Has hubpages changed the rules regarding hubs on alchohol?
I have 3 hubs on beer which have all been depublished. The only explaination I get from the moderators are that the content is about "Gambling, Alchohol, Tobacco or Weapons".
If hubs on beer arent allowed then why is there a catagory for it?
Anybody else having similar problems?
I think it's probably someone being overly sensetive about it. I've seen all kinds of alcohol Hubs such as cocktail recepies, history of alcohol and the distillation process. Plus, I've seen people review different brands and go into great detail.
Though I'm speaking of around 2 months ago, so times may have changed recently. How very odd though....
Cheers John, yes I have noticed many similar hubs which still seem to be showing. Maybe it was the ebay advertising that the moderators had a problem with, I cant see how rating beer breaks the rules. Will see if taking the ads off makes a difference
I just published a article on making Margaritas that went into detail on how to pick tequila last weekend. So far mine hasn't been unpublished. let me know though if you find out whats going on. I'd hate to see such a wide cooking category to suddenly become taboo.
I was curious about what I could write about, and in one of the official posts I saw something [posted below.] It depends on if you violated the website link rule, or tried to sell something, etc.
"Am I allowed to create Hubs about beer, wine, or alcohol?
You may not create Hubs that sell, or link to sites that sell beer, wine, or alcohol. Further, links to alcohol related sites that require visitors to verify their age are prohibited.
However, you are free to publish reviews of a particular libation, brewery, winery, or distiller. Cocktail recipes are also fair game. On the subject of home brewing, you can share recipes and techniques, and you can sell related equipment. However, the sale of simple all-in-one brewing kits is prohibited.
If you are unsure if your alcohol-related Hub is ok, please contact us for clarification before publishing your Hub."

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Fellow HubbersIn the short time that I have been with HubPages, I have noticed a disturbing trend. As a proud trans woman, I read a lot of Hubs in PairedLife. I am yet to see a single ad on any Hub relating to LGBTI+ issues.I am hoping that this is simply an...

I have just discovered that the 'ad levels' option has been changed on HubPages in a way which really restricts flexibility for Hub page writers. Instead of having the options for 'high', 'medium', or 'low' level advertising, or 'no ads' at all, we are now just being given the options, 'ads'...

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

My goodness, I have read oh so many forums trying to figure out why my once flourishing hubs suddenly took a devastating nosedive. I have learned a lot from others comments & shared experience. I have also recognized that there seems to potentially be a number of possible reasons why many hubs...

As I plow through the lenses to become hubs, two of them I edited do not show the change date of the edit although the updates are visible. Since I am using the date to keep track of the edited lenses, I keep re-editing them but the original date never changes. Is this an issue on HubPages or a...
