Hub is not getting published

    Can anyone tell me why my hub is not getting published? I edited 3 to 4 times and even corrected the grammatical mistakes but still the problem is there. My hub: http://amanda1505.hubpages.com/hub/iPho … e-Industry

      Please don't be offended if yours is not published. The admin controls whatever appears on his or her site. If your article is not of interest to him or her, it will definitely never be published. That doen't mean your standard is questionable. Just like a god fearing man will never allow a Buddhist article to appear on his site. I hope this explanation helps.

        Potiongho:  You could not be more wrong.  The HP team does not censor hubs unless they violate the TOS.  Your religion or point of view have nothing to do with whether your articles get published.  Furthermore, what interests the moderators has nothing to do with anything.  You are way off base here.

          I submitted one title: Basics for Piping Engineer. It was not accepted and no reason was ever given. Many editors are thinking that we simply copy and paste articles from the internet and put our name after it. They are more suspecious when you write perfect Engliah and you are Chinese.

            chasmacposted 5 years agoin reply to this

            The title "Basics for Piping Engineer" is not perfect English.
            At first, you accused HubPages of only accepting articles that were personally of interest to the moderators. TimeTraveller2 rightly contradicted you.
            Then you implied it was because perfect English written by a Chinese person looks suspicious so they refused it. Your own imperfect title proves that not to be the case, either.
            Try to keep things in perspective. An article about piping engineering is perfectly acceptable on HubPages. If you are an experienced piping engineer, we can assume that you know what you're talking about, which makes the article even more worthy of being published. The only things that could prevent its publication, (assuming you haven't done anything that violates their terms)  is the quality of your writing and presentation of the article. Was it really written in perfect English? Your title suggests that it wasn't. Did it contain properly attributed photos or diagrams? Did it contain enough text? These are the things you should be considering rather than assuming HubPages staff refused it because none of them has any interest in piping, or that they automatically refuse perfectly written articles by Chinese authors.

                chasmacposted 5 years agoin reply to this

                Where? Your article is unpublished. Nobody can see your article to tell you your mistakes. We only know the title because you told us. The title contains one mistake; "engineer" should be "engineers".
                From what you've written here, your English is certainly good enough to produce well-written articles. That's assuming you would spot and  fix mistakes such as "Enlish", "Engliah" and "suspecious", all of which the spell-checker would have warned you about, just as its warning me right now as I write your mistakes.

      Hey amanda1505!
      Sorry for any confusion; your Hub is not Featured because it did not pass the Quality Assessment, and if you have published fewer than five Featured Hubs, any Hub that dies not become Featured will be unpublished.
      We call this Boot Camp- it's designed to help you get up to speed with our quality guidelines.
      You can read more about Featured Hubs, the Quality Assessment Program, and Boot Camp here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Featured-Hubs

    I did not use engineers because I was and am still not writing for your company. That is not a mistale there. Regarding my article you have not seen it and you were already able to confirm my English was not perfect. This is a stupid thing to do. You are talking rubbish. Regarding the wrong spelling for English, you are now definitely sure that I was not able to spell that word correctly. Please keep you mouth shut, and not trying to impress others on the internet.

        It does not matter if this is the correct page since I can see that you are also reading it. The fact that you condemned my article saying the English was not perfect, without having read that article also tells a lot about you. I now know you are a <personal attacks snipped> guy. You are also <personal attacks snipped>.
        Please just tell the Admin to terminate my account so that I don't have to mingle with <personal attack snipped> like you.

        1. chasmac profile image95
          chasmacposted 5 years agoin reply to this

          No - I didn't condemn your article. I said that the title "Basics for Piping Engineer" was not perfect. Obviously, I can't comment on the article as it's unavailable - which is why I didn't. It could be perfectly written for all I know. In any case, it doesn't have to be perfect. The occasional mistake in the body of an article won't result in that article being refused. A mistake in the title, however, is far more critical for, hopefully, obvious reasons. It's a pity you couldn't see that I was trying to help you but instead resorted to name calling and insults. I think the fact I have remained civil throughout tells a lot about both of us.

            pohtionghoposted 5 years agoin reply to this

            Basics for Piping Engineer is a correct title. I had one piping engineer under me and I had to assist him because he came from the U with no field exposures, like all those black Indians from India. You did not read my article and you said the English was not perfect. You are just one of those editors on the internet whom I prefer to call cheats. I don't have to show you my article and if you think I am rude, please have my account deleted. I have better people to work with.

              "Basics for A Piping Engineer" or "Basics for Piping Engineers" would be correct. Your title doesn't make sense.

              If you come on to the forums, you'll find many experienced writers who have a lot of hubs, traffic and income. If you come into the forum stating incorrect information, you will be picked up on it.

                I don't know what your English level is. Please don't talk rubbish because I don't believe it must be "a engineer or the engineers". The next thing you want to hit me would be: AN ENGINEER,  if I had used a engineer.
                Do you have a master degree on English Language? Why are you still writing for Hubpages?

              "Basics for Piping Engineer" is incorrect grammar.  Correct grammar would be "Basics for A Piping Engineer".  It is only a minor error but it is an error.  You have several other errors in your forum posts. They are all minor, but if you have a similar number of minor grammatical errors in your Hub, that could be why it was not published.

              There is no need to insult people who tell you this:  they are trying to be helpful, by suggesting reasons why your Hub was not published.  It is certainly true that we cannot know for sure, because we cannot see your article - it is just a suggestion. 

              Rudeness on these forums can result in being banned, so I advise you not to use bad language and I suggest you edit your previous posts to remove the insults.

          Wow.  Part of doing well on HubPages is participating in a civil manner, getting along with others and contributing valuable critique and praise.  Your attitude in this thread won't win you any sympathy and name-calling will in all likelihood get you a ride to the gate.

            You don't know head or tail about this matter. One boastful guy who has no gut to use his real name on the internet said my topic " Basics for Piping Engineer" was wrong English. He said it must be for Engineers. In his country, any one who works near the engine is an engineer. I have no respect for this type of <personal attack removed>. He also condemned my article saying that the English was " not perfect English" and he did not read my article. Isn't this a sign of <personal attack removed>? If my reply is too harsh, please tell the Admin to delete my account. Surely there are better people elsewhere? And he also said I was not able to spell the word : English.

              When you make untrue statements about what has been said, keep in mind that everyone can see exactly what has actually been said. It's all here in this thread and one further up the page. So when you tell people that I condemned your article without having read it (due to it being unpublished), everyone can see that that's not the case. I pointed out the error in your title, not in the body of the article.
              Similarly, when you tell people that I said you weren't able to spell the word "English", they can see that that is also not true, and that I was actually complimenting your overall ability by saying your English is good enough to write articles, assuming that you spotted and fixed mistakes of the sort you made in your posts, e.g., "Engliah". Obviously, that's just pointing out a typo as an example of what can cause hubs to be unpublished. It's not an accusation that you don't know how to spell the word "English"correctly. It's all there for everyone to read, so will you now stop making false statements?
              Finally, your personal insults, like you, mean nothing to me.

      Chasmac is correct.

      This site is designed to have high quality articles with good English like you'd find in a magazine. Your forum posts indicate you don't have a great grasp of English, and that you're making wrong assumptions about why your content was removed. Maybe you need to look at the learning centre and the FAQ so you can understand how this site really works.

      Amanda, we can't really help you because we can't see your hub.

      All we can do is point you in the direction of the learning center.  The staff has already said that it was unpublished because it failed QAP while you were in bootcamp.  That's all they are going to say.

      Amanda, I'd hazard a guess that it's in a restricted or saturated topic. iPhones and things like that are written about all over the web, meaning that hubs about them are held to a much higher standard. If you're rehashing the same old information, it's not helping anyone.
