What are the algorithms for giving accolades on hubpages?
I have come across a hubber with only 3 hubs in his one year membership here and getting the accolade of "his hubs start great discussions in the comments". I, by chance, happened to visit his account as his topics were on social issues. I went through one hub and, even though the sentences were not clear, had good content. So, I thought of commenting and to my surprise, all the 9 comments on his hub were his own. So, I stopped commenting and went through the other two hubs. Those hubs also contained only his comments. How can it be possible? And he earned the accolade by his own comments.
This is very unusual. It just shows that HubPages has all sorts of glitches. I suppose it is just too much for them to do manually. Impossible really.
Yes, there are some glitches like this which need to be set right by hubpages staff and mechanism. There needs to be some tool to detect this kind of self commenting which may be solely aimed at increasing views and traffic through malpractices.
I hope Hubpages will be seeing this and clarify the matter.
Well... It must run on an automatic program... it's understandable but you get those kind of injustices. Anyway do you earn anything from accolades or is it just a nice "stamp"? if it's just a nice stamp no much harm comes from it...
