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 breath?")
If someone out there nominated me for the EC tag... thanks.
yea! :-) so happy to hear..what great news!
I wish you many more nods...
Congratulations and well done! The "Could it be my breath?" line made me chuckle
Hello, fellow hubbers . . . .I am editing text of my hub .. . but could not change the title. How do I change the title? I clicked text . . .but the title does not appear . . so I could not change it! Help~
Nods Nods and congrats! Wow 99 score too! Excellent and many thumbs ups to you!
Its been a while since I've had one after getting 4 in my first few weeks - I was starting to wonder what I'd done too! Hopefully its just a matter of time.
Thanx folks. Nice to finally get noticed. After months of reading forum posts from peeps saying they had 10 Editors Choice, 20 Editors Choice, etc., I was starting to feel like Charlie Brown when he goes trick or treating ("I got a rock.")!
You can nominate your Hubs for EC if you want to. Just go to the form:
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/16MOW8K … I/viewform
Robin E. said it was fine to do that. (I opted out of the program.)
You can nominate your own Hubs? Seriously? That just seems so... cheesy.
But apparently the staff doesn't think so. They even appreciate your pointing out your own best Hubs because it is taking so long for them to go through the entire site. Besides, other people are recommending their own Hubs. If you really want more EC Hubs, why not nominate some of yours?
WTG FatFreddysCat! Just four more until you get an accolade
You'll have to tell us if it brings more traffic. I opted out when it was first introduced. Lots of people are reporting different results.
It's showing a blue arrow this morning ( )so if I'd have to hazard a guess, I'd say it hasn't made much difference yet. Haha
It's been a few weeks since I was allowed to get on the Editor's Choice train so here's an update...
My first Hub to get the EC nod is chugging along nicely, and is still picking up views at a decent clip. I'm pleased.
However, most of my older Hubs that have been EC'd since then haven't benefited as much. Every day they might pick up one view here, two views there, but aren't performing any better than they would have without the EC designation. I thought they'd get more of a bump.
Make of that what you will, I guess.
Congrats on your run of Editor's Choice hubs. It seems to me that it would improve traffic if people could tell which hubs are chosen as "EC". As it is, there is nothing that distinguishes our favored hubs from an outsider's perspective or from the inside. (Unless, of course, one studies the URL.)
Maybe that's coming.
Congrats on your EC hubs! That's great! I have 2, but when it first began, my arrows were BLUE on them, so I opted out for 2 months. I opted back in, but still see a blue arrow on each of them, instead of a red one. So it's good to have our writing recognized, but I have doubts about whether I got more traffic out of it. I suppose I will keep in for now. Anyway, happy you are discovered.
I've now got two "Editor's Choice" Hubs... one of my older entries somehow mysteriously achieved that designation when i wasn't looking.
...and now I have three EC's! Woohoo! They're multiplying like mushrooms.
I'm now up to five EC's! The snowball is gaining speed as it rolls downhill!!
They must review authors rather than only individual hubs. I imagine it might be a combination of both. Pretty much all of mine that weren't idled became EC as soon as it rolled out, and I believe the other AP grads were reviewed early, too. I haven't heard any of them complain about not getting EC, at least, and a few of us are still in touch elsewhere.
A few more of my Hubs have been EC'd while I wasn't looking... I'm now up to 10. Woohoo! Feeling the love.

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 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?

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 had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google for the keywords that brought it all the traffic before EC messed it up. How can I...

Wondering where we stand with regard to a new accolade for having more than 5 EC hubs or even a way for people to see this special distinction publicly on our hubs. Right now, we are the only ones who can see it - on our account statistics. I'm tempted to opt out at this point. Is there anyone else...
