    I tried to post my very first HUB, a simple poem with a photo and I got this message:

    Sorry, because of rule violations associated with your account or ip address, permission to publish new hubs has been revoked. You can still edit your existing hubs and save your changes to this hub by clicking the done editing button. Your right to publish may automatically be restored through time and adherence to the HubPages rules. Fixing or deleting existing flagged hubs may also help.

    How could I have violated any rules already? I only posted some comments after reading other HUbbers work. Whats the deal here?

      As you can see, the notice does not say that you have necessarily committed any rule violations. It may be associated with the IP address without you being at fault, such as if you are using a shared computer or a dynamic IP address previously assigned to others. Contacting HubPages may help clear up the matter rather quickly.

      You can know by alerting message if something wrong in hub then it comes on your hub page.

    I suggest you check this out:

    Also, go to the help page by clicking on the help menu item on the top right.  Read through the rules.

    If you have questions, contact hubpages directly:

    I think the problem you are experiencing has more to do with your Ip address than with what you as a hubber has done.

    I suggest that you contact hubpages directly via the contact link provided by SteveoMc.

    Hope that helps

    Okay, thanks all...lots of good feedback and suggestions. I will try to make contact with HubPages as suggested by SteveoMc.  Not tecchie enough to know how to identify my IP address or how to fix it if thats the problem. But at least I know there's good folks here willing to help. Its a learning curve I guess...nothing good is easy!!

      This is for PC's running XP, other windows OS's are similar.

      Finding your ip address is pretty simple, there are a couple of ways.  If you are on a wireless network, open your wireless dialogue box, click on support and there it is.

      You can also click on the  start menu, choose run, type in cmd, it will open a command prompt window, type in:  ipconfig, press enter.  The result will display your ip address.

          Yes, of course, is a really easy way to do it.......Duh!   Sometimes I have to laugh at myself for making the simple as complicated as possible.   LOL

    Ok guys, that little website worked great. So I have my IP, a bunch of numbers...but then it says "possible proxy detected and a bunch more words and numbers. So I should just wait and see what HUB HELP tells me? At least I now have my IP incase thats the problem. BTW, I'm just on a regular homebased XP PC.

      A proxy server can be used to disguise the IP address, like to browse anonymously.

    It may sometimes seem confusing but will eventually come all right.
