    I have a hub that was told it had substandard quality.  Do they read the hub and see what it is trying achieve or what?  How do they figure out what is substandard?  I am not understanding at all.  I have an info and opinion hub.  Are they saying that my opinion, the info or the amount ot entries is substandard?  Plus you can only resubmit it a number of times.  I understand that they can not address every issue or 'tutor' everyone, but some more guidance would be appreciated.  Plus when you are first starting out, how long to they give you to create a following?  4 Days is how long mine has been up.  Thanks for any and all help.

      Here is the explanation of substandard:

      I notice you posted a lot of comments on a Hub (which I assume was your own).  You don't normally post comments on your own Hubs, except to answer other people.  Is it possible you posted your content in the Comments capsule by mistake?

          You should not be using the Comments capsule at all.  You can add additional text capsules.

    It looks like you've deleted the hub now, but it was originally moderated due to the length; it was too short.

        Don't get confused with 'hubs' and 'blogs'.  Hubs are article based, whereas blogs are ongoing and short.  If you want to keep updating your hub, that is ok - as Marisa says, just add a capsule.

        Hope this helps smile
