Yo! My name is Laurel.
I've been apart of this joint since February 9th of 2008.
I'm seventeen years old and a Senior in high school.
Gaia is a cool place. Or it used to be in my opinion.
I made many of the friends I have now because of Gaia!
A few of my best friends now are the people they are
in my life because of Gaia Online and I thank them for that.
However, there is a drastic disparity between 2008, when
I first started going on and now in 2015.
Gaians have become more materialistic with gold and the pressure
the website is putting on its users to buy GCash is astounding.
Because of the overuse of GCash, the Gaian economy has been
thrust into a era of distress and high inflation. At the end of 2011,
the OMG hat was selling in the Gaia Exchange for 23 million.
Now, as of April 2015, it's 240 billion. That's over 10,000 times
one of its former prices! No joke. Recolors and bundles have
become abundant and it's a fair bit annoying.
There's many other reasons why Gaia has lost its touch.
You don't have to take it just from me. Chances are, if you've
been a member prior to 2013, you'll understand the atrocities
that have been going on. Ask other Gaians. We're full of complaints!
We've had to say goodbye to TekTek, zOMG, and meebo.
Overall, we might not be able to go back to the old days, but we
can imitate the times that we miss and love. I miss the old Gaia and
that's why I'm changing my profile to "Classic." It's why I'm dressing
in older items that used to be in fashion, you might say.
This is my lame attempt at protesting. Join my little fight.
