    I submitted an article nearly 5 weeks ago after an editor requested that it be edited. Should it take this long to be submitted to a Niche site, or if it is no longer considered, is a notification issued?

      I've been waiting on one for a while, too. I also have a few new and submitted Hubs on another account that don't seem to have been looked at yet.

      There must be a backlog or something. But, on the other hand, I had a Hub moved to Exemplore within hours after submitting it. So, it's hard to guess what's going on.

      Best just to be patient, I suppose.

        I also had a hub shifted to a niche site yesterday only a few hours after submitting (with a few basic edits). Hopefully there's a "lost hub" dept. somewhere in the HubPages machine which eventually gets sifted through.

          I've noticed that in the last three weeks or so new hubs I've submitted have not gone immediately - within a few hours - to a niche site, which was the case before beginning of October? And the editing of hubs has also slowed down, definitely. So the HP team must have had some sort of priority shift I'm guessing. It's frustrating because I want to keep the momentum going - such high viewing figures on the niche sites - and at present I feel like the editing system has stalled.

      Things are indeed a bit slow right now-- we are in the process of interviewing and hiring several new editors, which should speed things up, but some sites will still have backlogs potentially for several weeks. Thanks for your patience.

        Thanks for the feedback Christy. I was just wondering what the situation was and whether I had been forgotten. Patience is something I have oodles of, probably too much in fact!

          I have an article eligible for Owlcation at about October 21st. I've been waiting 10 days for it. My RemedyGrove article took 3 days after submission to move there (I originally submitted it for HealDove, but they moved it to RemedyGrove instead). Now, I'm waiting for my Owlcation article.

          We definitely appreciate it, eugbug! Things should go faster in the long run with more employees, but it means things are slower in the short term while we take additional time to interview and train new candidates.

      This is a bit off the topic but i'd like to know why it is that when a hub is refused for movement to a niche site after being submitted a person must wait 60 days before being able to resubmit it again.

      In many cases, an author can do an overhaul that makes a hub totally acceptable, but with the 60 day wait period, cannot resubmit and also cannot have the hub chosen for movement.

      Seems a bit unfair.

        I think this is to prevent people from misusing the freedom and submitting hubs without making the right changes. It takes time to review the hubs, even if it is just 2 minutes to go through it and reject it. When a hub is rejected the editors make a note about the reason for the rejection.

        Due to the long queues right now, it is fair in a sense that you have to wait.

          Why would anybody in his right mind resubmit a hub without making "the right changes?".  That makes no sense!  I can see saying "wait another 14 days" but another two months?  That kind of leaves a sour taste in the mouth, especially when someone has taken time to completely revamp a hub.

            I know. That is totally unfair.

            Because they think they did a good job when they did not? Yeah, 14 days was pretty good.

              Yeah, the 14-day wait is the standard in hubpages.

              The fact that the submission was turned down makes it pretty clear that they did not do a good job and that the hub needs improvement.  Doesn't matter what the writer thinks...it's what the editor thinks that matters here.  If I were editing and someone resubmitted the exact same article with no real upgrades, I'd be pretty upset.  Furthermore, what's to keep a writer from doing this after 60 days?  Makes no sense!

                Wastes less time of the editors if it is once in 60 days as opposed to every day.

                  I'm not talking about submitting every day...I'm talking about resubmitting again after 14 days rather than after 60 days.

                    Like I said earlier, 14 days was pretty good.

      I was just wondering that myself, as two weeks or more pass before I see any movement. This doesn't even allow us to move the two hubs we are allowed to move each month.

      However, I just went back to the two hubs I thought were lost in the ether, and they ARE on niches. I just didn't get a notification! I have been proof reading extra hard, as if a hub must be resubmitted, that adds a lot more time too. Check to be sure they aren't moved. You may be surprised like I was. I hope so, anyway! Best Wishes.

        Hi Jean. That hub still hasn't been moved. I re-submitted it on 1st October.

    Yeah, it's definitely slow nowadays. I submitted one to Owlcation more than 2 weeks ago, and I'm yet to hear from them!

    Over the last year and half, I have run into many frustrations with the vetting system.

    The last email on a 14 day submission said the Hub is placed in queue. No idea how long patience has to be practiced with a open end statement like that.

    Some niche editors work with full back and forth communications.

    A forum post on which niches are experiencing vetting and editor delays would be helpful.
