Fluther newcomers: Are you giving and receiving lurve?

Asked by marinelife (58349 points ) July 30th, 2009

I have noticed that when Fluther gets an influx of new folks, as we have recently, it takes a while to get used to lurve.

Are you on board the lurve boat yet? When you’ve asked a question, have you acknowledged any good answers with lurve?

I have been trying to reward newcomers who are making good contributions.

What gets your lurve?

I just joined yesterday and I give lurve to anyone who gives a thoughtful and useful reply for a question. I lurve getting lurve so I give lurve back. It’s a lurve circle.

Jude's avatar

Yes, to the new Jellies…welcome! :)

Allie's avatar

I’m not a newcomer, but I’ve been giving out oodles of lurve since the influx. Mostly to the newcomers, but to some oldies-but-goodies too.

Welcome to Fluther, newcomers. =]

RandomMrdan's avatar

yay, someone asked exactly what I was thinking! I hate giving a great answer only to receive zero lurve.

casheroo's avatar

I’m always a lurve whore, I lurve to give it.
I hope the newcomers lurve it to.

andrew's avatar

They are, marina, oh, they are.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

@andrew Wow, it’s a good time to be lurved!

jonsblond's avatar

I’ve given lots of lurve to the newcomers. What a great group of intelligent people! I’d love to add some to my fluther but my fluther is full. :(

Damn_Tony's avatar

I joined yesterday and I was told to give lurve when someone deserves it.

Welcome New Flutherites!
I have learned so much here that I can honestly say it has enhanced my life!

It is awesome to see the collective grow!

Likeradar's avatar

I’ve been super impressed with some of the new jellies and have been giving out lurve like it’s free. oh.

Tink's avatar

Yep i’ve been giving lurve to new Jellies.
Welcome!

Sarcasm's avatar

I’ve been hoarding it all.

bhec10's avatar

I joined about 2 weeks ago and I have been giving lurve to a lot of new Flutherites, but this hasn’t really been reciprocated :-(
yet, i hope :-) Lurve me, people :-D

Dog's avatar

Welcome @bvdshec17 !

amaris's avatar

I’m a newbie =] and I’m finding that the more I’m on the website the quicker I’m figuring out when to give lurve, it took me a day or two and watching how everyone else interacts to see what I’m supposed to be doing, lol.

filmfann's avatar

I always give lurve to anyone I see under 50, but here is lurve to everyone!

Dog's avatar

@amaris that is the best way to experience Fluther and get to know the culture. Welcome!

jonsblond's avatar

I love being the first to give someone lurve.

I’ve got my eye on you if you have (1) and you say something helpful or funny.

Jude's avatar

I’m giving out lurve like crazy tonight. Such such questions and great responses from everyone!

DeanV's avatar

Hah. Total lurve orgy in the last few weeks. I think I’ve received more in 2 days than I did in a few weeks a little while back. I don’t add much to the total score, though, which is a little odd.

SuperMouse's avatar

@jonsblond me too! I lurve to be someone’s first! I have been giving a ton of lurve over the last week or so!

jonsblond's avatar

lurve orgy…

time for a smoke

Dog's avatar

It is pretty easy- the new influx of Flutherites have great questions and knowledgeable answers. It really rocks!

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

Ahh, to see the baby jellies grow up into full blown Flutherites.

They grow up so fast (single tear).

Damn_Tony's avatar

Haha lurve orgy?

TheCreative's avatar

Even if they are or aren’t, you shouldn’t be motivated by getting lurve. Helping others and learning is what I’m here for.

cyn's avatar

I’m not new…..
maybe
I lurve giving away lurve and lurve recieving lurve!
:)

filmfann's avatar

MMMMMMMMmmmmmmmmmMMMMMMM
Lurve to lurve ya baby!

rooeytoo's avatar

May I please join the orgy!!

Lurve is in the air and everywhere tonite.

kenmc's avatar

Lurve whoring here…

Nothing to see.

jeanna's avatar

@TheCreative has it! Lurve for that.

tiffyandthewall's avatar

did anyone not see this coming?

styfle's avatar

I just started yesterday. I gave out a few lurve, but I’m kinda picky. I guess it has to be a great answer, not just a good answer for me to click it.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

@tiffyandthewall No I definitely didn’t see it coming. Why did you have to remind me?

YYAAPP's avatar

This newbie lurves and loves to be lurved…
But I mostly enjoy to just answer the questions!

MacBean's avatar

unf unf unf!

Ailia's avatar

Actually I don’t know how that all works out. So how do you give and receive lurve?

Tink's avatar

You give Great Answers when you like someones answer or their question.
To recieve lurve others have to like what you post and whatnot.
Welcome!

Ailia's avatar

Thank you so much. And I have another question, how do you connect to other people? For instance if I like someone’s question or answer can I subscribe to them or something?

Tink's avatar

You welcome.
Well you can PM them= private message.

Ailia's avatar

So if I added you, all I have to do is go to your profile and PM?

Tink's avatar

Yes, but you don’t have to add them to your Fluther, you can PM any random person

Damn_Tony's avatar

@Tink1113 Well aren’t you being helpful today, weird :P

marinelife's avatar

@Ailia You “subscribe” to someone by adding them to your Fluther.

jlm11f's avatar

@Marina – Lurve to you for this question. Always good to remind people about the spirit of lurving :). Oh and welcome to all the newbies!

Mozart's avatar

I’ve gave out a ton of lurve since I’ve joined, and I seem to have gotten a load in return. Thanks everyone! :)

cyn's avatar

@Mozart You are welcome. :)
