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!!

I'm kinda surprised in a sense it didn't get closer since it did walk towards me a small bit, probably curious about the kitten i was holding (the one who ended up spooking the deer later when he walked away since he never saw a deer before). I don't think i had any pockets which is the reason i didn't have my phone on me. It was a really young deer too which is probably why it go so close to me. Maybe the apple trees in our yard will be tempting again to it

aw you missed my crazy cat lady avi lawl. Also it was really cool. My parents were surprised it got so close to me, like it was probably about 6 feet away from me but that's still hugely close. I wish i had a picture to show you but i didn't have my phone on me at the time. It's kinda funny how that works out, always the smallest thing scares the biggest one

HI MAV. Oh guess what? There was a deer in our yard earlier and it got decently close to me. Also it walked up to one of our cats and when it walked up to one of the kittens he got a little scared and jumped and scared the deer lol

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
