I used to be a level 4 commenter. Suddenly, became a level 1. Interesting!
Mine just went down 1 point. If it goes down, you aren't reading and commenting on enough other users hubs.
I trusted hubpages much more than I trusted other ones, because this is a writing club. Somehow, a life stage. Now, life is changing, even I do not want to.
It is a completely automated process that measures how many comments you make over a certain period of time.
I use to try to make at least 10 comments a day on hubs but not this last winter with sickness in the family I couldn't do it. I went down from an 8 to a 7 and may see it go down even more. I can't worry about it have to much more to worry about.
Hi Hui, I dropped from a 6 to a 3, maybe still dropping as we speak.
Sure. I spent a lot of time as a Level 6 commenter, but that was back when there were so many more of the kinds of Hubs that tend to invite discussion/commenting. Over time, as those types of Hubs dwindled I gradually went from a "Level 6" all the way down to a 1. I've been a 1 for ages now (at least a year, probably - although I'm not sure). Seems reasonable enough to me, considering that I have nothing to add to subjects about which I know little, won't just go comment for the sake of commenting, won't comment just with the hopes of getting someone come to my Hubs and make some meaningless comment in return, etc. etc.
With the emphasis on the types of Hubs there is (or at least appears to be to a lot of people these days), how much "comment-to-contribute-to-discussion" is really called for? If you think about it, people write magazine articles and newspapers articles all the time, and the only way readers can comment is to write a letter to the editor. With the emphasis on "magazine-style article" these days I'd suspect that "genuine commenting" (to aim to contribute to the discussion) is probably way down on HP now. Regardless of the type of Hubs HP has been encouraging/emphasizing/allowing at any given time, people have always been told that they should only do "genuine commenting".
As far as I can see, the entire "flavor" of "participation" on HP (at least with regard to the non-Hub-writing part of it) has drastically changed to the point where "genuine interaction" just doesn't happen to the degree that it once did. (I'm just kind of waiting to see if the "commenter accolade" disappears completely or if something goes on to encourage Hubs that tend to invite more discussion than a lot of what's on here these days tend to do.). I think a lot of people are probably like I am - no time or interest in reading stuff or doing stuff they don't really want to do, and not so worried about scores/accolades that they'll "adjust and go with the program".
That accolade has nothing to do with how successful you are on HubPages. Some people will comment back on one of your hubs and others don't. While I do agree that participation on here is good, it isn't necessary like it is on that "other" site where interaction determines success. They are as different as night and day.
From memory that accolade only includes comments made in the previous 9 months.
Either way, interaction doesn't make you money or get you traffic; offsite interaction does
Yes, I was level four for a while. I am now level one. I really never knew why.

I've been a level VIII commenter for well over a year. Today, I noticed I've been reduced to level VII, yet I comment on several hubs every single day. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know why my level may...

This is strange. I was a level 3 commenter and have been commenting a lot in the last week, hopefully considered quality comments, but I went down to a level 2 commenter today. Does anyone know if Hubpages changed their...

I love the new look of the hubs. The share buttons are in the right place (as evidenced by other popular blogs/site). My Hub Score has even gone up, although my Hubber Score continues to oscillate.What I don't...

An Accolade is an award for an achievement. But Commenter Level isn't an award for achievement - it's just a measure of your commenting activity at that point in time. In that sense, it's more like...

HELP! I'm new to Hubpages (4 days). I noticed that when people make comments on my hubs, there are little titles that say: level 2 commenter, etc. How can I tell what level I am at?

PROBLEM: Whenever I write a hub on a controversial subject, a number of people create new, fake hub accounts solely for the purpose of posting negative comments and feedback on my hubs and/or threatening me anonymously....
