What's up with the 24 hours pending hubs?
Every time I turn around Hub Pages is making new changes. What is the benefit of this new nonsens?
I think they are trying to determine if the hub is "good enough" to be indexed off site or not.
In other words, they seem to have definitely determined that a lot of things published here are not worthy of indexing, and may negatively affect the site.
Things like new hubs pending for 24 hours seem to be the norm since the hub pages started the idled hub program. It's just something that we all have to live with now. If you need a quick fix for your other idled hubs then I have just what the doctor ordered for you - http://goody5.hubpages.com/hub/Quick-fi … led-status Keep on hubbing
We can still tweet, Google Plus and otherwise market our articles while we wait.
We "have to" live with a lot of nonsense from the everchanging rules of HP.
The idle idea is again hurting creative writing and HP could not care less since the money is not there. Being able to time the publication of a hub makes a lot of difference
It sounds like a good way to weed out the B.S. artists and low-quality crap Hubs, so I'm all for it.
I don't have idled hubs, but I do have one that has been pending for over thirty hours.
I am up for this knowing how many so-called writers are stealing other people's articles. HP obviously doesn't want any of those here. A great idea to get rid of them. It is a benefit to this good writing site.

There is a lot of anger and/or frustration relating to the 'pending' system and most of it is down to the fact that it's not clear why there are exceptions - this is justified and there should be open-ness. (Note this...
