Seems as if GAG has destroyed yet another good thing. This site used to be so interactive and helpful and now it is just moderator and administrator dominated and makes obtaining advice and establishing interpersonal relationships that much more complicated. I have read in the few postings about the chat potentially being down permanently. If this is the case, I say the regular GAG'ers or anyone else for that matter start a petition to the administrators to get the chat back up for us. I have gotten so much good advice and made some very good friends here in the process. I am at the point now of even terminating my account. Who would be on board for a petition?
Thanks for your input. We have removed the Meebo bar, as we are working on improvements and fixing some issues. We realize some members will really miss the chat, and suggest using our Inbox feature, or posting a question instead. Thanks!
I know! Too many people have become so obsessed with their tiny bit of power (since it is just a website for f*cks sake) that they let it get to their heads. This site used to be so awesome, then all these stupid changes were made and now it's just becoming sh*t.
I think GAG should do a public survey of the people who are on this website before they decide to make all these serious changes.
Can't say I'm terribly moved. I rarely use it, and the whole "making friends" bit doesn't exactly appeal to me. Also, as far as "moderator and administrator dominated": well yeah it is. That's kind of the point of them. I agree it gets mildly overkill at times, but don't start trying to operate wallstreet on a private website.
I actually hated the meebo chat because the only chicks that chatted with me would just say hi and then expect me to carry a convo for two hours after that. God that pissed me off lol. Don't say hi and expect me to come up with a full convo after that without offering some info about yourself ya know? lol Anyways I think users should be able to choose to use meebo if they want but I'm guessing GAG is afraid of being legally liable for sexual harassment and sex crimes that might take place over chats hosted on their website so they had to end it. This is what happens in a culture that believes we must be protected from ourselves.
