Can we have an author initiated date box put option on our hubs... the date would be when we wrote the hub and would help with our audience keeping track of serial hubs. It also helps if we want to arrange hubs by date...
The box could be optional for those writers who would use it or not.
One problem with that is, when I do a Google search for something and an article shows something like "written on july 3, 2007", I am highly likely to avoid that search result. I want something fresh and new to read, and, statistically speaking, so do a large amount of other people.
What you could do is create a sort of "umbrella" hub on your topic. For example, if you have something on your adventures in gardening, you would have hubs like:
Growing Cucumbers: Week One - Preparing Soil + Planting
Growing Cucumbers: Week Ten - Cucumbers Have Taken Over My Lawn
Growing Cucumbers: Week Fourteen - My neighbors called the police
Then, you would keep everything together in one big hub like:
My Adventures in Growing Cucumbers
And in that hub, you would have a tiny paragraph explaining each hub in your series. If you write fiction, you can just have a little teaser.
And then link to that hub from each hub in your series, so that people can quickly find your "index."
I hope this helps.
True... though I was hoping to be able to create a magazine out of hubs... where they could all have an issue series or date. We read old magazines... but because the date stamp would be at the authors option... it would not need to be put on every hub... just the hubs we wanted to add it to.

I often intend to put a module either within my hub, or at the end, that might include some standard text/a link, e.g. that says "Copyright Me (Year) - Please do not copy and paste this article, but feel free to...

I update and edit my own Hubs all the time. I proofread, remove and/or write new text, change or add images and videos and evaluate product choices. Typically it takes 15 or 20 minutes, but even the most extensive cases...

Sometimes people don't want to see the whole slide show.

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...
