    One last question - yeah yeah, promises, promises! wink

    What is the typical timeline for a response to changes made to a hub that a writer (hubber) has reworked in response to either the "needs improvement" status and/or which had been a 'duplicate' of a piece published elsewhere (sometimes many times over!) before the whole Google algorithm uproar and the subsequent changing of the rules in almost every "ugc" (user-generated content") or blog site out there?

    I did keep a lot of the substance - and the form/order is identical to the original duplicate.

    But I made *significant* revisions, reframed a couple of my paragraph's central points, and nearly doubled the word count.

    Just wondering how soon it will be before I get a yay/nay on the revision...   I editted it about 6 days ago.

    Thank you, folks.

    Your query may be asked at team@ hubpages, it may also take a few days for a response.

    The team responds within three to four days... just send them a reminder, six days is long enough.

      Thanks for the responses, K_J and sofs.  Sofs, how would I send such a reminder?  To whom would I send it?  And would I do it by re-rewriting it (blech) or just pretending to do so with an unchanged resubmit?  It is through "contact us" or what? 

      No idea how to approach them - or who "they" are.  Any further elaboration would be appreciated.  Thanks. smile

    Pretending to rewrite would not be a great idea as it just wastes their time. Just click the help link to get the email form for contacting Hub staff.
