      I took a look at your article

      There are a lot of problems with it, I'm afraid.

      1. It's in the wrong category - Literature & Writing/How to Write/How to Write About Nature is not where it should be.

      2. Grammar and punctuation issues. Here is your first sentence, "Women look for young men that is tall ,handsome,broad shoulders, with money, have big house and cars and so on."

      Notwithstanding the dreadful generalisation of the sentence itself, the correct version is, "Women look for young men who are tall and handsome, have broad shoulders, plenty of money, a big house, cars and so on."

      3. The topic has been done to death and probably won't get past the Quality Assessment Process. See … ted-topics

      Suggestions: read the hub out loud to see if you can pick up some of the problems with phrasing, etc. Use an online grammar checker. Spend a lot of time at the Learning Center Delete this hub and start over. I'm sure you can do better than this.

      If you are really passionate about writing--which I think is entirely possible when a person feels they have valuable ideas to communicate, even if they lack the technical skill--you GET the technical skill.

      This will be an uphill battle, perhaps because you are a non-native speaker, or perhaps because you were never taught the necessary skills. By the way, if the latter, I don't feel that this is your fault. But if I can learn to do plumbing, without training or background knowledge, you can learn to write.

      How do you do this? Probably the best way--and the easiest in the long run--is to become a voracious reader of good literature. After awhile it will rub off on you. Finding good literature can be difficult, because there's so much crap out there. One easy way to avoid crap literature is to stick to the classics. I would suggest joining a book club in your community--libraries often host them--but the book club I attend seems to specialize in crap literature. A better idea is to check around your community's libraries and see if there is a writers' club near you. Nothing hones writing skills better than writing for a real audience that you meet with face-to-face.

    Well, I have many times made errors in English usage when posting a comment, and this is especially a problem when posting from your phone. And we have many non-native speakers here. And sometimes either the edit function expires or loads so slowly that you give up. BUT your comment is kind of a mess, grammatically speaking. You are a Hubber, not a Huber. Your second sentence should read, "I would like to know the specific area of my hub that needs adjustment when I am given a moderation alert." You've managed to cram four errors into two sentences. I don't see a way to look at the hub in question. I suggest you go over it carefully and perhaps ask for help.

    Of course you should feel free to note that I have thrice begun a sentence with a conjunction.

    I just read your hub.  I believe that even though this topic might be one of the hardest to write about because it has all been said before, it would be a better read if there were not all the grammatical problems.  Also the test at the end doesn't add to the content at all.
    Friend, I would if I were you, take a class on how to form a proper sentence.  Also it seems like you have said some things just to make it longer.  For example the first sentence in the communication paragraph. 
    I cannot quote it but it says something like talking in a verbal or non-verbal etc......Did you really feel the need to explain to everyone what communication is?  What is the point of adding that sentence, for it not only explains something that does not need explaining but it does so in a long drawn out way.  Mostly you need to work on the sentence structure and grammer.
    I am interested in what your first language is.  I know it cannot be english.  I speak multiple languages and it is just a need to know thing.

    The OP has made no changes to the hub, so it's never going to be featured. Strangely, he has commented on his own hub, saying, "I like this hubie..."
