I really wish there was a nomination process separate from voting. I'm sure there are plenty of worthy hubbers out there that have not crossed my path. Some categories, I can't even come up with a name. If I had a list of nominees to choose from, I could look them over and pick the one I like best. That would also be a good way to introduce us to other authors we don't know and to share our favorites.
That's a fantastic idea. I feel like most writers are known for their activity in the forums, not for their writing. I too would love to discover new writers, especially in the topics I'm interested in.
Yeah, I had to also make some changes to the list I had created. I left several empty also, some because I just wasn't sure who to put, one because though I narrowed it down to 3 I couldn't decide which of the 3 to vote for and a couple of new categories because quite honestly I found them to be too negative and I think of the Hubbies as being positive awards.
It is great to see the Hubbie Awards being continued. I look forward to voting every year. A few different categories and a couple left blank because too difficult to choose. Overall I am happy with my choices. I think they could get rid of a couple of categories and add some better ones, like "best creative writing hub," but oh well.
I like that idea. There are so many hubbers who write creative writing hubs and who don't get the attention they deserve because of the realities of how traffic and earnings work. It would be nice to have an award for them.
I'm so happy to be able to vote this year I just voted theraggededge for my most likely to be a HP employee lol.. I just had the feeling... But, deciding on just one article for the Best All-Around Article was tough. I don't think I have read enough articles to be choosing one.
Just to clarify, none of the Hubbie categories are meant to put anyone down or be offensive! "Biggest Mouth in the Forum" is just a playful way of describing whoever actively participates or offers the most advice, while "User Most Likely to be Banned" is there to give credit to the jokesters that make the forums so engaging and fun. The intention of this event is to create an enjoyable community bonding experience for everyone involved. :-)))))
In the past, we had to put links on the Hubbie form and not just write in the person's name or article title. Is this still the case? There was no direction in the rules, so I put in links for everything. Will it be accepted?
