I wrote a hub. The editors sent me the email telling me to edit it and then it would be featured. This. I edited it, received the same email. Edited it again. Then it was featured for about 20 minutes. After that, it was gone! It was on the second page of Religion. But, only for 20 minutes. What did I do wrong?

Thank you, I appreciate your answer very much. I just don't understand why it was featured for a very short time.
That is just horrible to hear. In other words if a hub is partially written using -- oh I don't know -- say Ebonics or real Aussie slang for literary effect and accuracy the QAP/M-Turk is going to bonk it on the head for quality? It is hard to switch
Well, I think the editor didn't like it, so that person just took it down. Oh, well
You are right. A few people let me know that. Guess that will let me know what to ask next. How do people know what moderators know what topic people like. But to be honest. I don't write to get paid, I just write what I want to write.
Many just write here, not work here. And many confuse our desire to question and understand as whining about HP. This last exchange shows that critical inquiry leads to more understanding. Thanks Michele.
I have had hubs that have been put on the featured pages. But, a few of them need to be improvement. This one I received 3 emails. I edited it 3 times It was featured only for 20 minutes. I am not kidding. Why was it taken off?
I beliewve Eric may have explained in best in has comment to sheilamyers. I have no real answer as to why it was featured for only 20 min.
graceinus you, Eric are probably right. Perhaps the editor did not like it. Perhaps it was red flagged. I am pretty sure, I will never find out.
I have had a few hubs flagged because Amazon or E-Bay adds weren't matched to my Hub. I have also had some red flagged because I used my general business Akers- Enterprise,com and had it cleared using one of my store that are a part of my business.
But I have am not making money on hubpages. I just write when I want to. Which is not all the time. Just now and then.
I think there is something to this statement also. It is just fine for us not to make money here. However the business of the site is to make money. I suspect that we need to make some effort to make money here. Probably a category for us who do not.
I've had more than a few hubs that were feaured and than later removed because they now decides they are not up to their standards. Its becoming very confusing!

I am pretty confident that programs run the first go around. But HP has some folks who do actually reviewing. I would assume by a red flag or random of about 10% and probably both. And there real job is to make sure the machine is working right. BUT!
Why would this hub receive a red flag? There are a lot of hubs about scientology much worse then this one.
I agree with you. Maybe they just didn't like it. Oh well.
