Ragnarok Online II Partnership
We've partnered with Ragnarok Online II to provide some shiny bonuses for you in-game and a special item grant on Gaia once you reach level 15. You MUST register for an account through the URL provided in the announcement in order to receive the exclusive Gaia item grant. The item grant will be available through an exclusive promo code sent to your email. Just take that pin code and enter it on the Pin Redemption page.
UPDATE: Just for clarification once you reach level 15 you will be added to a list of users who reached level 15 during that week. Once a week a email will go out to those users who have reached level 15 in the previous week with the code to redeem your gold and bonus items for Gaia. Once per user per account. More Info Here!
- Fixed bug with Marketplace not showing average price or giving warning when selling high priced items (In patch rotation, will be out soon)
- Updated the page layout for partner offers
Site Centering Coming Soon!
Just wanted to let you know that, coming soon, we'll be making Gaia Online a centered site!
We thank everyone for the feedback they provided in Sisky's thread poll on this topic. While we understand that some people might not like this idea, centering the site opens up more opportunities with partners and events for us to take advantage of. According to the poll numbers, over half of you either want a centered site or are neutral about the issue. Some of the negativity came from concerns that centering forums and guilds would break post styles, so we are happy to tell you this update won't impact those areas at this time, only the main site design. In the future, these areas may also be centered, but until some of those concerns can be better addressed they will remain as they are.
Pre-roll Ads Coming to Flash Spaces on Gaia
We wanted to give you a heads up about a change coming shortly to Gaia's Flash spaces.
In the near future, we'll be adding pre-roll advertising videos to to the beginning almost all Gaia Flash spaces and games. What this means is that before a Gaia Flash game or Flash space launches, you'll be asked to watch a short video advertisement. zOMG! should not be affected by these changes.
Not to worry, we've partnered with a great company to help provide ads we believe will be relevant to most Gaians, and which will have appropriate content for our community. And hey, not only does watching the ads help Gaia Online earn a bit of profit to keep our beloved site running smoothly, but you might also learn about some fabulous new products through the ads! As always, if you should run across an inappropriate ad, you can report it by emailing us at email@example.com and let us know! If you want more info on how to report bad ads, please check out the thread here!
Anyway, thanks for reading. We know that some Gaians are sensitive about advertisements online and we didn't want to surprise you with this change without giving you a heads up.
Removing HoC & MoGa
We want to thank everyone for their patience and time that have been put into these games. Unfortunately, we have made the decision to retire Heralds of Chaos and Monster Galaxy from the Gaia Online site. This was not an easy decision, and we know that many of you may be upset by this. We wanted to take a moment to thank all of the players who have supported these products and hope you all have had as much fun playing these unique and wonderful games on Gaia as we had making them for you all.
Note: This only applies to the Gaia Online versions of these games. The versions of Heralds of Chaos and Monster galaxy on Facebook will remain available for anyone to play.
Adding 3 new mini-games
We'll be adding three games to our mini-game lineup in the near future. These games will be designed for short and fast play and will use a brand new tournament-style system that we've been working on. Check out a sneak peek of these games below!
Mini-event next week
It's time to head back to school so that means end of Summer shenanigans. Tune in next week for a fun little break from any start of school stresses.
This is still in QA testing to hammer out a few more bugs and run it through some heavy stress tests (Yep, we've thought of your 20,000+ item inventories).
We have begun production! We'll have an old school forum battle with a modern revamp, a new Flash game that many of you should recognize, Trick or Treating, and of course, a continuation of the story with Easter Bunny seeking his revenge against Jack. Who knows, you might even find a few surprises along the way.
We're exploring the possibilities of a wedding system here on Gaia and would like your feedback! Sound off in the thread here. To address a few of the common questions: Yes there would be a divorce feature, Yes same-sex marriages would be allowed, Yes you'd be able to display the relationship in the forums, Yes we'd include a wedding-themed Flash space, No you couldn't share accounts/items, and Not Sure on different relationship types, multiple marriages, or age restrictions.
School is back in session so it's time to fight to earn a spot in your favorite club. Join in and work alongside your club's captain in the forums to convert as many others to your club as you can. The club with the most members by the end of the event will receive a special reward. You must act fast though, the event will end and the victorious team will be crowned this Wednesday at 12:00pm PST. I hope to see you in my club!
Also, make sure you prepare yourself for a new year at Valefor by picking up an Advance Chance item today!
Hope you all had a good weekend! Since it is Monday, it is AtA time. Please feel free to join us and ask your questions and give feedback. As always, we'll try to answer as many questions as we can in the hour!
Wow, I want to thank you all so very much for helping us out by taking our User Screen Resolution Survey. We already have over 7700 responses which is fantastic (and far more responses than we could have anticipated) so well done gang!
Anyway, since we already have a huge sample of responses, we'll be closing the survey tomorrow at 12 pm PT. If you still want to take the survey and voice your opinion before the survey closes, you are certainly welcome to do so! The survey can be found here: Gaia's User Screen Resolution Survey
Please note: As mentioned before, this survey will be hosted on our Survey Monkey account, but it will NOT ask you for account information or password! Any survey that asks for your account password is not from us, and is an attempt by weaselly people to phish your account information. Never share your password!
Thanks again for contributing your time and taking the survey biggrin
Well, it seems that Moira felt she was not getting enough attention and has decided everyone should have to stare into her eyes 25 times forever. Needless to say, this is a bug and the wrong item was being granted. We've changed the item being granted, removed all entries of the incorrect item from the Marketplace (If you had it listed, all of your listings will have been cancelled, sorry!), soulbound the item to prevent it from being spread, and have begun removing those items and granting the correct one to everyone who currently has it. Please sit tight and stay patient while we clean this up. I'll update as soon as we're finished!
We're aware of some issues that are occurring when trying to file a ticket. We are working with our help desk provider to get this resolved as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience and apologies for the inconvenience.
