alright, so I had pinned a Hub, traffic started going good, then poof! unpublished. Fine, I found and removed the 'offense' it's been near what, 3 days and now the weekend nobody reviewed it or what? if there's new violations there's no mention or little (?) to show me.
Did you e-mail them? I would follow-up tomorrow, I am sure you will get a response.
Not sure, Did you write them to find out? With all the smileys I had a bit of a time reading your ? but do not mean that bad at all...this is not a Hub...it doesn't matter...keep working at it and I do think you will make it and want to read some of your hubs. take care
Hi AEvans I had done the corrections, resubmitted and it was sent back, saying some 'stuff of unrelated products and links', but they are related No way a sewing machine is unrelated to 'sewing' all links go to sewing and busienss info so am annoyed.
Lollo! I am sure it is a system error not human error and it will get handled. I am sorry you had to experience that frustration. It will turn out okay.
If you open the "violation" message on the Hub, it tells you which specific links are the problem. If you don't agree with the decision, then when you email them back, you need to explain why that specific link is not a problem. Moderators are human beings, if they see that you have the expertise and you make a good case, they'll change their minds.
yeah, not a good way to start a weekend though but the weekend is almost over and traffic is up once again so hopefully recover again.
Wow, found a email in my email, from Friday I don't agree with the ruling since it restricts my promotional efforts and affiliate but tis your rules.
hi Marisa I did remove the 'offenses' and it still is unpublished and have been waiting. The first time I checked, yes, I read the violations and no idea what n where, 2nd time, there was nothing, just repeat message, 3rd time, violations were typed in the email and corrected. Now I'm still waiting.
Hi DS... sorry to see you being mucked around and having to wait and wait and wait like that..
Good luck... have you told them how important Spring/Summer is in your part of the world and how busy you are at this time needing to run around doing real stuff before the 10 months of darkness sets in and provides everyone with a more appropriate time to wait and wait and wait?
And... they make us wait and wait and wait down here too!
hi Pearld 10 months of darkness isn't that bad. Sun does shine but temp's take time to rise. It's still chilly around here and definitely not swimming season yet. I know our spring/summer season can be short but I love it. Wierd, ok thanks for dropping in. Not sure what's the deal with imposed waiting times, hurts our traffic and links though. Now I have to deal with broken links which I handle with unpublishing the whole article.
In the same boat, one of my best performing hubs has had the ads turned off as I have alleged got unrelated links or unrelated products. I'll be damned if I can find them as in my mind everything is 100% related. At least it has not been unpublished, but with no adverts it is earning nothing. I don't recall anything in the rules saying that they will turn off your ads if you have unrelated links and products either - is this a new way to punish us hubbers who earn them a few thousand bucks?
I emailed them 3 / 4 days ago but have heard nothing.... nothing to explain exactly what the violation is or anything...Have followed up with another email today... will see if I ever get an answer and if my hub ever gets to start earning again..
Hi Leanman sorry to hear you're having near same problems too. Operating in a rule and forget mode, isn't good for business clients and customers pay attention to such things. I sent a email off, what, 6 days now
Wow DS.. a week! That's BS
Ho.. Hummm! People Skills are just so hard to develop..
when you don't know how,
or don't believe they are needed,
or use the absence of them to maintain a level of control over the people (that would actually be greater if you actually had people skills! ),
or just won't listen to real good sense from the people!
Such practice isn't good for anything!
Except developing an ever increasing negative environment!
What would WE Know... being such lowly, disloyal, and ungrateful bleaters!
Just read Pearldiver"s comment and I must be more tired than I thought tonight. I just could not follow it, however there are some good thoughts there.
Pearld, thank you for the chuckles. Yeah, it is ridiculous and as I've said, annoying. Just waiting to hear now
alright it has been republished but maybe the 'publish for review' button isn't working hence, why nobody knew? now I can republish the hub with the broken link
running around in the dark with a headlight would probably be cool I think waiting periods have long changed since I first arrived it probably cost me links and $$ too now.

Today a moderator unpublished one of my pages manually - thus over riding the 4 month grace period. The page was counted as overly promotional mainly because of Zazzle links I think. In addition, it is now reading the...
