How many HubPages "Accolades" do you have right now?
Are you working towards achieving any specific accolade? If yes, which one is it?
I don't know. I know the pissy persons that run the forum take two or three every time they make the random and silly political (and totally self serving) choice to ban me from the forums.
I couldn't care less though - I write for income here.
Accolades are electronic medals like Mick S said. They are there, but not why I write so no, I'm not working towards anything specific. Right now I have a dozen, but again I write because I enjoy sharing info and hope to earn. I don't write because I want accolades. Accolades make no difference in the hubbers I choose to follow or whose hubs I read. I doubt it makes little difference in who reads mine or follows me as well.
I follow for content not # of accolades. How many do I have?...Who knows I've never counted them lol
I guess for some they are nice but definitely don't play any role as to why I'm here. I'm pretty sure this is the case for a large number of hubbers.
Thanks for your response Express10 and Laura.
I have 12 but you'd never know from my hubberscore that keeps fluctuating, ha ha ha. But seriously, like the others said, accolades are not something you consciously strive to achieve except maybe number of hubs and hubviews. It's a nice surprise when one pops up. It's also an incentive that acknowledges your progress overall. That's not a bad thing. But it probably would decrease a lot of hubber stress and self-imposed competition if they were hidden.
I'm not really sure how many I have...but I know I want more. They may be meaningless like some people have responded prior, but it's all in fun...lighten up people and stop taking things so seriously.
Thanks for the question.
When I started writing on Hubpages I knew nothing of "accolades" so I wasn't too concerned about them; however, in my 6 weeks of being here I have earned 6. I honestly don't really care either way if I have the merit, but i do care what they stand for since it means I have gotten views and am active with others.
My goal of writing here was income and sharing things that interest me with the world (health, fitness, weddings, art, and cooking mostly).
The one I suppose that I care most about that I achieved was the Rising Star accolade when I was only at 3.5 weeks being a member here.
The following week I won the Rising Star again.
I was nominated for a third week but I did not get it that time, but I suspected I wouldn't since the hub chosen in the category was probably my "worst" hub for that category and mostly entailed links to information rather than in depth writing.
I do not know if I will be nominated again in the remaining 3 weeks that I can be nominated, but I will be surprised if so.
If I wanted to achieve a specific accolade it would have been that Rising Star that I achieved since it's rare and means that the community has recognized that I have potential as a new hubber - and as someone who has never done online article writing, I'm rather proud of that accomplishment.
I have seven and I actually do put getting more of them in my goals. I like to challenge my self by setting monthly goals like in one month I want to achieve 10 new hubs 1 more accolade and 5,000 views. It keeps me motivated, I write because I love to write but even still sometimes I need a little something extra to work for.
Yikes...a simple harmless question but so many angry responses! I have nine and I'm proud of that
Where are the angry responses? Only in your mind I think. On another question you accused me of being disrespectful, her you are suggesting lots of angry responses, perhaps you need to look at your intepretations.
That's the right attitude, good question Nehanatu86, and good answer Sansanqua. Thanks
Thanks for the supportive answer Sasanqua. That was sweet! Nine is really awesome... great going!
It is difficult to count. I just see my HubScore and if it falls below 80 I come again and see it is lifted. Accolades is the subject matter of HP. Let there we an accolade for retaining the Hub Score above 70 or 80 or 90 or perfect 100 for a continuous period of three months. But I have not yet completed my probation period of three months at HP.
Right now I have only 2. I am still relatively new here so am just beginning to understand things. I am hoping to soon get my 10 Hub award and am counting towards my 1000 views. I am moving slower than I wanted due to medical treatments!
I currently have eight.
While accolades are nice to have (and they look snazzy on my profile!) I'm not really working towards any one specifically right now, but I'd like to get the 100,000 view one sometime.
I have 11 accolades at this time, I'm not actually working at getting anymore accolades but it's nice to get them unintentionally. I've been with Hubpages 2 years and counting, I'm glad I found out about it when I did. Hubpages helped changed my life literally.
i have 11 accolades. I am now fight THE DAY badge. Really hard to get that badge!!
It only makes a good impression on other hubbers or visitors who view your profile and there is nothing else special.But i think it is nice thing by hub to show you your reward of how you are working on hubpages.
I have 9 so far. Accolades always make me happy but I do not make any conscious effort to achieve them. They happen if we are active here.
What makes me really happy and encourages me is the page views and comments because the figures show that so many number of people have actually read my writings.

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?

It seems that by some miracle I've won Rising Star not once, but twice! I am totally shocked, pleasantly surprised, and absolutely motivated to keep on writing. I won a few weeks ago on a hub about feeding dogs raw eggs, then again this week for a cookie recipe using coconut oil. At this point in...

So, are you just answering/asking questions to get an accolade? I am.
