Haha! I think having to save IRL has helped me give this place another chance. I'd kind of turned my back on it but coming back I've already made a friend or two and remembered the friends I used to have, just as important as some friends I have IRL considering the amount of time I spent on here. But currently apart from vaguely righting insignificant wrongs in the GD I am all over zOMG, it's really a cute little game.
That's what is so strange. The mixture of the old and new users. There is no change just people to fill the empty slots.
I'm here cos irl I gotta save cash and if I'm honest I can feel the love for the place rekindling. Lurking is fun.
I've not actually been a fully involved Gaian since the days of PTAG...
