What does it take to win your lurve?

Asked by Clair (3832points) June 24th, 2009

I find that it doesn’t necessarily take a genius answer to win my lurve. Answers can be stupid or totally off beat. Even if it’s 100% and it makes me laugh, I’ll give it to them.
In a good question, I want it to give me a challenge and make me think. Possibly even suspect that they’re going off the deep end. All good questions don’t always deserve that extra three points.
And what does it take to be in your fluther? Do you consider them someone you just like their answers? All of their answers or a few? Do you have to think to yourself, “From the looks of it, I could hang out with that person.” Or are you just trying to get lurve in return?
I’m not stingy with my lurve, it just takes that extra special gumption to get it.
What does it take to win yours?

A funny, useful, wise, lurvtastic answer

Good writing, the ability to make me smile or laugh, good information, a novel take on something, or the ability to face up to a troll or an attack with style will get my lurve.

A question that I had always wanted to ask but couldn’t put into words, a question that is really well-stated and thought-out, or a question that makes me laugh in a good way will buy my lurve.

To be in my Fluther you need to be someone who writes interesting and well-thought out answers, someone who I think I could enjoy meeting in the real world, and/or someone who demonstrates the ability to be passionate yet mature.

I never do anything just to get lurve.

If I have learned I lurve.
If I have laughed and it is not a mean spirited comment I will often lurve.
If I have been challenged to really THINK- I lurve.

For me, it is all about the quality of the answers. I grade on the curve a little bit in the sense that I tend to like to reward new users with encouraging lurve if they give a good answer.

I am less likely to give GQs. If I was a Fluther god, I might think GQs should score higher than GAs, maybe 6 points? My criteria are much like yours: Usually it has to be thought provoking. Occasionally, something heart warming.

I tend to be remiss about adding people to my fluther. I do it if someone consistently gives interesting, thoughtful answers, and I know I like to read their posts.

@Marina I agree that the GQ’s should have a higher score than the GA’s. I’m much less likely to give a GQ.

i don’t know how to lurve or leave lurve

Lightlyseared's avatar

Be clever, be funny or be both.

It takes a solid answer to win my lurve. It takes a history of such solid answers to be in my Fluther. I haven’t added anyone in a long time though.

i just kick ass 24/7 and hope someone likes it.

Flattering comments made my way.

Harp's avatar

@Lalalime Whenever you click the “Great Answer” link under someone’s comment, or award someone a “Great Question”, it adds “lurve” points to their score. Also, adding someone to your fluther adds two lurve points to their score.

Tink's avatar

@Harp I thought he was just kidding about that

phoenyx's avatar

If it’s any of:

1. Something I was going to answer
2. Something clever
3. Well thought-out and thorough
4. Novel/different perspective

Clair's avatar

@AstroChuck Oh Chuck! Let me stroke your big tentacles!
@phoenyx ^^^I bet that’s a different perspective than yours ;-)

SirBailey's avatar

Support of a point I’m making will do it.

Clair's avatar

@SirBailey I totally agree with you! ;-)

msright1981's avatar

I am not sure when I give a great answer. It seems that I can see some answers which after reading it I feel wow such a great answer & he/she deserve a thumb up :).

CMaz's avatar

It just depends…


hungryhungryhortence's avatar

When another commenter says what I would have liked to then I don’t write anything

A point of view I’d not considered but see being very beneficial

Something too hilarious to pass up

A comment by someone I’m not necessarily in agreement with but who is making a great argument without being an asshole.

@AstroChuck You certainly are looking quite dapper today :)

YARNLADY's avatar

I believe that anytime anyone chooses to leave an answer, they make a positive contribution to Fluther, so I lurve every answer that doesn’t contain swear words sometimes even really good ones that do.

Jack79's avatar

witty if it’s in someone else’s thread

useful or at least a good effort if it’s in a question I asked (I don’t normally do opinion polls, I ask questions looking for actual answers, so whoever gives me facts gets lurve).

Blondesjon's avatar

I generally push whatever buttons the voices tell me to…

lurve related or not

DominicX's avatar

I give it to answers that answer the question well, not necessarily ones that I agree with, not insults that I may agree with, none of that. I give it to quality answers to the question.

Bluefreedom's avatar

It takes very little to win my lurve. If you’ve posted a good answer to a question or made a good comment in a thread, you’ve taken time out of your busy schedule to make a positive and important contribution to Fluther and that in itself is worth my lurve. And thank you for your efforts also.

Clair's avatar

@YARNLADY Shit! I guess I’m up the creek.
Am I a bad person for that?

Lupin's avatar

I’ll lurve if the answer was clearly well thought out and makes sense.
I’ll lurve if the answer hits me and makes me laugh – or cry . You know who you are.

evelyns_pet_zebra's avatar

<—-agrees with Blondesjon, the voices know what to do.

SirBailey's avatar

@Clair, LURVE for that answer! See what I mean?!!! :)

wundayatta's avatar

Shameless pandering ;-)

If it makes me laugh; if it makes an interesting point; if it makes me think; if it answers my question in the spirit it was asked.

cyn's avatar

lurve? what? ughhh
wouuld people lurve me for telling a joke…
wife and cereal
A woman calls her husband at work one day and asks him, “Can you help me when you get home?” “Sure,” he replies. “What’s the problem?”
“Well, I started a really hard puzzle and I can’t even find the edge pieces.” “Look on the box,” he said. “There’s always a picture of what the puzzle is.” “It’s a big rooster,” she said. The husband arrives home and tells his wife, “Okay, put the corn flakes back in the box.”

i lurve anything that makes me smile, that is really well-written, or that i really agree with. sometimes someone will post something from a perspective that i don’t agree with, but if they wrote their answer with respect, i will lurve it anyway.

msright1981's avatar

@tiffyandthewall you seems to be fair against other opinions. I like that :).
