I'd like to suggest a new feature to be added in a hub - its published date along with its byline. We can only know the published date of our own hubs by visiting our account, but how about the others' hubs?
And if an old hub needs to be really updated, we will just include the revision date in its content since published date is fixed.
What do you think?
One of the reasons could be that the date can be used to prove that you published it first. If the publication date is known publicly, then someone else can put it on their website with an earlier date and claim they published it first. Now you can simply prove that you published it first by giving the actual date on which the content first appeared on the internet.
