    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 instructions in the email.

    Upon resubmitting the article it said that it's not possible to resubmit this article before 60 days. It has happened to me before as well.

    I am very sure that many hubbers here have noticed it as well but I don't remember reading about it on any forum, so I straight away emailed the team.

    I told them what else I need to do because I have done what I was asked to do but the submission is possible after 60 days and It's not mentioned in the email.

    I got a reply on the same day from "Haley Davis" and then again today just a couple of minutes ago.

    The team said that they appreciate me for pointing out this issue. I want to share it with the community here because I believe many others also wanted to know about this issue

    Blessings to all of you

      Thanks for the info, Misbah.

      I thought the window for submitting to niche sites was two weeks. However, if asked to edit a current submission, I think the author should be able to resubmit immediately upon completion. Guess not, tho, huh?

        You’re correct, the threshold window for submitting hubs to niche sites is two weeks. However, the threshold window for “resubmitting the same hub” is 60 days. That’s the case when a hub was rejected and the editor requested more work be done. Sixty days was meant to give the author enough time to make the changes to make it qualify.

        I guess they are thinking of changing that 60 day requirement based on Haley’s response.

          Mr. Glenn, I think the 60-day window issue isn't very old because once about 5 or 6 months ago,  I was asked to edit and resubmit the article and at that time they didn't ask me to wait for 60 days. I did it at that time without any delay.

          But later I faced this problem about 3 months ago. It was annoying but I didn't take any notice on it.

          Recently about a few weeks ago, it happened again, so I thought to reach the team to bring the issue to their attention.

          I am glad for the positive response from Haley.

          Blessings to you!!

            Misbah, the  60-day window was in effect over a year ago. I know that because I had to wait 60 days to resubmit when the editor asked me to make changes at that time. So, since you had a different experience, it's likely that each niche site is handled differently. Each niche has a dedicated editor assigned.

              Oh, I see. Yes, the Niche sites were different each time. The first one that didn't ask for any delay was for Owlcation, second time which asked to wait for 60 days was for Youmemindandbody and third time it was for Spinditty.

              Thanks for sharing this information with me. I really appreciate that. smile

              Blessings!

                You're welcome. I appreciate that additional information you mentioned. Interestingly, the one that required 60 days for me was Owlcation. I think there is no specific rule, because I've noticed variations over time.

                By the way, I noticed you had started here seven months ago. So, welcome to HubPages/Maven. You've accomplished a lot already and I'm sure you will be very successful. smile

        Shauna, about 5 or 6 months ago, I was a newcomer at that time.  I submitted one of my articles to a Niche site. It was my first attempt. I remember I was asked to edit and resubmit it and I did it without any delay as far as I remember.

      HubPagesposted 13 months agoin reply to this

      Hi Misbah! Thank you so much for raising this issue again. There are three types of submissions, and each has a different window (or did, until very recently!). Editors cannot choose how long the (re)submission window is or toggle between options—it is all automated. Here are the details:

      • 2 weeks for any new submission to a niche site
      • 2 weeks for resubmission to a niche site (previously this window was 60 days; the change to 14 days was implemented on August 23rd)
      • Immediate for articles resubmitted after an Author Edit Request

      Please let us know if you have any more questions!

      Kindly,
      Haley

    Copy the entire article and save it on Word. Delete from Hubpages. Change the title and re-submit as a new Hub.

      Thanks a lot, Bro, I truly appreciate your suggestion. The article I am talking about is the "HU" article. I don't want to delete and redo it. I think I can wait and then resubmit but I am relieved that they are aware of the problem now. smile
      Blessings always!!

    Thank you for sharing this, Misbah. I feel is staff have suggested changes to an article and told you to make them and resubmit then you should be able to do it immediately. Unless you have submitted another article to a niche site in the meantime I guess.
    A lot of the rules and wording in the Learning Centre is outdated and needs changing to. That will all take time.

      Misbah786posted 13 months agoin reply to this

      John, I didn't know about the things in the Learning Center that are outdated and need to be changed, but I believe we (the authors here) can check and request the team to look into the issue as I believe it would be a great help for the new comers as we always ask them to go to the Learning Center.

      Haley is extremely nice and helpful. She responded quickly and informed me further without even asking. I found her to be very kind and generous.

      Blessings always!!

        You can see the update date on the articles for how current they are. A quick gland at the landing page for the Learning Center at link below I see they are 2020 & 2021.

    It happened again. I wasn't expecting that to happen again, to be honest. They haven't changed the wording in the email, and it still has the same instructions, and I am unable to submit it again before 60-days. This time the niche was Exemplore

        Misbar, per our discussion last week (above in this thread) we came to the conclusion that the editors seem to be choosing which to apply (2 weeks or 60 days) as personal choice.

        I’m not sure, but they might have a button to press that puts you in one of those two categories. I had an experience a while back where the editor changed it. I first got the same 60 day warning as you show in your post, and then that suddenly disappeared after I updated the article again. So it seems that they have control over the selection.

        I would say you should email the team and ask about it. If you show that you made the effort to update the article as they requested, then I think they would consider that.

            You’ve done well with title capitalization. That’s great! If you don’t mind a little help with some corrections. I would suggest you don’t use so many hyphens throughout your article. That leaves you with many run-on sentences. Try changing the sentence parts to individual sentences.

            Also, the last capsule's title is not a question, you need to remove the question mark.

            Finally, your list of references should be in APA Style. See the following for help on that:

              Misbah786posted 13 months agoin reply to this

              Thank you so much, Sir. I highly appreciate your help and support. Yes, I can remove hyphens and can break those sentences. This is not something that the editors have asked me to do but yes it would be easier for the readers to read it so yes, I can give it a try. The problem is that I've never been asked before to change the format of the title. This is the first time something like this has happened. I had no idea that the references needed to be in APA format. Thanks for sharing this information with me. I am grateful.
              Many Blessings to you!!

                I have to admit that I didn’t read through your article in its entirety. It’s possible that you have some subtitles that fall under a hierarchy of a higher subtitle.

                That might be what the editor was noticing. In that case you would want to make the lower subtitles H3 instead of placing them in the capsule's title field (which defaults to H2). On a quick scan, it does look like you were beginning to write your sections with that type of logical flow.

                  Yes Sir, That's something we were discussing on the other forum. I think using that method is quite easy and will improve the flow of the article. 
                  Thanks for letting me know. I really appreciate your generosity. smile

    It also happend to me, I submitted an article and team said add some more info and resubmit. I editted the article tried to resubmit, but i could not, then I mailed them twice, but they didnt reply. I think 60 days is a too much long time.

    1. Misbah786 profile image87
      Misbah786posted 13 months agoin reply to this

      Amara, I also believe 60 days is an excessively long period of time. I didn't email them this time, but I did once before, and they responded to me, as shown in the first and second screenshots. The email message, in my opinion, requires a modification. Thanks for sharing your experience. smile
      Blessings to you, dear sister
