How is it possible to have a high Hub score (90 as at time of asking this), and yet have only one Accolade. And yet I have seen people with a huge number of Accolades, but a score in the 70's. Should I be pleased or sorry?
Accolades are just like giving kids stickers on projects. They don't actually do anything but encourage people to keep doing more. A high HubScore takes more genuine effort to achieve and partially reflects writing quality and traffic. But really you could be successful on this site without paying much attention to either.
