Boards Index General discussion Getting serious JC Poll of Polls

Has the removal of guests from all rooms on Just Chat made the site better or worse?

I have tried to make the question as neutral as possible to avoid any accusations of bias;

    I am sure most users are aware of the changes that have been made by now and the fallout they seem to have caused.

    We have had plenty of time to digest the multitude of opinions and discuss the wisdom of making the changes (or lack thereof).

    There have been claims made on all sides. And counter claims. And counter-counter claims…

    The changes have been in place for a week and I propose letting this poll run for a week from today so that most that still use this site will have a chance to vote.

    My only concern is that many of the old guard have fled already and won’t or can’t participate, including of course the guests and those that have been banned, ridiculed or smeared for voicing their concerns.

    It will hopefully give some clarity about the general mood of those still here however, which might prove useful in moving the discussion forward.

    This is example of the difference between stated and revealed preference.

    People will state that they prefer the chat without guests because it’s the current status quo.

    However their revealed preference is that they in fact prefer guests, this is proven by the following:

    1. When the members only room was opened nobody used it
    2. When guests were banned from F2 and F3 everyone from F2 migrated to F1 and F2 became empty, and usage of F3 dropped significantly also
    3. When guests were banned from F1 several people left the site

    What people reveal though their actual actions is a more accurate reflection of what they actually think than what they state when asked.

    Just wondering what your opinion would be if the vote of “Worst” had won. From now on should we only accept the losing vote as the winner ? Trying to work out your logic ?

    There are less chatters than usual but there are more registered chatting and increasing all the time. and what is really nice to see is  the art of conversations has returned to JC

    There are a few guests i haven’t seen register  yet which i would really like to see

    Firstly this is a poll, not a vote. There is no winner or loser. Sampling board user’s opinion of the chat room is a flaw in the methodology, but perhaps this isn’t important.

    I’m applying a variation of Paul Samuelson’s stong axiom of revealed preference.

    I thought that it was self explanatory, but the general idea is that a stated preference of a person (what they say they want) are often different than their revealed preference (what products/services they actually buy or use). There are a number of reasons why this can happen depending on what is being asked.

    Which do you think is a more accurate indicator of what people really think, what they say, or what they do?

    Maybe drac should get more dead people to vote for worse.

    “So dead people voted. And I think the number is close to 5,000 people !”

    trump referring to the Georgia vote.

    Still not sure how accurate a poll on this can be when guests can’t vote … but hey.

    Indeed Ari or the members who were banned for speaking out such as Merlin, Guru, Tracy and Whizz.

    I am sure the result would have been very different had the poll been ran before the changes were brought in unannounced.

    I did already address this issue but Kent has intentionally glossed over it in her desire to make her point and try to ridicule me;

    ‘My only concern is that many of the old guard have fled already and won’t or can’t participate, including of course the guests and those that have been banned, ridiculed or smeared for voicing their concerns.’

    In fact she’s really just proving my point about ridiculing and smearing any dissenters.

    Still, at least the site’s flourishing now, right!?  :wacko:
