Just a thought for those of us interested in Accolades?
Since we are awarded an Accolade for a certain number of Page Views how about getting awarded Accolades for a certain number of Slide Views?
A fair suggestion. I have had many thousands of slide views and to the best of my knowledge I get nothing in return for those views. Something would be better than nothing.
I think they would need to fix the slide viewer counter first. I still have many that say I have negative views.
We initially included the slide show views count in anticipation of an AdSense for Images product that Google was developing to include ads in the slideshows. We participated in Google's alpha trial of this product, but that ended a few months ago. Currently there is really no value in slideshow views. Also, as some mentioned, the current implementation fails in a few situations.
Before we would consider adding an accolade for it, we'd want the data it's based on to be informative and correct, and right now it's neither. I think the direction I'd lean is to remove them altogether, but we probably won't do anything until Google's beta phase of their AdSense for Images product.
Derek thanks for the reply. It looks like we would be better off concentrating on more productive things other than developing 'slide shows' ?
So that's what happened! I know I used to see some clicks from slide show ads showing up on analytics, but then they died and never came back. A shame as probably 30% of my adsense clicks came from slideshow views at one time.

Presently, the subject accolade is set up to reflect when a hubber reaches 1000, 10,000, 100,000, 1,000,000, 10,000,000 and 100,000,000 views. I believe that it should be revised to where it would reflect 1000, 10,000,...

Don't get me wrong, I review Hubs and offer suggestions because I enjoy participating in the community, not for gaining some small badge on my profile. However, I am curious at what point the accolade for helping new...

My views have dropped from over 100 per day to 20+ per day for the last 2 weeks. I hit 10,000 views but did not receive the accolade that shows that. I cannot post questions, or a new forum. I hope...

I reached 1000 views a couple of days ago but yet to receive my accolade. I was wondering if the accolade for 1000 views has been discontinued.

Last week, I woke up to find 1 of my 9 accolades missing. I contacted the team at Hubpages, and they responded by saying that it seems to be there now. Yep. It came back, so I had nine. Woke up today to find...

Over the weekend I reached 2.5 million views, which is 1/4 of the way to the next accolade. It took 3 years to get to the 1 million accolade, and one year, thanks to the niche sites, to add another 1.5 million. I think...
