    There are a number of hubbers who as for feedback in a very generic way, like the following:

    "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: .  .  . (must be signed in to view)
    "


    Now, I want to know whether they do so because their hubs have failed the QAP -- or do they do so before their hubs have failed the QAP?

      Mentocio, Some writers like me pass QAP on some articles before asking for help on certain articles in the forum.                                            All successful writers will eventually fail QAP on certain articles. It depends on quality of the article.                                       For example, last year 2020  I wrote 4 articles. 3 pass QAP sequentially. The last piece failed the test.                                  Very good and high qualitative articles expressed in near "perfect English" is the idea.

        How do you know when you pass QAP?

      Most Hubbers ask for feedback because they failed the QAP, yes. But sometimes they ask because their article made it through QAP, but was rejected from a Network Site. There isn't really a point in asking for feedback before a decision is made on it.

        I was thinking about hubpage staff to contribute to this sensitive discussion. Thank you SamarthCubbison.

    If someone’s article fails the QAP, they are sent an email stating this fact. I believe the email contains a section that the writer can click. When they do this, a request for help is generated and posted in the forum. That’s why all the requests have the same wording, apart from the name of the article. If you don’t get this email, you know that your article has passed the QAP.

      I think most hubbers who post for feedback in the forums -- do so before they have failed the QAP.

        What evidence has led you to reach this conclusion? I would be interested to know.

          Here is one verbal evidence:

          "There are plenty of examples asking for feedback for already passed articles, however they are not asking for general feedback. Those particular posts are looking for specific feedback for said article so they can get help with moving it to a niche site."

            Getting an article pass  QAP or featured, and moving same article to a niche site are two different things.                                    An article that is very exceptional good can be move to a niche site immediately by the editing editor.                            Alternately, a writer can re-edit any of his/her featured story(once every two weeks), improved its contents and hit submitted to a niche site button for consideration. It is only an editor that has to decide it fit to be publish on a niche site.

            My comment supports Alicia and myself in saying that people do not post for critique BEFORE the article has failed or passed for the first time. They post AFTER, which is exactly what everyone here is also telling you.

            Scroll through the improving your article forum and you will see the vast majority of the titles and posts are identical. That is because they copy and pasted the paragraph from the email telling them they failed and they should ask the community for help.

            That does not mean the other posts are created before passing or failing QAP, it simply means they did not paste the standard email reply into their post.

        There is no point in asking for feedback unless one has already failed the QAP or needs help moving an already passed featured article to a niche site.

        There are plenty of examples asking for feedback for already passed articles, however they are not asking for general feedback. Those particular posts are looking for specific feedback for said article so they can get help with moving it to a niche site.

        You cannot post in the improving your article forum simply to get general feedback on your writing for future articles. The purpose of that forum is to get specific help on an article to improve it so it either passes QAP or will be moved to a niche site like Letterpile, Owlcation, ect.

      Yes, when you fail the QAP TEST, the email you will receive says, something like, Heads up,......... It means you have to follow the instructions, they are asking you to do. And that the article is not published. Normally you receive the email within 24-48 hours.

    I agree with the other writers that the issue of passing QAP before an article is publish is not attainable at hubpages, or ever discuss in the forum.                                           We publish an article. Hubpage editors goes through it to see fit that it meet basic structural qualities as laid down at the learning center/centre.                                                   That done we receive two response. "Featured," this means the article sail through QAP. Or it's "Heads-up: your article could pass QAP." In this later case, you have to work on the story again and again improving quality content, punctuations, spellings, grammar, and fine tune the written-up in line with HubPages magazine style format.                      Then it goes through  QAP again. The heads up process can be repeat again and again until you pass.

    My articles passed QAP but I would ask for feedback because I want them to be moved to the niche sites. It frustrates me because I couldn't seem to get traffic unless they are on the niche sites. My featured articles that are not on the niche sites have zero reads daily while my articles on the niche sites have a lot.

      Hi there, you got the point right. But you're not able to discern the issue.                                                           How d'you get that artitcle on the niche site, for that fine traffic? Improved quality and content? Nice updating? Why not do the same for the articles on hubpages and discover? Good success.

      I just compared your Kpop article to the one on acapella. The Kpop article seems to read as if you really like the subject, whereas the acapella one does not.
      Why not look at what you did with the Kpop article and use that as a template to change the acapella article? A good edit would really help that article, and after you edit is submit it manually to spinditty.

    Hello, Miebakagh57, I think my topics are the problem themselves and I admit that I still need to improve my writing. I do update them from time to time though. thank you.

    Hello, DrMark1961. I do admit that I enjoy KPop more than a cappella. Thank you for your advice. I will follow them well. smile
