Are hubs with just pictures, or maybe with a little bit of text ok?
I know some of these are called "Aunty Hubs" and was a source of discussion quite a while ago, but with the Panda rollout, what is the policy?
These are the types of hubs I am referring to.
Perhaps the 'flag this hub' thing should be more prominent (it's in small type, beside the Tweet button on each hub).
I have quite a few flowers picture gallery hubs. Some are moderately old, some new. They've never been flagged or anything, and they get the most views of any of my hubs. Mind you, I write a bit of text about each one, so I usually end up with about 600 words besides the 13 pictures.
There is a place for this type of hubs, but I don't think that Hubpages is the place. How would Google rank such sites? And I can't help but to think that it adds to the effects of lowering the rankings of the entire site.
I don't know. There are some celebrity hubs that are very well done (like the one from Cagsil) but there are some with just a series of pictures and a sentence or two of text. Its a difference of night and day.
From memory those types of galleries are allowed, as long as they are correctly placed in the photo gallery section.
I would like to see these types of hubs banned UNLESS they are set up to display the author's own photography or other art work, or to display the work of another person WITH THEIR PERMISSION. I flagged a hub some weeks ago, which consisted of other people's photographs. Although the authors of the photographs were acknowledged, there was no indication that the hub author had obtained permission to use the images, nor any indication of the source from which they had been obtained. I'm fairly certain the hub was totally in breach of copyright. It was still up the last time I checked.

Almost a year ago I wrote an article and put it up on Helium (first and LAST time I would ever do that!). Because I had stupidly not read all of the fine print in the Helium user agreement I now cannot delete that article from their site in spite of the fact that I have no desire to be active there...

Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question but trust me I have good reason to ask. I went to look at my list of authorized sites on my adsense account. I see hubpages there and it says I'm getting 0% of revenue. Well, shouldn't it read something like "60% of revenue"? And mind you,...

At times when I check some hubbers' pages, a notification appears like "the hubber has been banned from HubPages". How can we know on what ground the hubber has been banned and what is the fate of his already published hubs? Can he publish those on other sites. Can anyone give...
