I know, i have read the terms and conditions of Helium about publishing articles over Helium website but this is a little different. I submitted an article by trying to create a category and the article probably rejected because i place it in the wrong category. Since then i can see it in "My Articles" section and i am wondering how can i delete it. Maybe it is not a way to remove it but if any i like to learn about. Thank you.

send an email to help @ helium.com pasting url of your article - they may or may not delete it

Thank you Mr, I should do it from the beginning before i post any messages. How could i forget. ..but there isn't any url that corresponding to the article because article is not in public view. Just rejected. I emailed them by giving other elements about.

Look in 'My articles' and see what the status of the article is. If it is not 'active' it is not appearing on the site. You can see it from your account, but no one else can. You can resubmit if you want into the correct category to try to have it published, or you can just leave it there if you changed your mind about the article.

The reason that you can still see it in your account is because even rejected articles are valued by helium and the writers, and they leave it there so that you can amend it and resubmit more appropriately later on. I think its a good option since otherwise many would lose their work upon rejection. This way only the writer sees they have a rejection, and is assured a copy of it.

As said above, you can send a mail to help@helium.com stating the reason why you want to remove the article. Since you mentioned that you placed in the wrong category, you can ask for moving the article from one category to another.
