Can a hub get a "beta" or "RC" stage where it can be reviewed by a limited group of hubbers before actual publication? Or is that redundant and unnecessary?
The assumption is that real hubbers (instead of spammers) would want some private feedback from hub veterans instead of jumping straight in. Often, the first hubs are too short or slapped with various moderator alerts.
Some sort of "peer review" will give the hubbers proper feedback before they got slapped. Thus potentially less devastating to their ego.
Of course, we'll have to define what is a "hub veteran". Number of hubs? Hub score? Other?
it would keep the spammers down but it would need to be exercised with caution- many of us will look back at our initial hubs and think "oh that could be better if i wrote it now"

Hubbers (who have opted in to the feature) to receive, review, and approve/deny suggested edits to one's own Hubs. This...

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...
