Published a new hub yesterday -- over 1000 words, pics, table, brilliant writing -- it went to pending as usual. Today, it's idled. Have edited and republished and now pending again. Frustrating.
I guess "1001 ways to create a Justin Bieber hairstyle" has too much competition! Perhaps change it to "Even Donald Trump could look like Justin Bieber" and you might be onto a winner!
Wow! Maybe it's some sort of glitch because that seems pretty crazy!
I'm sorry that happened, theraggededge.
Our rating system is not perfect, and I am glad that you caught the mistake early on and have edited and updated the Hub so that it can be rated once again.
We're doing our best to make sure this does not happen to good Hubs, but it is very important that you keep an eye on their status (as you have) to make sure you find any mistakes. Thanks for doing that, and thanks for your patience! I apologize for the mistake.

I find it kind of ridiculous that I have been waiting for a couple weeks now for one of my hubpages to be published. What was the longest time you have ever had it take to get a hubpage to publish?

I'd like to suggest that "normal" Hubs should have an exclamation mark next to them on our account page.I think there's a very high risk that new Hubbers will misunderstand the normal/Featured system. ...

The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....
