GAG STRIKE - who's out?

I'm not here for the gift-cards, their just an added bonus for helping others and passing time, so I'm out of the strike and staying netural. In my opinion tho's who leave G@G over the gift cards being raised is proof that the giftcards where the driving force for them being on G@G.

  • I'm not part of the strike, and I think it's stupid if people are leaving just because of that. It's not a big deal just earn more points and problem solved. I never gotten a gift card because I'm always featuring my questions ahaha

  • I don't know why people find 20 dollars so amazing. With the time spent required to make that xper point you can get way more money doing something else.

  • I love helping people and that is why I originally joined.
    It took months later for me to realize that giftcards were being given.
    I was very active and here pretty much every day.

    Honestly, if It weren't for the giftcards I would have probably left a while ago (sad to say).
    I've been here for 6 years and often times this site becomes repetitive.

  • I joined this website, just to help people, be helped and be a part of the community. For a large amount of time I was on here, I didn't even know about the fact you could donate or get gift cards but I actually wanted to donate to Raven, but I kind of wanted more of a choice. I think it's a great thing GAG is doing, allowing people to donate their points for charity! I was more interested in that fact compared to getting the gift card.

    I'm shocked that so many users left for that reason, I have a feeling that wasn't the only reason though. A lot of changes and unnecessary ones enraged a lot of people so maybe the gift card was the final straw? That's way too much effort to put in for an Amazon card though. Just get a job? Haha :P

    I won't be joining the strike. I think GAG is a great site and I enjoy using it and being able to help the admins.

  • They raised it again?

    Pfft, not surprised, considering how much more active this place has gotten lately. They don't have enough funds to pay everyone, lol.

    • Exactly. People are quite selfish about this whole situation. They don't consider the other side of things. GAG isn't made of money, it makes perfect sense for them to raise it so they're not losing $25 so readily.

  • I haven't even gotten a card yet. To tell the truth I keep forgetting about them. I like the purpose of the site not the reward I get for being here. That is what my job is for :-)

    I kind of kid, because that's not why I am here. I didn't really realize that when I signed up, I just wanted to come to a place for opinions on my questions and to hopefully help others out.

  • I'm not interested in gag strike but i do believe
    they raised the X-per cause people are joining here
    long enough to get the cards than they leave and
    i guarantee you some of the ones who left got lot
    gift cards so they cashed them in and with no more
    X-per left for prizes/ gift cards then they leave
    maybe they should do away with the gift cards
    i really don't know it's sad to think that is why
    people are here for them i am here to meet
    new people and support people i can care less
    about gift cards or any other prize XD

    • No I believe it's an act to stop being picked on here. :)

  • I'm pretty indifferent about the giftcards being raised. I only with I had redeemed my second giftcard while they were still 5000.

  • Luckily, I just cashed mine in last week but only because I randomly remembered they existed and got my buddy something as a present.

    I think this site is supposed to be about having some fun, getting advice, helping others or just having something to do to fill the gaps of boredom. Rewards are a bonus.

    If people are this angry about the price raise on gift cards and it's truly the only reason they bother coming here then they should consider working overtime at their job or get some sort of secondary part-time job. That would be a far more time efficient way to earn some extra money.

    So no, no strike for me.

  • I'm going to be out eventually... but not because of the gift card. Spending all that time here for that (what is it 25 bucks?) is quite silly actually. The site is addictive as it is an fun sometimes, though recently it's been a drag. Whatever I guess...

    • Yep the price of gift cards went from 5000 to 7000 xpoints, and some users are going on a so called strike over this plus they also lowered the amount of xpoints you earn.

    Now so what? With people of all xper levels and bring active, it costs GaG quite a bit of cash to provide them, thus the increase in minimum xper points. I'll just answer more questions and write mytames to get more lol
