What is it with askers who don't give out lurve?

1 Answer

Answer :

answer:That’s your choice. But you shouldn’t be answering questions in order to get lurve, you should be answering in order to contribute your expertise. My own choice is to give lurve only to answers that are clearly well-researched, well written, helpful, clever, and well thought-out (the same applies to humor). Anyone can vomit out any old comment, but truly helpful and thoughtful posts should be rewarded.

Do you think you are receiving all of your deserved lurve?
Last Answer : It's an imperfect system. Sometimes I think the lurve is over-generous, and sometimes I feel I've given great comments which were overlooked. I think lurve tends to over-value short & clever phrasing. And ... that just accumulates over time, and has a cap per lurver. But I still lurve and crave it.

Is something screwy with Lurve counting? It seems like it is ignoring lurves earned during the day and only adding one each morning.
Last Answer : No – it’ because everyone may be maxed out on you. After you have gotten 100 lurve from someone your lurve does not go up any more from their GAs or GQs. Mine has gone up in days except for the one from signing in each day.

Is your lurve total frozen, too?
Last Answer : answer:People max out on the amount of lurve they can give you. It still shows up as a GA but doesn’t increase your score. I think it is 100 points per person until it doesn’t count anymore on your actual points. It is just the way it is and everyone has dealt with it.

I have a Lurve question.
Last Answer : You are limited by how much lurve you can get per person. You’ve maxed out on some people so when THEY give you lurve your score doesn’t increase. I’ve been stuck at the same score for a while. I doubt I’ll ever make it to 40 because most day the only increase I get are the points for showing up.

What is lurve?
Last Answer : It's the esteem of the Fluther community, expressed in numerical form. When someone clicks the Great Answer or Great Question button, they're giving someone lurve.

Should fluther get rid of the lurve system altogether?
Last Answer : This is Fluther, and this is pretty much the way things will stay, since Ben and Andrew have gone to Twitter.

What's with all the Lurve?
Last Answer : answer:You are new. Some people do that. It isn’t admiration. It is a misguided attempt to make a new person feel welcome. While the intent is fantastic the method is lacking in finesse. It is much easier to just say “Welcome to Fluther.”

Why when you hit the "Great Answer" button on someone's response, does it sometimes add two lurve points and other times just one?
Last Answer : Hitting the GA button refreshes the GA number for that comment. If you see that it increases by more than one, that means that someone else has GA’d that comment since you last loaded that screen.

Would anyone like to tell me the significance of lurve and all these "jellies" and the marine life theme of Fluther?
Last Answer : well, a fluther is a herd of jelly fish, or a school…what ever you want to call it. So I believe that the whole site is sort of themed around that word. Lurve supposedly means love, so I guess its basically your popularity points, or how much people love you. So, i hope this was helpful…

Are you having problems with lurve?
Last Answer : This really needs to be added to the FAQ :) The lurve system is set up such that each person can only give you a max of around 100 lurve. They can still give you Great Answers/Great Questions, and ... cause you log in consecutively thus it gets added, there are no limits for that one I don't think.
