I have watched post after post in this forum of hubbers getting upset over needing to revise or delete hubs; I WILL NOT whine or cry!
I, in the last month, have had to "fix" many and delete some too.
Just yesterday I received an email saying my list of world series of poker winners was unpublished. At first I was angry, but then I thought, "Why wouldn't Hub Pages have our best interest at heart?" If we make money, they make money.
As a "old-timer" of Hub Pages, I ask all of you to please "Grin and bear it" In the over all scheme of things, it will be better!
When flagging hubs, please read the whole thing and absolutely make sure you are flagging for proper reasons.
Let's put Quality material out there!
Let's have the best writer's site on the web!
All fine and dandy froggy...but hubpages IS getting content for free. FREE. The least they can do is be grateful. Sure they set the webpage up for writers to get exposure, but eventually much of that process can become automated. They always get 40% of the dough off of writers backs, always. That said, I know I'll get hit with the 'if you don't like it go someplace else' comments, so I'll say that hubpages is useful for one reason: getting exposure. Is that worth 40% of the cut? I'm not so sure. It's the only reason I'm here, anyways. I guess it's a tradeoff. But it just makes me angry, is all, when I see the 'no duplicate content' rule that didn't used to be there, and innocent hubs (including my own) being taken down. Hubpages gets our free content building their site, because most writers (including myself) are desparate enough to take such a deal. If you want to make your own rules, etc, go make your own site, and I'm sure I'll get an earful of that comment, too. I just think hubpages is overreacting to the panda/farmer update, and I KNOW they're pissing a lot of hubbers off.
Well overreaction or jittery may be the word.. I can understand HP unpublishing hubs for worthwhile reasons... my hub on reducing stress with humor has been unpublished .... a hub that hit G traffic the second day of posting is now languishing for a few days for a want of response from admin....To my knowledge there is no violation of any sort..
Jitters is what I call it..
Moderators please use discretion before unpublishing is al I ask of you ... I hate cribbing but I need to make my voice heard

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've been an active user of HP for over 6 years. Over that time, my income would increase until, suddenly, my "reads" would take a hit and my (modest) income would take a drop.This has happened a number of times, as you all know.And, I dutifully went through my articles and modified,...

For those who are no newbie to HUB Pages you probably share the same frustrations of working for hours on a hub only to be insulted with the friendly heads up message sending you back to a tutorial about writing rich content hubs. It's like were playing some type of hide and seek game to find...

I have read numerous hubs while hopping that I thought would be great if the writer did some editing or word smithing. I thought it would be nice to let people know that thier piece could be so much better with out trying to hurt anyones feelings. I have commented on a couple of pages...

I'm pleased to announce that the new and improved flagging reasons that I've alluded to recently have finally arrived. We have broken down some of the umbrella categories like "Substandard" into more specific flags, to help you as users better identify rules violations, and help us...

I was thinking that the hub hopping tool is great and all, but it doesn't really address hubs that are older and have slipped through the cracks for months and even years.I was thinking that we could have an adopt a topic program.For example, I've been writing a lot of hubs on Nepal and have looked...
