Will any of you be leaving gag because of the new updates?

As for me I most likely will be leaving. I just cashed in a gift card and I don't see much sense in staying as they basically killed the sense of community which is why I was here.

Thanks for all of your opinions! You all are so sweet and make me want to stay. I think I'll give gag a short time to repent and mend their ways lol.

  • Where you going to go though? Do you dare to branch alone, without Gag's comforting bosom in case things go wrong? You'll be making a foray into the unknown, which is scary and dangerous. I suggest you stay put with steady, predictable... safety. ;)

  • I just can't stand the closing of questions thing.. I only use the Live Feed and half the questions I click on now are closed. I don't really see the point of that feature.

  • Meh, I'm not a huge fan of the update. I mean, I'm not really against closed questions persay, but the timeframe of 48 hours is way too short. I would say like a month would be good. That way it also clears out some of the no opinion questions stacked up that will never be answered unless they're re-asked.
    The private questions thing seems kind of pointless when put along side anon and private opinion. I can think of ways the private questions can be abused, and it seems unecessary to have a private opinion when one can simply go anon if they feel pressure.

    If I were you, I wouldn't leave yet though, because chances are they are going to change it based on the amount of rage generated lol.

    • And I love you also fair dame *blows kiss* but alas our love is forbidden so I must bid you ad due That was kinda cheesy but I can go further then that. DooMguy knows no barrier
      no clip: on

      Also you don't have to swear you can just say words aggressively. Like fraker , snaggle. . . I don't really know. Actually you can just do some heavy breathing as you chop meat with a cleaver. The sound of the chopping will get the message across

  • The automatic closing of questions is so strange to me.

    I can understand the asker choosing to close a question, but having that automatically be done after MHO is given for that gender goes against everything I stand for when it comes to tech.

    Technology tweaks and settings should be completely manual, with the USER choosing to implement them or not. I absolutely DESPISE automatic anything when it comes to technology. :-/

    • Yes. That is the worst thing for me

    • Yup, the "automatic" thing is what all the outrage is about.

    • I often get great responses when I choose MHO, because it goes back to the feed...
      Now I will just post an opinion comment on some other opinion if it's already closed... I'll just highjack some other opinion and put mine there..

      Maybe they should just have a flag to say that that opinion was posted after MHO was chosen, but NOT close the question from opinions... that defeats the whole purpose of this site...

  • I said I would leave many times, I will probably whine about the updates until I get my way

  • I am not at all happy with several things on GaG, the newest update simply one example.
    With that said, this is still the best general question and answer forum I have stumbled upon, and especially when I offer an opinion which people like, or the asker thanks for, I feel like I contributed something, even if that something is very minor.
    If I was going to leave, it would be because of problems I am having with a very small segment of the user base.

    • That's true. Maybe I'll just check in once a week or so.
      Sorry to hear you've had problems with some of the users.

    • I did bring it on myself.
      I came her with intentions to leave politics, religion, and social issues at the gate, and just ask and answer silly questions.
      well, i read something i didn't like, and jumped into something i didn't intend to discuss here. so it is my fault i suppose.

  • Not yet. They are pushing that direction, for sure, but so far I am not pushed that far. Besides, if I left, you would haunt me somehow.

    It is like the ownership of GAG changes weekly, and each one tries to change things to be the way he wants. That is killing this site. Will they wake up in time?

  • 1. The one thing that has taken me aback is your leaving, why?
    2. GAG has consistently been on the change always. GAG is like Venus always shifting and changing and we are well used to it by now
    3. But if you leave beauty in the Venus part will be gone :(
    4. Changes are a part of life whether on GAG or elsewhere. Change is the only constant. Some places more frequent and some not. If we start quitting because of change then we are the ones to lose :)

    • I haven't entirely decided yet my darling Raj. I'm going to give it a bit of time but it isn't a consideration. And I wouldn't be quitting so much as reprioritizing things. 💚

  • I'm staying. Yeah, the update wasn't good, but I have hope they'll change it back.
    If they don't, I'll see how things go for the following weeks and then decide.

  • Which gift card you cashing in for? The Amazon one? Or the TGIF's restaurant one? Was it really worth it after all this time you had invested on this website just for a gift card? Wish the number of points to attain them is significantly less or that we'd be offered or given more "inexpensive" rewards to redeem instead of everything had to be at least 750 XP points or more.

    I might not linger around any longer after Level 7, unless the next batch of updates and changes are worth my interest or something.

    • Amazon for sure! Lol

    • And that is only like 20 bucks. They should have offered at least $50 to give more purchasing options.

      I'm thinking similar but I might just go for the TGIF restaurant one instead since I had not been around here that long.

  • OMG, don't you dear leave me, I swear to god if you leave I'm gonna get rid of my Orbison collection and become Justin Beibers number one fan and start posting his music on every single one of my opinions. My activty may decreas over the update, but I'll never be a meanie and leave my fellow G@Gers.

    • You might just haft too stay or risk being hunted down by a angry G@G mob for not saving them from crazy llorando.

    I guess questions expiring is not a bad idea, if questions only trigger activity for a number of days it may improve the performance of the site.

They are just MHO's its not a reason the close the question... also what's up with the notifications? I have no when someone's replying back to me cuz of the over floating notifications that come in every minute. I will still use GaG just a lot less.

  • I'm not sure, it's tempting especially since they just deleted one of my private messages from a good friend of mine that I was saving and now it's gone and I won't get it back. There's just too many changes and I don't like it. It's kind of like all things in life. the things that need fixing, don't get fixed and the things that are good as is, get fixed. It's annoying.

    • No, @SolitaireBond, stay... You will Miss GAG, I know you will. xx

  • I am not a fan of all of the new updates. Some of them, sure! But the notification thing is driving me crazy. You actually have to click the little checkmark for them to go away.

    Definitely too much of a time waster for me. I don't like to have to keep clearing stuff. I have a busy enough life as it is :P And also, it gives me less time to answer questions!

    I think it's good though that they are trying to update the site. Change is good, and it's nice to see that they are at least trying to make things different so that it engages people more.

  • They fixed the notifications thingy some what. So I can live with this change. I'm actually liking the notifications for questions made by your followers. Before gag made it impossible to know when they asked anything. Which I felt like a lot had stopped talking.

    Now ever since the update I've seen people I thought was inactive for a long time. Apparently I just didn't see any of their questions.
