Author Status were the ratings like "Expert", "All-star", "Elite", and "Prodigy", based on number of Hubs published and HubRank.
The only mention I could find of Author Status in the forums is here:
Since it no longer appears with the profile info, but it is still documented in Help, where does it appear, or does it? And if it doesn't, should reference to it be eliminated from Help?
that feature has been gone for quite a while now...6 months maybe? Your right should be removed from FAQs
I didn't notice that it was gone-- I never thought it was very important, except when I first started. I was eager to get to 20 hubs to be an"expert". (I still don't know what I'm expert in.) Yes, it should be eliminated from mention in FAQ's.
Glad I'm not the only one who's a bit puzzled...still wondering if that Author Status appears somewhere here, hidden perhaps (giving the benefit of the doubt to HP being current with Help/FAQs)?
I thought it was the same as the author score - isn't that the number on your thumbnail?
You bring up a good point. That little number is your HubRank, according to HP Help, but it's called a lot of other things too, like Profile Score or Author Score or Hubber Score.
Author Status is different. It's a calculated score based on the number of Hubs you've published and the value of your HubRank.

Could HubPages please answer this question?1. When a Hub is "expert reviewed", does the author receive a notification?2. What is the process if the author has concerns about the expert review?

I am starting this suggestion here in hopes that staff will see it. Many of us have suddenly found large numbers of our hubs unfeatured for quality within the past 24 hours. Myself it has his 17 of my 221 hubs in my...

I've been on HubPages for over a year now. I have written 253 hubs (I deleted some) and just recently passed the 100,000 views mark. I think I should have more views by now considering the number of hubs and...
