I'm an artist who previously worked on the environments and various design elements for zOMG!. After my time at Gaia, I was an environment set dresser for the game Bastion on Xbox Live. Even though I don't work at Gaia anymore, I still host the Friday Dev Meats and even occasionally play zOMG!!

Yeah I think that's part of the reason why zOMG! is so much fun is all the slang words that are made up with it. I've gotten people so mad at me before using slang words saying that I'm using bad English. But I just go on with my day. I was trying to help a new zomg player the other day that I guess started zomg when it came out and is getting back into it again. It's hard teaching people how to play, but I'm trying my best even though mother fluff and flying gift boxes dazed us a lot. But I'm glad she had fun at least.

Oh Rafi asked codemonkey about zOMG! and this is what she got as a response:
"The dev that will be looking into fixing zOmg is the head of development for all of Gaia. He has mostly been working on the other site, so he does not have a user name that I am aware of.

I don't know where the idea comes from that there is some sort of conspiracy to remove features from Gaia. There is no ploy, plot or scheme to simply remove anything from the site. The only time things are removed are usually for technical reasons such as in the case of Frontier Skies, or if something is up only for an event or holiday.

I don't have any technical details on zOmg myself, as I am not a Java developer, so I can't speak to where any of it stands technically or to what specifically is being fixed, though I believe it has something to do with the way the game talks to the server. It may be related to the server cycling issue, but again I'm not sure.

I have been looking into the flash code lately and am quite impressed by the level of detail added to the game.

That's everything I know about it."

This was a funny read, especially the section about zOMG!: Gaiaonline

Hey, it was nice seeing you again yesterday. Thanks for making me feel welcome, despite my lack of regular attendance to these meats. (I've noticed you do that with everyone in the past - no matter who they are, you make them feel welcome.) heart It's great to see you're still around after all this time.

we are hoping to get some kind of confirmation that gaia is really doing this work, and not just pulling zomg to get rid of it. People will probably be asking about this at the meet. xd

You're working on an indie game? Very nice!

Haha, way back when I was always afraid that I wouldn't really contribute to whatever conversation that was going on. Since the last month I attended, I just didn't talk because your conversations got bit hilariously weird. I couldn't imagine what goes on in those people's minds. Really appreciate their talks though. That's what's made me come back.

Red error messages? That seems so comical! I would have loved to have been there for that.
Have you worked on any games lately? And yeah, I've been fine. Been trying to schedule my junior year.
Anyways, I think I'll have time to come to a few over the Summer. I don't think anyone would really remember me though. I never talked in those.
