Regarding InfoBarrel; after reading the terms of agreement over there...
It states that you cannot use articles that have been previously published...so do I take that at face value meaning I cannot move Hubs I have here over to InfoBarrel?
That's what it sounds like to me, they want only new stuff.
It seems they haven't read over their TOU carefully! The admins have answered similar questions on the forum about this recently and the answer is always that you have to delete it from the other site first, and then when it clears from Google cache you're good to go.
Here's what it says in the FAQ:
"2. I have an article posted on another site. I want to move it to InfoBarrel, is this allowed?
Provided you remove the article from any other sites where it may have been published we will accept this article. Make sure you have removed it prior to adding it to InfoBarrel otherwise it will be denied."
And yet the TOU says something different as you noticed. If you scroll down in the comments on the TOU page, Admin addresses someone's question about this and says that previously published material is ok as long as you remove it from the other site first. Given that everyone republishes stuff and admin has never closed anyone's account for it, I would say that you can go ahead and do it.
In a nutshell, they're inconsistent. Many places on the site they say it's ok (faq, forums) but only one place (TOU) they say it's not. I'd go with what admins have said directly to members on the forum, that it's ok.
Thanks, even though confusing it does clarify it to some degree. I may try it over there.
technically, yes, you cannot move hubs from here to Infobarrel. Only original articles are accepted there. Even expertscolumn and triond don;'t accept repost articles. You could try Wikinut. This site accept re-post articles. Here is the link:
Wikinut doesn't look too good. I just browsed an article and it was written in pretty poor English, giving incorrect information to boot. Granted, you can find the same low quality here as well...
Actually I heard from InfoBarrel and It IS okay to repost as long as they have been completely removed from other sites.
UPDATE; I heard from InfoBarrel and they say officially it IS okay to post your hubs there as long as they has been removed from here.
