    Recently when I was creating a new hub, I couldn't use the link I wanted to use because a warning popped up telling me that link was already used.  I know before the  subdomain switch this was the case.  The links are different now because of the subdomains. 

    For instance, if I wanted to write a hub titled John Henry's Hammer, the link would be

    Another hubber would have a similar link but not the same link http://anotherhubber.hubpages/hub/johnhenryshammer

    So why is there still a duplicate link warning when the links are different now?

    Do not click those links above because they are dead.

      For some reason the url slug maker thingie is looking just at

      I think when HP first rolled out subdomains, someone suggested allowing users to use subdomain unique slugs vs site unique slugs (which we've got now.) I think HP said they may allow it in the future.

      I think there might be some possible reasons against it though, but I can't think of them off the top of my head, sorry. sad
