Can someone explain to me what happened to GaG? Since the recent updates questions barely get answered. Why have they made it like this? It isn't just my questions, I'm noticing it on everyone's questions. Also, there seems to be far fewer turning up in the feed. Five seems to be the maximum number of questions displayed (ignring featured which I never look at), and I follow most of the topics and go on the main feed with no filters applied.
This was a reallybad update and I think it needs to be looked at, otherwise people will lose interest in the site altogether.
Does anyone else agree?
I've noticed a drop in questions and a drop in answers

I hate you, I hate your question now show me the results...
As the majority of the people on this site are in America this I think is often a bad time to post a question as all the American's are sleeping. It is around 2am, 3am, 4am at the moment in America. There is also another reason, most of the popular and most active Gagers have left recently since this GAG has been so much more quiet. I agree with you there is not as many questions being asked and questions are not getting the answers they use to.
What happened was this. Unlike back then this place doesn't feel like a community but more or less just a pack of random people TALKING over the web... not to each other but just TALKING ( writing opinions and that's it) even though they're all on the same website for 2-13 hours in a 24 houir time span. I mean you'd think they'd get to know each other even a little, right? #AntiSocial
Hell I've had people say "not to be rude but can you guys just inbox each other" LOLOLOL even though we're arguably the reason their generic question got 45+ response since we kept it at the top of the feed via bumping it.
I guess once most of the #STAPLE GAGers left ya know the 1 who weren't so robotic/generic so did ____ (normal user) feeling to keep coming back here. I heard this site is growing though POP wise LOL
yep. they don't leave well enough alone. I hate the current setup. it is too hard to keep things in order. I work from home and have my work computer right next to my home computer. So I used to keep GAG up all day long. I would refresh and check questions between phone calls. But now I just check in once in a while and do specific searches. I won't bother with the new version very often.
i haven't noticed a drop in activity at all. if anything, I've had more people answer my questions. Pretty much after every update they do, including the update which replaced the old version of girlaskguy. com with what you see now, people make these complaints... even though the site gets more and more users every month. I feel like people won't be satisfied unless we rolled back all progress and went back to the outdated, old version of GaG and just chilled out in stagnancy forever -_-
I have noticed a drop in questions and a drop in answers. I don't think it's all because of this update 'cause a lot of active users have left before the update. Anyway changing its layout doesn't make GaG a different site, I don't know why everyone's getting mad at this.
