What the hell just happened? 305 MHs in a few minutes?

Is this a glitch or does anyone else got tons of notifications from their opinions?

I got 306 notifications, stating that I got MHs... 305 fucking MHs! This is waaaaay oo good to be true...

Anyone else have the same thing going on?

Most Helpful Girl

  • No glitch ^_^

    From now on, if you DO NOT select a Most Helpful opinion on your question, the system will choose one based on engagement for you after 15 days.
    Neither the QA nor the person awarded MH will get the usual Xper points for MH.
    It's chosen based on engagement: votes, comments, length, time, xper level, gender, among other criteria.
    As long as you're giving helpful opinions, we'll find them!

    We encourage everyone to remember to select a MH opinion within 15 days so that YOU and the user who shared can get the Xper points for selecting and being chosen!

    For reference, you can always check out our FAQ http://www.girlsaskguys.com/faq

    I hope that clarifies things for you!

  • Though I really hope it's true for all of you I'm inclined to agree with @DanteSparda OR it's a tech glitch.

    I'm so far safe from this lol :D

    • Thank you for the young lady :) but oops that's not the right way to go according to me :D

      Why don't you do things like not letting the QA ask further questions than be unilateral in the decision.

      Upvotes and stuff depend on people's perception and lots of times people don't even bother voting the answers

      With all due appreciation to the GAG team's efforts all the while in many things (including your effort & eye for detail in posting this comment on my opinion), there are questions that are over a year old that I answer at times and I get MH for it. Not that I answer for an MH, I do even if one's chosen already but the QA may want to award an MH after a while, I've known people to do it even after months. This may be good as a jolt but I think even after the system has selected a MH, the asker should have the right to change it to the one they choose :)

      For your consideration :)

    • Oh by the way I forgot to mention, those like me who are on side of the timeline where there are minimal users get less networked too lol

  • April fool prank probably :P :P

    • I noticed that thanks to alle these most helpful answers, you're now a "guru". You're a doctor in the GAG'ology. Congratulations :-)

    • Haha that has nothing to do with all the MHs, because I didn't get any xpers from them.. Not that Guru matters to me, I don't care about such rankings

  • MH is an imperfect phrase. Not all my questions are asking for help. BA made far more sense and because of that, I often don't mark MH whereas I would have thought about it if it was BA.

    • The truth is that the system tells every one to give a most helpful option as an almost daily recommendation that's what I've observed at least

    • Yes I'm a moderator, but the only thing mods can do that you can't are hide posts instead of reporting them, and temporarily freeze accounts for ├╝ber mods.

      I'm guessing the admins are the only ones with access to the servers. And they aren't easy to find haha

    • lol it's probably because you haven't been longer for as long as us. Plus, the shock came upon seeing the numbers. (How long am I going to need to clear all the notifications?)

    • I was here longer than all of you with my old account, but i retired it.

What Girls Said 9

  • I just noticed this! lol

    It's not a glitch by the way. It's intentional, done by the admins. Why? Go check your old questions (the ones you asked before the update) which you didn't select a Best Answer for. You'll now see that the Most Helpful has been selected for you by the admins. So, now, ALL our old questions have Most Helpful Opinions.

    That's why we all received more and more Most Helpful Opinions from the old questions (before update). I don't know if the admins employed a random selection process or they did it one by one (doesn't make sense, huh?). Maybe they selected the answer that has the more upvotes, number of words, comments, etc...

    Thought of sharing this. :) What's awesome is if we received more Xper points! Hahaha!

    • In the future, you'll only be notified if the QA actually selected yours MH.
      If the system does it, you won't receive the notification, so you won't know to even say thank you, haha!

  • I'm not certain but I recon they've maybe just changed old BA's into most helpfuls.
    Cuz I've just got like 500 come through.
