But this is Gaia. And the internet in general. People b***h about
one thing and then when something new happens people b***h about
that too. Nobody will ever be 100% happy because that is not the
internet way. Ever. Or human way, ever. xd

I think this is as good a gold sink as any. With this happening and
the new Loyal shop set to be made soon.. I think it's all a good
thing. Will I use my gold for any of it? That's yet to be determined.

the rats in the c e l l a r you know who you are


Who said it HAD to be this way? Things CAN change, and sometimes for the better. Sometimes part of making things better requires people / things to change. So why don't we help this change along?- Simply 'accepting' things how they are now doesn't help anything, or anyone. It doesn't MOVE things along. If we want things to get better, things need to change. Especially our attitudes.

As for the Gold sink, I'm going to participate in it. And once that new shop opens, I'm more than likely going to buy from it if something appeals to me- Chances are, lots of things in there are going to appeal to me!

It has some very negative effects
namely furthering a quickly inflating sense of achievement and even superiority among a number of richer users by overusing the word loyalty
and once again showing that unflattering hesitance to do little more than the bare minimum

I don't see how this will do any of that. Just because you want to classify any rich user as someone who is an elitist or whatnot, doesn't mean we fit that class. There are so many types of loyalty, whether it be posting, playing zOMG, or keeping the economy running. smile We all play our roles and we all should be rewarded. At least they are making some effort.

Yeah, that bothered me a lot too :l But I mean....if you think about it, the verge users only got the reward of getting to spend even more gc. There is no rewards on gaia.

AND I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY DID IT AGAIN.

It'd be hilarious if the winner was crowd filler like someone said in another thread.

I mean damn.

Everything else though is pretty much alright~

.....I would die laughing.

Thing is, if we want to get anywhere we need a sink that everyone has to participate in. I would have preferred a tax increase. Not only that, but the same tax added to trades so that Exchangers can't escape it.

This one is a nice idea. It's a throwback to the original Zurg event which makes some of the old farts happy. I'm indifferent until I see what the prizes are.

I've wanted the zurg event to come back for awhile, but taxing people who use those features pretty much isnt everyone. :l Screwing over quite a lot of people isnt a gold sink. They might as well put a 100g cost to post, if you want a goldsink that messes with people. razz


Screwing them over is just a plus. x3 I honestly think that'd be the best route. 2% is nothing. And if there was a tax on posting, 100g wouldn't do much either. X3

If you average 10 posts a day that's only 1,000.

shhhh hypothetically. I suck at examples :c

Everyone should get the reward of feeling their money sucked into a black hole
I feel bad for the people who hoarded so many the first time around because they were told it was a one-time thing

Don't care about it. I'll keep my gold cause I'm not concerned with achievements. I'll buy the items off the market or exchange and fat chance at me donating for a "chance" of anything.

My guess is it's their goal to have a "flash sale" going on at all times
The past few weekends have had "weekend special" sales
The CEO's focus is to make money, it really is that based on his former work and what he's going at Gaia.

The biggest thing that I see is people saying that the sink won't work. And I'm gonna be honest:
It probably will

People will pay 10K for a grant item, and there are lots of people who will if they like it. The way for Gaia to do this correctly would be making the item sought after, really nice pixelation, and colors that can work with any outfit, or a choice of colors in the item (Like the school pride scarves). People will hoard it, and it will be in high demand so a lot of people who see the opportunity to sell for profit will spend 10K for the item to sell it for 12 or 15K. If at least 1 in 5 people do this on Gaia, there will be a massive amount of gold taken out of the system.

At least they're trying to do something. It shows that they're at least trying to help the economy a bit rather than just watching it go to hell as it has been. :/
Though chances are it wont work very well.
