Well, there are always going to be differences in opinions. According to the poll that they took, people wanted these guidelines in place. I like the guidelines because it restricts the site to asking questions and getting answers, instead of chatting.

Yeah it's a little annoying, I've had almost as much of my stuff deleted recently as I've had in a whole year of being here. they could've at least gotten rid of the 'fun' button

I agree with them. The, "What's your favorite color?", "How are you?", and the "How do I get a guy/girl to like me?" questions are gone for good. I freaking hate those questions

The most prominent change is the fact that now they are about some poll questions not being allowed (like "what is your favorite").
Report as
ah ok. well to be frank that was kinda fun actually ...

The mods will not delete it. They value the opinions of other ask users.

Oh lol my bad xD

I LOVE the "new" community standards. No more STUPID pointless questions that are really just about socialization. Go to Facebook or twitter if you want that, ASK is not a social site.

The new guidelines have gone a long way toward keeping the silliness out of the site.

My only worry about them is that Ask is going to have to hire a whole new batch of Mods because the present crew are in danger of wearing their fingers down to the first knuckle answering questions like, "Why was my question deleted?"

Every single day this Q is posted by several people. They should probably start deleting them as well. They accomplish nothing.
Report as
I know!!! I've seen that question, worded in a slew of different catch phrases, last night and today, more than I have in 3 years. Even though I don't have to answer them, I do feel for the mods that do. Without "telling" someone what they are asking (which would be impossible unless you could read minds) you have to keep telling the same answer. Good to see your "other side" out to play today! Big Smiles!
Report as
I thought they'd be able to set up a macro to handle that kind of answer but Sherry says they don't have that facility. I'd certainly be using cut-and-paste a lot.

This question is asked more than once every single day. Please read through other Qs before you post. This type of Q is just as tedious as those that are being deleted.

As I have seen these Qs every day...I have also seen the answers. The majority of those who are unhappy with the new guidelines are 18 or younger. If the types of Qs you want to answer are the type of Qs that are being deleted (Does he/she like me? Does Justin Bieber? What is your favorite color? What should I eat?, etc), then you may want to switch over to Ask.com Kids. Here is the link

I know. I flagged an answer to my prodigy question yesterday, and that's something I almost never do. Some kid said the reason we had prodigies was to slap b1tches around. He probably thought that was funny.
Report as
Wow! That kind of stuff just needs to go away. There was a guy threatening Ravenevan & me last night. I did not flag him but this morning almost every single comment he made was removed. He was ticked off because the guidelines had changed.

When I asked Eric to reinstate my account at the end of November he said that there were some changes planned that would make the site more enjoyable. And, by golly, they have. I feel a bit sorry for the Mods having to answer all those agonized and accusing questions, though.
Report as
I sort of do as well. I think this site suffered a lot when we all left. They lost a really great person when MelloBlue left. He was such an asset. He will never come back though. There is someone on here I like a lot, you have met him, Caluvox. He has a lot to offer.
Report as
Mello was the first of us to pull out, probably six weeks before the rest of us left. Still, I'm glad we came back. It's been fun.

And, yes, I met Caluvox early and have been following him. He's great.

I'm either blind, or they don't seem to have an obvious link to the guidelines
