Yesterday, I received the "Level IV Commenter" accolade. Today, it is gone.
Additionally, a couple months ago, I received the "Great HubPages Citizen" accolade, and the next day it was gone.
Why are my accolades disappearing? I can understand how I can suddenly become an 'unworthy' of the 'great citizen' award, but how can the comments thing disappear? Are the comment that I made, which were previously considered 'good' comments, now considered bad for some reason?
And because of your post, I also went and checked. Yep, my awesome Level I status comment accolade has also taken a hike. I knew I should have put a GPS ankle bracelet on the thing, but I just never got around to it. Lately, HP has been doing stuff every week here these days.
My newly earned Level 1 Commenter accolade was gone when I checked this morning, too. I'm pretty sure I still only write comments when I've read a hub thoroughly and have something to say about it, so I'm going to assume we're missing these because of a glitch rather than a change in quality. It's good (for lack of a better word) to know that it's not just me!
Mine is missing too. I make lots of comments and have been commenting quite a bit lately, so it is doubtful that I dropped below 0.
I wonder if they removed it because they don't want to encourage us to comment so much on other hubs. Maybe if we comment on someone's hub who isn't doing well, we are getting inferior backlinks. Or we are providing inferior links to the better hubs. Maybe they just want us to spend more time writing quality hubs.
