What is this, Gaia? I don't even know where to begin...

Yes, a lot of fuss was made over the titles used, but removing the titles now doesn't change the fact that they were there.

If, perhaps, you had sent this version out first, people would still be angry over the catwoman pictures, but there wouldn't be the whole 'body image' issues. However, it did, and because of such, this poll is a disgrace. It really makes me think that you don't care anymore, because we already know the labels you have attached to these images and that is the problem.

I don't understand how any one could think this was alright after the outrage the first survey caused.

Just when I thought my view of the Gaia admin can't go any lower...it goes lower than that. Apparently their motto now is how low can we go and get away with it.

I guess I am glad that they won't be using the avatar bases this site uses...
I may be in my twenties, but so far I'm not too interested in being an X-Gaian.

Are you sure?
Maybe you get to be Cyclops or Storm.

I would love to be Beast in the X Gaia world.
Pfffft. xd

I'm glad I didn't get the survey and I do agree that gaia's action in pulling it up is rather low. They should have given credit to the artists first on those catwoman images, even if it is 3rd party.As for them keeping the body type one, they shulod've gotten rid of the body type pictures just not have questions on body type...

I think people get too angry about this stupid survey! xd

Anyway, I am pretty excited about this 18+ Gaia now.
I want to see the avatars emotion_kirakira (If it is an avatar site...)

I think they simply want to have a diversity of avatar body types for the new 18+ site...but their execution of it is rather poor.

And by they, I don't mean ALL of Gaia HQ, but rather those responsible for the survey.

I wonder why they can't have their own artists working on it, though.

Not that again... rolleyes You'd really think they'd have gone a different route with that survey instead of releasing it with edited versions of the same images. Still not selling me on the new site. I kind of wonder if it wouldn't have been more effective for them to use actual doll bases for the preferred avatar question, since it would be easier to see one of those being, well... an avatar.

X-Gaian as in ex-Gaian of this site?

They re-released the same survey with those images? stressed How silly.

Looks like we have at least 3 NPCs that qualify! xd
So..I thought their excuse was that the original survey was not supposed to come out. And that it somehow got released... But yet another survey appears of the same images, but without the 'labels'. Huh. Either way, I have no desire to even touch their new site. How about they say 'chubby' to my best friend. Oh wait, she killed herself because of those labels. Screw you Gaia.

- New survey: an improvement?
    Not at all. All the did was remove the tags and still use the same crappy chart. they could have easily got an artist at Gaia to draw the body frames instead, it would have looked a lot nicer. Also, they should have credited the artists who did all the CatWoman pictures they used. I see it as highly unprofessional and something not even worth taking.

- Still accepting of Gaia's apology?
    I never accepted the apology and I still don't plan to. A completely different survey with drawn body types would have looked a lot nicer.

- What do you think an "X-Gaian" is?
    I'm not quite sure, but it looks like something I don't want to be a part of. Even if I'm over 20, it seems pointless to have this whole 18+ site. I honestly just think it will just end up being a place that's some kind of porn haven, but that's just me.
