I can imagine it's fun to embark new projects.
Gaiaonline is investing a lot of time in making recolors, item bundles and gold bags.
Does become a bit of dull when you're a staffmember and working on it all day, no variety.
Maybe the new staff members are able to give site a creative and original touch.
Just read Lanzer's journal. He will continue being part of Gaia as an Admin.
He states that last Gaia years were busy ones and he now likes to take some time off and work on other projects.
Gaia hired a couple of new staff members.
