Inspired by my Agrees With list lately: Do you usually know or recognize the usernames of some of the SOHers on your Agrees With List?
I very rarely check my Agrees With list.
Usually I'll recognize at least one name.
Sometimes there will be one I recognize, and rarely one I follow. Usually though, not.
you were my number one about 5 days ago, and stayed in the top ten for about a week!
You're my number three right NOW!
Don't know don't look don't care
It seems there are usually two that I recognize. Today there are four. Very few of the people I know the best are ever on that list. Weird.
I usually recognize one or maybe two names, but today is an exception. @DerekW, @Mark1950, & @screename1 are all on my list. @ronderman wasn't on my list today, but has been for the past few.
@ronderman & @shazam are the only names that I have recognized this week. 🙂
I live to be on the lady's lists. I don't even care what list it is. 😂😂
Cool! I guess I'm not too surprised! @political was the only one on my list. He was #1 on there. Not too surprising, as I can't think of anything we've ever disagreed on!
Screen, you are number 2 on my list. I don't know whoever is number 1. You have been number 1 on my list before. SOH thinks I'm over 60 some weeks, and they think I have children.
Just to clarify, I'm not over 60 either...
I don't think anyone in this thread is 60 or over... I don't even think any of us are over 50! 😜
The only things consistent from week to week is that I'm not a democrat, and I'm not black.
Not even close to 50. 😀
I'm not even 20. 😇
Ok punk, we didn't ask you...
I'll just blame the timing of my comment on inexperience. Wait...am I running salt on a wound?
Such a brat!
Don't the two of you start talking about rubbing! I know how these conversations go.
Aw yes! That's Screen's favorite topic. Thanks for bringing that up, Bama!
You two need to go to church. Now. 😀
I'm pretty sure Screen teaches Sunday School about this topic every Sunday.
That's why so many are in his class.
Is that why they all wear glasses in his class?
I don't even have a good comeback. That's rare...
It's hard to have a comeback when it's the truth. 😂
Usually I don't recognize anyone but today I recognize 2
I hardly ever bother to look at it.
I used to enjoy looking at it, because there was usually a friend or two & often an acquaintance or two, but lately no... I have considered turning it off.
But, I looked just now, because of this poll. The two that I recognize are @susanr and @sticksandstones
It's just not fun to look & see a bunch of random people who haven't even bothered to add a profile pic. 🙃
I don't think you can actually turn it off. I just don't bother to look.
It's in notifications & I know others have turned it off. 🙂
I see what you mean. I turned off that notification a long time ago.
Wait, what does the "I agree with" notification setting DO? I have it set to ON, but I don't ever get a notification for it. If you turn it off, does that mean you don't see "I agree with" in the app? I just tried that, but I still see it. I don't get it.
I don't mind seeing "random" users... It's just a comparison with *all* users; I really wouldn't expect to see many that I already recognize. To me, it just emphasizes how many users there are, who may only vote on polls and seldom comment.
I'll usually follow them, if only to encourage them to participate more. (I don't suggest everyone else do this... I completely understand having a "curated" list of users you follow; I've just adopted a different strategy.)
I believe it stops calculating your agrees with if you turn it off.
I think you still see it, but it just no longer calculates the information.
Huh. I don't get the point, then. Unless a user specifically wants to be *excluded* from the poll of users that get compared, and I don't see why that would matter to them, if they're not looking at the feature.
I've been interested enough in it to take screen shots almost every day since it started. (Occasionally I forget, but I try to make it the first thing I do on the app each morning.) I'm interested in how people (especially those I recognize) cycle into the list and move up or down, and then off. Or sometimes just pop up and then disappear again.
I guess it just amuses me, somehow. Not sure that I'd ever do anything with the data, but since it disappears every day, I figured that was the only way to capture it, if I ever did think of something to do with it.
I used to do that, too, but have recently trimmed my list. I guess I only mind it, because mine for the last few months seem to have been not only random users, users who don't participate at all, even to post a profile pic, but have been here for years...maybe I'm just being whiney! 😜
I used to do the daily screenshots, too, but lately it's been annoying me, so I haven't! 😆
No, it definitely calculates your agreement percentages, even if you have the notification turned off. I have had it turned off for a long time. When I bother to look, I know that I see updated info.
I just don't see the point of this feature. It was a novelty at the beginning, I admit, but only for a very short time. Different strokes for different folks, I guess. 😊
The only time I look now is when somebody posts a poll about the feature - like this poll.
I agree with you Grandma. It's a complete waste of space to me and serves no purpose. The people who should be on the list never are and the people who rarely comment and I don't know who the heck are, are mostly on it.
There are usually 3-5 users I whose names I recognize, if not know pretty well. Today there are 3.
I see some users on my agree list off-and-on over the course of years, but have never seen them post even a single comment. I know them only from the agree list.
I used to have those, too, but lately, I don't even have those! 😳😜
Not most of them. Often none of them. Frequently one or two of them.
Today I just know one. That is pretty typical for me. On the occasion that I know 3-4, I'm actually shocked.
I bet scottydoesno is on your list almost every day. 😀
The thing blowing my mind is my list lately is users that I am certain I have NEVER seen comment or anything! It's weird. 😁
Everyone on bama's agree list has really short, stubby fingers.
There are just so many users who never ever comment, there have to be a lot on every agree list! Sometimes I feel like we're in a Truman show kinda thing with tons of people reading everything we write but we never know anything about them 😜
Okie, you were on mine for three days.
You are no longer there so you must have answered some questions wrong. :)
Rlands, very true! I sometimes forget that there are many users who don't comment...that is evidenced by some of my comments! 😜🙈🙊
Kay. I always choose the answer on the right since only my right thumb works. I lost the use of my left thumb in a terrible nose picking accident a few years ago.
That's fine, Okie. But you know your thumb can reach the left button, right? You are making a booger deal out of this than you need to.
I have severe arthritis in my right thumb and so it hurts to stretch it far enough to reach the left button. I can reach the left button with the two inch thumb nail that I proudly sport, but the screen doesn't register the "tap tap tap" that it makes.
Rlands, I agree. I've often felt that there's probably this large silent inactive population, and the rest of us are the tip of the iceberg.
Do we have an official count of how many registered users there are? I'd be interested to know.
@catscratch can you tell us how many registered users there are?
there were five I recognized recently. that almost never happens!
For months there has been at least one person that I know & often two or three, but for the last couple of months, I have been lucky to have one user that I recognize! I'm just curious if anyone else has experienced this.
that happens to me as well 8)
