Last week, I woke up to find 1 of my 9 accolades missing. I contacted the team at Hubpages, and they responded by saying that it seems to be there now. Yep. It came back, so I had nine.
Woke up today to find my 9th accolade missing again. What is going on? Anybody else have this problem ever?
Check under your keyboard. I usually find it there.
I don't know and I honestly couldn't care less. Accolades are only there to feed the Hubber's ego, they don't do anything to improve your readership or earn extra income. I don't even know which ones I've got.
Well..., they let other Hubbers know if you are awesome.
I just checked yours. 1M is not bad!
Yes. It was the hubber community accolade. It seemed to appear and disappear at random for a couple of months, regardless of my hub-hopping or comments in the forums. But it's been back now for a few weeks without disappearing. I suppose I've hit the required activity level for it to stick around, if not permanently, then at least for a while.
Certain accolades take repeated participation in order for you to keep them.
I don't pay a lot of attention to those things so might not have noticed if I lost one..
In the second row, I have one that you don't. It's the adorability one. To attain this one, you must become as lovable as I am.
That is far beyond my abilities. Do they have one for grumpy old curmudgeons that I might aspire to?
I immediately thought of an excellent answer to that. Namely to check a certain person's profile. If that accolade existed, it would definitely show up there. However, it's too early in the year to start another cat-fight.
Jeez, I skip the forums for a day-and-a-half and HP rips off one of my accolades. It was my be-nice-to-others accolade. Tough town, tough town.
I guess I'm going to have to go find someone to be nice to.
Actually, I've seen you make several helpful, good-info posts. I don't know why HP hasn't given you that one.
Of course, they'll just take it away again.
Yeah, I must have just lost one too as I know the rows were even a few days back and now they are not.
I don't know which one though..
Well, heck, I never see anyone complaining about your black heart.. it must be an error.
I've made a couple worthy posts today, so hopefully I'll be back in HP's good graces by tomorrow.
You know, I've done some HubHopping lately, which I suppose is part of that accolade, but I am having a hard time because I really feel that I'm too damn critical.
I see lots of stuff that I just skip by - it isn't good, but it isn't really bad and I just can't figure out what to say. Then there are all these "business card" hubs that are plainly promoting a business and again they aren't necessarily "bad" but I'm not sure they belong HERE.
I see so much stuff that I really think is substandard, but I'm not sure it is by HP's standards and as they refuse to give much guidance on those issues (and yeah, I know that's hard to do) I get discouraged and quit.. I don't want to add to staff's burden by flagging dozens and dozens of hubs that they are going to say are fine.. aarrgh!
Both are now gone again, I kid you not. To hell with it.
But my traffic is way up. Analytics will tell me way tomorrow, but right now I'm not sure why..
I feel exactly the same way about hub hopping. If a hub is obviously spun I will flag it, but otherwise, if it's not engaging or if it's written poorly, I don't know what to do and just go to the next one. I don't have the heart to vote a hub down. I end up skipping many of them.
I kinda like the accolades... they are something to keep me motivated. Within the next couple weeks I should be getting the one year, the 50 hubs, and the 10k views ones. It gives me a little glow... (I'm pathetic... I know)
We can see the glow in your picture, in fact :-)
LMAO! I need to get that picture fixed. It looks okay on my laptop and P.C. but on my son's laptop it looks pixelated. I have no idea why.
The glow there was from being outside in the late fall running after the small one.
Did you catch them? There's an accolade for that - a small child in a net, if I remember correctly.
It will probably be down the side of the sofa, as things usually are.
forum accolade fluctuates daily for me-when i post it disappears if i do not, poof back again??????????? quite funny really :
And now that I've posted to the forums a few times today, my hubscore is dropping precipitously. Coincidence?
Here, take one of mine.
No, no . . . I want it back . . . my accolade! I need my accolade!
I have one that has been coming and going for the entire time I have been here. I have finally decided, after extensive investigation, that it has to do with whether the hubpage computer is in a good mood or a bad mood.

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...

If so, why and would that entail being given a reason?I ask as I had an accolade for helping new hubbers and highlighting bad posts, but now it's gone -- the "" sign.Yesterday it was there and today it isn't.Now I'm not really that big on accolades, but if someone wants to give me a pat...

Presently, the subject accolade is set up to reflect when a hubber reaches 1000, 10,000, 100,000, 1,000,000, 10,000,000 and 100,000,000 views. I believe that it should be revised to where it would reflect 1000, 10,000, 25,000, 50,000, 75,000, 100,000 views, with the all of other levels remaining...

Just a thought for those of us interested in Accolades?Since we are awarded an Accolade for a certain number of Page Views how about getting awarded Accolades for a certain number of Slide Views?

Can you lose your accolades? ...And why?I have heard of hubbers losing their accolades, eg. for commenting on hubs, and wondered if anyone else has experienced this.

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...
