Not that I truly give a sh** but what happened to my lurve?

Asked by AstroChuck (37346points) June 27th, 2010

I know that it’s not really important but something strange is going on with my lurve. When I had last looked before leaving Fluther I had 29906 lurve points. But now after signing on again it shows that I have 29891. I’m going backwards! Weird. Has anything like this happened to you?

I got serious deja vu reading this question… I have no clue why.

Would modding have taken away lurve?

Jeruba's avatar

I thought that was impossible. It has to be a mistake.

Lightlyseared's avatar

Maybe they have instigated that negative lurve thing that so many people used to think was a good idea.

Jeruba's avatar

I doubt that. I think that suggestion has been soundly trounced every time it has come up.

markyy's avatar

The only times lurve gets removed is if you were caught gaming the lurve system. Other than that I can’t think of any reason other than faulty memory. Well maybe a database issue, but I doubt you’d be the only one affected, and even if that was the case I’m sure whoever fixed it would have contacted you to let you know :)

A blurb in the time/space continuum?

augustlan's avatar

Hrm. That’s weird. There’s no reason that I can think of for that to have happened. Try clearing your cache and restarting your browser. If that doesn’t do the trick, click on the “contact” button and send us an email about it.

I would never take away your lurve, Chuckie!

markyy's avatar

@boots Modding doesn’t take away lurve btw.

kenmc's avatar

@markyy I didn’t think it did, but sites will have flaws.

nebule's avatar

ah bless you…I would feel a little grumpy about it…hope you get it sorted xx

cookieman's avatar

They’re removing 1-lurve point for every bad joke you’ve made on Fluther.

chyna's avatar

@cprevite Wouldn’t he have a lot less points in that case? :-)

janbb's avatar

I think it’s sort of like The Portrait of Dorian Gray; since your avatar never ages, your lurve diminishes.

liminal's avatar

Your score reads 29906 to me.

AstroChuck's avatar

@cprevite- Oh geez! I’d easily be the first to Club -40K then!

andrew's avatar

@AstroChuck You probably had an old window open that you hadn’t refreshed.

AstroChuck's avatar

No. I refreshed and then closed it and started it up again.

augustlan's avatar

You’re at 29909 right now… what do you see?

chyna's avatar

@augustlan That doesn’t make sense either. He was at 29906 when he posted his question. He received 5 GQ’s, so he should be at least 15 points ahead of that number, right?

AstroChuck's avatar

@chyna- No. People lurve out on jellies. Also you can only get so much lurve per thread.

chyna's avatar

I didn’t think you could max out on lurve on GQ’s, just GA’s. But apparently I was wrong, because I just gave you a GQ and your total didn’t go up. I maxed out on you long ago. :-(
Edited to add: I just gave Jjmah a GQ and I know I’m maxed out on her, and her lurve went up.

janbb's avatar

@AstroChuck It’s all a plot against you; I tell you a plot.

cookieman's avatar

If this thread goes on any longer, we may as well morph it into Chuck’s 30k bash.

janbb's avatar

@cprevite Or we could just hold a party for him for 29909?

chyna's avatar

@janbb We might as well, because his lurve is not going up. He is stuck at 29909.

janbb's avatar

Hey @AstroChuck You need to make some new friends! (Don’t we all?)

breedmitch's avatar

I suspect you actually give a shit.

cookieman's avatar

I know…let’s throw out some keywords that’ll entice newbies to join this thread and (hopefully) lurve-up Chuck.

gailcalled's avatar

Not that I am suspicious of sentences that start with “Not that I give a shit, but…” or “I know that it’s not really important, but…” but I do wonder.

janbb's avatar

@cprevite Or there’s always the generic “Can you help me?”

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

I will say out loud that I don’t really care about lurve either, but my answering this question seems to negate that statement.

I have to add that in the last half hour I’ve received 2 GAs, and my lurve total has not moved a bit. This is not the first time this has happened to me. I can only guess-timate about it, but I think it happens to me about once a week.

Is there anything to be done about it? Does it matter?

When do I get my shopping coupons worth my lurve value?

janbb's avatar

@hawaii_jake If someone has already given you 100 lurve points, s/he has maxed out on you and any GAs they give you from then on, will not increase your lurve total. However, you still have the satisfaction of being well-lurved. The longer you are here, the harder it is to increase your total.

Hawaii_Jake's avatar

@janbb Thank you. I was unaware that one could receive too much lurve. And I love your new avatar.

rooeytoo's avatar

@AstroChuck – I think the conspiracy/plot theory is correct. And I bet I know who is behind it!!!

AstroChuck's avatar

Y’know, I’m starting to think that maybe I was just high last night.
You can get high on Dr. Pepper, right?

AstroChuck's avatar

@gailcalled- Believe what you want.

wundayatta's avatar

Call me crazy (and many do), but I have yet to see a bad joke from @AstroChuck!

AstroChuck's avatar

@wundayatta- Better see to those eyes.

jazmina88's avatar

There has to be bad jokes if he is just doing Dr pepper….......so CRAZY, man, but much lurve to you

augustlan's avatar

Well, your lurve is movin’ now! 29944… so close!

Your_Majesty's avatar

Preparation for @AstroChuck 30K!

cookieman's avatar

oh goodie. I’m puttin’ on fresh underwear.

augustlan's avatar

I just know it’s going to happen when I’m not on. :(

wundayatta's avatar

<—Sweeping up stray palm fronds and making sure the liquor locker is stocked.

chyna's avatar

OMG, hit 30K already! I need to be looking for a job, not lurking here!

AmWiser's avatar

what’s happening!, I came back looking to crash a party!

mattbrowne's avatar

A well-known temporal anomaly. Same happened to Captain Picard in the episode Time Squared. Time running backward. You’re in good company. I think the moderators have to fight the localized space-time distortion with symmetrical subspace graviton field. Yeah, that should take care of it.

janbb's avatar

Oh look – @mattbrowne made a joke again!

AstroChuck's avatar

@mattbrowne- Wow! I never realized the mods had to deal with such hassles as space-time distortions. Reminds me of that time I was caught in a time eddy. That was really something. I’ll have to share that story someday.

nebule's avatar

(Happy 30K @AstroChuck…I need to find your party….)

N-n-n-nn-negative lurve?
