Is there a way to find out what the secret award means if you have it?

Asked by poofandmook (17230 points ) November 4th, 2009

I got one of the secret awards today and I have no idea what I did to get it. I’m curious :)

I am even more curious about the Cake in the Frizzer award that I had and lost and I don’t know how to get it back

I’m pretty sure Cake in the Frizzer means you’re pregnant.

Scoop out Bendrim’s brain and implant it into your head. It’s the only way to figure it out.

@pdworkin I got a “Cake in the Frizzer” and then they took it back. Does that mean I had an abortion?

I’m a newbie, soooo of course I have no clue

dpworkin's avatar

Maybe you had a live birth. I wasn’t there.

@marionef But you fit in well with our peripatetic style. Being on Fluther for long does cause ADD, you know.

@pdworkin @janbb It’s going to be tough to find everything in this secret volcano lair. That is what the award is for….still don’t understand it…who makes up this stuff???

dpworkin's avatar

Our Demented Founders make up this stuff. What are they, nuts?

J0E's avatar

I kinda wish there was. The awards are right on the border of fun and annoying.

janbb's avatar

@marionef Some secret volcano lairs are better left unplumbed!

(I think we can work this girl into the act, pd.)

Go to the community feed on the right of the screne and click on an award someone won, it takes you to another page, a list of all the awards. scroll down till you find what you are looking for

@janbb thats good lol

Luckily I’m one of those people who can just let it be, but if I weren’t, I imagine that I would spend about ten times more time on Fluther than I already do, seeing who had what secret awards and when they got them and what they were doing at the time…. etc. etc. :)

marionef's avatar

@pdworkin I thik they have too much time on their hands lol

janbb's avatar

@marionef Not like us!

Normally awards tell you how to get them. Secret ones do not. The text for the secret awards is just saying we won’t tell you how to get it and the mouseover text is usually a riddle or subtle hint.

We spend time on the details because it really makes a difference and shows just how much we care. And we hope you guys really enjoy it.

As for the secret badges, a little mystery never hurt anyone, right? ;)

J0E's avatar

@timtrueman Secret badges?

timtrueman's avatar

Err, awards. I suppose it’s naptime for me…

J0E's avatar

haha, I was confused for a minute.

XOIIO's avatar

@janbb I had ADD before fluther, think it will cure it?

janbb's avatar

@XOIIO Nope, makes it worse.

I am surprised to hear that you can receive an award and then have it taken away. How would you even know it was there? I’m wondering which ones I’ve received and lost while I was asleep.

RedPowerLady's avatar

@YARNLADY The cake in the frizzer award is the only one this happened with and it was just do to a mistake, they told us they accidentally made a mistake and apologized for taking away.

YARNLADY's avatar

@RedPowerLady Oh good, now I feel better about going to sleep at night.

RedPowerLady's avatar

@YARNLADY lol, but did you know that they read our PMs?

YARNLADY's avatar

@RedPowerLady yes, I did know that, I sometimes put secret messages in mine just for them to see

RedPowerLady's avatar

@YARNLADY I’ve considered doing the same, now I just have to remember next time I PM, hehe

janbb's avatar

@RedPowerLady Do they really? Sounds like a case for the CIA!

RedPowerLady's avatar

@janbb Exactly what I said! And ya they have the ability to read PMs but say they just check for illicit content and try not to really read it. Something like that.

Fernspider's avatar

Oh my god! Read our PM’s… shoot, the police will be on to me in no time now! Shhh, quick, hide me!
