Are people rating my hub before I finish editing it?

    I have no idea how the Hub rating system works. What I do know is I published a hub about 4 hours ago. I came back to it 30 minutes ago, found a sentence that didn't look right, and edited it. 5 minutes later, the hub exited the bowels of the "quality assessment process" with a score 7 points below my average. Am I right in thinking the hub was rated by someone who looked at it with the silly sentence in? Will my hub be blighted by this score forever?

    I guess I should read through my hubs a few more times before publishing them. I know hubscore doesn't really matter much, but hey, I worked hard on that! smile

      It sounds like your last edit and the QAP crossed in the wires.

      Your Hub goes through QAP every time you edit it.

      If you want a different score, just edit it again and change a single word. 
      WARNING: Your score may go up or it may go down with each edit.

        Ah, oh well. I'll probably read through it again tomorrow. Bound to see something and edit it then. Cheers for replying.

        The folks over at QAP are going to adore me. I've edited several of my hubs a dozen times in the last week, as I learn more about how things work on HP.

      Hi Thomas - So often, I publish and then find an error or think of an error. I let it go through, so it won't slow the QAP. Then, when QAP finishes, I might fix it the nest day, knowing it will go through QAP again for the edit. I don't remember ever having an error so blaring that it would affect the score that much. When I was without a word processor for awhile, I made so many errors with a new keyboard, that I must have edited it ten times when I typed it on the site. I hate typing it on the site, because the font is small. Good luck.

        As I learned just the other day, you can use CNTRL + or - to change the font size in your editing box.

      I don't believe so. If a hub is unfinished it cannot be published. You save it and finish it later. Ratings hubs before finished it to me un-fair and unprofessional.

    I don't  understand what you are asking.  We don't see QA scores!  If you are talking about the numbers next to your hub on you account page, those are hub scores and they fluctuate no matter if you leave it alone, edit it, etc. One hub could have a score of 80 today and drop to 65 tomorrow.

      Thanks. Yes, I was talking about the hub score. It's not so terrible, so I'll leave it and let it fluctuate.

        You do not know the reason for the score of the Hub but the best way to proofread is once when you write it. Then before you publish let it sit a few days and proofread again. You see things that you missed the first time.

          Thanks, yea that's a good way to do it. I find that if I publish first, I end up doing the editing quicker because of the thought that someone might be reading right now! (aghhhh), but that's not good for the old ticker.

    You can also use the Spell check tool with each text capsule. By reading each text capsules, that divides your hub into simple sentences, you should be able to detect any errors before publishing. You can also tell anyone to help you re-read for errors
