I missed logging in for the 2008 item that day... does that mean I won't get the exclusive item? I bought the one I missed off the MP though. I hope it's something we have to trade the items for. cry

Wow, seriously?

A Halo or backwings? emotion_awesome emotion_facepalm

You guys are ridiculous. Such expectations, no wonder there is so much bawing all the damn time, you guys set yourself up for disappointment. Please... is me asking for a little common sense at all reasonable?

Whatever. If we get such an item, I'll eat my words, but seriously, none of the previous items have led up for anyone to believe that the final would be that grand... plus it's free (Gaia makes no money on something they could make quite a lot of money off of), and there will be SO MANY of them on the site, that any "appeal" they would have, would be gone. Because we all know that most people find appeal in things because they're rare/expensive/hard to get, not over how nice they actually are. Status symbols because everyone wants to feel like a special snowflake.

I want to say what I think it will be just so I can be like, "I told ya so" but at the same time I don't want to look like a loop if it isn't correct, hah!

I got a glitch at the beginning of the event with the first grant item saying something different to the corsage. I'm not sure if relates to the last item or I just happened out of the ordinary and has nothing to do with it. We'll just see.


If you're talking about a halo of some sort, I think it was just a glitch, but who knows.

I don't see why thinking a free halo or backwings is so unreasonable, we've gotten cheap ones in the past...

They're both big symbols here on Gaia, and it is the 10th anniversary and all

Alright I think this will go down tomorrow. Here are a few scenarios.
2) We get a BAD item and everyone decides that gaia just made us go threw 10 days of items for nothing. Get's mad for a few days, but later gets over it only to get upset over something they do later.



What does that even mean? Gaia didn't make you do anything. They had a celebration for their anniversary that you could choose to participate in. Giving away free special items for nostalgic sake. I really don't get why everyone thinks Gaia was "leading" up to something super special.

The item may be really nice or really cute, but apparently if it isn't a halo or backwings, some people are gonna lose their s**t? Wut?

THE best item in '03 was fairy wings. That was the 'oh man, oh man, you're ultra rich!' item of the day.

Tomorrow's item will be recolored fairy wings.

It has more to do with living up to expectations. So many people are thinking of some super amazing beautiful item because this is celebrating the 10th anniversary. Maybe Gaia would give a Halo or Backwings, but they wont live up to what people actually want them to, and why should it? It's a free item. I don't see Gaia releasing a high demand item at a high quality for free where everyone can get it, when they could instead sell it and make a ton of money.

Recolors of the mini wings. Like, maybe white angel mini wings, instead of that weird blue shade.

I think they've been releasing some pretty sweet items for free lately-i could see people dishing out quite a bit of dough for unending lament emotion_kirakira that item's fantastic

Break down time!

We get a bad item (Members of the site get a item that is a WE, not everyone might agree but I am saying we as a whole because a lot of us are expecting a grand item!)

Gaia just made us go threw 10 days of items for nothing. (We collected items for 10 days logging in every day to grab one item, not many users have access to the internet every day so they are working hard to log in every day to collect the item. Causing the reason they might be disappointed.)

Get's mad for a few days, but later gets over it only to get upset over something they do later.
(The user gets mad at the site for a few days, but later forgets about it and gets over it entirely. Only for the site to mess up in their eyes again causing them to get mad once again.)

Note my post was rhetorical el oh el, also was not meant to be taken serious. wink

I agree. It was a really cool/nice item, but it is kinda on the comical side. I think a more normal "tear" or "cry" animated item would be more in demand and in the CS, because it could be taken more seriously for serious avatars, so the Unending Lament being free seems a little more reasonable to me.

Again, what does that even mean? Not to be taken serious? So you just say stuff to say stuff and it was all for lulz? Your thoughts and opinions aren't serious? Huh? Why even waste your time posting then? neutral

I guess you think rearranging your words from your original post is "breaking down" what you meant to me, when all I see is exactly what I originally saw (which btw, I was only referring to your 2nd option - which is why I only quoted that one - Not the 1st or 3rd).

Anyway, what I'm saying is that no one has to do this at all, whereas you're making it seem like this is some big deal where people have some right to be upset because they took their time to come onto a website for 5 seconds every day, to click on something to get a free gift (which if they care that much, they're probably on Gaia every day anyway), and if the final item isn't amazing, people are entitled to complain about it.

I'm sure with all the computers, laptops, and cellphones/smartphones out there, that the amount of users who have daily internet access is a lot higher these days, and if someone misses one of the daily prize (as I did), they can go pick it up for super cheap in the MP.

It's just supposed to be for fun and for people to get a little free special something for participating in the event. If we get something cool, than great, but I don't see why anyone is expecting something great for the oh so difficult clicking of a button for 10 days. emotion_facepalm
