So I am looking at my account and on one of my hubs is a little red skull....I had this once before so I knew I needed to click edit to see which link is the offending link BUT there is no information box. None of the links are flagged and I have no idea why it is marked. I checked all of the links and they were fine. Has anyone else experienced this or does anyone know if they are having problems again with erroneous red skulls?
I don't know if there are problems again. But, as far as I see I have none. A red skull indicates violations and not just link problems. It could be a bug though.
Click the hub itself for edit. I got one before and clicking it for edit shows that it has not passed the minimum word requirements to be consider a good hub. If you still find no reason, contact HP support to clarify things.
Yes, I clicked to edit the individual hub but there was no information to clarify any reason for a violation. It is usually in a large black box right at the top of the hub. It looked as if any other normal hub would. I have contacted HubPages staff.. surely they will be able to help me out. Thanks for the reply
I've got the red scull on two of mine. I contacted the HP team and they tell me they picked up a link that was an unsafe website. I have no website links in these particular hubs except for a reference on an image yet they still show.
Not sure whether the team review these things manually or how long it takes to go either.
Get Captain America to come and sort it out! the evil Red Skull has always been a thorn in his side...

No I don't drink at this time of the morning 11:10am is too early for me! But I'm getting drunk in advance though!
The little red skull is now gone. HubPages must have gone in and fixed the problem. Thank you to all for the replies!
Check in the right column to make sure there are no warnings of question marks anywhere. If not, I would suggest emailing hubstaff for clarification.

One of my hubs was flagged with the little red skull for Links To Malware or Phishing Sites. Problem is I've gone through each and every link and I can't figure out which link it could possibly be referring to. Each link goes directly to where it is supposed to go without any kind of warning...

It's absolutely pointless to tell me that a link on a hub is a reported phishing site. . . .IF IT'S NOT GOING TO TELL ME WHICH LINK IS THE PROBLEM!It's absolutely ridiculous to NOT tell someone what link is a phishing site link, or the problem link.I create hubs with LOTS of links in them to sites...

I've got the "Overly Promotional" red skull of doom on my top trafficked hub.Naturally it was the first one I edited. The affiliate links and "overly promotional" warnings at the top of the hub went away in the workshop. I republished it last night, and it's still published...

Just got home from the hospital and checking my HP account I found the Red Skull of Death on my Social Services hub. I read my hub over, couldn't find any violations and when I went to check my account again the Red Skull of Death was gone. Anyone have any ideas? I'm glad it's...

One of my hubs has a red skull, but it doesnt have the 3 links to one site? Why?One of my hubs has a red skull next to it saying it has 3 or promotional links to one site, but it doesn't. It has a number or links but all to different sites, no duplicates at all? I dont understand why? Any ideas?
