  • I am not a fan of this feature either, I sure hope this change gets reversed soon!

    The admins already know about my distaste for the "questions being closed" feature, when I have been ok with most of the other changes this site has made. I'm not one of those users that outrages at every little change GaG makes. In fact I don't think I have ever objected to a change to this site as strongly as this one.

    Hopefully @GirlsAskGuys will understand my objective mindset... and actually listen to me. :)

    • You have to be joking, my friend. Listen? As for as I know, they've SAID they will bring back downvote, but it's yet to happen. I don't know of any other time they've listened AND acted.

  • I completely agree, I've never seen such an annoying update in my life, on any social network...

  • Yours is probably the best reason so far as to why this new question closing thing is nuts. You went to the effort to write out a long answer and you got left hanging by GAG's newest change.

    For what it's worth I up-voted most everyone's opinions hoping that they get the message to fix things.

    Usually, after any change to a social media site there will be people who complain but after a while they get used to it and stop complaining. In this case I think we should continue to complain until they fix these bass-ackwards updates.

  • So true, people's good questions used to be answered 5 days later by legit accurate answers. Now the good oppinioners always come only to find out that the questions are closed...

    And people love to answer stale and old questions too, so stupid.

    I swear, gag staff are on heavy hane.

    • yeah I started using it way less!

    • This topic should get more likes just so they know that their pissing people off.
      Do they care?

  • You posing this question supposes that "they" will read it and care. Your first mistake.

  • One thing I've already noticed with these newest tweaks is that prior to today, you had to have at least 4 opinions to choose MHO or you had to wait at least 24 hours to do so. Now, it appears you have to wait 24 hours regardless. It's a very, very small step in the right direction.

  • Totally agree and keep that rage alive, trust me if enough people are pissed about and outraged about it for a long enough time they'll change it back, that's why they are giving us back the downvote option.

    It makes sense for the polls, but even that, it should be controlled by the asker

  • How does it get locked? By the person asking the question?

    If I see a heated argument in play, my usual reaction is...

    "In before the lock"

    • It gets locked as soon as the qa selects a mh or 48 hours after the question was asked.

  • Yeah, what is the point in closing questions on a Q&A SITE?

  • They would at least have to wait for a minimum of 8 days to close a question... now some people are quick to chose most helpful and their questions get closed after a few hours :o

  • I actually like the idea with a question closes when you pick MHO. Since that would fuck the person who picks MHO extremely fast. Which would make me hope it would make those people stop picking MHO before it's even been 1day.

    Though I do not like the fact that questions could be closed after 48 hours. If they have to close a question with or without MHO. I rather they would wait 5 days after it's been asked. Since normally after 5 days majority of questions are dead. With nobody adding anymore replies to them.

    • If anything the person who picked MHO that second is the one to blame. Since they are being the jackass for closing the question on purpose so soon. Which to me proves they are a crappy person to follow or to ever bother with their questions.

      In your case they should try to fix it so if your already typing in the Opinion box. That you should be allowed to still send your comment. That the closed question part should only takes affect if you haven't clicked and are typing in the opinion box.

    • @Red_Arrow @Mustachekitteh
      yeah, I remember that being a feature too. No clue why they did away with it prior to this update.. oftentimes leaving a MHO being chosen within 5 minutes on questions that received only had enough time to receive 1-2 opinions. x_x

    • @kaylaS91 yeah they should make it so you can't pick MHO for 5 days. Since I've noticed that's when people stop seeing it and replying.

  • Yes. This feature is useless >:( USELESS! lol SO damn waste of time or energy!

    i'm more annoyed by private opinions
    but i understand where many people are coming from

    it would be better if GaG gave users the power to close their own question or automatically close it after 2 weeks, whichever comes first. that way it would give people time to answer and prevent users from answers questions that are 3+ months old, something that's not uncommon

  • When I come across a question I want to answer and it's closed is the same feeling of me going to my favorite shoe store or whatever and see the sign "closed".
    "Oh no I have to go back home, I came for nothing :'( " or in this case " Ugh, I have to go back to the Live Feed, I clicked for nothing"
