Good evening all and thank you in advance for reading. I submitted one of my articles for SkyAboveUs before Christmas (a month and a half ago), however, it is still “pending for review”. They usually accept or reject quite quickly, so the last couple of weeks, I did try to edit the article slightly to see if this would make the process go faster.
Can anyone advice what the best course of action from here would be, please? As I would like the opportunity for it to be featured on their website if it was good enough, and if not, to improve and submit again.
Thanks very much in advance!
Try contacting the HP editors and ask them what the holdup is: http://hubpages.com/contact_us/
This may not be the correct address for your needs, but it's a start. I'm sure someone else can lead you in the right direction. I usually reply to emails I get from HP regarding edits they've made to my work or congratulating me for making it to a niche site. In over 11 years I've never had to contact them with a specific query.
Hey! Sorry to hear about this. Could you tell me the title of your article? I will check with our editing team.
Thank you so much for your quick response Samantha!
The article is - "Haunted Hike & Edwardian Gardens on Vale Trail 7 - Walking in the Vale of Glamorgan".
I really appreciate your help.
I've notified the site's editor. Will give you an update shortly.
SkyAboveUs' editor will be online this evening (PST) and will address it then. I apologize for the delay—thank you for your patience!
Hi Samantha, I just saw your reply to Russell after I posted above. Could you do me a favor and check that my email of January 21st is still in the inbox waiting for a reply from the Owlcation editor? Thanks.
Hi Glenn, I can do that! Did you send it directly to the editor or to the team inbox?
The editor of Owlcation didn’t use a direct email with their rejection notice. So I replied to email@example.com with my questions on January 21st. I still have it in my sent folder and can forward it to you if you don’t find it. Thanks for checking.
Ok. I have sent a request for an update. I Will let you know.
Glenn, if you are talking about the email sent on Jan 21st, would you please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org? Then we can get it to the right editor.
We suggest not responding to automated emails from editors@hubpages and instead direct inquiries to team@hubpages. It's much quicker and easier for us to find.
Thank you! Sorry it's taken so long for someone to get back to you.
Thanks Samantha. I just forwarded that email to the team mailbox. I’ll use that from now on when I reply to an unknown editor. Good to know. Enjoy the rest of your evening.
Samantha, is there any news on this? I haven’t heard anything and now I’m waiting for a response on two hubs.
Did you email regarding both? To team@hubpages?
Only the one you had asked me to forward to the team mailbox. The other is one I submitted via the submit button with no response yet.
Ok. I don't actually monitor the team inbox, so I thought this was resolved a while ago! Sorry about that. The original email was forwarded to the correct editor. So the other article is waiting in the Owlcation queue? Which site?
That January 21st email was dealing with Owlcation. So I hope you mean that it was forwarded to the Owlcation editor when I resent it to the team per your request.
The other article was not for Owlcaton. I submitted it to ToughNickel about ten days ago after waiting for it to be selected after publishing.
Both of these articles are the last two that I had published.
Ok yah, I was CC'd in the forwarded Jan 21st email this morning. You should hear back from that editor soon. I just reached out to the TouchNickel editor, so a decision should be made on that soon, too.
Hi Samantha I am having the same issues. Although I did contact teamhubpages. I finally got an answer on one article but I still have two articles that I have heard nothing about. One article is on beating writers block which I submitted to letterpile who forwarded the article to HobbyLark. The other one I submitted to Touchnickel about Drowning in Debt and how to get our of debt on Dec 28th and so far I have heard nothing from anyone. I would appreciate if you could see what is going on.
Articles are taking a long time to be approved.
Hi there, it looks like a decision was already made on the writer's block article. Please check your email/spam. As for the second one, I have notified ToughNickel's editor. You should get another notification within the next 24 hours.
Thank you for the quick response Samantha
I still have received no word on the article for Hobbylark. I check my spam mail every day to see if there is anything there. This is regarding the article on writer's block.
I'm not sure why that is. I suggest emailing email@example.com with this information.
The third article I submitted to Letterpile which I did receive an email from saying it had been sent to Hobbylark which was a better fit for it. It was submitted to Letterpile on Jan 20th. This is a portion of the email I sent them.
I did contact team@Hubpages.com on Feb 5 but I haven't heard anything back.
I'm in the same boat with one I submitted to Spinditty. Usually they grab them without me having to submit, but when my latest hub wasn't moved I submitted it. I still haven't heard a thing.
Hi Sherry, if you are talking about "Ten Contemporary Fiddle Players Who Should be Rich and Famous," it looks like you got an author edit request about 5 weeks ago. Maybe check your email or spam folder?
The editors seem to be much more busy lately Sherry. In addition to one for Owlcation, I have another that I published a little over a week ago that I think fits well with ToughNickel. My hubs usually get moved within a week of publishing, so I might do the same as you and submit it.
You might get a faster response from firstname.lastname@example.org
I like your articles, Rhys. I have a particular liking for Dunraven Bay/Southerndown (our nearest beach)
And you've done the Tin Shed Experience - cool! I have an article on the sheds of Laugharne too.
Thank you so much!
That means a lot. I find a real release in firstly, doing my walks, and then secondly, writing about them! Dunraven is beautiful.
Amazing, my aunt and uncle were the ones who ran the Tin Shed Experience! I love your articles and have passed them on.
Thanks so much!
Writing to the “editors” email address doesn’t seem to help either. I’ve been waiting over three weeks for a reply to questions I asked about why one of my new articles was rejected. I suspect they are more busy that usual.

One of my articles on an HP niche site recently underwent the Premium Pro editing process. The editor decided to add about 800 words of her own research to supposedly "improve" my article. Personally, I hated the addition. I do not feel comfortable including other...

I am pretty insulted. Sorry, but it had to be said. I had written an article on here that had done really well. In fact, it was one of my top earners. I went to answer a comment on it, and I stared at it for at least five minutes. I no longer recognised it! The photos had been changed, the writing...

Hello Beautiful Souls I have an idea as many of us are also connected on Medium. Why not start a Hubbers publication on Medium? All of us who will contribute to the publication will also be the editors, so it will be like self-publishing without the need to wait for someone to approve our...

So apparently an editor decided to go berserk on seven of my Hubs today, but I did not receive a single email notifying me of the many changes they made. The only way I noticed was by looking at my account and seeing the little red notices next to each Hub. Why no notification?The editor also...

How do you deal with a change that was made to an article by an HP editor? They unnecessarily changed the title of the article, I'd like to change it back to what it was. Is that what everyone else does when this kind of thing happens? Curious.
