Its frozen to prevent bots mules ect or to see if youll play beyond 3 days

i just think its silly ~


Actually, it's not.

Because you're new, you wouldn't understand the sheer amount of botting that went on prior to these updates.

Botting ruined the fact that old users could be trusted. And you're paying for it.

That's why we can't have nice things.

it's mostly there to prevent people from making mule/bot accounts to dump item/gold onto or exploit the system. So certain things are restricted until your account is 3 days old. Don't worry there's plenty to do until then. I mean we are having a huge party right now, its Gaia's 10th birthday. biggrin

i wanna go to a party :O where?!


Under Forum tabs, go to the For the Love of Gaia under Hot Topics!There are a lot of activities going on now! =)And, welcome to Gaia Online and hope that you will have fun here! =)

Its only 3 days. Go explore the forums
I know how you feel, I'm not even new really, my original account has been inactive for such a long time it's been locked, hopefully I'll get it back... I had a perma avi and I'm like itching because this isn't my account xp but yeah I've just been messing around in the forums for the last couple of days, my sister was lovely enough to donate to me some items so I don't feel ugly xd but I want my stuff back and my name... but that could take 2 weeks IF I did everything right confused

I was going to open a build a cupcake shop for while I wait so I could get a little gold but no trading pass XD I got one yesterday though whee

now I have to wait for my original account.... and then I will open up a large art shop

While you are waiting and exploring, if you go to MyGaia page and click on the trophy icon, you can see a list of achievements you might be able to get. It's an activity to help you pass the time and to help you explore a bit. 3 days will fly right by you before you realize just how much fun you were having.

Edit: seems you already know about those.

Well anyway, this is day two for you. Day after tomorrow, you will be free!
Yes I agree with you, Gaia is not new-user friendly, maybe that's one of it's biggest issues, and the reason why it has less and less users.

Although the system was implemented in a time where bots and mule exploitation reigned free, this is not the case anymore and I personally think this measure hurts Gaia more than helps it.

If I were new, came here and found I can't do many things for 3 days, I would leave to never be back of that I'm sure.

The also lock your account if you are absent for a few months which kinda sucks too.

Streaker

It's to prevent hacking,scamming, trolling and other bad things sometimes do. It's an initiative process that we ALL went through (besides the people who joined in 2003 maybe)

But.. The things you can't do are the boring things. Waiting 3 days to try those is not that much.

I recommend going to tektek.org to find out what AMAZING items are out there! emotion_dowant
