Is it just me, or is G@G becoming a lot less meaningless? When I first joined, G@G was all about helping each other with issues in out daily lives and asking each other questions about the opposite sex (Which is still rather relevant today), but now G@G is flooded with meaningless questions such as quizzes, or the ever-so-popular tagging questions that get so many opinions, while people who actually need help with something are ignored unless they are well-known on here. And if they are noticed, they are judged.
A few people have felt like this I have noticed, and I have started to notice a little. Does anyone else believe that G@G is losing it's original purpose?
- Yes, of course G@G is still about giving advice.41% (20)49% (23)45% (43)Vote

I have to say, GaG is starting to lose its original vision. The true advice-seeking questions get drowned out by the socialization questions (ex. "tag XYZ here"), and the newer flock of users seem to overall be more focused by socializing and gaining popularity for popularity's sake.
When back in 2013 before "The New GaG", the most popular users were the ones that gave the best advice. Now the most popular users are popular because they campaign hard for that GaG social status like a Presidential election, and doesn't have jack shit to do with their advice they give.
I'm part of the old school GaG users, I'm here and gained my reputation here by being an excellent advice giver. I never campaigned here and made social moves here "to be popular", it just happened.
People always socialized on GaG from what I have seen being here from 2010 onwards, but the advice people give here on GaG presently, on average, is lowering in quality, insight, and care.3
