    I suggested something similar some time ago but it fell on deaf ears. This isn't hard to implement now that you have developed your style tips and stuff. All you need to add to the "publish now" button is a formula returning true if the word count is more than 100 and false if it's less than a hundred. Or you could set your word limit. The formula isn't hard to write, anyone who knows HTML can write it...as a matter of fact anyone who know MS Excel can write it.

    This is a prime example of why I am re-suggesting the feature. Though we have the QAP program, these hubs get through the system. Anyone searching HP can find it.

      Great suggestion! It's not even in the image category and the images are obviously taken off Google and they are pixelated.

      It seems to me that if they pass QAP, they pass QAP.  If they pass it in error, QAP needs to be fixed.

      We do, after all, allow video and photo hubs which might legitimately have under 100 words.

        I think there is a rule somewhere that states that each photo should be accompanied by at least 50 words of description....too tired to find it in the learning center. This huB has no text at all except for the title...lol

      I must confess, I thought we already had a minimum word count except in the poetry and image sections.    I know I used to get a warning if I saved a Hub with too little content.  Has that changed?

        The warning is still there but apparently people are still ignoring it and publishing. I'm just saying, stop the hub from being published then.

          I agree 100%.   If you recall, Hubs used to be unpublished for being "substandard" and one of the criteria was insufficient content.  I guess I assumed that the warning would automatically trigger a notification to the moderators.  Clearly not. 

          Personally I would make the minimum word count much higher.  Some other sites have a lower limit of 300 or 400 words.

            I was going to suggest similar figures but I know I would get a lot of negative suggestions...lol I did suggest this some time ago and the thread just died big_smile

              It's very odd, because I'm sure you remember plenty of discussions in the forums where staff said insufficient text would result in a Hub being unpublished, except in the poetry and photo sections.  So I'd have thought it would be a fundamental component of QAP.  *Sigh*

                Yes, I'd have thought that, too.

                  I remember somewhere being told about the word limit too, awhile back. I second this suggestion, as it would drag down the quality of OUR content.....

    I'm just not into hub genocide hmm I think all writings should be allowed leeway upon it's web debut without having to spend 100 hrs on HP to produce 'grades' for privilege to have one's writings seen online. js

      Cardisaposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      Okay, I see your point but just as some writers here have to wait to have their quality hubs featured and some with real potential must edit to re-feature, at least the newbie must show some sort of writing. 100 words is like a FaceBook post, not even basic school essays are that short.

      The minimum words, except for poetry, to trigger the below standard warning is 100 words. I am saying use that to hinder trash like the above hub to hit the system. With the standard for quantity placed on content sites, it can't hurt.

      Dame scribe, this reply that Cardisa just made was 95 words. Do you think that is an appropriate length for a hub?

    I would suggest that if the system in place is QAP, fix QAP so it does not pass rubbish hubs for any reason, not just length.
