    Revise my HUB for what...?
    What's a "watermark"?
    Why are you just now saying something?

    I have to revise my HUB because I have unrelated links and/or products...?
    What...? Excuse me?
    Since I wrote the HUB, I think I'm entitled to say "what is related".
    The only product I included in my HUB (a recipe for cream of mushroom soup) are STOCK POTS...yes, STOCK POTS.
    I chose to place these STOCK POTS in my HUB because I mentioned to NEVER use aluminium STOCK POTS.
    What's wrong with that?
    The other thing that HubPages complained about was my "poor quality" photos...
    Excuse me once again, but what...?
    I don't understand.
    What do you mean by "watermarks"?

    I don't know what to tell you about the unrelated but watermarks on pictures are words or a small picture placed there by the photographer. If you can adjust the size of it to not show that, or pick a different picture, If the picture shows pixels, that is also a problem. Pixels are when you can see the picture in tiny squares. Those should not show. Make the picture display smaller and that should take care of that.
    The unrelated could be if you showed a link to stock pots but it isn't an Affiliated ad company. Was it Amazon?

    Contact the admin directly and ask them these questions.  They should be able to give you specifics as to why.  It does sound strange with what you mentioned that now you have to revise it.  Did someone complain or flag it?  All good questions for the admin I suppose.

    Take a careful look at the message at the top of the Hub.  You should be able to open it up and click to get further information - it will tell you exactly which links are the problem.

    Do you have any links to your other Hubs on other subjects?   They count as unrelated links.  Once upon a time, we were allowed to have an RSS feed to our "latest" or "best" Hubs - that now counts as unrelated links and must be removed.

    Photos - a "watermark" means any text on the photos, e.g. a copyright symbol or caption on the photo itself.  But HubPages usually says "poor quality OR watermarked" - and in your case, I suspect the problem is poor quality.  I took a look at your Stuffed Cabbage Hub and the first photo is appalling quality, you can hardly make it out - that kind of photo is not acceptable.

    As for "why are you just now saying something" - HubPages are improving their filters all the time, which means they are now picking up things that weren't noticed before.  Lots of people are finding that Hubs published for a year or more, are now being moderated.
