Earlier this week, we updated one of the HubPages Accolades – perhaps you have noticed!
The Great Commenter Accolade now has levels. Shown in Roman numerals, these levels, ranging from one to eight, will help you see just how great a commenter a Hubber is.
The key to leveling up is to leave insightful comments on others’ Hubs and to reply to comments left on your own work.
If you’re curious about the actual factors that contribute to the generation of your personal Great Commenter level (which is based on points accumulated), here they are:
- The number of comments you leave on others’ Hubs (and your own)
- The length of your comments (more points are given for longer comments, while you may get negative points for a consistent pattern of repetitive, very short comments)
- The consistency of your commenting (regular commenters get a boost)
There is also a penalty for comments that are marked as spam or denied.
If you did not know about the new Accolade feature, visit your profile to view your Accolades (so long as you have them set to be displayed) and see if you have it, and if so what level you’re at. And don’t forget to leave helpful, meaningful comments on others’ work. 😀
