I received a message from HubPages saying I had a link on one of my hubs that led to a site that was noit allowed. They said I have two days to fix the problem. I am not complaining about the notification or that I had to remove the link.
My problem was having to search through the hub to find the link. My suggestion is to have the links highlighted similar to the bad or broken links highlight along with a notification on our homepage about the link.
It doesn't work like "broken" links, where it highlights yellow?
Edit: I've not heard of links not allowed, which is why I asked.
It was on an old hub of mine. Most likely it is not allowed under the new TOS. Part of the email notification I got was:
As I wrote earlier, it is not a complaint about having to remove the link but only because I had to search it out.
It doesn't work like broken links links that we see on our account page and homepage.
I don't mean on the accounts page. I mean in the hub itself. Broken links show up highlighted yellow.
Sorry, SirDent, didn't think to point out where it was. If you still need help I can locate it for you.
Er... could we clarify this? What kinds of links are disallowed? Only asking because I haven't heard of such a thing, and I don't want to get into trouble

I've had a notification of a broken link on my hub 'Lest We Forget' but there is nothing highlighted. What is going on? I can't correct it if I don't know what it is!

Whether I agree with HP's new policies or not, I respect the site's right to set their own rules. However, I think one of the reasons Hubbers are getting upset isthey're getting warnings based on rules they don't...

Is it all right to put a direct download link in a hub or is that considered as promoting an illegal activity? I wanted to add a link to where some songs mentioned in my article can be downloaded directly.
