Did the happy little affirmations on the site change recently?

Asked by Imadethisupwithnoforethought (14659points) May 1st, 2012

Am I imagining this? When did they change?

Not that I can tell. They are generated randomly, though, so maybe you’re just getting some now that hadn’t come up very often for you before?

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

Thanks. That is weird. Like 3 tonight I can’t recall seeing.

Trillian's avatar

Ya wanna pass that over here Mr. Bogart? I could sure use some about now.

SavoirFaire's avatar

Yeah, it happens every once in a while. There are a lot of them, and we pay attention a very small percentage of the time to what’s over in that corner.

“You make us weak in the knees”. That is a new one I hadn’t noticed before. Also, “My, don’t you look dapper.” And, “Sit back and relax. We will do the dishes today.” “Take your coat off, stay a while.” “Tag, you’re it.”

There are new ones, @Imadethisupwithnoforethought.

@Trillian see! I am not high.

And I would never bogart!

deni's avatar

“You look smashing”....definitely new! Very excited about that one, I love the term “smashing”. Thanks for pointing it out. :)

augustlan's avatar

@bkcunningham The dishes and the coat ones have been around forever. Not sure on the others, though.

janbb's avatar

@deni Maybe you just never looked smashing before. I get that one all the time.

I don’t think so…so far, I’m still the cream in someone’s coffee.

augustlan's avatar

I’ve been reloading and reloading the page, and I don’t think I’m seeing any new ones. It might be possible that I’m seeing some really old ones though… maybe they’re just in a new rotation?

janbb's avatar

@deni But “You are our favorite. Sshh -don’t tell the others.”

SpatzieLover's avatar

Nope.

Edit: Maybe good whiskey caused you to see something @Imadethisupwithnoforethought?

Coloma's avatar

Mine has changed 3 times in 3 minutes.
Right now it is ” Ah, you’re just the one we’ve been waiting for.” Oookay! haha

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

@SpatzieLover Tonight I went with a cheap Bourbon. Maybe that is it.

Sunny2's avatar

I wish I could answer them! Yeah, right. My hair looks terrible. You obviously can’t see me!

SavoirFaire's avatar

None of the ones mentioned so far are new to me. I clearly spend too much time looking for affirmation from Fluther’s random generator.

MilkyWay's avatar

“Let’s be friends.” is one I have never noticed before…

bkcunningham's avatar

“You are an ignorant slut with a large appetite and a small brain.” That is new. Fluther is stealing my fortune cookies.

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

@bkcunningham why are women always telling me I am a stupid ignorant slut , right after they tell me they tell me I am sweet and wicked smart?

bkcunningham's avatar

That is what my affirmation said you ignorant slut. jk

MilkyWay's avatar

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought Because they see both sides of you.
Either that or your evil identical twin is going after the women in your life.

woodcutter's avatar

Wow, I smell really good, apparently. Do people really say that?

Trillian's avatar

Possibly, but I’m apparently an unending source of amazement, which is probably why I’m their favorite.

Bellatrix's avatar

They told me to take my shoes off and stay awhile… No, that isn’t my feet you can smell!

I haven’t noticed any new ones.

FutureMemory's avatar

@Augustlan I’ve been reloading and reloading the page, and I don’t think I’m seeing any new ones

I can picture Auggie furiously mashing the Reload icon, “Change dammit, change!!!”

Imadethisupwithnoforethought's avatar

I have been considering this all night and as I am relatively new compared to most of the people responding:

Is it the case that it was broken before and longtiime users got more messages?

Bellatrix's avatar

Or @Imadethisupwithnoforethought perhaps I am really their favourite and really do never cease to amaze them! :-)

augustlan's avatar

@Imadethisupwithnoforethought As far as I know, nothing has been done to the site lately. I don’t always know, though!

zensky's avatar

I’m still their favourite and the Nobel committee calls regularly. So I guess they’re still the same. Cute, but nothing new.

augustlan's avatar

And I look nothing like the Chupacabra. That’s a relief!

Bellatrix's avatar

Well….

[Runs…]

rooeytoo's avatar

It’s me you all have been waiting for! (Whether you knew it or not)

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

No, they’re still drinking my milkshake, the bastards.
