Til ltoday afternoon I had the accolade of Level I commentor. But now Isee it removed. Anyone has any idea as to why that happened?
Comment accolades can disappear if you stop commenting. It's a trick to keep you involved with the site.
It's indeed not right that your accolade has disappeared. I have the Level 1 accolade on my profile and I haven't commented for a long time (not much spare time at the moment).
My commenter level went down a few notches too. I guess I don't comment as much as I used to. I liked the old hopper better, I used to read a lot of other people's new hubs that way. I wish they would go back to it, with names on it, so it's easier to find the ones you follow, and also to find new people you would like to follow. This way makes it harder to discover new hubbers that may interest you.
I agree with you on this one, Jean. I used to really enjoy the old hopper for just your reasons. I don't go there anymore.
Yes, if they returned to the old hopper, I think more people would comment again. It's the best way to see who's writing what, and you get to see who wrote it too. It's much more efficient. I'm glad you posted, I felt like I was being ignored because the issue is commenting levels, but there is a correlation between the hopper and who comments. I rarely go to somebody's pages to read their hubs, unless someone posts something here, or I want to see what a newbie is doing.
At times it happens and may reappear. I was Level VI once but it dropped to IV now. They do it analyzing our activities here. When we do engage very much, we get higher level accolade and when we are less active, it gets depromoted. Keep on doing more work here like reading other hubbs, leaving comments and be active in Forum discussion, etc. Then, you will get high rank.
You are correct. However the word you meant to say is "demoted."
Its very funny. Today i see the Level 1 commentator accolade back for me? Although I only replied for a few comments i received for my Hubs.
Happened to me too. I don't know about you, HubPages people... I'm rather busy on OTHER internet sites and don't have time to hang out here all day. Go to Dan W. Miller on Facebook, @DanWMiller & @VanillaGZilla on Twitter and I have a secret fb fan page/group of over 2,400. I have to be involved there too. I guess a high level commentator really has to get a life and expand their horizons. I'm pissed off that my piddly little Level I Commentator was taken away even though I am active in extra curricular activities weekly on HubPages. Can I have my damn bottom of the totem pole title back now, HubPages? Please, dammit?
Well, its a measure of recent/current commenting activity. So it seems logically that if, as you describe, you stop commenting it goes away.
I will surely ask and if i get any update will share with you all

How does Hubpages determine if you become a level 1,2,3, etc. commentator? Is it based on the number of hubs you comment on? The quality of your comments? If you comment on different people? Does anybody know? I'm just curious...

How does one move up as a commentator?I seem to have been a level 5 commentator for ages. I do comment regularly but do not move up. Any tips from higher graded commentators?

Why isn't there an accolade for best comments ever?Hubpages wants us to be more active here as well as writing hubs. Imagine the amount of comments that would be made if Hubpages awarded us for comments. I like commenting but it takes away from the time to write hubs. Writing hubs makes money....

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...

How do you view your commentator level, and does this level affect your standings at all?

Should the Commenting Accolade Rules be changed?Many Hubbers have a red accolade on their profile designating them as a "level __ commenter." Your rank seems to increase as you leave engaging comments on other Hubs and respond to ones on your own. All well and dandy, except the rank...
