With all the recent changes, anyone know how long it takes for a new Hub to get approved and submitting it? I hit the publish button on Saturday morning. Literally 48 hours ago and it hasn't been approved by the "administrator". The hub has 1354 words, 3+ pictures, links distributed evenly, one map and 1 video and NO amazon or ebay capsules. Any thoughts good people of the forum?
Did you check for something tricky like ads that are not approved?
Are you still experiencing this problem, David?
I would expect that it should have been approved by now. I published a bunch two days ago as well and they have all been approved. How many hubs have you published? I believe that it gets faster the more you publish.
I'm confused here! Even after publishing 5 featured Hubs, do we still have to get approval for our new ones? I'm new here so please help me out. Sorry Ravid for hijacking this thread. I am just curious...
I wondering if HP is missing in action the last couple of days. At the end of last week a hub I put up a year and half ago that has been viewed by moderators repeatedly suddenly got pulled because of "watermark" (which I didn't/don't see) pictures. So I pulled one photo, resubmitted for publishing, then it went back to not published. I pulled the remaining photos on Friday or Saturday, hit submit and while it has been viewed over and over by moderators (since no one else can see it while not published), it still has not been published. I'm not sure if they are MIA or if they just don't want to have to republish a controversial hub.
well, i have published 2 hubs today, finished the last about an hour ago, and both are already featured... Not sure whats happening to yours!?
It's been a long-standing practice for HubPages mods/admin to actually go home on weekends. Never expect anything you report from late Friday night through Sunday night US Pacific time to be handled with any expediency.
And then remember that there will be huge queues of reports to get slogged through for all of Monday.
Is it still listed with the little spinning icon in your my account? If so it is likely a glitch.
If your Hub isn't Featured after 24 hours, send an email:
team@ hubpages.com (without the spaces)
You have mentioned links. Check them. There should not be more than two links per hub or check if it has any violation. Good luck.

I just learned that administrators will publish any comment we don't promptly decline so moderation will not protect hubs from abusive comments if we are away from HubPages for more than a few days.How can I get the automatic approval suspended when I go to the hospital to protect the hubs used in...

How do I know if my AdSense account has been approved?It looks like there is an affiliate code present, but in the e-mail it says its been partially approved.

For years I have been diligent about responding to questions left on my hubs. But now I've discovered comments are being published on my articles without appearing in my Comments section, so I look like I'm rude and ignoring readers who go to the effort of writing.Today I spent ages waiting for...

I have not logged in to this site for ages but see a ton of 'Admin Approved' comments. Is this new? Can I turn it off as it looks like I'm ignoring lots of comments.

Dear all,When I refresh my profile and see my latest contributions, I am always dejected to see the automatic listing stating: "You became the fan of XYZ and you left this fan mail which has not been approved."May I tactfully suggest a marginal amendment?"You became the fan of XYZ...
