I just don't understand that when the site was smaller they offered more xper and cheaper rewards and now that it's a larger business they offer less? Unless there's way too many users that make bank off the system that they're losing money.. This is a successful site that's branching into many different languages so I doubt it.. That's the beauty of a small business though they care more about their customers that frequent their business. Their business is fragile so they need to accommodate people more. As soon as it gets larger then it's self sustaining and they don't need to do that anymore.
They obviously have some good marketing and financial advisers this site now. They pretty much promote takes that they know will be click bait which are usually controversial subjects rather than things that actually help people. It's starting to turn into BuzzFeed 2.0. I'll bet they bring in fun interactive quizzes to test personality and other such shit soon.
Anyway I miss the old days on the website to be honest. I've been using this site less and less for this reason. I'll probably leave at some point in the near future. I just wish that meant something by someone leaving who has been here for 4-5 years but it doesn't.
1. Little princess Amazon gift cards are a privilege not a right :) 2. The idea of GAG is to get people opine more while getting more members into the fold 3. They are quite justified with what they do 4. They can & should be allowed to get away if they stop Amazon cards altogether :) 5. Going on a GAG strike will only lower your hard earned Xpers further cause you have abstained from logging in :) 6. I'd rather that, if you want to collect people to write together to the admin citing your displeasure with this situation. GAG is a user friendly site and end of the day members are what make GAG :) The young generation mustn't resort to negative approaches like blackouts and strikes :)
That's just dumb, they don't have to give anything away if they don't want to and I remember Klaatu51 saying he got a $20 gift card every other day basically. Dude needs to get a life, sorry dude just being honest, there's a whole world out for you to explore and things to do.
So a strike? Does that mean that until they lower the minimum back down, you and all the others will not post on here. And since they will not lower it you will never post again? It will be interesting to see who sticks with that, starting with @Klaatu51. I don't even think he sleeps. lol
It sucks but it's actually still amazing to think that you can get that kind of reward just for answering questions. This site is under no obligation to give anything to us so I think I'm just happy that there are rewards even if we need to work harder.
