What do you think?

What do you think about this new format for q&a's on cafemom? Do you like it? Do you feel more pressure to answer and ask questions in order to earn more credits? Does it make the q&a's more or less fun?

  • I am still uncertain. I don't know if it demeans the questions and answers or not. Right now it is kind of fun, and I can still answer seriously.

  • I honestly find it ridiculous...
    and I personally don't answer/ask any more questions than I did before. I only answer the questions I think I have genuinely good advice for. and don't really ask many questions..

  • I'm having fun answering question to get credits. Then again i'm on bed rest again, so i don't have very much to do.

  • I've got mixed feelings about it. I didn't like it at first but it's kind of growing on me. and I've noticed there are a lot more really random questions now.

  • I don't like that it has turned into a game where you need to earn points. It's kind of stupid. I just like to ask and answer questions. I don't need to EARN anything for doing so.

  • I'm with all of you who are uuncertain. This is my first time using the new format and I'm not sure I like it. I was curious what others thought.

  • I don't know yet. I think it kind of makes it less helpful. Like someone may have a serious question that doesn't even get seen because now all of a sudden 20 ppl posted pointless questions to try and get credits. I liked cafemom perfectly the way it was before. I saw no need for a change.
