What bothers me most isn't that Gaia has ads to earn revenue, it's that Gaia seems to have an unquenchable greed for money, from it's users, it's advertisers, everyone. But Gaia REFUSES to allow ANYONE, especially it's loyal user base, to MAKE the money it so wants for itself, with anything to do with the site.

Maybe if Gaia let it's users MAKE money from the site, those users would pour that money back into the site.

Just a thought.

Not a bad idea, but they could also LISTEN to their userbase and quit re-releasing the garbage known as gold generators if they want more people to support the site. They need to clean up their buniness practices, or let us users make money off the site just like the third parties do.

I rarely post on anything, but just seeing the topic of this forum made me lose it. Whitelist your ads? I have adblock for a reason, I don't want to see your crappy adds and let viruses into my computer. Your entire site has already been tailor made to suck money from us or just render itself virtually useless to us. I come back and gold generators have put gold prices in the billions, ZOMG! is gone and all reasonable ways to make gold without shelling out to you are pretty much worth nothing now. I will not shed one single tear if you lose millions on people not watching your ads. You're already absurdly well off, not to mention greedy as all hell. I truly hope the days when you're scrambling to save your asses comes soon...

Gaia doesn't listen to what it's users say, or at least if it does, it only seems to listen to its most blindly devoted fans about things like new items and what other colors an item should be offered in.

As evidenced by the many replies in this thread, and the many issues that were raised about gold generators and the runaway inflation, Gaia doesn't listen to it's critics. It is so deaf to even the most helpful and well intentioned constructive criticism that it doesn't even reply when such serious issues are raised. It just ignores them and hopes the issues go away and nobody important notices.

As far as I have seen, Gaia consists of corrupt individuals who abuse the platform their customers have paid for, and they will just continue to do so as long as the money keeps flowing.

Things being what they are, Gaia is unlikely to change and will just exist until the majority of users get mad enough to either stop giving money, or leave the site entirely.

We all know Gaia is being run by monkeys at the moment. emotion_awesome The fact they ignore the userbase never fails to piss me off. The fact that the staff openly mocks site feedback is just completely out of line. These crooks wonder why they're losing funds. rolleyes emotion_donotwant

The "staff" that trolls users on the forums is often just children and immature adults who have been given elevated status and simply abuse it. That moderators abuse their power and there is nothing to be done about it, as other mods simply turn a blind eye lest they lose their position for not supporting the group mentality, is just a symptom of the larger problem.

There is simply no accountability on the site, whether it's outright abuse by moderators, or by the operators.

The only thing users can really do is not buy anything and not pay any money, and hope that forces Gaia to change things if it wants to continue to exist, since Gaia is sure to quash any explicit movements for change before they gain traction.

Either that or maybe a talented group of people will make a site that's even better than Gaia, with the features the users want, and then Gaia will have to copy them just to try and stay relevant.

If the trolls are immature hildren and adults, why are they given the status of a site moderator in the first place?

And, I couldn't agree more; there really IS no accountability on this site whatsoever.

There's a good reason I refuse to spend my hard-earned money on Gcash. The site's customer service is no exception.

Grats Gaiaonline;
this is what you bring,
this thread of yours has now become a hatethread.

good luck with the rest of the site,
also;
why on earth would anyone want to whitelist your ads?

you already make several hundreds of thousands on your users each year anyway,
i'd almost guess milions if not bilions for that fact,
you COULD just quit using ads whatsoever.

Hey, guys~

Site Feedback is not meant for discussions that are not involved in the first post. Since this is the case I have gone ahead and locked it.

Please keep in mind that if you wish to vent you should use the Chatterbox or your Journal.

Thanks!
