Send Apple $350 bucks and 2000 lurve points and they will send you a 16G iPhone.

Absolutely nothing

I believe 2000 points can be redeemed for one LOLcat, and 5000 will get you a personalized RickRoll.

Lurve is Fluther Age. Under 100 & you’re young. Under 1000 & you’re a teenager. Under 5000, you’re old. Anything 5000 or over is a gray-haired rickety old crow.

AstroChuck, Lurve is War? How is Lurve like war? Is it like a Purple Heart Medal for going off-topic so many times without being killed off by the Moderators? Is the enemy ignorance? Is this why we ask so many questions?

Lurve is not age, its lurve. Appreciation. The word says it all.

If you must make a naive age comparason… Over 5000 should be crone status. Older and wiser and to be respected.

Blessed be, my friend!

Astro-chuck you rock my world!! Really lurve points are there to make others get jelous

I think Fluther appreciation is better shown by sending a personal “Comment” to the person, thanking them for input. The Lurve doesn’t show who gave you credit! Anonymous thanks via Lurve is cool though because we’re a collective. When you rate someone’s reply a “Great Answer” it’s like the whole collective is thanking them.

I hope you respect your elders when you’re older.

AhHhh Psyla, you crazy Mofo… In an odd way I agree with your analysis on age and lurve. When I started out on fluther, I was very unaware of the ettiquite (sp?) now that I’ve been on here for a good few months… My lurve has grown (like me) and improved over time.

I’m still gob-smacked at the whole lurve thing… did I get to 2000 in just over a month? My only reasonable explanation is that a broken watch is right twice a day and it’s far too easy to accidentally hit the ‘Great Answer’ when you scroll on an iPhone.

I don’t know about you guys but in a society where it almost demands perfection, where its survival of the fittest, a little “Lurve” can go a long way! As a matter of fact, I think I need some right now :(

@Psyla if we go by the age thing then that would make me a newborn more or less. Born a couple days ago LOL

Lurve is a form of bribery. I always bribe everyone who answers my Fluther questions by clicking ALL answers as a “Great Answer”. I usually get hundreds of answers to my questions (unless I ask something idiotic like “Will Almond Trees Grow In Zone 3?”). Pass some Lurve under the table! You get answers, they get Lurve, everyone’s happy.

Psyla, in fairness now, it’s not the lurve points that draw people to your questions so much as the hysterical giggles that comes from reading the responses – and the fact that you tell people to come and answer :P

Trance24's avatar

It gives you more incentive to answer more and ask more questions. When you are getting lots of points, that makes you think “hey they think I’m pretty smart. I want to answer more, I want to know more!” Lols.

psyla's avatar

I think HG is much better than LOL.

wildflower's avatar

Oh it is. It’s a whole different level of fun all together!
