First, can I change or modify the hub and will that make it not original?
Second, I have other hubs that should be certified original so what should I do?
You've lost me, what do you mean be "certified original"?
You can change or modify a hub as much as you like, it won't trip the duplicate filter unless it's duplicate.
I have a hub that was permitted to be duplicated on BI before the Panda. That hub has now been certified original by Hubpages staff. I am wondering if I can make a change to the hub, the original, and if it will still be considered original. I may have to email Maddie but I wanted to let people know if they had something similar.
Hiya bgamall, I've never of "certified original" before either, and even if it was accepted by Hubpages before, the new rules about duplicates will overrule everything else about duplication. If your hub hasn't been found yet by HP puter or moderators, it will be flagged eventually, and if you edit it.. it might just hasten the process of getting your hub noticed by HP moderators and you will find your hub unpublished. This is the new ruling on duplicates..
Thanks for not knowning what you are talking about Rosie. This was for hubs copied in syndication prior to panda. They are allowed to stand and when it is proven that they are the original they get a certification. Here is how it goes:

CERTIFIED ORIGINAL: This Hub has been granted an exception an is no longer consider by HubPages to be duplicated
In the years prior to Panda, we couldn't have outbound links on duplicate lenses. But if it was 'certified original' it would get a pass. I've had two such lenses, and they were certified original when they brought in the duplicate filter.
It takes awhile. But it is nice to have it showing. My question, Darkside, is, if we change the original will it still be counted as the original?
OMG! Am I seeing a spelling mistake there? Just noticed after posting the screenshot. Do you have the same on your hubs bgmall?
Certified original is nothing new. It was there from 2007, as far as I know.
The "consider" immediately after needs some work as well. Someone must have been in hurry that day! ")

What's the hubpages view on copying free license text and passing it off as your own?Even if quoted, its duplicate content.. which I'm sure would be penalized.. but is it acceptable to do it in the first place?I was just looking at a hub by a constantly-complaining hubber - and her hub is 100%...

Can you please tell me why i cannot publish my hub, it is not a duplicate because I am the creator of it and no one else could have written this on hubpages.

Like some other contributors in this forum, I've also just had an article suspended for "duplication". This is an article on grammar rewritten from a small section of my own much longer article on EzineArticles. I modified just about every sentence, changed examples, added content, etc....

Hi all, I have just had my first experience of having a hub unpublished, and have been given a duplicate content notification. It's a hub I was very happy with, as the structure and content came very naturally, and was genuinely written entirely out of my own head. I find the duplicate content...

I would appreciate if Staff would tell me whether GamerGirl and Whitney, both of whom have chosen to crawl through all my output (output which staff courteously restored after I had totally deleted it on my sabbatical) and repetitively downthumb and flag me, have been assigned by staff as my...
