I just published a new Hub in answer to a request and immediately the score went down to 19. Shall I wait for some time before pulling it back(because I have seen somewhere that it will have a nofollow tag or will not be indexed or something like that once the score falls below 40)? Perhaps a little more refined scoring system for the answers to the requests will be ok?

Its alright now. But I still wonder why this happens. Thank you folks.
I do recall reading that on the forum too, but the nofollow only effects outbound links. So it has no influence on the page itself as far being indexed by Search Engines. It's just removing the benefit of the page to the sites that it's linking to.
I am lead to believe that once it rises back above that threshold that the nofollow status is removed from the Hub.

I am hearing that hub scores, not AUTHOR scores, but the scores of your individual hubs must be 75 or better or they will have a no follow set up on them? Does anyone know if this is true?
