Hey all, for some reason my profile has 'flag this profile' on it. I looked at the reasons but don't understand. Any comments would be appreciated..Thanks!
Yup, gotta agree with Cagsil. Mine has the link too.
As of yesterday people are encouraged to use this feature when they come across underage users or inappropriate content on profiles instead of the former practice of contacting hub staff via email.
Great ideal, I once reported a profile that was set up for e-mail scamming!
However, I'm curious to know...
What happens when you flag a profile?
Just, interested because if someone is mad at someone, it just seems like an easy way to be cruel
Hey Money Glitch, I am pretty sure that HubPages Staff treats them just like flagged hubs. They moderate them and see if they are as claimed or damaging. Then takes appropriate steps to protect itself.
Nice to see you in the forums again. Hope you are doing well.
I'm doing great, How are you today?
I think we have been missing each other by a couple of hours in the forums.
Thanks for your reply as well Rochelle!
Glad to hear and I'm doing well. Thank you for asking.
This is not possible. I am here on average for 15 hours a day, how we miss one another is only because one of us is absent.
Maybe in different forums at different times. I usually am following your responses by about 90 minutes on several posts.
It might have something to do with the time zones we live in too.
The staff reviews the hub for TOS violations. The flag itself does not hurt the hub writer, but a violation may.
If someone is flagging because they didn't like an (allowable) opinion or because they are "being mean" it isn't good for the person doing the flagging.
The staff has a huge amount of material to oversee-- so they like it when you flag something that honestly seems questionable to you, so they can act quickly.
There are "flag this profile" on all the profiles. The profiles could say or have links that are not moderated, because the profiles can have so many links without restrictions, except for two to each domain.
The words can possibly violate terms of service of HubPages or even GOOGLE Adsense, so to me, it is welcomed.
This is news for me. Where did you read this? I mean two domains restriction for profiles?
ok - thanks all. i only noticed it today - don't think it has been there very long.
It's a good idea. I once saw a profile that was not really a profile, but a personal attack on another hubber. It would have been a good one to flag.
I think this might be one reason the option was added.
I've seen a few that I thought could have stood being flagged. They had nothing but "titles" or URL's that led to - like - one, big, ad page. Some also involved the "Hubber" posting a bunch of spam on the forums too. Essentially, the whole profile was nothing but a major spam endeavor. It would have taken time to flag every "Hub", though (which may be why they did it). So now, people can flag in one, single, swoop.
Other than that, I can't really think of too many things that would make me want to flag any other kind of profile..... maybe if some really extremely, extremely, completey socially unacceptable and offensive profile showed up. Even if that happened, though, the HubPages team would be the ones to judge (and if it were bad enough that I'd even think about flagging it, I suspect there'd be a really good chance the HubPages team would find it objectionable too).
From the title, I thought you were asking us to flag a profile.
Would you like me to flag your profile? It is world cup fever, afterall!
I didn't notice this feature till you pointed it out. Really keeps you on your toes.
As others have already pointed out, this is way to flag profiles as opposed to just hubs.
What I don't get is why can we flag our own profile?

The full details of the change are outlined on our blog, but the gist is this:*We've added some new features, including background templates, the option to upload a custom background, and...

I am asking about google adsense, why are we reading about and experiencing so many glitches with adsense while some have it easy. Are Asian countries subjected to different treatment or its just a passing phase. I am told that I have inappropriate content....what a laugh! I am really curious...

I have come across some nudity on profile avatar. Is there any way to flag them or notify to HP team? I don't want to give the link here because of its nudity

It would be nice if we had the option to flag an entire profile, instead of just a single hub or post.
