I had just been given a Level 2 Commenter Status last night and now it looks like it is gone and I have no icon for my Comment Status? Why would this happen to me?
Maybe you changed your settings. Go to the Profile Tab in My Account. At the bottoms see which bubbled is filled. Maybe "no one" is filled which is why you wouldn't see it.
Eureka! I have been struck! I have lost the same critter! Don't remember if I was a level 6 or 7...I reckon an age thing, lol.
Thank you for your response bedbugabscond, I just checked that and it is set to everyone. So not sure why this would happen.
This is just pure speculation based on my own experiences, but I think HP has tightened up their specifications. My own commenter accolade disappeared again. And I'm pretty sure it's gone forever.
When you get banned they take several of the accolades away as if to punish you with them being gone.
Hey look at that, mine is gone, too. I still have "Starts great discussions in comments" though.
So I am not the only one they took it away from too. Just thought it was odd, because I just got it late last night and now not even 24 hours later and it is gone. So strange.
I think its a glitch, because my level 7 status disappears for a day, then magically reappears, so I wouldn't get too worried about it.
Maybe not commenting overnight was enough to put you back a category?
It did come back and am at a Level 4 commenter status already, but have noticed once in awhile my accolades do still disappear and then reappear. So strange and still don't know why this happens and wonder if it is just a glitch or something.
It is either a blip in life.
Or we are all doomed.
I think it is the...
Maybe the category relates to a certain number of comments over a certain time. So you could pop just over and then dip just under within a day or so.
Maybe they work in a similar way to our hubscore, it shifts and changes according to our rate of activity? Saying that I gained the helpful citizen award the other day and that seems to have disapeared. Perhaps as mentioned before its a glitch?
I guess it changes. I got an email saying I had been raised to level 5 but I'm back to 4 again.
glad you posted this, the exact same thing just happened to me. Justgiven level two commentator and now it's gone. Less concerned if it's not just me. thanks XD. Must just be a problem with hubpages I guess.
When my awesome Level One accolade disappeared, I went and commented on 3 hubs. My Level One accolade came back. I rested on my laurels. The accolade disappeared again a few days later; never to return. Apparently, unless I am constantly making comments, I am doomed. What with me being commenter-challenged, I gave up.
Oh no, if that is the case I may well drop back into the negative numbers! There are days sometimes that I do not comment due to this thing I refer to as "time", or lack of time. Now I shall toss and turn all night, unable to sleep due to lack of commenting! Negligence on my part no doubt. No telling how Karma will repay me!
I see you are a Level Six. Stop making comments and give us a timeline as to what your accolade does in response.
Lol, I made comments to see if it would come back. I reckon that is what is going on. That would be within the last few hours.

Why have I gone from a level 7 commenter to a level 5?I leave comments every day here on HP and yet I have helplessly sat by and watched my commenter level drop from a 7 to a 5 and quite honestly I have no idea why.

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...

Some weeks ago I received the accolade of becoming a level IV commenter. However I have noted that all my comments still indicate that I am a level 4 commenter. Concerned that my accolades in general are not being accredited. Is this a glitch that corrects itself periodically?

Anyone know how/why I went from a level 8 commenter to a level 5?Guess I've been sleeping...I just notice I got knocked down from a level 8 to a level 5 but have no idea why....any suggestions?

How does Hubpages determine if you become a level 1,2,3, etc. commentator? Is it based on the number of hubs you comment on? The quality of your comments? If you comment on different people? Does anybody know? I'm just curious...
