I was 13 or 14 when I joined back in '07.
I guess what has changed the most is the cash shop. I remember when it was just MC's for cash; but I really don't remember when it had became cash orientated. Of course, the layout change is huge too. Shortly after I had joined, and was familiar with the site, it had changed. I was like, "Now I have to re-memorize everything!!!!"

...mmm 16 was when I joined cos my friends kept on pestering me about it.

Then the Zurg Xmas event started and I was like HOLY COW THIS IS ******** AWESOME. *joins in on translation stuff*

Shoot, I remember arguing what kind of windgings font was being used, ancient greek letters, all that crazy stuff. emotion_kirakira

I still enjoy the site, just cos I'm older doesn't mean I can't enjoy myself. My biggest factor is time, because nursing school>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Gaia

I originally joined in '04, when I was 14. Hot damn, has things changed. No more rollbacks or sushi errors. But we did finally get zOMG, and now even the fabled backwings. Hell, I remember when it was a big deal that we finally got a gun item.

I originally joined on 03 in my other accounts. Made this one as a return in 07 for the heck of it. I don't like to think about my own age. .-. Time fly by fast.

If only gold was this easy to make back in the old days...

I feel like an old fart because I still, to this day, miss being able to get 10g for every single poll vote. There used to be entire guilds dedicated to pollwhoring. It was a beautiful time for a newbie short on gold...

I was 14 when I joined in early '05. I'm 22 now.

Im older! blaugh

I was 14 when I first joined back in 2008. Now I'm 18. While I haven't been on Gaia as long as some people, four years is still a substantial chunk of my life.
