Wouldnt it be wonderful if we were notified by email that us or our hubs had been featured on the front page.
I dont know about you, but I rarely see the front page as I am logged in most of the time, I only know if my hubs have been featured if someone tells me or I see an increase in traffic on some hubs. I then might log out, check and log in again.
This email notification feature would be brilliant for self esteem. What a lovely bonus to the day of the Internet writer!!!
If I might add that LinkedIn details specifically the number of times you and/or profile showed up in searches - very helpful.
I, too, never see the home page.
The discussion page under the groups for LinkedIn has changed to a scroll - where you can just about hop (sound familiar) from one discussion to the next. I like the new format they have developed - speedier and more info too at the same time.
I get enough emails as it is, I don't want to be notified that my hub was on the front page for an hour or less.
I agree with Whitney. Next you'll want to know when you're on a related hub. It's too much info, that just isn't that important enough for me to keep track of. As, usual, I'd want an opt out button.
So, if none of us ever look at that page, why do we care about it?
I accidentally discovered that I was "featured" last week, and it did make me wonder if it has ever happened before. I trimmed out all e.mails about things like "someone commented", because I was coming back every time I'd get an e.mail or two that said someone commented. Now, I just see it when I sign in.
I kind of like the idea of being notified if we "make" the featured page, for no real reason other than knowing how often it happens (out of curiosity). It never even occurred to me to think about it until I saw it last week.
As far as "the next thing being..." goes, I don't necessarily think there would be a next thing (and if there were, that might be where the line could be drawn). There's a lot of things that happen that I don't care about, but I think it's kind of neat to see it if you're among the featured Hubbers. Sure, it changes; and I don't think anyone thinks it's more important than it really is - but I'd just kind of neat to know (as long as we already know a lot of stuff we don't really care about knowing...). Either way is fine, but I wouldn't have minded knowing last week (instead of discovering it out of a freak instance of signing out and in again).
Lisa, there's always a next thing. It's human nature to constantly want.

If I may be so bold as to make a request of HubPages, I would like you to please re-examine at this time your decision to ban Jerrico Usher from the Hub Forums.He has proven himself to be quite mindful of the mistake he made before and seems to me to be waaay to smart to make the same mistake...

Who thinks we should ask to reinstate a page dedicated to locating hubbers by hubber score. Beginning with 100-0.We once had such a page here that made the hubber score much more relevant, and we could at least get a chance to locate the top hubbers who most definitely deserved high praise for...

A new accolade was recently introduced regarding the number of featuring of hubs. It is a wonderful concept and everyone appreciated. Now I would like request the HP people for introducing a new kind of Accolade. If more than 60% of the hubs of a hubber is Featured, he can...

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

I'm thinking the answer is probably yes?If you have hubs that have been deemed "not featured", for one reason or another, will that factor into lowering your overall score/rating as a HubPages member? Example--let's say your overall rating is 75. If 10 non featured hubs become...
