Since the institution of pending hubs, I am unsure of when a hub I publish for the Rigorous Review Contest will count.
If I publish a hub on the last day of October knowing it will be pending for a day, will it count towards Day 1 of the contest? Or do I publish my hub on November 1st, knowing it will pend until November 2nd? In that case, will anyone be able to have actual submissions for Day 1? Or does HP look and say, "Well, it was officially published on November 1st, so it counts for Day 1."?
Or is it okay to have a hub completed but saved as unpublished? Will an unpublished hub still be able to go through the pending process so that I can do one in advance (saved but unpublished on the site), have it cleared and then publish on Day 1 so it can really count towards day one and not have to pend for another 24 hours?
Will it be easy to keep track of our allotted submissions for a day with this new pending system?
Thanks for any help. I know it's a lot of questions. But I am just trying to get a full understanding.

I'd submitted three articles to day but none of them, published. Why?

I just completed a one year study of the best times for me (my time zone) to publish a hub in order to gather the most initial one day views. I have found that when I publish a hub at 2:30 pm (Florida time/Pacific time) I get the most views in a one day frame. The reasoning is that at 2:30 pm it is...

It looks like HP may have found a way of "Blocking the Bot" during pending. For my latest hub that has been in the sin bin for 20 hours (pending) the bot tracker message says "Not recently crawled". This means the bot has no seen the "noindex" tag and gone on vacation...
