I noticed someone getting selected for hubpro even though their articles only contain one photo each that aren't sourced, no separation in text, and no polls, maps, or videos. I thought HubPro was for hubs that actually were mostly developed according to HP standards. Is Hubpro for hubs that don't meet any of the quality standards? Are there any requirements at all for HubPro? I'm a bit disappointed since I thought this was something to help hubbers who were already helping themselves.

I think those people should be using the things that are already in place to build their articles. Something that is suppose to be so great for the hubber should be reserved for people already using what is available on here. JMO.
It's image management. HubPages is trying to get rid of a reputation for being full of crap articles.
I'd argue that hubs like that shouldn't pass the QAP in the first place and that editing should be reserved for those who make more of an effort.
It's not about benefits to the authors, but about making sure the hubs that get the most views do not reflect badly on HubPages. HP also cannot afford to lose high traffic hubs, so they're stepping in to fix them instead of un-publishing them.
I understand that point as well. I suspect someone with 10k views didn't get picked, but if they did, that's a bit unfair to those with hubs with much higher traffic.
None of mine picked either, but I really had hope they would at least stick to helping articles that were already at least decent in how they already are. Maybe you're right about it being a good topic and them not wanting better experience for view
This contradicts what the person claiming it has. That user doesn't even have 10,000 total views on all their articles. Maybe, hopefully, they were lying. I love the hubpro concept, just don't like the idea of lazy writers getting it. Thanks!
I'm not sure what/who is claiming what, but it's a pretty limited in the number of Hubbers that get HubPro services now.
A hubber with fewer than 10,000 overall is unlikely to have any hubs chosen for HubPro since they are starting at the top views per hub and going down. Since many have individual hubs with more views that haven't been chosen, the claim seems fishy.
