    If I make a Hub and then save it unpublished does it damage my Hub score?

    Let's say I wanted to set them up as a way to remember the titles I want to use for the idea.  Can I have a bunch of hubs outstanding without hurint my score?

    To be honest I have wondered this as well as it seems to have damaged mine on more than one occasion.

    Whenever I've done it, mine has dipped for a short time, then gone back up again. I currently have 2 unpublished hubs waiting in the wings, but my current score is 93,w hich is higher than it was last week when I first created them so I wouldn't worry about it.

    No, not at all, what I usually do instead of staring your hubs in hubpages, start a bunch of titles in MS Word, then just keep adding to them. When you gather enough keywords and information just write you hubs in a word doc then copy and paste it in to hub pages. I have several hubs just started sitting in MS Word.

    I have wondered this myself, so it'll be good to get some views on the subject. I think, even if it does damage the score the effect is minimal.

    The only things that affect your hubscore are not gaining traffic to your hubs, not communicating enough on hubpages, not being active here, pretty much any form of inactivity causes your hubscore to go down rapidly. The direct opposite will occur for being highly active, and this is what I've experienced thus far in my short 4 months on here.
    The number one indicator to me though other than all those things is when you fully publish your hub, this is when the numbers game gets kind of topsy turby. 
    I've shot from a 97 hub score at the start of the day, and at the end I was at 93, after fully publishing 5 hubs in a single day.  So just realize that your playing with an algorithm here, that is averaging out every bit of digitized inputs and outputs that your profile is responsible for generating, including search engine ratings and or statistics.  So no unpublished hubs have a zero factor

    From my experience there does seem to be a slight decrease in the "Grand Total" of all of your hub scores on your account screen, but over all I wouldn't worry that much about it if I was you. If you are going to publish that hub, then leave it be. If you are not planning on using that hub, then maybe you might want to consider deleting it.
