Do you think, it would be very encouraging to get accolades after completing eve

    Do you think, it would be very encouraging to get accolades after completing every 10,000 views?

    Absolutely!  Getting accolades gives the writers encouragement to continue and excel.

      Thanks Mimikat33, for your response!
      I agree with your views that getting accolades gives encouragement to writers.

    Definitely! Every little bit of incentive helps to motivate us to keep writing and feel a sense of accomplishment. It is such a long way from 10,000 to 100,000. I celebrated by myself when I hit 50,000. :-(

      Hi janshares!
      Congratulations  for hitting 50,000 views. Yes, it gives a sense of accomplishment and motivates further. Thanks for answering the question and sharing your views.

    I fully support this suggestion and have raised this issue many times.  Getting accolades  are wonderful and it boosts our confidence.  They can at least acknowledge when we hit 25000, 50,000 and 75,000. The present wait from 10,000 to 100,000 too long. It is even more longer when you hit 100K, as you need to wait till you achieve 10,00,000.  Here my suggestion would be giving an accolade on passing each 100 K. I hope HP will seriously consider this pray.  It will give an extra confidence to the well performing writers.

      Hi sunilkunnoth2012, for answering the question.
      You have some nice suggestions here. Accolades do encourage us to perform even better, write better. Thanks!

    Accolades after completing every 10,000 views is a great encouragement and I full support it. A writer  will  try harder to show their skills and achieve their merits

    Nope.  Only accolade I want from Hubpages is my pay.

      Pay will come only when you have a decent traffic! So accolade reflects your popularity dear.

    Personally I don't think it's necessary to tell everyone each time I make 10,000 views. To me it's like having other people keep track of my account. I think the way it is now is better for my privacy.

    No, not really. I joined HP to write. Accolades are just for show if you really think about it.

    I like accolades because I use my HubPages profile as a writing portfolio. I send potential clients to my profile page to take a look at what I've written. When they see the accolades it helps them feel more comfortable working with me. So, yes I like accolades. The more the better. I do think every 10,000 views would be too much. I like the idea more of having an accolade for every 100,000 views. That's significant and shows clients that people read what I write.

      Hi MarleneB!
      Thanks for your response. Even I like accolades and it is good to note that our profile page can be referred to as a writing portfolio. Thanks for sharing your opinion.

    I agree, it's so long to wait for the next one after 10,000! And it is good to have a bit of encouragement now and again, whatever your reasons for writing on the site.

      Thanks for your response to the question. I agree, although we are all here for the love of writing but  we do  need encouragement now and again.

    Not really. Although I wish there were more accolades for 5x.

    I have the million accolade but it's another 7 million views before I get the next accolade sad

    One at 50,000 would be nice! I think waiting for 100,000 after 10,000 is discouraging but what is an accolade . You can't even print them off . They are just air.
