Lets see, buggy notification system, the notifications that do work spam you with useless info, you are forced to pick a mho in order to ask other questions, thus rushing you to pick one even if you didn't recieve a satisfactory answer yet, not to mention after a measly 48hrs, no one else is allowed to comment, thus making you chose a mho, even if you really haven't found a satisfactory answer yet.
Its almost as if it was designed to increase the quantitative helpfulness, aka mhos, as opposed to helping people get a qualitative answer, aka one that actually answers thier question.

I love the update! Being forced to chose an mho among a bunch of trolls, just because, brilliant! Not to mention I love how buggy it is!
The worst update was when they combined the multiple feeds into one.
When I started on GaG, I only looked at My Feed. I never bothered with the site feed or the current activity feed. The site feed had questions I did not care about. The current activity feed was too dynamic.
Here was my normal usage pattern, I would get on GaG and scroll back to where I left off. I would do this even if I had been off of GaG for 3 days. That way I never missed a question. I would skip over most of them but I would reply to those that piqued my interest.
Once the GaG programmers started including all the activity for a question in the feed, this approach became all but impossible. Currently, I have been relying on other users to bring interesting topics to my attention. Now the GaG programmers have made it so when that happens, the question will likely have already been closed. No more time to consider a thoughtful reply. It's vomit out whatever pops into my head immediately or don't reply at all.
It's like the GaG programmers are trying to chase me away to Quora, Yahoo Answers or some other online forum.
You can change the notifications you are receiving under your Settings page. However, many of us aren't receiving notifications at all still. Mine worked for a bit and now nothing again. The hype will die down, but there are some things that need to be worked on at the moment.
I think the time limit is worse than when they took the downvotes away. If they're trying to save space on their servers, why not start with closing questions from more than three months ago, so you don't get random creepers going through all your old shit to harass you.
See that huge dip in 2015? That's when they took away comments to comments from the livefeed. This caused a decrease in interesting threads and the overall number of opinions people got. I thought that was the worst.
I just strongly dislike the closed question system.. I only use the Live Feed so half the questions I click on now are closed. I think they wanted people to answer more questions but I actually answer less now lol
This is WAY worse than taking away the downvote. That only removed one small feature. This update fundamentally changed the way the site works. And not in a good way. I can understand why they wanted to make the changes, but there are these things called unintended consequences.
Honestly, the worst thing that gets to me. Is that freaking GirlsAskGuys-System that keeps messaging me EVERYDAY to tell me that I posted 20 opinions. Like I freaking know dude!! And I can't even block the douche...
