How long have you been on Fluther?

Asked by fireside (12354points) November 4th, 2008

I just realized that I don’t have any idea how long Fluther has been around. When was Fluther launched?

Andrew and Ben have been members since October 15th, 2006. So that’s probably the first day. We had our 2 year anniversary recently!

Edit – I realized I never answer the title Q. I’ve been here since May 20th, 2008 and still hooked. i was told the honeymoon period would be over by now…all lies!

I stick around because I am waiting for Riser to come back.

Only about 2 months

Only since April 19th of this year. Sometimes it seems much longer. I stay for the occasional spirited discussion, for the interesting people, and the addiction fix.

asmonet's avatar

My account says since, April 22nd….but I definitely signed up in August or September.

I stay because I’m a lurve whore. Also, the spirited debates. Oh, and the charming little jelly below me currently crafting a response…

The first question was asked on October 16, 2008.
As for staying, I think I might be addicted.

You’re not alone, Nimis.

It’s nice to know I’ve got company.

August 2008, I was a refugee. At first learning the language was difficult and some of the natives weren’t thrilled but you know that refugees can add to the community.

I’ve been here for about 2 weeks now and I’m a transplant from another website called AV (for short).

I have to say that Fluther is one of the most laid back, comfortable, easy going, entertaining, and engaging websites I’ve come across in a long time. The give and take between everyone is spirited but also very civil in almost all occasions that I have seen.

It is moderated very well and they have a good format, in my opinion, on how you accumulate experience points for your contributions and participation in general. I could offer more but I think you get the picture. These are all reasons that I’d like to stay for a long time to come.

It sucked me right in, and refuses to let me go! More seriously, I feel like I’ve found some wonderful little village filled with lovely, lively, intelligent and interesting people.

Bluefreedom: There was a question the other day about a change in the questions here recently. I had to laugh because they have no idea about really nasty gang-bangers on the dark side (AV) Welcome into the light.

wundayatta's avatar

Since 8/8/08.

I was a refugee from the great banning, and I have slowly started to spend more of my time here. People are so much more responsive here. It also seems like there are a higher percentage of people here who have interesting things to say.

I’ve been here since December 19th, 2006, and I stay because how could you possibly leave?

Is there any other place to be?

Bluefreedom's avatar

@galileogirl. You’re not kidding. I’ve seen some dastardly things over on AV but Fluther is happening in a groovy kind of way. :o)

I joined the day after JohnPowell. So to answer your question, I have been a member of the collective for 1 year, 3 months, 3 weeks, and 5 days. Answered on Nov. 4, 2008

MacBean's avatar

I joined on June 6, 2008. I stayed because I got an instant Fluthercrush on Marina and then other Fluthercrushes developed quickly and now there are too many people that I genuinely like. I’d miss them if I stopped Fluthering.

marinelife's avatar

@MacBean Awwww, thanks. Blushes. I’m rather fond of you too.

I lurve Fluther. I find it a nice place to break away from the real world. I like asking questions and apparently answering questions. :) I too am a lurve whore.

What keeps me hooked? I crave information and I yearn to give back to the world the information I have obtained. I guess that’s it.

@johnpowell: I miss Riser too!

Oh, and I’ve been here since December 21, 2007.

tiffyandthewall's avatar

i’ve been here since the early early morning of the 16th of december, 2008.
it feels as if it’s been much much longer, but not in a negative way. i really can’t believe it’s only been like 4 months.

and do i need reasons to stay, when i can’t even find one that would make me want to leave?

galileogirl's avatar

Has anyone pointed out that start dates are on our profiles?
