Actually, his name is Boom Boom, thank you very much.

He's . . . voluptuous.

His hobbies include sleeping, eating, and napping.

He doesn't need a satin pillow/crystal pose. A sandwich or cheeseburger pose would be just fine.

But please make them as common (drop rate) as the other Bibble variations. Otherwise I'll cry/scream 'it's because he's black, isn't it?!' or something equally accusatory. And inaccurate.
I need two of them.

Just wanted to pop in and say hello.
Then some questions:

1-Will GAIA be making more convention stops in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area?

2-Any plans to open Dernier Cri again?

Hey admins/devs:

Will there ever be a way to sign off meebo and STAY signed off? Every time i sign off and then either refresh or go to a different page, Meebo has magically signed me back on. It's really annoying because I often don't want to talk to people and it keeps making me available for chat.

1. Announcement in next week or so on this.
3. The difficulty here is that one man's long-requested feature is another person's waste of time. However, we will be doing a Spring Cleaning type thing again this year.
4. We are planning to do this for accounts that have not verified. We're still not sure how to fairly allow people to grab the now-available names, however.

1. When will zOMG! get the love it deserves? neutral

3. Instead of rapidly bringing out new features, why don't you guys work on the old ones?
Lots of your old features are broken. Please stop ignoring them for the new features you want to create?
And even of the old features AREN'T broken, update them. D:

4. Any thought on recycling usernames from accounts abandoned for 5+ years/banned/never activated email after 5 years? You could send out a standard email saying "If you don't log on/activate your account soon, you could lose your username!". If they don't log on, their username would be changed to a random number code sent in the email.


1. I don't know if I should be scared or not. D8
4. Set up a raffle for clean accounts*? 10k per ticket, one entry per user for that single username the user would want? If a user enters various raffles and wins more than one, the user would have to choose ONE name, so the raffle can start over--with his name out of it.

*So GD trolls won't happen to come across a name many desire and get banned the next week.
And, clean as in the sense the account is a few months old with no temp bans.

Another Spring Cleaning event? Yes!

Will the winner of the 2008 winter poetry contest in the gaia writing arena ever be announced? It’s still open for voting, and it’s already 2011. It isn’t fair to the people who participated in earnest to be kept waiting for so long. sad

-I've heard that in the 2nd portion of the Summer events there will be a large amount of NPCs to choose from. Will the Holiday trio be included?

User Image


Not sure where you got that but that info is not correct. XD




It was in the GCD somewhere, let me find it...
"Also, it was "accidentally" revealed that the 2nd part of the Summer Event would include a grand fight between an obnoxiously large amount of NPCs. Users would pick one NPC to help along their path and win something at the end if their NPC reached their goal."

User Image


The second half of the event is nothing more than footnotes on a word document on my computer so I must say I'm slightly amused how something like that was "leaked." For the moment the second half of the event will largely depend on how the first half plays out. So anything you hear about the second half I wouldn't put to much stock in.




Lol, alrighty. Good to have that cleared up then.

You'll have to take it up with Meebo themselves, because Gaia doesn't control Meebo at all.

We talked about this, but IMHO there are a couple of things that made it look less than attractive:

- the development work to move to a Facebook form-factor would be extensive
- the zOMG model doesn't seem to fit what's popular on Facebook. zOMG is synchronous deep content, and most FB games tend towards asynchronous models that lend themselves to play five minutes at a time; zOMG isn't really geared for that.

Looking at how successful Monster Galaxy has been on Facebook, with about 12 mill in users and still growing. Is it fair to say that zOMG may someday be incorporated into Facebook? Would you say this would be a ideal move in increasing its popularity?

I have just a few questions today!

1. When will zOMG! get the love it deserves? neutral

2. Is it possible to get a salon update that takes RIG/EI/MC hair and chops it up?
I made a thread about it with examples, and people seem to like it. On a side note, can we please, please get some facial hair for the gold shops?

3. Instead of rapidly bringing out new features, why don't you guys work on the old ones?

5. Where are my Jet Set Radio Future items!? scream


zOMG is getting updates at the speed that we can afford. Sorry it couldn't be any faster.

Thanks for the suggestion, and I'll pitch in for facial hair even though I can never get any smile

It's a balancing act, and we had continuously update old features from jigsaw, fishing, aquarium, and community features just to name a few that we worked on in the last few months. Some people like some old features over others, so while some people are happy, others might have been waiting for a while. Hopefully we'll continue getting around working on refreshes and updates.

We initiated that project but came across a lot of issues, for now it's not being worked on.

Ye of little faith in the GD gonk
GD Trolls would rather have their own names (version 100 of X....lol) than some stranger's name. I'd be more worried about the people who would snipe the name just to have the name, as a mule to rarely visit again.

I'm talking about the Gaia IM system, the one that appears on the quick tools bar at the bottom of the screen.

1. Regarding the GCash move: Are we officially losing our discount in the CS? Is it also safe to assume that we will no longer be receiving the extra 200 GCash each month? I realize that we've been offered a one-time only sign-up incentive of 500 GCash, but the discount and extra cash was what made me sign up. Never mind--I just received the PM that answers this question.

2. As an '03er (different account--took very long hiatus), I was ecstatic to see the Easter Bunny again! Will we be seeing him in other events this year, as well?

3. I really enjoyed the recent MoGa coffee bean quest, but it's frustrating to keep receiving requests from my friends to claim coffee beans when I've already completed the quest. Will there be a way in the future to turn off notifications for one-completion-only quests once they have been finished?

Thanks for all of the hard work you do. heart
