you guys do realize tek tek was being replaced with gaias own version right? no the dress up isnt that good, yet, but they have been going back and recoding old items, adding search words and such, it will get better
tektek was allowed to exist by gaia (who legally has the right to sue them at any time for using copyrighted materials) for almost a decade, but as gaia stated, they started doing things to hurt Gaiaonline, or that could be seen as scamming people, and even as them pretending to BE part of gaia, so they asked that steps be taken to change those things, and it didnt happen.
it'd be like china's disney park being build next door to the real disney
like that guy on the street selling knock off watches and handbags
its illegal, and Gaia has every right to do what they are doing.
and no, they dont have to ask our permission, they are a company and in this instance they are doing something to protect their product and its longevity and value.
if tek tek hadnt changed what they do, this likely wouldnt have happened.
honestly id always hoped that gaia would buy tek tek and use its system, but sadly things had to go the other way
ironically, my captcha for this is 'look away'
