Has anyone really read the featured articles recently? You should check them out...here is an excerpt...
Weddings or marriages are made in heaven” is a very usually quoted phrase on various situations that are directly or indirectly related to love or relationships. It’s true, weddings are the biggest turning points in the life of the couple that can literally change their lives, it’s not only about tying knots and living together, it’s farther lengthened than all these elements. Marriage is the stage where the girl gets abided to various adjectives and relations with the specific in-law at the end. It is a very distinctive feeling which cannot be described in words
That was a featured article on the HP home page!?!?!
Something is wrong here...
So that's why I've never been a featured writer here. I'm relieved.
Can you direct us to the Hub? I don't see it in the Homepage's featured Hubs. We obviously made a mistake and thank you for catching it!
Hmmm, well if it is written on HubPages, then...Robin or Maddie or whoever is in forums...you should look here also.

Chances are it is a duplicate or copied material. I typed in the paragraph in the OP post and found this in Google search results.
So, that Hub now has at least four flags, right? If not, folks, go get busy. It only takes a second - much less time than it took to post here.
I don't know how featured articles become featured. It would be a great question to ask the staff - but for now, let's do our part to help them out!
I'm flagging, but should you really have to flag featured articles? That's not the only one I found like that. It's embarassing! How DO they get to be featured articles? Enquiring minds want to know!
Another note: I also went to the HP homepage. But after 5 minutes, I gave up waiting for it load...
I wonder what google's opinion is of videos and/or other high-bandwidth doodads and their load times on a website's home page...
Edit: Videos and/or other high-badwidth doodads are ok everyplace else, but maybe the front page isn’t such a good idea…
I went back and couldn't find it. I don't remember which category it was under, but even the title was ungrammatical, that I do remember.
Post the links to some of the other featured articles you flagged.
Does your browser keep a history of the pages you have visited? I use my history often to find places I have visited, but can't remember. I use Internet Explorer (still).
I was on a different computer. Here is one I flagged, but not nearly as bad as that one.
Following through to the comments made on that hub, shows us even more people who do not truly understand how to speak English.
Ugh, you're right. I missed those! I'm embarassed to be a part of the whole wedding community!
So this hub you found featured on the specific topics page? I thought you meant the HP home page. I don't think those featured hubs on topic pages are chosen by people. It may have to do with views at that particular time.
And these critters are featured articles?
If so, then this looks like an ongoing problem. You just may have performed a great service to HP.
I also found the same paragraph here:
http://www.perfectweddingcloth.com/eleg … st-of-you/
Along with a bunch of really bizarre nonsensical stuff.
And finally found it on HP again:
That hub is in violation of HP TOS.
Did you notice the ads above the comment box? I've never seen ads placed there before. Have you?
No, and probably if we looked at the rest of her hubs, they would be in violation as well.
I've seen that happen with the ads a lot. If there are pictures placed all the way down the right side of the hub and there is no room for that ad that usually sits there it gets moved to the bottom of the text above the comment box. I like it there....if I wasn't so lazy (lol) I would go through and add photos to a lot of hubs to bump a few adds down there. I actually have one hub on my travel profile that is like this and it's one of my top clicked hubs.
I haven't seen ads there before. The font size seems larger than regular ads.
The hubber has duplicate content from the Buzzle site.
The ad does appear to be on steroids, right? But...look at that monster ad on the right side of the hub too. It's like twice the size as usual. So weird. This hub is definitely horrible. It makes you wonder if the Buzzle article that was copied was this hubber's original work or did they really think this was a quality article worth copying?
I've found it on four different sites besides HP!
I'm sure it's all duplicate content. If you click on the author's name at Buzzle, you see the same articles.
Hard to believe people would duplicate pure spun nonsense...
I'm way too naive.
We live in desperate times, people will do anything.. I'm always a bit amazed when I see hubbers divulge their income amounts in a forum. It's like an open invitation for those lurking about trying to find the high earners and copy their content.
oh well, it's the world we live in.
I'm going to bed. Yeah, Friday!
We all start out that way, DIY! It is a fatal flaw of honest people. The alternative is much worse though!
I would imagine these featured articles are those which bring in the most views and earnings. Probably a computer program decides which articles are chosen to be featured. I hope this is indeed the case, because if not, we are in real trouble!
From the article: "It is a very distinctive feeling which cannot be described in words."
My son said maybe that's the reason the writer is having so much trouble writing ("it cannot be described in words")!
Love it! I've never been "abided to different adjectives." I wonder what that's like?!
I'm generally pretty good at translating spun articles back to some kind of sense - when I choose to take the time. But that one surely has stumped me!!!
You're right there Rebekahelle, have often wondered the same thing.
Last month one was featured that I almost needed an interpreter to tell me what was written there. Bad grammatical errors all over the place. It's not unusual anymore. No wonder Google isn't happy with HP if That stuff gets featured.

I have noticed that some newcomers, who write poetry, are getting their Articles featured more quickly than those who write topical Articles. Is there a reason why this happens? Has other writers also noticed this and if so, any thoughts on why? I'm also wondering if Letter Pile is still valued.

This last year I improved my hubs and had 112 featured of 130 articles: Now suddenly they bust me down to only 30 featured hubs. I feel this contributes to a websites decline. I made a comment on a survey that I don't get any payout for this site and gave my opinion, and now...

In my stats I saw "the view author", I clicked it and my two featured articles disappeared from statictics. What's mean and how to return it?

Hey there! So I published an article a few days ago and asked for feedback from different people. Some people said it's very short and kinda a copy of other articles so I should rewrite it. (I don't believe that it's a copy, those were my ideas but yes they are same as the article they mentioned) I...
