Yesterday, I received the "Level IV Commenter" accolade. Today, it is gone.
Additionally, a couple months ago, I received the "Great HubPages Citizen" accolade, and the next day it was gone.
Why are my accolades disappearing? I can understand how I can suddenly become an 'unworthy' of the 'great citizen' award, but how can the comments thing disappear? Are the comment that I made, which were previously considered 'good' comments, now considered bad for some reason?
Anybody else missing accolades?
Out of curiosity, I checked some of people I follow that I know to be heavy commenters and they are all missing their commenter accolade. Mine too is missing.
Just downright rude, impolite and inconsiderate isn't it? See my forum uh LEGITIMATE GRIPE I posted recently.
This has happened to me on occasion. I've invariably found them under my keyboard. After their nap, they will return. Leastwise that's how it's been with mine.
I think some of my are gone to, but really don't care since they serve no purpose.
I actually just noticed (due to this post) that my Level 1 Commenter seal-y thingie is gone too. Weird. Maybe they're getting rid of the commenter accolades?
If that is the case, I find it strange that they would not announce it prior to doing so. Then again, this would not be the first instance of HubPages changing features without announcement.
And because of your post, I also went and checked. Yep, my awesome Level I status comment accolade has also taken a hike. I knew I should have put a GPS ankle bracelet on the thing, but I just never got around to it. Lately, HP has been doing stuff every week here these days.
hmmm...gps. That's an idea. I want my nifty little sealy back. it was pretty and served no purpose at all - but it did give me that warm fuzzy feeling.
Maybe that was the beer, though.
Warm and fuzzy is good...
Congrats on the rising star one, btw. First one of those I've come across.
My newly earned Level 1 Commenter accolade was gone when I checked this morning, too. I'm pretty sure I still only write comments when I've read a hub thoroughly and have something to say about it, so I'm going to assume we're missing these because of a glitch rather than a change in quality. It's good (for lack of a better word) to know that it's not just me!
Mine is missing too. I make lots of comments and have been commenting quite a bit lately, so it is doubtful that I dropped below 0.
I wonder if they removed it because they don't want to encourage us to comment so much on other hubs. Maybe if we comment on someone's hub who isn't doing well, we are getting inferior backlinks. Or we are providing inferior links to the better hubs. Maybe they just want us to spend more time writing quality hubs.
Those sound like accolades that depend on maintaining a certain level of activity. If you dip below that, they go away.
not only are they back, but I'm now a level 2 commenter, instead of a 1. Go figure. Promotion.

An Accolade is an award for an achievement. But Commenter Level isn't an award for achievement - it's just a measure of your commenting activity at that point in time. In that sense, it's more like Hubber Score. The trouble is that people think it is an award for achievement...

I am very upset that "the" PoeticPhilosophy has now lost his forum-help accolade. I mean, this is absurd. I am a fair and great member of this community and I demand to know why this accolade was removed. I have seen other members who have not even been active for months and they still...

I think I've lost one accolade. Does Admin remove the accolade if you are no longer actively engaged in that category?

Does Hubpages take back accolades?I had the Level 4 Commentor Accolade, and now it's gone. Honestly, I don't really understand the commentor status in the first place, and I'm not terribly concerned about it - I comment on well-written and interesting hubs everyday, but I don't exactly track my...
