    I just noted from yesterday that all my hubs have disappeared and my score has gone down. I have been posting hubs for 2 months and I havent seen any email from hub pages about my hubs not conforming with HubPages standards.

    But just now i noted that when i go to my account.I see the following comments on all the hubs"Substandard Quality: This Hub does not conform to the HubPages community standard of quality". Why would all my hubs become substandard yet i have heard most of the hubs for 2 months now and some people was commended me for the hubs.Is there a way to challenging this statement or how can i get hubs published again and my score back to normal? I dont seem to be getting anywhere trying to contact teamhub-----can someone help?

    I would trust the team at hubpages. They have always responded when needed. I have been here a year now, and not once have they ignored any problem.Perhaps they have a software glitch. If your hubs conforms to the terms of service, I feel sure they will be OK and the problem temporary.

    The admin team is not 24/7.  They go home at night and on weekends.  But if you email them directly, they really do read and respond.

    And just in case anyone isn't clear on what "substandard" means, here's the guidelines

    If they've been unpublished as substandard, there's a good reason.  Read the link Relache has posted.  Then revise your Hubs so they meet the right criteria, and you'll be able to republish them.

    Not that "fan #" is a perfect indicator, but the two of you that mentioned this problem have 4 and 8 fans respectively.

    With most of them being "fammers" that I recognize.

    Without seeing a single hub, I would think were some serious issues with the content quality of your hubs

    If you are referring to comments like "this hub is great, keep it up" ..well sorry, thats just poorly informed marketers trying to build their exposure

    Im sure hubpages team will get back to you, but I wouldnt be surprised if some editing is in order
