I don't know and I honestly couldn't care less. Accolades are only there to feed the Hubber's ego, they don't do anything to improve your readership or earn extra income. I don't even know which ones I've got.
Yes. It was the hubber community accolade. It seemed to appear and disappear at random for a couple of months, regardless of my hub-hopping or comments in the forums. But it's been back now for a few weeks without disappearing. I suppose I've hit the required activity level for it to stick around, if not permanently, then at least for a while.
I immediately thought of an excellent answer to that. Namely to check a certain person's profile. If that accolade existed, it would definitely show up there. However, it's too early in the year to start another cat-fight.
You know, I've done some HubHopping lately, which I suppose is part of that accolade, but I am having a hard time because I really feel that I'm too damn critical.
I see lots of stuff that I just skip by - it isn't good, but it isn't really bad and I just can't figure out what to say. Then there are all these "business card" hubs that are plainly promoting a business and again they aren't necessarily "bad" but I'm not sure they belong HERE.
I see so much stuff that I really think is substandard, but I'm not sure it is by HP's standards and as they refuse to give much guidance on those issues (and yeah, I know that's hard to do) I get discouraged and quit.. I don't want to add to staff's burden by flagging dozens and dozens of hubs that they are going to say are fine.. aarrgh!
I feel exactly the same way about hub hopping. If a hub is obviously spun I will flag it, but otherwise, if it's not engaging or if it's written poorly, I don't know what to do and just go to the next one. I don't have the heart to vote a hub down. I end up skipping many of them.
I kinda like the accolades... they are something to keep me motivated. Within the next couple weeks I should be getting the one year, the 50 hubs, and the 10k views ones. It gives me a little glow... (I'm pathetic... I know)
I have one that has been coming and going for the entire time I have been here. I have finally decided, after extensive investigation, that it has to do with whether the hubpage computer is in a good mood or a bad mood.
Are we allowed to request new accolades? Well of course we are, because I am about to do it right now. I would like to request the new accolade, %username% was banned from the forums for over 10 hours!It would be useful...
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,...
If so, why and would that entail being given a reason?I ask as I had an accolade for helping new hubbers and highlighting bad posts, but now it's gone -- the "" sign.Yesterday it was there and today it...
