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. ;)
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.
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.
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 :)
what did they do? they just got rid of downvoting right? no i dont think ill be leaving ill just check in when i have time and what not. been on this site for years there used to be a chat room and instant message function that was when the site was real cool.
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.
No, I always assume they're good for some and bad for some. But I've turned many of the notifications off... and there seem to be some bugs like not being able to post images :D 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. And they don't get me off here, there are far too many people I like! You included :D :D
No I'll be staying I don't see any point in leaving plus I have people here that I like and enjoy talking to, plus as usual after they see us bitch and complain for an X amount of time they'll switch it back they always do.
I noticed that I can't give my opinion to already MHO given posts which I'm asking why? Idc if someone already gave those MHO's I'm still gonna give my opinion. 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.
I am so sorry to See yet Another popular Gagger Leave Gag Town, and if Gag Keeps going this Rate... There will Not be Anyone left to Even press a "Like" button, @BelleGirl21. Many Gaggers are Leaving, Have Left and Now, Talking of Leaving , and with People Being Bullied, or some other Reason of their own season, They are deactivating as Fast as the Day When... GAG was Everything to Make their own Way. No, I am just Much Busier Now with the Changes but I still Feel that I Need to Be here, Dear, for Others who Still might Need a Wise ol Owl. Good luck and blessings.. I shall Miss seeing You around GAG Town. xx
I definitely won't be on as much anymore. Might leave. Why are questions timing out now or whatever? That's weird. Gag was fine. We asked for the dislike button back and we got a bunch of useless notifications, less questions, and no dislike button. Wtf?
I won't be leaving, I'll probably just take another break from GaGging. I swear, every time I do that, there's new whacky updates! Just bring back the "follow questions/takes" feature and dislike, and get rid of the "closed questions" crap. The whole point of this site IS TO GET OPINIONS. WHY WOULD THEY TAKE THAT AWAY? Lol
And don't leave us Belle! I take that back! Pretty people have more to offer us than looks! Lol
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.
just came back from a 1.5 month break after seeing these updates, i think i'll just whine about them and go back to taking a break again no plans of leaving though my activity level has decreased a lot since the fall anyhow
Not a fan of the new updates at all. I am away on vacation on the west coast right now and logged on after being off for four days and it's all new BS. I won't leave GaG but I may not be on it as much as I don't like the new updates. I don't like that questions are closed after a few hours and I don't like signing in and finding out I have 43 notifications.
I don't really get the private opinions or poll closing thing. People should be able to decide when to close the poll but I still don't see why that would be necessary. Yet they refuse to bring back the simple downvote button. I wouldn't leave though I probably just just the site less.
