It's great to acknowledge great hubs. "useful" "funny" "awesome" and "interesting" are great buttons. But I'd like one more. I'd like a button that says "inspiring".
Great hubs keep me going. They inspire me to read, think, and above all write. Others inspire me to get out of bed, or go for a walk, to keep breathing and make my life useful.
Inspiring is, I guess, a special category of "useful." So, for now, if a hub inspires me, I mark it useful. But I'd like to be able to mark it "inspiring"!
I've always figured that combination of votes can more or less convey some of these other things. Seems to me that beautiful + useful = inspiring. Funny + awesome = epic. Interesting + beautiful = sexy. Er...maybe.
I would think that if you really found a hub inspiring, you would be moved to say so in a comment rather than simply hitting a button and moving on to something else.
