What is the reason some hide their accolades?
I just don't understand why someone would hide them. My thought is be proud of them. What am I missing?
People can still be proud of their accolades without revealing them to everyone else.
Some users feel they are too much like a game, driving people to earn them just for the sake of having them. Others don't feel their accolades are anyone's business. Others feel it reveals too much about themselves to strangers. And some site members have said they think the accolades aren't genuine measures of success.
It depends on ones perspective, as Relache has stated, people do choose to hide their accolades.
As Relache said, it's because a lot of us write pointless questions and forum posts just for the sake of "shinies". Don't worry, I'm not trying to imply anything here.
Furthermore, others feel like the Hubber in question is showing off and it fills up their feed with annoying announcements. They don't really do anything or prove much, seeing as most are just out of totals. I can understand if it was something like getting "Hub of the Day" or the "HubNugget" accolades, but other than that, there's not really much to boast about.
So TL;DR, some people just think it's boastful. But me? I like seeing what people have earned - you don't learn a lot about the Hubber, but it's something ^^
I feel that my acolades are for me. I feel that I am bragging about something that is not that much of an accomplishment. Also how many times I've been read really does not make me a better writer or more or less interesting that is pesonal perspective of the reader. So to look at someone's acolades and judge their writing is not always fair, just as we are told to never judge a book by it's cover. Some of us are just more quiet about our accomplishments than others.
When I first started I didn't know what they were, so I chose to hide them until I started noticing everyone else's showing on their page. It might be that some people might not be aware of them.

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?

I have been on this one conspiracy site informally for over 5 years. I usually go there to get the latest news before the MSM does (I'm a news hound)So I am about to take the plunge and sign up for formal membership there and I am thinking about using my first name like I do here at HubPages along...

What do you feel when you get accolades in Hubpages?For me, I become overjoyed. I don't know, it just feels great to earn those accolades. How about you?

What milestones have you set for your hubbing?I decided to write hubs as a way to relieve tension. Just sitting down and writing something that is not class related is relaxing. Then I decided that I really like what I'm doing so I started to set goals for myself. Increasing my followers from 18 to...

Why is that some hubbers hide the display of their Accolades? What prompt them to do so? Also, can we hide accolades partially means certain to show and certain to display?
