I don't miss that layout, but I don't care for the current one much either. I do miss the wing logo, though. I feel like today's Gaia is trying to hard to be something it's not what with the dark purple layout and the modern white Gaia logo. confused
Keep in mind, folks, that this was a good 8-9 years ago when that specific layout was done. It was actually quite modern and sleek for its era. Now, though, it looks childish, but that may be why I loved it so much. I'm pretty sure this site isn't about being a sophisticated grown-up. Because truly, not many grownups still play with pixel dolls...
(P.S. I *am* an adult playing with pixel dolls. Judge me. I dare you. razz )
tbh it wasn't as good as many people say it was LOL. There were too many days when it wasn't working, but I do miss the focus on the plot. Also it took them awhile before they put in the friends list which was so helpful xD
Hmm... Funny what people are posting... How they miss the old community, not the old Gaia... Interesting how, now, we have neither... Makes you think, eh? cat_rolleyes
Personally, I really miss the focus on Anime the most cat_sad Seriously, the new focus on $h!tty cartoons and pathetic movies, not to mention being coupled by the hypocritically outlandish level of political stupidity one finds on the site nowadays, is downright ghastly
... But that's just my 2gs worth on this subject... cat_stare
I don't miss old Gaia and I also don't want to miss it. Old is old, it's not coming back ever. For people who want community, go out and find groups you like or make one of your own. It's really not that hard. wink
