Why has my commentator level been reduced to level 7 from level 8.
Who decides these things anyway? Is there a set criteria. If so what is it, so that new hubbers can follow if they wish.
The level is based on the last 9 months of commenting activity only. If you did a lot of comments ten months ago, it would no longer be counted.
Wrylit's answer may well be accurate, but when a hubber has concerns of this sort (that involves things we, ourselves do not control) I would want the answer from HP Moderators, to know for certain.
BTW, most of these "mysterious" numbers are auto-monitored. Only a few things are a result of the actions of a human.
I don't blame you one bit for being concerned about this. Send a question to HP. It takes them a while to respond, but eventually, they do.
There might possibly be an answer to your question in the learning center if you feel like searching.... Good luck, Michael
Thanks, I will give it a look and if I don't find anything, I will ask the hubpages team. Seems like one step forward two steps back at the moment.
I know what you mean, Michael. Very discouraging. (not to mention unwarranted!)
Down to 5 and falling. Do I care. Not a jot. lol
I often wonder too how the commenter level is determined. I was just promoted from Level III to Level IV roughly three days ago. I haven't been all that active on HubPages in the last 48 hours, and I now have been stripped of all commenter status, not even Level I.
Ironically, all of a sudden, my Level IV status is back. Indeed, an interesting mystery. I personally believe it has something to do with an algorithm buried deep in HubPages, one that members will never know!

Hey hubbers, would want to know how to achieve that level status? And the mechanism behind it, would love to hear from you?
