Okay, the button is probably so obvious, but I can't find it. Could domeone please tell me how one goes about deleting a hub?
You must be logged into your account. Click the "my account" button and the list of all your hubs will be displayed. Click the "edit" button on the left side of the hub you want to delete and the hub will be displayed. Click the "delete" button on the top of the hub.
Hope I made it clear enough...
I don't know if it's just me but I can't see any delete button in editing mode. But if you just view the hub it's there.
This does not seem to work for the unpublished hubs. They stay there and drag your points down. I don't find a way to get rid of them.
Unpublished Hubs have no effect on your HubScore. And all you have to do is click the "delete" button found at the top of the Hub. As Haunty pointed out, you don't have to be in edit mode or do anything special to find this button, you just view your own Hub and it's there in between "stats" and "start a new hub."
Once you hit the delete button, it will be 24 hours before the Hub is gone from your dashboard. So you have that long to go back and change your mind. But once it's gone, it's gone.
I had no idea about deleting a hub. Any way thanks for this useful information.
Sorry, I didn't explain myself well, but still I had my answer.
I did delete a hub and it stayed there ... now I know it's for 24 hours.
One thing I noticed is that when I tried to delete the hub, I was opening it by clicking "edit" in My Account. This for some reason didn't open the "delete" fonction. What did it was to click directly on the hub's name. Then I found "edit, delete" etc.
By the way, Angel of Love, what I was deleting was just a draft, the true hub got published, go pay me a visit!
Thank you all for the tips, I'll try not to forget next time.
there is Edit Stats Delete tab at the top of the hub like this
THIS HUB: edit STATS delete TOOLS: start a new hub
you just click delete
it will get deleted instantly and if you want to restore it, you can do it within 24 hrs. of deleting
i think there is a better option of unpublish the published hub than deleting it

I just recently went through my many hubs and came to realize that almost every hub I did involving youtube videos had broken links. So I went to go fix the links only to find that these hubs were lame. I...

Some people say you should never, ever delete a hub...only edit it and such. What makes you just completely trash your own hubs?

I have a quick question. If I unpublish a hub, does Google "see" that it's still sitting in my account and thus punish me for it, or should I be totally deleting hubs that I decide are not garnering...

How many times do you edit an idled Hub before deleting it? Or do you keep it idled so that links to it are still good? Also, for what reasons do you either leave it idled or delete it or still try to fix it? I have one...
