I copied the whole article onto another title and now the article appears as a duplicate when I have already deleted the original article.
Has anyone encountered this before?
Thanks a lot.
Never encountered it before, but nothing you submit to the internet is ever permanently deleted. Since you wrote the original article, I would email HP staff and explain the situation to them. Perhaps they can fix it?
You can change the title of the hub while editing. You need not copy and paste it to a new hub just for the sake of title change. Or do you mean you wanted to change the url and hence you created a new hub?
It can happen to the hub you unpublished for few days and republish it again. It will show it as a copied hub. It happens because old content remains in the catched memory and when software used by hubpages tries to match this content with already available content it shows the content as copied content. Only way out is to inform this problem to HP staff.

I'm so angry. Today I got the little red circled C warning me my content was stolen. A quick scan in the plaguirism checker showed that someone had copied one of my game guides word for word onto their site. Do they not...
