    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!

            If you want to earn money from your hub it should be at least 200 words, over 400 is best.

            I'm quite sure that a hub gets a warning if it's around 100 or so words.

        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.
