Have you experience the new 'Snip Editing' feature, yet? My experience resulted in a fiasco.
Hubpages introduced yet another new 'feature' a while ago that is supposedly meant to improve the writing quality for hubs that were unfeatured or 'close' to being featured so that they COULD be featured: http://blog.hubpages.com/2015/12/14/new … ty-alerts/
They just 'snipped' my BEST hub that made the MOST money - and it has not only been featured since it was published two years ago; but it was an EDITOR'S CHOICE hub that was not even SORT of in danger of being 'unfeatured'. Now I get to fix it all.
What has your experience been like?
A couple of mine have been "snipped' but all they did was cut a bunch of extra Amazon capsules. I had a bad habit early on of over-stuffing my Hubs with Amazon boxes, but I've been too lazy to go back and fix them all since they tightened up those regulations, soooo... hey, if they wanna do that to all of my Hubs, I say go nuts, it'll save me the time and trouble.
Mine was a semi-long, already-evergreen hub - they deleted four non-promotional links to more information; and 3 amazon capsules - leaving one. It did not sound like these were the types of hubs to be snipped or what this 'service' was created for.
I have had Amazon capsules snipped. My Amazon revenue used to be 1/2 to 3/4 of my income. Now it is almost zero.
However, if HP thinks it is necessary for the survival of the site -- I would rather that they survive.
I would, too - but again, Editor's Choice and Evergreen Hubs were not what they talked about 'snipping'. They have a 'warning' in the processor that pops up when you have too many products - I did not re-add all the ones deleted, maybe 4 was too much

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...

What are the number of Amazon links that are permitted now? I have been replacing the Amazon capsules with links.

For some unspecified reason, HubPages has chosen not to feature what I believe to be one of the bestHubs I have written. After learning that HubPages was not going to feature it without editing, I added a poll to...
