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?
That would certainly be nice and definitely more motivating lol
This sounds like a great idea, Solaras. I'm adding it to our project to-do list.
Yes, that would be a good accolade to have. Reaching the 5 million accolade is certainly some achievement.
With 5 million views, I would be looking for a better compensated role outside of HubPages. Accolades be damned, that's a helluva thing to put on your resume. Successful Youtube personalities would give anything for that many views.
You can't put it on your resume, if the accolade does not exist.
You don't put little images of accolades on resumes. The little accolade symbol is worthless. The achievement itself is worthy of going on a resume. It's not like the 5 million views doesn't count if there's no "accolade". C'mon. Use some common sense.
LOL I could put 100 million views on a resume. Having the accolade is proof I am not a liar.
No, screenshooting your account stats is proof. All you do on a resume is write "I received 5 million views on a revenue-sharing website with X amount of articles published". If someone asks you for proof, send them a screenshot of your stats.
I vote for all of the 5s. 50,000, 500,000 and 5 million would all be great.
I also want to see another accolade between 10 and 100. I do not think I will live long enough to reach that next accolade.
LOL 10-100 I can remember thinking 100K to 1 Million was unreachable. And now to know $11K a month is happening. WOW. So much to reach for!! I am in for all of the 5s too. I lobbied for a 500K back in the day. I think they should increase the number of goals; traffic and CPM vary, pageview goals are a steady upstream.
Good Idea! At the moment it's logarithmic, so the next milestone after 10,000,000 is 100 million (has anyone got that far?).
A frequency distribution graph of views would also be nice, showing the numbers of writers in each group from 0 to 10 million views.

Over the weekend I reached 2.5 million views, which is 1/4 of the way to the next accolade. It took 3 years to get to the 1 million accolade, and one year, thanks to the niche sites, to add another 1.5 million. I think 5 million views should be the next accolade. Any chances of giving us a closer...

I know that there is no "average" amount of time, but I am just curious. I see plenty of old-timers here who have that accolade. I have been here over 4 years, and I am about a third of the way there.

Debated on even posting since my days of people actually recognizing my name are long gone on here. However I am super excited so I had to share. Would have hit it a lot sooner here if I wasn't always deleting articles so I can move them and rewrite them elsewhere. Still a big deal to me. YAY! Now...

The countdown is over; I finally reached the 1 million views accolade. Now on to 10 Million??? Well 1 Million seemed impossible 2 years ago...

Just trying to gauge how much of an achievement this is...

I just realised I'm up to 3,095,000 views. I don't really look at the totals much. It seems like ages ago when I got my 1 million badge. Going at my current rate it'll take about another 11 years to hit the 10 million badge. Ugh!
