The Rising Stars Program
The replacement name that was selected is the Rising Stars & it replaced the Hubnugget name for the program. It's much more appealing and clear this time as to what the program fully represents on hubpages. Essentially the program is the same, but how it once was managed in the past was done by a select group known as the Hubpages Elite Team, and towards the end of this article its explained in detail as to what occurred with this new change.
The way it works for new Rising Stars, is there will be 18 top random hubs selected from that of the newest hubbers who have joined onto hubpages and published hubs within the first 60 days. This makes it a fair playing field, and the window for acceptance into this award system here also requires them to have at least the minimum of a hubbers score of 75.

According to the official Hubpages Learning Center, the once hubnugget team of volunteers are no longer running the program which was community run in the past, their help and devoted efforts was truly priceless indeed, and always well received as well as appreciated by the Hubpages Team. Taking their place today however, is an automated polling system which was placed into the Topic Pages, and a new voting interface as well for detecting votes by fellow hubbers, and from that of the online community as a whole who all get a chance to vote for these new Rising Stars every week on Friday (These potential Rising Star hubs will be located on the their specifically selected Topic Pages & shown in a special carousel display for voting and sharing purposes, and for showing these hot! new hubbers loving support, thus crowning of 9 new lucky Rising Stars each week).
