If I hit the "flag" button, will the Hubber of the Hub know it who flagged him or her? Or is the flagger completely anomoyous?
Hub staff, please let me know. Thanks.
I flag stuff all the time.
What difference does it make if the hubber knows who flagged it?
I mean, flagging only asks a moderator to view the hub for any violations that might have been perceived.
If someone accidentally stepped over the rules, then I would think that they would be glad it was found?
Granted, there is a lot of stuff that can be flagged, but seriously, why should it matter. You're helping the community and the hubber.
most answers here have assumed all hubbers have the best of intentions, and most probably do - but there are many hubs that are purely promotional, or copied entirely from other places, and being anon when flagging prevents retaliation
Cagsil-- I agree I'd sooner have some tell em to fix it, than to be me... or rather no, I'd sooner improve BEFORE someone flagged me.
As far as I know yes it is anonymous
I have no problem with criticism on my hubs. If I have a bunch of things wrong with or if it violates some rule, and staff doesn't see it, then I would rather be protected.
To me it's a win-win.
It's completely anonymous. And it won't actually do anything - other than bring it to the staff's attention.
Only a staff member can unpublish/ban or otherwise change a user or hub status.
So you've got nothing to worry about.

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

I think it is vital that when someone flags your hub you are told who did it and why. If someone complained about you at work, protocol dictates that the person is supposed to go to you first and let you know that they are having a problem with you. They shouldn't just complain to the boss about...

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and hopefully take this hubpages back to the top, where it belongs.The problem is...

The question of whether poetry Hubs should have 400-word minimums came up in this thread a few minutes ago:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/70203#post1528809I've been puzzling about what to do with poetry Hubs I've found while hopping. I haven't flagged any of them, because poetry is a unique...

This forum is a place for you to post hubs that you think are clearly of low quality and need flagging. Committed hubbers should follow this forum and check these hubs posted for quality when they have the time. If a hub has been clearly copied (for example from a PDF file that the plagiarism...

I'm not sure if I have mentioned this before here, so: it would REALLY help if we got feedback on stuff we flag - if only on the stuff that admins decide does NOT warrant action. Many times I have been hesitant to flag because I'm not sure - just a little feedback would make me much...
