    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.

        No these are too close together for that to be happening. The emails with one published and one not are right together. The next time I see one I will compare the two and make notes of the time line.

    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they could read it and even after doing it twice...I just heard from a neighbor today that it appeared as if it was unpublished so I will send it again and hope that the 3rd time is the charm.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"The Lone Sentinel" was published, and was up long enough to receive one comment....then I got an email saying it was 'unpublished' due to duplification...which was Bill's introduction.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 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!
