      i had that exact same problem before i published my kick ass movie review, as it kept popping up as adult content before I published it.  therefore, i had to e-mail the hubpages staff to find out exactly why they found my content so adult oriented and ask for their advice.  my only advice to you is to do the same.  just contact the hubpages administrators and ask them to look at your hub, and tell you what exactly is causing it to be flagged as adult content.  chances are it'll either be a computer error like it was for me (because the film i was reviewing was called "kick-ass" so the word "ass" automatically registered my hub as adult content), or they'll just merely suggest changes you can make.

      I don't know if you can see the photos but if you do, please help answer the question, sunforged. I am in deep sh*t at the moment. hmm

    seems like it obviously isnt - especially, considering the auntie hubs all over this site .. seems two image changes would make any chance of such a flag sticking.

    doubt those two images really make a difference to your viewers but must have bothered a few prudes

    You didnt get an email from HP?

      I did but the person over the other site seemed to be on a vengeful spree. Each time I asked a question, another of my hubs get flagged. I am almost afraid to ask now. sad

        Hp has a good mod team - come morning you should be able to correct the problem with a few emails.

        What other site?

            I still dont get it, but I think you can feel confident that your article on Ubuntu! isnt adult content and once a human can rveiew and speak with you the problem will be solved

              The hub has been reviewed and still deemed inappropriate. At least, they were alright about my armpits. hmm

    lol If you read your TOS agreement.... you will find that the display of ape-ish armpits is forbidden! yikes

    I wouldn't be surprised if you have to change some of the pictures you've chosen to include with that Hub

    Especially the first one.

      Denseposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      You were right relache. Given that I've seen so many pictures of women in underwear in other's hubs, do I understand that the reason it's unacceptable is because the shape of the bum is showing through the underwear?
      It can't be the underwear and backside alone. I have seen more offending pictures in other people's hubs. hmm

        MyWebsposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Based upon an email to me from staff underwear, lingerie and pics that focus solely on one body part like the rear end or breasts are a no go. So your first pic fails on two counts: underwear and a backside closeup.

        Staff -> "Generally, images that show individuals (men and women) in underwear/lingerie only are provocative, but women in bathing suits are acceptable. Images that focus only on one portion of the body or where the subject is posed in a sexually suggestive position are also not acceptable. In other words, pictures where a woman's head and legs are cropped out so that her breasts fill the frame are not acceptable."

        They also referenced Google's new definition of  'Adult content': https://www.google.com/adsense/support/ … wer=105957

        Hopefully there is nothing wrong with me posting staff's message from a email to me concerning their new policy. Clearly others need to know this information. While I know it is normally considered to be in bad taste to post email messages I think in this case it should be acceptable since it is about a policy that applies to us all. Please forgive me if I'm wrong. At the time my hub was flagged HubPages's TOU  had not been updated to reflect their new policy, and it still hasn't been changed even now 2 weeks later.

          Thanks MyWebs for posting this. You just helped the staff to explain that in an easy to understand way. And I'd been trying to get them to be less economical with words. hmm

    I recently had a couple of my hubs(photo) flagged for adult content as well.

    Then I found out that HubPages has tightened their content guidelines, as far as women in swimsuits.

    They are no longer allowing "thong" type shots or photos. Provocative positions or stances will also flag as adult content.

    So, be advised. smile

      You should have warned me earlier, my friend. /)

        I just learned about it this pass weekend. HubPages ripped down two of my most visited pages. I watched as my traffic died and my clicks begin to disappear.

        Since there is a limited staff on on the weekend, I lost them for two days. If I seem a little put out, I am, because the traffic to these hubs is close to about 400 views a day, each. wink hmm
