Like I used to come here to be entertained but now it's so boring. Like where is the excitement and some interesting people... I feel like everyone interesting has left or barely comes on anymore. I also feel like these stupid updates make it difficult to navigate. Like I'm barely following anyone and id like to see what they are saying versus all these childish questions... Smh this site is going down hill in my opinion who agrees? One last item to bitch about or suggest what Ever. But there should totally be a filter so we can read questions opinions from specific age ranges kinda thing. I think that would be a very big improvement 💁🏼
It happened because you don't see what's actually popular, you CAN'T see the ACTUAL activity, the spicy stuff where stuff is going on. You can't filter globally for people who "commented on" something.
What sucks about this is that this also means that as a moderator, you can't really keep track of opinion comments around the site at all, unless you literally follow everyone and then set the follower-only filter (which is obviously impossible, or at least completely unreasonable).
It is getting boring. After some thought, I realize that this site was much, much more fun with the old design. With every single fucking change they make the site becomes more dull, and the few issues (if any) it used to have instead of fixing them, more inconveniences they made.
Browsing is getting more tedious, the site has become super slow when navigating through phone (there was a period where glitches were an every day thing) and the gender sided questions are still annoying as fuck.
The most retarded thing this website has is the blocking feature, it doesn't help controlling spammers or trolls and basically prevents others of stating their own opinions to others. What this site needs is not a block button, no, just an efficient report system where the admins can identify the troll/offensive poster and kick them out of the site, period. It would also help if making accounts wasn't so ridiculously easy and if one email address gets only to have ONE account, meaning if they close the account linked to an e-mail address they wouldn't be able to open a new one which isn't the case. That way we would have proper accounts with legit people making actual fucking questions.
I might be asking too much with this last one but goddamn this site should have a filter for repetitive questions, holy shit. I don't know what or how but something... I am tired of looking at the same race questions every day for example. That would give users a chance to focus more on the circumstantial questions (the serious ones) or even the hilarious crazy questions some people post. That would be far more interesting than reading the same thing over and over.
I think it might be to do with the lack of interaction and feedback, making it feel like you're speaking to thin air. You can pretty much write your soul out, and no one will comment on your answer or even bother to rate it. The changes have been orientated to get more quantity in, more homogeneity, at the expense of quality.
What I've done is, over a longer time, added people I'm following based on (1) are they serious people (like you) and (2) do they ask good questions. I'm often just browsing for the question of the users I follow and that yield a list of interesting questions. I usually answer at least 1 out of 2 of those. Plus, when you get some interaction with these people, they're usually nice people and that adds quality to GAG'ing.
we all been there, we grown up, we hated to bring up the idea we all been there. young people in , old people out, maybe your mind 's been telling you it's time to get on and cut the tie what's been boring you.
A large amount of users who frequented GaG last year have fucked off into oblivion, maybe that's it. They could get a little annoying with their silly little cliques and whatnot, but this year's user base is much worse.
Well it's new people asking the same questions over and over. But I'm not bored yet. Not too bored yet anyway but I see where your coming from. I think there needs to be more entertaining people here. Like SandPlanet. Where's the drama? Haha
Yes, gag is going down hill when you log on did you notice their looking for people to donate because he has no money to pay bills for this site? Why they keep adding more updates if there's no money to pay for the bills it makes no sense.
Depends what you're after, if you wanna go on a forum and interact with witty people in a cooler environment then reddit is there.. if you want all the bullshit you get in youtube comments just reformatted and served up under the guise of "closing the gender gap" then GaG away! lol
I might come back full force one day, but yeah I feel you. Most of the people I fucked with hardly get on anymore or don't get on at all. It's boring as shit and now the few people who do get on here all the time think they the shit. They aren't.
Yup yup I totally agree. GaG is sooooooooooooo it's painful. I used to be obsessed and I started just joined just a couple months back. Sadly, I've become tired of it but I still come on to it when I have nothing else to do.
Agreed. All the people from last year are gone now and it's changed so much. It's over run by youngins and it's a little too immature for me most days. I still come on to kill time but I miss the old days and users.
