Hi, I made a new hub today and it was un featured due to quality, It's the smallest hub I have wrote to date at 856 words, but there's no more to be said, I don't want to waffle on when not needed.
Anyway, question is, when I make edits, will it automatically be resubmitted for checking? as I obviously want it featured.
Thanks in advance
I have revised it and it still came back as poor quality, I just don't get it

Hi, Claire - I checked your hub, and the topic looks good. I'm wondering if the QAP reviewers are rushing through hubs (without reading your intent) and thought it appeared promotional? It's not, but the lead language and the series of images about shows might look ad-like?
Here are a few suggestions:
HP prefers titles of hubs & subheads to have caps in the main words. That's an easy edit (might be something they noticed - even if it's nit-picky).
Consider using fewer logo-looking images and look for some YouTube clips of some of the shows.
If you're linking to commercial sites in the list of where to register, maybe get rid of links & just give the info?
Consider revising the lead sentence or two to sound less promotional. Maybe you could lead with something like, "Are you planning a trip to the UK on a limited budget? If you're interested in some low-cost entertainment, consider registering for free tickets . . ." etc.
I don't know if these ideas would help, but I definitely think the topic of your hub would be great to feature.
Best of luck!
Thanks so much, I was hoping there would be something I had missed that would be an easy edit. I hate that you can write a good (imo) article from scratch and have to mess about with it when (imo) it's great as it is
It's now featured, I made it over 1000 characters and BOOM it got featured. I didn't make any other changes.

On Friday we rolled out a way to quickly solicit feedback on Hubs that aren’t Featured for quality. If you have a Hub that is not Featured, all you need to do is click on the link at the bottom of the email you received. Clicking the link will post a brief message to the Improving Your Hub Forum...

I am so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the circle? I removed 1 of the 2 Zazzle links and another to a blog which may have been...

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

I just wrote a hub on blogging. I did feature Janine Huldie as one who did my blog. Is this considered over promotional? I just submitted this morning and the little circle appeared. Any ideas here?

One of my Hubs was un-featured after four years of being featured. Reason: poor content?!OK, but when I tried to edit it, it says: Sorry, you can not edit your hub while an editor is working on it.This happened a few days ago and I still can't edit it!The saddest part is that this is my most...

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in the questions and forums and didn't see anything. I am not a former Squidoo person...
