I squeeed so hard when I saw we got the original header back. whee I think flowers may have started coming out of my head, anime-girl style. xd
I would love to see the engraved jewelry feature return. It is the the ultimate in personalization, and it seems like a feature a classic shop like Agatha's would offer. 3nodding Isn't that one feature that is now possible again because of Item Normalization? I think I remember reading that once . . . a long time ago . . . sweatdrop
I would love to have the option to navigate Gaia via the world map; it used to be compulsory, and I think some newer members may not want to take the time, but having to traverse the bridge to access the Hat Shoppe, Marketplace, Gambino Outfitters, and the Bank made Gaia feel like an immersive world, and I think some members would really enjoy getting that feeling back.
Although the current notification system is quite convenient, given that we often have a bunch of different types notifications at once (particularly on login), I thoroughly enjoyed seeing just an Envelope or Trade symbol or Megaphone or eek with an exclamation point as a notification that something special was happening.
I'm assuming they haven't brought those back since I was last here. Maybe more giftboxes. I'm not sure if it just seemed like they were more common when we had fewer users or if they just don't come up as often.
That was weird to me when it happened. They changed Pink Links into giftboxes. They still call them Pink Links, but they are items with a gift box logo. You can buy them on the market.
For anyone that doesn't know or remember, Pink Links used to be a phenomenon where one thread titles in a forum glows pink. When you clicked it, you automatically got 1,000 gold (which was actually a significant amount back then).
I've only been here since '10. I don't think much has been removed since then, except for Bid blast, but that was really recent and I never used it anyway... Oh, and zomg went into maintenance mode, but that was sorta recent too sweatdrop
I liked the chat system we had where your avatar had a bubble that served as the window while you talked to another user. You would just type in it, I seem to remember? Obviously the system we have now is much better, but there was something very personal about having your avatar do the talking.
