    Hi Hubbers,

    I posted this article in 2010 and just added an Amazone capsule. I received message that it can be featured on removing spammy contents. What I added removed and resubmitted.Still I am getting the same message.

    "It's possible that your article is not Featured because it contains spammy elements. Perhaps it was written for a link, or has excessive product capsules or product capsules that are not directly related to the content. Even articles that appear to be high quality can be spammy. We recommend that you remove any spammy elements from your article."

    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: FIFA World Cup 2010 - a Funny Prediction

      I did not find it spammy but the writing was substandard and included many spelling and grammatical errors. What probably happened is that when you made the changes it was reevaluated and failed to pass QAP.

      There are too many errors to list but I will show you a few so I can point you in the right direction:

      1. Spelling

      worldd instead of world. And many more. Note also the difference in meaning between its and it's which you use incorrectly in spots.

      2. Grammar

      Here is your opening paragraph:

      It contains many grammatical errors and nonstandard English.

      Let's look at the first few sentences.

      Football is the most popular game in the world. [Good]

      In team games, eventhough a lot of games are existing in the world. [Not good. This is sentence fragment. Perhaps combine it with the first sentence. Eventhough should be even though.]

      But there is not a single game that is played in all countries in the world other than football. [Grammatically incorrect. I think you may have meant to say that the football is the most played game in every country. But your sentence does not actually say that. It says there not a single game played in all countries.

      And then you have this towards the end:

      "Now here is an interesting mathematics regarding the prediction of the FIFA World Cup champions 2010. It is a fun. But just go through it to predict the winner of FIFA World Cup soccer 2010."

      An interesting mathematics is not a word. You meant to say an interesting mathematical formula or model for predicting outcomes.

      "It is a fun" does not mean anything. I think you meant to say it is just for fun, or something.

      Anyway, this is why you can't get it republished. It needs to be improved.

    Maybe it's being rejected merely because it's out of date. A "prediction" for a World Cup that has already happened isn't likely to get much attention. It's old news.

    Hi Abida,
    Remove the link “Brazil” from your article. It's a HubPages link which gives an error 404. Remove all the links if there are more.
