I wrote a whole 2000 character answer and GAG told me it was too long or short, but I could not go over 2000 characters, it wouldn't let me. so It did not send the question and then I lost everything I wrote, and I was trying to give advice to a kid who needed help with his batting skills for base ball. any other problems you see. The set up isn't bad and I like that there are more options for questions.
I do feel however that this has become a google+ website and ahhh me no likey google+ anymore
Overall though its not really bad. It is more like a modern social network which I kind of like only for mobile device. I like that there are more categories to place questions. One of the thing I don't like at the small lightly shaded words
The sentences that say 'so and so wrote an opinion' on this question. These sentences should be darker I think or maybe have a special color apart from what is around it
When typing anything on G@G, it's a good idea to keep an eye on the counter (top right above the box). When it's okay to send, the first number will be green. When it's either over or under, that first number will be red.
This will help people know before hitting submit :-)
The main issue I have been having is with answering questions. Sometimes when I go to leave a response, if the question's category gets changed during the process I'll get an error message when I finally go to submit my Opinion. I'm a bit wary of answering questions without a category / topic now, but usually my browser saves what I've typed if I go back, at least.
Oh, that ain't good :( And here's a trick. Next time when you go to ask a long question or give a long answer, you should copy it just in case so you can paste it if something like that ever happens again.
Even earlier on GAG I'd always leave at least 15 to 20 characters pending before hitting send / submit. Programming languages don't see the words we type they calculate weight or stuff (I'm no techie, I assume based on experience), this helps in sending off the answer / comment / opinion w/o hitches :)
I find the new GAG very positive, proactive and trendy - I like using it, it's faster too :D
Just copy what you had written, refresh the page then paste it... I've had one or two 404 errors, but the old GAG had a similar issue. Same as the issue that my notifications have to be opened twice to be registered as read, they're in no way 'new' issues.
