Has SOH changed in the past 6 months?
It's a fluid organism in my opinion. Ups and downs.
Becoming more liberal. Become meaner.
It's big now, and Tony doesn't do comments anymore!
I don't know how it used to be but I see a wide variety of poll questions. Something for everyone in my opinion. Narrowing down the list of people you follow may eliminate the problem if it's certain types of polls you don't like to see.
Seems like you get one subject, and there's poll after poll on it until it is beaten to death. I miss the "makes you think" polls. I wish someone would do trivia. Those Holocaust ones were good.
I'm new but I read old polls for fun and insight. It's different.
Followed! Welcome! You're profile pic freaks me OUT though! :)
I try not to let that happen very often.
I would hope so! ;)
It appears that IBakes isn't stirring up shit so I say things are better.
There seem to be far fewer actual discussions. Many good users are no longer active and I miss their contributions.
It's very annoying and quite a loss.
Why do they leave?
Jestana, there are many reasons. The primary ones noted are hateful and spiteful comments made on the app on a regular basis. Repetitive questions, silly questions, and lack of respectful discussion also play a large part.
Well, I recently rolled in so ... Yes!
Life on SoH goes through cycles. It all works out. Hang in there ;-)
It's different, but six months of anything is going to change it up a bit. People seem more distant.
Well there was an update...
Lots of new younger users
Lots of new users it seems, and efforts by some to make them feel welcome. We haven't had much major drama that I've been aware of. That's a good thing.
What was the drama six months ago?
Hard to say really. I have mixed feeling about whether it's changed. I know I've altered my own experience on purpose and so it sure has a different feel for me.
It's because I left
That's why it felt better all of a sudden. :-)
Yah I came back :)
@Okie1967 - what a cute kid you were
Worse polls. Most user polls now seem to be pushing an agenda or have one obvious answer that you are supposed to pick. They were always around but it's getting a lot worse recently.
And silly personal polls....
I personally like the silly personal polls,
I'm with mikey! I like personal polls :-)
Seems different to me the past 2-3 months. Like it's lost the community feel.
I don't know! I kind of like debating liberals, and I love to see you debate them.
Maybe there just haven't been any good debates lately. ;)
Late - I feel like its getting too big. Totally selfish on my part, but that is the way I feel. Too many trolls and immaturity. Not the same.
Yes, I agree CC!
I think the bigger it gets and I hate to say it, but it will lose the basic core feeling that we have.
More trolls and ignorant people
Only for the better, "two thumbs up Tony"...
