If we publish a collection of our hubs as a book of essays, do Hubpages rules require us to retire the hubs, since they are published elsewhere? Or is it just online publication that they would frown on?
mostly online publication if it is print media i don't really think it will affect your hub score
The HubScore algorithm is very complicated and quite advanced. You probably don't realise it but the bots that HubPages sends out actually enter your house in the middle of the night and scan your bookshelves and any pieces of paper lying around your desk, especially near your printer. They report back to HP HQ and if they've got evidence of anything printed you're going to drop about 10 HubScore points and most times you won't even know why.
It's fine. I can't imagine them having a problem with it at all. If you however submit it as an assignment for a class you may run into trouble with the class lecturer/teacher/trainer who discovers it's already published online and you could get into trouble for plagiarism if they don't realise that it was you who wrote the original.

and they also report whether you wash your hands before having dinner to your local health officials, whether you did your math homework (when applicable), and how often you watch reality shows.

I received an email that a new Hub is "eligible" for a niche site. But it suggests I need to proofread it before it can move over. I edited the article for readability and ran it through a spelling and grammar checker before I published it. After receiving the email, I reread it and ran...

I am sort of disappointed. I try to be active in the site as much as possible, comment on other people's hubs, help out in the forums, add new hubs once every two weeks, participate in the question and answer and my hubscore is slowly decreasing. Any advice from expert Hubbers on how to...

This really isn't a problem, but rather something I am interested in finding out. I have a few unpublished hubs with little to no content in them, and the thing is, one of these hubs outranks one of my published hubs! I am wondering why that happens and if it is any indication of how good the hub...
