I keep getting notifications that my hubs have been selected to be moved. Then a non-specific list of improvements. Now, for longer hubs, this is cumbersome. Trying to wade through 1500-2500 words to hoping to get it right, just doesn't work for me. It would be far more helpful and time-saving if the specific areas within the hub could be flagged, and then one could go in and make the specific changes, instead of trying to guess what is wanted.
I can't see doing this for each article. Sorry.
The email that you get is generic, BUT there is usually a sentence at the end which provides specific advice.
They want you to check the article for the generic points BUT what you really need to fix is that specific issue or issues.
I can understand you not feeling you have time, but bear in mind the editors are looking at hundreds of Hubs. They want that specific issue fixed, but they also want you to do a sanity check on the whole article, because they don't have time to nit-pick every little spelling error or misplaced capsule.
The main things to look at, in my experience, is to go into edit mode and check your Hub in Mobile preview. For older Hubs, you may not have done when writing them originally - now HubPages tells us it's crucial because most of their views are coming from mobile devices. If you've used right-floated capsules, you'll find they often appear in the wrong place in mobile view and spoil the Hub.

I noticed that hubs in niche sites no longer include the "More by this author" section below the hub. Is this just an oversight or was it a decision to drop it on niche sites?

Many people have asked how the new sites are performing so far. The latest Newsletter provides a general overview, but I'd also like to invite Hubbers who have had Hubs moved to discuss your experiences here. Overall,...

Is there a common standard or set guidelines that all the editors use to select articles? Or do all the different network sites/editors have their own guidelines for their own sites similar to when we submit our own...

I have an article that an editor has made substantial changes too. Including adding a bio that they wrote themselves. I have not seen an edit this bad in quite some time on one of my articles, and I do not want to go...

I was under the impression that we could only submit one hub every two weeks for niche sites. I submitted a hub and an editor replied with changes that I needed to make before it could be moved. As I'm...
