      I suggest you tell us which Hub it is, and also tell us what the email said, then we can help.

          The start of email says:
          What To Do if You Receive an Editor Request
          Tips on Getting Your Hubs Selected

          We announced the Editor Request feature back in August, and some of you have already received emails from HubPages Editors requesting changes in order to move articles to Network Sites. We know there has been some confusion around this feature, and we want to make sure everyone has as good an experience as possible. To that end, here are a few answers to common questions about this feature:
          Why did I get this email instead of the Editor just fixing my article?

          The Editor Request feature is intended for articles with minor issues that Editors think the author can easily fix him/herself. We have created this feature in order to help us get as many of your articles moved to Sites as quickly as possible.

          Are the request emails generic?

          Yes and no. Editors have a list of potential issues, and they select and include only the items that apply to your particular article in the email. So, if the Editor includes a product warning, a link warning, and a photo warning, it means s/he needs you to fix those three things before the article can be accepted. You are welcome and encouraged to improve your article in other ways too, but if you do not fix the specific points addressed by the Editor, your article is very unlikely to be accepted. The Editor may also include personalized feedback in your email if s/he feels it is necessary.

          Do I have to make the changes suggested by my Editor?

          If you want your article to be moved to a Network Site, you will need to address the issues your Editor has pointed out. However, there are no negative consequences should you wish to leave your article as-is and keep it on HubPages.com. Simply disregard your Editor's email and do nothing if this is your preference.

          How many times can I resubmit my article after changes have been requested?

          You will only be able to submit once after having changes requested by an Editor without using up your one submission per 60 days. We recommend reading your email carefully and fixing all the points touched on your Editor before submitting to have the best chance at acceptance.

          I took a quick peek at one of the hubs you listed and saw a good number of grammatical and structural errors.  It appears that English is your second language, which makes writing articles here difficult because one of the ways hubs become featured and moved to niche sites has to do with having a good knowledge of English.  There are other problems I see as well, but until you brush up on your English skills, I think you may have problems moving to the niches.  A good adult ed immersion class would help you a great deal.  Best of luck.

              TT2 is suggesting you enrol on an intensive English language course. An immersion class is one where you spend at least a few hours a day with your group speaking only the language you are learning. The aim is to get you speaking and thinking in that language as quickly as possible.

              I see from your profile that you live in Islamabad, Pakistan. There are some English language schools listed on here:

    Are you sure you got an email from the editors? What you just posted is from the newsletter every one of us received.

    Did you get an email with a hub URL specified? If yes, paste the message of that email here.

      Dear lobobrandon,
      I received the above email yesterday. The kind of message that you are mentioning was long ago (almost a year) when I newly posted my hubs and I edited them alone and posted them again.Since then they are there in the website.
      The new email from the website means something that may be I do not  understand. I want to know why is it sent to me and what is needed from me to do.  I thought that further editing is needed from me but could not get how to do it. So, I sought the help of you guys. Is there anything that you would like to add to my knowledge, please? smile

        The email that you received yesterday, is the one that everyone at hubpages received yesterday. It was part of the weekly newsletter. As far as I can see, there is nothing that you need to do (yet), but you could always work on your hubs to make them better so that they eventually get to go to the niche sites.

    Shermeck,
    Try some of these editing sites on the internet. I've found them to be useful, as I have a tendency to rant or go off topic.
    Here are some of the ones I use.

    http://beta.hemingwayapp.com
    http://www.polishmywriting.com
    http://www.paperrater.com

    All are free to use. They help with sentence structure, spelling and many other things.

    If it's free, it's for me!!

    Cheers
