Yet again we have threads on the forums complaining about Hubbers flagging Hubs.
The problem is that people confuse the two kinds of flag - the flag that Hubbers submit and the flag that HubPages issues.
I'm wondering whether one of those names could be changed?
If they're clearly called two different things, people are less likely to confuse them. Maybe the link for Hubbers could be changed to "rate or report".
We're constantly seeing people reading more into the word "flagging". "Report" says what it means - that the Hubber is just reporting a problem. We already use that word in the forums so it would be consistent.
That is a very good point and I agree. It would eliminate much confusion.
How about if what is now flagging by HubPages admin/system was called "moderated" instead? After all, that's what it is...
And that's how we refer to it internally (ie, around the office). Makes good sense to make this change. Thanks guys.
We're going to make this change, thanks for the suggestion.
Start from scratch and come up with new names.
Flagged is fine.
Perhaps we also need Flogged.
Somehow I don't think keeping a cat-o-nine-tails on my desk would improve my image.
I disagree. THat's the sort of thing that does famously for a lady's image.
But I think some people on the forum would rush to get flogged
Great ideas, thanks for suggesting & thanks for administering.
Way to go Marisa for a great idea and way to go HP staff for hopping right to it! That's what I call customer service!
Sounds fine to me:) Really still learning, about the do's and dont's!
"Report" is a better term, since that's how it's used elsewhere, like in the forums and such. Definitely eliminates any confusion. Good call Marisa.

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

I occasionally hub-hop, but most of the time I come away from it feeling like I haven't really accomplished much as far as "improving HubPages" goes.So tonight, just for laughs, I decided to type "mesothelioma" into the search box at the top of HubPages' homepage. I then sorted...
