I just saw this button om My Account page. Is this new? And what does it mean?
WOW! That sounds ominous as hell! As in “no 2nd chance” and “you’re screwed”. I hope to heck I’m wrong!!!!
I guess if it's applied to a hub, that's it! Possibly a hub which clearly breaks TOS purposefully. ?
Camlo, it's at the bottom along with other descriptions of hub status and what SF said.
I don't know. I actually had to look up the word.
However, I am interested to see and learn about it's application.
I'd say it's new. I'm not seeing any sort of official announcement or description yet, so it must be really, really new.
According to dictionary.com, "irrevocable" means "Not able to be changed, reversed, or recovered; final." Sounds like admin has created some sort of hub classification that can't be changed or altered once it's applied to a Hub. Looks like moderation is about to get really serious.
I bet we get an announcement/explanation later today.
This icon is, indeed, new. Good eyes, Michael Willis!
Certain rules violations (like the spamming/abuse of other sites to obtain sketchy backlinks for your Hub) have always been "irrevocable," meaning that the Hub cannot be brought into compliance and will never be republished. Now, it's just part of the software, making the mod team's job easier.
This change is part of a wider effort to improve the flagging/moderating process easier for both users and staff, in terms of clarity.
Thanks Maddie! The black background got my attention to the word.
I was like, Wow, what is this?
Are you going OK with the flagging Maddie?
I have been flagging them in the hope that if hubpages can be sans junk, Mrs Google will love us again.... I took a bit of a hit on my figures, I want them back!
I am always grateful when users take the time to flag low-quality and spammy content. Also, soon, as a part of the changes I mentioned above, we'll have a more specific flagging system that I think will make things a lot easier for all of us.
What if it is geared towards a hub that has been flagged as spam. They could mark it a irrevocable meaning the hub can not come back into population with the original url or resubmitted for review. basically its toast.
Huh. I have some guesses about this, but right now just... huh.
Whatever you do...don't push that button! Sounds scary...Yikes!
I saw it too. Initially I thought it seemed a bit harsh, but I can kind of understand its usage. Think about it this way:
You're a mod and there's this hub you had to take down because it's a bunch of spam, so you unpublish it.
The user changes the hub slightly, reposts it.
You see that it is essentially still a spammy, worthless hub, so you unpublish it.
The user makes more minute changes to it, reposts it.
You see that it is essentially still a spammy, worthless hub, and it's obvious the hubber is "getting it." You hit 'irrevocable.'
The user must completely redo the hub.

I'd like to see the "Start a new Hub" button displayed on the "My Account" page.We've all noticed new Hubbers who can't work out how to start a new Hub. Thing is, I've noticed I have the same problem - and I've been here for ages! So I think it would be a good idea to have...

Regarding niche sites, at the moment, all we really know from looking on the My Account page is if a hub is featured or not. It would be useful to know *where* the hub is featured (Soapboxie, Owlcation, HubPages, PairedLife etc.). At the moment there is no way of knowing without...

I have a green comments button next to my profile picture at the moment which when I click on it in the usual manner to respond takes me to a page where I can't see the comment to respond to it. Is anyone else having this problem?

I am major curious about the answer to this mystery.... just how much traffic are those Hubs who make it to the HOT HUBS actually receiving? I know that most likely nobody is going to give this up with specific numbers.... but how about some averages as to what kind of traffic brings a...

So I was bored and decided I would Google some of the topics of a few of my most recent hubs... Two of them popped up on the FIRST PAGE!! WHHHHHAAAAATTT?!??! lol. Sorry, I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place for this, but I almost swallowed my own tongue I was so excited and I need to tell...

Don't know if this is the correct term, but my back button, arrow thingy, doesn't seem to be working for question/answer. It's also refused to work on a hub just now. It seems to work fine everywhere else. Have tried refreshing the browser. Any comments?
