    I have had my Hubs posted for at least 5 months now. I wrote six of them and out of the six, five were labeled as "Featured". Then yesterday I get an email saying that my one Hub "What should we be called?", is no longer going to be published unless it was revised. It didn't give any other reason than that. I then went on the site and looked at my hubs and found that none of them were listed as featured any longer. I am confused ... what prompted them to retract the "featured" qualification on all my hubs and unpublish that particular one after all this time? I don't see what the problem was with it and I don't see any place that I can directly correspond with those in charge. Can anyone help me out here?

      You can always email the although I believe they are now encouraging you to use the link they provide when they leave a message on your hub in order to email them (I think) as there was something said about it by a staff member on the forums a few days back.

      First, look at your Account page and note what symbol is showing next to the unFeatured Hubs.

      If a Hub has a white circle, that means it has been put through the QAP and failed.  The QAP is a new process, and they have only recently started putting older Hubs through it.  Failing the QAP means that your Hub needs some work.   

      If the Hub has a half-moon symbol (half white, half black) then your Hub is probably fine, but it's just not getting enough traffic.   That could be for several reasons - it may be related to quality, but it could also be because it's an obscure subject that not many people are searching for.   

      Either way, the best plan is to post a link to it in the "Improving Your Hub" section and other Hubbers will give you some pointers.

      I suggest you also edit your profile - scroll down to the bottom where you'll see an option to "show only Featured Hubs on my profile".  Select "No".

      That way, all Hubs will show on your proflie, unFeatured and Featured, so Hubbers will be able to see them and offer some helpful advice.

    Currently none of your hubs seemed to be featured. Hubs with warnings give more detailed reasons at the top, click link for details.

      When there is an issue that has been identified with a hub, there will be a message that will tell you what the issue is.  Simply go to the hub and click on the edit button.  At the top of the page, there will be a message that shows what the problem is.  Usually, there is also a link where you can get additional information.

      I hope you can get your hubs featured again with some minor edits.

        If you look at the bottom of the stats page you will see icons that tell you whether a hub has been unfeatured for traffic or for quality.  If it is quality, you need to read the rules in the learning center and make changes as necessary to improve your hub.  If it is for traffic, you have no control over that problem unless you want to seriously enhance the hub, change the general topic, etc.

          Oops, Timetraveler2 is right.  Your hubs are published, just not featured. Looking at the hub won't help, the stats My Accounts page will.
