          This, apparently. I vaguely remember that.


I remember ittt lol. They had Rina and Leon welcome you to the site. And you could vote on avi's for the spotlight through like this little link near there post/avi something like that idk I only did it once haha.


OH YEAH! Leon would be all "HALT STATE YOUR BUSINESS!" And Rina would show up looking like some sort of weird squirrel person.

yesss xD it was really storylike. That's what I enjoyed most about it haha
Plus one thing I miss is the plot updates would occur only on events, and they would be separated by an hour, not a day or week @_@

Yeah, that's something I miss too.
When they were saved for holidays, they could have color and our excitement for the Holiday NPC's were 10 times more than they are now.

Now...we're just used to them. We don't even acknowledge them on their holidays.

I think it would be nice of the admins made a thread about stuff that used to happen, but no longer do. So they can address those issues haha. There's a lot of cool things that worked just fine, but are no longer here >.<

The homepage was similar to what it looked like when it was the Big Red Button, I think. It just lacked the Big Red Button and featured anime versions of some avatars in a field.

Of course, I log out like every 6 months and never get to see the home page.

Ever.
EVER.

I approve of the new look to the site so much now! Though I do miss the little wing dotting the i in Gaia.

This was the Gaia Homepage in 2004, completely organized. (Not.)

Woah the nostalgia of the old site. I remember when it wasn't organized and you had to use the world map to access the shops. It was kind of fun but it sure got really annoying after some time. Those images really bring back memories.

Oh Dear God in Heaven.... that yes.. that was Gaia.... That was MY Gaia. Where the Nowhere Man trolled the GCD before Trolling was Trolling and ran about sporting Devil Horns and a Cape. Ah the good old days.

    I adored the layouts from 2004 to 2006. They were so adorable with their pink logo and such. I am not a fan of all these past layouts. They are too wide and just a mess in my opinion.
