About


Welcome.

I've been on this site for a long time, at this point all of the friends I had started Gaia with have quit the site, most I have even lost touch with in real life. This account almost feels like an artifact of my younger life.

I feel like it's also a kind of curse

No matter how much I think "this site is for kids," or "it's too nerdy and weird" I keep coming back.

I've been on since the end of 05 and have seen this site go through a lot of changes. There have been many cool and interesting things that Gaia has released in the past that were a pleasure to experience. But recently things have started to take a dramatic shift more towards profit for Gaia than for focusing on free and fun content for users. I don't know where this will lead the site as a whole but I can't imagine that it will be anywhere good.

And yet I'm curious as to where it will lead. Will this massive bubble of inflation collapse, or will prices continue to skyrocket? I'm no economics major, but it doesn't look like the current marketplace will be very friendly to new users.

At any rate, only time will tell.

And I suppose I will stick around until the end.

Hey~~!! I found the gift you sent me. The only problem is, I didn't seem to receive it.. All I get is this:
"Data Validation Error
The item was not found in your inventory."

It's a shame, man. But like I said, it's the thought that counts. Hahah. XD Cheers.

The day we hit 1 million is the day I probably give up gaia completely. I'll give away all my items and gold and just go.
But we probably still have a couple years before that at least xd

I at least have a goal on here. I've been trying to help the MPT in Chatterbox get to a million pages, for 8+ years, but aside from that, ya there's nothing really to do. I used to enjoy the farm game they had on facebook for awhile, but that's not really Gaia, and to my knowledge it's long gone.
And the being "wealthy" bit does suck, because I would never actually sell these items to obtain the gold anyways.

Yeah, I kind miss the time Coco kitties were only 9k XD
And your first comment of the day only gave you 20 gold
As glad as I am that my items make me a billionaire, if I were to start over fresh, I'd probably quit in 3 days because of the amount of RL money I would have to spend just to make enough gold to buy the items I want. I remember when getting the 20k to buy my katana was an impossible process.

I agree to everything you said in your profile. I've been here for awhile too, off and on again. It's gotten kind of crazy here.
