There should be an accolade you can earn to bump your 60/40 to 70/30?

        Thanks Suzanne, I'm sure others have already thought of this concept, any thoughts on how one could attain this hypothetical accolade?

      That would be nice. What would you have to do to earn such accolade?

        I'm not sure, I've only been here a couple of months.  Although, I was shocked I was not a recipient of the highly prestigious Hubbie Award, to my dismay there isn't a category for most envious Hubber.  There are times I can't even write, because I'm too busy reading other Hubber's work!  I call it "Hubber-envy-writer's-block"

        I would rather differ to more seasoned Hubbers, such as yourself.. big_smile

        I read in the HP blog that this is already available to all hubbers who have earned the 1billion accolade.

    1 billion?  Has someone already reached that goal?  How much does it bump up?  Thanks for your informing us, DrMark!

      Sorry, I was only joking. I have 1million, and it took a few years to do it. Some others have more than 10 million. No one even has 100million yet.
      1 billion is so far in the future that HP could promise a 99/1 split and never worry about actually having to give it away.

        I have almost reached 100 million. I really need to sign up for adsense at some point.

          DrMark1961posted 3 years agoin reply to this

          The good news is that if you reach 100 million, without signing up for adsense, HP gives you an automatic 25 point boost in your Hubber score. It is permanent---you can read more about it at the HP blog.

            I don't really want the money anyway. Fame and fortune are meaningless to me.
            It's all about the hubber score.

              I am just in it for the fame. Unfortunately, Marisa Wright thinks that most visitors to HP think that we are all just a bunch of staff writers with tiny little avatars.

    MARK!!!!  You got me real good!  My gullibility and nativity in this matter reflects my newbie Hubber status.

      I appreciate you best for your nativity not too mention bringing forth a new Hubbie Awards Category: Most Envious Hubber - brilliant.

    I agree with this idea. In fact InfoBarrel have something like this. I believe you can go up as high as 90%.

    I AM the "Most Envious Hubber" I challenge any other Hubber to out-envy me!  Even ask "information-ninja" Marisa, every time I voice my envy for her, she completely ignores me, and I love that about her!  Praise should always be met with complete silence.

  7. Michael Kismet profile image95
    Michael Kismetposted 3 years ago

    I neglected to mention in my first few weeks on Hubpages, Marisa was the only one that replied to my questions.  No mater how grand or miniscule the query, she would always give concise information.

    1. Sed-me profile image81
      Sed-meposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      She is always great to help others and give great info. It's mostly over my head so I usually just sit back and admire those who actually know what they're doing.

    This forum post gave me an idea for a hub, and I just finished publishing "The Most Envious Hubber Award"  I mentioned a few Hubbers in my article, is that frowned upon?

    I mentioned MarisaWright, Relache, Jimmythejock, MarkEwbie, WryLilt, and jpherj48(Paula)

    If you'd rather not have your name referenced, for whatever reason, I will sadly comply.  hmm
