I find it worthless. It doesn't make your post pretty. It only makes the thread title pretty to stand out in the forum thread. And 100 GC for a fancy post? No thank you. That's too much for a small thing. 10 or 5 GC would be enough, but 100? That's like the same amount for the Doom pets EI.
gasp 100GC?!I barely make a 3 Gaia Cash I mean what if you blew cash ic and moth items and you barely have a few to try this fancy post


I guess that hurt it really really bad.


I understand that Gaia needs money in order to support a thread. But to pay 100 GC just for a fancy title is not worth it. After all, what makes a thread worth it is what the topic of the thread is about.

But yes, that's too much for a small feature. As I said, 5 or 10 GC is okay for the feature. But 100 is too much to ask.

I'd rather spend 10k gold on it than the 100 GC I just did for a topic in Bug Report. :X

I will never use it, unless it has a cheaper price in GCash. Or better yet, I wish it would cost a few gold to make a nice, fancy post! emotion_donotwant

Big spender are we able to throw away 10k to every thign but when it come to 100 GC that a big nope.


Must be it your money you give to gaia to give you coded number for the CG so I see why since gold just bits and codes nothing more or less!

^ That's what happens when you tell someone from the CB that the feature is just a bunch of waste of money. XD

My opinion is as followed.
1. Could have been an amazing gold sink. If they make it available for gold, it should be kind of expensive though, so not just anyone can buy it. Otherwise it will lose it's appeal/specialness.
2. Quite expensive for a one time use gcash wise. I say at least reduce it by half.

HAHAHAHAHA!

I am NEVER going to use it. emotion_donotwant

"Never say never" - justin bieber

i might try it out once just to annoy people razz

first i'll have to hand out chill pills though


Ok, I will not use it as it is.

It has the detriment of costing way too damn much and can't be used on already created thread.

The ball has been dropped, yo.


At first I was like

but now i don't care. took me about 1 minute. now i'm just lol'ing at how people are responding to it xd

one of the options is only 50gc but it has the ugliest banner crying 50 cents isn't bad for a colorful thread...although tbh i'm betting people will take it as a sign of attention whoring

thinking about it i'd pay to have a way of customizing/decorating the interior of a thread, but the exterior - not so much. maybe just give it a different icon but not a full on banner.

What's terrible is that I would totally use it if it were... say, 50GC. Because at the end of a month I always have about 50GC to spare and nothing to spend it on.
If I made threads and etc that would be right up my alley.
100GC, however, is really too much.

I meant I never made a topic thread in 2 years, where I'm the OP... I'm fine posting in others' threads, but as for adding some shinies won't change my mind
