I just looked at my account, and all of my published hubs have the "featured" H on them. The only exception is the new pending one I've just added.
Are we now using the "featured" icon instead of the dot we had before to indicate active hubs? I also noticed that the zzz is missing in the legend. So are we not having idled hubs anymore? Have I missed an announcement somewhere?
Look on the latest blog. It explains it, well kinda. I am not really sure either, even after reading it.
If it isn't featured, it is still idled. At least that is my understanding.
That's how I'm reading it too. If a Hub isn't featured, it will be removed from all the category and topics pages and from your profile, and will have the "no index" tag applied. So really, nothing has changed except the terminology. They're just trying to pitch it in a more positive way.
And whether or not a Hub is featured has nothing to do with HubScore or traffic, and everything to do with how it's rated over at Mechanical Turk.
Bard I have just noticed this and left a query about editing there.
