My first article has been unpublished for the second time. The moderator says that it needs improvement and "It did not receive high enough ratings to meet HubPages' quality standards or because it contains spammy elements."
Can anyone see the attached screenshot of my article and tell me the things that I need to do to improve it?
Did you compare your article to the rating criteria as the editors suggested? Have you reviewed all of the articles in the Learning Center (Help button, upper right)?
Without even reading your article, I can spot one big problem - none of the photos in your article are properly credited. Are they licensed for free use or did you steal them from other sites on the internet?
@OldRoses, thank you for the response. I'll add credits to the photos.
Your images must have an appropriate license. So either Creative Commons for commercial use, or be Public Domain (or your own photos). You cannot take photos from other websites without permission. They are copyright.
Credits are not sufficient.
I zoomed in and other than the issue with photos, you have a good number of awkward sentences. In other words, not written in standard English.
Your hub is also not so much an explanation of how the CCP governs China, but why the CCP is doing the right job and why "Western" accusations are wrong.
Lastly, the people reading this aren't likely going to be citizens of the PRC. So a sentence like "Nevertheless, everyone should accept and follow the outcome" is not only meaningless, for some, it will even be absurd.
Hi inqnet, along with the issues other author mentioned, your article seems very short, also your profile looks incomplete. Add some author bio.
Welcome to HubPages.
inquet, send us a link to the article and we canhelp. Thanks.
Miebakagh57, here is the link: https://hubpages.com/hub/How-does-the-C … na?hubview
Thanks for the response!
inquet, I clink on the link, and it took me to a page 404...'page not found' response. Have you delete the article? Undo the delete, and reinstate it. Thanks.
Inquet, sorry it's(Inqnet, right)? I still read a "404. Page does not exirts" reply. Have you totally deleted the article? It may be that you didn't properly copy and paste the link that hubpages gave you. Try again.
Miebakagh, why are you responding to a user who has been banned? The profile no longer exists.
The 'hubview' part of the link shows you wouldn't be able to see it - that link is only for the writer of the article. It's basically 'draft' mode.
I'm also pretty sure that asking readers for money through the "support me at this link" thing in your bio is a no-no.
If you want to explain to a certain audience why the CCP is right even though western news may suggest otherwise, make that the title. An opinion piece/commentary is okay so long as it is presented as such.
404 Page does not exist
The end of the article suggests that you used only one reference. That's not sufficient for the type of article that you've written. Though I'm not saying that this is the case for the newspaper that you've quoted, some newspaper articles are biased and even inaccurate. You need to include additional references that are considered to be authoritative.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand the OP has been banned. Predictable.
Why has he been banned? He was just asking for the improvement of his article?
Don't know. He was asking for money on his profile, so maybe that was the problem.
They will be banned for doing something bannable -- which does not include asking for help on the forums.
Hi, Well done your an amazing article but the major issue is the images which are referred to as the spammy elements which are probably not for public use from the authority so try and find some royalty-free images from sites like iStock and add credit and link of the photo which might resolve your problem, best of luck.

I want to contact local business owners in Menomonie, Wisconsin and brainstorm ways to improve the local economy. Does anyone have any suggestions? Keep in mind that it's a college town and has about 14,000 residents during the school year.

I love HubPages. It is the very first format that has allowed me to earn any money from my writing. Other sites used my writing to make money, but the reward was less than satisfying, as most of you may understand.Here is the problem. A lot of my articles are being copied. These articles are being...

I was wondering, how do you lead non-hubber to your profile so as to see all your articles instead of sharing your articles individually?I'll appreciate your answers.
