@HP Let's Fix This.

    No reason the damage has to be permanent.

    Bring them back, I can't.

    Ashamed how a certain editor killed my 12-hub matrix. Most specifications were fine, but one demand would have immediately cut my traffic in half. Then AdSense tells me that particular network site was not earning crap at current levels anyway. What with those 12  being high maintenance (required frequent updates), I gave up and deleted.

    Then HP comes up with EBDA. Right now, as I post this, HP is still doing triple digit 404's on those 12 hubs, courtesy of Pinterest.

    Freaking costing us both a fortune.

    Go to your backups and put them back. Please.

    This will not go away.

    Er - you're the one who deleted them, and you expect HubPages to fix it?

    A lesson for next time. Never delete, just unpublish.  Always safer.

      Do not fck with me on this.

      I know forum rules do not allow me to defend myself, so there will be no other response from me going forward other than "This will not go away."

        Email them, dude. This has nothing to do with the rest of us.

      Can you explain the difference to me?  I thought that if you unpublish, after a short time the hub disappears anyhow.  Am I wrong?

        If you "unpublish" them, the hubs will still exist -- you'll see them on your account page, but they won't appear on your profile for others to view.

        If you click "delete" instead of "unpublish" then they're gone for good

    As far as I know, you can keep an unpublished hub forever, as long as you don't delete it. I'd usually just save all the wroting and images so o could recreate it if I wanted to.
