    I am just letting you know that I updated an older article and it took over five resubmissions to get it featured again. It was very frustrating because I kept getting the form letter, which was no help. I was getting so frustrated trying to figure out what was wrong and started making editing errors. I did persist and now it is featured, yikes!  Since HP has more editors, you'd think they'd get rid of the form letter.  I have it memorized now. : )  Here is the article that is finally featured. If you see a typo, let me know. I will go into hysterical laughter. … s-for-Kids

    You seem to have a spam comment at the end of the article. It doesn't add any value to the topic. I would delete it.

    I was thinking the same thing-- patience and perseverance is admirable.

    Articles that are unfeatured on HubPages are handled by our moderation team, not our editing team. Our editing team selects articles to move to Network Sites, requests author edits to move articles, and edits articles.  We don't handle featuring and defeaturing articles. I'm glad that you were able to fix the problems and get it featured.  smile

      Robin, Thank you for the clarification. Still, it would be nice if HP Moderation Team could be more direct in their emails. Writers would be able to fix their articles faster. Form letters are more of a generality than a specific request.
