      What do you mean by "as well"? Is HP outlawed elsewhere?

          You are right. Hubpages links are banned in many other places like propeller and karmalynx.But, I guess shetoldme works fine with HP till now.  I was able to submit a link at shetoldme today.

    i checked and there's quite a few but none with this particular topic. there was one that said they are not accepting new hubbers, is that it?

    i joined last year, so i'm not new there.

    umm well, there is def not a restriction against new hubbers registering, The site is run by one person and sometimes he gets behind on activating new registrants, its a manual process.

    also know plenty of hub based addresses are being added daily.

    the sites that banned hubpages were ones that didnt want self promoted works, shetoldme wants you to bookmark your own work.

    probably just a bug or a user error.

    Did you attempt to scoop a non-hubs URL and get accepted? otherwise its a pretty odd conclusion to think hubpages was "outlawed"

    When I first started with shetoldme I had a LlotT of trouble  getting a URL for my hub to work, so I emailed the webmaster.  He didn't have any advice other than to say "Keep trying".

    I did start a thread about it and posted my findings when I finally figured it out.  I'll see if I can find it.

    Okay, here it is:

    yep, site is just broken - not accepting any URLS - being a hubpages link has nothing to do with it

    Oh thank goodness I just discovered my inability to post. I thought I'd violated the TOS or samat, started looking for the partyvan.

    I noticed the issue a week ago. It seemed to not accept trackers when I did my links but the links went through without the tracker fine. Not sure what is up.

      This seemed to happen a couple of weeks ago, and they haven't allowed urls with trackers to be posted.  But the ordinary urls have loaded fine.

    I emailed the webmaster in regards to the error message Story URL is Not Functioning:

    Hello, thank you for your message regarding the URL checking system not working correctly. I'll reboot the server now, and you can try again, maybe it will work.
    If not tomorrow it should be resolved.
    Sorry for the inconvenience, I understand it can be frustrating, but don't worry, there's nothing wrong with your account.

    I don't think they banned Hubpages as I tried other regular sites as well and still got that error message.

    Is anyone able to submit anything to Shetoldme?

    I encountered the same problem awhile ago but didn't have time to investigate.  Glad it doesn't seem to be serious or targeted at hubbers.

    No, I can't submit anything either.  Thanks for investigating and letting us know, sporty.

      I'm new to HubPages, but not new to writing or to I posted my first articles there this morning and had no issues. So whatever issue was happening before is hopefully resolved.

    I tried posting a link to a hub recently on facebook and it wouldn't let me, after emailing them, they suggested I try emptying my browser cache, and quitting and restarting my browser. I did it and it worked. It might not be the problem dogging you there on Shetoldme, but hey - give it a try if you like...

    Shetoldme is not blocking hub pages. They like Hub Pages as it has a high Google page ranking in general.

    Guys, I got a reply from the webmaster there, he said that sometimes he needs to reboot the server so if you have a problem retry every few hours.  Hubpages is not banned there.
