I am at a loss when they tell me that something I've submitted to Holidappy is not evergreen enough.
Here is my site with printable Winnie-the-Pooh Valentine cards. https://discover.hubpages.com/holidays/ … epards-Art
I understand that they will only become noticed once a year, but isn't that the case for almost all holidays?
These cards will be relevant for every Valentine's Day that comes up.
They also say it needs to be more relatable. From my experience, lots of people have related to Winnie-the-Pooh and lots of people like to make handmade cards.
What can I do?
Don't know about the evergreen issue, that looks fine. There's a slight problem in the text. It says, "Permission is not granted for commercial use." Yet, HubPages is a commercial site, displaying advertising and from which you derive earnings.
I've just checked out the E H Shepard images that you've copied from Wikimedia Commons and they are ALL scheduled for deletion from that site. They have been incorrectly tagged as being in the public domain. This means that you CANNOT use them without permission from the copyright holder. The drawings are still in copyright and you could find yourself being chased for thousands of dollars for royalty payments.
The best thing you can do at this stage is delete your article and start again. Why not create your own drawings? Then you'll know that you have the right to use them.
Thanks for your comment. I was aware of the copyright issue. I believe Wikimedia is still discussing this issue. So far, they have 2 votes for deletion and 2 votes to keep. A page by Duke University states that they are in the public domain. "In 2022, the first Winnie-the-Pooh book from 1926 1 is entering the US public domain. Anyone will be able to copy, share, and build upon it without permission or fee." In regards to using the illustrations, they sayd "Using those original Shepard drawings in a comic book or animation is different—this is not the kind of use that misleads as to the source of a product. It is something that copyright expiration plainly allows."

Your own article states that the images are not for commercial use. And you are using them on a commercial site.
I think that "commercial use" refers to the entity that is using the images, not the site where they are hosted. For instance, Hallmark greeting cards (a large greeting card company here in the US) cannot legally use the images because that is considered commercial use. A private person using them for their own personal use is not considered commercial use and would be legal.
It doesn't matter where the images are hosted. Publishing on HubPages does not constitute commercial use as far as I know.
If the person republishing the images is doing so for monetary gain, that is commercial use.
That's why some Creative Commons images are not eligible to be published here.
OldRoses, that is not correct. The quote below is from the HubPages Learning Center. https://hubpageshelp.com/content/Learni … -image-use
Images That Cannot Be Used on HubPages:
"A "Non-Commercial" image cannot be used if you have ads turned on for your article. If you are earning money from your article, it is commercial, and you cannot use images that have been designated for only non-commercial use."
It's not that the image is "non-commerical." It's in the public domain. I was referring to people who would want to take the whole card design, print it, and then sell those when I was talking about commercial use. However, since the copyright registration covers that, I deleted it from the site.
I still don't know why it isn't evergreen, though.

I know that hubpages is strict about violations and copyright but is it a violation to post a youtube video in your hub, which you know includes copyrighted material, which the one uploading the video did not have permission to upload? Like a movie clip or a song lyrics video. I know the internet...

I am new to hubpags and am wondering where you obtain legal images to post on your hub? Obviously if the photo's or artwork is yours you are ok, but what about images pertaining to fashion or even art from research.
