I wrote this poem but was told that the topic and category does not match the content. I want to change the category but cannot seem to find the relevant buttons to do so. Can somebody help and while you are at it, take a look at this and criticize/suggest ideas. Thanks.
WHAT IS LOVE-MY DEFINITION
Love is a subject I like to dwell upon but I know that as one grows, one becomes lost for words to use in defining what true love really means! I have watched people get confused when you ask them what love is. Children have a different perception and adults also have theirs but all perceptions are right because they bring definitions that come from the heart.
Love cannot be defined and any attempt to do so is just that - an attempt. Love is felt and experienced and that is its best definition. However, it won't stop me from attempting to define it in my own words because each time I think of love (whether EROS - the love between lovers, spouses, etc. or PHILOS - the love that is platonic or just friendship love or even AGAPE - the sacrificial kind of love especially the type God demonstrates towards us) I feel like writing it in poetry.
Below is an attempt - yes, just an attempt at defining love my way.
Love is the thrill
When I kneel
to my God the appeal
of being with you still.
Love is the smile
that bridges the miles
between turmoil and the files
of excess piles
of magnificent tiles
of love that lift me to the skies.
Love is the croak
that manages to go for broke
each time I, your beauty, soak
as you divest yourself of your cloak
Love is the misery
of waiting endlessly
for the time to seamlessly
enter your embrace ceaselessly
Love is the coup
that makes my heart pound anew
when I think of someone so alive and true
Someone so amazingly YOU.

This has happened to me also-even after the poem was published for a month--in my case--I changed the tags-for this you could use tags like--"love-like-relationships-poem-poetry-feelings-emoyions-feelings- ect. It would most likely be under "Books-Lit--then Poetry. Hope this helps
The place this would be placed would be under
Books, Literature, and Writing → Poems and Poetry → Inspirational Poetry
It is a nice piece that even without hearing you read it has a real jam feel to it.
As JaggedFrost says
post under: Books, lit, writing -- Poems and Poetry
use tags: love, life, poem, poetry, relationships
Hope it helps!
before publishing delete your post here so that you don't get flagged for duplicate content. I don't think you are following this thread though
Thank you, everyone. You have all been real helpful and no doubt I am learning fast from all of you. Thanks once again.
In other word, "Thank you and go away because yall ain't given me the pity and respect I was expecting."
how can you honestly know that this is what the person who posted this really means? are you a mind reader? you need to learn how to find the good in people and not assume that their motives are bad and not for good
I try not to make snap judgments. It is poor form. But no offense was intended none the less.
I found your previous comment interesting enough.
Just what I'd expect from the staff. So supportive????????????Not!
We know W.E isn't staff, just telling that HP staff are busy banning legit articles while all sort copied product reviews from amazon float on the site!
They catch non-allowed material when they see it. You just have to work out what the problem is and fix it.
HP never ban a legit hub.
HP bans substandard Amazon hubs.
All the amazon hubs are not sub-standard.
You guys really need to Stop Your Self Promotional Games!!
If You Really Need To do this sort of promotional crap then you really need to have a good look at your writing ability and adjust it so that you gain regular traffic and other hubbers who WANT To Read it without being prompted by the additional forum selling!
If you want to get your stuff read in the forums.. then use the appropriate forum thread! - The Extreme Rakeover!!
As far as this poem is concerned... Love is a Croak?? - Really?
WTF is a Croak - One of the skills to writing poetry is NOT Forcing a Rhyme... I believe you have forced it so much here that a Frog may appear out from under your Croak if you don't remain seated!
You think everybody who replied here are self-promoting. Then why are you roaming around in the forums
No, s/he means the hubs that got dumped probably broke the TOS for being overly promotional. Which is the most likely explanation.
I have no idea. But then OP never told us what the voilation was that caused the problem. So anything is possible.
OP mentioned that the hub was categorized under wrong topic. So the hub was flagged being deceptively tagged/categorized.
she meant that posting the text in forum was overly promotional.
I mean the text was probably not overly promotional. Anyway since you are saying that hubteam is always right what can you say about this hub:
One of my similar hub got unpublished, while this hub is ranked in google for quite a few days.
please take off the link, don't give the poor hub a backlink.
The hub has enough content
The layout is poor and seems like she was shouting.
The content is plagiarized though HP allows to keep plagiarized contents but penalize the hubber as do Google.
I don't see a problem with it.
What warning you received when your one was taken off?
This is his/her own hub and a bit off topic.
Adult/mature content, however it was not some cheap hub. Respected hubbers have discussed about the hub here:
And you are right, the above hub is almost entirely plagiarized from wikipedia, and we can say it has plenty of mature images. If HP is so strict about mature content, they should implement the rule uniformly, not in a discriminatory way. And what does HP expect, in a content site like this there won't be any serious article?
I don't see what other said about your hub.
~Just one or two words can trigger the filter
~Adult Content: Contains nudity, lewd or provocative images, excessive profanity, sexually explicit content, or contains links to adult or pornographic sites
~Hubpages want all serious articles remain published here. They only unpublish when there is a serious TOS violation.
~Hubs covering sensitive or sexually related topics are not acceptable to many advertisers that's why ads are disabled in such hubs. For an example, the filtering program doesn't understand whether you are encouraging suicide or preventing it. They only understand that you are talking about suicide.
Wait for the team's reply.
Sometimes messages appear on hubs such as too many tags etc. I usually assume it is an automatic message. Your hub may have been flagged as wrong category, if that is all moving it should solve the problem, probably all sorted by now by.
I really think there is much less 'human' input into things like this and Hubberscores (on your profile) and Hubscores ( on your hubs) than I assumed when I first arrived here.
Maybe!!? A hamster in a wheel is part of how it all works and some days it runs faster than others. Some days its little friend the sneaky old fox spots something it does not like and makes us change it.
The rule is applied uniformly but only after a hub is brought to the attention of staff. They don't check every page.
come now, only "serious" hubs - let's discuss "serious"
hmmmmmmmmm . . . oh!
when I said serious I didn't meant to insult any commercial hub, I only meant it was not one of those spammy "hot aunty" type hubs.
I'm glad I didn't bother with my poem after all.
I copied stuff
Then my Adsense
I was dammed
But I'll be back
And you got scammed.
Mark, I didn't copy anything. Please care about what you are saying before you actually know anything about it.
If this thread is to continue, lets hear from someone who has been seriously wronged by HP and see if we cant spot a reason why they were picked on. Sometimes people here who write that kind of stuff are victims of Hoppers. Heaven knows that there isn't enough time in the day for staff to comb every site for contraband. If you see something like that you can also flag it.

when hoppers flag a hub its first reviewed by the moderator and only then gets unpublished.
This convo is moving so fast that I often find that the comment I make gets totally disassociated with the source info and it is hard to capture the previous comment when doing this on my feed.
No doubt hubs get viewed by moderator before being unpublished, I am only amused why 2 hubs got 2 different treatment.
~May be the art works saved that hub
~none flagged that one but flagged your one
~there is a set level of filtration in the software. you exceeded the level that one didn't
Now have a look at this forum thread.
Understandably hubteam gets mad at times.
rare to see a XXX spammer of such calibre, fantastic straightforwardness.
We should get some sleep now, Good Night.

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

Yesterday I invited a friend to try the hubpages. She declined stating that most of the staff are narcissistic head hunters who have a degree in English, play head games with the users they don't like, are unfair in carrying out their hub rules and often help the evil doers on the site if it means...
