    Start reading here,

    http://hubpages.com/faq/#what_is_allowed

    Admin tells you what the reason was when you get flagged (reported for a content violation), so go read that for specifics.

      Take this advice and run with it.

      If you pay attention to what the TOS say and what some of the more experienced hubbers here do then you wouldnt have to worry about such situations

    i think something is screwy, this was up to 75 Hubscore last night today down to 58, and I have only one Hub under this name, so someone has been busy. But the Hub is still up and running so rather than flagging, as there is nothing wtrong with the Hub, the cullprit must be hitting the thumbs dow.
    This is a breach of the T.O.S. (That is if you persist.
    To flag anything is to make it stand out, and then you follow with an objection.
    This Hubber has a never  flag policy, and feels that people that do this are actually rather humorous. Ignore them its not forever they come back again.

      With ZERO Hubs published, your HubScore is going to keep dropping.

          My Hub(score 71) which has ben published for Ions has suddenly been found to be tagged deceptively. So I have removed anything remotely deceptive. Then re submitted.

          Nyliram, if you look at your avatar here, and the text next to it, you will notice that it reads "Hubs: 0"

          That means you have no published Hubs.  You will still be able to see them on your stats page, but to the rest of us, you got nothing.

      Nyliram, if someone hit the "rate or flag" button on your Hub, you don't know about it.  The only flags you see are the official ones, triggered by HubPages itself.

        Thanks marisa no its apparently deceptively tagged so all tags that I even think might be in anyones mind deceptive have been removed.
        Thanks I hadn't realised it wasn't up as its just shown. May explain some of the others Hubscore Drops as well.

    I repeat...how can people give you a thumbs down if you have no hubs for them to rate?

    People can flag all they want but if HubPages finds nothing wrong with it the hub will be left alone.
