I know "duplicate" means "substantial" portion of the hub appeared elsewhere. I hit duplicate before when I accidentally "republished" one of my own blog entries as a hub. However, here's a different problem.
I am writing a series of guides on 4G Phones in the US. I have divided up the information available into proposed 5 guides: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and misc (MetroPCS, US Cellular, etc.)
First 3 have no problem. 4th hub, the one on Verizon, was held back as "duplicate".

I have a consistent sidebar. I thought that was the problem, so I killed the sidebar on the Verizon one. It's still held back... So I wonder what's this "duplicate" on.
Is it the content or the format? I'm trying for a consistent format across this series of hubs. Was I adhering too close?
Is there a way to show some sort of a date when it was flagged like that, like "Hubpages staff have reviewed your hub on (date/time)"? So at least we know what's the problem? Maybe even a field like "hubpages staff feedback"?
I would suggest looking into possibility of somebody copying your article? and you're getting flagged for it. Not sure what else to explore other than send a email --> team @ hubpages dot com
