► COMMON QUESTIONS

▶ Help? I'm having problems installing BetterGaia.
Try installing again, or if it still doesn't work, restart your browser.

▶ How do I change the ____________? I saw the setting for it above.
You should be able to change your preferences in your BetterGaia Options.

▶ I think I found a bug in BetterGaia. How do I report it?
In the official thread (You're reading it right now), post a reply with the problem (And a screen shot, if you can).

▶ Is BetterGaia safe? This isn't going to steal my password, hack my account, or even spam my friends, is it?
BetterGaia does not hack, spam, steal, and so on. We're sure that with over 3,300 daily users, BetterGaia couldn't be safer.
But if you suspect your account to have been hacked, report it immediately to Gaia, nonetheless.

▶ The Guild Forums are not the same as the Main Forums. Shouldn't it be the same?
Because the guilds are based on legacy code, they aren't as efficient to change as the main forums and would be overly complex to undertake.

▶ Isn't this against Gaia's Terms of Service?
BetterGaia does not change Gaia's site. It changes the way how your browser renders certain pages (which is your personal right), and only affects the client side (what you see) of Gaia.

Read up on the subject:
Who Owns Your Desktop? You Do!
It's My Browser, and I'll Auto-Click if I Want To

▶ How is BetterGaia version numbered?
BetterGaia is updated on a day to day basis, so as we add new features to BetterGaia, you know it will go live on the same day. Each version number is based on the year created and followed by the edition of that year.

The download doesn't work for me at all xd

If I could recommend something, I'd put the forums back the way they were, namely, bringing our purple userbars above the avatar back. Possible?

[ Poltergeist Parade ]

I gotta say, im pretty impressed by the tiny screenshots, things like simple daily chance and a decent forum view definitely appeal to me!

Thing is i'm kinda lazy.. and can't be bothered to sign up to mozilla add-ons to use it (as it's still in the experimental thread).. I might though depending on a little thing, will it work automatically or will i get a whole new bar on my internet browser? I hate wasted space and add-on that create another bar for one button bother me =3= Also would it be possible to disable changes i didn't want?

just wanted to say i love how bettergaia makes everything so much more space friendly...and it isnt so boring anymore! i love it! thank you!
Hm...
I might actually register with Firefox to download this now instead of waiting until its public.

But is this actually allowed?
It won't get anyone in trouble, will it?
I dunno, I just always felt weird with things like this.
I even remember feeling uneasy about that add-on going around a while ago to change those damn Island people in one of the older Gaia Layouts.

I have to say I like how everything looks, but would it be possible to release it as stylish/greasemonkey scripts or is there something going on that requires it to be an addon of its own?

edit: Also, put the go there link after posting back if you can, please. Otherwise, it's very nice.
But those add-ons really don't change the layout of Gaia.
I just wanted to be 100% sure.
I know things like the Tektek toolbar add buttons to the site, but they don't rearrange the layout of anything.

I did, just download it, however, and I must say that I love how the navigation bar looks.
But the shortcuts bar layers behind the map and doesn't really show at all on the computer I'm using, which is normally set in a 800x600 screen resolution. Even scrolling horizontally doesn't show it.
The name and logout link shows fine though.

Edit: Beautiful forums. They're gonna take a while to get used to. I'm used to the plain white-ness I saw every day for the past year or so.
