Need way for staff to comment on unpublished hubs

    When a hub was unpublished, there was just this generic warning / note on top, even though the warning was put in by a human. Many times, the hubber's confused about what the warning's about. A hub can be pretty darn long, and some of the comments can reach hundreds, even thousands long!

    Why not let that human reviewer (HP staff) put in a short note that explains the violation or whatever it was? That would cut down a LOT on questions to team HP email account.

    For example, instead of just "Hate Speech", let the review select "Hate Speech", then type in "Clean up those personal attack comments"

    Instead of just "Subject Not Allowed", the reviewer can put in a note: "No promotion of MLM, even tips on how to choose one."

      There is currently a mechanism to place notes for author's related to Hubs when a moderator reviews a Hub.

      We try to put in notes when we feel there is specific things that could be confusing, but as you have witnessed, we do not post specific notes for every Hub we review.

      Thanks for the feedback.

    I agree with this.  Since it is personally being seen by a human, a specific comment would really help.  It would save us a lot of frustration, and it would help HP since they wouldn't have to deal with us not correcting the issue correctly since we didn't know what the problem is, and getting lots of emails asking for specifics.

    I had a hub unpublished because of unrelated links.  I deleted the RSS capsule and took out many links that I thought might be an issue.  It turned out to be a link that I thought was very relevant since I had discussed it in the hub.  By then, all the other ones I had deleted were also gone, and they didn't have to be.

    It would be wonderful to be pointed to the right direction from the beginning.
