    By the way, I got an email saying that the article was overly promotional, so I fixed the problem. Can you tell me what's wrong with this article?

      It looks like the issue is that your article contains an affiliate link, which is not permitted on HubPages.

        Why? I removed all Affiliate links.

            This link works. Christy's hammering the main thing, but as a small recommendation, I'd spread your videos or add some photos to the text-heavy middle of the Hub.

            If I'm understanding correctly, we can link to affiliates in photos/videos to source them, but shouldn't in text. Interesting.

          There is an affiliate link to theuniversim.com within the page.

            Thanks. I'll go check that out once I get to the computer. I'll make sure that I remove the link or at least mark the link as an affiliate link.

              It isn't an affiliate link. Write to team@hubpages and ask if someone can take a look. The link is necessary to the reader.

              I'll go fix that as soon as I go to the computer.

                I don't see an affiliate link, just a plain old link to the site to get the game. It's hasn't got an affiliate code embedded in it.

                Isn't that a legitimate and necessary link, Christy?

              I can see no affiliate link, only a link to the website, what's the problem with that?

                I know. If it was an affiliate link, it'll tell me.

          Just checking - but at one time, affiliate links were permitted on HubPages, IF they were from reputable companies, such as ShareASale.  Are you saying ALL affiliate links are banned now?  When did that rule change?

          How about now?

        Of course it works for you, but you must know by now that you need to post via the link in the email for us to be able to access it.
