I had this idea to make this topic a long time ago, but just never came around to it. Ever since a change has been made to the list of categories and a category exclusively for GTs was added, I have been itching to make this post: Is this new GT category simply encouraging more GTs to be created?
Don’t get me wrong: I think GTs are an outstanding idea, and I have one myself. However, prior to this category being created, I think we’ve all heard some murmurs about people against GTs: and their dislike for it is in fact justified! They want the forum to be more about coding, and less about GTs, which if you ask me is a valid point.
The issue here is that a whole new category encourages new GTs to be created by users that never had them previously (because they feel that it is vital to having a good account) and also by new users that are new to the forum. I am not sure if you have noticed, but recently there have been SO many GTs!
Another point to consider is that if you happen to scroll through your “Latest” tab, you will see GTs towards the top. This technically means that most GTs are active at all times, with people always posting, replying, and liking. It seems that other topics, like ones in the frequently asked questions category or bugs category, don’t seem to be receiving that much buzz or hype.
There are some great aspects to this category however, that have probably prevented further problems from having. Ana stated in the description of the category that each user was capped at 1, and they can only create another GT if the reply limit goes to I think 10,000 (I might be wrong, please correct me if that is the case). This is great because if this rule wasn’t created, even MORE GT’s would be created, in a similar concept to alt accounts. People can create MULTIPLE alts… why not multiple GTs?
Thanks for reading!
Share your thoughts.
- I ABSOLUTELY DISAGREE GTS ARE MY LIFEEE!
- I think the points are valid and justified, and am indifferent.
- I AGREE, and want to take next steps to AVOID this!
- Your points are justified, however I like my GTs.
Note: indifferent means you don’t really have an opinion on it!
