Do you keep all of your hubs even if they are not featured ?
So far, I've updated hubs that have gone un-featured, which re-features them again.I try to make them more interesting, change the title, spruce them up here and there and promote them elsewhere. However, I'm gradually starting to delete the worst of the non-performing hubs. I can always re-work them and post elsewhere or maybe work them into one of my blogs.
I am in the process of improving my hubs as well. I plan to keep them all unless some of them do not improve as far as traffic goes.
Right now all of mine are featured. I did have 4 that were not featured after the new QAP. They were recipes and I moved them to the recipe template and they are fine now.
If I could not get a hub refeatured with some tweaking, I would likely delete it and try something else.
I have two hubs that aren't featured, but they are my earliest and very rough. I keep them for now, in hopes I can edit them and turn them into better hubs. I may end up deleting them if I don't get around to it. Since it's just two, I figure it can wait.
No, I deleted one because it was a poem. I've unpublished a few and hopefully will get to those later, or I will revamp them and put them on a different site. Hubpages is leaning towards a genre of professionalism, study and how to's. It also pushes you towards a particular niche or expertise.
I'm not a doctor, or a teacher or a supermom.
I just write with heart and passion.
All of mine are featured.
I've gone back and re-worked ones that I felt needed it, and probably prevented them from losing that status. I had a few not featured, but with changes I was able to push them back to featured.
I have deleted over thirty of my hubs, and worked on the rest so most now featured and with continuous updating of the hubs it can improve your traffic
I keep them when I unpublished the non featured low scoring hubs so one day I'll fix them better but never throw away.

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

First off, my hubs are transferred from Squidoo, and I am aware of various issues there. I'd already checked and edited hubs after the transition, so this is all post transfer.What I don't understand is why some of my hubs get unfeatured after I've edited them? One even got...

http://blog.hubpages.com/2013/04/five-f … b-barrier/The new blog post that just went up today really caught my eye. The crux: "Until you have published five simultaneously-Featured Hubs, new Hubs that do not pass the Quality Assessment Process (QAP) will be unpublished rather...
