What happened to you?

ask.com used to be the best place ever. I used to go on it all the time, people followed everyone, you wouldn't get hate if you make a joke, it wasn't all 13 year olds, and mods were fun to talk to. NAFTA was the star. now it's just boring... my old account got deleted so 2 years later I made a new one. also, polls were not allowed. itd get deleted. what happened to ask.com? what changed?

NAFTA is still The Man, but these whiny teens and their whiny questions about whiny boybands have infested the place, chasing away some of the more interesting people.

He is still here. Don't worry , He is as awesome as ever. (I am guessing I joined recently..)

Hahaha i guess so. It so disappointing now though. I never see him answer!

that was kinda offensive, thegreatbambino. no joke, directioners like myself are on ask, but we're far from taking over, and the beliebers are going nuts, THEY'RE the ones taking over!!

I was wondering the same thing.
But honestly I think it's because most of the good people left.
And now more teenagers have filled up this place, it's sad, I know..

NAFTA? Who is that? Sorry, I have just joined a month ago and don't know much. Anyway, what is so bad about teenagers on Ask? I am personally not a teenager but I feel people of all ages should not be unfavored for no reason whatsoever. Unless that is, you have a reason...

NAFTA is still #1! A lot of kids come on here an ask stupid questions. I joined in early 2012, and there was actually a lot of interesting people who asked interesting questions. Hopefully, they come back :(

All too common questions are: I'm 14, could I be pregnant? How do I make my hair grow faster? Who likes Justin Bieber, Why is the sky blue?, Does he like me?, etc. This site has grown into a teen site with ridiculously, immature, repetitive questions.

Nafta is still here on my previous account he answered one of my questions. many of girlygirls obsesseed with mainstream boybands drive away many of the people so alot of the users are either offline or inactive.

And here's the problem. All too many of you think that just because this Nafta is brash, rude, and boorish, as most teens, twenty somethings and even some early thirtyish are, he's king! How low of a common denomenator do we have to become when nonsense rules, and quality, truth and factuallity, are forgotten? This is a question and answer site, if you want a facebook or twitter experience, go there. In my book QUALITY will ALWAYS out do quantity!

Here's the problem. Even here, the brasher youth of today congregate using this site as a quasi chat site. Until the moderator's finally establish martial law, nothing will ever bring common decency, factuality, truth, and sanity back from this chaos.

I'm on your side Rusty, there is nothing faulty with my understanding or comprehension, I can see what the blind don't, and there is a lot of blindness on this site...

As stated , the teens messed it all up . If they're not whining about Biebier , 1D or "Does he/she like me ?" , they're freaking out ," Am I pregnant ?" . Also check out some of the spelling , grammar , punctuation they use . It's scary . America's future . Smh

I wish ask.com was still the same too. To many 13 year olds or little kids under age asking "what's your favorite color?" And stuff like that, I've learned to get over ask.com, and I don't come on much anymore because the trollers and people making stupid jokes and get votes for not being helpful at all. And I still miss the green thumbs too. And I also know not many people are going to read this answer...

I agree. to many kids. questions and polls are so uninteresting and uneducational. I rarely use it.

There have certainly been some changes, but are they all bad?

I had nine months away from Ask and, since returning, have been enjoying the site.

Yes, some of the questions are irritating, but when was it otherwise?
Polls? Yes, they're now allowed. If you don't answer, they don't affect you.
NAFTA? Boring? You won't get many people agreeing with you there.
Religious questions? Same old, same old.
And what about the Activity Notifications? They're great, even if I did have to abandon my Dozy account and start out afresh as Dodgy so that I could use them.

What name did you use when you were here before?

Oh no! I love NAFTA still. I meant ask.com is boring WITHOUT him! And dozy!! I remember the whole big thing about you leaving! I was here when that happened. That wAs an awful time for ask.
Report as
There was a bit of an exodus about that time. I don't think the others are planning to return but we can hope. I'd love to see Waldorff and VirginiaL back again.
Report as
Oh my gosh yes! I remember them too. I thought VirginiaL was still here? Maybe not. But that was a huge time when you left. Even mods were sad. Also, there's a whole section for polls now. That was never allowed! Everythings so different.

Actually the site is the same, you have your same whimpering ones, then you have the ones who answer in ways that no one understands (the words they use you'd need a dictionary to know the meaning), then you have your fun loving ones who just enjoy good conversation. It's real easy, just pick which one you want. Ooh, and I almost forgot, there's tons of users who love to argue, they think no one else has an opinion of their own or that they can possible voice it because they don't agree with them. Other than that, things are pretty much the same. I have met some truly awesome people here and hope to meet many more!!!
