Nuggets Are Forever
The name is Elf...Red Elf
"My team and I have just successfully concluded our mission. We faced incredible personal danger to secure this list for you - this week's roster of HubNugget Wannabes. This information must get out - for the benefit of online writers everywhere. These ten wannabe hubs have been selected to vie for the coveted status of HubNugget - the rest is up to you!"
The scene - a lonely, deserted back street in the myriad by-ways of Hub Pages. Under the fitful glare of a single street lamp, a dark figure waits motionless, trench coat buttoned against the dank chill of the moonless night, slouch hat pulled down, casting deep shadows across the chiseled profile. The figure casts a sharp glance back up the street behind you, making sure you haven't been followed, and beckons you forward.
"Quick - we don't have much time. They're waiting for me back at le bistro Chez Nuggetry. Just listen...don't talk! I have the information right here..." *reaches inside trench-coat and pulls out a plain manila envelope* "Take this!" *curious, you start to peek inside* "Stop! Don't open it now! Someone might see you! *looks around to make sure no-one is near enough to overhear* You first have to seek out the capsule below. Only then it will be safe to open the envelope! Read all the hubs - then, cast your vote..." *leans closer to whisper your final instructions before melting into the shadows* "It's all up to you now...don't fail us. Find the capsule...read the hubs. Tell everyone you can - spread the word. All of Hub Pages is counting on you!"

The HubNuggets Team
Maddy Rudd, Hub Pages employee and co-head of the HN-T Department (the top secret HubNuggets Team), cloaks her true identity in her clever cover, that of mild-mannered Hub Pages Moderator and Communicator of Awesome Fairness.
Her co-lead Jason Menayan, Hub Pages employee in the highly-classified field of Top-Secret Marketing, is newly created Communicator of Awesomeness, helping Maddie fill the vacancy left by the MIA Hup, former head of the team.
Known only as "M", Shirley Anderson is the Mastermind behind our missions. Scorning to remain behind her keyboard, she throws herself into the thick of the fray. Her patience is legendary, and her keen eye for excellence has rescued many a deserving HubNugget Wannabe from the clutches of Hub-scurity.
Freelance writer, Jackalope-of-all-trades, connoisseur of butter tarts. His cover as a bon-vivant, world traveler and evil
genius hides his true identity of "Q", master of spy-gadgets and gravy boats, as well as his unquestioned "nose" for nugget potential, no matter how diabolically camouflaged they may be - or he may be, for that matter.
Moneypenny Inglish, MS (Master Spy) - Freelance writer, fluent in many languages, including HubNugget speak. One of the first team members to receive the coveted "00" designation, her exploits in drawing deserving wannabes forth from the shadows are as legendary as her writing skills.

Zsuzsy Bee, has already gained an awesome reputation as a great hubber and fun, supportive gal. Her "00" designation is recent, but already, she laughs in the face of danger while scouring Hub Pages in search of likely candidates for HubNugget fame and glory.
...and "Elf - RedElf" (that's me) - author, poet, photographer, I'll have my nuggets shaken, not stirred. and while you're at it, please pass the butter tarts to the jackalope.
