I want to ask for advice regarding my article that I have submitted to owlcation. They didn't reject it but said to wait for editing. What kind of editing they want? What is wrong with my article? Please, seniors, help me in this regard. So I can overcome these mistakes in other articles.
Here is the link to my article:
Blessings to all.
Curios doesn't that mean they are going to edit it? I dun'no . . .
If you've submitted it, you need to wait until it is accepted or rejected. If small edits are necessary, the editors will make them. If it needs more work done by you, they will tell you.
Taking a quick look - I would delete those first two sentences for a start. There can hardly be anyone (who uses the internet) who doesn't know that an elephant is an animal.
If possible, reduce the number of times you use the word 'elephant' - currently it appears 72 times.
Which species is taller African elephant or forest elephant? What are their sizes? Note: pounds (lbs.) is not size it's a unit for weight. Put Latin name for other species of elephants.
Delete the entire paragraph about the white elephant.
The white elephant is not a species of elephant, they are albino. Albinism is not a characteristic of elephants and it occurs in many animals. For about Burma, it should be in the different subtitle as an "elephant in human culture.
"Elephants are big, four-legged mammal" is better than the first two sentences. For physical features, for me, I'll make it into one paragraph only, instead of separating it into different subtitles.
Additional info for behavior like feeding, defense, courtship, gestation, migration (white elephant leadership should be in behavior)
Add more facts that everyone doesn't know to make it interesting. Thank you.
Elephants are the world's largest *land* mammals. Blue whales are the world's largest mammals. That's the sort of fundamental error that destroys your credibility. A reader might think if you can't get that right why should I read on.
Thanks, Rupert, for your precious time. I will improve myself.
Thanks for pointing out. I don't know how I made this big blunder because it's a very commen thing that elephants are largest terrestrial animals.
Moondot, I am not sure but can you please tell me whether the team asked you to edit or they just simply asked to wait until they edit it?
Because I have heard if the article, which you want to move to the network site, has just some minor issues or mistakes, the team can snip it and there is nothing to do at your end
I think BevG can tell you better in detail
Yeah, Misbah, they said to wait until they edit it. But I think, Eric is right, it will take a long time. That's why I have asked for help in editing.
@Moondot, I really don't have any idea
I have a lot of my articles on Letterpile, but HP auto-moved them
I submitted one of my articles to a network site yesterday, let's see what happens
Yes, I have seen your articles. You have done a great job. I love the way you articulate your feelings. I was busy with CSS exams so couldn't give much time to HP. I gave it (CSS) a shot. Let's see what happened.
May Allah gives you success on every path of life, Ameen!
My kind prayers and well wishes are with you
Other authors say, from the old post on the forum. When an article has been queued to edit, it takes not just months but years.
Hi, Moondot. One thing that I noticed was that you haven’t written the scientific names of the elephants correctly. This doesn’t look good when you say that you studied botany and zoology as major subjects. The genus and species should be written in italics. Only the genus is capitalized.
In addition, the section about the species of elephants doesn’t make sense. You say that only two species of elephants exist, but you’ve given the names of three species.
Good luck with editing your article and getting it moved to a network site.
Hello there. You don't need to submit your article to the website before the editors go through it and accept it. If it has some minor corrections, then you have to leave it all to them. Good luck.

Hello Beautiful souls, This month, I submitted two of my articles to network sites and have yet to hear back from the editors. They did not accept or reject it, and I did not receive any emails stating that the articles had been placed in the editing queue. The strange thing is that I emailed them...

I submitted an article nearly 5 weeks ago after an editor requested that it be edited. Should it take this long to be submitted to a Niche site, or if it is no longer considered, is a notification issued?

If I have an article on HubPages.com is there a way to submit it to the HubPages editors, so they can determine if it qualifies for Discover.Hubpage.com?

It would be very helpful if the team would place some sort of small mark next to articles or above them to show writers that they are ready, time wise, to be submitted to a niche site. Otherwise, we have to keep a chart of some sort, which is very time consuming to do, especially if we have...

Is there a common standard or set guidelines that all the editors use to select articles? Or do all the different network sites/editors have their own guidelines for their own sites similar to when we submit our own articles? Is there a way to find all the different guidelines, without trying to...

Hello Beautiful Souls,About a few weeks ago, I submitted one of my articles to a niche site. I was asked to add on a few more words to the article and then resubmit the article. As the editors thought that the length of the article was thin. After doing it I tried to resubmit it as per the...
