I had not realized until today that if someone has earned a Hub of the Day Accolade you can click on the icon on their profile page to read the contents of the Hubs which have earned the accolade.
I am wondering if HubPages Staff might like like to consider doing the same thing with the Editors Choice Accolades?
What do others think?
I don't see any advantage in it, because I didn't know that you could click on the accolade for Hub of the Day either. I wonder how many do. It would be alot of work for Hubpages without many advantages.
I want one of your frogs for Christmas. So cute.
That is a good suggestion. I will bring it up in our community meeting on Thursday! Thanks!
Robin - You are very welcome - the Editors Choice Hubs would so easily accessed from a profile page. Glad you liked the idea.
Thanks Robin. I was also wondering about the individual hubs being marked as Editor's Choice. I always see the Hub of the Day pictured next to the hub title. Is there any chance you'll ever mark the hubs that are Editor's Choices the same way?
Robin I wondered whether HubPages had discussed this idea at their meeting a few weeks back!
I really like that feature on the HOTD accolade. I remember when they fixed that so it is clickable and I use that feature often.
I also like the idea. I didn't know about being able to click on the HUD accolade and being able to see the hubs with that award. Thanks for letting us know.
I´m glad about this information. Thank you sallybea. The frog looks great.
Can I ask why you keep posting that photo every time you create a forum or question?
I don't this is the same thread which is four weeks old - I was just replying to it. Not sure how I remove an once it has been posted the first time! Sorry if the frog was irritating you but the thread is now closed -you won't need to see it again. Myy thanks to Robin.
That's a mighty tasty looking frog...have you eaten it yet?...I just looove frogs...
Yes it has been eaten sadly but thank goodness it was not just the legs we had to eat! Check out how to make your own Edible Bread Frog on my Pages, I have no intention of sharing my frog next time! Hey, I think we went off the subject somewhat there! You have a great day.
Great idea, and I really love that frog! I want to start baking again, just so I can make one of those!
Our Thursday meeting was cancelled two weeks ago and last Thursday was Thanksgiving, so we haven't discussed it yet. I'll bring it up this Thursday!
Was there any outcome to the proposal I made at the staff meeting please.
I really liked your suggestion. One of the problems with showing all EC Hubs is that some Hubbers have many EC Hubs and the UI on this would be awkward; this is not usually the case with HOD Hubs.
We talked a lot about Hubber suggestions in our last meeting. We are working on ways to better listen to and implement Hubber ideas. One of our concerns is the maintenance of the new features. All of the features on the site need to be maintained (many times maintaining older features prevents us from creating new, more likely to be used features.) We get a lot of suggestions, and we don't like telling Hubbers that we can't implement their ideas, but the reality is that even if a feature is easy to create, it may take significant man power to maintain within the entire site structure. I think this is something that is often overlooked - it was by me until it was explained by our engineers. I just wanted you to have an idea of our point of view when reviewing features. Many times we think they are great, but we just don't have the resources to implement everything. We also have to weigh what we feel will impact the most Hubbers, e.g., mobile was a significant and time consuming improvement that benefited all Hubbers. Thanks again for your suggestions! We do appreciate them, even if we can't implement them all.
That is not a problem - I completely understand and I appreciate your taking the time to putting the suggestion forward.
it is always nice to know that the idea was considered even if it could not be implemented.
After reading your response, I can understand why the suggestion would be difficult to maintain if implemented. As I read, another idea popped into my head that may serve as an alternative. This idea would list all Editor's Choice hubs by all members. Would it be possible to add a browse category for hubs labeled "Editor's Choice Hubs". It could be either a main category on the first page under the main categories or perhaps a subcategory under each of those.
Thank you, That is nice to know. I appreciate your coming back to this question.
I didn't know that either, Sally. An Editor's Choice icon doesn't show, though, until you've had five. So, if you clicked on the Editor's Choice symbol, which hub would result? Hmm.
Hello, yes, I am aware of that - you would probably not be able to do this until a person had more than five Editors Choice Hubs, that is at the moment but maybe that could changed to one - not sure if HubPages Staff would agree to putting this into motion. - it seemed to me though that if this is being done for Hub of the Day, then it could just as easily be done for Editors Choice Hubs. We will have to wait and see!
I don't see the point in publicising a user's Editor's Choice Awards.
It will just become a Thieves Charter. Hey these are the good hubs, let's steal those!
Let's face it, EC is just an experiment to see how well good hubs do when back on the main domain.
I've been working on all of my stolen ones today. You might be right Izzy. We have so many stolen already.
An EC designation doesn't necessarily mean that a Hub gets a lot of search engine traffic. I opted out of the EC program, but so many Hubbers have reported that their EC Hubs are some which didn't get much traffic.
I think it is time that the staff gave everyone some feedback on the entire EC program, what it was meant to accomplish and if Google has been impressed with the effort.
I have nine and they are pretty much in a niche subject. They continue to get a fair bit of traffic - but they were doing well before that. My problem is that I have more writing on the same subject which have somehow escaped the Editors Choice Hubs Net. The quality of them is equal to those selected - I don't think that there are enough real people to real all the Hubs - it makes me feel frustrated.
There are so many things which are not being addressed - perhaps Hubbers need a committee of some sort to work in our interests. Perhaps Billybuc could be our spokesman, once he has received a reply to his open letter!
Thanks for your comment.
sorry, that should have said not enough real people to read he Editors Choice Hubs.
Well,some sort of feedback would be really nice regarding how well they are doing.
I think you'll have to be patient regarding the overall effect of the EC hubs project (as with most things in this sphere). Some hubs will see an immediate benefit from being EC, others could take months to see improvement, if at all. It's a long term experiment. E.g. one of my hubs that has been EC for a good few months has only just started to pick up.
P.S. you can nominate your own hubs for EC if you want to.
I tried doing it for one which I felt needed to be with one of it because of it's content - but so far, not a sausage - it takes real people to read them and I guess I have to realize that you have just had thanksgiving in the States - patience is a virtue they say!
I will try to practice some from today.
Oh that is nice to know, thank you. I posed a question yesterday - about whether there were any stats for the numbers of people from Europe who might be writing on here.
I'm from the British Isles too. Great to see you, Sally and Susana from the UK! Closer to home.
Paul Deeds posted this comment on the Forum about the EC award three weeks ago:
"It can have an effect on traffic, often positive but sometimes negative."
I like the way. You bake your bread. It was creative. I love it. I bake too. One of this days. I am going to create my own frog. Thanks for the idea.
First time, I see the frog. Please keep it, so other writers can see it. And new visitors can see your creativity. Congratulation on your article.

My "Inside the Beehive" hub just got the "Editor's Choice" award. After reading the posts about Editor's Choice, I feel like it is like getting the key to the city. It is a great honor, but it's not good for any thing. It doesn't even show up on my profile...

Lately, I have had 11 hubs unfeatured due to Quality Issues. I have assured my hubs do not contain grammatical or spelling errors. I have included relevant video and changed the titles and added new supporting texts and all this to no avail. The HubPages Staff continues to deem my hubs do not...

Just curious, one of my hubs, selected as a hub of the day some time ago has been my top performing one for quite a while. However, it does seem odd to me that hubs of the day are not automatically selected as Editors Choice Hubs as well! Anyone else ever wondered why this is? If not, would...

Hi,Is there any standard on how many tags we need to use for a hub?Is it OK to use 25 tags for a 500 word hub?How many tags do you guys use? (hope I am not asking for closely guarded secret here)I would appreciate if successful hubbers answer this question.I think, it will help many others also as...

Hello,I try not to make waves with "How Hubpages Operates" and I am not sure if this singular problem is having a huge effect or not.But, I've noticed that many hubs I had connected to other hubs via "embedded" links(anchored text) have not been coming up or being flagged as...

Hello all. I'm new to HubPages, and I was disappointed that my first hub got unpublished. It was a review of a website. I can understand how it might have been viewed as promotional because it was about just one site. But I pointed out to the HubPages staff that there are...
