My 3rd article is still in the process of being featured or not. I have noticed that a Green Pen icon is on my account page next to the article. I have seen that a poll and Amazon capsule have been removed.
Have I done anything wrong? Is it likely to not get featured now?
The green pen just means it has been edited. You can accept the edits or not. It's possible that they have added a link to the Amazon product in the text.
You haven't done anything wrong and your hub is more likely to be featured with the edits.
You also should have received an email detailing that edits were done to that hub. Make sure you are allowing emails from HubPages so you don't miss anything important. The weekly newsletter mentioned the green pen a few weeks ago.
You can also click on the pen to see the changes that were made. But if you change it back you may cause the hub to become unfeatured.
In my experience, the changes have always helped get more traffic and more sales revenue.
There is a good chance that your hub will be selected to be moved to a niche site soon, since it was edited. All my hubs that had some snipping done had been moved and doing much better. So this is a good thing. Be glad when you see these green pens.

It would be useful if there was an option to save a published article after edits have been made, but not completed so that edits could be completed later and the tab closed. Then an "update online version" button would update the live version after completion of edits. Maybe edits...

I reckon HP want us to keep updating our hubs after they have been edited and moved to niches sites. I reckon they are also a little afraid that some hubbers will do more harm than good in the changes that they make.I've no doubt that many hubbers are anxious about changing editors edits.My...

Can you explain why, after I asked you not to edit my hubs you have gone in on many occasions and changed them to the point - I hardly wrote any of it. I look at my earning from Amazon and when you started your changes I was earning approx $120 from amazon sales ---- now after your wisdom,...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

All I want to do is add an Amazon module to this article: https://hubpages.com/holidays/gifts-for-4th-graders. Without the Amazon module it is featured. With the product currently at the end of the article and a testimonial about the product, the article is no longer...
