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.
