Welcome to Gaia! ::

How to report a Bug

First thing to do when a member contact you regarding a possible bug:

1. Check an announcement!
If user experience a problem during some new project push it is probably
temporary and will be resolved after push is completed.

2. Can you reproduce the problem?

To make sure the problem is real:
Clean up the cache and cookie
Log out and log in back
Is it still reproducible?
If it is reproducible, please provide the following information:

OS: Mac? Win? WinXP?
Browser: IE6? IE7? FF? Safari? Opera?
Version: FF 2.0.5? FF 3? IE7 sp 2?
Brief description of the problem
steps to reproduce:

Example and templates are below.

3. Before you report the bug, please check other people's reports!!!!

4. Please report 1 bug in 1 post


Provide detailed and useful information when reporting!
The purpose of reporting a bug is so that later on a Developer will have enough information to reproduce the problem and resolve it. Reports made that do not provide useful information and are vague with no detail will be deleted.

Be descriptive in your title
Don't just put "Bug" in your title. For example, if something like Cinemas isn't poping up, put "Gaia Cinemas isn't popping up Bug."

Quick Format for posting bug reports:

Short description of the problem:

Operation system:

Step 1- Log onto www.gaiaonline.com

Suppose to Result:

Act result:

Here's an example of how to write a bug:

Computer Specs:
Windows Vista Home Edition
Internet Explorer 7.0.6000.16609

Slots (Upper right hand corner of game)

Playing winnings button does not work when you have over 10 winnings awarded

1) Go to www.gaiaonline.com/
2) Log in as a user: user name and password
3) Go to the web page www.gaiaonline.com/games
4) Click on Slots
5) Pick any available room
6) Click on the Join button
7) Click on the Play Token button
cool Click on the Spin button
9) Repeat steps 7-8 until you have at least 10 winnings awarded

*Current winnings will display the number 10, right below Tickets and Tokens on the left center side

10) Click on the Play Winnings button

The button will not work. The current winnings do not decrement (decrease). The spin button does not work since no winnings or tokens are used.

Any useful information goes here, such as how often this occurred.

If you notice for the above bug, it is very detailed and concise. If you were to go through the reproduction steps, you should be able to reproduce the bug, or if it is uncommon, occasionally reproduce the bug. smile

How NOT to write a bug:

Computer Specs:


I don't remember

The slots machine didn't work.

Play slots by putting in tokens.

The slots machine didn't work.

Notice how everything is vague? If you were to try to go through the steps again, you would not have a clue where to start. Try to be as detailed as you can by giving any information such as: computer information and what you were doing before, if you used any power ups, etc. This way we can narrow down the possibilities.

Timid achievement will not grant, nor will the counter advance, after exiting from the reply box in message threads.

1) Go to www.gaiaonline.com/
2) Log in as a user: user name and password
3) Go to the web page www.gaiaonline.com/achievements/f.657
4) Click on a topic
5) Click the reply button
6) Click in the message box
7) Type a few words
8.) Click the 'back' button on your browser
9) Repeat steps 3-8 until you have exited from at least 11 replies

*The achievement should be granted after steps 1-8 have been completed 11 times and each time steps 1-8 are completed, your progress, which can be accessed by hovering over the arrow beside your achievement score and clicking "Timid", is tracked by displaying _/11. The value for _ should increase each time these steps are completed, until 11/11 is reached and the achievement is granted*

The achievement does not grant and the progress stays at 0/11.

This is happening to other users as well and it has been documented, in detail, in this thread: http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/bug-report-technical-support/timid-achievement-bug/t.82479541/?_gaia_t_=3934

Step 1- Log onto www.gaiaonline.com

Step 2- click "Market place" under the shops tab.

Step 3- Click "sell an item" under market place tab.

Step 4- Click any item in inventory and wait for the new "sell item" screen to appear.

Result: The screen does not appear no matter what item you click to sell. Ergo, I cannot sell any items in my inventory. Please help me with this since I basically cant live without selling items on the Market Place. emotion_8c

Hi, I have passed this along to our devs.

3) Go to the web page http://www.gaiaonline.com/inventory2/arranger/
4) Click on Medium White Holiday Tree(item)
5) Click Sell Item
6) After a window pop up, Click Sell Item

The window stays and "Item sellback in progress..." until the flash crashes. I can still sell back other items just fine, for some reason I can't sell back the Medium White Holiday Tree.

I use Google Crome

The bug that I'm having is that I bought a lot of items from the furniture shop here on Gaia and it's not popping up in my inventory nor is it popping up in my item list or in my house to decorate the house. I spend at least 40 to 30k in items.


I'm not able to reproduce the issue.Could you please contact customer service.

I use chrome, so I am unsure if it's the browser. Every time I equip a hat on my avi with Baron the Lively Owl.. it ALWAYS glitches when he flies. It then leaves a blank square in the top left corner of the hat. I have it equipped right now so you can see. I also noticed ALL of the animated astra wings go BEHIND backgrounds. sweatdrop

Hi, I am pissed off as ******** and tired of going around in circles with no solution to the problem please fix this ASAP.

First of all,

None of these matter, I've tried switching browsers and clearing my ******** cache multiple times and what not.
OS: Mac? Win? WinXP?
Browser: IE6? IE7? FF? Safari? Opera?
Version: FF 2.0.5? FF 3? IE7 sp 2?

Secondly, your ******** Help page is useless. It tells me to go to Contact Us to file a ticket, which I did, and ended up in both a loop and nowhere at all. Fix that s**t.

Brief description of the problem: ******** Trade is ******** broken. I've tried posting in all the ******** threads and even PMing a Dev to no avail. Please stop wasting my time.
Steps to reproduce: Housing items should not show (or should be shaded or whatever if in use (in the House), akin to Equipped items being unTrade-able. Quite simply, I cannot edit the Trade or Cancel ********]

And this is the thing I see every damn time I try to Cancel or whatever (the buttons are ******** useless, F.Y.I.).
Database Error
There was an error cancelling the trade.

this is the Trade URL.

Please ******** fix this s**t.


Would say "thanks" but the amount of effort I'm doing through to get this pain in the a** fixed isn't worth it.

Chatterbox / Achievements page

Invisibility achievement will not grant after having a thread in chatterbox have 0 replies after 24 hours and beyond.

1) Go to www.gaiaonline.com/
2) Log in as a user: user name and password
3) Go to the web page www.gaiaonline.com/achievements/
4) Make a thread in chatterbox
5) Somehow make a topic so boring or stealthily that it gets no replies for 24 hours or more.

*The achievement should be granted after steps 1-5 have been completed. Even after waiting over a month nothing has happened

Suppose to result: The achievement "invisibility" being granted.

Actual Result:
The achievement does not grant regardless of time the thread has 0 replies. Over a month's time has passed and no amount of refreshing or cookie clearing does a thing. The thread itself can be seen here http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/chatterbox/i-just-don-t-know-what-to-do/t.83240705/

This particular thread was made on the GaiaOnline app for android phones. Its possible this bug occurred because of this.

Phone Model: HTC One X

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my bug incident! <3 I hope you guys can iron out the kinks soon :3

EDIT: Sorry if I posed in the wrong thread. I didn't see an area for anything beyond the 23rd so I posted here anyways. I'll check back after the holiday season is over and if need be, repost.

cat_confused I don't know that this is really a 'bug' it's more just a glitch but where it says on the manga "Gambit" when it will be updated it says "Next page in 8905 hours 33 minutes 38 seconds". That's slightly over 371 days... Somehow I doubt you are really going to wait that long to update it, so I just thought I would tell someone so it could be fixed. (Also really curious as to when the next update REALLY is! cat_xd Happy Holidays!
