What do the level numbers I am seeing in the comments on hubs mean?
I am seeing "level 1 commenter" "level 4 commenter" etc in the comments. Where did it come from and what is the purpose of it?
I believe you get ranked higher when you comment, or in other words the more you comment the higher your rating goes
I wrote a hub about this. :

It's really no different from the accolade that gives you a comment level. It just makes it more obvious when you answer questions.
When you spend a lot of time in a social network or Blog there is a Google cookie or a browser cookie gathering information about how long you spend on a website. This information is used by Google Panda to determine how popular a site is. The longer you spend on a site the chances are that the search algorithms sees it as more popular or more relevant .. so the logic is that the more time you spend on a site - the lower the bounce rate is going to be for that site, the more popular the site will be, the more page views the site has and ultimately the more successful.
It is beneficial for Blog owners to introduce "adding friends" and "commenting" with rewards to higher levels because they know that the more time they can get people to spend on their site, the higher their rankings will be.
This is the real purpose. It is purely technical and aimed at defeating Panda.
I think this rank is to justify the commentator and help approving comments.

I just saw two new editing notices on my dashboard but when I went to the hubs it looks more like they've been affected by some kind of bug rather than an edit. The comments have been turned into bullet point lists and it looks terrible.https://soapboxie.com/social-issues/why …...

My top two hubs have gotten quite a few views but zero comments. Does this mean that I am only getting views from sites other than hubpages or what?

What do you do when someone leaves a mean comment on your Hub?

Is anyone else unhappy with Hubpages ranking commentators? Level 1, level 2, etc?It makes me feel that, simply because I have better things to do much of the time, my input and feedback when I choose to comment on an article is less important than someone of a higher level. Shouldn't they compared...

I looked around the forums and HP Blog for info on this and found nothing...just went to answer comments on my Hubs, and I'm seeing commenters highlighted in yellow with a designation of a level (5, 7, what, 1 out of 10?) What's this about?
