I'd like to see a new button - could we vote a hub "inspiring"?

    It's great to acknowledge great hubs. "useful" "funny" "awesome" and "interesting" are great buttons. But I'd like one more. I'd like a button that says "inspiring".

    Great hubs keep me going. They inspire me to read, think, and above all write. Others inspire me to get out of bed, or go for a walk, to keep breathing and make my life useful.

    Inspiring is, I guess, a special category of "useful." So, for now, if a hub inspires me, I mark it useful. But I'd like to be able to mark it "inspiring"!

      I second that idea. "Inspiring" would be perfect when "awesome" seems like too much and "interesting" too little.

    I've always figured that combination of votes can more or less convey some of these other things. Seems to me that beautiful + useful = inspiring. Funny + awesome = epic. Interesting + beautiful = sexy. Er...maybe.

      Eric - thanks - I think I'll use beautiful + useful for now. I still hope to see an "inspiring" button. It would be, well, inspiring!

    I would think that if you really found a hub inspiring, you would be moved to say so in a comment rather than simply hitting a button and moving on to something else.

      I agree WriteAngled!

      But people can also see the Hub Feedback of hubbers they are thinking of following and "inspiring" would be a useful addition there.
