I think the header asks the question. I haven't been here for a couple of years and I just noticed all my hubs have been unpublished. I don't believe it's a quality issue, but I may have missed some kind of format change or something? Or, do they just unpublish if we aren't hubbing regularly? How do I get these re-published?
Most likely, due to your long absence, your Hubs have become unfeatured. This variation on the site didn't exist when you were last here.
You are going to have to do some reading first, and then fix up your Hubs.

Google changed almost the entire game, probably not too long after you were last here. The edits and changes you are going to have to do are doable, but seeing the benefits of the changes takes longer than it used to.
I used to write for Suite101 'til it went belly-up. The rev stream was good while it lasted. I think Panda was more than two years ago, though ... early in '11. I need a little time before I start hubbing again. I'm not sure all the relearning is worth the pennies. I have to ask myself if I really want to take this route again. I remember I liked the format and ease of use ... so maybe. Thanks again.
I changed/edited my Hubs working from former-best-performer down the list, and pruned off some of the weaker stuff. I have a leaner, meaner group of a Hubs now and they still do their thing fairly steadily.
If you read her profile page, it states that she has 0 hubs published. It is my understanding that when hubs are not featured they are still published.
I think there is something else going on here.
Funny how her profile score is only about 10 less than people who have been here for 2 years publishing hubs. I have well over 120 featured hubs, but HP can only give me a score 10 to 12 higher than an absent Hubber with 0 featured hubs. So much for that score having any validity.
If her profile setting is such that only featured Hubs are displayed, this is exactly what that would look like to us.
You probably weren't even a site member yet when she was last here.
Even if the hubs are not visible, it should still show that she has written them.
Unpublished and unfeatured are not the same thing.
Quality is often not the issue with having hubs unfeatured. The problem is usually a "lack of engagement"; HubPages-speak for not getting enough traffic. I have had some concerns about this policy, as some of my hubs that were getting dozens of organic hits per month were unfeatured for "lack of engagement", which seems unfair. In any case, you just have to make some minor changes, and your hubs should be refeatured.
Whatever the scenario, I pointed her at what she needs to work it out.
lol ... thanks all for your thoughts ... most of which is over my head. Yes, my hubs are visible in my profile, but only I can see them. They are marked unpublished. I'll have a proper read tonight. Thanks again Relache.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially...

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and...

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? ...

It appears that there has been a recent change on my profile page. Underneath the number of published hubs, there is a number of featured hubs. I do not want this to be shown. My ratio of featured hubs...

I have only ever had one featured hub before but when I checked my account today I was shocked to find I have 13 in featured hubs due to low engagement. This is proof that traffic has fallen greatly. It's not just my...
