What is so special about a hub being featured if said status is considered a basic standard?
In most (or all other!) contexts, being featured about or for something indicates an extraordinary achievement or quality of craft. Why, then am I catching whisps of "only 10% of your hubs are featured". And why should one suffer severe or punitive consequences of "only 10%" or "only 15%" of ones hubs are featured.
What does this mean? What is this, Kindergarten where "everybody wins and gets a blue sticker! Yay for you!".
Being featured should mean something. And the average hubber should not suffer artificial knock down because some "new and improved" algorithm has commanded it so!
It sort of is like kindergarten in that way. Having your hub be featured is really just having it meet the minimum standard as you have said. It's not special, just ordinary.
The thing is, the ones that are not featured either didn't meet the quality standards or they are not getting traffic. So, they are not considered good enough, by HP standards, to be ordinary (featured).
When I see that my Hubs are featured, I see it as "YAY, YOU'RE NOT WRITING CRAP!!" I'd like to see the stats on how many Hubs get rejected, there's a lot of spam out there.
I recently became aware of the "feature" scenario and must admit when I realized that about 1/4 of mine were not "feature" quality, I didn't feel so great but then I took another look and decided to take a few hubs a day and rework them.
Afterall, some things had changed and could be updated and I had some new experiences since initially writing them and were able to update them and I must say "all" of them, that I updated, have received the blessed "H" next to them.

Today I find two hubs have gone unfeatured for lack of engagement - the half circle symbol. This seems odd as the 30 day traffic is 78 and 89, they have 48 and 82 comments and score 83 and 100 respectively. Has there been a change I'm unaware of? Anyone else getting unexpected...

For those who are no newbie to HUB Pages you probably share the same frustrations of working for hours on a hub only to be insulted with the friendly heads up message sending you back to a tutorial about writing rich content hubs. It's like were playing some type of hide and seek game to find...

Now that HP has professional editors, I think it would be a good idea to have the editors review the HOTD before it is featured. The HOTD is a showcase not only for the hubber, but for all of HubPages. A person new to HP might think that getting it right is not very important. I make...

A moderator snipped my page, which was doing well, despite not being featured. I pulled the article, because my Amazon capsule was removed. Presumably that means I make less from the article? Plus, is there a way to let the moderator know I don't want my page snipped?
