Only in an indirect way. One way to evaluate the quality of a person’s answers is to see what range their points are in.

If you are not on an iPhone, check out the sibling questions——->.

Who gets points for Great Answer and why they do is complicated and unpredictable and worthy of a really good thesis.

@marina – as in if a person has lower points you will feel someone with greater points has a better answer?

XrayGirl's avatar

@chyna: that is a good point/question. ...I must say, I see some answers that are TERRIBLE, RUDE, mean, ugly, stupid, off the point, etc.etc, and they have been given MANY great answer points…soooooooo, I might venture to say that a lot of points does NOT REALLY mean good answers at all., but answers that others like or agree with

Marina; I don’t mean you, per se, I just mean in general..;)

You both raise good points. Note that I said one way. It is definitely not infallible. Also, many new people quickly become great assets.

Marina: true :)

Lurve is there to make you smile when you see that someone thought you gave a great answer. Nothing more, nothing less.

edit:@gail: of course.

They’re beta-testing a program in Australia where you can redeem your Lurve points for a Fluther accessory kit. It has all kinds of cool stuff in it, like pop-up timers and extra heads.

@xray, because you don’t agree does not mean responses are rude or ugly. If others are scoring as “great answers”, then somebody obviously agrees.

What’s it for? Why, lurve makes the world go ‘round.

breedmitch's avatar

Like John said, “lurve is the answer.”

Seesul's avatar

or, in Tina’s case: What’s lurve have to do with it?

AstroChuck's avatar

breedmitch- John said All you need is lurve.
Kind off.

@AC: edit while you still have the chance. (Kind of)

AstroChuck's avatar

Too late. Oh well.

Kind of.

@PupnTaco, heyyyyy! :P

gailcalled's avatar

@all; when I hit 5000, I received a cat. Was not that a Fluther reward? Oh, dear. I sent the thank-you note to the wrong address.

PupnTaco's avatar

I didn’t get my cat, or maybe our dog killed it.

Poser's avatar

Uh oh, I better stop giving such tremendous answers, or I’ll get a cat!

PnT: I have one you can rent; discounts for triends, of course.

gailcalled's avatar

edit: friends

AstroChuck's avatar

But, what about us triends?

gailcalled's avatar

Qwerfy discount to you, too, AC.

(and besides, Milo typed that remark about renting himself out…)
