    Okay,

    Can a hub be cancelled?  Also, when we write about a topic...are we to start a new hub for this new topic that we are writing about? 

    Thanks.

      Yes, you can delete a hub by hitting the "delete" button on it wink  Deleting is permanent, but you can also just unpublish it and save it to work on or republish later.

      You should start a new hub for every new topic or article, yes.

        So I would be able to keep this hub as is on my account until I finish it and click on "publish"?  Also, I wan't able to find the "unpublish" button. Is this under my account also?

    Yes, a hub can remain unpublished as long as you want. The "Publish Now" button in the hubtool becomes an "Unpublish Now" button after you publish a hub. So, you won't see the unpublish button until you've published the hub.

    Don't unpublished hubs lower your hub score. Which would be a real bummer if your hubscore was zero.

    Actually, letting an unpublished hub sit a little bit can raise the initial score of the hub.

    Yes, but you can hold one unpublished while working on it so you can wander off to hang the laundry or mow the lawn or whatever. The hub score pops up even when it's not published. I've seen mine start out at 50, wander off, then come up 48 after I've done more work on it and publish it. So, what's up with that?

      I can't answer why the hub score went from 50 to 48 but I just want to say thank you for your answer.

    Well, I've been here for 5 months and still don't quite get a lot. Which is probably for the best. Soon as I seem to really understand something, I move on to something else. But I so enjoy the Hubpages, I guess you never really learn enough.
