About(Sorry my profile theme is pretty boring right now. I just switched from old school to new style because I wanted to be able to display more of my stuff, but I'm still figuring out how to customize it.)
I love Halloween, Jack, Grunny, the zombies, etc!
If anyone knows how to make a Gunny or Jack profile theme for the new profile style please let me know!
The one on my profile is huge and a lot of it is just stuff I want to remember later, so I made a list of the stuff I want most.

Yes, I was a Site Moderator from January 2005 to June 2009. I am no longer so I cannot help you with site issues. (I enjoyed it but just don't have time for it anymore. Unfortunately Gaia doesn't help with the bills!)
The best I can do is offer advice and these helpful links:
The report button is your friend! A mod may not see what's going on if you don't report it!
And in case it hasn't been said enough, never never give ANYONE your password EVER! Mods and administrators do NOT need it EVER! NO EXCEPTIONS!
Also be very careful when entering your login info that the URL says gaiaonline.com and NOT something else! There are many scam sites that LOOK like Gaia but AREN'T! Putting your info in those sites is like giving your account away! If you have by mistake please change your password IMMEDIATELY! If you have lost items please see the hacking form in the next paragraph.
If your account has been compromised by another user or you've had items/gold stolen directly from your account, please use the Hacking form
If you have a scamming problem that involves you, please use the Scamming Form (if you have good reason to believe a thread is scamming, report it. If you know someone who was scammed, they need to report it themself.)
If your account was banned and you want to find out more or contest the ban, or other account issues, please use the Feedback Form
If you're having problems in PMs, please report them! This includes things like people asking for your password, chain letters, etc.
If you are having harassment issues, report their post or if its across the site use the Abuse/Harassment Form
If you are having a problem or bug with the site, you may want to check Questions and Assistance forum to see if anyone else is having the same problem and already has an answer.
Need to find someone? A List of all Admin, Mods, and Assistants as well as a bit about each moderator type.
Each forum also has a link to mods for that forum.

Enjoy your time on Gaia and try to behave. Remember its just fun pixels. At the same time, always keep in mind behind every avatar is a real person. If its not something you would say to someone's face, why would you think its ok to say it to them in text? I find it very saddening that many people feel being anonymous is a free ticket to abusing others. If someone is bothering you, just report it and move on, don't give them the attention they want. You can also use the ignore list feature.
I'm just a dorky old geezer who lives with her calico cat and her computer in a little apartment, and doodles and makes odd things in her free time (what little free time I have). I've been on Gaia for quite a while now...
I graduated from college in '02 with a BS in Art that I really don't make enough use of. I also have a mundane full-time job so no, I don't have the time to live on Gaia constantly even though it'd be more fun. I do like to sleep sometimes. I'm still searching for a real career. I'd love to be a librarian but it doesn't seem feasible. Ideally I'd like to just work something casual part-time and do art and crafts the rest of the time. I attend several anime/comic conventions to to Artist Alley each year.
I'm not quite as big a geek as I used to be, but I still love anime and comics, and play video games now and again. I'm a bit picky about what I really like to play, but what I do like I play obsessively. I'm easily addicted to cute or unique fantasy MMOs. My main MMO is City of Heroes, but I have played WoW, WAR, Maple Story, and some others.
I'm largely a portable gamer, and am in love with my 3DS (I've had pretty much every Nintendo handheld since the Game Boy.) I also have an Xbox360. I tend towards RPGs and fun casual games.
I'm a really big fox lover, and am not above being distracted by shiny things...
On Gaia, I used to mainly hang out Minishops, Breedables and the Art Arena and other art-related areas. Now I just kind of wander. I also sometimes poke around towns hunting for flowers and trash, and play some of the minigames. I like zOMG pretty well though I'm slow about leveling.
I have an addiction to: foxy pets, avatar animation emote things, and I like avatar art (I'm generally too poor to commission it though, and I can never make up my mind on an outfit nor do I really have any consistant OCs.) My favorite minigames are puzzles and word bump, and slots on occasion just for the prizes.
Honestly, I'm not terribly interesting.
Go check out my website and artwork on DeviantArt biggrin
MINISHOPS & ART
I am an artist, and I love to make things though I don't have as much time for it as I'd like. If you want a commission, you'll have to catch a slot in my shop or auction, or really super bribe me. I also take IRL commissions (I need to eat too!), if you are interested contact me on DA. I also generally don't have much time to enter art contests.
These are the shops I have, please stop by~
Little Fox Shoppe My fox-drawing outlet heart [CLOSED]
Imaginary Fox Art Shop My doodling outlet heart
Kit's Art Auctions My thread for my infrequent avatar, original character, etc. art auctions (more elaborate than what I offer in my shop.)
Kit's Lineart Auctions My thread for when I made breedables lineart (because I'm always coming up with ideas for cool stuff.)
I've had a couple other minishops in the past (most just became too big of a project to continue), and done some lineart here and there.
ABOUT FRIEND REQUESTS
Please don't request to be my friend if you've only been on Gaia a short time, and are just doing it because I was a mod or I just happen to be some random person you came across. I generally only accept requests from people I've talked to beforehand and know reasonably well, and have something in common. I'm also probably older than you think. If I don't know who you are, I automatically decline. I'm not here to be another name on your list.
Anyhow, I'm trying not to be a meanie and turn them off altogether, but I only accept a very few.
I don't do them. Yes I'm a greedy miser. Don't beg from me, it will get you nowhere and is rude. Just because I'm an older user doesn't mean I'm rich and I'm not looking to give random people my old items. I generally have less than 10k, and I'm working on my own quests. Do the work to save yourself. Want to know how to get gold? Here are a couple guides by users: Ultimate Gold-Gaining Guide and How to make your first 100k without begging or bumping. You can also use the Charity/Quests forum to seek donators, or spam the Chatterbox for posting gold.
There is no shortcut to getting rich fast. The people who tell you differently will probably get you banned.
^I bought this at a cool minishop, I have no clue how to animate myself smile
FAVORITE PAST AVATARS
A randomizer of some favorite old avatar outfits I've come up with. I do like avatar art though I have trouble sticking to an avatar for long. None of these are set in stone, you can remove/switch items as you like. I generally come with fox parts and glasses by default. I've been going a little more crazy with my avatars lately though.
I'm also happy to get fox art in general 3nodding
