What's the point in having a featured question if it's closed, even if the MHO has been selected 😵?

  • I really don't feel closing questions entirely was the smartest move. Perhaps if the question had no MHOs and went unanswered for months, they could close it and prevent threadcromancy that way. That would make more sense.

  • Man I hate these questions being closed and these private opinions

  • agree. about the first 15 questions i went on this morning were closed to answers. what's up with that

    and on another note i really don't need notifications when other people's opinions are chosen as MHO. glad for them getting it, no skin off my back, but i don't need a notification about it

  • Absolutely none. While the asker's mistake was selecting a MHO too soon after asking, which I find silly on its own merit, stuff like this is what's going to be the doom of this new "closed question" nonsense.

  • They should make featured questions unclosable (because you're paying with your points for it). Added feature, when you feature a question, it gets open even if it was previously closed - easy solution.

    Will they do it? No, cause its useful.

  • Im not sure if its a good idea yet but the purpose is to create new content by reducing unnecessary new feed traffic through limiting questions that have served their purpose or have been inactive for some time.

    Creating a time limit and closing a question after in activity promotes us to keep a thread running if we really like it. Then once that questions has a MHO selected, the purpose has been fufilled and now its 'better' to have a new question open (new content) rather than having a 'purposeless' question taking up space in the live feed

    • Yeah, but isn't the point of having a featured question that is gets more publicly thus more options. So isn't it a little ironic that even if a question is featured it's closed as soon as the MHO chosen?

    • Show All
    • Selecting MHO is only selecting the best opinion AT THAT TIME. There could be a much better opinion that another GAGer has that can't be used.

      An example was, some long while ago, someone asked a question about a place in the UK. MHO had been awarded, for the best answer so far posted. I had first hand knowledge of that place and was able to give a lot more detail. That will not be possible under this new regime.

  • Haha it's like they're happy making people angry after every patch :D

    • Haha ikr? It's like, hey you were right we're bringing back the downvote feature BUT wait for all the new shit we're going to do now... Lets see how pissed people will be this time/how many more users we're losing now. 😒

  • The "closing" of the questions should be user-choice only, none of this fucking automatic shit.

  • O it's just the wonderful wisdom of GaG giving us useless stuff we don't need and taking away the stuff we liked.

    Give it some time they'll change it back.

    • It seems like the mho was selected after the one I posted was featured though?

  • They should get rid of this whole silly concept

  • Hey @RedRobin! If you request to feature a question that is already closed, the question will be re-opened and will stay open during those 24 hs in which the question is featured.

  • That closing the question thing was a really bad move. It's like dangling a carrot and leaving people out. If I were new here it would discourage me enough to just leave.
