Usually, my hubs are approved in under 4 hours. The hub I published yesterday at around 9:30 pm is still not approved and it is past 7pm. The circle is still gray, it doesn't have a score, but I had a notification that it had a comment. I went to the hub, saw the comment, and replied. I put the url into google and it worked. How did a hubber find it? What's going on?.
Also, why does an unapproved hub bounce around in the rank on my account page. It has no score so it should be on the bottom of the list. Instead I find it in a different place every time I check. My list is starting to get long and it is annoying to have to search for it.
Because you published it, it shows on the feed page of your followers. One of them probably saw it there. Also, it shows on your Profile on your Activity and as the last images you have published.
On your accounts page, you can click a column header to sort results; you can sort by Title, for instance.
If the pending sign (the gray circle) stops moving, then click on the 'Refresh' button (the open arrow) at the upper left of the title bar.
I think I may have figured out why my new hub took such a long time to be approved. It ended up with a score of 96. (I never had a score higher than 90 before.) I'm guessing that if the bots give it a high score. it gets put on hold so that a human can confirm that it is really worthy of that score. The hub had jumped to the top of my list before it even had a score. Again, I am guessing, but I think this may have happened because it already had a score and I just couldn't see it. Next time I won't get so stressed over a hub taking a long time to get a score. Thank you to everyone who helped me.
The grey circle is not moving. I don't see an open arrow. What exactly is the title bar. (And the hub is a new place in the list again.)
The computer was just rebooted and I have left the HP account page numerous times. That should refresh it, shouldn't it.
All the circles are black which means featured. The last hub I did is grey. None of them are moving. There isn't a refresh button anywhere on the page. I am on the page that begins with earnings, then shows windows to filter, and then lists the hub with stats.
Everything else is normal. The number of views and comments updates.
I figured out what you meant. I was only looking on the hub page itself. clicking the refresh button did nothing.
Thanks for your help. Everything is working normally except for this. If it is not fixed by tomorrow morning, I will contact HP staff.
If you edited the hub it probably went back to QAP. As hub scores change their sequence in your list will change.
It's really late. I meant to say I don't know WHY HP gave it a 96. Most of my hubs are in the 75-85 range. I think I figured out why hubs without a score bounce around in the ranked list of total hubs. I think they move to the position they will be in once I am able to see the score. They must have been given a score, but I can't see it yet.

As they say, "First impression always lasts", and with regards to Hubpages, we can say that "First Hub Comment, Always Lasts". We all feel nervous and excited with our first hub, thinking that it may not be read by other hubbers, or may not produce lot of traffic,...

I forgot which hub the comment was on. Do I have a way to find out which hub without going through every hub?

One of my comments was not approved by the author of the hub and so desappeared. Is this comment permanently deleted or can it be recovered? I worked several hours on this comment and it the best I have written until now. I have not made a copy and so it seems to be lost. Is there any way to...
