Guess it happens to everyone sometime, I received my first non featured hub notice today. I kind of liked my hub and after about two weeks of working on it - I can't help wondering why it did not meet the quality test.
I am curious. If I I tweet it and I google+ it, will it still receive any traffic or will it just sit there gathering dust. I can see that it has already had 12 visitors. Sometime when you write something you have the feeling that you don't actually want to change anything you have written- anyone else feel like that.
janshares is right. Sometimes those actions will cause the Hub to be featured again. I'd add some photos, video, maybe change the title. It is a shocker to see this, especially when you feel it is a good Hub. Try and rescue it. You will never understand the reason it got unfeatured; don't even try.
Sorry sallybea. I know the feeling. I got one the week the new QAP first rolled out. It can be a stinger especially when you thought you were immune. Ha, ha, ha. It's a learning experience that teaches us that NO ONE IS EXEMPT. I was able to get mine featured within hours by adding content. I'm sure yours will pass with a few edits but I know what you mean feeling, "but it's fine the way it is, dammit!" Go ahead and make a few simple tweaks. It will be fine. And yes, I do believe you can send the link to friends before it passes.
Your post is a little confusing. If the hub did not "meet the quality test" then all the tweets and promotion in the world aren't going to change that. Only editing it to produce a higher quality score will.
If instead, it is an older hub that simply doesn't get any SE traffic, tweeting isn't going to change that either. Editing it might, if it will produce a hub that google and searchers smile upon.

I have a non-featured hub that is part 2 of 2. Part 1 got featured but every time I delete part 2 the score rises along with activity it seems. If the quality is not good enough to feature then why does it score as one...

Currently a hub gets featured if it scores 6 or above overall (correct?). Although I understand some of the reasoning behind not showing detailed QAP scores, I think that splitting 'featured' into two:Featured (with a...

I published a hub on 20th Oct, 2015. It got the featured hub status immediately. It was fine till last week. But today, it's no more a featured hub due to quality issue. My question is - why after 4 months?
