All I really remember of the beginning of go-gaia was that it was incredibly slow, you often got sushi errors, everyone wore peasant clothes and having a few hundred gold was a REALLY BIG DEAL.

I remember posting so much for just to have 10k because that was a lot.

But mostly the rp essence of it all. gaia wasn't just a name, but an rp. I miss that deeply. I guess why I keep rp'ing Gaia in my art shop.

Well, it's not the oldest thing ever, but I remember when the marketplace changed over to the new format.
And blonde Ian, and no homes, no towns. When ruby sold hats... >_>

When you never change your hairstyle because it costs too much. I haven't changed my hair in years, even though I can afford it.

I remember the old profiles that just had a big picture of your avatar and some general info right next to it. Nothing fancy.
Wow. I can't believe I'm almost 5 years old in Gaia. O_O ('07er here)

Do theaters still exist?
I mean like if you're gonna watch a promotion, you actually go to a movie house...
with seats and all... and you can throw popcorn on the screen...?
Haha. It's been ages since I went to one... I don't know if it's still there. D:

I remember watching that LouiexMoira animation. O_o ohgodwhy

Haha. And I remember those five dollar footlong mashups.
And the ones when Lex and Liam were licking a pole and Louie joined in...
they would put that mashup everywhere. hahaha XD
That is still my favorite mini comic... ever.

Those were when there were only few NPCs.
After I went on hiatus, I don't know who the NPCs are anymore.

And the layout of the forums and shops were different back then.
...And it was so much harder to earn money. D:

Oh gosh. It was a big deal for me to get out of that orange ponytail.

I joined in '04, and I remember being thinking like, "********, I'm such a newb, there are all these oldbies everywhere."

Now I'm an oldbie. Too crazy.

Hahaha holy s**t. I NEVER ******** change my hair, just out of habit of me thinking it's too expensive. I mean, I have a s**t ton of gold, but I just forget that changing your hair these days is way cheaper than changing your hair in '04. xD

Anyone remember those Kingdom of Knuffel breedable pet siggies that every newbie seemed to have in the forums? I remember I wanted to buy one, but 3k was really expensive for me D:

Ohgod. Now, I can earn that much money with a game of booty grab. D:

When i see someone wearing a ducky hat and think "Oh man, that person must be loaded!" then remember it isn't 2003, and that isn't one of the most expensive items on gaia anymore XD;;

you know you're an oldbie when you remember having to wander through maps to get to shops, and when fishing was the ONLY game to play.
