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

For the first time since writing at HP, I have had an email saying that a Hub cannot be featured because it has "spammy elements." The email goes on to say that it could be that an ad is not related to the topic. I have only got one amazon capsule on the Hub in question (which I have now...

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 see if that would do the trick. No success. It really would be nice if the...

I have been thinking about how I can give some of my hubs that receive less traffic more light. On our profiles, we can pick a bunch of hubs that feature in a "gallery" that fades in and out, right under our bios and above the published hubs listed in the bottom section. This year, my...
