    I have been trying to pass the quality assessment for Operation Spiritus of Delaware. I would like to pass and get my article featured. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    The link they sent me in an email is: http://hubpages.com/politics/operation- … -Delaware.  Also if you scroll down on this page and you will see a picture of a Delaware State Police Car. Clicking on that brings the article up too. Thank you so much for responding, and offering to help me.

    Finally a success, that link works. Thank you again for offering to help me. I just published an article about crime in a certain part of Delaware, with dates and news reels, it got almost 3,500 views in 3 days. So I must be missing something I need to put in this article.  Any help would  be appreciated.

    Is this article still not Featured?

    If so, I'm wondering if this statement is the problem:  "All information, in this article was taken from the news reels of the Police Departments, and the Department of Justice, as well as news articles reporting the news."    That makes it sounds as though you've just copied your text from those sources. Is that what you've done?  If so, it's against HubPages TOS because it counts as duplicate content.   

    By the way, if you are going to quote from a newspaper article, then you need to quote just a small section and then provide a link to the full article.   You're breaching copyright if you reprint the whole thing.

    Thanks so much, I think I might know how to fix it now, but I have to figure out how I can let the readers know this is not my opinion, but fact. But I will be working on it. This article in particular is important to me to show what is going on in this small state I live in.
    This is also important to me, because the gentlemen who led the crime cocaine network is also the half brother of the man who murdered my son. Murder at Murder Brook acres tells that personal story.  I will try to put more media content of this huge drug bust, plus make sureI have not taken information straight from any police of news sources.  Thank you and wish me luck, this will take a little doing and a great deal of thought.  Thanks Again.

      Tell people what the facts are then come up with  something that adds a worthwhile and original dimension, like background info, extra pics of the area or people, maps etc

      HP does not encourage pure news articles.

      Also, try to keep it balanced and support any assertions with references.

      I took a look at your other Hubs and now appreciate your purpose, I am so sorry for your loss.

      I would advise deleting that callout capsule completely.  Then when you quote information from a source, give them the credit for that particular piece of information, e.g.

      On (date), the Department of Justice issued a statement advising that ......... (you can read the statement in full on their website, http.......)   

      or

      The Chesapeake Daily published an article on ...... date, announcing that......... (for the full transcript, visit ......)

      and so on.

    Thank you so much I will continue working on it. I did not include a picture although their was one published of the offender himself, because I did not know if I was allowed to do that. Would I be able to post that?  I thought that would be putting a face with the offender, but wasn't sure if it was legal?
