- I'm in love with the event. Though I wasn't here for the founding Gaia has meant a lot to me over the years. I think I was like 14? when I joined, now I'm 18. So I used the event to reflect back on when I first join. This is the longest I've ever been faithful to a website. (I quit facebook after a year) Gaia has such active forums, a nice tight-nit community, and something for everyone is here. And the GD taught me... a lot about people since it's the most regular forum I've used since joining.
And personally I think the old layout is much cuter.
I feel lucky to have been able to remember some of the old designs & the Go-Gaia name.
I had to explain some of the old Gaia stuff to my mom, who just joined Gaia like two years ago.
She seemed a little confused about the site being so different back when Gaia started. xD
Man, I have to say: I really miss the old art & some of the features. But I don't really miss the glitchiness.
That's what made my first account experience so difficult here. I guess there will always be pros & cons.
Well this account started in 2008, I don't really remember if i made an account before this.. But yeah, I do like the banner even though its probably from sometime earlier than 2008. Id like to see more of gaia's history since its the 10th anniversary
I really do hope they bring back the other headers. This 03-04 is pretty cool, but I joined in 05 so I wouldn't mind seeing that header too. Then, like the OP said, I might feel orgasmically nostalgic. rofl
This event makes me feel like such a newbie, though i also joined in '07. I'm seeing older users climb out of the woodwork in the event forum. I do want to be hit with some nostalgic feels from my join date, but I don't mind if I'm overlooked. The header won't bring p nostalgia so much as the the old layouts, especially the dress-up page. I do like seeing all the retro outfits though, most fun I've had with my avi in a while.
But, is the header an actual old header? Or a recreation? Because I'm pretty sure the girl standing next to the hamster is wearing an '08/'09 '11 MC (legendary mage). Or was that MC based on this header?
But I must say, this event is definitely showing gaia's event style to newbs. Crazy, just crazy! emotion_dowant
>>>: This header is not the one I remember. I joined when they had
that red-eaded boy and the neko girl. Might still be the same year,
I just don't remember this ever being the header.
I liked the feel of Gaia better back then, it was like a small café with
cosy coushins, candle light and just a few regular customers * 3*
Now it's like that small cafe has been blown to pieces and there's a
huge mall here instead. Which is cool, but not at all as cosy :3
