    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my article? What can I do to improve? Thanks!
    Here is my article: Help Needed to Solve an Undiagnosed and Serious Mystery Illness

    Deb - my heart goes out to you.  However, this really isn't a forum for this kind of request.  HP is for informational articles not for parents asking people to contact them with help for their child's illness. The liability issues would be huge were this sort of thing to be allowed regularly and HP really isn't going to want to take on that kind of risk. Have you tried specialty forums that might have people with similar symptoms or illnesses? Good luck to you and your family.

      Hubpages has contacted me now three times saying that the article has the opportunity to be featured, but they are not giving me any leads on what to correct. At first it was lacking  media, so I added another picture. The other one implied that maybe I didn’t have enough helpful information, so I added some in text research links to clarify some of the  terminology. I asked them to point out in clearer detail what they would like to see, but no one has responded yet, which is why I came here. So yes, they are trying to feature it, but I can’t figure out what it is they want me to do to change it up. That said, I will try to rewrite it not only asking for ideas, but in a way that is also informative so that other readers could benefit since there are a lot of people out there with undiagnosed conditions or mystery illnesses. I would assume if they felt it was a liability, that they would have pulled it and not suggested featuring it, right?

    Have you tried Facebook to share your story? You're much more likely to be able to find a larger audience there since content can be shared more easily than here on Hubpages. Aside from that, my heart goes out to you and your son. I hope this eventually finds a professional who's able to provide some help.

      Yes, people are asking if they may share it on Facebook and of course I’m fine with that. Some of the writing groups I belong too have done that. I think it’s important that mystery diagnosis or undiagnosed diseases get some attention, because many people are living them for sure.  I’m going to restructure my article 2 last about asking for Leeds and more about informing the public that these exist.

    HP doesn't generally give additional information about what to change.  They just send the standard form email.  This is something many of us have had an issue with but it doesn't appear like it's going to change any time soon.  They largely leave this level of editing up to us, establishing the form letter with the link and recommendation that you put it on the forum and ask for suggestions from the community.  Overall, we are pretty successful in helping people get their articles featured. I still think this type of request is a potential liability even if HP hasn't specifically said that.  I'm not sure if every article that fails QAP receives the same form letter as a matter of course or only those they feel can be edited and improved enough to be featured. I wish I had more information for you but there are probably other hubbers that know more about this.  Good luck.

      It's been featured! I kept making small edits and it finally worked!  Thank you all for your advice!
