Several times lately I have clicked on a hub saying it is no longer published and then I see that hub notice again and click on it and it is published. So why did one say it wasn't? I just can't think this should be happening so often and wonder how it is happening?
I think the hubber had to do some tweaking to their hub before HP would feature it, and so later on is why it shows up published after the necessary tweaking was done to be featured.
I do hope HP starts sending out a new email notification after the hub is featured again so that all know of it and can now read it because it doesn't seem fair not to let everyone know it is now published.
On my latest hub I emailed a link of it to several friends in order that they could read it and even after doing it twice...I just heard from a neighbor today that it appeared as if it was unpublished so I will send it again and hope that the 3rd time is the charm. Must be a recent glitch of some sort.
Oh really. That is strange and not good, Peggy! If that is what is happening, then it must be another HP glitch.
Yes that is what I mean Peggy; I am sure this is just a false email being so close to the publishing and there must be something causing it. I hope others have noticed it too and have an answer.
Jackie, I had trouble with my hub in response to billybuc's challenge "The Lone Sentinel"...it was published, and was up long enough to receive one comment....then I got an email saying it was 'unpublished' due to duplification...which was Bill's introduction. Then I had to change that but it was Friday night and a long weekend...it took until Tuesday to get it back up as published, then I was hit with it being "unfeatured" because it was "spammy"...I only had two product ads but one was for an anthology that I have a story published in so I guess they thought it wasn't relevent to the topic. I removed that and it was featured.
Jodah, you bring up a point I have thought about. When we take up a challenge, I can see how it would be "a duplicate", in part at least. If you copied Bill's introduction, that would be a duplication, I think. I get confused because I read Hubs that has poems or songs copied verbatim!

I never thought I would ask that but having just looked at the large number of hubs now classified as Idle in my account why should I write any more, and what am I do with all of those already here? A lot of them are good quality writings I know because they had previously been published in hard...

I am being challenged. I have been having a problem getting a new hub to be featured. It has gone through QAP three times already. It is a new day, and I am feeling up to the challenge once again. Rested and refreshed after a good nights sleep, with a hopeful heart. So! Now, the hub will be going...

What do we do when hub tweaking is no longer possible?So we get the dreaded Zzzzz’s showing next to a hub and we’ve tweaked and polished, honed and rebuilt over and over again. Just what do we do when there are simply no more amendments or improvements we can make to a hub?

Hi folks, I wondered if you could help at all? I am scratching my head at the moment about this, wondering why it is happening.Whilst I know that Hub scores do go up and down, I have Hubs that were rated in the 90s that are now in the 70s. In particular, an "Editor's Choice" Hub about a...

Is it a wise move to delete published Hubs that are not Featured?
