    My acceptance rate used to be at around 95% up until recently. They won't even admit manual submissions these days. All I get are general rejection emails. Similarly, new submissions are not considered for the site anymore.

    Is anyone else on the same boat?

      I've had some similar experiences in recent times, though not specifically with Reelrundown. One can only speculate, but I do wonder if they only want a certain quota of certain sorts of article for the magazine format. So when you submit something that's in a similar vein to ones that were accepted previously, it's rejected. I really don't know. It could be that certain rules have been introduced or tightened. One can only speculate. It's very off-putting if you've spent time and effort researching and writing something though. In the past, I would attempt to branch out into other areas outside of my natural comfort zone and sometimes get knocked back. Now, it seems that just being conservative and delivering more of the same also runs the risk of rejection.

      I don't mind the "you need to do this, this, and this" response. But the general rejection email can feel like a brush off. It's frustrating if you've spent several days putting an article together and you know it's not essentially all that different to stuff already featured.

        I concur. I usually spend a lot of time with my pieces these days, before publishing them. Goes without saying that I will not be publishing anything realted to movies or TV shows until I know what's really going on. If my articles are to stay on Hubpages, I don't see a point in putting any effort.

          The way I understand it, the main way to get stuff published is to analyse what's already featured, both one's own work and other people's. Then copy the style, tone, layout etc. (obviously not the content). If I do that, and still get rejected, it feels like I've hit a brick wall. I've been here years and regularly have articles featured on the front pages of niche sites. Is it unreasonable to want a few explanations or pointers from editors, even if just a few sentences, rather than the "fits all sizes" generated response. Maybe I should be more proactive and email the editors or something. I'm certainly not going to leave HP, I generally love it here, but there are times when I just feel like taking a break and pursuing other matters... smile
