This article was moderated by Ms. Bethany Dean. The article received three suggestions such as Find out how to make your page title even better - read some tips, Your page summary is good, but could be great - read some tips and Your spelling and grammar could be better - read our advice.

I revised the article following her suggestions and resubmitted it again on the same day but til now the article is still unreviewed. What happened to Ms. Bethany Dean? Where is she? Is she still at our Wikinut community?

I have many articles to submit here though I can't submit them til my revised article is finalized.
