Oh I never noticed, I don't think I got one from a Mod before... :)

well I can't speak for the others of course but for me it gen has to be a *very* good answer or very insightful/helpful.. and for "fun" votes it has to be both helpful, and really make me laugh... I guess I am stingy with votes but I see sooooooo many answers every day that I guess I am a bit jaded, at this point something has to "wow" me .. teach me something I didn't know or surprise me nicely... also we don't always have time to vote much with other duties so I try to really make them count when I do :)

Makes sense, I figured if mods did that a "Normal" user would have to "wow" a Mod, & I do realize that you don't have time to really worry about stuff like that, you Mods are used to get Stars often Thanks Deana, & I'm actually quite curious, I always usually see mods give "serious" type answers, do you guys ever give "fun" answers or is it just your job to be helpful?? :)
Report as
Well we do but we *always* also give a real, helpful answer along with it.. for example a user asked about some little red spider-like bugs they saw crawling out of their computer.. my re was "sounds like you have a few bugs in your system... seriously though they could actually be spiders, you might want to consider taking it down and having it cleaned out just in case there are any cocoons in there" Ask really wants more of a focus on "helpful" answers, so while we do have fun at times we are also always helpful at the same time.. gotta set the example after all ;)

Thanks Deana, wonderful explanation as Always! Have a Great Night! :) ^_^

Deana, I always consider it both a Star and a Smiley if you mods don't delete my answers. Getting a Helpful as well would be an unwarranted bonus.

I think they do but I never received one from a mod before because the mods hate me :o(

Normal? NORMAL?? Who are you calling normal, Benji?
Why, if I was normal I'd flag this question as offensive.

I hear ya Dodgy, even though we aren't normal, we still give good answers, even if we don't know who gave us the helpful or fun vote. I use my phone so I don't see any of this.
Report as
I'm using the app at present so am missing a lot, too.
Report as
Lmao Dodgy! So I'm guessing you're the exact opposite of normal then?? xD
Report as
You could say that, Benji. Maybe it's because I live Down Under and all the blood rushes to my head as I hang, bat-like, from the underside of the planet, but I'm odd at the very least, possibly even a bona fide nutter.
Report as
Possibly.. but it takes one to know one! haaa,haaa!!!

Witte, I used to write a Tall Tales column for a local newspaper. One day the editor phoned and said that he and the other journalists had been discussing me and wondering where I got my ideas. Then he said, "I'm sorry to tell you this, but we've come to the conclusion that you're insane."
Report as
Did you thank him for the compliment? :-O)
Report as
Probably. I took it as a badge of honour and display it alongside my trophies.
Report as
:-8))))!

<------ Me normal, bahahahahaha! But I really do try to give good answers to everyone's questions, but I'm not sure if a mod has ever given me a helpful or fun vote, since I use my iPhone I don't see this, I rarely get on the computer.
