User ImageI grew up before anyone heard of an internet. I can't relate. xD

But, I've seen nearly six years of Gaia. All-in-all it hasn't really changed that much. It's still a web site with forums and avatars. I'm still the same ol' KaylaGalela, just a little better dressed.
Yep, I may not remember your name on random whim, but I remember you when I see you.
I could have sworn your name was green at one point though...perhaps my photographic memory is just playing tricks on me.

Been here since 07!
I was 12 when I joined, and Gaia has really helped me grow.

I went from a shy, bullied child to a out-going bully teenager!

Thanks Gaia! emotion_dowant

More like, from a subculture anime forum, to a mainstream advertising giant. *puts on hipster glasses*

Hallowed Prophet

I joined a little before my 14th birthday in 2004. I'm 21 now and I've been here 7 years. @A@ So much time. A third of my life, essentially.

I spent a lot of time on hiatus so the growing up on gaia is a bit lost on me. I still can tell I've changed a lot compared to how to I was when I first started. If Gaia has influenced any of that, I have no idea. It has made sure that I'm still fairly into anime and manga, though. XD

Oh my god, I just checked my oldest account. I've been here since December of 2003.

I was...fifteen at the time.

I've witnessed a lot of things change, more than I can remember.

Gaia has at least indirectly influenced me...since some of my best friends are people I met on Gaia.

I also think that the forums have toughened me up, I'm not as shy and terrified of everyone as I used to be.

User ImageYeah, I'm like that too most of the time. It's easy to lose track of people. ^^

My name has never been green, though, just black (or blue for some people). whee

I was already 19 when I joined 8 years ago.... so I don't feel like I've grown up with the site... so much as the site has grown up around me. 3nodding
            I'm [oh god] 21 going on 22 now.
            I joined when I was 14.

            emotion_0A0 wut?

            c: I did watch Gaia grow more than Gaia watch me blossom from an awkward teenager to a beautiful swan butterfly adult.

Hardened Carnivore

Been on Gaia for almost 6 years, so I must've joined when I was around 13 years of age.
I feel like I've grown up with the site from teen to adult; I've seen so many changes - it's kinda surreal, but in a good way.

I used to be someone who would fruitlessly post in those "FINISH THIS QUIZ AND GET 1 MILLION GOLD" threads.
Now I can make several hundred k a day and fritter (but in a so worth it way) my gold on stuff I used to wish I could buy.

I never thought that I'd use Gaia as a (brilliant) main source of stress relief or that I'd make such awesome friends here, but I have. ; u;

Most memorable experience was probably turning pink/purple/manbearpig because I never ever thought I'd get this opportunity.
It was even more awesome because it happened just a few days before Christmas 2010. So, it was a pretty epic Christmas surprise. xD

I've went from loser to expensive loser? Idk.

I first joined in 05 on another account. That was when I was.. uh. 15.
I am not sure why I came back. I didn't really grow up on here.
When did I rejoin..? /checks

Oh. I think I was just bored during Thanksgivingish vacay in my second
year of college when I returned and made this account. LOL. I sure miss
those days.

Can't really think of a groundbreaking moment for me in my Gaia life.
Meeting certain friends may have shaped me a bit. I'm not sure.


the rats in the c e l l a r you know who you are
I joint in 2007 biggrin I love it heart heart heart
