Is there a way to edit my email settings? Every time I edit a hub, I eventually get some sort of "We've reviewed your hub and it can pretty much continue to be on thisverticalsite." I tend to edit in batches so I'll get maybe 10 or 20 of these emails. Those are really the emails I get too many of, so I tend to ignore emails from HP. Is there a way I could just get emails like, "Ummm your article has gone down the toilet and we are removing it from thisverticalsite"?
@melbel: I can relate. When I publish a hub, I get virtually the same email telling me that my hub will be featured, but it has spammy elements. Just this evening, I got that email, but I had NOT written anything that HP would call spammy.
So I looked back at the hub and made more non-spammy changes and sent HP an email and explained my process.
One of the editors sent back and said that my hub was going to be reviewed and featured.
Obviously, with 10 or 20 emails, that tells me that you must write numerous hubs each day . . .Wow! I am really impressed.
Keep up the fine work.
Ken, if they say it's spammy, it means you've included a link or a product that they don't approve of. The easy way to avoid the problem is not to add links or Amazon capsules. The alternative is to study up on how to use them properly. My Hub on The Basic Rules will help you with that, if you want.
I like knowing if I'd made a mistake. That's really helpful. What's annoying is that nothing has changed and my hub can continue to be featured.
I'm constantly updating my hubs. I kind of keep an inventory of them in the back of my mind and think, "Oh, a better way to word that would be." Or, "today, I'm going to updated my hubs to make them more fresh and modern" or something like that. I actually write little new stuff anymore, but with a couple hundred hubs, it's easy to update several of them at once, thus the numerous emails.
I'm updating stuff at the moment and I usually work on a few at a time, over a period of days. Luckily, I'm not getting too many emails. So. I'm hoping they are not going mad on the oversight.
I would hate to put an editor through the ordeal of checking pages over and over again, when they could be doing something more useful.
LOL Not long ago I went through all 163 of mine, over about 3 weeks, editing for grammar, spelling and, most of all, right shifted photos and other capsules.
Talk about a slew of emails! That put the large majority into the QAP and the eyes of the editors and boy, did I ever hear from them!

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...

This is a two-part question/discussion-starter.First - I recently saw that in my "feedback" section, there was a suddenly much higher number of hubs marked "funny." I don't mind this feedback,...

I just updated my HubPages profile a couple days ago and in my profile linked to some of my favorite hub topics that I wrote about. Is this bad to do this since on the profile page we have those same hubs randomly come...

Published a hub on Oklahoma (please don’t get started on how it might be too generic – I had fun doing it). It became the template for my following hubs on Arizona and New Mexico. The Oklahoma one...

I don't worry about hubscores as long as my hubs get featured the first time I hit "publish". I know the score can start off low but can steadily climb over time. Curiosity has finally gotten the better of me...
