I'm not planning on deleting anything, I'm just curious. If I had one hub that went viral and got me 100,000 views, earning me an accolade, would I still have that accolade if I deleted it?
I'm not sure about the accolade but I know the stats for the hub's page views will disappear. It had happened to me before. In your case, your total page views will be 100,000 less!
Yes you will lose the accolade and the count. If it went viral, it could do so again if shared in the right place. I hope you've shared it on Pinterest and Facebook yourself also. Give it more time and it could do well on Google also.
As @DrMark1961 mentioned, some accolades are based on published Hubs, so yes it can have an effect on views and therefore on accolades.
"Hub views for currently published Hubs (1,000, 10,000, 100,000, 1,000,000, 10,000,000, and 100,000,000)"
Hi Amy, you would also lose the accolade. Several people have mentioned it in the forums in the past. They are usually sorry about deleting hubs afterwards.
Thanks guys. Just to let you know, I don't actually have a featured hub that's gone viral, this was simply theoretical. You never know, I might need to know this in the future

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, 25,000, 50,000, 75,000, 100,000 views, with the all of other levels remaining...

I think you need a badge that is awarded for individuals Hub achievements, such as: if one Hub receives over 5,000 views, that's quite an achievement - there should be a badge for that.

Do you think, it would be very encouraging to get accolades after completing every 10,000 views?

When someone posts a hub like "How to be succesful on Hubpages" I look at their total page views accolade to see if they really are succesful. If that person has hundreds of hubs but only 1000 page views accolade, well....If that hubber has an accolade for 100,000, he may have 900,000...

Which among the accolades do you aspire the most?It's sharing time! There are a lot of accolades to merit here in Hubpages, which among them do you really want to achieve?

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