I just received an email that my "Sex with older women" hub was removed. It has been on HubPages for at least 5 months. I need to know what I need to change to put it back on. I fear that many more of my hubs might be removed. Any help would be appreciated.
The section about sex:
The hub was removed after it was flagged by the community. HubPages does not allow graphic descriptions of sexual acts. If you remove the description of the sex itself, that hub will be ready for republication. (Alluding to sex or stating that it took place is usually ok. Describing it is not.)
Will you give us examples of whats ok and whats not ok, please? You can be graphic.
Thanks for answering Maddie. Perhaps HubPages isn't the place for creative writing. I do understand the policy but what I don't understand is that if one person flags a hub...it is removed? What I had written in the story is mild compared to other hubs about sex.
I re-wrote it for ya...now it's called "Muffins with older women"
Anyone know of any sites that I can transfer my creative hubs to? There has to be sites out there that allow my kind of writing.

If you need something I'm Keiko Shizuru on there
Just checked it out...looks cool...thanks much!
Just added some stuff on it under a new pen name. Thanks much!
Due to a variety of not-necessarily-new Hub authors having issues like this, I made a Hub about it.
It seems that a lot of folks have skipped reading the TOS or the FAQ parts that discuss content.
Thanks relache.....I did read the TOS but I'm afraid my mistake was not realizing the margins of tolerance. I'm fine with transferring some of my hubs that I feel might not meet the guidelines. I like writing here....but some of my stuff just doesn't fit....and that's OK. I do wish however that when a hub is removed...the violating section would be highlighted.
Tom, I have had similar situations with a couple of my hubs. One was voted down from a hubmob so it became invisible, because somebody objected to the content. We all had problems on that one actually.
Another hub was flagged even though the content it contained was no different from that on many other hubs, as I found after the fact. In my case, my hub did show a bare nipple, and even though lots of others did too, mine upset somebody, and I got flagged.
I really think, based on the first instance, sometimes somebody just doesn't like what you've done and comes after you. Maybe you're getting ahead of them, LOL.
The Hub Pages team does a great job of laisse faire most of the time, but if there is a real cause, however minor we think it is in view of content that goes unflagged, then they have to respond.
Cheers and hang in there!
Thanks RedElf.....I understand moral differences and creative writing clashes a lot with some people. I try to stay within tolerance....but sometimes a story just needs to be told in a certain way. "We kissed...we did it...I left" just isn't that interesting.

Hi,I've read an e-mail I received with the rules and the ONLY thing I could see was that I had 2 links, so I removed one and still got flagged. I think I followed the rest of the rules. Any suggestions? Here's my hub URL:<snipped>THANKS,

HubPages has this wonderful feature called Hub Hopping or Hub Hop to flag low-quality/copied/spam content. I know some hubbers do use this and help HP staff weed out the substandard content. Here's one more reason why everyone should 'hub hop.' I came across this thread on a Google...

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?

Hi,My name is Terry, and I established my first hub about 24 hours ago. I'm very much into Affiliate sales programs and I wanted to share reviews and such of products I'd bought and use to help people decide where the best programs can be found and what tools to use to maximize your...
