I Was Slammed. All My Hubs "Needs Revision"

    Wag The Dogposted 7 years ago

    I woke up this morning to find that I have been slammed.  Shut down.  Pink Lined... 

    All my hubs taken off line with: "Needs Revision"  for "Adult/Mature Content".  Not one of them passed HP Muster.

    Granted, I had some hubs that consist of hot pics and bios, they may have been questionable and in need of "Revision", but for the most part, they were no worse than many of the other "Hot/Sexy Hub" to be found on this site, and I was working on bringing them up to snuff.

    But many of my other hubs, such as the one on flight jackets, or the one on combat boots,  were as clean as the wind driven snow, yet they are now also tagged to be in need of revision for adult/mature content.

    It looks as if someone with some HP clout doesn't like me and wants me to go away.

    If this is the case, drop me a line.  I am sure that we can work things out.  I enjoy HP, and do not wish to leave, but if all of my hubs are going to be pink lined, and I am forbidden to post or create pages, there is no point in me sticking around.

    I look forward to hearing from you and apologize for upsetting you so.

      Did you email HP and ask them why? It could be a glitch.

        No, I did not.  I thought this "Help" forum was the place to contact them.

              not really to be honest, i have just read what you have written, i know that there are certain rules, maybe you just crossed the line.......  maybe other hubbers may know about these things better than i .....

                Not only does it seem that I crossed it, but that I burnt and spit apon it as well.

                As this is the first time that you have heard of such a case, let me also be the first to tell you, that it is not fun...  LOL

                    As I stated above, some of my hubs were as pure as the wind driven snow.  And it seems to me that I must have upset someone with HP clout, for all of my hubs to be taken down.  But I am not sure.  That is why I asked...

                  It's not the first time, did you miss all the other Hubbers who were caught by the automated filter? 

                  I assumed the filter was run across the whole site at once, but maybe it's still working its way through.

                  HubPages say they're working their way through all the Hubs that were caught by the filter (which they agree erred on the safe side).  However, you can imagine it's picked up a lot of Hubs by people who aren't around any more, as well as those by active Hubbers.  They've asked active Hubbers to email them to request a review of any Hubs that have been taken down.

                  If you look through the forums you'll find plenty of Hubber who posted in high dudgeon, just like you - and once they contacted the team, most of their Hubs were reinstated intact or with revisions.

    There's a thread somewhere on here about others having the same thing happen to them...I know my husband had many of his taken down, also.

    Someone else can explain it better than I can--it's something to do with a new "thingie" ( big_smile ) that is automatically pulling hubs, and then the HP staff has to review them, and make sure they were pulled for the right reasons. 

    If they weren't, the hubs are being re-instated.

    Like I said, someone else will have to come along and explain it better...sorry!  smile

    There's a standards revision underway thanks to changes in policy interpretation and enforcement from Google.  It would seem you didn't see the announcement posted to the official announcement thread.  Big G has gotten tougher on what visually and textually is considered adult or inappropriate thus so has HubPages.  It's been ongoing for several weeks now.


    And this is definitely not the thread for contacting admin about your account issues.  None of us here can get a Hub unpublished, or republished again.

      Relache, the new change only involves advert removal for sites which do not pass Googles ToS, this actually reduces the number of hubs which actually need to be unpublished, since borderline hubs (ie an intellectual hub about pornography) do not need to be lumped in with pornnographic hubs, which would happen if Google took an overview look of the site.

    Wag, you do seem to try and contribute often, so it is a shame your hubs have been taken down.

    I suggest emailing team@hubpages.com with the Hubs which are definitely not adult orientated, and then asking tehm to tell you what is wrong with one of the actual adultish hubs (Give htem an example)

    Hubpages are normally happy to review hubs on request, so they will more than liikely be able to advise you on what caused these hubs to be flagged.

    If you have a large number of adultish hubs they might have jsut lazily decided to blanket unpublish all of your hubs!

    This happened to me a while back on an account that I actually got banned on.  For the most part, everything was clean.  Yeah, I had some foul language here and there in a handful of them but past that they were fine.  I just cleaned up some, not all, of the language and slightly changed the rest.  By slightly changing, I mean changing 'can't' to 'cannot'.  Then I finally was able to get them all back up.  It was a pain in the ass, and I never really found out why it even happened.  I guess I pissed off the wrong person with something.

    Good Luck!

    This is the reason I like HubPages. If you want to do porn give Hustler  a call.  Or start your own site of pushing nudity or what ever you want.

      Agreed, plenty of websites out there focused on the adult industry, I don't mind seeing hubs with pictures of half dressed ladies if there is also an interesting article about it though.

      Sometimes strong imagery can provide a real kick to a story, for isntance the film Cashback which I watched this week, a whole lot of nudity in it, but the story itself was fantastic, and the nudity was critical in conveying the story.
