I dont understand how all my work could just have been erased. My impression was that once you click on the window to save your work then it is saved, even if you dont click the button that says 'saved unpublished'. But in fact i did save my hub unpublished as well, just to be sure. Then i went back to do some more editing, and left again. When i came back it was all gone, because i clicked on the window that said you may lose some or all your work.
I didnt bother reading it because my work was 'already saved'. Why would HP even make it possible for all your work to be lost? I dont see the point. I wrote a long piece where i put a lot of emotion in and its all gone now. Now i have to do it all over again but it wont be spontaneous anymore. It was spontaneous the first time. Now it will just be a copy. You can tell me to save my work in the future, but its already to late for that.
Im pretty disgusted right now.
The editor regularly makes timed backups, which you can preview and then retrieve.
WE is right. Open your text box in your hub. At the bottom click recover draft.
That happened to me one day last week, but when I closed my browser and re-opened the hub, it was all back. Try that.
Let us know when you have managed to retrieve it... just in case of a hp glitch
For future reference, you might want to use your word or woks programs to save your work. I put all of my work on my Microsoft Word works processor first. That way you can edit your work rapidly, and see it as a whole when it's finished. Just a thought, hope it helps.
I always write directly in to Hubpages and have never had a problem. Definitely try to use the recover draft tool though.
Maybe write your hubs in word and save them in your documents folder - then you can always go back and copy and paste - good luck
Nope. All gone. The draft recovery saved about one sentence of the longest hub i ever wrote. The window with the most writing was gone completely. Oh well.
Bahahaha you wont believe this. Prepare to be dumbfounded by stupidity. I started a the hub on my YK account, but then decided to do the hub on this account. So all along i was looking at the hub in the wrong account! The hub in this account is still all there! *decides to never show face in forum again*
Brain farts happen to us all, at times!
A slightly bruised ego is far better than losing your hard work - at least you know how to laugh at yourself, always a good trait to have
Lol exactly. Losing writing is the most annoying thing ever, so if i have to choose between not recovering it or looking like a complete fool its a no contest for me.
You don't look a complete fool, you are just more honest than loads of others here, including me !! This kind of thing happens to me all the time and I just resign myelf to the fact that I have lost it, put it somewhere else or whatever. Glad you found it.
it happens. glad to see it's still alive.
That's a relief... you can bet your bottom dollar that there have been a few people who have learned a bit more from this thread - so has been a great learning experience for the hubpages community
Next time be careful before shouting "rape" and "murder"!
I once left my work without saving because window panel just froze for some reason and it was saved automatically all right. HubPages make it super easy to create articles. You can do it in your sleep! Just don't forget to push publish button.
This is not unprecented. Someone reported that all of his hubs were gone, just couldn't find them no matter what. I suggested that maybe there was a second account and he had logged into the wrong one. The administrator finally confirmed that there was a second account, and the hubs were still there. The OP was never heard from again.
Hahaha thats hilarious! Kinda feel for the guy though...
I am very happy for you that you found your work. I had a large websight some years ago when I tried to write the first time. I had everything there. When it crashed I truly lost everything except the few I had submitted to other people's sites. I recovered maybe ten writes total.
What I learned from this? Save in multiple places and always print because you just never know what will happen.

There are two newly discovered hubbers who have only posted raw translations by using online translating tool, what they did was merely copy and paste the results without doing any further modifications. From the comments they replied, you can tell they don't really understand much English. Even...

I know thats a bit harsh but come on.I was just hub hopping and every 6 out of ten hubs were total duplicate content. So many of them were taken right from Wikipedia.Then we hear "why is my score so low". It is great that hubpages started hub hopping. Now we can see what...

So .... I was just flagged for a hub I wrote last night. It was flagged as a duplicate.I didn't even cite anything in this hub. I quoted a bunch of stuff in my Anaconda piece and none of it was flagged as duplicate, so someone must have copied and pasted my new hub. Everything on...

I recently had a profile score of 79 and I was recieving a lot of traffic to my hubs with no adsense clicks. Until this morning,I logged in to check my profile and account and my profile score had dramatically dropped to 58 with no incoming traffic. Does anyone know why this is or am I doing...

Is there a way to download my hubs?I was just thinking, usually I make sure I copy and paste my hubs into Word, or write them in word beforehand - either way, I make sure I save them. But recently I haven't been. I know with facebook you can download your profile, which is all your photos, photos...

This is really not a big deal, but I am curious why there are two separate word counts for hubs. I am editing a hub and the new feature shows a word count of 1287. When I click on "done editing" and then look at the word count under the "stats/hub metrics" it shows...
