Here's a thought. Since HP rates our hubs numerically before they feature them, why not give a specific number to each hub as it is being written. That way, writers could see whether they need to improve upon what they have written. The suggestion box at the upper right is great, but it does not really tell us where we stand. Any thoughts?
From my limited coding experience I guess creating a computer algorithm to do that would be a massive pain in the bottom to get working without significant bugs.
There are so many variables to consider, and if it was only based of measurable criteria the it would disregard the most important criteria, how well written the hub is. A computer would't be able to tell the quality of your content (well not without a huge team of programmers and many years perfecting a system.).
@lbsf1 you are right. Assuming that the review process is done by human than adding option to do 'pre-review' would simply increase their work by many factors.
Also creating the algorithm for the process would not be easy.
For now just publish and 'unpublish' is probably enough in most cases.
And yet, they already are rating the hubs on a 10 point scale, are they not? Doesn't this mean the algorithm for doing so is already in place? I am only asking that they reveal what score they placed a hub on...is this so difficult to do?
