I have written at least three articles under the writing contest. When I complete the articles and go to click "save" or "publish," my articles seem to disappear. This is very frustrating. Is it because when I click on "contest" there is no way to save or publish my articles. I was sent emails requesting that I enter my articles in the contest but I have been unable to do that. Please advise.
See if the unpublished hubs are currently available under My Account. Some text may then be recoverable.
It sounds like a technical problem with the site, which has nothing to do with the writing contest. The issue may be resolved regardless of what you do, but no one knows how long that will take.
Here and now, I recommend trying a different browser: Firefox and Google Chrome tend to work best on HubPages. Also, I would save the hubs unpublished shortly after creating them, then return to further edit.
Most likely, it may be browser problem. Saving it as unpublised is a good precaution.
You don't need to click contest, you just have to add the writingcontest tag.
How observant of you, Uninvited Writer. If the OP clicks "contest" while editing, that could obviously cause work to be lost.
This is most probably what happened. Clicking contest before a hub is published will wipe out everything you've written.
Hi Angella, I hope you have figured out by now why the hubs you are submitting for the contest are disappearing. If not here's what you should do..
1) write your hub as usual and click "publish"
2) add the tag "writingcontest" making sure there is no space between the words writing and contest.
3) wait for a few minutes as this page is updated hourly and check this page. You should be able to see your hub and other hubs submitted at that time for the contest.

I was wondering about the contest. You see, I'm writing a novel. Would that qualify under the creative writing category? If yes, do I post it in different hubs per chapter or put everything in one hub? I'm really excited about it. I hope it qualifies. Thanks a lot!-Emzi

A Contest will provide friendly competition that will boost creativity. I am not sure how many people need this creative boost as much as I do but I am pretty sure many of us will appreciate the contest.

People have suggested I join Infobarrel so I did. I unpublished and deleted a hub here about La Guancha in Tenerife and thought I would use it as my first InfoBarrel article. The first problem I ran into was it said I was using a keyword too much. The keyword was roses and I was saying that there...

I recently read some reviews on Consumer Affairs, which were absolutely devasting and have got me a little worried. I was wondering if anyone else wrote at similar sites prior to HubPages and why they made the switch, and if they had thought about going back.
