Like I said when I introduced myself in the myTake I recently published, my name is Diogo and I'm the Product Manager here at GirlsAskGuys.
We have several ideas and a big list of things to do in order to make your experience even better, so I thought it'd be useful to ask for your help on how to prioritise it.
Just vote or leave an opinion!
- Community Management - Make it safer and more pleasant
- Content - Make it more useful
- Design - Make it prettier
- Gamification - Make it more fun
- Stability and Performance - Make it faster
- User Interface - Make it easier to use
The topic of Community Management was brought up many times and we held a meeting yesterday to discuss it internally. We are trying to come up with new policies and possibly some features to address it.
In the meantime, clicking or tapping the three dots on the top right corner of every piece of abusive or toxic content you see and report it is still the best way to help this community and GirlsAskGuys. We will do our best to take a look at all of it.

Ugh this is a seriously hard choice to make on the poll. I was stuck with either Gamification, Content, User Interface. In the end I voted for Gamification since this website is kind of boring majority of the time.
I know this is just a website to ask questions for both genders. Majority of the time the questions you see on here are EXTREMELY repetitive and boring as fuck. That or have no idea how the hell you should answer. So that person ends up not having any responses. It would seriously be awesome if this website made it so we could do more fun things but still have it were girls ask guys and guys ask girls. Plus adding a public shout box/chat box would be pretty awesome.
I don't believe the community management is the most important thing atm. This website is PC as it is. If anything it's WAY too PC and makes this website kind of annoying thanks to that. If you want to try and fix the community. Try to find away were people can only create ONE account. So can only use ONE IP address. i know with warframe if they find out you have another account or play on someone else. You are banned IMMEDIATELY. Still this is the internet so you can't fix the community to the point. Right now besides the IP address thing. I don't think it's possible you could do more. It would just end up ruining this website.
It seems like y'all have gone crazy with your CSS coding. To make this website all pretty and everything. Screw prettiness for now because it's not that important. This website looks good still.
I wish y'all would change and fix things like how the people who work on this game called warframe. People will riot and bitch at DE if they fuck up and they actually listen to the people most of the time. Yes they still aren't perfect at fixing certain things. Still they don't PC shit and just listen to what everyone is trying to tell them. Then they actually do something about it.3

I voted B.
Actually, I have absolutely NO idea how you could ameliorate the content. It's up to users only. Would you mold the guidelines?
A lot of old users left because they found that the quality of the content is getting bitter day by day. It is the most necessary thing.
Things I think you should do.
-Bring back downvotes. (Majority of the users will party)
-Make the search bar better. Or let us search our own posts in our profile.
-DO NOT select editor of the week by just the number of clicks/likes/opinions but select them by the originality of the ideas too. They're getting repetitive and generic because of rat race.
-Bring back "follow" (I know it will)
-Limit the "how do I look" questions to only 2-3 questions per month. Because a person doesn't change that much in just a month to ask that over and over again. It'll reduce the spamming and the frustration of the users.
-If there is an animal, toy, machine or anything in "how do I look", it should be removed. It's trolling.
-Increase the "about me" limit.
-Direct upload media to opinions
-Gamification is already here. Please make a separate category for this so that some of us could block it and get rid of popularity contests.
-When we close the question from feed, it has some scroll effect. Make it YouTube style, because it feels cheap and takes time. If you don't know about this, try expanding a long comment on YouTube videos and try hiding it again.
-Maybe, guidelines aren't still very strict maybe. I'm not a mod anymore so, I don't know but I read a lot of opinions that you guys are unfair.
-I know it's impossible to stop a person to make accounts back to back but there may be something you can do.
●Automatically freeze account if it's reported by three different normal users.
●Automatically freeze account if 5 posts were reported by normal users or m, s mods, in a single day.
●Only Xper lv3 users can downvote (so that they'd couldn't misuse the feature and troll. After it's reintroduced)
-Independent muting of opinions.
-Automatically add second @mention in new reply if I tap reply on two different replies from two different users.
There are so many ideas. I'm not ready yet. And it's 12:10 AM here. I'll let you know soon.
Good luck, GAG team :)5
