You have no new alerts

I woke up 04:45 AM this morning, and got 17 alerts.
I’m alive again.
Not sure I've ever gotten 17 alerts in a day, LOL. Well, maybe from several of those hot-button threads, but they're usually gone in less than 24 hours.

Believe me. Yesterday afternoon, all of a sudden, I got the dreaded You Have No New Alerts (YHNNA) message.
That’s why I initiated this cathartic thread.
I think that if you click the Alert icon too often, and you don’t get new likes/quotes in between, that may happen.
Anyone that tells you they don't get even the slightest high from alerts is lying, but I honestly never click on the Alerts icon/link except to see on unusually busy days which replies I might have missed. I'm guessing this was somewhat tongue-in-cheek on your part but I certainly wouldn't encourage this unhealthy habit!

Lord said help those that help themselves. Time for an alert.

No, it does not.
The only automanoeuver possible is the autoquote.
Autolike and autotag are not feasible.
A rather ingenious maneuver (or two), but figured it wouldn't work cuz I quote my dissertations all the time and have never been alerted for it.

Being popular doesn't come easy. Just ask Novak.

Don't take it personally.

Likes aren't as big as they used to be. ;);)
So likes gain value as they age, good.
I can’t imagine how much the first like awarded in TTW would be worth, and I am curious from what date it was.
Also, I believe that a like from a banned or leaving user may be more valuable than that of an active user.

I like the way you're thinking here.

And we are agreed that the floor should be open for discussion about ways to develop the craft.

Absolutely, there is a distinct vintage quality to the now-musty early L's. A charming, piquant aftertaste.

The nouveau L comes across as cheaper. Lacking any authority whatsoever. :(
 
Nice. Do you have a song for everything?
(Please avoid replying with another song)
Was disappointed not to have received an alert acknowledging receipt of my proposal for action.

Am I to interpret this as disinterest? Ambivalence is an unfortunate side effect of it all.
 
You should not be anxious.
The thread maybe has not yet to reach the whole of its target.
In that instance, my "target" was you.

As I quoted you in my reply.

And while there is not a deadline, per se, for your counterproposal, I do wish to develop something more cohesive.

Either way, I will not take the indifference personally. I have simply made note of it.

It maybe did not reach the whole of me, only outer layers. I may have a dissociated personality, proof of that is that I visit Surrowsch thread, Spencer threads, GPPD, etc.
Tomorrow my alter Zelig may say something.

Well, there is value to self-awareness.

Which brings me to my next point: Is the like in its current iteration somewhat one-dimensional?

Perhaps the "variable like" may be more likely to reach the more, shall we say, inaccessible personality. :unsure:

Yes. Like is in most cases, almost one-dimensionally only. And it’s personally “policied”, meaning each person has a personal policy which is very difficult to change.
