Should HubPages have a "Hall of Fame"?
I mean a page that shows statistics with the top 10 most prolific hubbers, the top 10 most prolific question answerers, those with the most accolades, et cetera.
If all accolades are designed to improve to quality of HubPages then this can become a stimulant for some to contribute more to HubPages.
I absoultely think that Hubpages shlud have a Hall of Fame. The Top hubbers of all time would be great, especially if they wrote a "Hall of Fame" hub on how they made it into the Hall of Fame and what gave them inspiration. I agree with the last statement that it would be a bit of a reward to stimulate more well-rounded writing on the hubs. Seriously, who wouldn't want to be in the Hall of Fame of anything other than the Hall of Shame?
No, there are already enough accolades for top hubbers. They are hubbers like any of us after all. Hall of Fames are for retirees. If they decide to retire from HubPages, then maybe...
i think it would be a good idea,maybe not call it a hall of fame but something like that.That would certainly spur me on to work harder on certain hubs.
I see all sorts of anomalies here: 'Most Prolific' - would hardly encourage well thought out hubs with quality content. Rather, people would load up Hubpages with short, quickly written pieces, and quite likely of low quality.
Same with 'Question Answerers'. If we want people to really put their minds to answering questions well, we should not encourage them to do an awful lot in quick time just to get some sort of award. Answers will lack depth as a result.
I'm against a Hall of Fame. As it is, I notice that I chase those accolades a bit myself. For example, I made a deliberate play to bring my Questions Asked from 50 to 100 very recently.
So what did I do? Came up with a lot of inane questions which I knew people could quite easily answer. No, let's leave things as they are.
Interesting idea. I guess they kind of already have that though, in a way, don't they? I mean with the rating system. But the way you've outlined it would be a bit different.

I think Hubpages should encourage writers to be Niche writers by awarding an accolade when a person writes at least 25 Hubs in one niche (posted in one specific category or subcategory).The caveat is that at least 25 Hubs must be Featured in that category or subcategory. The Hubs cannot be...

When I look at the questions section of hubpages I see pages and pages of silly questions. A lot of the time, when I click on "unanswered" or "latest" I see that the same person has asked ten or so questions in a row. I suspect that in most cases this is because of the fact that...

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...

Hello fellow hubbers, I thought of an idea that why not give the hubpages elite team special type of accolades. Our Elite team do lot of work and they have many big responsibilities also! They have to go through all readers hubs and flag or vote up or start hopping these hubs! The elite team has to...
