I've recently posted two poems. One was very short, the other a bit longer. Both were flagged as substandard due to their length and I received a warning they may be taken down because they are too short to support outbound links. I've never had this problem when posting poetry before. Anyone else in the same boat?
The length of the poems are not the problem, the outbound links are. In order to support outgoing links you need to have substantial content. It is not a good idea to place links in poetry hubs unless you have 300 or more words. So remove the links and you should be fine.
Another suggestion would ne to add some more content to your hub, like why the poem is important to you or what inspired you to write it. Something that will make the page seem less empty.
Thanks. I haven't posted any links, other than to the source for my photos, so I guess that's the trouble. I appreciate you taking the time to answer.

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...
