Eh, I think it's sometimes the case- I do go out of my way to keep my avi's eyes and skintone similar to my own, and until recently my avi's hair was a pretty spot-on match to my hair IRL (I only changed it because Gaia doesn't have a color that matches my new beige shade). I also wear classic lolita in real life and my avatar's style is generally a reflection of that. With that said, I gener ...

A FLASH from the PAST: Mobile Downloads! 9 Gaia Community Discussion 10/16/12 10:45pm
Your Blushing Paladin
I remember that feature. Frankly, it bugged me quite a bit. The option of purchasing via my phone was, in theory, pretty cool. In practice, the significantly higher prices made it really stupid. For just $1 more than the mobile price, I could order 2 MCs- which certainly seemed like the better deal to me! I wasn't sorry to see it go, but now that standalone apps are more common I would like to see ...

Gaia being a game!? 78 Gaia Community Discussion 6/12/13 1:57pm

Well, I don't think the fact that a lot of the activity on Gaia happens in the forums somehow makes it less of a game... the forums are still meant to entertain (even if arguments aren't always fun) so it still feels a bit like Gaia's a game to me. In my eyes, that doesn't really de-legitimize Gaia or interactions on Gaia, though. It may often be said or meant as an insult, but to my eye ther ...

Not to be annoying or anything, but seriously, how is Gaia not a game? I mean, games are generally things made for the purpose of having fun. They don't always have defined rules or paths to success, they don't always have winners and losers, and they don't have a single, necessary format. All they really have in common is that they're primarily constructed to have fun- which is Gaia's main purp ...

Why are you on/using Gaia? 103 Gaia Community Discussion 11/1/12 6:20am

Honestly, it's the avatars. I have a stupid, ridiculous obsession with dressup games online, and I love Gaia because it has a really great variety of items and a dressup system that isn't stupidly obnoxious. I like the community, but even when I'm not interested in finding friends and chatting I'm totally content lurking on the site and collecting crap for my avi.

Eh, let's face it: Gaia's a pretty trivial site. Though there are sections for discussing more serious matter, the truth is that a majority of members don't stay on Gaia for deep, extended discussions- they're here to have fun. There's absolutely nothing wrong with being on a site for that purpose, but since it's primarily a site meant for light amusement, it's easy to see why people assume it's s ...

I don't care for it, either, but this was a long time ago before it kind of went to crap X'D Lol I suspect you are being optimistic! Even when it's online, I do find those words offensive, but beyond that, it's so dumb to use them... They're very emphatically against the TOS so why get banned over something so dumb and trivial?

"But that's not even old.... is it?" 111 Gaia Community Discussion 10/17/12 12:52am

That may be a contributing factor as to why I feel relatively "young" in Gaia terms. I've been around since '04, but I'm only 21. As I'm significantly younger than a significant chunk of the users on the site, it's really hard to feel like an "oldbie." Also, I kind of agree with all the changes... no matter how long you've been around, it's easy to feel like a newbie.

The same thing happened to me once in the GD, since my avi typically has darker skin. Most people know better than to use racist slurs IRL, so it's a complete mystery why people (no matter their age) would consider that appropriate on Gaia D'X

I know people judge on avatars, but I don't. I appreciate a nice avatar as much as the next person, but I'm always very happy to chat to users in starter clothing or an avatar that's personally unappealing to me if they have something interesting to say. Frankly, I find people with simpler avatars are more likely to be friendly- those with nicer avatars tend to have a bee in their butts and often ...

why dont long term members get beta first? 54 Gaia Community Discussion 10/17/12 1:59am

I think it's silly to let people who've been on the site longer play first. Yes, it would be a nice perk for sticking with the site for so long, but ultimately I think it benefits Gaia to get a good mix of users- both new AND old- to test their games. That way, they can get a sample representative of their entire user base because, let's face it: older members are invariably on the upper end of th ...

Favorite Lolita Accessory 26 Lolita Fashion 10/19/12 4:06pm
Bunny-Lolita-C...
I have two things I love: brooches, and "odd" hair accessories. Brooches are just a great way to dress up an outfit, and fun hair accessories are just so cool. I loved AP's recent Cinema Doll eye mask canotier, but my favorites are my AP witch hats, teacup hat, and clock canotier.

As someone who's interested in Lolita 9 Lolita Fashion 10/16/12 5:10am
Robotic Chibi-tan
Where do you wear Lolita? I wear lolita to work and just around- at this point the amount of lolita vastly exceeds the amount of "normal" clothing I own so it's just my everyday fashion ^^ I don't live in a particularly large or quirky city and my look doesn't really draw much attention. With that said, though, I don't wear OTT sweet. I don't have a thousand accessories in my hair, a candy-print ...

I feel the same way- I've had others refer to me as an "oldbie" but I wouldn't use that term to refer to myself. At this point, '03 users are the only ones I really consider "old," everyone else either joined the same year I did or at some point thereafter and is therefore a newbie to my jaded eye. But probably that's just our subconscious trying to trick us into thinking we aren't old and ha ...

I stop talking to users the second they claim they're an "OG" or an "oldbie." Especially since they're usually from '08 or '09 :vein:
