What is the red exclamation mark beside my hubs?
I logged in today and a handful of my hubs have the green circle with a pencil in and a red exclamation mark beside them. What is the exclamation mark there for?
I will guess that you are referring to the green colored pencil icon that looks like it has been followed by a superscripted little red exclamation mark.
If so, that appears to be an indicator that your article has been edited by HubPages with changes made. You can click on the green pencil with the little red exclamation mark and it will open a page that allows you to view changes. The changes will show as red and green highlights to the changed areas.
If that mark is not what you are referring to, then
I had about a dozen changes made in the last few days, mostly edits to the comments area. Only one was to the text of the Hub article itself, and it deleted a full section. I was ok with the editor pulling that section out, as it held dialogue meant only for the editing staff anyway.
All the other changes were to comments that had been added after the article was written. They corrected bad spellings that we have no control over editing for spelling correctness anyway. This has been a long time concern for those who have concerns about “bad marks” against their writing because of poorly worded comments. Only one of the current set of corrections was a bad correction, so overall the editing effort improves the HubPages environment, at least for those who hold grammar and spelling as a valued quality of a good environment.

Apologies if this is not the right place to ask (?) - but I received an email re my latest hub being 'snipped' - and, the article shows under my account with a Hubpro icon and red exclamation mark. On checking I see that all the edits were removal of images. Anyway, I think the red...

Can someone please help me? I've seen some really sub quality hubs out here. I write well and yet my hubs are being unpublished and continuously picked on for sub quality. I'm offended. You're making it not fun to be a hubber. http://vivbounty.hubpages.com/hub/firew … -plus-help

I'd like to suggest that "normal" Hubs should have an exclamation mark next to them on our account page.I think there's a very high risk that new Hubbers will misunderstand the normal/Featured system. I've already answered one enquiry from a Hubber who has misunderstood it.He...

Happy Thursday, everyone! In August we pre-announced a new tool that fixes common spelling and grammatical errors across the site. Today, Editbot, the first iteration of the tool, is live on a small percentage of Hubs and their comments. It will be gradually rolled out to all Hubs over the next...

Mine went horrible. They erased some of my facts, added new (false) ones in, added ugly photos, removed some of my polls, and now I'm going to have to spend my Sunday rewriting all my hubs they ruined. Sure, they helped somewhat but I probably would have been better off if they didn't do anything...
