That is true I love asking poll questions !:D

I don't think anyone is forcing you to be here.
Report as
Your idea of fun is not everyone's idea of fun. Are there not chat rooms and facebook for polls and boy meets girl type encounters? That is not what this site was intended for.
Report as
agreed kimkay, to me the questions that you think are lame or not fun, are entertaining and fun. This is not facebook or a chat site.
Maybe you should try yahoo answers instead
Report as
Amen, scott! It's crazy-making sometimes.

If it sucks so much swagger, why are you on it?

You didnt ask, yet you recieved... If you don't want someone's opinion then don't answer questions, because we are all entitled to give it you know

I agree its boring.

@swagger it is perfectly fine to agree or disagree. It is immature to expect everyone to share your views or to get upset when they do not.
Report as
Whaaaaat?
Report as
Maybe Swagger doesn't want to leave cuz she knows it would break my heart in two.
Report as
Lol actually I wouldnt leave all I said was "It wont let us do anything fun it sux!" because we cant ask poll which sux ask doesnt suck JEEZ PEOPLE!
Report as
I knew what you meant and even started to say so, but for some reason I didn't. I got a dictionary here on the desk. It isn't "fun" at all but I certainly don't plan to get rid of it.

It's for anyone, although most of the members are children/kids. There are a good number of different age groups that are members, but they aren't as prolific.

This site is apparently designed for ppl ages 13 and up, although the vast majority of the ASK population appears to be teens, there are some of us adults on here as well!! :)
Have a great day :)

This site used to be a little more serious. But over the last little while this site has become overrun by children and teens. This is quite possibly due to the iPhone app. Because of this many adults have left and more are leaving all the time. Soon this will will solely contain questions about pregnancy and puppy love.

I was thinking about that too, also I was starting to wonder if I was on the wrong site lol
Report as
yep, i have considered leaving a couple times because of rude, obnoxious people.
Report as
I agree. It will be just kids. Adults can only handle so many does he or she like me type questions, and I'm bored what should I do questions. For some reasons the younger the person the more they want to use the site for poll questions or for chatting. Both are best suited to other sites or facebook. Considering the way the site makes its money is through advertising, alienating the very users who have money to spend does not seem to make sound financial sense to me and I think at some point as the demographic shifts ASK will have to do something to lure back the adult users. By then it might be too late.
Report as
I defeneatly agree with odog!!
Report as
some very good points, scott
Report as
Thank you Indigenous. Trust me i do remember being a teen and that some of the things I thought were fun then are not the same as what i consider fun now. There are some things that were enjoyable at both ages and this is the fine line that ASK is trying to traverse. Appealing to both ages is difficult work.

There are adults here and questions about things other than "I think he likes me, what do I do?" I've learned to just pass over those inane questions and put a quick flag on the worst ones.

That show redefines "Magical Girl". Don't let the first two episodes fool you. Watch the whole thing, and you won't regret it!

Usually during the day it's bored students sitting in class. Asking the often repeated ?, I'm bored what should I do. In the evening you get the same bored kid asking ? about his/her homework because they were bored & on ask & are now clueless. Later that night, the parents get on ask, inquiring as to why their kids are clueless It's just an endless cycle, a REAL PAIN IN THE ASK

It's supposed to be 13+ but i've met people here who admit they're 12. one of em even said he was 10. Idk but The guidelines are here for a reason. if they say it's 13+ i bet its because most of this stuff ain't appropiate for 13- Just sayin. They should pay more attention to this. And most of their questions dont make any sense!!
