I am trying to understand whether having a lot of fans has any meaning.

  • Hero
People usually fan others for one of two reasons: they are interested in that person or they want to send that other person a fan message.
Hero
  • Hero
I don't know if that helps or not.

Usually because they are interested in the person either by the chat or by working with the person who asked the question
Hero
  • Hero
It's an interesting thing to discuss. Are you thinking about making changes to it?
Geometry_Hater
  • Geometry_Hater
Interestingly enough once you fan someone you cannot un-fan them
Hero
  • Hero

I would say same as Hero however I have seen that other fan each other just for experience (but I haven't noticed that it adds experience or I just don't know to which group it adds experience :D)

i think becoming a fan of someone is like supporting his work,experience,knowledge ect.

Fanning does not give you experience, no. Experience at the moment is reserved for specific groups, and fans are a global concept.

This is a great discussion. So, to recap: 1. When you are interested in that person (in reverse, people with a lot of fans have been found interesting x times) 2. When you want to say something in private - a kluge for private message, except not really private. 3. When someone has helped you ( yes, more fans, you have been found helpful more often) 4. When you think someone is smart (documents perception of intelligence) 5. You support them, ie. like #1 you find them interesting. 6. Someone liked your attitude to learning, wanting to learn etc. (So tells me that you have a good attitude.) So positive things. So Number of Fans can globally report on Positive Attributes. Yes?

7. People fan someone to gain an Xp. (Sorry Tomas, I was waiting for Shadowfiend) (so here I could not really tease out the self serving motive, I fan you to get me points.)
sasogeek
  • sasogeek
I fan people most often than not because i think they need help due to their previous questions, when they notice i fanned them, sometimes, some of them do fan me back, we establish a connection through that and they can ask me to help them personally via "testimonials"... I fan others cos I think they're smarter than me and I can get help from them anytime... at least once they notice i fanned them, i have their attention cos not everyone uses the chat actually... I also do fan others because (I'll tell the truth), simply, they are girls... that's all :D that said though, i haven't fanned all the ppl i think are smarter than me cos I can always talk to them if the need be someway somehow without necessarily being their fan
Preetha
  • Preetha
8. To connect to people (ahem, girls) (So when someone has a lot of fans, they are people that other users have wanted to connect to, to get to know, to become a friend of, so OpenStudy is not a lonely place anymore. SO people with a lot of fans are Socially Liked) How about that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well it's no necessary for xp, it was only my assumption and, as shadowfiend said you don't get xp, but anyway there are people who just say "fan me, I will fan you back" , I just saw it like one hour ago
Preetha
  • Preetha
But you had a gif for proof
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh also about girls, I saw in chat someone saying "when you have a woman picture you get more fans" and then someone answered "oh cool, I will put sexy girl to get more fans" :D
Preetha
  • Preetha
That is so funny. Serves them right. AAAAH.
anonymous

As I understand uou don't get xp when fanned, it's just shows that you do
Preetha
  • Preetha
You are right, I just checked.
