Yeah, it's a GREAT option. It's TOTALLY difficult to ignore people whose opinions you don't want. Even if you think that only a girl can answer the question you have, you never know what a guy might have to say that might be just what you need, and vice versa. I really don't appreciate this. One of the few great things about GAG is that you can answer and have answered questions about almost ANY topic as long as you haven't pissed off the asker. It's just the latest miatake in a slew of errors. If there weren't about five people that I find really entertaning I'd have been gone a long time ago.
Do you feel greatly limited in your freedom in using this website because you can see a bunch of questions that you cannot answer based on your sex? No because there were already a bunch of questions that I 'could not' answer based on my sex since QAs were asking for one gender's opinions.
E. something something something
I think it's a good feature and useful to getting relevant opinions to one's questions.
I keep the guys and girls option available, because I could get good answers for both. I don't really care. Some girls only want girls to answer because its a girls' thing, guys... I don't know lol!. Anyway nothing changed that much in my opinion.
It annoys me for the simple fact it prevents me collecting xper points. Plus, i have good advice to offer some people, because i can relate to what they are asking about. They limit advice from others, so that is their loss.
As I've said many times, it literally defeats/changes the purpose of the site. I'm fine with them doing it as a concept, but it should be separated into a completely different website. Or at least a subsection of GaG that you have to specifically enter, not forced upon you at login.
9 days late but i think they updated it so that if its gender specific then the gender not being able to answer can't see the post, BUUUTT i only noticed that in recent questions. it still shows up on live feed if someone answered it that im following.
Thanks for the feedback... I understand your pain :) This is a new feature and your feedback is very important. In fact, we'll implement a new feature to identify which posts you can post even before you click on them... very soon...
I actually like this feature, A LOT. I mean, i hate it when i wanted opinions from girls, but i only git like two legitimate opinions from girls and the rest were smart-ass guys or trolls who just put down something random/offensive for the EXPER.
I understand why guys would do that on some questions. So it doesmt bother me if i can't answer it. Plus it doesn't happen to me that much because people only usually use it if its a question that is really important to them. And if there is a question that i feel like i can answer, but they set it to 'girls only', well its their loss, doesn't phase me
Plenty of times I'd answer questions to girls and the guys opinions would be mostly useless and I imagined a function like that. I'm not sure if it is a good idea and will probably be changed but it's not as bad as you think in my opinion.
From the answering pov, plenty of questions I wouldn't answer because I felt I was unqualified though that didn't stop others. I also have not answered questions because they prevented anonymous responses. That's little better in my opinion.
@Mesonfielde - I don't often agree with anything you say here at GAG, but I agree with you on this one.
No. Just less questions for me to trouble myself with answering (and taking the risk that the QA is batshit crazy). "Freedom" implies something public, and this site is privately owned. You agree to the terms, policies, and format when you create and use an account.
The age old rule of "if you don't like it, don't use it" applies here ;)
But honestly though, it's just GAG. If you're so militant about not being "free" to answer whatever questions you want on this silly site, you have passion for all the wrong things lol
it was bad choice for them to add this feature i believe it's going to become abused within due time.
