MyWebs has answered 10 requests - NOT

    I noticed in my activity stream and accolades that it says I have answered 10 requests.

    If that means that I have written 10 hubs in response to user 'Questions' I'm quite sure that is wrong. The real number would be 1, nowhere close to 10.

    Even if you count the hub I wrote for the Question that contained a link in it and was deleted before I ever wrote the hub, the total would only be 2 in reality. I doubt the automated system is that smart though.

    I would prefer to be given credit for something that I have actually achieved, otherwise it is meaningless.

      are u sure it is how many hubs you made from questions asked?...i think it would include how many questions you answered to , irrespective whether u created hub on it or simply answered the question...

        I'm pretty sure this is what it means. If it was just for answering questions I would have reached 10 long ago.

    Try clickin on 'Answers' tab in the interaction column of your my account page.  You will see how many answers you have made.

      I count 43 answers with 2 of those being a hub I wrote in response to a question that was asked. I had forgot about one hub I wrote.

      The question is: Does this milestone / accolade only apply to hubs written in response to a question, this is how I understood it to work, or any old answer?

      I long ago passed the 10 mark if everything counts, at least 2 months ago. So I thought this must be a mistake.

        this award on accolade is scale based..as soon as ur 43 becomes 50 , you would have award with 50 in number...till then u wuld have 10 number..

        coming to answering...i think answer is answer whether u make hub out of it or simply answer it..for counting hub , they have another award in accolade..

        this is what i think...

        May be a glitch then Mywebs.  Though I am fairly sure that even if you answer a question without making a hub, it will count as answers.  Basically, if it shows in your answer tab, it would be counted as an answer.  I have even gone through the help section and though they have not mentioned directly but I think that's what they are implying.  Here is link: http://hubpages.com/faq/#questions

        I would also like to clear my doubts.

          If you look at this: http://hubpages.com/faq/#hubtivity

          "Hubs Published From Your Requests" ( I think this implies only hubs count for both)

          The way that is worded would seem to imply that only hubs created in response to a request would count for where it says:

          "Requests Answered"

          This is why I assumed only hubs counted.

        I recently made a change so that now your short answers are being counted. Thus, the system just now noticed that you have written over 10 answers, and that's why it has only now appeared in your Hubtivity. It's nothing to be concerned about. When you reach 50 questions answered (through some combination of Hubs and short answers), you will receive the 50 questions answered accolade.

    Yes, I have the same thing on my profile - and I have not ever answered even one request or made a hub about one, unless as piscean says it's sbout answering questions, which I sometimes do. My profile decided last night that I had suddenly earned this award - it wasn't there in the morning yet I didn't answer any questions either yesterday.

      I have answered more than ten questions, I can only assume it has to be that.

    Actually, I have just realised that it now does say 'answered ten questions' and not requests on my profile - I am fairly positive that is not how it was worded yesterday.

      You are observant! We started using the word 'question' instead of 'request' a while ago, but I failed to change the wording in Hubtivity until just yesterday.

    MyWebs, your profile now says 'answered ten questions' as well, it must have been a change to the system.

    It counts hubs answering questions as well as short answers. It's misleading.

    I think hubmob also counts as answering requests.

    Fawntia mentioned she was changing that accolade to also include short answers in the stickied thread at the top of this forum

    I believe it was a direct response to Whitney (her mentioning it, not her changing the factors)

      That's right. I recently made a change so that short answers (non-Hub answers) to questions are counted when milestones and accolades are awarded.
