    I'd like to see a word count ticker near the article content box as I draft my articles...

        I think it might be a simple javascript smile

    I write my completed article in Word before I publish, so I already know the word count.

      Tim, I think Glamorously J has a point...with the number of hubs being unpublished and the stringent conditions it is better to have a word count ticker in each capsule...I guess it is no big deal for HP to implement.
      Better safe than sorry , I guess!! smile

    I would love to see this too.
    I actually sit and count my words to make sure I feel the hub is long enough before posting.

    I'd like to see that too (at least in some instances) (although, if anyone were to see my writing he'd see that I tend to have no problem with minimum word counts, and tend to disregard the entire concept of maximum word counts.   lol   (:hmm)

    I write first and  then copy and paste;
    but I do  revise at times and a word count would be helpful.

    I use the HubMetrics tab after I leave edit mode to check the word count. It is easy to use.
