I'd like to thank Fig for bestowing upon me my 50,000th Favorited. That's all. Happy weekend!

Congrats! Have another. Fig is wonderfully generous with the favourites I’ve noticed.

There is this fascinating way you get to know people who favorite a lot and post less. When I get one from Fig it's like "Oh, hi! I remember her!" and sometimes even like "Oh, right, that would be the one she liked!" I don't know anything about her and yet somehow I know some things about her.

What the hell is that because it happens, even in -thread with multiple users.

I notice you're a bit over now, let me see if I can't find a few favorites I've given you which I can take away.

My mental model of you is that you like advice and quirky/funny stories.

I was posting in a rush before. With more time to craft a reply, let me add:

Congrats, Thorzdad! You are an awesome voice around here, and earned all of those favorites! I just happened to hit the 50K lottery. Thanks for your contributions to making this place so wonderful.

Just go through your previous favourites and delete (counting: 24) times you favourited Thorzdad then add 1 and he will have to start a new thread for you.

This reminds me, I still owe nikaspark a postcard for my 50k fave, but she knows I'm bad at mail and were warned, plus she was moving.

Fig favorites so many of my things it's like I'm getting hug bombed. No, I don't mind.

Mm, congratulations Thorzdad! I'm just psyched to have gotten to the 11,000 club a day ago, courtesy of cybercoitus interruptus (which, haha, seems apropos somehow).

Can I sly in to thank Joe in Australia for getting me to a stupidly pleasing 21212? Cheers!

As a bitter favourite counter I want to say that getting faves in political megathreads is cheating and that I did it last week and yes I'm a hypocrite.

It's embarrassing to admit it, but Fig's favourites have often come at times when I felt least encouraged to keep posting.
posted by redrawturtle at 9:42 PM on February 24 [4 favorites]


By which I mean my own anxieties over how well I can express myself and my fears over my inability to post quickly, regularly, and in an unscattered fashion often get in the way, and not that the site has been unkind to me. Sorry, I just thought my previous post might have come off as unintentionally harsh in an indirect way.

Hey! Fig just gave me a favorite too! Yay Fig!

I wrote a comment that is almost entirely made up of 2 quotes from an article and it was favorited at least 90 times. I feel I should find the speaker of these quotes and pass the favorites on, but technology is lagging.
