About

Send me a PM, I'm a nice guy. Just don't beg, and don't send a friend request until I've talked to you for a little bit first and have gotten to know you.

If you are one of the many who have come here to say "thank you for buying from my store," then to you I say: You're welcome, and thanks for selling smilies/icon_biggrin.gif

What else? <______<

Yhea, 10m for $1.50. *old man voice* Back in my day, the Sword of Aegis was 12k, and we had to post and play games fer weeks to make dat much. Ya couldn't just buy yer way into being a billionaire. */old man voice*

The rumors about Gaia closing actually reached the point where an admin officially announced that there were "no plans" to close the site anytime soon, so take that for what it's worth. Nothing wrong with being Cash-oriented (after all, Gaia is a business), but it's just depressing to see it reach the scope (nothing but profit at all costs) that it has.

Guess I don't have much to add that hasn't already been said...

So what else is new and with you, anything?

I'm in the same boat. If it weren't for the SSB discussion thread and talking to Lystra once every six months I probably would have quit Gaia eons ago. I try to pop in at least once a day just to see what's going on, but I really have little reason to care about the site anymore.

The site got a new CEO some time ago. One of the many changes he's made is to releasing lots of $1.50 "Gold Generators" (GGs). They work like the $1.50 RIGs of ancient times, except instead of spitting out random items, they spit out random quantities of Gold. The average payout is generally between 10-25 million per GG.

Ten million Gold. For the price of a cheeseburger with fries.

Soon, it may not matter whether you come here or not. There's a lot of speculation over the site shutting down for good. The wrecked economy, the sudden lack of communication from the devs, the mass re-release of old MCs (you might have noticed that every reference to Gaia's promise to mass re-release MCs has been conveniently removed), the GGs--these are all signs of a web community about to go under. Gaia even has a new policy not to release any new event unless it has some way to directly pay for itself. Not sure what there is to do around here anymore? Pay money. Not being cynical, that's truly about it.

You may remember TinierMe, another avatar website. It did a lot of these exact things Gaia is now doing to squeeze as much money as possible out of users, consequences be darned, and then suddenly shut down for good with next to no warning. Message boards in general are becoming obsolete in favor of social media and are simply not as profitable as they once were, GGs or not. If you wish to remain in contact with your old friends here, I'd recommend making sure you have some alternate way to contact them.

I could go on and on, but I guess I'll stop there...

So uh... welcome back. stare
