  • What is a "yage"?

    I have seen the term "yage" come up in message boards time and time again, and yet I don't know what it is. Google, usually the source of acronyms, or webspeak (in this case "Micespeak", if you will), came up with nothing relevant.

    So, what is a "Yage"? Feel free to PM me if it's too nasty/dirty for the boards.

    YAGE = Yet Another Grand Exit. It's when a member publicly announces their departure from a site, and they usually like to do it in a dramatic way.

        Ah, thank you. I thought it might be "You all go..." something, but couldn't quite put my finger on it. Thanks to those who responded!

          I believe it's pronounced "yogging"

            I guess it's synonymous with wanting to have the last word.

              Barbarann hit the nail on the head.

              Usually a YAGE is full of, "You people just don't see the hole you're digging" type of exit. Most of the time they have not so hidden slams against members and "better than thou" attitudes. And indeed, having the "last" word - even though everyone else will be laughing about it instead of saying, "Boy, ya know, they had somethin' there!"
              "But every night, when it gets dark
              and the stars come out,
              I'll look up on her behalf.
              I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

                There is also one primary characteristic of the YAGE that has not been covered: the "exit". A member who YAGEs usually does not actually leave. The whole thing is a ploy for attention and looking for "please don't leaves".

                    It's also in the MiceChat Glossary. http://www.micechat.com/forums/offic...ry-t54411.html

                    I'll admit that I YAGE'd a website in the past, but I actually did leave.

                            But what if the website really does fall apart when you leave?

                              did someone say yage?

                              What an idiot....

                              Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

                                My favorite is when users write me saying that they want to have their entire account "Deleted" because they are upset that we either asked them to abide by the rules of the site or because another user disagreed with them. We just tell them that they simply need to walk away - it isn't necessary to erase history. MOST of them are back within a month or two (and glad that we didn't delete their accounts), once they realize that things were way better here than where ever they went.

                                We aren't perfect around here, but we sure do try harder than 99.9% of the web sites out there to try to keep MiceChat fun and safe for everyone. I belong to a lot of sites. Most of which I can't stand posting on. Too many people get too upset over too little - and like to SHOUT about it

                                And that is my take on the world wide phenomenon of YAGEing.

                                  Some might say the best YAGE is when you just leave, start your own board, and everyone follows......but that almost never happens

                                      And remember, a YAGE must have a statement that is as vague as possible. You know, "I feel that I need to go....due to situation around here...you know, you know..."

                                      Right.

                                      Whatever.

                                      peace!
