Where do we go now in the forums to show off? (1,000,000 views!)

    People used to boast about success in the hubbers hangout - By the way, I strongly disapprove of showing off in the forums.

    Anyway, I just noticed I have 1,004,033 views (but my accolade still says 100,000).  Perhaps I should post this a fault?  I guess it just takes time for the system to update?

    I'm therefore a HubPages millionaire (or would be if I got $1 per view!).  I know, I'm amazing!  But please don't make a fuss!  That is if anyone is still left here (I know some of you keep sneeking off to Wizzley!)    smile

      What a cool post on so many levels.

      First, congrats! I've been here for as long as you and have yet to hit the 500,000 mark (although it's getting close).

      Second, I didn't realize until your post that the hangout seems to be missing. Oh well, change happens.

      Third, I haven't defected, yet, although I've been putting my eggs in other baskets.

      Finally, I don't like showing off anywhere, but glad you did, so I'm following suit. wink

        They got dumped into the Hubpages community which is why you see it at like 50k+ threads.

    I'm on the way towards 100k. I expect a badge when I get there, something I can wear out round the town. Congrats on your one millllllion views. Imagine all of those people that have clicked standing in front of you right now, while you assume your regular writing position, which for me is drunk and in my pants, yours may vary. Do you think they'd like you if they saw you like that? Who cares!

    Thank you for sharing this joyous occasion with us.
    Your success is our success as a community!

    Awesome!  Congratulations, Rik Ravado!  I hope an HP staff stops by and do something about your One Million accolade.  Fair is fair.  You worked really hard (you did, right?) to reach and surpass this huge milestone.  You should have gotten it by now.  Whassup Hubpages?

    Congratulations, Rik!  Your 1 Million accolade is now showing on your profile.  Woohoo!  I'm happy for you. smile

    Well done.! I am still  struggling on 150K and it is hard.... to hit a million is beyond my wildest dreams- very well done to you- I think if I ever get to that I will be shouting from the roof tops

    Again, very very well done

    Thank you all for being so supportive!  I still love HubPages and have no plans to desert yet!  As Rosie reports, HubPages have now updated by accolade to a 1,000,000.  For what its worth, number of views is not a mark of quality.  Most of my views come from a very small number of hubs on popularist topics, while 80% of my hubs get very little traffic at all.

    Here is wishing HubPages (and those of us left onboard) a smoother voyage in the next few months smile
