There are things I like about it, like messaging and the look. Things I don't like, avatars are tiny and it's hard to see new stuff. I like it overall and am getting used to it. I was seeing people react and some were crazy. so mad and upset about the dumbest shit, only seconds after seeing it, before even trying to use it. I still don't see how navigation is harder like they say. I got to thinking. Were you ready to hate the new gag before you even saw it? I feel like most people who are acting so whack were and I can't wrap my head around it. Thoughts?
Most Helpful Girl
I guess they were. I even saw some people complaining about not being guru's anymore. It's kind of silly and it made me chuckle a bit. Don't get me wrong, I encourage it when people suggest helpful things or when they voice their opinion on something.
But complaining about "answers" being re-named as "opinions" and complaining about not being guru's anymore, is just an overreaction.
The site needs some improvements, but overall it looks alright. There are things I like about the new gag : the messaging system, the changes considering our profile information, the fact that we cannot see how many down-votes or up-votes an answer has unless we vote too -that was brilliant, even I have to admit it-, the extra +3 points when I am the first to answer, the blocking system and the fact that we can choose which categories to "follow".
Of course there are obviously things I don't particularly like: the "comment is either too long or too short" -it gets on my nerves-, the way too many categories -I mean that was unnecessary in my opinion because gag doesn't even have THAT much traffic-, the avatars are too small, I don't like having "followers" and I also do not enjoy "following" people, it's umm too indirect. That's personal though because I was never into the "Twitter" thing :p.
Anyway, I understand that it takes a lot of time and effort to make a site presentable so I expected the changes to be a lot less satisfying. That's just me though. I will probably be disliked for this answer but that's what I believe.2
