I Got The Message that all my hubs needs revision. But i dont know why.Can anyone help me?
Are they coppied content? If they're posted on other sites, it will show CC. Or are they adult content ? Porn?
I am so sorry Moondive.
I think it was because the English was poor but as you said its your second language.
Isn't there anyone near you who can help you revise them? They were good informative hubs and no, they weren't copied.
They unpublished one of mine but didn't give a specific reason. I just give up with them. They make no sense, their guidelines are totally subjective and without reason.
Poppa, I'm sure we can help you work out what the problem was. Or you can email the HubPages team and ask them to explain.
Did you have more than two links to the same website?
Did you use swear words?
Were there any sex-related words, or any nude pictures?
Thanks:))) But i cant ask from you to translate my hubs:)) It is to difficult:)
I can't help you much then. I Understand a bit of Italian.
Sent me the text of one of your hubs via e-mail and maybe I can do something for you.
Listen to haunty! This is a great place to improve your skills. You might even note at the top of your hubs that you are trying to improve your English and will be editing as you go, as you learn.
People love to help, if you say, My English is not so good yet, but I am learning, people will help, instead of flag.
I thought of something along the lines of correcting your mistakes. Someone shouldn't stop writing just because their English is not perfect. I've seen people going from terrible to good English here on hubpages.
But it's up to you to decide. You can mail me any time.
It might help if you go to one of the major pen pal networks and converse with people regularly in English, it's how I spruced up my German last time I went traveling!
I'm sorry to hear about what's happened with your hubs. How many were there? I have a lot of experience with helping people for whom English is a second language with their writing. I do a lot of "translating" for some of my clients already.
If you would like some help on this front, I would be glad to assist you with some of them Drop me an email if you'd like.
And no worries! Don't get discouraged! Let this be a learning experience, and let's get your hubs back up!!
I am happy to volunteer - if you want to send me a Hub or two, I will be happy to edit them for you. I know how difficult it is to write in a second language, so we will see if we can help you out
EDIT: Thanks, Thoughtful Spot - I meant the English version - my Italian is not great
Hey Sufi..How many languages do you speak?
Not much to be impressed about, really - Apart from speaking conversational Greek, I can read French reasonably well and can read a little Italian and Spanish . As for speaking...no chance-I have no talent for languages
moondive - just about to e-mail you.
I'll jump in to! Feel free to email me a hub, and I'll see what I can do. I can't translate from Italian, but if you send me the English version, I'll see what I can do to assist w/ the grammar and syntax.
I'm alright w/ writing in English, but writing online is like a whole other language to me... everyone here has been so kind to help w/ my questions... I'd love to "pay it forward" so to speak.
Exactly! Me too. I love this community.
All right!! We've got tons of helpful editors here! Moondive, I also forgot to specify that I'll need the English version of a hub.
Also, you've got mail!
You'll have all your hubs back before you know it
Im sorry about that, but i just heard of someone who deleted all their hubs by accident, and she had over 100 and over 200 followers! So at least that didnt happen to you
*raises an eyebrow* How on EARTH does one "accidentally" delete all their Hubs? I thought you had to go and unpublish them one by one?
If you are deleting them yourself, you do have to go one-by-one, so either this person had a prolonged fugue state involving delete buttons, or they wrote admin and asked to have the account shut down and then had an attack of remorse.
Either way, I find it unlikely that anything so profound as the deletion or removeal of 100 hubs to be an accident.
LOL...I like your style, relache. I also find it difficult to believe.
It's just now that I've noticed on the second page that several have asked the same question that came to my mind.
Sometimes people unpublish their hubs and threaten to leave. Occasionally they get embarrassed at their own flouncey behaviour so I guess saying that they accidentally deleted them is the next step in a long list of lies.
They accidentally hit delete 100 times on 100 hubs?
Thanks everyone my hubs are on English but on very bad English:)
You do, They must have changed their minds, or closed their account lol!
I am also willing to volunteer. (English version)
Several years ago in an English Comp class I had to read & respond to a classmates essays where English was her second language. Her first was Korean! It wasn't easy, but when you speak English as a first language you learn to understand what is being said through a foreign language.
Moondive if you're wondering how to send the hubs, just copy/paste the text box contents into an email and send one to each of us.
Open up our profiles, and just under our photos is a contact button. Hit that and it opens an email form and copy/paste the stuff in there.
We'll correct them and send them straight back via email. Then all you have to do is copy/paste the corrected work back into capsules.
Guys you are great I alredy do that with some of my hubs. Thanks once again!!!
I haven't deleted a hub...yet!
What I wonder is, if you accidentally hit the delete button, does it delete immediately, or does it first ask you "Are you sure you want to delete this hub?"
Wow you have so many people offering to help you. Honestly if I were you I would accept all their help until your English gets a bit better. They will do a great job for you.
Nor me! I've been checking my inbox all the time waiting for an email from you.
Please send me mail on email@example.com and i will replay.
Enyone who whants to help:)
I just sent mine back to you. I would offer to do another, but it's time for bed. I will check with you again tomorrow, okay?
Hi all! I jump in here because I received comments to my hubs and comments, that my English would be poor. I know it is not perfect, but I can say what I want to express and I believe it is understandable. English is my third language. I think that people complain about my poor English, because they don't want to understand what I am writing, because I don't write what people want to hear. Can you please read some of my hubs and comments and tell me frankly what you think. There are very few comments to my hubs, so maybe you can write there... That would be of great help. Thank you!
Which one of your hubs do people complain about? I've read the addiction one and there doesn't appear to be much problem with that.
Your english seems fine, your presentation could do with a littl emore spacing though, paragraphs are your friend
Moondive - I haven't gotten anything from you yet either. You can use the contact on my profile to email me one. I'm home w/ my boys today, and won't have a lot of freetime, but, I should have a minute on lunch break at work tomorrow, and would be happy to look it over then.
Hi thanks. Please can you send me mail on firstname.lastname@example.org and i will reply to you:) I got some problem to send mail via hubpages
I whant to say thanks to everyone who help mi with translation of my hubs!!! You are really great!!!

I'm sorry if this post offends anybody, but I am really getting tired of people who basically are non English speakers showing up, throwing a hub together without expending any effort to read the forums or the learning center to find out what they should be doing, and then asking for help to...

More and more, forum users are telling people that they do not have the required skills to write on Hubpages.Others, seem to believe there is a duty to defend the website's borders against incursions from the foreign hordes. In this case, "foreign" seems to involve anyone or...

Is hubpages in danger of being over-run by writers from India who can't write proper English? I went to a hubpages question yesterday, and half the answers were from Indian hubbers who didn't understand the question but felt compelled to answer it anyway.It's not just answers. More than half of the...

I am preparing my 100th hub, and for that I want to review 100 hubs written by other Hubbers. Please post links to hubs - your own or those of others - that you would want me to include. One link per post, please. I intend to review only one hub for each Hubber.

Hi. I have been a member for 14 years and have recently come back after about 8 years away. A lot of my hubs are pretty poor especially after being left for so long. Should i start a new account or just delete all the rubbish ones and continue creating content. Thanks
