I Have The Q Blues!
At one time I could spend every free minute I had on the Q and take polls, quizzes, trivia and of course stay in the Locker Room.  Now with all the changes it's not as fun!  What is the point in taking quizzes and playing trivia if you aren't getting any points?  The Locker Room Participation is not like it was.  I have saw polls that last for days with funny comments, but since that option has been taken away it seems like member just answer the poll and go on to the next. 

The Quick Fantasy and the gifts are fun.  There is only one Football Fantasy a week to earn Q bucks. In my opinion the gifts are over priced.  I was hoping there would be a change but so far it is seems To be getting where I don't have the desire to stay on here near as much as before. 

How do my Q Friends feel about this?

The focus of season 2 is more team oriented then it is individual.  You still get points for filling out trivia, quizzes, pickems and prediction polls and the incentive is if you finish in the top 10 for the week in any of those categories, you get an extra 2000 Q bucks for every top 10 finish.

As for scoring points team wise and being named #1 for your team for the week, you get points for creating trivia questions, quizzes and polls, uploading pics and videos and for making comments BUT you must make sure that you have tagged everything correctly.  For instance, if I make a comment on a college football poll or blog that is tagged with ILLINOIS, then I get a point towards my team total.  You can still make comments and contribute things to the site on things not tagged with one of your FAVORITE teams but you dont get any team points, just points added to your overall contribution score on your profile page.

To answer the respect question, we are aware that people are unhappy with the amount allowed per day and like Jess has stated before, having 10 per day is just the first number that the techs used so we could test things.  That number hasnt been officially set in stone and is always open to be changed at a later date

The restrictions on accolades(respects) has decreased the activity in the locker room also earlier you earned points for your comments that's another incentive taken away in the season 2.

I agree, but with reservations...I like the new concepts, but we shouldn't be limited to giving applause to thoughts and comments of others; prices are too high, and I liked seeing my ranking (not that I cared to be ranked highly, but it was fun to see where I sat).  Let's ask - can there be a happy medium for both seasons - like the Best Of Both Worlds - to make all parties happy? 

Great question, and I know the Team will look to improve on things that make this site better

Next week I am running for Governor...so I am working on my policy-building skills!!

Quizzes count for points in the sport, such as NCAA Football.  If the quiz is tagged with your favorite team, it counts toward your team points.  I'm sure a moderator can explain it better, but basically, the points still count for something, just not sure what exactly....

As far as the LR, I agree, things have slowed a bit, and I think that's for three reasons (off the top of my head):

One, the season 2 changes pull active members into more of the sports oriented areas
Two, the accolades are gone.  Telling people what you thought of their statement was a driving force behind the LR.  I've heard a change is coming, so be patient and we'll have something
Three, half of the LR contributors left, but I think in time many of them will be back. 

This site is 400 times better than any thing else like it out there.  I'm not even kidding.  This site is far more content rich than others, far more.  Plus the fantasy portion is great, it's a fun way to interact with your friends, if you're not doing it try it.  I'll play, just let me know and I'll send an invite, be happy to help you get set up too (I'll even help you pick your players). 

Hang in there Gina, I felt the same way last week, but feeling better today...
I love Season two!

There is definitely a lull in the locker room right now. I mean I used to answer some good polls and they made for great reading and entertainment. Now there are probably one or 2 fun polls a day. Trivia and quizzes arent as fun without points and it does suck not knowing how everyone feels about your comments. Did all the poll makers leave? I think there is going to need to be a commitee of pollmakers whose mission statement will be To Bring The Fun Back to Locker Room by creating interesting and fun activities daily.

Thanks Scott.  I however am not getting these extra Q Bucks you speak of.  I finished in the top 3 in Nascar, Ga Bulldogs and locker room two weeks in a row and did not receive any extra Bucks for it.  I hope they do increase the number of respects that we can give out, that would be a good start. I've lost a lot of respects.  I have given one out and then the next time I go to give another it seems two or three are gone.  I've been keeping up with them, and I have lost 19 respects somewhere in cyber world.

 I don't care much about the respects and accolades. But I'm missing the camaraderie and vibes we used to enjoy a few months back. I blame it on the exodus and de-evolution of former Q'ers who's headed to animal shelter...

You dont get extra Q bucks for finishing in the top 10 of your leagues.  You get extra Q bucks if you finish in the top 10 for the week in trivia, quizzes, pickems or prediction polls.  The only thing you get for finishing #1 in your group is the trophy that appears on your profile page.

I am liking lots of the changes and not trying to focus on the ones I don't. I am as active as I was before, just not in the same areas. When I joined the majority of my time was not spent in the Locker Room. As I learned the site I started spending more time there. Now I am lokking for other stuff to do and I hope will zone in on my favorite again, maybe I just haven't found it yet. Seems to me that I can't find out how great Australia is if I never leave the Carolinas. Just saying.

 I'm slightly offended.....   


I noticed that about other sites as well.  The unique thing about this site was the accolades.  With the one you're talking about, you have plus and a minus to choose from, but you don't know when you get them, or who sent it.  So it's not near as much fun.  At least with 'respect', you know who sent it and the people you send them too know you sent one.

Hang in there Les, we'll try to do better....  

EDIT:   And fanactions, I love the fanactions, so many different ways to tell others how you feel about them....   No fanactions at other sites...  Again, a feature that encourages interaction between members.
I love Season two!

Well said.  But I must say that as a "sports novice" ... that is, I'm one who likes football and basketball, but not enough to really get in the trenches on the fantasy and other parts of the site, I miss the Locker Room.  I hit level 23 in a matter of a few short months and liked what I had accomplished.  The ranking provided hella incentive to not only participate but create polls and quizzes.  I absolutely MISS MY FRIENDS and the witty comments and quips ... even yours  .  You have to admit, there were some real characters here.  Despite your prediction of the old timers coming back, well I doubt most will as I have been on the "other site" too.  You're right, it's not the Q but even the Q isn't the Q any more as far as I'm concerned. 

oh and i forgot ... a big shout out to you, Gina!!

I agree with u all, it's been a little bit slower, we are not having so much fun as we used to it,  but changes I think were a good thing for all those people that are really into sports and basically that's what this site is for, I'm not the biggest or the #1 fan of any team, I consider myself more like a cheerleader, I like to watch sports, I'm not an expert, and in season 1 it was very easy to get points and get higher levels in a minimum of time and for all those fanatics I think that was a little bit unfair (I'm speaking for myself only, my umble opinion). In the other hand It was so good and fun to be in  the locker room, which is a very important place in any sport, a lot of interesting, funny  things and a lot of interaction between all the people that make a sport what it is occur in the locker room, and I miss that, on a previous poll I suggested locker room's system of funnies, bolds or smarts even when we can get points for that, just to tell our frineds in here that we liked their comments, uuuuuuuuuufff!!! I feel like 40 pounds lighter...Sorry for this long msg...I just couldn't stop 
#30 | 1715 days ago

Yes i feel the sadness also Gina and i can't even be funny anymore or even smart or wise.  lol  I just slap something on the screen so ya'll will at least know i am still here.  It use to be a thrill coming to the Q and now i seem to be dreading it.   I want the old Q back.  please.....

I am honestly fine with the changes, and prefer them. But I come here mostly for the sports discussion. I enjoy the locker room, but I can't really say that I thought the way it was before was great or perfect. It had a lot of room for improvement, and I think we are working towards that.

With all due respect to the creators and maintainers of "The Q", I have to side with those not exactly overwhelmed with the "Season 2" "updates" as I was personally enjoying the former set-up/layout/etc. much more than the current array of options provided in "Season 2". Personally I would like to see a return to the system as it was in "Season 1"....but, as Dennis Miller always used to say..."That's just my opinion, I could be wrong"

I thought the point of Season 2 was to start all over with points again.  However, I see that in the Trivia my ranking and points we never reset.  I am still exactly where I was in Season 1.  How is this right?  Also, I can heckle or warn a person when I am about to pass them in the Trivia Rankings.  Sounds a little 2 sided to me!

I liked the free-for-all that was Season 1: unlimited accolades, and points for everything. Initially when they spoke of Season 2, I thought it just meant the points would be reset, but then everything would work as before, maybe with added features. I didn't expect they were totally changing the system. I agree with everyone that it's somehow not quite the same as before, maybe not as fun, but I also like the fact that there's not so much needless bickering in the Locker Room as before; it had really reached a fever pitch right at the Season 1-2 transition, and then all the disaffected left to find greener grass, and it's started to settle down here again.

It's not like I'd ever have time to read and comment on all the Locker Room polls. So if there's only a couple of good ones a day now, that's not so bad. It's much more manageable! I wish people would reply to comments more often. It's when you get the back-and-forth that the commentary really gets funny and entertaining.

I'm fine with the Q Bucks idea but I wish they were more similar to the old point system. Like, you could gain varying sums for any contribution. And you could use them to buy more Respect to give if you wished.

And I keep answering polls about Season 2 and the changes... I think that may be part of the malaise. No offense, Gina, because I know you're expressing how you feel and I'm always good with that.

My only issue is Nascar is off, NCAA is over until the Bowls, I used to follow NCAA BB when BK was the the IU coach ( I know, I am old..LOL, but I have no clue anymore) I don't know as much as I should, to hold an intelligent conversation about NFL(my emotion forks me up every time..LOL, cos I don't know stats), Christmas is here, and life sometimes takes over. I miss some people that aren't here immensely, but you know what, people that commented, PM'ed me etc, daily, and left, have made no attempt to contact me, so C'est la vie. I hate that, cos there were some seriously awesome people I had hoped I wouldn't lose touch with. (I won't use the M word) Move on. I love this site, I love the people that work their asses off to make it what
it is. I love, that at any given moment, I can click on something, and either LMAO, to get into an adult conversation!

The Q has my, I am a Lifer!

I come on now mostly to quickly read through the polls..i dont participate as much as i used to. Again its not easy to make friends and YES i have tried over and over. A certain person did tell me if i put my pic up i would get alot of attention and make many friends, not sure they are the type of friends im looking for. As i would rather attract attention for my mind not my ugly mug . I keep coming back though as its better than boredom and loneliness.

I guess this is where the bored and lonely are commenting tonight.  The Locker Room has not been very active lately.

LOL well I'm not bored and lonely but being in the Q is relaxing for me, I just got home since I left in the morning and all I want to do is to rest and relax a little bit, I have wanted to take quizzes and trivia as I used to do in season 1, but I don't know if it's my compu, my internet conection or the site that is sooooo slow, I have to refresh the site a lot!, Still miss the old accolades system and I hope we could have a better way to show or appreciaton for everybody else's comments or more respects maybe, 10 are not enough

Maybe this is something we have to report to mods so the webmasters do something about it. About the accolades, still waiting for a change. :(

I  have been spending most of my time on the Cubs page, I don't like having to decide what was funnier or smarter to give a respect too. But I do miss the locker room and how it used to be.

As for scoring points team wise and being named #1 for your team for the week, you get points for creating trivia questions, quizzes and polls, uploading pics and videos and for making comments BUT you must make sure that you have tagged everything correctly.  For instance, if I make a comment on a college football poll or blog that is tagged with ILLINOIS, then I get a point towards my team total.  You can still make comments and contribute things to the site on things not tagged with one of your FAVORITE teams but you dont get any team points, just points added to your overall contribution score on your profile page.

To answer the respect question, we are aware that people are unhappy with the amount allowed per day and like Jess has stated before, having 10 per day is just the first number that the techs used so we could test things.  That number hasnt been officially set in stone and is always open to be changed at a later date
Well, Scott...thanks for the info, as I was exploring the new changes, I was not a happy camper at all, then I was invited to join my other friends to another sports website, wasn't happy there either.  I was on and off Q, but it seems more quiet, not much activity going on.  Then I felt more of a half-wit, dumbfounded,....you name it I was all that and timid to even try the poll questions...not know how many yards, rebounds, combined total scores etc. When it was scored, I felt more of a nincompoop and hoping no ones sees my scores out in the open. And I said to myself, do something about it and educated myself very quickly to play the fantasy challenges.  LOL! I watched sports a lot more now!  Come to my surprise for this passed week, I mastered all my NFL fantasy challenges...22/22. Now, I don't feel as stupid and afraid to play.  I do have my strategies lined up in order.  It is not as bad as I thought, but to enjoy and except the new changes. 
I'm feeling the same way!

I agree with u all, it's been a little bit slower, we are not having so much fun as we used to it,  but changes I think were a good thing for all those people that are really into sports and basically that's what this site is for, I'm not the biggest or the #1 fan of any team, I consider myself more like a cheerleader, I like to watch sports, I'm not an expert, and in season 1 it was very easy to get points and get higher levels in a minimum of time and for all those fanatics I think that was a little bit unfair (I'm speaking for myself only, my umble opinion). In the other hand It was so good and fun to be in  the locker room, which is a very important place in any sport, a lot of interesting, funny  things and a lot of interaction between all the people that make a sport what it is occur in the locker room, and I miss that, on a previous poll I suggested locker room's system of funnies, bolds or smarts even when we can get points for that, just to tell our frineds in here that we liked their comments, uuuuuuuuuufff!!! I feel like 40 pounds lighter...Sorry for this long msg...I just couldn't stop 
 I came in here to be with you all, not for ranks, not for awards, or rewards, but for learning little more, un-learning a lot which is changed with shanging life styles, the change is in me, with that, with all of you. I have no need for the rank, for being number one, as all these are ego trips, ego ticklers. for me by choice.
     But what concerned me most was that, the communication became less and less with vanishing act of responses with respects, ok, let the repects be limited to two per person, but limiting my respects to give only ten is dictatorial, arbitrary, and site administration seems to have no brand conscious to indulge in such negative tactics for its economy on "respects".
  I am with my thumbs up when I get exhausted with quota of 10 "respects" but still it hurts, OOch.

I thought the point of Season 2 was to start all over with points again.  However, I see that in the Trivia my ranking and points we never reset.  I am still exactly where I was in Season 1.  How is this right?  Also, I can heckle or warn a person when I am about to pass them in the Trivia Rankings.  Sounds a little 2 sided to me!
 I love being on trivia quiz, many times wrong ones, few right, correct answers, funny, now screen goes blank, reload means, reset. and start from zero again, nice and funny.

Well there seems to be more wrong this year than right..I don't always get the credit for respects given, sometimes I contribute and don't get counted for them either. I don't no why it seems to be an intermittent thing with me. I have been keeping track and it does not talley correctly. I wonder why I make trivia questions now if I don't get proper talley for it in my contributions and I certainly don't see points being shown to everyone that they have been taken. Same with quizes...so why make any? If you are looking for respect I guess just go to the locker room and bs on polls and rack up the points. I was more into the sports side of it in year 1.
Saying all that, I have been getting more into the pickems and the fantasy football anyhow. So I guess to sum it up....IQ is more now for fantasy football, pickems and locker room.....everything else...well what can I say?

Its seems everyone (most) complained and people left due to the respect thing from day 1. Why are they wait? Are they trying to run everyone off? I just dont get it.
