I wrote an actual helpful piece the other day on a different account.
450 words - no pictures.
No pictures were needed!
It answered a question that someone might pose. A question that I had just spent twenty minutes looking for on the web.
Not good enough for QAP.
I thought... "shall I add some photos even though they are pointless?"
"Shall I add a poll or a quiz?"
I just moved it - in one minute - to a blog.
How to type of articles - video and photos are good to go with it
Educational/Information types - even if no polls, pic or videos I will still read it
If it is a "stick man photo", then I like it :-) :-)
I just misjudged it. Again. Seem to be doing that a lot recently.
HP is going to be an article site with fabulous stellar hubs.
The simpler non-stellar stuff needs to be elsewhere. I have a suspicion that some of that simpler stuff makes money.
Seems like every time I turn around, I see another post about a hub written by a quality writer being rejected by QAP. Frankly, I don't know what to do anymore. Guess I'll just keep tinkering with my existing hubs until that option is also taken away. (Sorry HP, I guess my blood sugar is low at the moment.)
Well now - this wasn't 'quality' It was just a page that answered a question.
So I guess it doesn't meet their rules and that is OK.
It was just the beginnings of a change for me. If it isn't good enough and I can't be bothered to upgrade it... fine. It can go elsewhere.

Can anyone explain if there is a requirement or at least an incentive somewhere somehow that would force or cause Hubpages to keep being active in its current form for many many years to come? The reason I ask is that I...

I have had 11 hubs unfeatured last night. I have never had one that changing a letter or two would not refeature. These are saying that the hubs do not have any pictures. One of them had two, I added two more and it is...

Hi all I've created 6 pictures in one capsule. Now I thought from what I read it should turn into a slideshow once I have 5 or more pictures. Some say it's done automatically and others say it is an option once you...
