I'm just asking because I need to know if I should flag them or not for the HP team to look at. I used to think they were okay, if the nipples didn't show. But recently I thought the policy changed and all the Indian Auntie Hubs went running for the hills. But I just saw a few new ones.
So If I see a tasteful grouping of bikini pics, no text at all, do I flag or not for the HubPages team.
SunSeven you've been posting pretty sweet earnings lately, are they from picture hubs?
Totally! Just do it like NIKE would say, if you are sure they are spam
I flag things that I feel fit the given definitions of spam or low-quality. (as stated in the descriptions that pop up on the flag screen)
If not one of the above and I still find the Hub seems to really be lacking, I vote it down.
SunSeven - I just checked out your Posh & Becks hub and it is great, and the photos are lovely. Do you mind if I ask - do you get the magazine / photographers permission to use them, or do yo just go ahead and use them anyway. I'm guessing that 'Brand Beckham' do not mind the photos being used as it is all promotion to benefit them.
I see so many hubs with great photos, pretty models, famous actors, and I haven't really got my head around how the copyright works.
Its a grey area, actually. My policy is use them, what they need is publicity, and they get it. And if its a photographers issue they will let you know if they see them and have any objection. If they have any issues you can always take them down. Till then let it stay posted with proper courtesy text.
Thanks Relache. I just don't like to make work for the team or be overly critical. Hub Hopping today was a pretty miserable experience. Couldn't take too much of it.
Cool thanks - I've had a look through for some photos of a rather sexy tennis player's bum for my own personal enjoyment - And thought 'what a great hub' . I'm sure his PR people wouldn't mind - if he doesn't like people to look at his bottom he shouldn't wear such tight shorts . Of course if I did do a hub it would be text rich, and the photos would only be there to enhance the quality of the article
The hubs with just a few pictures on it don't have any content or quality and should be flagged in my opinion. They are too easy to throw up quickly. At least put some text in there like commentary on the photos.

Lately as I hubhop, I am finding lots of photo only hubs. Are these considered low quality? It would seem that hubs need to have text of some kind besides a title. I started out flagging them as low quality, but I don't...

I don't go around looking for Hubs to flag, but when I come across something with glaring issues I try to be a good HP citizen and alert staff. They have, after all, continuously preached about the importance of...

I had a conversation with a new online writer and I realized what I recommended is a bit more specific than I used to be based on what I've seen be successful. I'm in the middle of refreshing several Hubs (150 to...

Want to see some amazing low quality hubs? Go to the top of the page, click hubbers, then click "latest". There will be a few good ones but at least half are spam and many hubs are just a few sentences, often...
