    Can one-liners be adjudged as hubs?

    The epigram is a time-honored form, but it has very few really outstanding practitioners -- Epicurus, Ben Jonson, Oscar Wilde....

    Although I don't think there should be any up/down, yes/no, black/white criteria for judging hubs, I do think a one-liner is likely to be flagged and in most cases probably should be.

    Having said that, I must add that I've never seen a one-liner.

    A one-liner could make for a good introduction, and then you can elaborate on it with 500 to 1000 words of something useful that you can say about it.

    In addition to what's already been said, search engines would rank one sentence hubs very low or skip them altogether.

    There's always the danger that another user or staff might flag it as substandard.  But, there's no harm in trying it once to see if it stays up.

    According to my experience, one-liners are useless as hubs. A hub is just like an article or a blog post so it should be least 500 words plus. Though it is okay to use that one-liner that you have in your mind as the title of your hub.
