Anyone else notice all the deactivations of accounts?

I've noticed A LOT of people on here suddenly deactivating their accounts. Really active and popular ones, even.

Anyone else notice it? Anyone know why?

It freaks me out when I see a follower or following if mine is gone because I don't expect it and I never know why. Good friends of mine have totally disappeared for no apparent reason...

All those down votes were not from me, by the way. Probably just another creeper.

  • Didn't notice, but i also have my days where I am not really going on the site much. I don't really follow user names around or anything.

    Honestly people leaving I'd imagine would have to do with redundancy. A lot of people keep asking the same questions over and over again.

  • It's probably because it takes to many points to get an Amazon gift card. It's probably best if the website lowers it back to 4,000 points 😏

  • So many members are 13 or 14, are inherently faddish in the first place, always chasing the latest 'cool' site.

    we older folks more and more feel out of place! Even 22 year old 'old folks!

    • This is the only site I'm on, other than planetminecraft. That's not what I'm talking about, anyway. Most of the ones leaving are the popular ones with lots of xper and followers and questions and all that stuff. The one lots if people knew and liked.

  • Haven't really noticed it.
    Now that you mention it, I haven't seen yaddayaddad02 or whatever his exact name was for a while.
    He probably got tired of people calling him old. I saw him getting really disrespected in General lately.

    • I've noticed a lot just suddenly leaving in the past couple weeks.

  • Even though I'm not as active on here anymore yes I have noticed. Over the past two years I've watched a lot of good people go. Some just randomly stop checking gag, never to be seen again.

    • Yes, like @MatthewCurtis
      His account is still here, but he hasn't been here for a long time. I think the last time he messaged me was November.

  • UI wonder if I was to deactivate my account today who would miss me Tommorow on here? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRLSQDCkcaA

    • @kain7th and some more that I'm not exactly sure on their usernames

    • I have no idea why they're leaving. Maybe they just don't wanna be part of this site anymore. Or they could be creating new accounts...

    • I thought of that, too. It's odd, though.

  • I haven't noticed at all mainly because I've never focused on anyone's name here.

  • I think because people want to have their questions answered and maybe wanna help people with theirs, but you reach a point where you don't really need or want to do it anymore. Most questions now are just complaints in a not-so-clever disguise.

  • People will come and go. I have seen it happening for past 1 year. On an average many people will deactivate it or use very rarely. I may go too.

  • I never notice right away when active users leave. However, after reading through your comments and seeing who you named, I'm really surprised that yaddayaddayadda02 left. He was basically on here all the time. I sometimes consider deleting my account but I doubt I will any time soon.

  • I take a few GaG breaks and I don't notice much. But Yadda is gone! NO!! I liked his opinions ;(

    I don't blame the users who left. Sometimes the redudancy here gets me annoyed and I feel like deactivating sometimes too.

  • I haven't noticed it lately, but about a year or so ago, I noticed a ton of really well-known users deactivated and left without a word. It was really strange, and a lot were people I really enjoyed, so it sucked, but it happens.

    • @Toad-1 Well yeah, I think that's probably why a lot of them left, but I believe it was right before that as well, a lot of users I really liked suddenly all left.

    • @Toad-1 @opinionowner
      IT'S THE February PLAGUE!

  • Yeah, whenever I look at someone's account how had messaged me and was actually be very rude, their account is always deactivated. I think it's probably just because someone actually reported them, instead of being lazy and doing nothing like I did. I haven't noticed the popular deactivated accounts though.

    • A lot of popular ones have left

    • I know but a lot of them announced it as of today someone didn't some say it's yada but I don't know.

      I mean people leave and get suspended all the time the only difference is no one begins to care unless they're popular.

      And it's actually become recent since a lot of the updates a couple of them have said the site is becoming boring others have had problems with the age limit and others are for reasons unknown.

    • There's a whole league of people i knew who are no longer on here from ages ago. they all just come and go.. yet i cannot lol.

    • Yeah, good point
