I was surprised that the other thread on this subject hadn't been touched for 3 days since it is such a serious issue. I knew I wasn't the only one being affected by it, yet no one has mentioned it since Saturday.

I've pointed it out to Kevin and Ryan. They asked for links to articles that were dropping in score.

I tested another article this morning. I opened it, then republished and it dropped 11 points.

I speculate that one of the many updates they are pushing through in preparation for 4.0 has broken the scoring system.

I'm not posting anything new or editing anything else until it is fixed.

Did this get fixed?

I am not a good writer but normally articles of more than 1300 words would have more than low 50 scores I would think.  One has 7 pictures and interlinked with my other articles and still only 55. the other new article is 53 and has couple of pics 1400 words and amazon links.  So wonder why too.

Well part good news ne of mine has gone to green 65 the other one still yellow.

I tried to edit an article I'd previously published to ad an Amazon link; all I got for my trouble was an "article" denied message from info barrel. Huh????

There are many specific reasons for denial even after it was already published once. Posting passive aggressive wtf on three different threads is not going to see your problem resolved as quickly as a single posting describing the issue(s) would have. Why was it denied? They give reasons, too many links, incorrect formatting and so on. Was this an older article that may not be up to todays snuff (standard) ... a little more information and those of us who do take the trouble to help ... can help.

Yes. What is the specific denial message? Amazon too close to the top? More than 1 Amazon module for 200 words?

That isn't what this thread is about.

But, since you didn't create a new thread about your problem, and I see you hijacked a few other posts similarly with this unrelated issue, I'll try to answer.

You said it was an old article, I don't know how old since you didn't say but it appears you haven't written anything here in a very long time, maybe it is now considered substandard and that is why it was rejected now.

If we knew the article name one of us could read it and advise.

Hey guys,

I'm new in InfoBarrel and just a couple of hours ago, I sent my first article for review.

When I was done with my article and I tried to preview, only my image and article title came out. My content was gone in Preview but available in the CMS.

Thinking that it's a current minor bug in Preview I submitted my article.

Just now, I received an email saying my article was denied because I had less than 325 words. Thing is, my article has 1000+ words.  * facepalm *

I think whatever update is happening is also affecting the CMS.

Hope this would be solved soon. I really want to join InfoBarrel to gain experience in article writing

I think this is a bug in the system. I have articles posted that have over 1500 words, but the word count that shows is much lower. It seems to be something to do with having too many elements. Is your article broken down into several text elements? How many videos and amazon products have you included?
