Are we all subject hub pro edits now? I had opted out earlier, and it looks like edits are being made to my poetry hubs now--can anyone shed light on this?
I cannot imagine anyone touching your poetry, Audrey. Sacrilegious.
I'd be interested to know what type of changes they are making to your poetry hubs.
Yes we are all subject to edits now, because the future of HubPages lies primarily in its niche sites.
If one of your Hubs is marked for HubPro, then it is being edited because they think it is good enough to move to one of the niche sites (only the best are moved).
I welcome edits to some hubs but would not be happy with edits to poems
I doubt that editors would edit the wording of poems.
They will do things like change the formatting (formatting of poems is a problem of HubPages as the standard paragraph formats aren't ideal for poetry), change the photos, and delete Amazon capsules which by nature can't meet the new criteria (since it's very unlikely the poem is explaining why you should buy the product!!).
Many Hubber poets also include an introduction or postcript to their poem, because a Hub which consists of just a poem is rarely successful with Google (Cardisa wrote an excellent Hub about how to "dress up" a poem to make it more attractive to the search engines). So the editor may well make some edits on that section too.

Now, I see what Hubpro is. One of my hubs was marked a couple of days ago. Having been "absent" in hubpages for more than a year, HubPro is a new term for me.

I just had a nightmare experience with HubPro. Worst was that they published their changes before I had a chance to see them. I submitted my most popular garden pest hub to Dengarden. All of my garden pest hubs are written in an idiosyncratic style that is a reflection of my...

Everybody is wondering how the team plans to remove the editbots from the stats pages. Apparently they are there to indicate that edits have been made so that writers can check their articles for correctness, but there are many questions about when and if they will be removed as there seems...

I have thought for some time that it would be a good idea to place edited hubs back on the feed. If they are going to be judged again, why not let them be seen again in their updated forms? This would give people more opportunities to get views (and maybe referral to social media)...

What are your thoughts about your hubs being eligible to be edited with Hub Pro?When we edit a profile on HubPages, when you scroll down you see an option to check yes or no to possible editing with Hub Pro. I was wondering what people think of this option, and do you recommend it?

It seems Editbot is at work again. Had several little fixes, almost all in comments.
