Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sat Feb 9, 2013, 05:20 PM

I see so many posts saying "Thanks for the heart."

Last edited Sun Feb 10, 2013, 12:24 AM - Edit history (1)

But hasn't it always been standard DU policy for everyone to automatically get one heart, and that only the second an subsequent hearts are actually ones that have been purchased for the recipient by other people?

If I am wrong, then I should (and, of course, do) thank whoever gave me one. But my memory tells me that if I have a single heart, it was probably put there by the DU administrators' programming rather than by a secret admirer.

ON EDIT: As I have learned from all the posts on this thread, I was quite wrong about where first hearts come from. Anyone with a heart can rest assured it was deliberately donated by a kind and generous DUer!

and did not get an additional heart for that. So I'm thinking the admins are not giving hearts.

This is a fun idea.

18. I'm just curious about the single hearts.

Someone above says he does see people with no hearts and that he likes to buy hearts for them.

Maybe only star members get automatic single hearts. Or maybe no one gets a heart, not even a single one, unless someone purchases it.

If that is the case, then I have been wrong in thinking no one purchased the single heart for me, and if that is so, then I am sorry and I must say thanks, too.

Maybe it was the poster above, the one who is purchasing hearts for the--ah, "heartless doesn't seem quite right, does it? Maybe he/she saw my empty heart space and decided to buy me a transplant.

I don't know. I was just curious about how the hearts are allocated. Also, I usually have an excellent memory, and when I find myself not sure about what I think I remember, I am driven to find out whether my memory is at fault. At age 62, I am always concerned over the possibility that my usually reliable memory might be letting me down.

I gave out a bunch of hearts to people who previously had no heart. I think the Admin-heartgiving cycles and not everyone gets one at the same time. For people to assume that the heart they got was from admin is depressing.

previous promotions. (I also was worried because I had one heart and had not said thanks, because I assumed it was from the admins rather than from a generous DUer--which, as it happens, it actually was--from a generous DUer, I mean.)

but every time I've donated during one of these things, the first heart appears almost immediately. That's what happened to me yesterday. The whole heart thing had been going on for some time and I didn't have any, but as soon as I donated, one popped up almost immediately. I could be wrong about the admins, but with the timing it seems like more than a coincidence.

75. Your first heart came from me, Blue.

I had just bought a batch and came across a post by you in the first thread I opened after donating. I saw you didn't have a heart yet, so I clicked and gave you one right away. It IS coincidental that you donated at the same time - we share a brain, remember?

I don't believe for one minute that the Admins interfere in any way with the giving of hearts, including giving people a heart when they donate. In years past I've often gone heartless for some time after I donated. The timing of when people get hearts has to do with what threads they happen to post in, and who happens to spot one of their posts.

This year I already had one heart when I first got online yesterday - before I donated. The other hearts have trickled in as I've posted here and there.

When I saw all those thank you threads, I got to worrying. I had assumed the heart was some sort of automatic thing, but then everyone was saying thanks--but I wasn't, and it made me feel downright churlish to think that someone had done such a nice thing for me and I had not said thank you for it.

So I am saying thank you now--and a big wide thanks also to all the other kind and generous DUers who have given me hearts!

90. Yes it has been fun!

I had a boatload to distribute as I had purchased some before I received my star membership hearts from admin.... I think I will have to buy some more.

61. I love reading the comments from those I have given them to, don't you?

I feel like the star of "The Millionaire"

62. Yeah lol

must go back to those days in school where I'd always risk social death and send one to the kid who never got any valentines--in my case his name was Hubert and his hands were covered with warts. That was before the give one, give all valentine rule (which IS better)...

66. Hubert is probably a success today because of you!!!

Maybe... It could be...

At any rate, a kindness to an outcast kid could very well have been an important lifeline to him.

My sister was a picked-on kid. Today she's very successful and happy, but she absolutely remembers the few kindnesses she received in grade school from kids who defied the "mean girls" to reach out to her.

63. I was seriously touched when I got one. It was like having a friend.

 

Hopefully no one gives me any more, and they share that with someone else so they can feel the same way.

If I had money I would spend twenty bucks and buy them for the people who don't yet have one.

84. Same of those with no hearts.

All my ex-girlfriends were right, I am heartless.

86. I'm not so sure. I've always bought hearts and many times gotten none at all while I give mine out.

I'm not a monthly subscribed donor, if that makes a difference.

All you folks feeling appreciated out there, take my word for it, you are.

ETA: My apologies. I didn't see the OP's edit at the time of my post.
