I have a hub which is in danger of being flagged as substandard. It's a poem. Says it's too short. What should I do?
You might find this announcement helpful:
Perhaps add a preamble or postscript just to get the word count up?
You could discuss the poem/topic/word choice or just a little blurb about you or your other writing?
I would just ignore it. Those warnings are advisories designed to head off new user mistakes and patterns of abuse that we've seen. However, if you want the warning to go away you could add an introduction to the poem or an illustrative photo. Before a hub is actually unpublished for a violation it will still be reviewed by a person.
Thanks, everyone. I was surprised to see that message is what caused me to panic. Silly me!!!

I just had a hub flagged as substandard. I would like a better definition of such a hub. Why should someone who posts a u-tube video pass while someone who puts up a link to a useful and entertaining site on...

I would recommend as a new hubber, that when a hub is unpublished for being substandard, since someone had to review it first, that instead of giving a pre-recorded number of factors that MAY have caused it, that the...
