I know it's a Saturday, but can any Admins chime in as to whether there's more of a delay in getting things through the QAP? I have two hubs that should have been approved by now, and the arrows are still spinning.
Yes, they should pass muster - they're much better than the three or more hubs I flagged a day or two ago in the Hopper that had fewer than 400 words each (one had about 179 words, start to finish).
There's quite a queue. It's coming down slowly but surely.
Edit: I'm not an administrator, but I'm rating today and I see the queue numbers
Dear Ms Goodfleisch
Thank you for your recent enquiry.
Please rest assured that your Hubs will be "featured" as soon as possible. I'm sure you understand that it is a busy and difficult job to process the large number of Hubs that come our way, but we do our best under trying circumstances.
There do appear however to be one or two issues with your Hubs. For your future reference please note that it would help us process your work more efficiently if you could abide by the following criteria;
1. Please include at least one Indian "Auntie" picture per Hub. To tell the truth a good half dozen guarantees featured status within the hour but one will do at a push (if you can't find any then a picture of a man in a white hat and a pair of frilly knickers will normally suffice).
2. Length. Your Hubs are far too long and use far too many complicated words. Shortening them would help us tremendously as we have less to read, which lets us process your work more quickly.
3. Grammar. Your grammar would appear to be excellent, which quite frankly is completely useless to us as it therefore means that most of our raters can't understand what you are writing about. Would you mind awfully slipping in a few "grammos" so that they can at least make a stab at guessing what you are wittering on about?
Assuring you of our best attention at all times
The HubPages MTurkers QAP Team.
P.S. I note that you are currently writing Hubs on time sensitive subjects such as Sinkholes and the Papal Election. We will of course make every effort to publish your Hubs while these stories remain "hot" topics. So will two weeks next Friday be OK?
Thanke you for the ansur to my quetion. I uderstand the prolem now. UR so kul to tel me!!!!! hehehe!
I jus tuk a gr8 cource in how to spel lik a gud wryter. I hope it helpz!
Well golly be Jebus Horatio I sure am glad you showed up. Maybe y'all can helps me with a question.
A wile ago I used to go a visiting this big place with lots of buildings. All the cute guys hung out there.
Well anyways the other day i was gone to check my mails. It waz bout time for my monthly scription to Hot Indian Aunties Weekly to come in... Well glory be if that big ole place with all them big buildings dindt send me a letter. Itz got all this fancy pantzy writing all over it and a big ole sticker like the one on my parole papers. But I'll be cornswaggled if I can figure it out.
First they saiz something bout a Bachelor... which I dont get AT ALL. I'm a girl and I been happily married to the old man for a coons age. Then it says something bout arts which is real funny since I cant draw a straight line with a ruler...ya know? It's got the word English on it. At first I thought it was like them machines that give out cash and if I pressed it maybe I could understand the hole thing better... ya know since with all that fancy scribling it looked a bit like a frenchie wrote it. But when I pushed on the word don'tcha know I put my finger clean through the page.
it says it gives me rights and privilidges... you think it might have something to do with the NRA?
Anywayz if you can help me figure out what it means I'd be might apprecitive
Until then i'm gonna be sitting at the tv that pa attached a typewriter to sliding these bar things on all these peoples blog things. Didya know Amazon pays me five whole cents for every one I do? By the end of the week I'll have enough to buy some beer down at the quiky mart
I've had a quick word with the powers that be and we've decided to double your pay to 10 cents per Hub purely on the basis that anybody who can shoehorn the word "cornswaggled" in to a forum post is ok in my book.

Ok, here goes. I rarely get involved in the forums, I guess I am a little on the shy side. I have been here almost 2 years now and have published over 80 hubs. I have only had 2 ever unfeatured and have deleted those and a couple more that I thought just were not up to par. My...

I was under the impression that hubs had to be informational but have learned otherwise during the past few days. I'm actually glad about what I learned tonight and in no way am I denigrating any hub style. "Informational" is not the right word I feel.....but I can't think of...

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in Dec 2014, so it should be these have not been picked up by Google as organic...

produces: anxiety!C'mon, Hubpages! I've been a good boy. I've improved my hubs. I've been "awarded" a Level 2 Commentator (oh joy.) My personal story of near death and survival is consistently coming up TWICE (original hub and five year follow up) in Google search on page one out of over...

I have recently been in hospital and I notice since I have been back my Author Score has dropped to 78. I am sorry to have to say that I have decided to leave Hubpages because I am going to concentrate on my poetry as I don't seem to have what it takes to get the hubpages traffic that others get as...

I am so frustrated right now. Here I am drinking my morning coffee and reading through my HP offerings. And, there they are! Person after person, with names that I have no chance to pronounce, writing articles (usually their first) that just the title alone, MAKES NO SENSE!OK, all of you bleeding...
