You know you're an oldby when you come to the MP thinking your 3k will get you a Pale Marionette

I don't understand this one.


I interpreted it as something like this:

Quote:
(2003) Wow, I finally saved up 3k! *leaves Gaia for some reason or another*
(2010) *comes back* Wow, look at all these cool new items! This one's pretty neat...huh, notoriously rare and expensive? Pssh, with that 3k I saved seven years ago, I'm on top of the game! biggrin


...it's severely lacking in logic, but then again, so are most Gaians! *rimshot* it's the only way I could think of to make sense out of that one. xp

Lol, that's how I thought of it as well. I didn't see how that accounted for one to be an olbie, which is why I asked.
You can remember when things were cheap, but if you think you can come back in 2011 thinking candy bars are still 10 cents, that just makes you senile lol

I joined back in 2003 on my main (which I just recently got back after it was hacked ages ago), and you know you're an oldbie when:

1. Popular members were called Prommies and they were like celebs around Gaia...and EVERYONE knew them.

2. you had pantie / boxer auctions in the exchange to raise money for your quest, and everyone had fun with it. Nowadays you cant do an auction like that with out people calling you a perv or flaming you to "go beg in the charity forum noob."
i remember using the maps to get to the shops

and using the ART ARENA ~lol~

I know right, XD My friend Troggard had a boxer auction once and since he was a prommie at the time (he left though and hasnt come back : ( ) a lot of girls went nuts over them. XD it was the funniest thing ever to watch.

How about... When you still harbor the tiny, pale hope that site events will be awesome competitions where you can choose a team and actually contribute toward their victory.

Competitive events are kinda dead now ;o; pity since they were my favorite part.
      You're an oldie when you remember
      that the admin didn't always have a "body".

      And the annoying kitty girl in the header.
      Who totally had the hots for that red-haired kid.

LOL. These auctions could get pretty serious though. I've seen several in the millions xD
