If you could create an accolade - either unique to your profile or for a certain strange achievement... what would it be?
I replace my brains with coffee
Spammer - posts lots of short, fast hubs.
Amazonian - of course Nelle would get this award.
1000 anti-Obama or anti-government of any kind threads on the forum.
Over 1000 arguments started in the religion forum, pro or con.
Over 1000 sarcastic comments.
Number of accounts said person has.
Extra points if said accounts are used as sockpuppets in the forums. Mega bonus points if sockpuppets belonging to the same user are identified replying to each other's posts.
"Hubber contributes to the community by making it look like there are more people than there really are, through the skillful and not-so-skillful use of alter-egos."
"Hubber has started great discussions (with himself) by commenting on his own Hubs."
"Hubber doesn't write very engaging or entertaining Hubs, and visitors tend to click away as quickly as they find them; but this Hubber's sockpockets all seem to like his Hubs."
I think my milestones may look a little like this...
That just MY personal achievement list, hehe
Congratulations - you just got the award for most pointless effort put into a forum post. Good work!!!
For my profile:
Death Valley award
This hubber's humor is so dry, if it were a martini, the bartender would have simply shown the bottle of vermouth to the glass.
Troll, First Class
This hubber has created at least 500 forum posts that are deliberately belligerent, baiting, inflammatory, or insulting.
This hubber writes hubs full of long words when short ones would do just as well.
This hubber's writing is full of typos.
This hubber habitually confounds homonyms, much to the amusement of readers.
Love the fat finger award. Please can we have that one for real?
I would like to nominate the 'Self Publicist award' for smug, boastful hubs, which rub the readers nose in the authors sweet smell of success. Not that I'm at all bitter.
I really like your accolades. HP should implement them immediately!
Kathryn, maybe you're eligible for the "checks her affiliate accounts more than 5 times a day award?"
This hubber has achieved 10,000 forum hijacks.
This hubber has written 100 recipes that do not turn out well.
This hubber gives useless and sometimes dangerous advice.
This hubber ignores spelling and grammar and writes hubs that are practically impossible to read.
Don't forget the, "Forum-Poster with the Most Effective, Fake, Life-Drama Yarns"
"Hubber who feels the need to chew Hubba Bubba bubble gum when he writes - just because it has the word, "Hub" in its name, and he thinks it will help his Hub Karma score."
How about an accolade for changing your profile pic 'this writer changes their pic at least 10 times a week'
How about a Trifecta Accolade..
Hopes you think the model-beautiful woman in the picture he uses is he and will make you more likely to be interested in his Hub.
Writes about nothing but technology, making money, or breasts in the hopes of getting anyone who searches "what everyone searches for" sucked into reading his Hub.
Has a screen name like "Earn Money", "Obama", or "Migraine Headache"
. . . has written over 10,000 boring "Buy This" hubs in hopes of earning ad revenue! "Most Commercial Hubber Accolade"
Yeah, I was thinking along the same lines, Jane@CM.
"The Hubber who has left in a prolongued, dramatic huff (despite eliciting 250+ "Oh, please, please don't go!" Forum posts), reemerged as a new persona, gotten banned from the Forums, reemerged as yet another new persona (or several), announced his/her retirement more times than Michael Jordan and Brett Favre combined, then simply reappeared as if nothing had happened, no explanation, nada, and started hubbing again."
The hubber who has never written a hub yet has 10,000 plus fans/followers. Go figure!
Has inserted a link to their own post in the forums and gotten away with it X times.
Has yet to earn $100.00 from Adsense but has written X SEO hubs.
Has used the same keyword X times in one post (starts at 100)
Hates at least X other hubbers
The Misguided Missionary Award
Alternates Bible verses and intolerant rants in the vain attempt to convert diehard atheists/expert debaters like Mark Knowles to "their" form of Christianity.
The Political Junk Food Award
Mindlessly regurgitates hysteria-inducing lies "learned" from political commentators as gospel truth.
Jane -- I wish I knew!! I do know a couple you could ask, tho:-). I wonder if they're raking in the AdSense $$$ for their posts? LOL.
Hey - you know what used to be overdone but seems to have disappeared from the face of the Earth? The "Freemasons-are-out-take-over-the-world" discussion. I kind of miss the Freemason threads. They usually got lots of funny responses.
the "Meh" award for being an average writer with an average amount of hubs and an average amount of followers...You just aren't special.
The 'almost nearly there' award goes to the Hubber with over 100 Hubs yet has made only 1c on AdSense per hub for the life of their hubs.
An accolade for the most accolades award.
Or an accolade for the most overuse and inappropriate use of smilies
#1 Boston Hubber

Computer Game Addict
Spent 6.5 Years playing the same MMORPG, spent the last 5 months playing a 10 year old First-Person-Shooter game.

#1 Dragon on Hubpages
I fly high and spit fire...yes fire.

Duhhhhh...time to check out the forums.
Under 100 Backlinks per Hub.
Most Used Animations/Pictures on the Forums
I think I went overboard.

How long before accolade for 1000 page reads shows up on profile?
by Jake Frost 6 years ago
I got an email today saying that I had made 100 forum posts. The standard accolade email of "You have crossed an impressive milestone..." However no accolade has shown up on my profile, it has been quite a few hours now but nothing. Is there just not one?
by Sunil Kumar Kunnoth 5 years ago
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...

I am using AdSense for over a year now but i am not satisfied with my earnings. I am getting 50-100$ per month which is obviously not good.What do you guys think about AdSense earnings?
by Anita Saran 4 years ago
I was just awarded the Engaging Writer Accolade. All my 44 hubs are featured. Thank you for your support!

Don't get me wrong, I review Hubs and offer suggestions because I enjoy participating in the community, not for gaining some small badge on my profile. However, I am curious at what point the accolade for helping new Hubbers arrives. I'm not keeping count, but I'd guess I've reviewed somewhere...
