I was tweaking some hubs today and edited one that was an Editors Choice when I noticed later that the icon was gone!
What have I done!?
I have the same problem and it involves doing some side notes on my only EC hub. Apparently, leaving that side note (before I deleted whatever it was) killed my EC hub (A Civil War History Hub) and it went back to my subdomain. I was disappointed when I lost it but since I never really had any hits to begin with, not too disappointed. I'm glad it's worthy of such an honor but to lose it without notice or reason kind of sucks.
The only thing I can think of is that it could possibly be under review after editing. IDK. I'm still kind of sad about mine.
Why not try asking HP staff to reinstate your EC designation on those Hubs? That might work: contact Team@hubpages.com
Repeatedly changing the URL of a webpage is not a good idea. The 301 redirect used to change it to an EC Hub the first time should have been a permanent change, but the EC program is not permanent. That's just one of the reasons I opted out. Obviously the EC program was of absolutely no benefit to your Hub. If I were you, I'd just leave it alone now that it's back on your subdomain.

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 did a little experiment with opting into the EC program for three months. To begin with,last year one of my better performing hubs become Editor's Choice. That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak. The day after being selected as EC, the views dropped to zero. I watched it for a...

I had 11 Editors Choice hubs. I noticed today that I only have 10 of them now. I don't remember exactly which hub lost the EC status but I have a feeling it might be a hub that has become unfeatured due to engagement. If an EC hub becomes unfeatured due to engagement does it lose EC status? And if...

I just received an email congratulating me for one of my hubs being selected as "Editor's Choice". It didn't tell me which hub was selected however and I checked my stats and there is no new hub labelled "editor's Choice." Does anyone know how long it takes to show up?
