Are Accolades useful?
Is earning more badges in hubpages useful?
If yes, how is it useful for us?
Not sure it affects anything (apart from your Hubber score, maybe). But I guess you could argue they're useful, since they give you something to aim for and work towards.
I think they are useful, because, we all love to be acknowledged and rewarded. It provides an incentive and a motivation to write more... I think it is really smart of the Hub Powers to praise various aspects of our work... They are like warm fuzzy's...
For me it was highly useful, inspiring and surely a confidence booster. When I started hubbing I was totally clueless on how to proceed. But my confidence improved eventually as and when I earned some Accolades. I thought my work is getting noticed and my writing is worth when some Accolades came in my way. In fact, the first such accolade was one for having got 100 viewership. Now I have got an accolade for 100K! So I am very much in favor of Accolades. It will surely help the freshers to perform well on this platform.
For the author, their only real use is the warm fuzzies you get when you see a new one. For the reader they can give some indication of the quality of the writer you are looking into. Other than that, they have no effect on traffic or earnings.

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 million. Can we please have it?

A new accolade was recently introduced regarding the number of featuring of hubs. It is a wonderful concept and everyone appreciated. Now I would like request the HP people for introducing a new kind of Accolade. If more than 60% of the hubs of a hubber is Featured, he can...

Are we allowed to request new accolades? Well of course we are, because I am about to do it right now. I would like to request the new accolade, %username% was banned from the forums for over 10 hours!It would be useful in many different ways, and not necessarily a bad accolade to have on your...

An Accolade is an award for an achievement. But Commenter Level isn't an award for achievement - it's just a measure of your commenting activity at that point in time. In that sense, it's more like Hubber Score. The trouble is that people think it is an award for achievement...
