Dear HP Team,
I think that the automated message sent to writers regarding the possibility of getting their article featured on HubPages whenever it does not meet your norms is not a true Friendly Message. It is rather a frustrating message when you repeat it, again and again, to tell the writer to improve his article.
Why can't a human Editor or Staff take some humanitarian approach while sending such messages?
You need to point out what are the defects and the areas that need correction or improvement. Simply tell them whether you want an improvement or correction to the title or sub-title, any grammatical error, any photo, any video, or low quality, or spammy link, what is the defect in it specifically.
This kind of some personal message can be easily inserted in the automated mailing system before sending to the writer so that he can feel happy that you are really friendly and helpful to him and you mean it by heart and practice, not simply by words.
Thanking you in anticipation.
I agree. From what I know, the team has a note on the hubs that have been rejected for moving to a niche site. Why cannot the hubber see this too? Isn't the end goal high-quality articles on the niche sites? Wouldn't it be common sense that this would help all parties involved?
This is the one single thing I can think of about HP that makes no sense at all. In one case I was told that I need to add a sentence on why I am an expert on the topic. That was less than a minutes work for me. The article is on a niche site now, maybe for over a year. But, had I not personally contacted the team I would never know what the reason for the rejection was. No one here would have guessed it, had I asked for help, I'm pretty sure.
Yes, Dear. That's what I want them to do. It will be for their own benefit too. A simple note with one or two words can do the magic and it can help them in building niche content. It is the one thing where they are felt as indifferent or, say, felt as mere machines with no kindness to the writers.
I do not see anything really wrong with your recipe article. Sometimes they just are not into the topic or know too much about it. I get non-featured on some of my best work. I think the best factor is what they feel they can sell ads on. I usually clean up the grammar and spelling and language a bit. That is all you can really do since you really can't read their minds on what they do not like. That is one of my biggest problems with them. They are not specific enough with your particular article, so you never really know what they do not like.
I would entirely agree with that one. I usually go and check to see if it is due to typos or something similar to that. I had one article on Tantra and Ecofeminism, which had nothing to do with sex at all. It had to do with worship of the Divine Mother and honoring Mother Earth. Because of the title they would not sell ads on it, which shows they did not actually read the article at all. They are funny too about Rape Prevention articles and advocacy articles. I write from the view point of advocacy and providing information. I never have anything graphic in there and yet they don't want to sell ads on them. I do think they need to be more thinking about what they are doing when they discourage people from writing these types of articles. They are discouraging people who want to do something about the problem. I think this may be the reason they don't like some articles, but they do not come right out and say it. Some times they don't understand Hinduism and other different types of topics. They don't know something is really innovative, revolutionary and different in this field.
True. They do not understand other people's culture or even recipes. I do not find any reason as to why my article about Rasam Recipe is not accepted by the Team. I checked it for 10 times now and still receiving the same irritating message "A Friendly Headsup". It is simply nonsense.
I also "write for advocacy and providing information" and don't have ANY interest in obtaining money for what I'm saying. What I say is for inspiring reasoning with what one already believe, providing alternative views for consideration and reasoning with information concerning socially mis-defined words for creating division between man and man and also man and the environment.
"Sex schooling" is a desperately needed subject of discussing it in a manner that reveals man do have the same cycles all other animated life have. We don't recognize it because
1) it is never talked about, even between husbands and wife most of the time, &
2) Our accepting sense perceptions over logical reasoning prohibit it socially.
Therefore the only way to inspire "sex education" is to eliminate "public sex conversation is taboo" designed to show our relationships should not be like what's seen in the environment.

I have an article that an editor has made substantial changes too. Including adding a bio that they wrote themselves. I have not seen an edit this bad in quite some time on one of my articles, and I do not want to go through the whole article and rewrite half of it. I've already spent countless...

I have been experiencing a steady drop over the past month. Views have dropped by over 50%. Has there been a Google update and is anyone else experiencing the same?

I signed up for the Earning Program a little over a year ago (before, I used to only earn through Amazon and Adsense) and while I am seeing earnings every day, I've only been able to reach payout twice. I've tried to update my hubs, use interesting titles and good photos, but I still find that my...
