    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Single, twin, quattro, quad, unicable and monoblack LNB ...... what's the difference? (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    I am totally unqualified to comment on the technical aspects of your article, but I am able to offer advice on English usage. There are numerous grammar and punctuation problems that might be identified by running your copy through a free program such as Grammarly or Hemingway.

    Your headline is much too long. Think about what someone would type into a search field if they are looking for the information you are offering. It's extremely unlikely to be "Single, twin, quattro, quad, unicable and monoblack LNB ...... what's the difference?" Short headlines work best.

    Also, do you have permission to use the images? This link will help https://hubpageshelp.com/media/Learning … -image-use

      Yes, but you did not attribute them in any manner at all. You need to follow the instructions on the site where you got the photos on how to attribute them.

          Have you changed the title and fixed the errors we already told you about? Do those first and then we'll take another look.

    I was completely lost right at the beginning. The introduction needs working on. Your readers need to know what the hub is about right from the start, i.e. satellite systems and how they work. Don't use acronyms right off the bat. Write it out in full in the first instance, then use abbreviations.

    I agree with Rupert, the title doesn't work. Try this: https://hubpageshelp.com/content/Learni … ndly-Title

    Hope that helps.

    ok i will do that .
    What about the grammer? any errors?

    1. theraggededge profile image95
      theraggededgeposted 2 months ago in reply to this

      Yes, lots. Rupert already mentioned it so I didn't bother. I'm afraid we are not able to correct your grammar, error-by-error. You can try reading the text out loud, getting someone to proofread it for you (often we can't see our own mistakes), or run it through Grammarly - although that won't correct everything.

        Did you, firstcookbooklady? I didn't see a helpful contribution from you. Do you think your comment adds anything useful to the discussion?

        Maybe you could actually take a look at the hub and make a suggestion?

          firstcookbookladyposted 2 months ago in reply to this

          I was merely imitating the way he/she was talking to us. I still think there are far too many grammatical errors and spelling errors and words out of context to make the entire article fly. I think that, since he/she copied someone else's work, even if it claimed that it was okay to copy, I think that original work is much better than patchwork quilt pages.

            theraggededgeposted 2 months ago in reply to this

            When did he copy someone's work?

            Is it okay to mock someone whose first language isn't English by 'merely imitating' them?

            This isn't the first time I've seen a snarky comment by you to a newbie. He's trying his best and you shoot him down? I agree that some of them (copy & pasters/self promoters) deserve a good snark, but Mostafa doesn't. Otherwise we wouldn't be trying to help him.

            So, instead of being so mean, why don't you try to help instead? Otherwise, if you can't say anything nice... maybe you should avoid the feedback threads.

              well, if you copy and paste his first few paraagraphs into Google, the following page, from Afrisat Technologies comes up.

                i know all these information , its my job
                i just take some paragraphs to avoid grammar mistakes but i deleted them and made the article simpler

                  Never, ever take someone else's text, Mostafa. It's plagiarism, which is a polite term for theft. That alone will prevent your hub being approved and could mean a ban from HubPages. It is completely unacceptable.

                  If you do it again, none of us will help you. It must be in your own words, not a rewriting of someone else's hard work.

                  Do you understand?

    ok done

    1. theraggededge profile image95

      Took another look.

      Title is better, but you need to use title case, like this: The LNB : How Does It Work?

      Remove all instances of text-speak 'u' is not an acceptable substitution for 'you'.

      Still many grammatical errors, "Its function is to pick up the weak signals coming from the satellite and amplifies it to finally become a watching channel."

      "Its function is to amplify the signals received from the satellite so we can watch and hear the broadcast channel." or something like that.

      "And the question is where the LNB gets power?"

      "Where does the LNB get its power?"

      The problem is that there is an error in almost every sentence.

      Delete Firstly, Secondly, Thirdly, etc. Instead use 1. 2. 3.

      Make sure subtitles are in title case, as shown above.

      This is horrible:

      "It has four outputs. Hey, did you say that there are four outputs?

      Yes, four outputs . So what's the difference between it and the quad LNB? OK"

      "It has four outputs. However, the difference between the Quattro and the Quad LNB is this:"

      Also be consistent with using numbers. The correct way is to write all numbers nine and under in full. Numbers 10 and over are written as numerals. As I just did.

      Make sure you put a full stop/period at the end of every sentence.

      That's me done. Don't forget to use Grammarly and Hemingway apps. Just paste your text in to get suggestions.

      Let us know if you get it approved smile

          theraggededgeposted 2 months ago in reply to this

          No. No more now smile  As I said, there are grammatical errors in almost every sentence. You have to get them fixed.

    whats wrong with it now
    i think i did all the advices

      Sherry Hewinsposted 2 months ago in reply to this

      I see that you did attribute your photos, that's good. You didn't change Firstly, Secondly, etc. like theraggededge recommended.

      I assume that English is not your first language. That must make it very hard for you.

      This is your answer to the question : "what is the LNB?"

      "The LNB is important component of a satellite television system.

      LNB is an abbreviation for Low Noise Block,it sits on the end of an arm face the parabolic reflector (dish).

      The LNB is a combination of low-noise amplifier,frequency mixer,local oscillator and Intermediate Frequency IF."

      This is gobbledygook to me. I have no clue what you are trying to say. If I don't know what an LBN is, this is not going to tell me.

      I'm sorry, I know you are trying hard, but most people just won't read past that. Maybe you have been too ambitious with your first article. Perhaps you should tackle a simpler subject.
