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.

I've just received an email announcing that I have been invited to participate in HubPro Premium. I'm a bit taken aback and more than a little leery. I'm taken aback because I have been one of those fortunate ones whose hubs are moved automatically after publication to the niche sites...

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 to understand why Amazon links are removed, and I get why links to other sites...

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...

So apparently an editor decided to go berserk on seven of my Hubs today, but I did not receive a single email notifying me of the many changes they made. The only way I noticed was by looking at my account and seeing the little red notices next to each Hub. Why no notification?The editor also...

When Pulitzer winner Bob Woodward writes a major article at the Washington Post, the article does not get edited by a 22-year-old just out of college. It gets edited by the best editors on the staff.When a young and inexperienced reporter does an article about a neighborhood festival, it usually...
