I kind of feel stupid for asking but If there is someone who joined hubpages 3 hours or so ago and has published 5 hubs...isn't there supposed to be more to a hub than a rss link, a few ads and a comment box? would that qualify as duplicate? (I need Marks permission to place sarcastic dude here) All five hubs seem the same...a very confused me!!!! Zs
Thanks Misha! I just don't understand the mentalety behind this type of c**p? What a waste of time...Zsuzsy
Thanks Relache! I just came back to the computer and was going to flag all 5...Thanks for the advice.Zsuzsy
There's a lot of people like that. With any service, forums or places that are popular, you'll see an influx of low quality users who think they can cash in quickly and make a buck. Do they think actual human beings enjoy reading 300 words of nothing but a sales pitch?
It happens on articles sites, forums, websites, blogs, you name it!
The only thing that will keep this place running smooth and full of high quality hubs is the Hubber community. From what I can see in the short amount of time here, I feel this place can survive and is full of high quality content. What you can do is...
Flag them as spam or low quality. Take 2 seconds if you get suckered into reading something awful to warn the next person so maybe they don't waste time.
After running several communities myself, I can tell you without a doubt that if the community sets a high standard and enforces, it.. the people who join will either participate as human beings trying to create things that benefit the Internet and enrich other people's lives or they will be forced out as they realize it's not tolerated here and their behavior is not profitable.
I've seen some awesome hubs by long time members. I've learned a thing or two. And some hubs are by members who joined 3 days ago and have 10 of the worst hubs ever. I flag them in hopes others won't waste time and won't take away from the true work of the people who have put in some real thought into their work.
Can we have a warning on those, please?

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

I have encountered a very poorly written hub, the spelling and grammar was bad and the sentences were incomprehensible. The hub has less than 300 words in total including the title (268 words exactly) and has more than 15 none-English words. I had to check the hubber profile; the hubber has 12...

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the time of year, holidays, seasons, and current events to name a few. If left alone,...

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 know we should report spun articles and the like, but the guidelines also warn to be careful not to report people who don't have English as their first language.However, I've come across hubs that are written by such people, and the English is pretty bad.I don't mean to be insensitive or...

How many times do you edit an idled Hub before deleting it? Or do you keep it idled so that links to it are still good? Also, for what reasons do you either leave it idled or delete it or still try to fix it? I have one Hub which I've edited a few times, and this last time after I edited it, it...
