Is it because of the incessant changes we have to endure in the name of "improvements"? Is it because they're bored with the same questions time after time? Is it the whole concept of GAG past it's sell by date?
Anyone any ideas?
For what it's worth, I nearly hung up my GAG boots just after the New Year. I just seemed to lose all enthusiasm.
I've decided to fade into the background, just popping in now and again to do things like select MHO on this question.
For me it's the constant repetitive questions and the rise of idiocy of users.
It's filled with rate me, how do I look, is this person hot, rate celebrities, etc etc. And then add to the mix the rise of racism comments and questions, saying that everything is racist if it isn't black. If you try and speak reason you get a backlash of abuse and it's really not worth it.
I know from a some users they were being harassed.
i've been on the site going on four years. i have to say that the quality of questions has started to irk me. not that the site has to be all serious but it seems more and more questions are allowed to be posted that contribute nothing to the site.
"how do i look" with pictures of instagram models "do you like my cock" with a picture of a rooster if you saw someone with a 3 headed dog walking down the street what would you think
i know the site is supposed to be fun, but i think the main goal should be to aide people in questions about reality that we live in. when i first joined i liked the idea of a site where girls and guys could iron out those issues we think of but don't have a platform to get answers.
i feel more and more the site panders to a lower common denominator. it's caused me to question staying on the site
Sometimes people get busy in their life and they forget about gag (I did too for a while but came back). And sometimes GaG can be repetitive cause people be asking the same old questions like "does he like me?" I DONT KNOW, ASK HIM. "How do I look?" You're handsome geez. But I generally stay when I get bored before I go to sleep.
I'm not sure if I have noticed any regulars that have left in the last couple of days, but there are a few reasons people leave.
1. Their school or work life got too busy for them to stay on G@G. This site may even be a bit of a distraction and causing them problems elsewhere in life. 2. They got tired of the trolls, certain users, or questions on the site. 3. They're not having fun here anymore or may have been bullied or just got bored.
Many people return after things in life get less hectic or when they realize they miss G@G, though.
The lack of dislikes makes me feel a constant void. And the question quality went downhill, and even insightful questions go unnoticed with no comments or debates. This update was too drastic for an already dwindling number of people.
