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 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.
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
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.
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...
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
