Un featured hub :(

    Hi, I made a new hub today and it was un featured due to quality, It's the smallest hub I have wrote to date at 856 words, but there's no more to be said, I don't want to waffle on when not needed.
    Anyway, question is, when I make edits, will it automatically be resubmitted for checking? as I obviously want it featured.
    Thanks in advance

      Yes if you edit it, it will rerun through QAP.  I suggest adding some sub-headings and media like pictures.

    Hi, Claire - I checked your hub, and the topic looks good.  I'm wondering if the QAP reviewers are rushing through hubs (without reading your intent) and thought it appeared promotional?  It's not, but the lead language and the series of images about shows might look ad-like? 

    Here are a few suggestions: 

    HP prefers titles of hubs & subheads to have caps in the main words.  That's an easy edit (might be something they noticed - even if it's nit-picky).

    Consider using fewer logo-looking images and look for some YouTube clips of some of the shows.

    If you're linking to commercial sites in the list of where to register, maybe get rid of links & just give the info?

    Consider revising the lead sentence or two to sound less promotional.  Maybe you could lead with something like, "Are you planning a trip to the UK on a limited budget?  If you're interested in some low-cost entertainment, consider registering for free tickets . . ."  etc.

    I don't know if these ideas would help, but I definitely think the topic of your hub would be great to feature.

    Best of luck!

    Thanks so much, I was hoping there would be something I had missed that would be an easy edit.  I hate that you can write a good (imo) article from scratch and have to mess about with it when (imo) it's great as it is hmm

      Good topic.  I notice that none of your photos are credited - that may be the problem.

        Photo credits have nothing to do with passing QAP.

    It's now featured, I made it over 1000 characters and BOOM it got featured.  I didn't make any other changes.
