    Wanted to let you know that 12 of my WIP Lenses did not survive the transfer. They are not listed as Hubs on my account page. Not a huge deal but wanted you to know. So far everything else looks great! Thanks.

      I'm missing all of my WiP lenses as well - I reported it (and have backups if needed). All of my imports are showing as Featured for now...still standing by!

        So, we believe we've imported all the missing WIP lenses now, except that we excluded draft lenses that were untitled.  Without a title we can not pick a meaningful URL, and 99% of the untitled lenses we looked at were empty anyway.  Please let us know if there are any additional problems.

        Thanks NateB11.  We are indeed looking into the issue with WIP lenses.  I'm confident we'll be able to resolve it sometime tomorrow.

      So, we are following up with the Squidoo engineers to be sure it's correct, but I do see 56 featured lesnes and 3 WIP lenses in your export.  The three WIP ones are here, as unpublished hubs:

      http://sarahswitalski.hubpages.com/hub/ … r-treating
      http://sarahswitalski.hubpages.com/hub/ … -from-home

      My best guess right now is that the other lenses that you remember were locked and not WIP.

        Thanks Paul. The missing ones were not locked. But, I have realized that they were truly WIP because they were never completed and never published on Squidoo. The 3 that did come over were published at one point but had fallen into WIP due to lack of traffic. So, that might be the problem since Squidoo calls unpublished lenses WIP just like the poorly performing lenses. Maybe these unpublished ones were never meant to come over. Not a big deal, if that's the case since I have my work on them saved. Thanks for looking into it!

          I think maybe you've gotten to the bottom of it.  We'll confer with the Squidoo team and try and figure out the right thing to do with draft lenses.
