Heylo, Gaia Staff!

Lanky thinks he's funny. Writing 'no' on a whiteboard.

THOU HATH AWOKEN THE BEAST.

...rawr.

Anyway, onward to more important things.

One: pants poopingly scary or not, we could use a little mantis item on the site. And white Dander Ears. And any number of cool things you see on the site being requested every day. So how about this. (And get this, AWESOME gold sink.)

Sell a cash shop EI. But here's the catch. You will need an awesome artist for this. And works fast. It will have an irregular schedual for 6 months. Because it would be updated when the pose fee was paid. (With gold as it is, we are talking millions. Like...50 million or something.)

BUT...the one that pays the fee gets ONE POSE from the EI, what ever they want, as long as it is not already under copyright, or can be easily parodied.

You make a crap ton of money, we get an awesome gold sink, and the item would likely be oddly popular.

Or for less work, make a mantis pet, and a white Dander ear stand alone item, and pop up a grant link? emotion_awesome

Two: I notice you have the ability to turn off the upvote/downvote feature on the admin threads. Why exactly can we not have this feature? Just a little check box when making a thread. "Would you like to turn off voting for this thread?" Because I don't want votes, I want discussion. Plus, let's face it, the feature doesn't exactly get used the way it was intended in a lot of the forums. I mean, take the GCD...you guys know Winter puts a lot of time and effort into making the monthly rig list for the users. Why downvote hard work and helping others?

YET IT HAPPENS. By people doing so to be jerks. Winter doesn't deserve that, and neither do a lot of other users. All joking aside. is it really so hard to impliment?

Three: I know you folks are kind of on an anti zurg thing in the office...I was curious as to WHY? I know the manga says 'gone forever". Like it'd be the first time a comic was retconned. The Zurg have a very loyal fanbase, and it'd be awesome to have an event that was a little out of the norm Like Christmas was all those years ago.

Four: (Yes, I am a wordy bunny.) Could we have some kinda timeframe on the summer event? I'm not asking for a specific date, but a lot of kids go back to school in a month an a half, including my own, and they'd love to see the event.

And five: What exactly does the +2 for logging in on each day for Daily chance mean? Cause if it's supposed to be a change, I'm not seeing it... sweatdrop

Thankies so much. Also, I drew you a picture.

Lanky thinks he is funny about a lot of things. Sometimes he isn't, but often has us in stitches. I can only speak to the summer event, as far as your questions go. The real Olympics is in 25 days, and we hope to have the rejected Olympics launched before then. We are leaving it a bit open at this point, because we want to make sure our ducks are in a row before opening, but right now things are looking good.

Question two: Can't say what we're doing (not my area), but I can say that any stickied thread/announcements don't come with a <3/</3, doesn't matter if it's from a dev, admin, mod, user, NPC, etc. It's not a setting that we turn on/off.


AH HAH! See, that one right there alone answered a lot of questions!

Now the trick is to see if it's POSSIBLE to make it a feature.

Also, i would think some things you guys would WANT that kinda feed back on...

Hello, Lanzer and everyone. I'm not sure what I want to ask as of now, but to answer your own questions, I have to work into a job assessment for 4 weeks to see if I can get a better job on Independence Day. But other than that, I've been fine, wanting to see more fireworks since last night for a game in my town where they had fireworks at the beginning of the game.

Good evening. I have a question...maybe it can be answered.

With Backyard Monsters leaving Gaia, I'm curious to know what will happen to the forum that is dedicated to it? Could we possibly see the Viximo forum subsidized so that we have instead, a main forum for Resort World with appropriate subforums similar to how Soul Crash and Monster Galaxy forum tee's are arranged?

BYM forum will most likely be closed like what we did with Mahjongg Dimensions. It's possible we could add the subforums for Resort World if we deem it necessary. The reason we did it for Soul Crash/Moga/Summer Springs was because they were their very own forums.

To whom it may concern:

I was wondering when the fantasy game with the cats will be ready for us to play.

Also, why do red snuggle tables turn into green steel tables when you place them in your home?

Thank you for your time.

Love,

Just dropping by to say: Thank you for that Live Artist Stream!!!

I wasn't able to catch it live, but i was able to watch the recording...

It was so much fun to see the artists (plus those-others-who-dont-have-the-artist-designation-but-can-draw-really-good-as-well) being spontaneously creative!

I just wished they drew more of the human NPCs though. Seeing the NPC as sailorscouts was a real treat!

What's going on with zOMG glitch fixes?
How many are their left and how many have you guys fixed.
Now that zOMG is no longer being updated can you take away the nerf?

Also will we ever have something like this:

            Hey guys, just a few questions about a certain topic...

            How is it that if a user commissions art, the artist is allowed to
            scam the commissioner in almost any which way without punishment?
            *SPOILER IS RELEVANT*
            I ask, as I had ordered art from an artist and once they said they were done,
            I requested that she send me a preview with a watermark,
            but then she told me that because I didn't do as I was told (she didn't tell me to do anything),
            that she refuses to send me the art I ordered and that she just doesn't want to give it to me.
            I'm pretty sure this is a common problem, and can be considered scamming,
            as the commissioner and the artist enter a contract and if commissioners
            can be punished for saying they don't want art anymore and canceling a trade,
            then artists should be punished the same for not giving art at the end of the deal.
            I didn't finish my gold trade with said artist, as I didn't want to get scammed another way.
            I tried asking the Art Shops forum mods this question, but never got a reply.


            Oh, also thank Koleda for helping me remember that a while back
            it was mentioned that you guys were thinking about creating a trade form
            specifically to prevent this kind of issue from coming up.
            What ever happened to that idea?

This actually isn't allowed. When you agree to purchase art you enter into a contract with the user where you agreed to pay [x] for art in return. The artist is not allowed to withhold the art from you if you're fulfilling your end of the bargain. If you've already tried working it out with the artist, then file a Scam Report with the necessary information such as: Where the contract was made to commission art, when, link to posts, etc.

          ╒═════════════════════
            Okay, I'll fill in a form then. ^w^; Thank you.
            Also, the latter part where she refused to fork over an image,
            was done in PMs, so would I have to report the PMs as well
            (since I know the scam report says not to include links to PMs)?

We have different tiers of daily chance. If you log in frequently in the past week, then you get a better reward tier -- the prizes are, on average, better.

Yeah, no idea how hard it would be to turn on/off, that's all dev stuff that is Greek to me. But definitely, if a user makes a thread and we sticky it, it won't have the <3 and </3 icons.

You are also a great source for a drinking game. NOT THAT MYSELF OR GAIA ONLINE CONDONES THAT SORT OF THING.

No issues to question at this time cool
Just thought I'd ask what does the staff plan on doing for fourth of July? smile

Probably a BBQ with buddies, which may or may not include fireworks which may or may not be legal in our general area. Nothing can be confirmed smile
