Will my hubscore go down if someone flags my hub?

    Well, the title is pretty self-explanatory. Will it? Just out of curiosity.

    The flag tool is to alert staff to a hub which may not follow HP's TOS. Staff will review the hub and decide if anything needs to be changed. If so they will unpublish the hub and notify you via email, I believe.

    Either way I do not think that a hub receiving a flag would impact its score at all.

    A flagging has no action other than to alert admin. 

    If a Hub is genuinely in violation of the TOS, and is unpublished by admin, you will see it go down in score.  However, once the errant content is amended and the Hub is reviewed by admin, upon republication it will go back up again.

    Well, today I just found out one of my best hubs (in my opinion) was flagged. And my hubscore went down by 5 points. I can't see why someone would flag it.

      How would you know that it was flagged?

        This is what it said:
        Deceptive Tags, Title, or Category

        and someone unpublished it.

          That wasn't necessarily the result of a flag.

          And there was a violation, which means Hubpages admin unpublished it.

          relache's post is 100% accurate here.

            I've always found Relache's posts 100% accurate everywhere.

      And it turns out that the few people here who take the time to actually read the FAQ then become powerful wizards compared to the usual ignorant mortals...

    Wait, can you guys look at the hub to see if anything is wrong with it?

    1. livelonger profile image89
      livelongerposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      We can't if it's unpublished.

      If your title doesn't match the contents of the hub, there's your problem.

        It does. And I fixed the tags and everything. It's fine. It said that is was submitted for publication.

          Then you wait until Hubpages admin has a look and decides if it can be republished.

              I have the sneaking suspicion that some people use the 'flag' option to express their displeasure over unrelated matters at times.
