    I was just reading some of the supportive statements in the old thread, OMG...
    I'm not used to 'supportive' statements or gestures, Thank You Everyone...

    The Hub Staff sent me this e-mail:

    Dear Mikel G Roberts,

       Your Hub has been cleared for publication, and published.

        <SNIPPED>    

    Sincerely,   The HubPages Team

    So I guess your free to check it out if you want....(talk about pressure, I hope it is up to the standard of the hype it and I have caused.)

    I hope you enjoy it...

    thanks again for the support,
    Mikel

      Not to be the bearer of more bad news but since you reproduced their e-mail to you and it included a link to your own hub they COULD hit you again by banning you from the forum for self-promotion.
      Then again, maybe they won't notice you as much as I get noticed by everyone.

      Mikel,

      I am extremely happy to see that it is no longer flagged and is published. It is a great article and wonderful work.
      You deserve all the recognition you can get.

      Thank you for being a soldier my dear friend,

      Kerry

        I found the above very interesting.  It must mean that HP feels it is more important to monitor forums 24/7 than to answer e-mails about specific hubs. Interesting.

          I'm not sure that's the case.  Mikel had emailed them about his Hub so it's just as likely the resolution came from that.

            I'm referring to the fact that they just today snipped the link to the hub in question out of the posting.  Sorry, didn't mean to be confusing.

              I edited the link to the hub  out and typed <snipped> in it's place not HP.

    Congrats, I'm glad it worked out for you! I'm off to read it.

    Edit:  I just read it and left a comment! Wow! I don't think you have to worry about it living up to the hype.  It's a fantastic article and I'm glad I got the chance to read it.

    Wow, what a great piece of writing. After having a chance to read it, I can't believe anyone flagged it.

  5. lakeerieartists profile image74
    lakeerieartistsposted 8 years ago

    I think this is a perfect example of the way flagging works.  If someone does flag something and it shouldn't be flagged, the Hubpages staff will let it be published.  If it is flagged properly and should not be seen, Hubpages staff will take it down.

    Glad your article passed muster.  smile

    1. Marisa Wright profile image96
      Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Actually it's not an example of that at all.  If "someone" (i.e. another Hubber) flags something, you don't know about it, because your Hub stays published. 

      It's only AFTER the HP team have looked at it, and decided there's a problem, that it will get unpublished.

      So in this case, the HP team flagged and unpublished it, Mikel made some changes, and it's now been approved.

      1. lakeerieartists profile image74
        lakeerieartistsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Sorry, I thought that is was okayed without changes.  You are right.  smile  My point was that it is the Hub staff that makes the decisions not the Hubbers.

        1. wsp2469 profile image59
          wsp2469posted 8 years agoin reply to this

          What could have happened is some dumb-ass hubber could have flagged it.  This would have brought it to the attention of the admin.  The admin. then decided to pull it off the air and sent him an e-mail telling him what HP "rule" he broke.
          Then he either won a debate with them OR changed something and they eventually republished it.
          it is also possible that in a normal day of checking out our hubs the admin saw something and flagged it directly.
          Trust me, marisa was right.  No matter how much someone does not like you or how often they flag your hub, your hub will remain on the air if admin doesn't think there is anything wrong with it.

        2. Marisa Wright profile image96
          Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Lake, your original post implied that it had been unpublished due to a Hubber's complaint, THEN investigated and cleared.  That would never happen.

          1. lakeerieartists profile image74
            lakeerieartistsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

            Okay, what I am trying to say is that no matter how the Hub comes to the Hub staff's attention, it is the staff who has the authority to make the decision regarding whether a hub should stay published or not.

            So hubbers can complain about hubs, but they cannot take them down.  Only staff can.  However, hubbers can flag substandard hubs.

    I have a semi-related question...

    Are comments about hubs published before they are approved by the author?

    Because I have a comment about a comment someone else made, that I haven't approved yet?

      Thats up to you lad you can set the comments to requiere your approval in the Comments Box edit mode.

    2. wsp2469 profile image59
      wsp2469posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I belive you have complete approval on whether or not comments are published.  Because of this you can read their comments without posting/publishing them and in theory you could even post a comment saying:
      Mikle said blah blah blah but I didn't want to bore my readers by publishing the whole comment.  As far as I'm concerned blah blah blah.
      I hope that made sense in print.  My point is if you want the last word you can have it.

      1. Mikel G Roberts profile image77
        Mikel G Robertsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        I believe you have misunderstood....I am saying I had a comment not yet approved commented on by someone else...

          wsp2469posted 8 years agoin reply to this

          ok well then turn around my answer and you'll see how it was done.
          They read it and did not approve it but commented on it because they had read it.

          1. Mikel G Roberts profile image77
            Mikel G Robertsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

    1. Mikel G Roberts profile image77
      Mikel G Robertsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      And since it appears that not yet approved comments cannot be seen by the general public...how did someone see one and comment on it?

        rmcrayneposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Did you change your settings?  I just posted a comment and it showed immediately.  There was not the usual message about 'your comment will not be seen until approved'.

        Outstanding hub.  And nearly perfect re:  typos and grammer.  Quite a feat.

                  This is akin to saying, I dont care to try and communicate effectively, I am too busy for spellcheck and I do not respect my readers time

                  There is a difference between being a perfectionist and disregarding even the most basic attempts of professionalism.

                  Up on the left corner of your hub you have three places to click: edit- stats- and- delete.

                  Or you can do it, editing your profile, I think.

                  I don't use it ,so I don't remember , but it's one or the other.

    You stood your ground...even when it got messy and in the trenches...and have served us well...in service to us...so you deserve whatever title you want to go by while you served. Personally...I like Defender...but Warrior...is equally justified...Obviously...you have to be a well-trained killer to survive and accomplish the task at hand. Someone has to do it...on the face of this stupid planet...where we all can't get along! I am just grateful for the proud men and women that step up to the cause!

    BTW...did you ever answer A Texan's response...there are a few...a proud few...who go by the title "Marine"...We have quite a few Marines/Always Marines on here...and they served as "Marines"...not soldiers. There is nothing wrong with the word "Soldier"...However, a "Marine"...is a "Marine"...and that's plenty of a definition for them...for sure! big_smile
