    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:

      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.

      Good luck.

    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 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
    Blessings

      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.

    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.

      Thank you for your time, Millicent. Yes, I am also thinking about to leave the article to them for editing. As I have mentioned before that they didn't reject my article.
