Do you have a lurve preference?

Asked by SuperMouse (30829points) February 7th, 2010

I am the first to admit I am a lurve whore. I lurve to see those points go up and I lurve every point I get. That being said, I must admit there is a special place in my heart for “Great Question” lurve. I am not sure why but it just makes me happy when people like my questions! Do you have a lurve preference?

Good answer. Even though it seems to be handed out more readily for – funny answer. Maybe if we had a funny answer lurve we would be able to differentiate between the two. I love humor, but I also love a good answer.

Lurve is the icing on the cake here at Fluther! (IMHO) I do feel proud when I receive lurve for a GA, it’s very rewarding to feel that my opinions or thoughts are valued and heard <3

I like the two-point kind I get from someone adding me to their fluther. It flatters me that anyone would be interested in following any posts of mine.

I’ll take it any way I can get it.

I’m just happy and grateful that this community has accepted me, depression, autism and all. I’m surprised that someone as ordinary as me could accumulate lurve as rapidly as I have, I really can’t figure it out, but thank you all so much.

Lying on my back…
Oh, wait. You mean something different.
Lurve is wonderful, but I prefer replies to @filmann. It gives me the illusion people care what I think.

janbb's avatar

@filmfann That’s true; I really like it when people respond to my posts.

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

@filmfann Yes. That is particularly gratifying to recieve a personal response. I try to do that as much as possible and also give attribution to others that may have inspired my own response.

I wish it was like back in the olden days of vinyl, cassettes and no lurve system.

I still don’t completely get the points thing, as it doesn’t seem to match. I appreciate when the asker gets something out of my answer, especially if I take the time to give a well thought out response. I also like the feeling of validation if someone likes or agrees with my answer.
Not that I need validation mind you, but it beats trying to explain myself to willful ignorance or hostility.
I also like PM comments and direct replies that indicate that someone has gone through the onerous task of actually reading one of my posts.

I too like great questions! both mine and others but I give lurve for everything that even remotely impresses me…I am a lurve whore too and I don’t care one bit!

I’ll take lurve in any form I can get it. I don’t care how it comes, so long as it comes. When there are periods of time that I don’t get much, I worry that I am not on top of my game. It’s also a reflection on the energy I’m putting out, I think. I don’t get much lurve when I’m depressed, and I get more when I’m not. Kind of the opposite than would be helpful, but I can’t do much about that.

It’s also weird that people say funny answers get a lot of lurve. I have not found that to be the case. Of course, maybe I’m not as funny as I think I am. Well, I like my jokes even if no one else thinks they are funny.

The lurve from being added to fluther thing is strange, too. I don’t know anybody who adds me to their fluther any more. I’ve never seen anything they’ve written. Well, in many cases, anyway. So it disconcerts me because I wonder how someone I don’t know would have any interest in what I write. I write to people. Not for people. If I don’t know you, I can’t write to you. Somehow it doesn’t seem right that anyone I don’t know would put me in their fluther.

FInally, there’s question lurve. That’s the only kind I can count on. People used to tell me that I write good questions, but no one has said that in a while, so maybe I’m slipping there, too. Oh well. I like questions.

And answers.

@wundayatta Liar. I happen to know for a fact that you do write for some people. Which reminds me, I have a spare hour that I can use right now to get some writing done that’s been circling around in my head….

I don’t ask very many questions… So I’m partial to GA’s. I do really enjoy when I get a GQ the few times I post… but I’ll take the GA’s when I can get them. It’s nice to think your answer was informative or may have actually have helped someone.

wundayatta's avatar

@Trillian Funny. I could have sworn I was writing to someone. Oh well, my mistake.

aphilotus's avatar

I like great question lurve!

augustlan's avatar

Since I don’t ask very many questions (and the ones I do ask aren’t usually that great), I don’t get much in the way of GQs. On the few occasions I’ve put a lot of time and effort into a Q, it is gratifying to receive a GQ for it. I feel the same way about answers. If I’ve put my heart and soul into an answer, it’s fabulous to get a GA for it. But, like @AstroChuck, I really appreciate the lurve from being added to a fluther. It’s the best. :)

Any lurving is good lurving, so I took what I could get…..


toomuchcoffee911's avatar

I’ll be the first to admit, love getting lurve. My favorite is good answer, because I like to know I contributed to helping the asker (whether it just be comic relief or something deeper). I also love getting GA’s for answers I wrote a long time ago; sometimes I’ve completely forgotten I wrote them!

Sometimes I go back to really old questions and give a couple random GA’s to remind people of their really old answers.

CMaz's avatar

Good questions and good answers get a bit of lurve.

I also, (usually) give individuals lurve that respond directly to me.
Example: ”@chazmaz you are out of you mind.” That gets lurve. :-)

janbb's avatar

@ChazMaz So give me some lurve! (And I didn’t even whisper it.)

filmfann's avatar

@ChazMaz I like your style.
