    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub John Snow - Whitewalker or What? (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Hi there,

      Two major problems:

      1. Too short. You need at least 1000 words, and preferably more.

      2. Copyright images. A couple even have copyright symbols on them. You should only use images that are legally in the public domain (not just found via Google) and/ or have a Creative Common license. Unfortunately, you are unlikely to find GoT free-to-use photos. Even stills taken from a screen are still copyright.

        Thanks for the suggestion. I will try to solve out this problem...

      Third major problem:

      3. You are writing about a character whose name you don't even know how to spell -- that doesn't inspire confidence for anyone familiar with the show or books that you would be an authoritative source on the subject. It's Jon Snow.

      Aside from the other significant issues already mentioned: You have a link telling people go to a Blogspot site to download GoT.  Big no no. Even if it's a legal download (???) and even if your site is highly related to your Hub, (again, I have no idea) I'd think the anchor text with the word "download" would be enough to get your Hub dinged.

        The avatar that is shown at the top of this hub is not even the person that wrote this; that, to me, indicates someone out spamming for the afternoon. The download issue you pointed out is probably the way he/she is planning on ripping people off/planting malware.
