I have six hubs that have been selected as Editor's Choice from what I see in the stats as the Editor's Choice logo appears next to the titles of those hubs. There is no Editor's Choice logo in the hubs themselves however so no one really knows that those hubs are Editor's Choice. Will that violate the rules if I create an image that says "Editor's Choice" on it and upload it to the hubs that have been selected as Editor's Choice?
I would recommend against it, since it is possible for a Hub to lose Editor's Choice status. It's also likely that such an image would not relate to the content of your Hub and therefore would confuse (or at least provide no additional value for) your readers.
However, we do have a few things in the works that will give more recognition and visibility to EC Hubs, so keep an eye out for future EC-related announcements.
P.S. Congratulations on your 6 EC Hubs! That is really quite an achievement. Well done.
Thank you for letting me know. I will refrain from doing so then.
Thanks for your response, Christy; and thanks to lovebuglena for asking the question. I was wondering the same thing, as I had hoped to see the EC icon displayed at the top of each individual EC-designated hub, much like the Hub of the Day icon displays on each winning hub's article page. Looking forward to seeing what HP has in store regarding this issue!
I wouldn't do that. HP does things in its own time...and they may come around to that eventually. However, as of today, I notice there is now a new accolade shown under your profile photo on your news feed page.
I can't tell while logged in whether that shows up to others on your profile page or not...but I'm going to find out.
I just logged out and back in--the accolade does show on your profile page, where people from outside HP would search for you by your writer name.
Congratulations on so many EC hubs! I just got my first one recently :-)

So I'm replying to a comment on my hub and upon scrolling through the hub (I always check for errors or how I can improve), I see the related hubs section. There are five hubs there including one of mine. What immediately got my attention is that the other four hubs has "editors choice"...

I was pleasantly surprised when I logged into HP this morning and found that my most recent hub has been tagged with the "Editor's Choice" icon. Yay! After all these months with no EC nods, I was starting to wonder if I'd offended the Powers That Be somehow. ("Could it be my...

I make it a habit to count my EC hubs just to make sure none have gone missing. (OCD) This morning I was surprised to see one of mine lost its designation overnight. There were no edits to it and it still has the same 70 comments and 42 original pictures of a method and a recipe. The only...

I know there's been a lot of discussion on the forums about the Editor's Choice hubs. First, I want to say that I really appreciate all the hard work and creativity that the HP staff put into our community, but I guess I just don't understand the idea behind the Editor's Choice hubs. I...

I opened my Hp site today and was surprised to have 10 "Editor's choice" selected for my hubs. I wonder how many did you get. No hidden agenda; just curious.
