After looking at your hub on insect traps I'm not surprised, if that is an indication of your work.
You have a single sentence of 123 words. That's impressive!
Mulder, I just took a look at the same hub. It's a little on the short side, but the info is interesting and useful. The problem regarding your writing is that you need to use more punctuation, as well as breaking the information down into smaller chunks. Try using short, snappy sentences. Make sure you start each new sentence with a capital letter, then end with a full stop. Punctuation is there to assist the reader.
If you aren't sure what constitutes a sentence, try putting a full stop after each new idea, e.g.
'My wife and I made these yellow insect traps for our veggie patch. You can buy something similar at Bunnings for about $15.00 but you only get 4 and being plastic they tear easily if it gets windy. You can make this version at home cheaply and easily.'
I like your idea, and I'm planning to make some myself BTW!
No problem Mulder. There's not a lot wrong with your writing. You just need to work on those full stops and capital letters!
Gosh, I just looked at 3 of your hubs. Two of them had mostly plagiarized content (Hot Chocolate Recipes and Gordon Ramsey hubs), and the one on insect traps not only had a stolen photo with an obvious watermark on it, but there were more ads than there was text. I suspect you're going to be getting a lot more notices from the HP team in the future.
It never ceases to amaze me how blatant content thieves have the audacity to come onto the forum and publicly talk about their hubs and then get huffy and arrogant when someone calls them on their theft.
I've checked 10 of mulder's hubs, and all but one consisted of content stolen verbatim from other sites.

As per Jasons advice, please can we have the flagging system revamped, re the message sent in accordance with the need to inform the hubber that their hub/s are classed as unsuitable for HP. There appears to be the need for clarity. Naturally I'm aware that right now you guys have a lot of your...

All my hubs are marked for revision. Earlier this morning I received alerts for few hubs and then all of them were unpublished.I send message to hub support. I didn't receive any notifications or instructions what should I do. I never had any troubles before. I even used "Check for Violations...

Is a short hub considered substandard?Can a hub be flagged as substandard for being too short? I have recently published short hubs, and I fear that they may soon be considered substandard. Sometimes hubs are simply short, but having relayed useful information.

So, I had my hub moderated as substandard and I didn't see what made it so. I mailed them and got this reply:Well, the hub in question only had some text portions copied from my own hubs. But still, it's counted as duplicated and further considered substandard as the percentage of duplication was...
