hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

Good evening ladies!!
Im not sure if I am asking this in the right place, but this is where I do the most interacting so I will ask it here Smiley Happy

I've been seeing all these post on "hearts" and I know what they are, how to give, etc. What I don't get is the levels. I couldn't find a thread on it, but I was wondering the levels and X amounts of hearts bumps you up. I am not being a smart elic, just a honest question I have been wondering Smiley Happy

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

LOL! I can usually tell with my SO because he starts getting weird, cranky, confused and has no impulse control. He once went low and pre-ordered a bunch of video games, then when they showed up he was all confused because he didn't remember ordering them.

 

OR SO HE SAYS.

 

 

Sometimes he's actually just weird and cranky though, and when I ask him if he's low he gets all offended.

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

The first time it ever happened I was terrified. He was almost comatose, dead asleep, and I noticed he was shaking and sweating really badly so I tried to wake him up but he wouldn't get up. So I ran and got his tester kit, jabbed him and stole some of his blood and the little tester thing said "LO" which means...bad, lol. I freaked out, grabbed pop, candy, ice cream, everything I could find in the fridge came back and hauled him upright. When he finally actually opened his eyes to look at me I gave him the pop, he kinda drank it and then spat it at me a little...which was a little shocking, lol.

 

Then I gave him candy and he reached out for it but instead of taking the candy he grabbed my **bleep** instead! I don't know if he missed or what but he seemed really confused and I was like...No...now is not the time for that...

 

Eventually the sugar hit his system and he was fine. It's happened a bunch of times since then and I have no idea why since I make him check himself before he goes to bed but every time it happens I am still just as terrified. I really hope I never have to inject him with the giant sugar needle, that thing looks terrifying.

 

I cope better with it now though - I was nearly in tears the first time! Afterward he was like, "Baby, you saved my life! I am going to buy you presents."

 

So there was a silver lining!

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

holy crap that is terrifying! i would have been bawling my eyes out. totally would have accepted those presents, too! 

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

Got me a bottle of betsey johnson too too pretty if I recall correctly! Smiley Very Happy

 

It was scary, I just try to be extra vigilant about nagging him to check that he's at least 150 or so now before he goes to bed.

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

ooh, nice! 

 

yeah, i would be, too! i would get so paranoid. i've calmed down a bit i think with my son's health issues, but still any time he falls i'm like OMG IS IT HIS LEG? IS IT GETTING WORSE? IT'S GETTING WORSE AND SOON HE WON'T BE ABLE TO WALK ON IT AT ALL! in my head before realizing that i'm just paranoid. some things are never easy to live with and i think impossible to get used to probably, but at least you can learn to live with them, right? i'd go mad-eye moody on my bf if he had diabetes probably...

 

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

Oof, I have a feeling I'm going to have very much the same thoughts when I have a kid!

 

Also that gif made me laugh out loud. I pictured you actually going around with a fake eye saying "Constant vigilance", scoping around corners, eyes darting everywhere...

I think you need more help than this makeup forum can provide you. We are not an outlet for your injustices of the world. Sephora/makeup related yes. You are blowing the stupid heart thing up over the top. You keep creating problems and inciting conflict where there is none and creating an unwelcome and confusing environment for everyone. I have no idea what color you are nor nationality. Nor do we care. It's your words that come across and you contradict yourself in every other post. We would love it if you actually had something positive to contribute to the community. I don't care if you call me mean, some may say what you are doing is mean as well. If you need to know  why box curators ask for a certain heart count or status, PM them instead of blasting everybody. Personally no one need anything but to be VIB/ROUGE to be in my box. You put hundreds of dollars of your own money to start a box and get it stolen then you will be on here crying about how somenone ripped you off and Sephora won't help you cuz it's not their problem. My photo does look like me everytime I see something crazy. Now nowhere does it say that we need to post our personal photo for our avitar. If you would provide positive comments and fun to the community that is how the rest of us got hearts. From being helpful and kind to each other. Maybe you should try that way instead of all of the poor me threads.

I couldn't have said it better.

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

Word.

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

I am highly confused.  Did someone use the forums as their personal outlet?

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

i feel like you need to talk to someone...someone professional who is trained to help you with the vast issues you seem to have.  BT is not the place for this.   

 

If you google crisis services in your area i am sure that you will be able to find someone who is able to help you.  

 

wishing you luck on getting well

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

Howdie!  I had posted this in another thread that ultimately got deleted, but a few people mentioned they found it helpful, so I am sharing it again!  Smiley Very Happy

 

As far as "hearts" go, they are kind of the heart (sorry for the pun!) of Beauty Talk. You click next to a post when you find it helpful or appreciate what the poster has said, etc. the people here tend to be very helpful and you can sometimes see what someone has contributed by seeing their heart count. Heart milestones are celebrated because it's kind of a big deal to reach certain levels. I think it took me three months to get to 10, lol. I didn't know what they were either.

 

If people have helped you out, you can show your appreciation by sharing hearts! They are free to give out, with no limits, and are kind of the currency of the forums. I think they are representative of the kindness here and how much others have shared.

 

I think they are a lot of fun!  Smiley Happy  Because of some recent issues with lost/stolen TSBs and some bad trades, some people are using hearts and/or levels of contributions here as part of who they feel comfortable including.  (Who would you prefer to buy from on eBay or Amazon, sellers with good reputation and established feedback?  Or someone without?) 

 

It initially took me three months to get 10 hearts!!  Smiley Very Happy I think it's a lot like building up a reputation and truly becoming a part of a community.  But not to say that someone cannot be a good contributor without having hearts, of course!!  Or that someone will not be part of a good TSB or trade - problem is there is really just no way to know if someone hasn't been around for a while. 

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

I remember you originally posting this. Well said! 

 

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

I'm very confused.  I get the impression there was some kind of crazy racist post that the mods deleted, and all the rest of these responses refer to that?  ha ha 

 

Chelsss, as a fellow Newbie, I had the lovely SydBristow explain the heart system to me and also give me the magnificent advice to ignore all the politics that have lately been surrounding the hearts.  So I just use my hearts the same way I use "likes" in Facebook - if I think something is funny or helpful, you get a heart, you get a heart, everybody gets a heart!  (Imagine Oprah's voice)

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

I heart almost everything I read here. They're free. Why not give them away liberally? Hearts for everyone! Smiley Happy

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

Good evening ladies. I have been MIA from BT the last couple of days and it seems like there was some dork who commented something wrong. I don't know what it was, but I got my answer WOO. BTW I am at 104 hearts now. YIPPEE

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

Here have another because I love passing out hearts to those who allow us to hijack your thread and not getting mad>

 

Re: hearts-not a reply to the recent drama I have seen :)

I am glad that you got your answer! And much much much more than you expected... Smiley Happy
