UPGRADE 'Hub of the Day' winner standards!

    Misfit Chickposted 3 years ago

    Okay, I'm going to go OFF on the Hub of the Day choice, again... I KNOW that there are better Hubs written about MUCH better topics in here every day. I know, because I've read some of them. If Hubpages wants to be KNOWN for it's talented writers who DO write about WORTHY subjects beyond crafts, recipes and the occasional 'cutsy' article; they NEED to start spotlighting some of them - controversial or NOT.

      Hi MC,

      Feel free to email me any Hubs that you think are worthy.

      (Only Hubs that follow the HOTD Qualifying Criteria will be considered, so please be sure your suggestions fall within the guidelines.)

        How about my Why I Am Extremely Terrified of Google hub sometime in January? I'm sure Google would be thrilled. big_smile big_smile big_smile

          Hah! A bit risky for our homepage, I suspect, but it's a good Hub. smile

            Thanks. I think Google actually likes it. It's #3 on the front page. Too bad nobody ever uses those search terms though. lol

        Neat, I had no idea that the Hub of the Day wasn't necessarily published on 'that day'. Honestly, that makes things even MORE puzzling as to HOW they get chosen to be on the front page.

        I've seen some very badly-written hubs with more than a few grammar and especially spelling errors - on top of being about as interesting as a head of boiled cabbage.

        Since it can be a hub that isn't from that day, I'm SURE the Hubpages team could do alot better. I'll see what I can do to help you out - but I would think Hubpages editors and head honcho writers, etc - would already be qualified to do that on their own.

        Kristy Kirwan! consider my hub: Shakespearean Tragedy. It receives a reasonable traffic from google.

        Why doesn't HubPages make this an option rather than the one to recommend Editor's Choice hubs? Not everyone is enrolled in the EC program yet everyone sees the HOTD.

    Sounds good to me, ha!

    Because these HOTD hubs are not immediately published, how about a heads up  to the authors to review these before publication, at the least, spelling errors. I am sure the authors don't want to see those in their HOTD posts.

      That is a great idea! wink

      Millionaire Tipsposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      I really like this idea.  An editor could come in and say, "your hub has been nominated to be a Hub of the Day.  Do you want some help in polishing it up for company?"  This way, the Hubber has some warning and check it over either on their own or with the help of the editor.

      Maybe the editor could even point out the really glaring mistakes so the Hubber can get a chance to correct it.

      I know that all hubs should be ready for company.  After all, they are published.  But when they are singled out like that, they are subject to intense scrutiny and criticism.

        Millionaire Tipsposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        Another advantage of this idea, is that an editor is available to more people.  Instead of an editor editing several hubs of an individual Hubber and leaving everyone waiting, they can get a chance to touch more people's hubs.  Then those people can take what they learn on that one hub and use it to better all of their hubs.

        Excellent suggestion, Millionaire Tips! I also love the way you suggested that it is presented to the HP member whose hub was selected. Those are gracious, diplomatic, and inviting words!

      Some of us made similar suggestions 8 weeks ago in this forum:
      http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126090
      They did not get any replies/comments from HP staff.

    Misfit Chickposted 3 years ago

    Well it is definitely a subject that needs to be picked up again... Has anyone read the HotD for today? Yeah, it is an interesting subject, but ZMOG it could use an upgrade from an editor - no offense, at all - but, it's written so BORING. That happens... WHY are we not getting a response from Hubpages about this issue? It's OKAY with our head honchos that our HotD's SUCK to high heaven sometimes when they can do something about it to improve things from so many perspectives - the writers, the topics and the site, itself?!! Come ON, stop IGNORING us!!!

      I read today's HOTD and did not find it boring. It is well written on an interesting historical subject that does not  benefit from florid and overly dramatic prose.

      1. Misfit Chick profile image69
        Misfit Chickposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        I'm not sure which HOTD you're talking about - yesterday's or todays. Yesterday's was written VERY bland; and todays is another pinterest subject. Yeah, the HOTD seriously needs HELP. How the people who run this site manage to pick the most mediocre articles to spotlight is amazing to me. I KNOW there are MUCH better ones being written every day.
