I have been on Hubpages with AdSense for years. I like getting the monetary trickle my ads have in conjunction with the site traffic. I got an email yesterday or this morning from AdSense expressing that I am at risk of not getting anymore ad payments if a technical issue is not resolved. After logging into AdSense to see what this was about, I was immediately given a red banner across the top of my AdSense Dashboard telling me that I did not have a file named "ads.txt" on my site. If this issue does not get resolved, I am at risk of not serving ads, and therefore I woun't get ad revenue.
So, as I am an content author, and not a site host or web master for my content here on HubPages (and HowTheyPlay), how do I put this file on my page?
I wanted to bring this up to HubPage staff, and I found a page under Help that says that technical questions and support are only done through email, but I was not provided an email to contact. If someone can point me towards support, that would be great too.
Without monetization, my draw to this product all but disappears. I don't make a habit of authoring and curating content which takes hours at a time, just to give it all away.
This may not actually be an issue. After closer inspection of all the sites I have in my AdSense, there was an old Domain I no longer have hosted anywhere. I have removed it, and I will see if I that will quite the AdSense warnings I am getting.

Adsense sent me a message that says that my publisher ID is not in my Hubpages and HowTheyPlay ads.text files. My earnings are fine generally, not too concerned, just wanted to bring the issue to your attention.

Please also do same with themaven.net/ads.txt file.Google AdSense appears to be highly agitated that this has not been done.
