    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article? I have read the criteria and can't see what might be wrong. What can I do to improve? Thanks!
    Here is my article: Caveman Lamp for a Modern Table (must be signed in to view)

    I would suggest using a plain title that describes what the hub is about

    Hi. Your project looks interesting. I think the reason why the article isn't featured is almost certainly the Amazon capsules. The five capsules at the end of the article look bad not only because of their number and the fact that they're so close together but also because you don't say anything about why you like those particular products and why they are essential for the project. I think that even the single capsule for the acrylic spray won't be accepted unless you explain why that brand of spray is necessary and why another one that people can buy in their local stores isn't acceptable.

      Thank you so very much for your comments. This was my first article (originally done for Squidoo) and I was not familiar with the protocols regarding recommended products. I thought I was supposed to find products showing everything I had used. Although I chose them carefully, I didn't know I was supposed to add why I had chosen them.

    I agree with AliciaC. You should choose one product and really explain in detail why that is the best kind to get. If it were me, I think I'd do the drill. It is absolutely necessary to have a drill to do that project, so tell them what kind you use and what you like about it, any special features. It's important to let them know that you have personal experience with the product.

      Sherry, Thank you so much for your comments too. All of the above reply also applies to your comments. I was trying to think about someone in a rural area who wanted to make this project but didn't have access to many of the things required. I'll go back to the article and make some changes.

    Your article is definitely better than the other day but there is still a way to go.
    The list at the bottom (supplies) should be in a bullet form.
    All of those Amazon recommendations should not be bunched up at the bottom. In fact, many people now use adblockers and will not even see those Amazon capsules, just white space. This reads more like an ad for materials than a how-to article, so to change that you can add the Amazon recommendations through the article, as links, instead of all of those capsules. To do that, when you are talking about a special kind of drill bit, for example, link that to the product from Amazon that you are recommending. (You still need to make it clear that this is the specific bit that you used for the project and why you are recommending it.)
    Cool project!
