Have you ever flagged a hub, profile, or question?
Have you ever flagged a hub, profile, question, or comment? Why did you flag it? Do you know what happened after you flagged it?
I have at some point flagged anything that can be flagged on HubPages. I do it because the material was somehow in violation of the terms of the site, and because admin asks us to please bring such material to their attention (which is what flagging does).
As for what happens later, I don't always go back and check. But I have seen TOS violations corrected, I've seen totally inappropriate material unpublished and I've seen spam accounts banned.
Yes, I've flagged a few hubs. If I come across a hub while hub hopping that obviously violates HubPages rules and standards (foreign language,copied articles, spun, too short, etc.), I do flag it for review. It is then up to the moderators to decide if the hub should remain published. I believe that requesting review of substandard articles helps to maintain a higher overall quality of articles on HubPages.
I don't usually check back to see what happened as the final decision is out of my hands. I've never flagged a comment or question.
I flagged a couple that were completely commerical, just using HubPages as a billboard. I don't know what happened beyond that. Found them hubhopping.
I have flagged for poor grammar and spelling and spam per instructions. Hp staff reviews and decides. I have checked back and found a spammy hub deleted.

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.

I think the answer to this question lies in the intent of the real breaker. But, I have noticed that some people are more inclined to enjoy catching a...

For the second time my poetry challenges have been flagged for content violations. I do not know why people are offended by something i tried to create to help fellow poets on HubPages, but HubPages has made it clear that my challenges are not appreciated. I will be posting my future...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

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...

I just posted a bit ago a request for help on a hub that has been flagged over promotional. I just realized nobody can see the hub in question since the hubpages staff said to unpublish. How do you get someone with experience to look it over and help with it if they can't see it? It has been...
