Authorscore/hubberscore and individual hubscore are different things. It's little confusing to see the same caption for both. When we hoover the mouse around profile pics' score and hubs' score it shows hubscore in both case. Many a newbies become confused with it. Better fixing it?
That's indeed confusing. It would be better if HubPages defined consistent terminology and used it throughout the site. We could refer to HubScore and AuthorScore for example. We have to use different words because the numbers don't mean the same thing.
It is already being referred to as HubScore and HubberScore (AKA AuthorScore AKA User Score).
It is not, that's what saleheensblog is saying. If you hover your mouse over the number near your profile photo, it says hubscore, not something like HubberScore or AuthorScore.
When I wrote the hub HubScore almost 3 years ago there was mentions of Hubber Score, Author Score and User Score (all being the same thing) in the FAQs. Which was revamped in the last 6 to 12 months.
A year and a half later I wrote one on HubberScore.
Not sure if the the mouseover the profile hubberscore has always been there as hubscore. But there has always been two different meanings for both sets of scores.

Hello All,I joined this community only couple of days back and I'm still going over the help pages. One thing which throws me off is my hubber score. While it is not in the 90's, a hubber score of 54 with NO hubs seems to be confusing. How is this possible? I'm able to understand the huscore-...

I just feel that the Hubscore/Hubberscore system should be obsolete and rendered useless and be replaced with a new system. This Hubscore/Hubberscore business is keeping everything apart. Instead, we should have a rating system, with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. So 5-star articles,...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...
