I just noticed my commentor status declined. Didn't even get a message that I can fine advising me of such. In tooling around, I discovered this apparently occurs when one's participation in hubs declines. Oh, well, I'll have to scold real life and advise it to relent so I can have more Hubber time. Hmmm.
I wish they hadn't created that status. Commenting does NOTHING to help the commenter earn income on HubPages. A good comment may add a dash of fresh content to a Hub, but it doesn't contribute to the income of the Hubber.
So nobody should be made to feel bad if they're not commenting. Some people are social, some are not.
I think the only accolades I pay attention to at all is the one about how long I've been here, the one about how many featured Hubs I have at once and the one about how many times my Hubs have been read. I think they're more relevant to success.
I noticed that mine went down after I fixed some of my articles last week. The same thing happened to another person who updated their articles from Squidoo.
I'm trying to condition myself to view these aspects of HP as non-punitive. It's just that so many things in day-to-day living are just that - punitive. If my self esteem required that I excel at everything, I'd be a nut case.
Well that's new. What if I can't be here as often as I'd want to be? I mean, we all have work, families, and hobbies. -_- I can barely write any Hub lately.

I did read the FAQ about the scores but in the past I thought I read that some other things that were factors for the hubber score were time spent in forums and asking/answering questions, commenting, etc. Is that true?

I feel good when my score is going up. I feel important and get noticed by others.

My Hubber Score is dropping like a rock while my page views are at all time high. I've done two things recently... 1) Now I'm writing on a niche topic instead of various subjects and this strategy is working pretty well...

My Hubber score has stayed in one place for over a week. I have been on here a long time and I have never seen this. It usually moves up and down from day to day or from hour to hour. It's not moving at all.
