If they bring it back, they should have a number of different rooms.
A room for those who are under 18. The under 18 room
A room for those who just want to chat where anything sexual or considered offensive is restricted. The PG Room
A room where anything goes As long as its not harassment or threats of violence. The AG room
Threats of violence or harassment will not be tolerated in ANY room.
A questionnaire will be filled out by everyone before being able to chat in a room. For instance if you're not looking to hook up or date or if you're the type to find anything offensive, then you can't join the anything goes room. If you're looking to possibly hook up or date someone, then you can't join the PG room .
So if you join the AG room and then complain about a creepy guy etc, you will be removed, because you had no business being in the AG room anyway. Just like if you're in the PG room and you are being sexual in any kind of way etc, you will be removed.
Not GAGs decision. Google bought meebo and closed their servers, therefore there was no way for meebo to continue running. As such, it went t*ts up and the GAG admins have been 'looking' for a replacement ever since.
Just use the built in message service if you're that gaggin for creeps
The admins are aware that the chat function is something that people miss, and so I think we'll probably get one once the site sees an update in October. No guarantees here mind you, but I asked a featured question on this where many people expressed their interest on having chat return. The admins told me they would watch the responses in that questions closely so I know that they know its important.
I just don't want to hear any girls complaining about the return of all the creeps trying to hit them up lol (I received a lot of complaints about that in the past even though there really wasn't much I could do about it for them). If you want it back, you've gotta accept the annoying things that come with it
I think removing 'Meebo' was an unwise decision as well. It really takes away the community feeling of the website making it purely Question-Answer based, except for private messages, that is. I enjoyed casually chatting with other members as well as having 1-on-1 instant messaging when someone on my friend's list required help. Now, what's the point of a friend's list? It's essentially a "Follow" option now.
It was good, and it wasn't necessarily the guys who were creeps, sometimes girls would message you and try to get you to talk dirty, so it's goes both ways but sure the guys probably do it more, I'd like to see the feature back
That's just really messed up that you would like those sort of people talking to you they are just total pigs and trolls, I agree though I want the chat back because I try to reach out to people and when they want to talk to me they can't.
I miss the chat also. I have been off GAG for sometime and I returned recently, I was looking for the chat, damn. Some of the people are gone that I chatted with the most, not sure what happened there.
