We're always being told that when it comes to online writing, more is more. It's recommended that all hubs are above 500 words. With this in mind, it would be nice to be able to check the word count on our hubs without having to go to the hubs and look at the metrics. Maybe another page under "My Account" with "advanced stats". Information from "Hub Metrics" could be included here to make it moire accessible. Or at least a symbol next to hubs on our hub stats page? We already have one for missing summaries, so why not include an "under 500 words one" and a "missing picture" one.
Thanks for the suggestion. We actually do provide a word count on published Hubs. If you view one of your own Hubs while logged in and then click the "stats" link that appears in the black bar at the top of the page, on the Hub Metrics tab there is a Word Count field.
Also when writing a Hub, the text module has a count of how many words are in the current text capsule. But since a Hub may contain many text capsules this doesn't necessarily correspond to a total word count for your Hub.

What happened to my little blue tip box I have become so attached to? I let me know how many words I had, if an image was not clear enough, and let me know when my hub was presentable and ready to publish.

Is it possible to be able to see the word count when previewing the hub unpublished, or another way to do so before publishing. I know that after the results have been gathered, the word count is listed in the stats. It...
