I wouldn't purchase any of them because that takes the fun out of earning them. If I had to choose one though, probably the one million views - I hope to hit that though eventually no purchase required .
I would not be interested in purchasing any accolades. I don't really place a very high importance on them. They are kind of nice but if they could be purchased it would undermine the sense of achievement that they intend to represent. That is just my two cents.
I wouldn't purchases any accolades. Though my accolades are very small, I get a sense of satisfaction knowing that I've earned them. I don't need to show off by making people believe I've accomplished things that I really haven't.
None. I was apparently a "bad boy" once, so they took some of my accolades away. Since then, I stopped displaying them on my profile (and quit the forums!). If they can be taken away on a whim by a staff member who got the wrong end of the stick, then they're worthless. I would encourage everyone to do the same. They're used by staffers to treat us like children - "here, have a nice pat on the head" or "you've been a bad boy, I'm taking away your prize!". It's demeaning, so I showed them just how meaningless I think their accolades are. Now the ad on my profile appears higher up the page... win win!
I didn't know accolades could be taken away once earned... I can see how it would be possible to lose a page view accolade if you deleted hubs and that reduced your total page views to below the amount needed for the accolade.
This was the commenter accolade and another I can't remember. It was because someone on the forums baited me into an argument and I had the temerity to reply in anger. The staffer removed accolades from both of us. What have I learnt? Don't argue
I'm assuming this is a hypothetical question. I would never actually purchase an accolade because accolades are earned, not purchased. But, I'll play... If I could purchase a HubPages accolade, then I'd purchase the 1Million Views accolade. How much would I pay? Well, the assumption is that money is no object. So, I'll pay... $1,000,000.00!
I would be willing to pay for the accolade of Answered the Most Stupid Questions, wait they don't have that accolade, my bad. Then again perhaps answering the most stupid questions is a payment itself.
After all it takes some creative thinking, the ability to lower your mentality to the level of those asking the stupid questions and above all having the dull wit of a retarded fourth grader, not at all qualities most humans aspire too.
Let's see a million page views or having the accolade of answering the most stupid questions . . . gee that is a tough one!
I prefer to get it the right way. I would like to get it by surprice for following the rules of hubpages. I would like to get one for keeping other writers busy. When I ask my questions. I would like to get it if I deserve it.
As with many others here, none, I like to earn my accolades. However, I am wondering what happened to my earned "apprenticeship" status. I was accepted back in Spring and still not on the program. Disappointing and one of the reasons I haven't been an active hubber recently, demotivated:-(
Did you contact staff to ask about why? They've suspended the program now for awhile, but all the material is in the learning center. It still stinks if you were accepted though and didn't participate!
Is there a reason we can't add 5 million to the accolades? I know this has been asked before, but I can't recall anyone from HP acknowledging the question. It is such a distance between 1 million and 10...
When someone posts a hub like "How to be succesful on Hubpages" I look at their total page views accolade to see if they really are succesful. If that person has hundreds of hubs but only 1000 page views...
