Few times my stuff has been declined and recently one has been ad disabled. No cursing, sexual images or talk, no violent or gory things either yet it's still been declined. I think they should start saying when hubs are unpublished or disabled why and how we can fix it.
You should have received and email when it failed quality assessment which gives some general reasons and a way to get help from the forums.
I mean those I understand but sometimes when my thing is unpublished there is no reason. No sexual imagery or speech, no gory visuals or words, nothing offensive. A few people I've seen has said the same thing where they make alot of changes to their hubs but it doesn't help.
I agree with you especially now that they have hired the extra editors. I have only had a few hubs declined but two of them I just ended up deleting after editing 5 times each and the other two I also edited numerous times only to discover had I deleted the amazon capsule they would have been accepted (which is a separate issue). I sent several emails to the team asking for feedback after the third exit on each which received no reply. I have no problem editing my work - as a writer this is just part of the process - and I appreciate the helpful edits performed by the editors which help strengthen my articles. But wasting a great deal of time playing hit or miss with editing when no feedback is given does not encourage writers, especially new writers just joining HP, to stay with it.
It would be helpful since it gives you reasons why it could be declined but doesn't say specifically why. I wrote an article about ten worst places to work and they said I copied it from someplace else, I took some information and the places but everything else was all my writing. They should help say more when declining a hub for a reason.
You shouldn't take ANY information and publish it as your own. You must make it clear that it's a quote. Rewriting someone else's article also counts as plagiarism. If you are inspired to write about the same topic, then close that webpage and write it from your perspective, not someone else's.
The editors review hundreds and hundreds of hubs everyday. There's no way they have the time to offer individual critiques or reasons why a hub is unacceptable. I look at a lot of hubs here, and it can take 20-30 minutes to give a detailed response.
If you are aware of the requirements before you start writing, it will give you a head start. Having several hubs rejected means you are doing something wrong. Go back to the Learning Center and start again.

That is what I did, I made it clear that some information was took off other sites. You can't just make an article about something without knowing any information, I looked it up on multiple sites and only took the reasons for why they are terrible, about 97% of the work is my own, I made it clear that it isn't all my work.
After editing an article for a couple of weeks, I messaged the editor and asked them. They got back to me and apologized for that saying that the system dubbed it a duplicate and they did publish it. Maybe you should message the editor and see what they say.
I once wrote a piece, "10 reasons why you may quit or lose youy job soon" and it was rejected 3 or 4 times. That actually pissed me off given that the article was completely original (not sourced), but they rejected it either way.
But it later got featured when I decided to rewrite the whole article, from title to conclusion.
Sometimes you just have to rephrase the whole thing.

When you publish a hub, it is normally listed under hub activity and a notification is sent via email to all interested parties. Now, when you unpublish that hub, finish re-editing and then republish it (keeping...
