The ability to edit non-featured hubs without them automatically...

    ...being resubmitted for feature status.

    This is for where the hubber has given up on featured status, but still wants to make the hub better without being a pest to HP.

    Heh... well, the thing is, we always have to re-evaluate things when they're edited because we have no way of making a special class of people who we can trust and who we cannot trust.

    Here's an example. A spammer comes to our site, writes something legitimately good, gets it Featured, and then re-edits it (asking not to be reviewed) putting in a ton of spam. We can't let that continue to be Featured- we have to be sure that it gets reviewed every time it is changed.

    Hope that justifies our move a bit more. I appreciate the suggestion though! It would be nice if there were a feasible way for us to do this.

      I had no idea. You guys must really love me when I go updating a dozen hubs a day, every day... big_smile

    I would think that eventually after one or two hundred good hubs you could start trusting people.

      It's not really an issue of trust. We need each Hub to have a quality rating associated with it for the system to work like it's designed to.

        psycheskinnerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

        So now every single hub has a rating manually applied by a staff member, reapplied after very single edit? That must be time consuming.

        But for the record, I was not the one who suggested the issue came from not being able to trust us (" we have no way of making a special class of people who we can trust " = we wouldn't have to do this if we could trust you, no?).

          "Right now, there are a small number of Hubbers where our system can process their Hubs immediately based on data we have.  We don't have this data for every Hubber yet.  We are working on expanding it."

        " for the system to work like it's designed to"
        Is this beyond a pass or fail test, and the ability to scale the pass mark up or down, or is the quality rating used for other things such as ranking in the topics?

    I think Simone clears up the issue pretty well.  I'm sure we've all met up with spammers, both in and out of HP.  They are a sneaky breed and find ways around doing all kinds of things.  HP is well known for it's integrity and quality.  We certainly wouldn't want to lose that standing in the Internet Community. 
    I for one am proud to be a part of the HP Community and would like to see it continue its high standing.
