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.
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.
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.
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.

I had a hub that was receiving around 1,300-1,500 views per day. It was chosen as Editor's Choice. It then dropped by about 1,000 views per day. I opted out of the program, but that hub is no longer showing in Google...

I opened my Hp site today and was surprised to have 10 "Editor's choice" selected for my hubs. I wonder how many did you get. No hidden agenda; just curious.

On Sunday, I noticed that many of my hubs made the Editor's Choice list. Though I was pleased, I noticed that my views had fallen somewhat. I figured it would take a few days for views to increase since my hubs are no...
