Do closed accounts accrue lurve?

Asked by FlyingWolf (2815points) July 29th, 2014

If a user with a closed account gets a great question or great answer, does their lurve increase?

I just gave a post from a closed account a GA, then refreshed the page. The answer to your Q is yes.

I wonder how many others are checking this right now? ;-)

As far as I’ve seen in the past, yes, they still gain lurve.

It is kinda like facebook. When you close your account it just flips a switch in the database to not show your profile. Your posts and all your data remain. They can easily turn your account back on like nothing happened.

Yes. Eponymoushipster hit 20k after he had been gone for at least 2 years. (no party for him)

@jonsblond he deserved a party, I liked that guy! I wonder where Grisaille’s lurve is now (and Cak, and Whatthefluther).

Aethelwine's avatar

@FlyingWolf Look what I found. Privatefacilities is also close to 20k, but he hasn’t made an appearance for 3 years. :(

Is it just me or does lurve not accumulate all the time when you get GAs and whatnot? It only seems to be credited part of the time.

There is a limit each Jelly can give to another Jelly, 100 lurve. It will show QA but no additional lurve if the limit has been reached.

Does that time out?

@ibstubro Deactivated and closed accounts can still receive lurve in the questions the user participated in.

Wow. That’s bizarre, @jonsblond. Loophole of sorts, I guess.

canidmajor's avatar

@ibstubro : You should try it. It works, like I said above, but within the parameters of anyone getting more lurve.

Yes, I had closed an account out several years ago, but looked for an older question where I had found myself involved in it, and was shocked to find that my account had around 200 more lurve from when I first closed that account out.
