I update and edit my own Hubs all the time. I proofread, remove and/or write new text, change or add images and videos and evaluate product choices. Typically it takes 15 or 20 minutes, but even the most extensive cases rarely take more than an hour.
It seems reasonable that our professional editors here at HP should be able to work even quicker. Yet, for some inexplicable reason, they sometimes begin editing a Hub, then leave it locked for several days until they (eventually) come back and finish. This is akin to a contractor tearing up your kitchen floor and then disappearing for three weeks, leaving you with an unusable and inaccessible kitchen.
My suggestion is that editors have a fixed time limit once they begin working on a Hub. I think a couple of hours is appropriate. The Hub then reverts back to the author whether the editor is done or not. If the editors do not think they can complete the work in that time period they shouldn't begin the edit until they have enough time to do it properly.
This seems like a fair thing to ask for and I hope HP seriously considers this suggestion.
I didn't understand hubs getting locked up. You mean the hubs are not accessible for viewers? I never experienced any such kind of experience till now. I hope my articles are also being got edited. There are many hub pro signs over them. But not got locked up.
By locked I mean you are unable to make changes to your own Hub while an editor is working on it. Readers are still able to see it.
This will not happen. I had the editing bar at the top of my dashboard for well over a month for a single hub. They don't understand that we may find lack of access to our editing tools inconvenient or that we may wish to be responsive and add content to our hubs in a timely manner when big news occurs.

This is getting silly. The last few Hubs I updated had all links to other Hubs snipped, even though these links were (a) on the same topic (b) helpful to the reader and (c) pointing to the same niche site. I really try...

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...

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...

I've just sent some hours reading the feedback on hubpro editors as I received an email saying that I had been selected for hubpro. I also read the blurb of one of the editors that had been posted to the thread. Lady...

I respect the work of many hubbers, but at the very top of my list is 'peeples'. I am a great fan of this extraordinary woman and when you go to her profile page you will see why. Peeples is now homeless. Follow this...
