    Everyday, everywhere, W.E is helping people.

    It is time that that is recognized.

      I agree. And he/she always does so very patiently and nicely with never a note of condescension or irritation.

      I don't know what 'Elite' really means at HP, I never bothered trying to find out, but WE is definitely among the best.

    frogdroppingposted 6 years ago

    I remarked (yesterday) to WE about his main focus for using the forum is to offer help and advice.

    I agree with you - he's more than ready to help. And whilst he can't please everyone or know the answer to every question, he certainly tries his best smile

      You could always insert into a post (in the middle of one of your query replies) about how provident life would become if they (the asker) knitted me (Fuh Rog Dropping) a pair of good old fashioned wool mittens smile

    Yes! His help and advice is outstanding good. This is not only that he writes a lot, he HELPS with sense and sesibility; however, without pride and prejudice. ;-)

    I agree but what's the criteria for elite status wouldn't want to nominate some if they don't meet the code.

    I do agree tho W. E is quite helpful in the answers I have seen with a more than generous moderate tempo that is informational rather than bias opinion based.  Got my vote here.

    I love WE in all respects. Whyn't this one?
    The main thing is that he is all round active in hubpages.

  9. travelespresso profile image85
    travelespressoposted 6 years ago

    YES!  I support this.  WE is so very helpful, offers sound advice and is just so darned knowledgeable.  I don't know how he does it.

    WE FOR ELITE......WE FOR ELITE.......  sounds like a presidential slogan!  smile

    HubPages "Elite" is not just a status symbol.  An Elite member does one or more of the following:

    HubNuggets Team, HubGreeters Team or HubMob. 

    What WE does is not really what any of those groups do.  Perhaps he needs his own category. 

    This is what you find for "elite" in the Help section:

    "The HubPages Elite are Hubbers who go the extra mile and manage special programs we have here on HubPages, including the HubGreeters, HubNuggets Team, and the HubMob. To learn more about the HubPages Elite programs, visit our HubPages Elite page."

    There is only one Website Examiner and he is in a class of his own. If I were queen, he would become Sir Website Examiner.

    (Am I correct in assuming that WE is indeed a man?)

      I second that - WE is in a class all her own.  There are few indeed that are as helpful as she is.

      Phew.  We thanks for clarifying that - I've referred to you as he in earlier postings.  Anyway, as I said earlier, I'm amazed by the variety of questions you are able to answer.  I think you must spend much time scouring the site!

    2. frogdropping profile image85
      frogdroppingposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Please explain how you tested this. As you know - any/all claims on the HubPages forum have to be substantiated. Nothing less that relevant, tried and tested proof will be acceptable.

      And please - no quotes allowed lol

        That's easy, Frogdropping, the usual morning routine:

        - Felt stimulated about a dream I had about being kidnapped by a mermaid, who then handed me over to two beautiful (female) angels, who took me straight to Paradise, where 400 maids were awaiting my arrival;

        - Looked in the mirror and thought: Uhm, it's time to shave (I can send you spent razor blades as evidence).

        All very down-to-earth "male stuff."

    I nominate Website Examiner to be an elite IF:

    They get rid of the description 'elite' and replace it with something else. Even Hero or something is better, because otherwise it sounds like they are a member of the illuminati.

    They deserve plenty of recognition, no doubt about that. But elite is a slightly strong word, as it makes Hubpages 'elitist', and nobody wants to be described as that.

    I think "HubPage Deity" would work well as a title for WE!

  21. Haunty profile image84
    Hauntyposted 6 years ago

    Has WE volunteered yet? Otherwise it's not going to happen based on our recommendations.

    Anyway, he is already an elite in my eyes. He not just helps out a lot in forum, but also has lots of useful and fun hubs about hubpages and writing. So a big YES to WE for an elite and/or deity.

    Website Examiner has been a complete inspiration to me.  He led me by the hand in the initial stages when I felt completely inadequate.  Without him I would have left Hubpages without trace.  He is a constant support not only to myself but to hundreds of others.  He leaves us constructive comments and nothing is too much trouble for him. His policy is to help and reassure whenever he can.
    He even wrote an amazing short story for me when a replied to his challenge. The Snow Princess is astounding in my opinion and an excellent read. He is blessed with an exceptional writing ability. The style and language that he uses is awesome.
    I recommend Website Examiner whole heartedly for an elite award, in my opinion he always puts others before himself.  He is wonderful and the epitome of what a perfect hubber should be.

      More for those that don't have it. The word causes a little consternation. And to be fair, if you look at the definition - it's understandable.

      Maybe hubbers should brain storm and come up with a different name. Not suggesting HP will take notice but it has to be said - they do tend to listen in general smile

        Could you imagine that bearing the Elite insignia would make helping out in the forums more difficult? I already have plenty of people confusing me with staff.

    Why can't we all just be our wonderful selves without giving us titles. This topic is a much better way to tell WE how much we appreciate his efforts. (I think a paycheck from HP central is in order myself, for everything WE does.)

    2. frogdropping profile image85
      frogdroppingposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      IDK the answer to that one. Way back HP were musing on what to call those that greeted new hubbers. It was done quietly, unless you were doing it no one else knew. AT some point they felt it fair that the greeters were recognized for what they were doing, so they thought to call us something.

      The HubGreeter then appeared, as a reference to the greeting (of course smile) then the E followed. Can't tell you much about that, I was only aware of it when Sufidreamer emailed me to say congratz.

      @ WE - the E doesn't really make a difference to me. Folks still email me asking the same questions, no more, no less. I don't know that when I'm in the forum it makes being a user more difficult either - excepting when other hubbers voice a negative opinion of it.

      For my part - I get ignored in the forums in relation to when I'm direct with another hubber. You know - when something is written that warrants my ire kinda thing lol
