    How does someone with over 400 hubs, 900 followers, and over 20 months of being a member get a score of 1? I saw a one next to there photo.... how does that happen.

        I know which Hubber is meant, but I'm not sure if it's right to name her / him on a Forum Thread. She / He does have 947 Followers and 421 Hubs.

          I've wondered that myself.  I figured this certain person broke a rule and was being penalized.

            me too!  I know of two hubbers that have 1 hub score and they've been here over a year.  I always felt sorry for them because how can anyone get a 1 for hubscore.

          Why does this type of privacy matter so much on a public webpage's forum where names are not private at all?

        I'd rather not say who it is... it isn't good forum etiquette, or nice to point anyone out. Sorry.

          I agree.  I know of two of them.  I really feel bad for them.

      Perhaps hubpages found something nefarious they were doing and reset their author score down to 1 manually.

    One reason could be that every single one of their hubs is repeated somewhere else on the Internet, either because the hubber in question has plagiarised them or because they've duplicated their own content from other sites as hubs.

      I think you hit the nail on the head there smile
      I have seen folks with no hubs, fans or anything else with higher scores.

        I know, I have seen someone with no hubs but a lot of followers!  I find it hilarious!

    Does a hubber earn a score of 1 if he/she is banned or deletes the account?  That would be my guess.

      Then the Hubber would no longer be a Hubber, and not exist at all on HubPages. There would be no profile, no score - nothing. Gone.

        Recently, a certain hubber proclaimed that he would be requesting a deletion of his account.  Two days later, his old posts had a "1" next to his profile name.

          That's strange ...

            I thought so, too, Camlo.  I don't know if that "1" sticks forever, but there must be a transition period, at least, before the account goes away for good.

    I thought that if a hubber was found to be stealing content, they'd be dumped, or at least the offending hub would be removed...

      I've always understood that if you've duplicated material (your own), then scores would suffer. If that's right, that could be the reason for such a low score.
      As for stealing, yes, I've always understood as you do.

    That's what happens when, "You're number 1!"

    could be due to a loooong period of inactivity. I watched the scores of friends of mine that had left the site but left their profiles and hubs up, drop continuously. Of course it takes a while to get that low. Could have been some questionable behavior that accompanied the inactivity too.

      no, definitely not the case for one I know.

    Who are we to judge?
    Whoever this hubber is, if his/her,s account has not been closed by hubpages, then he/she cannot be breaking any rules.
    Why don,t you ask his/her followers or read some of the hubs jn question.
    Or maybe better still ask the hubber instead of making forum posts.

    Gee that rant made me feel good.

    Getting a HubScore of 1 is a lot like drinking a milkshake through a straw.

    You just have to suck really hard.
