    It would be far more helpful and less cumbersome if, when a hub was selected for inclusion in one of the new HubPages network sites, instead of a list of suggested changes, specific areas needing attention were flagged right in the hub.

    I received one such notice and the curator suggested I break up blocks of text. I checked and as I most times do, my hub WAS broken up into different sections, with a variety of different offerings. So, I had no way of knowing what particular section wasn't up to snuff.

    She also suggested non-blurry photos. I checked and couldn't find which photo appeared blurred.

      Oddly enough, I received the opposite feedback today. The editor didn't like my use of one-sentence paragraphs.

      But readability scores, which Google apparently uses, encourage short paragraphs of one or two sentences.

        I have also been told some of my pictures are blurry. But they are new ones I tried to update older hubs. And normally when an image is blurry, you can see it when your hub is in edit mode. I didn't get a message about the images in edit mode. I think it depends on what moderator you get.

      The first hub I posted vaguely said it had "spammy elements", yet under the definitions I actually couldn't find where those elements were within my article.  I have nothing else to go on. I do believe that, especially as a new hubber, it would be quite useful for Hubpages to implement these editorial comments into the articles themselves if at all possible.

        Spammy elements ALWAYS  means they have a problem with either a link or a product capsule.  It means the link(s) or product(s) are not closely enough related to the main topic of the Hub.

          Thanks! I will do further investigation. I read the work over and personally have realized that it could use further work as well. I appreciate your feedback.

        It seems they use scripted responses, so without being specific, this is too vague in some cases.

      I too find the suggest edits are vague.  It is boiler plate. It would be much better if the edit suggestions were just a little more specific. I have to guess at what is wanted.  I spent 3 hours redoing a hub yesterday--new pictures and total reformatting--and I'm not sure if what I did made things worse or better. (Admittedly, this one was unusual-it usually takes less than a hour to do the edits.)

        Do you know if they did away with snipping? I found that was working very well, and eliminated guesswork.

        It is annoying to be told that text needs to be broken into capsules when that has already been done, and to read that photos are blurry, when they aren't. Or to read a suggestion to shrink a photo that isn't as clear, when you have already done that.

          They have probably not done away with "snipping." I had a hub snipped and moved just two days ago. I think if the changes desired are very minor, the Edit Pro will do it.  If they want more extensive changes, you get the vague boilerplate.
