If we publish a collection of our hubs as a book of essays, do Hubpages rules require us to retire the hubs, since they are published elsewhere? Or is it just online publication that they would frown on?
mostly online publication if it is print media i don't really think it will affect your hub score
The HubScore algorithm is very complicated and quite advanced. You probably don't realise it but the bots that HubPages sends out actually enter your house in the middle of the night and scan your bookshelves and any pieces of paper lying around your desk, especially near your printer. They report back to HP HQ and if they've got evidence of anything printed you're going to drop about 10 HubScore points and most times you won't even know why.
It's fine. I can't imagine them having a problem with it at all. If you however submit it as an assignment for a class you may run into trouble with the class lecturer/teacher/trainer who discovers it's already published online and you could get into trouble for plagiarism if they don't realise that it was you who wrote the original.

and they also report whether you wash your hands before having dinner to your local health officials, whether you did your math homework (when applicable), and how often you watch reality shows.

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to...

Is there some sort of criteria for which ones they decide are which? I have links in some of my hubs to my websites and some are follow and some nofollow.I wrote to the hubpages team for clarification but haven't...

You can't. Just had to put that out there as I'm seeing newbies all over the forums going on about these topics lately.Serious money comes from getting views from Google NOT from having other hubbers visit your work....

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I...
