Is it a compliment to have a hub chosen for editing and placement on the professiinal site or not?
I received an email declaring one of ny hubs had been chosen for some editing by staff and then placement on a professional site.
I don't believe it is ever a compliment for strangers to edit your work. If editing is required you should be notified of the problem and allowed to correct it, or, if it is edited by one of their staff, you should be allowed to read the edit and accept or reject the edit. Once your words have been edited by a stranger, they are no longer your words.

Being placed on one of the professional sites is a plus.

Now that HP has professional editors, I think it would be a good idea to have the editors review the HOTD before it is featured. The HOTD is a showcase not only for the hubber, but for all of HubPages. A person new to HP might think that getting it right is not very important. I make...
