This evening, I started following a hubber, and noticed that she had a Hub of the Day badge on her profile. I wanted to be able to quickly locate and pull up the hub (or hubs) that received the accolade by clicking on the badge.
Is this a feature that could be incorporated?
I have wished there was a feature like that myself.
Sounds fun! Here is the link to the archive of the HOTDs: http://hubpages.com/hubs/oftheday/
Yes, that is a good link, but if I am on someone's profile, I want to go straight to their own hub of the day.
I agree, you can't even search the archive by name. You just have to scroll through until you find it.
If a Hubber has earned more than 1 Hub of the Day, which Hub should the accolade link to?
Good question! (I was actually wondering the same thing). I would suggest link to the most recently awarded HOTD. I have also noticed that some hubbers list their HOTD awards and links on their profile page themselves. Alternatively, Arlene's suggestions regarding links to all HOTD from the badge would be fine. I am not sure about having an icon on the profile like the small "e" for elite hubbers. Personally, I prefer having the awards listed below the profile to keep a cleaner appearance. Just my opinion.
You could give them a new one time they earn one.
Jason, if the winning authors earned more than one Hub of the Day, is it too much too ask to list all of them under the Hub of the Day accolade? Or could you make an accolade which signifies a person with multiple winners? There are not a lot of writers who have earned more than one Hub of the Day. Since they earned it, why not? Or maybe have them list their winners on their profile? Some of these writers are already doing this, including Homesteadbound and Davenmidtown (if I remember correctly). I follow others who have won multiple Hub of the Day honors, but I always catch them through email notifications. It is frustrating to come across a Hub of the Day accolade on someone's profile and not knowing which of Hubs is the winner. I wouldn't mind reading it.
Yes, inquiring minds want to know!
Or could you put the Hub of the Day symbol on a profile photograph like the "e" on the Elite avatars? Or am I asking for the moon??? I do have faith in technology most of the time.
Hahahaha! Forgive me, steph, and scratch any suggestion done to the profile photographs! I finished reading that long post on "e" and the Elite staff in the Forum, so it's still in my head.
I agree with you. Many of the winners already have impressive portfolios. I would like to read their winning Hubs whenever I see the accolade. Or at least easily get to them for a good read. Right now, the symbol (accolade) is there, but which Hub(s) is the winner(s)?
When I can't find the award-winning writing, I feel like I've missed out. No! I know I've missed out!
OK, thanks, guys. I'll see if this is something we can have engineering work on. Thanks for the suggestion, Steph!
Tom just rolled out an enhancement that you might like. Click on any Hubber's HotD accolade (and thanks for the suggestion!).
Neat! Thank a ton-a-bunch! This is fantastical. Engies get scones... on me.
Awesome! That is so wonderful! Thank you for the very quick turn around. Scones for all.
It would be cool for the emblem to "stack" so if a person has one more than once it has like a little 2 or 3 on it... corresponding to the number of times they've won it. Probably not really possible, but it was a thought I had.
Awesome! Now that is nice! Once you pick your scone please pass one along thanks.
I am very happy that the Hub of the Day accolade takes you to the hub or a list of hubs. Just a couple of other suggestions:
1. When you hover the accolade, it says "one of xx's hub was selected" which isn't true if there is more than one. Can you change it to say "one or more" to make it more accurate? Also it would be nice if it would also say "click to see" or something to that effect, so people are aware of this nifty feature.
2. Can we do the same thing for HubNuggets winners?

I think you need a badge that is awarded for individuals Hub achievements, such as: if one Hub receives over 5,000 views, that's quite an achievement - there should be a badge for that.

I had not realized until today that if someone has earned a Hub of the Day Accolade you can click on the icon on their profile page to read the contents of the Hubs which have earned the accolade. I am wondering if HubPages Staff might like like to consider doing the same thing with the...

My "Inside the Beehive" hub just got the "Editor's Choice" award. After reading the posts about Editor's Choice, I feel like it is like getting the key to the city. It is a great honor, but it's not good for any thing. It doesn't even show up on my profile...

What to do when one of the hubber here has visited one of my hub 52 times and rewritten my hub?This is one of my most successful hubs.
