About

So here's the long and short about me. I'm a 24 year old college graduate from Colorado School of Mines, I graduated with a major in Chemical Engineering and a minor in Economics. I learned to be a chemical engineer so I can go out and work in renewable energies, although I would settle for just getting my foot in the door right now. Yes, I am mildly environmentalist in the sense that I want to be a place to pass down to my kids and not feel ashamed of all the environmental issues. Anyways I play Pokemon, competitively, and I specialize in the double battles, so if ever you want a battle hit me up for my friend code. If you want to know anything else about me just drop me a line.

Some notable quotes:
"Wisdom and valor are meaningless without the faith to follow through on your goals."

"When push comes to shove you better be willing to fight for what you believe is right."

"A single stray fiber can unwind the most elegant tapestry if it is pulled."

"Light and dark are but two sides of the same coin. One cannot exist with out the other. Not all light is good and likewise not all dark is bad. For without the night how would we enjoy the day?"

Another little known thing about me is: I once was an aspiring stand-up comic, at least in the general area of campus. I haven't done a show in a year, but I still write material. Who knows I may be willing to share some of it.

Current quests:
Collect 1000 corny pick-up lines
Progress: 86/1000 -> Help me out please. Just PM me with a few. Or reply here.. I'm going to begin a journal to keep track of them all.

Thank you's

Doing well, life is good! Some bad luck but that will hopefully change soon.
How about yourself?

Unfortunately. ._.
I would hate it too.
I know there was a few people who pretty much gave up on Gaia when they started releasing the backwings through the CS. In fact they don't even go on here as much as they used to. They were pretty into Alchemy but that stunt turned them off of the site. I would imagine quite a few people would be extremely upset if they did release alchemized back-wings through FP too. I felt bad for those who went through the quests then only for Gaia to turn around and release them through the CS. Not like Alchemy is even good for anything else beside the achievements and the back wings anyways any more. Given that crafting any item ( not component since those usually require only caches ) is pretty much moot since it takes more to craft than to buy for the most part. If there is anything they should release in there it would be the stuff that is required for back-wings that there isn't much of on the MP anyways. Most definitely not already crafted Alchemized back-wings.
I know it's hard work, I once had a quest formula and decided to give it up to sell... but that was back before they fixed the caches to be sold already crafted into the Bifrost because back then it was harder. ._.
If anything I regret selling it since I started dabbling in the feature now. sweatdrop

Only good side I could see come of it is that people would still try to craft for the achievement(s).... which is what most still do anyways. If there ever was a side that was good to this mess. emotion_facepalm
Not even sure why any one would want to spend on the alchemized versions when the non-alchemized versions are fairly cheaper and still look the same. Besides there's also those achievements too. Then again I never understand the whole 'status symbol' thing. If I were to want to go after a pair of Alchemize backwings I'd rather go through the quests for them to get the achievements too. Besides it's a bit wrong to go around wearing something that says 'Alchemized' and not having put effort into it other than the gold I earned to buy them.... but that's just me.

Yeah... though I'm surprised people haven't spammed the CB yet. I do remember when the GGs first started flanking us there were some people who did post there to spread awareness. I know there's a complaint thread in Heaven too about Gaia, not too sure how active it is or if they'd post something there either.
I'm not sure about the other forums since they'll probably be moved to since this is a Gaia problem and really not going to fit under anything else but the forums about the site itself.
I'm not sure about if it even matters whether or not people even report to the BBB. While it'll bring the site's rating down, will it even do much good other than that? Yeah potential buyers/advertisers would pay attention but I doubt it would even make much of a difference over all.
Gaia already has a bad reputation across the net, I think, any ways. They're not even gaining as many potential customers as they used, I don't think. If anything from what I've noticed is that they take one look at the site and leave. I know quite a few rating sites have Gaia rated low. Maybe it'll finally get their attention with BBB's rating after all.

Yeah.. unfortunately. Though usually it gets worse before any improvement can get done to go forward. At least that's what I've always heard and been told. As pessimistic as that sounds.

Unfortunately, yeah. :/
Not much we can do to stop it, I think.
It's a plague or virus in a way that it can spread. Usually how it is with these kinds of things. Also can lead to a riot or eventually boycott and well... the domino effect.
Sad but true, no one wants to waste money or time on a business that has shown shady practices after all... Though they'll probably end up some how sweeping this all under a rug and continue as is.

Yeah... that confused me too. It really is and then there's all of the lies surrounding it. I'm not sure which would be more horrifying the fact that they lied like they did to the seller, the fact that this whole thing is confusing, or that they're trying to bribe them to keep it 'hush-hush'. X_x

It is, I don't think they should even be doing that in the first place. I'm not surprised that they did this not that they could but it's not exactly right. There is something seriously wrong that they can just drop that much gold without even a second thought on something that wasn't even worth that much. Maybe if they didn't overspend like that, this whole thing wouldn't have blown over as it did. However they did and look at the mess it caused. By spending that much was enough to gain the attention of anyone who's been keeping tabs on the Market place anyways so it really shouldn't have been so surprising to any of the staff that there would be users to catch them. I mean given how much attention the MP has gotten since the inflation hit and it's only going to grow because more and more people are concerned about what inflates and what deflates. Sure before the inflation there were people to keep tabs on that sort of thing anyways but now I think quite a few people have gotten a bit suspicious of it since the GGs came about. which only grown as they kept multiplying. It is common sense given how much drama and hate there has been on the subject that anything related would more than likely get more attention than usual.
They've probably been doing it for awhile... at least from what they've pointed out from what was bought and that they still over spent on those other items. Though probably not long enough or enough times to learn to cover the tracks.. then again this is Gaia after all. The same people who ignore the majority when if they send out a poll asking if they should change something or not... also the same people who just doesn't see the thousands of hate threads concerning GGs and do something about it.... this list of course as you know could go on.

lol I probably would too. Maybe make it a Sapphire ticket though or the ticket that takes the most amount of work because this situation is just aggravating as hell. Was reading that thread about how everyone was suggesting they'd ask for another ticket that makes them do more work. As mean as that is because it's probably not everyone on staff involved in this( I hope)... however given this whole mess and the amount of time taken away from this poor person who did nothing wrong in the first place....plus given that they also had really good intentions for that gold that they had ended up with only now to break promises that were made because of this situation. I saw that this guy will probably leave Gaia because of this mess in his OP of that thread. I really wouldn't blame him but I do feel bad for them because he had the 'short end of the stick' given to him. I am too even though it sort of shows that we really truly can't trust them( not that I restarted to trust them anyways). There were still people who thought they 'can't do no wrong' and were actually defending them in the two GCD threads. The SF thread probably changed that. :/

I was trying to read through the entire thread of that one. Makes my head spin. Did read some of the original post that originally brought up the MP spike and the whole ticket mess.
Honestly I'm not really surprised that this has even happened. More surprised about that they didn't cover their own tracks and pretty much making it so very obvious... if I am to be surprised about that whole situation.... which the more I read of it I'm not. More disgusted than anything.

And... Holy.. wow @ that link you sent me. Seriously? Apparently nothing is truly sacred on this site. They didn't have to be so shady about it... then again they didn't have to spend that much on that ticket either considering the price of it wasn't even that high. If it was indeed truly for what they've it was then why the shadiness? Why the need to over spend on it in the first place? Hell this guy's right about it sounding like 'hush money' with the staff offering to give him 'any item of his choosing' instead. It's extremely shady. emotion_facepalm
I feel bad for the guy who got somehow found himself stuck in the middle of this just by listing that damn thing.

Pretty good. It's all pretty easy stuff so far. So I have no problems with the work itself. Only problem is that everything is always due on the same day. sweatdrop

Mostly done small tweaks here and there to be expected.

A funny poster... With my dog.

What are we doing here?

I don't know.

I came because the sign said free food.

Really? Then where is this food?

Some badges I'm proud of earning in zOMG.

People who mean something to me...

After my day I could use this food.

Help Godzilla Kiki!

Awesome art, from an awesome friend.

We have a problem. Those wolves have the food.
