"Those who are selfless and giving are often mistaken for angels -- the halo is the true mark of this angelic race."

This is the description for the famous Angelic Halo.

- Do you really equate people who own Angelic Halo's as "generous" and "selfless"?
- Do you think Gaia Interactive still believes this?
- Lol irony?
- Do you think that this description, once used for donators who donated to Gaia at their creation, should be changed?
- Other thoughts?

I think the item is hugely overrated for a one pose golden donut.
I don't like how it looks, so I couldn't care less about it, really.

And it's just pixels.
If it has sentimental value for you, it shouldn't lose that just because more people can suddenly get it.

Considering this was the very first DONATION ITEM, I'm sure it was meant as a thank you! Persons were not promised an item, they simply donated because they were asked to. The original halos were a sign of generosity.

That's were the description comes from.

First of all, OP-- your avi is beautiful. I'm not a huge fan of monochrome but you are rocking it.

Second, that's an interesting thought. The Angelic Halo doesn't inspire much in me, and I would agree with many that it is simply overrated. I don't know anyone personally that owns one, though I've seen some users with it, and they were usually very kind and generous. No idea if they're exceptions to the rule or what.

- Do you really equate people who own Angelic Halo's as "generous" and "selfless"?

I believe it CAN be, if the owner allows themselves to be.

- Do you think Gaia Interactive still believes this?

I couldn't speak for the in office guys.

- Lol irony?

There is a bit of an ironic flavor to it now, I get that.

- Do you think that this description, once used for donators who donated to Gaia at their creation, should be changed?

Generally, changing flavor text doesn't happen, unless there is Typos.

- Other thoughts?

I think if you want the halo to mean more like it originally did, then you have to be that kind of person before you have it and after.

Understand when the Halo came out, Gaia needed the money so when users donated they were given the Halo for being so generous so It makes sense

But now that people hoard it for greed, it has sadly loss all meaning

Any user who must say, I am selfless and generous to have earned this, is not truly so.
