    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Eat insects in a delicious way: a burger! (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      I agree with Rupert.  There are many "typos," and grammatical errors.  I also agree about displaying the source for your images and/or videos.  Additionally, explain the exact benefits of eating these burgers.  I will tell you, though, no matter how much someone tries to convince me, I will NEVER eat a worm (also, worms are not bugs or insects, so consider staying on-topic within the hub, or try to find a way to transition the content (and text) from worms to bugs OR insects.  I hope this helps!

        Thanks for the advice. Actually mealworm is the common name of the larvae of a species o beatles. So they're not actually worms even if they're called that way. I guess I'll explain that in my hub. Thank you.

      It is a unique hub. I will like to know how they gathered many warms. Where they come from.?  Which countries, people are eating insects. Is it safe to eat them. What are the side effects and the benefits beside protein. Thank you for the information.

    It looks to me that the issue is poor quality grammar and spelling. Your first paragraph contains several errors. Corrections are in brackets.

    "Eating insects is a very common (what?) in many cultures around the world. They are very nutritional, a grat (great) source of protein, and also have a really good taste. Eating insects can also be beneficial for the environment because it produces significantly less amount of greenhouse gasses (than what?, uses less land (than what?), and you can even breed them at home! Insects might be a solution for (the) world's food security!"

    Exclamation points should only be used after an exclamation, such as Oh! or Bang!

    Later - "So what better way to start eating them than a delicious mealworm burguer (burger)!" This should end with a question mark not an exclamation point.

    Your image needs a source to show you have permission to use it.

    I recommend you study HubPage's Learning Center http://hubpages.com/community/learningcenter/6573

    Thank you very much. I thought I had already checked for spelling errors but I guess I did a pretty bad job doing it. Thanks for all the advice!

    Your page looks pretty good now. Congrats.

    One little thing is that that you suggest that mealworms grow up into 'beatles' (John Paul, George or Ringo) rather than 'beetles'.

    Also the word 'scientifically' is missing an 's'.

    You can obviously write pretty well but you really need a proofreader (as do I, most of the time, lol).

      Lol I hadn't even noticed the "beatles" mistake. Thanks a lot. English is not my native language so I get that kind of error all the time. I guess I'm so used to seeing the word "beatles" that I subconsciously felt like that was the right way to write it.
