Every time I log in, I tell myself it's literally just to answer my PMs and then I'm gone! I figure I'll get bored that way and eventually stop logging in...
Then I see a question that I just HAVE to answer; but it's okay, 'cause I'm definitely logging out after that... right? 😕 Then and hour later, I'm still here and I realise I'm doomed to a lifetime of GAG... WHY? 😢
well, unlike most people here it would seem, i actually am very proactive about communicating with people beyond the superficial one off convos that happen in comments. Every now and then, ill stumble upon someone that intrigues me on here for one reason or another, and ill go out of my way to message them first and tell them exactly why they intrigue me, and to get a conversation going. I enjoy meeting new people and learning from them, and that's GaG's main draw factor for me. The quality of questions and the community have overall gone down since I've been here in the very early days, before we even got this new version of the site. So I definitely don't stick around for the Q&A. Eventually, i build enough rapport with a person to get their number/facebook or whatever else that will allow me to talk to them outside of this place... so when i do leave eventually, i won't be leaving empty handed
I have been on GAG nearly two years and still counting, @Mgoods and my Motive when God brought me here, dear, was to Continue my lifetime mission of helping Others who need help, and I must say, I believe that I have done just that. I am here for this purpose but along the merry way, I have made many a friend and follower/following, which is a topper to my sweet cake on Being on GAG. And even as a GURU, I feel working towards Master is a big accomplishment that I feel everyone on here who I have helped, Helped make this happen because they trusted me enough to know what I was saying was good in their eyes. It's not all about the numbers or just the levels but the levels of numbers of people who I have reached out to and who have reached out to me. Good luck. xx
