    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub True story behind Take Off Malayalam movie (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

      Hi there,

      Remember that there is always a space after a comma and a period. If you don't add them, the words run into one and are probably why hubs are flagged for low quality, as the automated process simply can't read the text. There is also always a space before an opening parenthesis (like this).

      If you paste the text into Grammarly, MS Word, or the free LibreOffice and run the spell-checker, the missing spaces will be picked up. You can also turn on the spell-checker in your browser so you can make the edits right here on HP. For example, my spell-checker is working right now and has flagged 'Grammarly' and 'LibreOffice'.

      Make sure your title and sub-titles are in title case (Google it).

      Watch out for random capitalisation - 'The Film'... should be 'The film'.

      The second paragraph refers to 'above mentioned events', but no events were mentioned. The first paragraph needs to be more explicit in saying that the film is based on 'the capture of 46 Indian nurses by ISIS'.

      Hope that helps.

    There are numerous issues; grammar and punctuation are holding you back.

    Your first sentence:

    "The true facts (facts are true, otherwise they are not facts - true is redundant) based on which Take Off was inspired is (are) still not clear to many,(end of sentence - it runs on into the next one) in this article,i (space after comma and I is always capitalized) have tried to explain the true story behind the film and the grueling ordeal captured nurses had to go through."

    These kind of errors are repeated throughout.

    Your images look as though they've been lifted from news sites without permission - BBC, Reuters, CTV. You can only use images that are Creative Commons/Public Domain licensed.

    I suggest pasting your content into a program such Grammarly (it's free) to correct English mistakes. You should spend some time at the Learning Center here https://hubpageshelp.com/

    Thanks, Rupert, for your valuable insight, iI will proofread and cross check my Hub.
    Is it okay if I use images from Wikipedia?

    Only if they are free of copyright restrictions. Wikipedia images usually gives this information below the image. Other copyright-free sources are Pexels and Pixabay. Also Flikr has a filter for Creative Commons.
