For me it has to be tipping and thread subscriptions in guilds. I don't care if they have to hack them into existence, which one of the programmers said they might have to resort to in an AtA session after we got guild quick replies, it would be nice to have them around in guilds. Aesthetics of the guilds can go take a walk it's the features like that the average user wants.

I agree!

I just miss the old days when people actually valued their Items, no one really takes pride in them anymore because they know better designed ones are on its way.
I just think they should lay off the RIG's, but they can't because they need to keep Gaia afloat with moolah~

You'd think by now there would be some "Gaia Wedding" feature that gave female avatar pregnant bellies and tiny Gaian Babies to hold considering the amount of complaining that comes up, every now and then.


I'm thrilled that we haven't gotten that. Creepy, imo.

As much as I'd love a better inventory arranger, I've been here before we even had the bad one so I don't mind it so much. I would think that they would have better tagging on the items by now. Some of them are just awful.
Like ones that ONLY have their item name tagged.

I'm wishing for the option to change our headers from what we have now to any of the RIG ones. They're incredibly pretty and it's a shame after it being used once and then is left to go to waste...


I'd love to see a feature like this too. We have such pretty headers with the RIGs and Events, it's a shame that we only see them for a short time.

I'd also like the back-wings to be just a biiit easier to get. Right now they are just ridiculous.

T y l e n o l.
Everytime Gaia categorizes a new item as a "game" item (as many new rig items are categorized)

THEY DO NOT SHOW UP IN INVENTORY SEARCH.

It is legitimately ridiculous.
This drives me insane x ox they need to fix the glitch that stops them from labeling all items as... items, as default XD; they also need a better tagging system, each pose name should be a tag, colors and layer should be included too...

I'd also like it if we could change the name of the spoiler tag like we do with quotes, that would be fun C:

Agreed on the backwings. I've kind of been eyeing the archangel ones and it is quite ridiculous about how they stand now.

I agree with both suggestions/ideas.
I'm a little shocked the whole backwings ordeal hasn't been officially settled yet.
I never thought I'd see a site hold off on giving such a basic type of item.
Similar sites offer wings right off the bat & I don't believe they're considered rare or expensive.
I understand that "air of mystery" keeps people coming back for more sometimes...
But there's a limit to that for me. Silliness.

I'm excited to see the day when we have the power to switch the header to previous RIG ones.
I'd use that feature all the time.

How about that "I'm smacking you across the Internet " feature?

I need one of those.
What about a "Smack you with a Fish" feature? I'd like to smack a few people with fish for the ultimate humiliation.

I'm 100% down for a fish smacking feature on Gaia.


TROUT SLAPPINGS.

I can get behind this.
YOU'VE BEEN MACKEREL'D!

Imagine if we could do it with a variety of fish purchased from Logan's shop!

Feeling like a weak little slap? Guppy slap!

In the need to get your point across? SWORDFISH SLAP!

Want a really powerful and humorous slap? SHARK SLAP!

An interesting idea. I'd like to overhaul all of the account settings content so that could be part of that. I don't know if it would flow well in having all three changed by the same button but who knows.

This probably won't be happening. Items are what keep us all working here making new stuff, without them I'd have to say that none of these things were possible.

Not likely to happen because the layering system is a beast and making it customizable would be difficult.

Probably won't happen since working on items is an actual job, not a freelance thing. If anyone worked on an item, we have to pay them, and that's why we have artists dedicated to items.

Probably not feasible to do them on a monthly basis since it still takes a good chunk of our artists' time to go through the contest and select winners, create the items, etc etc.

1: That makes me happy to hear, the thought of "pregnant avis" is kinda disturbing imo. Especially when the joining age is 13.

2: Since zOMG! still does have a lot of active players, perhaps it could be feesable in the future to adjust the Coliseum to support pvp? More love towards non-FB games is always welcome.

Wanted to ask about a couple of those answers, because it did raise a few more questions. Plus a suggestion or two...

This year could mean any time this year. An 11 month window seems...a little too vague. Especially for a system that has been 'broken' for as long as it has. (Read, yes, it is POSSIBLE to play. However, in it's current state, it's not PROBABLE for most Gaians, and there in lies the difference. When crafting an item is going to range in the half a billion gold bracket, and you wants folks to craft SIX of them....it's broken.)

I know Narumi was talking about wanting it started to be pushed in December...is it possible to see things in two months...ish?

One idea would be to maybe working it in like titles. Under titles, it could say "Linked to [Insert Gaia Username Here]" and it has to be approved by both parties Have it cost 5k and you each get a binding ring that locks to the account (Maybe gives off a little glow or whatever, like the angelic pendant does.)

Unbinding could cost 500k. The ring becomes a 'junk' ring, and has no visible poses.

As for babies...well, we HAVE holdable babies on the site already. Gotta love those troll EIs that Drinky made up. As for pregnancy tummies...well, I think it COULD be possible. But only if it equipped like a top/shirt. A dozen preggers mommy shirts in basic styles would make folks happy.

And if you'd be worried about site image, might I remind the other staff that you have items that already suggest far worse. (plus, I am pretty certain there are some pregnant Gaians of many ages.

Interesting ideas. Would we need to contract out Maury/Jerry Springer to handle any disputes that arose from that?

It's not that the items get entered wrong. The system switches them at will and will even change existing items without the artists actually doing anything with it. There's just underlying issues with the item tagging/type system itself because it's old. The fix for it is basically (hopefully) bringing the whole thing up to current standards.

Well, we already have those issues on the site. (you know this, man. One trip through the CB would confirm it.-lol-) I suggested the way higher cost for unbinding as both a mid level gold sink as well as a deterrent for splitting. All in all, a low end code with a high end gold yield.

Well, it worked for the Wild Things/Wild Armor. A gold shop option for mid level price ranges might be nice is all I'm saying.

I suppose that's to be expected from a ten year old site. sweatdrop Are you talking about a whole new work up on the MP system or just how it is cataloged?
