Agreement": including Inappropriate Content, Underage User, Adult Content, Spam, etc. (A List of all Moderation Violations: … Moderation)

    As D22314 says, the only way to know if a Hub or Hubber has been removed is to Bookmark the Hubber/Hub Article and frequently check it. I had started doing this awhile ago when I was Hub Hopping like crazy, but eventually I realized that it was a waste of my time.

    HubPages has a great staff of Moderators that work hard to evaluate and remove content that does not meet HubPages' standards. As long as we Hubbers continue to Flag the Hubs and Hubbers that Violate the site, the Moderators will work diligently to ensure that  the bad content is removed.

    I know it can be frustrating when we don't know if our Flagging Efforts are making a difference because we don't receive this feedback. I think in the long run it is a good thing because we may become more focused on looking for violations instead of creating new Hub Articles ourselves. My advice is to keep Flagging whatever violates the HubPages Publishing Guidelines, Comment on the Hubs you enjoyed reading, and Keep Writing Great Content! That is what will make HubPages a "Safer" Place!

    I hope this helps answer your question! Happy Hubbing!
