So, I'm actually scanning the screen trying to actually notice more than just the things I commonly use, you know "start a new hub", "account", "profile", "signout" and I saw a table (more like a potpouri!) of symbols and their meaning/purpose.
When/how/what MISTAKE did I make such that one (and only one!) hub of mine has that $ with a line through it - indicating it gets no ads/earns no money, et cetera?
And just out of curiosity - what kind of hub/hubber/conduct/plagiarism?! earns the black-backgrounded "irrevocable" status?
Thanks for any help, folks.
Good for you that you're exploring the site controls! More folks should do that.
The hub that has a bar-$ by it--only visible to you, so I don't know which one--violated some policy of the advertisers. See the FAQ topic http://hubpages.com/faq/#adsdisabled.
I'm not sure the irrevocable status is currently used. If you appeal a hub judgement too many times without making enough progress, then you're just wasting their time and they don't want to hear about it again. There may be an FAQ about it, but that's the basic idea. You done really bad, Dude!
Thanks for resonding, Howard. Yeesh - I'd already gotten past the "when the hell is somebody gonna answer my question stage?" to "oh, well - maybe I'll ask again later, or email an admin" to "Howard S. has answered a question you're following..."wait that "coup'la" looks familiar - OH YEAH! I forgot I asked that!"
So, thank you for your advice and for the attaboy
Oh - and my inquiry as the "irrevocable" symbol *was* purely hypothetical. Honest! ......What?... hee hee

Why do people keep saying "I wrote a hub on it" when answering questions on the forums?Tedious, boring, bad manners, self publicity? As if one possible extra visit is going to make any difference in terms of income, fame, success, etc.

I realize we're lucky that HubPages invests money in checking some Hubs for plagiarized copies, when it's not their responsibility - so perhaps I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth! However, it would be great if there was a feature by which we could hide the copyright symbol once...

When I post a comment to someone's hub including a question and they approve it, but do not answer the question, does that mean they have no manners? In your opinion.
