    It is great that hubbers can now nominate hubs for Editor's Choice, but then shouldn't the name ...

    If hubs can be nominated by hubbers for Editor's Choice, wouldn't it make sense for it to then be called Hubber's Choice?  However, I guess, although we can nominate, the final decision is up to the Editor. Just semantics I know, but do you think it should still be called Editor's Choice?  Thanks for answering.

    I think so.. because some of the editor's choices have been questionable, and there a great deal of hubs that are simply fantastic.. case in point your last entry... Hubber's Choice all the way...Frank OUT!

    I think we should look at the decision criteria, if the main decision criteria is mostly base on Hubber's nomination with only minimal intervention from Editors under certain circumstances, then it makes sense to be called Hubber's Choice. On the other hand, if Editor has the absolute power to overwrite the Hubber's nomination all the times without any reason or criteria, then it's more appropriate to maintain as Editor's choice.

      Hi MAJJHIMA, thank you so much for answering.  Yes, if hubbers can nominate, but it is up to the Editor for the final choice, which is the case seems like, it would be more appropriate to be called Editor's choice in that instance.

    That's an interesting idea.  I do think it would be good to distinguish between whether a Hubber or the Editor nominated the Hub.  Makes sense to me.

      Hi Crafty, Appreciate you for taking the time to answer here!  Yes, being it is the Editor's Choice, but maybe add ...based on a hubber's nomination or something along those lines for sure. Great idea!

    If hubbers can nominate a hub for EC then it's not really editor's choice but more hubber's choice and it now has to do with the hub's popularity rather than the decision of the editors. In this case it should be called Hubber's Choice... Of course, I think the editors still review the hub before making the final decision on whether to make it EC or not.

      Hi lovebuglena, thank you for answering.  That is what I am thinking being we can nominate now, but then if the Editor has the final say, I guess it may be appropriately named.  I like the thought of Hubbers' Choice accolade.

    That's a very good observation, Faith Reaper. But I do think our nominations are just that; we are essentiallly helping the editors find the most worthy hubs. They are still making the final picks. Lord knows they don't have time to see all of the best hubs, as is the case with HOTD.

      Hi janshares, thank you for answering.  Yes, I am sure that is a huge task with the hundreds of thousands of hubs here on HP indeed! You are right about having double-duty there.  Have a great Sunday!
