I was tweaking some hubs today and edited one that was an Editors Choice when I noticed later that the icon was gone!
What have I done!?
I have the same problem and it involves doing some side notes on my only EC hub. Apparently, leaving that side note (before I deleted whatever it was) killed my EC hub (A Civil War History Hub) and it went back to my subdomain. I was disappointed when I lost it but since I never really had any hits to begin with, not too disappointed. I'm glad it's worthy of such an honor but to lose it without notice or reason kind of sucks.
The only thing I can think of is that it could possibly be under review after editing. IDK. I'm still kind of sad about mine.
Why not try asking HP staff to reinstate your EC designation on those Hubs? That might work: contact Team@hubpages.com
Repeatedly changing the URL of a webpage is not a good idea. The 301 redirect used to change it to an EC Hub the first time should have been a permanent change, but the EC program is not permanent. That's just one of the reasons I opted out. Obviously the EC program was of absolutely no benefit to your Hub. If I were you, I'd just leave it alone now that it's back on your subdomain.

Hi Matt. When HP moved all subdomains back to the main domain, I expected EC banners would be restored to hubs that previously held them (before choosing to opt out of EC and keep all hubs within subdomains.) So far, no...

I make it a habit to count my EC hubs just to make sure none have gone missing. (OCD) This morning I was surprised to see one of mine lost its designation overnight. There were no edits to it and it still has the same...

Overnight all my EC hub labels have dropped off my account page including the one that was spotlighted last week. What has happened? Is there a reason?

Hi Folks,I started around a year ago on Hubpages, but then took a bit of a break due to emigrating overseas (I'm now a Brit living in the US.) Anyway, whilst I was gone, 'Editor's Choice' hubs were introduced.My...
