Don't get me wrong, I review Hubs and offer suggestions because I enjoy participating in the community, not for gaining some small badge on my profile. However, I am curious at what point the accolade for helping new Hubbers arrives. I'm not keeping count, but I'd guess I've reviewed somewhere around 30 Hubs over a few months, and I'd like to imagine my suggestions are useful.
I also wonder how HubPages keeps track of who is aiding new Hubbers; any insights are welcome.
Heck, I don't know if I've got that accolade. Never occurred to me to look. They're just pixels
I wasn't even aware that accolades were given for this, nor would I expect to get one. You either want to help people out or you don't!
TT2 you have the two thumbs award too! It's on your profile page.
Thanks. I never really noticed.
Looked, didn't see it. Where did you see it?
The two thumbs symbol appears and disappears depending how active you have been in the period measured (previous 24 hours? 7 days? I'm not sure). When I made my original comment you had the symbol, but now it's vanished. When it reappears (which it will do I'm sure ) it will be after the symbol for the number of questions you have answered.
This enters a discussion many Hubbers are torn on--temporary accolades. It does reduce inclination to strive towards them knowing they'll eventually be removed unless you continuously maintain the work.
Accolades are only accolades, but it can be upsetting to have something earned taken away.
To be honest, Jeremy, few experienced hubbers care about stuff like that. It's so unimportant in the grand scheme of things. I only looked at mine yesterday because you mentioned it. I guess I hadn't looked at them in ... well, years. If someone is here to earn accolades then good luck to them. Most are here to write and earn.
That is really weird! I never looked so wasn't aware...and now I "won't look" again lol! Just curious is all. Thanks.
As far as I know the accolade for Most Helpful Hubber no longer happens. It was part of the annual Hubber awards and the winners were chosen by fellow Hubbers.
It was an honor not an entitlement.
Just to clarify - there are two different accolades.
The first has a symbol of two thumbs. Many Hubbers have this one including raggededge and myself. You achieve this by "contributing to the community by helping new users in the forums, voting and/ or flagging inappropriate content for our moderators."
The second is a rare beast, the "Most Helpful Hubber" and is one of the annual Hubbie Awards. You can read about the 2016 awards here. https://blog.hubpages.com/2016/08/22/vo … ie-awards/
Aw, if I had a balloon, you just pricked it
The two thumbs one is also an honor - YAY - (just not such a big one).
HP Staff definitely notices and really appreciates all the help you offer to new users, theraggededge.
Jeremy, you offer excellent advice and improvement tips to the we Hubbers.
You have an accolade from me

They took away my 'craving attention' award. And my 'easily pleased by gold stars' award, too. Then they abolished the entire 'posting while drunk' category, which was a setback.

A new accolade was recently introduced regarding the number of featuring of hubs. It is a wonderful concept and everyone appreciated. Now I would like request the HP people for introducing a new kind of Accolade. If more than 60% of the hubs of a hubber is Featured, he can...

I went to a Hubber's subdomain page and there are no Accolades. The Hubber has over 100 Hubs, but not a single accolade - not even the one for having 10 featured Hubs! Why is this?

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...

Is there a reason we can't add 5 million to the accolades? I know this has been asked before, but I can't recall anyone from HP acknowledging the question. It is such a distance between 1 million and 10 million. Can we please have it?

OK, on the Commenter;leaving insightful and engaging comments Accolade there is a "grade/ranking level number.What does this mean and what is Good and what is bad!In other words..whose comments are insightful/engaging and who of us should just keep quiet? lol

Are we allowed to request new accolades? Well of course we are, because I am about to do it right now. I would like to request the new accolade, %username% was banned from the forums for over 10 hours!It would be useful in many different ways, and not necessarily a bad accolade to have on your...
