    One of my Accolades seems to come and go of its own free will.  Its the little pink one with thumbs.

    Does this happen to other people.  It is quite annoying. Does not seem to matter what I do, it just comes and goes.  Its gone now and later today it will pop back in.  Anyone have a clue?

    that icon is for participation in the forums, if you take a break from the forums for a few days it can dissapear and will come back when you are active again.....jimmy

    Mine just left and never came back. I thought that it was a participation thing, but my wife is also registered on this site and her accolade remains despite inactivity. Maybe she uses the forums and I just don't know about it, but it remains a mystery for me.

    I have the same issue. I think participation in forum is more important than answering question. because when I participate in forum that accolade comes and when I am inactive it goes back. I also get annoyed with this. For me this is motivational factor. But sometimes hubpages moderator is beyond my understanding. Now I have learn to live with it. All the best.

    annoying!  The forums are not a place I like to hang out.  They get to be like the Rant and Rave session on Craigslist.... non-productive.

    you can get it 3 ways.

    1. Forums
    2. Voting
    3. Flagging inappropriate content.

    When you read other people's hubs and make meaningful comments and provide good insights it goes a long way to keeping those little thumbs up there.  Answer questions (like this one) and help people, ask intelligent questions......

    It's fun and very rewarding.
