Have you seen the message about Idle hubs on your account page. Here we go again. I guess we will be deleting hubs now if HP determines they are idle as they put it. Well, I guess winter holiday hubs are not going to be popular topics in August. Duh!
ZZZZZZ.....well, if they have to go?...then that means i go i guess.......back to sleep for now....zzzz....

My author score is now 88. I've been active on the forums, hopping hubs, and answering questions. I haven't had this low of score since when I first started. Does removing poorly performing hubs cause author scores to go down or what is the problem?

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?

I've been a little down about not having received a payout for nearly two years of participation here, but I'm looking at Triond, another writing site, and I must say how grateful I am for the amount of control I have about how my article looks here at Hub Pages by comparison. When I delete...
