Is anyone else having problems giving Lurve?

Asked by OpryLeigh (25251points) February 24th, 2010

I haven’t been able to give lurve today (at least it doesn’t seem to be registering when I click on “Great Answer” or “Great Question”) anyone else having this problem?

Worked for me =)

There might be a pill you can take for it…

Have you reached your lurve limit?

You got lurve when I gave you a Great Question.

I’m not sure with lurve limits. Do they register on the page but not the members total? Sometimes I’ve had to click more than once to register lurve.

How the lurve limits work, I’m not certain. I’ve heard secondhand that one jelly can only rate another 100 times total, but how that is implemented is a Bendrewim issue.

I had no trouble GQing your question.

Some of us who immgrated from sites that had no limits are probably in for a shock. I tend to be promiscuous with lurve-giving. I’ll likely slam into a wall soon.

I came across some comments that said your allowed to give out so many points and when you hit the limit, that’s it.

OpryLeigh's avatar

I hope there isn’t a lurve limit, I don’t like the sound of that.

ldeb's avatar

there’s a lurve limit?... I have some questions about this sight… what do awards in white mean? how does someone receive the robot crush or the cake in the frizzer award?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

What is a Bendrewim Issue. My head just exploded again.

Trillian's avatar

@Leanne1986 , You know what? Now that you mentin it, I’ve had three GA’s since I logged on and my score hasn’t changed.
@ldeb I don’t know how it happened, but I just got the Cake in the Frizzer award. I don’t dare try to think about that kind of thing, as my cheese has a tendency to slide off my cracker at the drop of a hat.

BoBo1946's avatar

did not know there was a limit?

Answering your question: What is a great answer…like beauty, “in the eye’s of the beholder!” Personally, i’m very generous with lurves as when a person gives their opinion, who am i say it is not a great answer.

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@BoBo1946 & @Leanne1986, yes, there IS a limit. But I think we need to be told when we hit it.

@stranger_in_a_strange_land, you’re right,. I sometimes have to hit the GA several times to get it to work, too.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I’m not sure about the limit being 100 or if it actually exists, cause I know I’ve given more than 20 GA’s.

Trillian's avatar

Oh my GOD! Bet me they jakked it up last night! Right? That’s it. Whatever they did last night had affected the ability to give Lurve!

BoBo1946's avatar

@jbfletcherfan totally agree…was not aware of that!

janbb's avatar

I tried repeatedly today to give it and wasn’t able to.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@stranger_in_a_strange_land I see I still have the ability to screw up. I found the Bendrewim answer.

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

@ldeb The Atlantis awards have secret criteria, part of the fun. I understand that some of them are like an easter egg hunt, having to post a certain thing on a certain thread. Others you have to do some unspecified thing.

OpryLeigh's avatar

I was under the impression that there was a limit to the amount of lurve you can give to each individual jelly but not to how much lurve you can give in general, anyone know if this is correct?

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@Leanne1986 It surely isn’t the whole total! That’d run out pretty quick. I thought it was PER PERSON, too.

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

@Leanne1986 I believe that the limit is how much you can give to one individual. The exact amount and whether it has ever changed, I don’t know.

This is probably in reaction to other sites that don’t have such limits; groups (cliques?) formed that awarded points to each other. Point totals shot into the stratosphere, leaving newbies frustrated. On one site, point totals of “leaders” were approaching three quaters of a million.

janbb's avatar

You are maxed out on an individual after you give them 100 points. You can still lurve them but it won’t add to their total lurve. It does still show up as a GA. Many of us still do it, even though we’ve maxed out on someone, as a High 5. There is no maximum to the amount of lurve you can award in toto.

I think any problems today are just a temporary glitch.

CMaz's avatar

I say Lurve or leave her.

Judi's avatar

You can hand out as many GA’s as you want, but the person will only get lurve points for the first 100 points you give them. That’s why high lurve jellies begin accumulating lurve slower. It’s all good.

Aethelwine's avatar

@Judi is correct. I just gave her a great answer but her score did not go up.

Dr_Dredd's avatar

I can’t get the “great answer” or “great question” buttons to work no matter how many times I push them/click on the links.

stranger_in_a_strange_land's avatar

@Dr_Dredd Some kind of individual glitch? My GA to you registered on the page,

Dr_Dredd's avatar

Hmmm… maybe it’s the computer I’m working on.

Bluefreedom's avatar

@Dr_Dredd. It’s definitely not the laptop I’m working on. I was able to give you lurve just now. It’s test lurve but it still counts.

andrew's avatar

@all We changed the URLs to a lot of things, so you may have an old page loaded with links that don’t work. Try refreshing your page.

Dr_Dredd's avatar

It works now!

jbfletcherfan's avatar

@Dr_Dredd You just weren’t holding your mouth right, ha.

philosopher's avatar

I just tried and could not.
I also tried to bring up thritymaid and it did not work.

OpryLeigh's avatar

I still can’t give lurve, I was hoping that it would be back to normal today but it isn’t. This is making me sad :(

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I was able to give you lurve. This is strange. But don’t be sad. Here’s a cyber hug for you.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

You’re more than welcome. I should have checked your page out first. My g/f is a huge animal and horse lover.

OpryLeigh's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe She sounds like a lady of very good taste!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Thanks. I agree but then I’m biased. I’ve got some great Blues playing right now. Blue Method, produced by Scott Stallone out of Philadelphia PA. I’m in upstate NY. We’ re getting hammered by a huge snowstorm right now, up to two feet.

erichw1504's avatar

I am also having this problem. Just sent an e-mail to them about it. Going to try and re-load the website or maybe even restart my computer.

There is an issue with IE 7 right now. We’re looking into it.

Sending feedback is the best way to get these types of bugs fixed because we can get all your system information.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

Now, I’m having this problem. But I am using IE ‘cause I can’t find Mozilla on mylap top

ben's avatar

Ok, it’s fixed now. Thanks everyone. You may now go back to lurving as usual.

Let me know if there are any further problems.

janbb's avatar

Ooh Ben – I just lurved you!

(And a kiss from Jake, too.)

OpryLeigh's avatar

YAY I can give lurve now! Thatnks guys :) Happy again.

BoBo1946's avatar

What is truly a great answer? Subjective….“beauty and great answers, are in the eyes of the beholder!”

btw, some never see the beauty of the answer! loll

OpryLeigh's avatar

@BoBo1946 All I know is that if I consider something to be a GA then I feel the need to acknowledge that. I felt very restrained when I couldn’t do that.
