    So, why is my poem, "Chronicles Of A Misfit," having QA issues?

    I have deleted the links that I felt were the problem and still it was unfeatured. So, I took the ebay link off. I don't get this, it is set up exactly like my other poetry; probably even with a little less. I think it may be the wording of my poetry. Although I hope not, because it's the way I want it to sound. Maybe the Marilyn Manson video perhaps? Anyway, before anyone cares to answer, I would like to add that I am not asking for opinions on how to make it monetary, because I know poetry isn't that monetary.

    Under your picture of Shakespeare is a large amount of copy and paste. It is possible that you are having issues because there is as much copy and paste as there is content in that section. Remove that and you may not have any issues.  Also the words boobs and b@stard may be an issue.

      Ah, I see. Thanks! Yes, I was worried about the cursors, but I used them to put the point across in that dramatic way. I will try the Shakespeare poem first, then if that doesn't work, I'll see what kind of revisions otherwise I can do. smile

      They should say why they aren't published. I'd email the team maybe first. It's a good piece. I'd hate to see you butcher it for QA and it not even be the reason it was being messed with to begin with. They respond within a day usually by email.

      Thank you Annsalo. You've been extremely helpful and so nice. I'm glad you liked my poetry piece. I went ahead and deleted the Shakespeare poem, which I thought was good just because it chronicled a life in a different way. smile

    I echo some of the other responses Missy. Please don't butcher this wonderful piece of work trying vainly to find the problem. I am sure the words "boobs and b@stard" would not be the problem. If they were or the Marilyn Manson video it would only have ads disabled not be unfeatured.
    It seems however that there is someone new on the hub review team because recently I have found some of my highest rating hubs lose their featured status and one long time hub suddenly had ads disabled (it due to a black and white photo of a naked couple holding hands and walking in the rain...back view). I have been busy going through un-featured hubs removing Amazon and eBay capsules or altering titles to get them back up.
    I agree you should contact the team because I can't see anything wrong with your hub. Good luck.

      Well, so far, I have taken off ebay and amazon ads and took that William Shakespeare poem off. And, of yeah, I took all of the links to the bios off, which made me sad, because those were interesting.

    Hi, Missy--
      I've read and enjoyed your poem.  I don't think either of the two words you mentioned are the issue, but perhaps the word, "sh*t" is the issue.  I'm not sure.

    As another has mentioned, it seems there may be a new moderator on the team who has something of a blue-hair streak.

    Don't give up.
