Published a new hub yesterday -- over 1000 words, pics, table, brilliant writing -- it went to pending as usual. Today, it's idled. Have edited and republished and now pending again. Frustrating.
I guess "1001 ways to create a Justin Bieber hairstyle" has too much competition! Perhaps change it to "Even Donald Trump could look like Justin Bieber" and you might be onto a winner!
Wow! Maybe it's some sort of glitch because that seems pretty crazy!
I'm sorry that happened, theraggededge.
Our rating system is not perfect, and I am glad that you caught the mistake early on and have edited and updated the Hub so that it can be rated once again.
We're doing our best to make sure this does not happen to good Hubs, but it is very important that you keep an eye on their status (as you have) to make sure you find any mistakes. Thanks for doing that, and thanks for your patience! I apologize for the mistake.

Many good quality pages are Idled (become unfeatured) via ‘Analysis of the how engaged readers are with a Hub over an extended period of time’ – essentially because they get low traffic.It appears that this...
