I have been on Gaia for years and years(mainly as a lurker) and I have never received a gift from someone.
Today I just commented on how generous people have been and I got a gift for the first timesurprised. Have people gotten nicer now?
I just came back from a hiatus of about a year and I, like you, have also never gotten a gift before but it does not take a genius to see that this community is VERY generous. You're all amazing! So many giveaways etc. Stay amazing. heartheart
I buy RIGs/item generators pretty regularly... and lately I've enjoyed giving the extra items away to random people in the GCD. Some of them I'll sell on the MP, but for the most part, if I see somebody lamenting about how they'll never own it because of the inflation and I have a spare... I'll just give it to them. 3nodding
So yeah. Maybe this hyper inflation is making some of us more generous.
»»» I did a fair bit of gifting last night. I sunk 100mil into Loyal's Easter Grab bags and was giving away duplicates of the wing recolors since I ended up with multiples. Sure I could have sold them but eh, the bags only cost 1 million (and that's cheap now) so I didn't feel the need to sell them.
