    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!

    The feedback I got was very generic - but actually I think I followed all the guidelines. 

    Here is my article: Are Your Ready for a Meatless Burger? (must be signed in to view)

      The person who checked your article may have thought that your photos of a particular brand of veggie burger and your link to the maker's website were promotional. You could try using a generic photo of a veggie burger (with a suitable license) to see if that helps.

      Hi -- I bet you anything it's the link in the photo. It's tripping the "overly promotional" switch. You're still in "boot camp" and will be until you have 10 featured articles, and that measn you're really under scrutiny for spammy elements, even if they're really not.

      If I were you, I would also break up those long text elements into several short ones and intersperse photos from pixabay.com or some other free photo source.

      It's a good topic and you might generate decent traffic down the line, especially if you write a bunch more about vegan foods and start to establish authority.

      Good luck!

    You are off to a great start. The scientific references need to be cited at the bottom of the article using the link capsule. You can find sources through Google Scholar.  I agree with Alicia about the image/pictures. You might try taking your own pictures of a vegan burger or a package of beyond burgers or impossible burgers.

    Thanks for the ideas, everyone.  I'll try your suggestions.

    Big title problem! Are YOUR Ready... the problem is, that it's in the URL as well.

    Bev, How do you fix that?

      You can't. You can fix the title, but you can't change the url unless you save the text and then start all over again. In this case, I'd just change the title because it's a small error in the url.

    I take issue with the statement "Anyone who has tried one will tell you that they are no substitute for the real thing!" I have tried them and I find them a perfectly acceptable substitute for the "real thing." And the exclamation mark should go. This punctuation should only be used in connection with expression such as Wow! or Holy Cow!

    The random boldface is also an issue. Boldface on the Internet is interpreted as being shouty.

    The article is fine and the pre-beyond/impossible burgers were indeed nothing like the real thing.  But I would make the title match the content better.  It's not about how to decide if you are ready, it's about how the new ones have changed the situation.
