      It used to be, not so long ago, that an article would be featured within 48 hours. I haven't written one for awhile but have enough featured ones that I know what they look for. So I wrote one 6 weeks or maybe longer  that's 5500 words and I'm still waiting for it to be featured. I've written to them several times about it through their contact page and a week ago had a reply from Matt who I think seems to be the only one connected to Hubpages now, he replied that he'd sent it on to the Featured Article team - nothing to date.

      Hi there,

      You have to do proper fact checking. For example, in your 'Misuse of Science' article, you mention sciencism. It's 'scientism'.

      You need to format your article as per the advice and examples in the Learning Center.

      Learn the difference between nouns and proper nouns, as your capitalisation is random. Like this, "Due to these two problems, all Philosopher of Science unanimously agreed that Science Doesn't Lead to Certainty or Absolute."

      Work on your phrasing, for instance, this sentence doesn't make sense, "So he reached the conclusion that all the swan white colors of the world have declared a general conclusion through its limited monitoring."

      When writing about a topic, such as science, you have to make sure it is clear and unambiguous. Decide on the central core of the article. Create a structure, using relevant subheadings, and make sure every sentence is related to the message/core you want to convey. Don't ramble.

      You have a lot of work to do, but I'm sure you can do it.

      Good luck.

      PS, your title, "Some records in football that Messi-Ronaldo can never break!" Should be 'Messi or Ronaldo'. Hyphenating turns them into one name.

        Hi mam, but if you search in Google, you can see it as “sciencism”, and it is also correct. Thank you.

          I'm not the one who approves your articles, but I think the most popular and generally used term is 'scientism'.

              Rafis, the word mam should be properly hyphenated as [ma'm]. That's good English expression. This also applies to the title of your discussion thread[" Frustrated 'cause my...". Since the word "because" is not write in full. That's why ma'm is hyphenate for madam.

                That's not a hyphen, it's an apostrophe/inverted comma. It represents the missing letter, d.

                Ma'am (with two 'a's) is the correct contraction of Madam smile

                However, Nafe, you can call me 'Bev'.

                  Bev, thanks for the correction. I was carry away with his word. But I thought the hyphen and apostrophe are contracdiction in American and British English? I'm not talking about single or double commas. Nor invert commas as I use them.

                    This is a hyphenated word: self-esteem.

                    This is a contracted word: didn't.

                    They are the same in any version of English smile

      Nafis, despite my pointer above, I've taken some time to read a quarter of your article: 'Misuse of Science:Science is a Global Problem'.                                      Seriously, many standard English Language problems-grammar, punctuation, sentence structures I notice along. Conventional online writing model especially per HubPages inclusive.                                       The first sub-heading or sub-title is dual. Divide it into 'What is Science'. And 'How does Science Works'.                                   I'll also advice that you go online for grammarly. It'll check your articles right. Get it here: www.grammarly.com/                               You'll notice that I've made slight changes in both the title and sub-title. If you think otherwise undo it. Be specific in you sentences. Avoid duality. Write so that a layperson can understand.

      I took a look at your Ballon D'Or article.  It is obvious that you are using translation software.  Translation software makes literal translations of words with no regard for grammar or context.  Your articles will never be featured if you continue to use translation software.

      Work on improving your English language skills and then come back and try again.  HubPages is an American site.  It's audience is mainly native English language speakers so all articles must be written in perfect or near perfect English.  You will never achieve that with translation software.

      Writing is a craft, and it takes work. Also, ESL is your fundamental barrier. Several experienced HP writers have offered sound advice. I recommend following their advice. Good Luck!

      Nafis, you're welcome. Have a nice week. And welcome to hubpages.

    My tip is a tough one to achieve but you need to improve your English language skills. I looked at your Ballon d'Or article and found it to be loaded with very awkward phrasing and grammar errors.

    HubPages requires articles to be written in perfect English. You have a lot of work to do.

    Hubpages is not a blogging site. Translation software with akward grammar can not help matter.                                                    If you write the article originally in your mother tongue or native language, and use a software to translate it into English, use grammarly to check a control in grammar, punctuation and sentence structure. In that way, its better off.

    The surprising thing, to me anyway, is that his articles are deemed good enough to be moved to Discover.
