Someone is reading my unfinished entry and pointing it down!?! Wtf--how does that work, cuz it's feels like a downer when my unpublished work gets points down--when i'm not even finished with it!!! *Annoying*
How are they able to read it if it's unpublished? Don't publish anything until you are happy with it and it's finished.
I don't think that can actually happen, Sandie. You might write to the hubteam, I'm sure they'll explain what's really going on.
Your unpublished work is only seen by you and HubPages staff. And, I am pretty sure staff isn't doing anything with your hub considering the number of employees trying to do multiple things.
What you write isn't their concern until you publish. If it is against TOS then they will not point it down, but will unpublish it.
The only person visiting your unpublished hubs is you.
If you are getting views, that is yourself looking at it.
No one can vote down your hub if it isn't published. And I doubt anyone is doing that, let alone on purpose.
I personally never use the vote down button, I have probably only used it a handful of times. And that is because the hub wasn't even readable, literally.
I can't even understand why there is a vote down button - if a hub's that bad, then it's flaggably bad, i.e. you'd click on "Flag" rather than "Vote down". ("Flaggably"? Is that a word? )
I think it is just something that happens, unpublished hubs rise or sink in score even before they are published. They start at around fifty, I have some unpublished that have gone down to 47 and others have gone up to 60's.
Think of it like the traffic lights no one is making them turn red against you, that is it is not a person judging you or your hubs.
Do you mean that you think people are rating your hub down? Because it's not possible for the writer of a hub to know how many (if any) down ratings their hubs get. And that applies to published hubs - unpublished ones aren't even visible to other readers.
If you're referring to the hub score, well - hubscore is a mysterious thing and not worth getting worked up over. I often find that when I first publish a hub, the score will go down to 48 or even 47, before its score starts to slowly climb.
HubScores fluctuate, even before you hit publish.
No one else is looking at your hub or voting you down.
Those arrows pointing down are an indicator of the hub not being read. So actually that just proves nobody is reading your hub.
