Meta Question

UvulaCrusher's avatar

New to Fluther. I received a notice that I'd had an answer to my question.

Asked by UvulaCrusher (83 points ) January 9th, 2013

It states I have 3 answers to my question. However, I can only see the original response someone provided, and my response to them. So, that’s 2. Since I’m new, is there someplace else for me to look for this 3rd potential answer, that I was emailed about and the site shows I have? Respectfully-
:)

The third answer was spam and removed by a moderator. Your response is considered technically an answer.

Welcome to Fluther. You’ll get the hang of things soon.

Welcome to fluther. The third answer could have been a jelly or one of the automated spammers that appear here now and then. There is a team of mods that watch for inappropriate answers and they remove them (mod them) as necessary to keep the site in order. You figured out that this question belonged in Meta so you’re getting the hang of the place. Good job.

Here’s your third. Welcome to Fluther.

Use the @ sign for a scroll down list of the people who have responded.

I just checked to be sure, and yep. The third answer was spam, so we removed it. Good news, though! You’ve gotten another answer which might solve your issue. Go look! :)

Everyone already answered so I will just say Welcome to Fluther!

Thanks to everyone that helped out! I didn’t know about the spam removal issue! I did figure out that my replies were counting, but I appreciate that being brought up as the possible issue! I trully appreciate the friendly, and genuinely HELPFUL service! I wish I’d discovered this long ago. I’ve replied ot someone looking for an answer and will continue to pay it back. THANK YOU!
:)

Zensky or someone following this…...can you explain the @ comment? I didn’t follow that.

If you go to the “answer this question UvulaCrusher” and type @ it will give you a list of jellies that have responded. It’s not all inclusive, it lists the latest ones but if you start typing the name it gives you jelly names.

@UvulaCrusher Typing the @ symbol at the beginning of your reply lets you direct your reply to a specific person in the thread. Just type @ and then the first letter or two of the person’s username, and it’ll fill in the rest and create a link to that person’s most recent reply. (Unless they are the asker of the question, as you are here…then it will create a link to the top of the page where the question is.)

@augustlan Thank YOU VERY MUCH! I didn’t follow that initially at all! Thanks thanks thanks! That is helpful to know! :)

@Adirondackwannabe Thank you! This was helpful, as I was ass/u/ming that ‘jellies’ was the term for spam on Fluther…..so thanks for the help with the @ issue on 2 levels. :)

@UvulaCrusher: One “thank-you’ will suffice. How about asking another question?
