    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article World's Top 10 Airports. What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    Also, even after editing my article I am not able to repost it for Featured Hubs Check? Can anyone inform me about the same??

    "Heya" is not an English word.

    Boldface should not be used in regular text and triple exclamation marks don't belong anywhere.

    Capital letters should only be used to start a sentence or with proper nouns.

    Images must be Creative Commons licensed or in the public domain.

    Also, I am not getting the link where I can again post my article to check whether it gets approved for being a Featured Hub or not!

        Still I'm not able to resubmit my article for Approval. I just don't know why!

          You have to go into Edit (click on the pencil next to the hub title), make a change, then click on 'Done Editing'. That submits it automatically.

    If it isn't personal, what sort of view numbers have you gotten for your article?

      He won't be getting any traffic as it hasn't been approved. The only visitors will be from this forum and QAP.

    Just having a quick look at your article...

    The image source is not the title of the article, it's where the image came from.

    Images must be top quality. Pixelated, blurry photos won't be acceptable. They must also be legal-to-use on a commercial site like HP or you could find yourself landed with a demand for payment from the copyright owner.

    Don't copy or rewrite text from elsewhere. Some of yours looks to be taken from Wikipedia. Articles must be original and completely in your own words, not thin re-writes.

    You have way too much bold text. It's horrible. This alone will prevent your hub being approved.

    Many grammatical errors throughout.  Random capitalisation, non agreement of tenses, etc.
    Use Grammarly to fix them or, better still, have it proofread by someone fluent in English.

    Remove unnecessary links. Don't send readers off to Wikipedia. Your article should be complete without sending traffic off-site for more information. In any case, if they want to find out more about particular organisations, they can search for it themselves.

    Hope that helps.

      Hello, where did you find the link to Wikipedia?

        Every section had a link to Wikipedia; now there's only one that I can see.

        "Incheon International Airport is built on a northwestern island of South Korea. The airport stands on a man-made piece of land between Yeongjong and Yongyu Islands."

        You can't use images that are copyright. The image used with the text above has been lifted from another site. You need permission to use it. If you go to the main site, Korea Conventions, at the bottom of the page you will see this:

        "FOR INQUIRIES OR COMMENTS ON THE WEBSITE, PLEASE CONTACT US.
        COPYRIGHT 2016 KOREA TOURISM ORGANIZATION. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED."

        That means you are breaking copyright law. You could be sued.

        Make sure ALL your images are legal-to-use.

    Honestly, I liked the content of your article. It's very informative. I loved the tabular format you have used.
    The article needs reworking as rightly pointed out by others.
    Get rid of all the links. Your article gives all the necessary information (which should be the case). Outgoing links don't serve the purpose. (will be considered spammy).

    Get rid of the bold text. That distracts attention.

    You have been informed about the legal use of images and the correct use of Grammar too.
    Good luck.

    I have a question. Why don't you follow the advice regarding boldface text given by Rupert and others 9 days ago?
