  • Flagged my google docs as inappropriate...

    Hey guys,

    As you know, I've had a lot of vitamin d, supplement and nutritional info in my google docs for months.

    Yesteray, I received 3 or 4 emails and private message asking for 'access' to the docs. That was curious b/c they weren't private (I thought) at the time. They were public....access should have been as easy as clicking through the link.

    However, when I went into google docs to see what was up, I was greeted by a message from google, at the top of three of the docs (the main one and two others) saying that the docs had been flagged as inappropriate and could no longer be shared. I clicked the button saying 'request a review' to try to get it straightened around and then posted on MDA so that folks would know why access was limited.

    I can see them and edit them but I can't publish them or share them.

    Then just now, when I went into google docs to try to get it straightened around, I find that all of them are flagged. Not all of my google docs in general (I have hundreds) but all of the google docs that were linked to the orginal table of contents doc.

    First and foremost, I guess I'll be spending some time figuring out a non google docs way to organize and share information.

    Second of all....really?

    For those that have offered suggestions:
    1) to simply copy the doc as a new copy then publish that.
    it doesn't work. the 'flag' follows the doc

    2)to simply copy the information on the old doc into a totally new doc
    that doesn't work either. the links won't copy. I have to copy the text then relink all the docs. I really can't see having the time and motivation vectors aligning on this one.

    3)copy/paste the info an put it into a blog/google site etc....
    again, the issue of the links not coming off the docs is...an issue.

    4)just download them as pdfs. works fine for my access, but I already have access. It doesn't help with access for others...

    Any other thoughts or ideas on better ways to manage this info so that access to it can not be interrupted by one person and google's arbitrary system?

    That's so bizarre that they would get flagged.

    Did you trying the copy paste from a downloaded version? That's the only other thing I can think of to keep the links in tact.

      That sucks Cilla!

      If the links in the pdf's work, im sure someone would be willing host those for you(us,everyone).
      Usually pdf's can be viewed in a browser without having to download them.

        ** = Worked earlier, now locked out

        Why does these links still work, and your others don't ? THAT IS THE QUESTION.
        Your links come from an index. You might see a pattern to the links that no longer work.
        Examine the difference between the links that work & those that don't, you might see a pattern.

        Also, as a test, I have requested access to a few of your files. Let me know if you get my request, then give me access. This will help define your problem.

        Check to see if the link to my research still works for you( at the bottom of my message)
        ( I just checked it and it works for me )

        PS) I was going to build an index to my research, but now I don't think so in view of your problem.

          If you post to a blog - can you type the links in and will they work? I know w/my work - some links I use can't be copied/pasted and work but will work when typed in... I think its odd that Google is now censuring you when they weren't previously...maybe a troll found your links, then complained to google IDK...

          What about editing the link - into a "LOOK HERE" link... some sites will let you do that, and the link will work...

            Looks good to me, Grizz.
            cilla, if you turn it to an XML PDF, the links should follow.

              You are not allowed to have free speech in the United States. The wikileaks trial will make that perfectly clear.

              If you are in favor of vitamin D, then you are against the state. You need to conform to the statist agenda, and get back to the standard American statist approved diet.

                You guys are jumping to invalid conclusions. Google has a lot of bugs and I'm sure this is just another bug.

                I don't believe for a minute that Google is censoring Katherine's work. Many of her links work and some don't. I am a computer programmer and this has all the earmarks of a software bug. We need to find out why some of her links work & others don't. THERE IS A PATTERN TO FIND.

                The link to my own research report works A-OK, and I have MUCH more in there than Katherine has in her report.

                This is interesting. Katherine's Vitamin D doc that worked before is now locked out !

                      Katherine,
                      It is a reported problem. This looks like your problem. With this thread you may find an answer to your problem:
                      http://www.google.com/support/forum/...hl=en&start=40

                      I did a "Search Google Docs Help, "Publish problems" to find the above.

                      More to look at here:
                      http://docs.google.com/support/bin/s...oblem&start=20

                      I suggest you click PUBLISH on a few of your failing links to see if the same internet address is still there. The address might have been blown away by a Google Bug.

                      Please keep us informed of progress,
                      Grizz

                        2 things: the dude talking about free speech is not wrong. you even have free-speech zones - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_speech_zone - the irony of which I find extraordinary.

                        2nd - cillakat - if you provide me the documents as pdfs I can host them for you, free of charge, for infinity. if you know how to use an ftp client, then you'll be able to access them and change/replace them whenever you like too. if you don't, then you can learn (it's easy) or just leave them as is.

                            That appears to be a completely different problem. Mine aren't just 'unpublishing', per the header that you can see in the above and below pics, they appear to have been specifically flagged (by an mda user?) to google as 'inappropriate'.

                            Doesn't work. It's the document that's not viewable rather than being a link issue.



                            Here is my current plan of action:

                            1) hold off on doing anything for four or five days. (pms irritability/emotionality + adhd impulsivity + sad and angry = nothing good)

                            2) figure out another way to make the information public. this was just such an easy way for me. Sincerest thanks for everyone who offered to host the info. You guys are truly wonderful. DH can host for me though....if/once I can mentally get to a place in which I am motivated to take on a new project.

                            3) take my NKO, fish oil, eat good stuff (just went to urban pl8 for lunch), do some housework, go walk smallbadbrowndog, bodyrock.tv, get out of my own brain(ie podcasts, reading, lab etc).

                              Well, one of the docs has been 'unflagged'. The main doc, the one linked below, appears to be accessible now. It was also the first one for which I requested a review. Perhaps the others will follow soon?

                              Still this leaves me with a decision about how to manage this information in the future to avoid the whims of either google's algorithm or a disgruntled person - whichever the case was.
