Is the pixelated mass-exodus to this place going well?

Asked by resmc (749points) March 22nd, 2009

Greetings jellies (I believe you’re called)!

A bunch of us have lost our online home, & many have decided to migrate over here. Hope we’re a welcome addition to your eco-system :-)

I think it might be. I’m still trying to figure this place out.

Jiminez's avatar

So far I think we’re doing OK. Hope more members make it over.

Lefty_the_space_monkey's avatar

I wonder how many people have moved so far.

Harp's avatar

Welcome All!

Welcome. I assume you mean you come from wis.dm? Here is another thread with useful information. Feel free to send a private comment to one of the moderators (I am one) if you have more questions.

lillycoyote's avatar

I’m here, still trying to figure things out too.

Welcome! Please don’t litter.

Fluther is not as good as it used to be, everyone is really boring, I think 99% of it’s users are either post-menopausal women or hardcore Christianity geeks

Hey there new folks. Welcome aboard.

Be sure to check out the guidelines if you already haven’t.

Looking forward to an influx of new, intelligent, well thought-out, and articulate contributions to the collective.

thank you @allen_o for demonstrating the opposite of what I mean

Be sure to have some fun along the way.

Ooh, here comes @augustlan and @Blondesjon. They’re good people.

lazydaisy's avatar

so far, so good for me.

Dog's avatar

Fluther is being invaded?

Awesome! Welcome one and all.

augustlan's avatar

@allen_o That is one of the most ridiculous comments about Fluther I’ve ever seen… and completely untrue!

Kevisaurus's avatar

Sadly it is, as I am a refugee now.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

@augustlan: I’m still holding out hope that that was a joke?

Aethelwine's avatar

Welcome to your new home everyone. You’ll find fluther very addicting and fun! :D

Don’t listen to Allen_O

lillycoyote's avatar

@Dog Yes, fluther is being invaded. Resistence if futile.

cookieman's avatar

@Blondesjon and @jonsblond crafting together. They’re a team. And a couple of good shits.

Blondesjon's avatar

Today, you people are no longer maggots. Today, you are Jellies. You’re part of a brotherhood. From now on until the day you die, wherever you are, every Jelly is your brother. Most of you will go to Askville. Some of you will not come back. But always remember this: Jellies die. That’s what we’re here for. But Fluther lives forever. And that means YOU live forever.

Jayne's avatar

So, allen, are you implying that it is statistically probable that I am a post-menopausal woman, or perhaps a hardcore Christian? My atheist, teenage, male self takes issue with that. And so does my flawed statistical reasoning.

Dog's avatar

@lillycoyote There is plenty of room for all. Come on in- the beer is cold and the conversation fascinating.

allen_o's avatar

No it’s true, fluther is pretty crap compared to how it was a while back

loser's avatar

@ Allen_o What do you base your data on? I, for one, am neither. And instead of trashing Fluther, you could just leave.

Aethelwine's avatar

@cprevite Thanks! I’ll take a good shit any day. :)

resmc's avatar

@Harp @shilolo @fireside @loser @allen_o @augustlan @cprevite

Thanks muchly for your warm welcome! :-)

cookieman's avatar

@Blondesjon: Very cool. I think you just wrote our credo.

allen_o's avatar

@-loser, no, your that 1%

Dog's avatar

Just ignore Allen_o he is crabby cause we gave him a wedgie.

allen_o's avatar

They did, and it hurt x

La_chica_gomela's avatar

he deserved it though. I kinda want to do it again.
(But that’s probably just the hot flashes talking!!!) ;-)

allen_o's avatar

I’m talking out of my arse really, its sunday, I’m wasted

Jayne's avatar

Isn’t it cunning?

J0E's avatar

I made it over safely, I am finding some really cool features too. But it will never replace wis.dm.

kenmc's avatar

@resmc Your question definitely got some answers…

cookieman's avatar

@J0E: Don’t be so sure. Give us Jellies a chance. Welcome to the collective.

Lefty_the_space_monkey's avatar

This place is neat, and all, but the layout is a little confusing…

That might just be because I’m new though.

VzzBzz's avatar

Okay, how do I respond to comments?

resmc's avatar

@VzzBzz it’s not as thread-like as wis.dm. but you can type @screename to reply to other’s comments, i believe.

andrew's avatar

Hey all wis.dmers. Let me first welcome you all to the site. If you have any questions, please contact me in the chatroom.

Make sure you read the guidelines before asking your first question, and my response here might help you out as well.

EmpressPixie's avatar

Hello! Welcome to Fluther everyone! Hope you enjoy your stay!

adreamofautumn's avatar

Hey all you new Jellies! Welcome to the Collective! We’re a creative, hilarious, thought-provoking, deeply caring (seriously, I recently witnessed a collective group meltdown over worry that something had happened to a fellow Jelly when a random man ended up in her house!), sometimes unscrupulous, frequently argumentative (in a good way) band of Jellies. The move may seem hard right now, my best advice is to integrate, integrate, integrate! Don’t create a sub-group, join the Collective! You won’t regret it!!

Jiminez's avatar

I love how everybody here identifies as a group of jellyfish. That’s hilarious for some reason. Amirite?

katinthehat's avatar

Here’s another wis.dm refugee – KatInTheHat in the fluther! :)

VzzBzz's avatar

@andrew and the other flurther team, Thank You for putting up with our onslaught of your chat feature, asking questions to feel around and try to connect :D

adreamofautumn's avatar

@Jiminez and one day the Fluther Gods spoke out and said “and my followers shall be a Fluther (which happens to be the term to describe a group of Jellyfish)” and then there were Jellies, lots and lots of Jellies.

Nially_Bob's avatar

Everyone here seems rather accommodating. It’s comforting :)

Jayne's avatar

Sure, these jellies don’t sting!

augustlan's avatar

We do, however, tend to trap newbies in our tentacles and never let them go… :)

Nially_Bob's avatar

@Augustlan Jellyfish vs Snoopy? I swear i’ve seen something similar in the funny pages

augustlan's avatar

@Nially_Bob You’ve got to meet our own Snoopy!

Nially_Bob's avatar

@augustlan Hahaha, i’m certain we will get on well. That or burst into a ‘cartoon fighting’ dust cloud ;)

augustlan's avatar

We might need to add PigPen to the mix for the dust cloud!

Nially_Bob's avatar

@augustlan No worries, I have my own already :)

mattbrowne's avatar

It’s great to be here. Thanks, jellies, for the warm welcome!

Nially_Bob's avatar

@mattbrowne Hey Matt, ready to baffle and amaze the kind folks here with your scientific knowledge? :)

lillycoyote's avatar

@Nially_Bob Are you ready to dazzle and amaze the kind folks here with wisdom beyond your years?

Kelly27's avatar

@lillycoyote He is amazing, isn’t he? For his age I am sometimes amazed at his depth of understanding of people, among other things.

augustlan's avatar

He should fit in here nicely, then. We have several younger members who regularly blow our minds!

*BTW, how old is he?

Kelly27's avatar

@augustlan He has an amazing mind and to make it even better he is compassionate and not one to get into any petty arguments, he tries to always see things from all sides. He has a place in my heart ;)

Nially_Bob's avatar

@lillycoyote @Kelly27 I’m flattered but unfortunately the most I will likely do to dazzle and amaze is slip my dictionary.com word of the day into conversations. Anything else would be no less than thaumaturgy :|

Nially_Bob's avatar

@Kelly27 Aw shucks Kelly. Yourself and Lilly will always have a place in my heart right next to the jukebox and the “make your own fajita” bar :)

Kelly27's avatar

@Nially_Bob As usual you are too modest. :)

lillycoyote's avatar

@Nially_Bob we’re up there with the make your own fajita bar? That’s quite an honor and is giving me the warm fuzzies inside.

Kelly27's avatar

@lillycoyote Warm fuzzies for me too :D

asmonet's avatar

@Jayne: I love your hat, and I shall miss it wandering about Fluther for the next few weeks.

adreamofautumn's avatar

@Jayne agreed with Asmonet, come back soon! :)

mattbrowne's avatar

@Nially_Bob – How about some joint baffling and dazzling ;-)
