It was simply the first avatar site I ever signed up for. I'm pretty loyal, not to mention lazy...if I switched to a new site I'd have to work for all the shiny items again lol
And I stay because I know some people here.
I'm not sure why I'm still here, actually. Maybe nostalgia and that I don't want to let go. Or maybe it's become I come here to chill and relax for a little while and take my mind off of RL by dressing my avatar, buying/selling stuff, playing HoC.
I am here and support the site with feedback, my real money,
and web traffic and my time because it is my addiction. Even
if nobody talked to me, I'd still have fun lurking and chatting on
the forums, waiting for new items to be released and playing
around with my avatar.
That's seriously why I support it. It's for my own entertainment
and I like things that entertain me and take up my time.
The over nine years I've spent as a Gaian, The money I've put into Gaia, the friends I've made, my love of the NPCs and their stories, my excitement for every site event, ect.
Gaia is like my internet home. There is something very comforting and natural about logging-in. I have fun here even if I'm just doing something simple, like playing around with my avatar. I also like being able to help support the site by bringing web traffic (I turn off ad block whenever I'm on.) and buying GC. I'd love to see Gaia be able to continue on for another decade.
... Hey, it seems like the user above me supports Gaia for the same reasons I do. emotion_brofist
- It's fun and even when it's not it kills time.
- I love pixels and I love art! On Gaia I can buy both!
- If I didn't impulsively buy pixel items I'd probably go to the mall and impulsively buy real clothes and that's no good.
- It's a lovely little outlet and even if I can't summarize it very well, I really derive a lot of enjoyment from my time here. ♥
i choose Gaia over other avatar sites because i generally like the bases here more and i like most of the items here more than on other sites.
and i like posting in the forums. sure, some avatar sites may have better, more close-knit forums, but if i don't like the avatars from the other sites that much, i might not post in their forums.. sweatdrop
The avatars. I've joined just about every avatar site I've heard about and none of their avatars compare in my opinion. I could say friends, but I hardly ever talk to the people on my friend list. I have social anxiety issues. gonk
