It's pretty crazy. I joined mid-'05 so while I'm aware this is how the site used to look, I never personally got to experience it.

The header looks like it's supposed to be for a cutesy MMO, imo. xD

I am loving the banner and logo. It's not the exact banner I remember from '04 (Gaia, I can has those too?) but maybe those will roll out tomorrow if they update them every day.

I reeeeeally wish they'd keep the old logo. Or give us an option to keep it. Even after all these years I still love it so much. I love all these bright, cute colours and images. It's what got me into Gaia when I was just a young, little thing. heart

I'm more familiar with the design just after this one, but all the same I feel like it's an awesome chance to see what it was like! Like a real museum retrospective ^o^

I really like it, but I joined back in '04. I have to say, I miss the cheerful pink logo! It's nice for me because I'd honestly forgotten what it used to look like around here. Man, it's so much easier to navigate now.

I like the old header, it's very classic and bright. I'm hoping we get some cool stuff each day. That corsage is a really good start!

I like the old pink logo but I always wonder if the artist forgot to add the pink dot above the tellow shade of the "i" or if that is intentional.

Um, yeah.

*reads thread title*
Hm. I'll say. *noms on Valentine's Day chocolates*

Although it's cute, I prefer the version I remember from when I first joined the site (in 2006). It looks more anime-styled than chibi and sums up the avatar community much more accurately. cat_3nodding

Although I didn't join till 2008, I am curious to see what the site looked like back when it first started. You could say I consider the banner to be part of a Gaia history lesson~

While I find the old banner/layout fascinating to see... I'm glad I wasn't around then (it's far to bright for me)

I do hope they do a through the years thing, and show us all the past layouts.

(I also can't wait to see what other items we will get.... more remakes of "classic" rare items?)
I like the new change!
While this account says I just joined recently,
(which I did on this one)
I've been on gaia since December of '08.
Not quite as long as you, but
still not a "noob" entirely.

But I do think they should go through all the years
I think it'll be way better for the anniversary.
Trip back in time throughout gaias' history.
Kind of..neat?
I guess.
I don't know how to explain it..

The nostalgia header is actually making me sad because I loved Gaia so much more back then than I do now... sushi errors and all >.>

Even though I started in 06, I still really enjoy the old front page being up. I knew exactly what it was last night right when they changed it and I'll admit to getting pretty stoked about it :]
It just shows how far along our little community has come and how much it's grown. I actually really really hope they go threw each year. I think it'll make everyone feel special.

I also thought it was odd. I did notice the header and was happy and somewhat excited about it, but it was only because I knew the people from '03/4 would be happy. I really have no feelings about the header personally. I joined in 2008, so I feel really new. I do kinda hope they go through all the years, that would be really cool and make a lot of sense, because then the newer members could feel nostalgic as well.

Though the old header and mock-up of go-gaia doesn't really bring me back any memories, it's still nice to be able to experience what Gaia used to be like. It's like a trip to the past, which I like because I've always wondered what it was like.

EDIT: Wow I used the word "like" way too many times in that last sentence. gonk
