I have read the FAQ and http://hubpages.com/hub/Substandard < this hub.
My hub was rated substandard twice. 1st time - mod notice left behind was the text was too small. And i agree it was hard to read. I re-did it and published. An admin accepted it then i got another e-mail that it was again substandard. It may be because of this: "A hub that consists of a link, feed, picture, or video, with little or no explanation or commentary, is not very useful to the community or to visitors from the web at large. Adding a few paragraphs of original, quality content is an easy way to remedy the problem if you've been flagged for a hub in this category."
My explanation and instructions is in a picture. Is this a problem?
Thank you for reading,
Looking forward to your help,
P.S. here is the image i am talking about: http://s2.hubimg.com/u/5048105_f520.jpg
I can't link to the hub as it is unpublished.
The text of that Hub is embedded in an image, so the Hub effectively has very little actual text.
I would remove the image and just type out those instructions you currently have in the image.
But that was accepted by an admin. So i guess nothing is wrong with the actual image?
hi, I have checked the image out as well, and I agree with Jason Menayan....So far it looks like you have just published a picture as a hub with no text or explanation....did you create this image yourself? or is it from a website?
Thank you for your replies,
It's mine and there is text but i can't show because the hub was unpublished.
There's copyright on the image itself, "Made By Yehya, Do Not Rip"
i can even show proof of .psd
Re-writing it in text form sounds a good idea. If that is the problem i'll do it. Can any mod/admin confirm this?
Jason Menayan who replied to you above is a HubPages staff member. The little green "H" in the lower left of his avatar confirms this fact.
I think I would write sentences and not short terms. Also write more and perhaps a video if you can find one.

Lately as I hubhop, I am finding lots of photo only hubs. Are these considered low quality? It would seem that hubs need to have text of some kind besides a title. I started out flagging them as low quality, but I don't...

Well I decided to make a simple little layout to hopefully help some people out.It is clear videos are the future, and the lack of videos on this site is actually kind of embarrassing. Content is key and we should be...

Want to see some amazing low quality hubs? Go to the top of the page, click hubbers, then click "latest". There will be a few good ones but at least half are spam and many hubs are just a few sentences, often...

On another thread, a Hubber suggested that if HubPages had a minimum word count, it would prevent some spammers.I know that a very low word count can get a Hub flagged as substandard, but perhaps it's set too low at the...

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...
