Variable Commentator Level
Why does one's commentator level go up and down? Who makes the decision and what factors are taken into consideration?
I can't answer EITHER the question or sub-questions, so you can tell how boring my morning has become. I pay little attention to these numbers, but there seems no logic fueling them. I was assigned up to level 4 at warp speed, but I've been a level 5 forever--so go figger!
I have the same question. I was at level 7, but was out of action for a couple of weeks and dropped to level V and now I am at Level Vi.
Also, I have an accolade that shows 50 correct answers. I either have 100 or possibly 99. People do not seem to follow through on this. I think some are helping their friends out. So I just do not think Hub Pages is paying attention to the details like they once did.
Thanks for your answer, Larry. If it's all computor based analysis, maybe we should not worry about it too much.
I think you are right. I have been pretty active the past 10 days and my score dropped one point, probably because one of my Hubs took a jab at some of the new HP "suggestions" for quality Hubs. They held up a hub claiming it had duplicated material.
I'll venture a guess, but I'm not certain it will help. My comment level has gone down since they began the accolade. I was originally a level 7, but I think I'm down to 5 now. When the accolade was awarded to me in the beginning, I was a very frequent commenter. I've slid off since then. I think that the level has to do with not only the number of all time comments, but the frequency of commenting over our time at HP. Does that make any sense?
Thanks for your feedback, folks. If a lot of the statistics in HubPages are generated by computer algorithms, one should not place too much personal feeling into them, I suppose. Also, with so many millions of comments/questions/answers to deal with one would be lucky to get a real human assessing your input.
It does not really worry me and, although a little bit of my ego would like to "stay on top," as it were, I am fine just contributing as I do. People can "take me or leave me."
There are a couple of related questions cropping up in the little boxes at the end of my question. They are worth following up and are quite helpful.
my commentator level was stuck at level 7 since April 2013 until. I am active in answering questions, hubs and forums, maybe wasn't active for a day, once a week due to unforseen events, but still stuck. I think it got to do with the hubber activity. HP makes the decision to decrease or increase your level. I am yearning to reach level 8, though....
These ratings are based on your involvement here. It does analyse how much comments you make regularly. The fine point is that if you keep consistency you can achieve higher lever but please note that once you got a higher commentator level, you should stay on there. Some people stops there so it naturally affects their level. It is good to degrade (by HP) if you become inactive because just to get an accolade people actively comment on and after gaining that they stop the practice. Consistency pays. Just note that.
Sometimes, other parts of life, illness, family illness, injury, vacations, work, etc, can cause a person to be inactive for a period of time. Should he be punished for that. I do not understand how commentator levels are assigned. Some are too high.
