What exactly is this for?
Does X amount of points open X ability?
Just for show?

Hope that helps!
Don't worry too much about your Hubber Score, unless it falls below 75. If it falls below 75, then your links become nofollow. According to HubPages, the Hubber Score is influenced by:
* Activity in the forums
* Support of other Hubbers through comments.
* Asking quality questions and giving answers.
It will fluctuate from day to day, so don't obsess over it (as long as it is above 75).
There is a Learning Center entry on the matter here: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/hubs … bber-score
Thanks Simone; however this still doesn't clarify specifically what "hubber points" are good for. Therefore, since we're not allowed to know, then deductive reasoning leads me to believe that they're just for show.
I can understand the reason for keeping the algorithm a secret but I don't see how letting us know what they're good for, will have a negative affect.
As of this week, Hubber Scores take on a whole new meaning...
Thanks Earnest. Id seen somewhere before that links become dofollow after a certain score but it was never verified. This is the type of info I was looking for.

I have been on Hubpages for almost 3 years now! I have never experienced such a low HubberScore of 43-45, it has always been 70+, even in my worst days. What's even worse for my current situation, it is that this...

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My...

I've noticed that lately my score does not change for about three or four days. In the past it would fluctuate even within the same day. Has anyone experienced that?

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? ...
