Welcome to Gaia! ::

Hi I come from many other online games from beta to live. Most mmo's I play have an online fee monthly. Now I understand gaia to still be in alpha acording to the front page.

Now I was wondering if this goes "Live" will there be a fee? Personally I think a fee per month with stop the excesive spam, but thats just me anyways I was just wondering

Nite all smile
Gaia will ALWAYS be free. :3 The admins intend to keep it that way, no matter what.

Hopefully it will never get to the point where they have no choice but to make it a pay site... but that happening doesn't seem likely to me.

If is right. This thing will be alpha forever 3nodding
I know they make probally alot on donations and ad's but the bandwith required to run this must be pretty high.
The whole point of Gaia is for it to be a free, interactive site. If they made Gaia a paysite, it would drain it of its lifeblood, the random plethora users.

Gaia wouldn't go under if it were a paysite, it merely wouldn't be the same sort of place. At all.

well its been in alpha for 2 years :/
Gaia is fun, but not worth paying for personally =/ If it did do that, I'd spit on it and leave.

Maybe it will >.> Is this live thing after beta or something..?

I know. The mere thought of the cash required to keep this site up and running makes me want to cry. ): But things will be okay. They get by with ads and donations.

They get a whole hell of a lot more than that. +_+
with about 10000 daily active users, guessng about half of them donating to gaia every month, on an average of 3 donation letters per user (not counting those users who spend hundreds of dollars) id say that gaia gets more than enough to run the site. thats like 35000 dollars.

guessing 5000 users donate about 7 dollars making 35000. thats a lot. x_x <3

then think about those users that spend like 500 dollars to get like 100+ donation letters. woah.
