    I have just had 3 of my articles (which I write for fun) flagged as violating content policy. I have no idea what the reveiwer wants or why I am violating the rules. Attempted to contact reviewer and was told to read the rules.
    Can anyone help in telling me what I am doing wrong?

    The Violation message is:
    "The quality of this Hub does not live up to HubPages' standards. It may be uninspired content in heavily saturated topic areas, short or unoriginal content, purely personal content, promote dubious products or offers, or it may contain low resolution images or images that prominently watermarked. These factors diminish the value of this Hub to our community."

      Hey Peter, your first statement is tell us that you don't know why they were pulled and when you contact HP admin, you are told to read the rules.

      Yet, the last paragraph of your OP states why each hub was pulled down. If you would like check out the "blue" admin threads at the top of the forum list to see changes in the rules..

      Things have changed and YOU must change with them or vacate(because the stuff will be unpublished because it's a violation). However, each hub you posted a link to is unpublished.

    So when you contacted them they just told you to read the rules?
    That doesn't sound right.
    They have always told me exactly what was wrong.
    Contact them again if you don't see the problem after going over the Hubs.

    Your hubs are offline so I can’t see them.

    Maybe nobody cares about your dog? smile

    Are these Hubs purely personal? That could be the reason they are sub-standard.

    I'm quite puzzled, Peter. I read two of the three yesterday and commented, too. I thought they were engaging and well-written "slice of life" articles, each with an entertaining narrative and an interesting point made.

    Are these articles published in their entirety anywhere else on the net?

      No - these are the originals and just bookmarked elsewhere.

    Based on Sally's post, how about changing the titles from "My Dog Loves..." to "Dogs Love..."?

      This is good advice, since (all?) the dog Hub titles have the same long text preceding the words that actually describe what the Hub is about.

    Thx everyone.
    I emailed Support again and asked for a specific reason, if they are too personal, or some other thing that I did.
    I'll report back here.

      I imagine they are up to their necks trying to answer all of the queries.  Apparently, the standard generic notification is hoped to be enough for the writer to find the problem without a human actually contacting the author. What a mess!  smile

      Good. Can't wait to hear what the problem is. Because if the two Hubs of yours I read are considered "purely personal", then there's going to be a lot of valuable writing going down the drain here.

    If in doubt I proofread, ensure length is over 500 words and add a 'take home message' to show clearly what I hope the reader will learn from the hub.  It has always worked so far.

    Peter, your hubs are overly promoting your favorite location and it is promoting a business zone there, in this a case a winery.

    I finally heard back from the Editor.

    All 3 were initially tagged as Too Personal.  He reconsidered the first two and republished them without any required edits. In the 3rd hub he wanted some edits "... add some information (such as breed information, local places to take your dog, etc) that would be relevant to a reader who does not know you personally or someone who has only seen this hub and not the others in the series"
    It took two rewrites to satisfy him adding some of this info and he approved it last night.

    I am still not sure why they object to Personal stories, and why I got tagged considering a lot of hubs I have read are just personal rantings. But you can't fight city hall and I'm just glad Louie is back.
