New Entry, Old Rant
i know it has been said before, and i know there are those who also agree with me...the new gaia, yes it has its perks but its become way too complicated for my liking... in the process of becoming extremely organized things can just become to bothersome (as i have experienced while looking through subfolder after subfolder of my photos)
That however is not my main rant today... today the selected topic is the ever increasing amount of 'cash only' stores.....
i fully understand the need for funding to run the website....
but couldn't you give us some good items that we can buy with the good ol' gaia gold?
It has been a while since i have been on gaia, main reason only being the weight given by university homework...i think the aquarium is a great idea....i love watching fish (real or generated) however.. why give us the fish tank, with no option if we must maintain it only via gaia cash....
my suggestion is this.. why not make it available via the good ol gold as well as the cash ( like i said i understand funding is needed to run a website like this) but i believe common folk should be able to have access to everything as well....even if its ridiculously high priced in gold it would atleast give other people who can not afford to buy cash (such as those who are working their way through post-secondary, our younger users, and other misc. users who can't afford it) the chance to feel fully part of the gaian community instead of being forced down past the virtual poverty line....
So that is my rant and i'm sticking to it.... unless the whole purpose behind this is so that merchants of the marketplace may have a steady economy selling off cash items for a pixelated arm and a leg...

I am always open to comments about my 'rants'... feel free to leave them.. users and NPC's and everyone else accepted smilies/icon_smile.gif
