    From time to time I go back and take a look at old hubs. While they may be featured, they may only have slipped past the QAP requirements. What I'd like is the ability to send a featured hub back through the process. I realize I shouldn't be able to do this for every hub, but if I susbstantially change the hub (say by adding 500 words or more) then I would like to resubmit to QAP.

      You mean you voluntarily want to send a hub past QAP?

        Well the theory behind this is:

        If my QAP scores are factored into my Hubber Score, then if I have a lot of hubs that average 7 whereas my newer hubs average 8 then the older hubs will be dragging my Hubber Score down. So if I substantially improve older hubs I'd want them to be QAPed so my overall quality score improves.

        Not sure if it's really that important - but I'd rather be safe than sorry!!!

    If you edit it, then it supposedly goes back through QAP. Several of my scores have changed after editing. They have gone up if I added video and additional text. I found one hub that somehow lost text from the conclusion. It helps my confidence in my writing to make improvements.

      I thought they only go back to the QAP if they were un-featured and edited?

      Correct! Every Hub that is edited goes through the QAP again. big_smile

    Simone - wouldn't we see the spinning arrows if a hub is going through QAP?  When I do quick, minor edits to a hub that's already published, I don't see that happening.  I agree with Simey - it would be great to have that review process to hubs we are tweaking.

    I personally would not want this to happen to hubs that are already published AND featured.  If that was the case they would have the no-index tag from what I understand. 

    That would make it problematic for popular hubs that you might want to edit.  It would put them offline for awhile, right?

    Since I have some hubs that I update as information comes out, it would be frustrating to have to wait for QAP every time there is a tweak.

    Maybe you guys are just talking about hubs that have never been through QAP and are still featured?

    Viewers can still see the hub. That is my understanding. Simone, correct me if I am wrong. It is listed as featured.
