1. Sell gold in Cash Shop through Flynn's Booty. Introduce more gold into the economy.
2. Wait for the most sought after items to get bought out of the marketplace or make their price skyrocket.
3. Reintroduce items back into the economy through "special sales" with ridiculous prices.
4. Repeat 1-3 until you piss off 75% of the users on the site and make them quit.
5. Announce that the site doesn't produce as much interest for new users like it used to. Shut it down and run away with all the money made.

3nodding ok all professor Locke is going to teach you something. See this user post? This is the REAL threat. See the steps? bogus. Why? because it never fails that it is THE USERS like these who cause panic. panic cause panic inflation, panic inflation caused us to booty grab like heck and forced gaia to have to do something about it. Hence flynns booty. Gaia is covering panic posters like this one here, so we can still buy.

Now as a side note, and yes this will be on the test tomarrow, it WAS stated that gaia is in the works of gaining funds for a sister site they are working on. Meant for older users like me and the 03/04's. same old gaia, just a brand new look for us. Now then, does this mean the original site is going under? no. in fact it's still going strong. * though obama and real life stuff can hurt it bad. like SOPA and our idiot president.* CLASS DISMISSED*

You know about as much as any regular user does. Gaia could be around for 30 more years or it could close tomorrow. The staff would never tell you if it was going to close until the last minute. And this guy has just as much of a right to say whatever he wants as you do. Except he's not doing it in a condescending RP style that lacks the flair you wanted it to have.

Though it's actually a pretty stupid assessment that Gaia's current woes should be blamed on people posting negative opinions about Gaia. The way I see it, people aren't even panicked, they're tired.

The real L0cke would be a good example to follow. He left.

    That's true. rofl
    After the backwings thing I wondered what they could possibly
    pull next. Now that it's Flynn again.. I'm back to wondering what
    on earth they could possibly do next. XD


Soon you'll be able to purchase the formula to Flynn's Chest in the Bifrost. For 1000 gold.

All you'll need to be able to craft it is 1000 crumpled newspapers, 1000 sunflowers, 1000 house flies, and 1000 ocean summer tops. emotion_awesome

Did I mention it's a level 1 formula?

That sounds about right. You might be our new mystic/prophet.
I'm not even prophesying anything.
Take it as an intelligent guess based on what's currently going on.

We need to trust them that it's OUR FAULT!


But it is mostly our fault, this thread is proof of that.

Fear mongering, doomsayers, hate mongering, spreading panic over assumptions, and these little theories is what causing a lot of the issues we're currently having now.

Now, I'm not saying Gaia isn't guilt of anything, but we (as in the users) have a pretty big hand in it.

They're not the first to pull this stunt, and I doubt they'll be the last.
As long as the greed of a few continue to fuel this mentality, there is very little we can do about it.

But, that's just human nature, I guess... sad

Why not? It seems to be really relevant to the current situation.

Because the exact same points are brought up in a new thread every single day/whenever there's a GC-related announcement, including the baseless alarmist "Gaia is shutting down! They're exploiting us one last time!" comment. Yes, they're making a lot of money out of this, which is why they try to milk it as much as possible. No, Gaia isn't shutting down, because it's financially flourishing at the moment.

Pretty much. I'm here until the ship sinks, though. I like avatar-making too much.
