Oh my gosh! I remember the banner, the creator and everything! I also remember a banner of characters looking at a bulletin board.

Man that was back in 05. Where fishing was the thing, and when Towns came out everyone has a feast blaugh

I joined in 09, and I remember the button. We still had the map in the top right corner, and it showed how many users were online. That's about all I can remember x_x;;

When I joined Gaia, it was a very plain front page with a small animated gif of a rock puppy shaking its head. When I joined, Leon and Rena walked me through the setup. Then I browsed Ian's shop and Sasha's shop. I was sure that I would never save enough for even one of the pretty kimonos in Sasha's shop. xp Now I own all of them.

There were also constant database errors. But the mods/admins had an amazing sense of humor. The databases were named, so you'd get messages like "There has been an error with the braaaaaains database" "error with the sushi database".

People often refer to those days as "the good old days", and while there is something nostalgic about that time and how small the community was back then, all the improvements they've made are amazing. Now we have so many more items that come in on a regular basis. We have so many more ways to interact, and even more games to play. 3nodding Nope, these aren't "the good old days" anymore, they're the exciting new chapter for Gaia.

I know its later than most people when they joined. I was 13 at the time and I saw my sister on this site a lot and so I snuck on the computer when she was showering and joined. xP
