    "This Hub was chosen to be professionally edited by HubPages! To learn more about HubPro, check out the FAQ."

    And after they edited it...and I made no changes....

    "This Hub is not featured because it does not meet our quality standards."

    So I deleted the Hub.

    This isn't the first time this has happened.

    You professionally edit my Hub...then you unfeature it.

      Somehow I'm not surprised. The word count goals should have been our first clue. 750 words is obviously a better read than 749 words.

    Wow. This is the first I've heard of this. Didn't think this could happen. But I suppose even the best edits cannot determine if and when traffic will improve. But you did say quality, right? Not engagement. It definitely doesn't seem fair though. What time span are we talking about between editing and unfeatured status? I wouldn't have deleted it, though, until more information is supplied by staff. I hope it works out.

      Thanks jan.
      The only reason I deleted it is that I am tired of things like this happening and dont have time to second guess what HP is doing.
      I have no idea how long it was.
      Not very long between them "fixing it" and unfeaturing it...a month maybe?

    I'm sorry for your frustration. However, I have no record of editing your hub in HubPro.  I believe Anazon capsules were snipped.  Snipping is an attempt to help your Hub pass the QAP, but it is not exhaustive as there could be other quality issues that snipping cannot help. I hope that explains things. I know Hubbers confuse HubPro and snipping often.

      Well it looks like it was edited on June 17, 2016.
      But like I said, this isn't the first time and it's easier just to delete it.
      And yeah, when it says, "This Hub was chosen to be professionally edited by HubPages! To learn more about HubPro, check out the FAQ."...we might get confused about what was done.
      Maybe if Snipping was a separate thing it would help.
