An accolade went missing?

    It seems that one of my accolades has gone missing. I had at least eight accolades a few days ago, and now I see that I have 7 accolades. Is this a glitch? Do people lose their accolades??

    I think the one that I had previously, which is now missing, is :
    "contributes to the community by helping our new users in the Forums, voting content(pink thumbs up/down)" etc.

      That one does indeed go AWOL on a fairly regular basis. Last time mine disappeared, I found it under my keyboard.

      Who knows, but don't fret about it.  I lost 4 accolades for a week or so not long ago when I was banned for seven days.  It's a secret how some of these things work.  smile

      Some accolades do indeed come and go based on your current activity. As to the algorithm used, only HP knows for sure.

    Thanks for the replies. I thought accolades are permanent. I guess not.
