    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub What to Pack on a Trip to Sri Lanka?. What can I do to improve? Thanks a million!!

      Hi Thish,
      I think your hub is very interesting and certainly helpful to anyone traveling to Sri Lanka.  However, your hub has English language issues, and that is probably why your hub is not passing QAP. For example, you wrote

      You do not have to bring different types of shoes and having one all-purpose pair of sandal can survive you.

      which isn't quite right.  A better way to write this is

      You do not have to bring different types of shoes and with one all-purpose pair of sandals you can survive.

      There are a lot of other sentences with structural problems like this, so you should think about finding an editor or proofreader to help you.  Best of luck.

        @calculus-geometr , Thank you very much for your time taken to go through my hub and also giving me useful feedback. As per your suggestion i went through the article and corrected some grammar mistakes, typos and and re-phrased some sentences. Hope the hub is better now and hope i will get it featured soon. Thanks again!

    Oh now I want to visit Sri Lanka! It looks like a beautiful country.  I think your hub is well written.  Here is what I would do to improve it:

    1.  Add an introduction.  Maybe start with where it is and why people would want to visit, etc. I know the video does that, but some people may skip the video.  You start too abruptly with the first item and an Amazon capsule without telling us the purpose of the hub.

    2.  Add a summary. It ends just as quickly with the last item.

    3. Check again for spelling errors.  There was a word that I think was supposed to be Columbo (C0l0mbo) in the Travel with Less Money section. I think you write well, but just like everyone else, it helps to proofread and proofread again.

    4.  You are trying to sell a backpack, sandals and a camera.  Yes it is possible that people might want to buy these things to go on any trip, but I'm not sure why these products are the best for a trip to Sri Lanka specifically.  I would include a description about why you are specifically recommending these particular products.

      Those were indeed very valid useful suggestions. For a moment i thought why on earth i did not think about these points.
      Thanks again! and really appreciate your help and time.
      I did the changes to the article with your suggestion and fingers crossed to get ti pass through QAP.

    Thanks everyone who helped me so far. But unfortunately my hub is not still QAP passed. The email i get from hubpages is that I have Spam elements in my article. But i  cannot figure what they refer as I have not added any spam there. Does anyone understand what it means for having spamy elements and why it is not QAP passed.
    Thanks a bunch!
