I need help - Can someone please explain what is "too sexually explicit" on the list below. One of my hubs has been shut down.
Title- "Butt Naked Ice Swimming" No links to adult sites that I'm aware of. Reviewed all videos and everyone is clothed!
1st picture - A couple with backs turned in water up to their butts with stocking caps only. 2nd picture - A distance (far off) picture of two men, backs turned fully nude. 3rd picture - A side view of a lady wearing a bra and bikini thong.
I might add that I've seen pictures revealing so much more, however, what would have gotten my hub shutdown?
oh really? that surprises me. i would definitely want to know why myself. sorry about that. in that case, i will go take a look at your hubs.
edited to add: sorry about that. as you said, they shut down your hub, so i couldn't see it. in any case, it probably was the fully nude men that did it. i agree with DS, just do some careful cropping and see if they will republish it.
There's nothing sexually explicit, and no profanity. So that leaves the pictures I described. I'm going to take everyone's advice and changed those. And there is one link that is a page full of links to other sites, maybe I'll remove that as well.
Hi Marisa, I missed this one previously! When the hub was up it had ads for swimming and Workout gyms there was nothing indicating that anything was inappropriate with what was written.
However, I've resubmitted the hub alone with sending an e-mail request that if the changes that I made were not satisfactory to please provide a more specific e-mail detailing what needed to be changed! So we will see! I will definite let everyone know if its the words "butt naked", if that's the case there should be a lot of editing going on.
Actually, Money, I did catch a glimpse of that hub of yours (I think I even tried leaving a comment, but I don't suppose you got it?). I thought it was very tastefully done, the pics were completely relevant to your topic and hardly seemed 'profane' in any way. But I guess, it's HP team that makes the final decisions and they must have reasons for them, so it leaves you with little choice but to abide by them. Just wanted to let you know it was a well done hub in any case!
It's a little more complicated than that Mamelody! There was no profanity and no sexually explicit words in my writing. And I don't think I would have an overall hubscore of 95 if HP did not like my writing! But, thanks for commenting...
I read the hub before it was shut down. One photo had 2 men, at a distance, butt cracks showing. I find it difficult to believe that if an actual person, like a HubPages staff member looked at the hub, that there was anything at all offensive about the hub.
LOL, I'm waiting for a response from the HP Team to avoid having to redo the hub all over again. But all the suggestions have been fully noted and will be taken in to consideration since they all still indicate the same thing.
I submitted this hub to delishaby and got an email back saying some of the photos were blurry and my hub could not be moved until I fixed them. However, in edit mode, I don't get a blurry photo warning. They...
When our hubs were once chosen, we had a way to see what was supposed to be fixed before it appeared on a niche site. Now I don't see anything like that. It could be me, but there was a way to see what they wanted added...
Hi,I published this hub last night. This morning, I see a blank space where the "H" for featured usually goes. I've never seen this happen before. Is the hub being moderated for some reason? I have not...
