- The first thing I'd do is chance that atrocious characted style from the 19th century! The old one was fine so that would be a no brainer... - I'd also remove the rule that people above a certain XPER level see no publicity. Increase the revenue for GAG and use those ressources to give higher XPER points for efforts people do. - For mods, I would find a way to make their hiding accuracy visible in their profile. - I would ask a question each week, on the same day of the week, what "subject of the week" people wanted. Something that is in the news, for example. Asking a question on that subject during the week would yield more points. I would change the "liking" sign from a heart to a "thumbs up" icon. That's about what comes up in my mind :D
I'd bring back the downvote option and change the font back to how it was before :P In all seriousness, the font is kinda hard to read now which sucks. Uh, I would make it so we can ban IP addresses in order to stop users making multiple accounts once one has been deactivated and spamming their questions again.
What I would change is to get rid of the constant change. Good grief! We get used to something and they change it. And then there are problems that follow it for a while. Apparently they have "mostly" fixed the ghost mentions, but it is still following me.
And no longer can I like an opinion (or not like it), instead there is that heart. Why do I have to send a guy a heart to express finding his opinion to be a good one? When I do that I am tempted to write #noHomo.
I have read that several people are having difficulty with the font now.
When you go deep into a thread, I've noticed that you lose the menu header that's normally visible at the top of the screen. When that happens I've got to manually scroll back up to where the header is visible so I can refresh the live feed. For me that's an annoyance. It would be better if the header always "floated" at at the top so it would always be visible, even when you're deep down in the thread of a question.
Stop these updates that do NOT improve the user experience in any way. I see more changes recently which seem to have happened just to keep a software engineer/web designer in work. GAG is slowly becoming unpleasant to use.
I'd set up a "Take a Penny, Leave a Penny Jar" and offer Ice Cream Buffet Friday's; do away with Moderators, and I'd be the sole judge of "appropriate content", which I'd enforce with my Vigilante Hoard. I'd be forever known from that point forward as The Bork of Lemula and GAG would be my kingdom. I'd also adopt the motto: We are the Nation of GAG, the Place a Where Dreams Go To Die.
change the layout back change the font back -.- this legit hurts my eyes a bit more since i wear glasses for reading. please give us live notifications/chat. a group chat option would be awesome. give us back the feature that lets us quickly scroll down to our opinion ability to know who unfollows you be a little bit more stringent on the content allowed in photos.
2. Bring back the ability to follow questions and wouldn't change it because it was fine the way it was
3. And any other unnecessary changes they're making. Some are good like the fact that they even allowed us to follow questions but some are absolutely pointless and they update the site too frequently.
