How important is it to update the information (text) on our profile pages? Does that do...
anything positive for our hubs?
I believe that updating the information text, when something changes especially, provides up to date information on ourselves as well as an indication that the page is current and active.

No update on the stats in 32 hours. Yesterday my Hubber Profile score dropped a point and when I signed in this morning it had dropped another point. My hub score has rapidly dropped 2 points. Is there a connection between the stats not updating and my Hubber score? Seems like a pretty rapid...

I don't have a lot of hubs, but I'm finding myself updating them every few weeks with new content. Who else is updating their hubs and who isn't? If you don't, do you create a new hub and compile them into a single group?

Just curious if people go back and edit their hubs after they first put them up. While I don't think you should publish incomplete hubs, I thought it would be better to get it up and running and going back later to add to it.I haven't seen anything that encourages people to keep adding to...
