I never cared if I got MHO or not and would help out even if MHO was chosen just to add advice and perspective. Now, you can't add any opinion after MPH is chosen, or after 48 hours of inactivity on a question. Since we don't all live on this site, by the time I see a question it is closed.
The only reason I stuck around this long was to help others. Now, I won't be able to do that consistently.
Now let's address the private opinion. What if someone else has a similar problem and wants to read the answers? If some are hidden, I guess that person will have to ask the same question, which will get less views as people hate to repeat themselves in opinions. Anonymous was more than enough, or private message if you're that worried about your opinion.
I am thinking this could be the end of GaG and me. Not much point now.
It sucks because if it's a question you want to respond to then it's closed. If the person selects mho to fast then it gets closed quick. I think they wanted the intention to be good. But it puts everything with a time limit now.
I agree. If they want to close questions and focus the site on getting helpful answers instead of open ended discussions, that's fine, I just don't want to have my time wasted by clicking on a topic and reading it only to find out I can't comment on it.
Exactly! They need to be filtered out of the feed because there's nothing you can do with them. Then imagine a closed question which only allowed private answers. You get to see a page full of absolutely nothing. #GetGAGBack
Yeah, I am not sure how I feel about this change yet. I think their intentions were good, but it needs some work. First of all, it needs to be more than 48 hours and we should not have to wait to grant a second MHO. Ridiculous.
