How long does an article have to be in order not to get flagged as too short? I just tired to post a 700 word article, but it was rejected. Or do they look at things like graphics and headlines as well as word length?
I reckon there is more to it than the simple explanation you have made. The length of the article should not be the reason it is rejected.
There are many reasons it could get rejected and the length being way down on the list. I personally have never had an article rejected and have published almost a 100 on many controversial subjects.
Some of the easier to understand reasons would be racial or sex content, lack of editing (punctuation, spelling), inflammatory content, attacking or slandering a specific person.
Lack of references or links to quotations, improper use of photos (links), too self promotional.
Your best bet is to simple send an email to hub pages and ask them what the problem is, they have a very dedicated and helpful staff and have always been quick with an answer . . . for me at least.
700 words is definitely within rules. I have a few that are 300 words or so.
What was the exact message you were flagged with? It could be to do with duplicate content, over promotion, saturated topic etc.

What are the rules regarding publishing articles that I've written for other sites? As a ghost writer I have written countless articles, many of them for clients who haven't had me sign any type of exclusivity contract. Can I publish them on HubPages?

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

Ok I am at my end! I seem to be having an issue with HP. Everytime I flag something I end up getting flagged. Yesterday I published my 2nd part in a 3 part series on Jeffrey Dahmer. Ads were taken and I was fine with that considering he killed people, even though I see plenty of serial killer hubs...

I have a few Lenses over on Squidoo. I am not impressed with them at all. I would like to transfer them here and then delete my account there. In doing so will my hubs be flagged and points taken away because they would be considered not fresh? They are mine and I just want to move...
