Editors' myTakes, are they becoming dull?

Editors are required to write a number of mytakes monthly. And from what I've noticed is that this has produced a bunch of dry, pointless myTakes that really didn't have to be created. They get complimented for it anyways in the comments, but it's almost never special anymore.

  • It happens sometimes when people feel the pressure to produce content, even if they do not have quality ideas in mind.

      Yup. I remember the olden days of GAG where there were not many takes but the takes were great

  • OMG your mean encouraging quantity over quality isn't like a GOOD idea?

    Whaaaaaat?

      Then why did they get so crappy? They used to be good!

      The problem isn't that they're about relationships and stuff, the problem is they're not interesting anymore. They actually make no sense and have no point in being written

      So is that what everyone's doing? Writing what THEY think is interesting? And none of it works?

    • 26d

      Well, people read and comment on them so obviously some people find them interesting.

      Again, if there is no content that YOU find interesting, write some.

  • MyTakes have always been dull...

      Ik but especially now

  • Like anything, it gets old and saturated. Nothing left to say.
    I've been making brownie points on asking questions and it gets me more ahead.
    Maybe time for a change.

      I had no idea there was a minimum haha

      I only write them when something is on my mind and I think it'll make a good topic.

  • Everything I have ever written has been my idea, noone has ever forced me to write anything I didn't want to

      I would never publish anything if I just wrote it cuz I "wanted to." Why would anybody do that?

    • 25d

      i because i do these things for myself. writing things gets them off my mind, i have over 100 journal pages with my thoughts in them and i can turn them into a book which i will, it will be a book about my thoughts which in the future be important to someone. i have documents on my computer that float around the internet in purely text format, they have not been altered at all, they are written in notepad lol. strangers on the internet respect the integrity of documents and circulate them if the information is worth something. i just feel like doing something with my life makes me a better person and i choose to do this. writing can be a great skill you know.

  • I'm glad I'm not an editor.

      Same. They're actually conveyor belts

  • GaG doesn't care about quality, really, as long as the myTakes get clicks. Clicks = advertising revenue.
