I was just hub hopping and found a hub with nothing, I mean nothing but one link... OMG can I post the link here for the staff to find?
Really it has no text just one link to a promo site.
How do these hubs clear for publishing?
I thought hubs were published automatically unless they fail to meet certain criteria (too many amazon/ebay ads per word being the main one). A hub like this will get flagged (faily quickly, I assume) and when a moderator sees it it will be unpublished.
If HubPages allows a hub with nothing but one link to be published then it seems like there is a flaw in the system.
I realize it will be flagged quickly but every time a hub is flagged it creates another task for the busy moderators of this site.
Just my two cents...
Thanks for flagging the Hub. Hubbers should get warnings now if their Hubs are too short and shouldn't be able to publish them. I noticed the Hub is no longer published; you did your job perfectly! Thanks again!
Hell All those 000000s are starting to look like they are growing on your chin UW
You bet I did, what you think? You spot it you got to!
Put the Link UP HERE and Flag the User as well.
Good On You
Interesting Name for a TV there TV... Spec to a Pearldiver
DON'T put the link up here. That Hub doesn't deserve attention, other than a flag to alert the moderators.
Here you have it
Wow, I've never seen that before. Crappy writing, yes. Short and full of links, yes. But never just a single, solitary link. That's pretty bad...
That's bad-- but I saw one today that was copied word-for-word from the HubPages learning center.
Yikes...but kind of have to laugh at the level of stupidity they must have to do that.
Was the author HubPages? We are rolling our Learning Center entries out into Hubs instead of through WordPress, so it might have been legitimate! The old Wordpress format should be down soon and the Hubs will be in their place. We didn't want there to be a time when there was no Learning Center entries. Thanks for being on the ball with your Flagging. That's awesome!
No, not HubPages-- some kind of "expert" I think, and it was very short.
That is totally crazy, the one cut from hub learning center, talk about the nerve
Just flagged it while hopping.

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...

What are your thoughts on the new affiliate link affiliate link blanket rule? Do you think it will reduce the tsunami of spam hubs that spammer hubbers are publishing or will it make no difference at all?Personally I have had three Hubs flagged and placed in no mans land for affiliate links even...

I'm about to publish a hub. My goal with this hub is to promote the idea of writing for Mesothelioma Awareness day. I took out one link to cancer information already, but am still getting the warning.I think that this hub, without links to the information, would be silly. And I...

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.
