Missing Accolade, Very Upset.

  1. PoeticPhilosophy profile image80
    PoeticPhilosophyposted 4 years ago

    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 have this forum-accolade so what's the deal? Does the hubpages staff not like me? Obviously not, since they decided to ignore all my requests at removing a obscene critter from hubpages. Anyways, I do a great job at hubpages and bring a lot of views, I probably solved the case of the missing traffic and I want to know why my accolade is missing. Thanks.

      Lol.  I mean - oh dear - but also lol.  Maybe you just need to clean your screen?  I remember losing one of mine and it was under a bit of dried on vomit.

        Mmmh! Tasty treats and hidden accolades!
        But where did the vomit come from?

      The FAQ has information related to each of the accolades.
      As @writinglover mentioned, some accolades are permanent and others can be temporary.

      You are a legend, at least in your own mind.  How dare anyone not respect your awesomeness.  Where would the site be without you?   Seriously, without you, these forums would probably completely cease to exist.  How dare HP staff not jump at your orders!

      Maybe it's just poetic justice.
      Either way, Soulja Boy called, he wants his accolade back.

    Poetic, various accolades come and go. If you're not active in the forums, you're definitely going to lose it. They are NOT permanent. Sorry to break the news but that's how it is. -_-

    accolades are equivalent to a gold star for a nursery school child.  They mean nothing. They do nothing. They don't earn anything.

    I don't think I've ever gotten this accolade. Good to know that it is not permanent though.

      Thank you for the trophy.
      But I deserve a better, like gold.
      Atleast that's what I'm told,
      I'm a man north-up from the folds.

      If you know what I mean,
      I don't stream,
      Within the deem's
      Of most's prejudicing dreams.

      I just take what I give,
      Accomplish what I bliss,
      That is what deserves me.
      The trophy I lay out within golden-glims

    I cannot help but think how this might have ended up had it been a posted here a couple of years ago.

    I hardly ever check, so I wouldn't know if I lost one due to living life in the real world.

    I still can't shake the notion that this is actually the best trolling job evaaar. It can't be real.

    Can it?

      Too be called a troll,
      Would upset me on my roll.

      If you seen the past posts you'd see,
      I only defended my deem.

      From a contemplating scene,
      All these men's... Upstruck deem's.
