I remember Staff telling us that in this new test that seasonal hubs and others would stay featured longer. To my surprise I signed on today to find a seasonal hub now un-featured!
Has there been another rule change?
Yes, Hubs may be featured for up to nearly one year depending their author's Hubber Score. This does not mean that they will always have Featured status, and seasonal Hubs will still require more upkeep than their non-seasonal, evergreen counterparts.
I hope that clears things up a bit! Rest assured that your high Hubber Score is making a difference.
I was wondering since it became featured again after the new post by HP for the longer time frame. Now it is un-featured again. In some seasonal material one has to wait for fresh info to become available to update them...as in sports hubs.
I still have no idea why my Easter hub was never published. I know there's a reason, I just can't figure it out. It's called Blessed is the King.
Never mind about this hub. I just deleted it, and 6 more, even though they were featured still.

I recently had a hub un-featured for engagement, as the half-circle indicates. I think this is an unfair practice and should be eliminated entirely. Here's why I feel this way:Our hub traffic is often affected by the...
