Should you ever delete your hubs?
Is there ever a time you should delete one of your hubs, or should you just add to things you've written and not take away? Is there a benefit either way?
I always try to add to, to revise and make better. Maybe that's just me. I don't like to get rid of things I've created. See what others say.... Interesting topic.
I have unpublished a few of my hubs, but never could bring myself to delete any. I just can't seem to part with them. Others I have unpublished, edited, and published again.
I had to delete one hub when i was very new here and it had some violations. Yesterday night, i unpublished one of my hubs but i don't think i will delete it- AM just doing some editing and i will republish it again
No real reason to delete unless for some reason you do not feel the hub is of you standards aside from getting a violation and having to remove it just keep revising and updating to keep your hubs current and up to date or focus else where but no real benefit to nuke them.
I deleted one of my first Hubs. It had violated the rule of having duplicate content. It was my own piece of work though, published somewhere else, saved on my computer. I didn't realize it at first, took it down and then deleted it.
That way I didn't lose my piece of work for real and other Hubs I always try to improve. Deleting a Hub in general, is a drastic measure. I would do so if there's no other way of improving.

I started writing a hub a week ago, and decided to delete it. I deleted it about 4 or 5 days ago, but it is still showing up. Usually, they disappear after a day or so, but this one is still there. Is...

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...
