    You may have noticed some Hubs have become featured.  We are continuing to tweak this system so that it has less impact on the best Hubbers. 

    Our hope is to have additional Hubs become featured as we continually refine the system.

      I guess I haven't noticed since I have had all my hubs featured for a couple months now.

      Paul, since we are on the topic. How about showing a percentage for featured hubs instead of the count - 5, 10, 15, 20 etc. For instance my accolade would show 100% featured instead of 100 since I have 175 published hubs.

        Just to clarify, are we talking 'featured' or "Editor's Choice'?

          I think he means featured hubs but I hope he does clarify to be sure.

        I like your idea Cardisa. All my hubs are featured also, so I'd get a "100% featured" accolade too (if it existed).

        That seems very reasonable and I like the idea!

      Thanks for the news and the action to feature additonal numbers of Hubs! Keeping so many updated is like performing the trick of spinning plates on top of sticks in the circus along a v-e-r-y l-o-n-g line, but I still update as many as possible.

      Good news is always welcomed.

      Yeah, all my previously unfeatured hubs are active again.

      Pity I'd already unpublished 100 or so of them.

      So, your little experiment didn't work. but caused us authors a lot of grief meanwhile.

      What is your next bright idea?

      By the way, I never had a Google penalty on my account, and still don't.

      I was one of those who lost traffic, and still don't know why.

        All my hubs are featured, but I have noticed an upswing in my traffic this week. It's slow, and not what it once was, but enough that I feel hopeful. I opted out of the EC for a time, because I was getting less views when I had some hubs that were chosen. I may change my mind as I see how it's going for others.

      I've only had one hub go un-featured, a quick edit, a tweak and another picture - hey presto, back to featured.

    Great idea. All my hubs are featured, and that makes me very happy - for now anyway. Hope it keeps up. Now, add more traffic, Google and social sites.

    Nearly all my hubs are now featured, much appreciated.
    And views are up too.
