My hub is an article helping curious couples find out what it's like going to a swingers club.
Before I post this kind of content I always search first and I found several swingers articles and a swingers category on hub pagess. In several of these articles it's obvious that hubpages is being spammed by the owner pretending to be a client...their hub gets published and has been for a long time now.
Yet, when I published my hub it was soon un-published and I got a warning that it's an adult hub and will be terminated if I don't fix it. My hub which is original, instructive, informative and interesting does not get the green light?!? So, I reviewed the hub again and took out one or two possible offending words, but frankly I can't find the problem it's just not a porn site and has no nudity. I can't stress this enough, I am getting un-published for mature content of which a category pre-exists here already for that?
After reviewing the terms I can confirm that my hub:
-Does not contain nudity
-Does not link to a site that contains nudity
-Does not contain adult content but deals with mature content
-Does not link to a site that contains adult content (mature)
-Does not have any profanity, lewd or sexual references
-Does not link to a site with profanity, lewd, sex references
The article is an original one I wrote especially for this hub, I took a while to create original content and put it in a nice formatted hub. In return I get warned that I am an offender.
My confusion really is about the content of my hub. It's mature content only meant for adults but is not vulgar or sexual in any way...and I created my hub in the correct category - Swingers.
Someone please tell me what I need to do to get this hub published while following the rules?
Welcome to Hubpages!
I would first off, flag the other hubs, so as to bring them to the attention of the moderators.
Secondly, I would contact Maddie directly through her email contact link on her profile.
Were you promoting the Swingaling website? If so, it could be against TOS.
I doubt it since there was no link and it is a question that is in a grey area.

I can't believe what's just happened. One of my hubs was scraped and stolen. No big deal right? Happens all the time and its something that seasoned online authors get used to after a while because hunting thieves down...

I am venturing out into the forums on a rare occasion to personally ask a question I haven't seen anyone from HP answer to anyone's satisfaction to this point. I've just noticed a hubber which only joined around...

I have noticed that when I revamp and/or edit a hub that I already published, traffic increases to that hub. Why? Does revamping a hub bring that hub back to the forefront?

Ok I am at my end! I seem to be having an issue with HP. Everytime I flag something I end up getting flagged. Yesterday I published my 2nd part in a 3 part series on Jeffrey Dahmer. Ads were taken and I was fine with...

So, I understand I can't publish any content on here that I have used for another site. But can I publish on here first, then carry those articles over to another site? Is that allowed? Cause on the other sites I write...
