Should the Community Feed display when people reach 5k lurve?

Asked by Lightlyseared (32238points) July 4th, 2010

Given that the community has never really celebrated people reaching 5k like we do when jellies reach 10k etc. So do we really need to be told when users have reached 5k.

I think it’s kind of nice. I don’t see why we would want to eliminate it.

Eh, it doesn’t really matter to me. I’ve had people leave me comments when I got to 5K, and I’m sure they all saw it through the community feed, so I guess it is good for something.

But when people start hitting 40 and 50K than it may be time to get rid of the 5K notifications in my opinion.

I don’t think so. It is too easy to reach 5K lurve.

The community feed already shows who reached 5K.

@tinyfaery I know, but should it?

tinyfaery's avatar

I don’t care either way.

Lightlyseared's avatar

@tinyfaery good point. well made.

I think the community feed should show everyone every time they have gotten up another 100 lurve.

Does anyone actually pay attention to the community feed?

It doesn’t really matter to me either way. When I notice it on the community feed I send the person a message congratulating them on whatever number they achieved. It was kind of nice getting the congratulations from others when I reached 5K because of the comments I got with it.

Sure, why not. There are only 255 people who have ever been awarded the mariner award. Considering that 16,325 people have answered their first question here, and 2,614 have reached their first 100, that is actually quite an achievement

It does hurt anything to leave it in place. Every little bit of encouragement helps.

If they take it away I hope they wait til after I get my 5K. :-P

I don’t mind it, since I’m sure it’s a nice feeling and folks get nice PMs when it happens. The only problem is that every once in a while someone will try to ask a ‘celebration’ question for someone who’s just reached 5K, which we don’t allow. Then I feel like a bad guy for removing the question. :(
