Ideal Debate Format
This hub is a test of the HubPages Quality Assessment Process. I am using this hub as a trial to see what minimum requirements are necessary to pass the quality test and be featured. I plan to keep a status on this progress.
There is an ongoing discussion about how the HubPages quality process actually works. Some have assumed that a human is reviewing each hub while others believe it is performed by an automated process with AI assistance. This hub was written to test the system to see what minimum requirements are necessary to pass the QAP to become featured. This has tremendous implications to hubbers old and new who are struggling with creating and keeping their hubs featured. Lacking traffic to the hubs seems to be one factor in becoming un-featured. It takes about five or six months for this to occur. By editing the hub with a small minor change, the hub will become featured again after 24 hours.
Initial creation of this hub is on Feb. 16, 2016. It has a hubscore of "?" with 3 photos and approximately 300 words of text spread in three modules. Also, a link module was added to make it a complete hub design.
I plan to record and track this hub as it goes through the process. If necessary, I will add and modify the hub until it is featured. Would be interesting to see the final result.
In conclusion, I will publish on the forums the results of this experiment. My contention is that a minimum of 3 photos and 3 text modules with a total of over 300 words are sufficient to get any hubs featured.This is assuming the words are written in clear English and grammatically correct. I welcome any comment or suggestions.
Explain the Obvious
In case you didn't understand this test, here is the nutshell. I created a hub called "ideal debate format" and added some random images. The text modules contains information totally unrelated to the topic chosen. It was placed in the politics sub category even though this hub had no relations to politics or the debate as indicated by the title. Yet, it passed the QAP with flying colors and became featured.
The only conclusion is that no human editor read the content this hub or seen the images.
