After only dropping in once every other month or so I wondered what happened to your staff notices. Now I know you're an average Gaia user again(be it one with arguably the most respect) . Perhaps it's the Bebop fan inside of me, but your post's always seemed more important than the others. I don't have any prestige to my name but even I can't quite say goodbye to Gaia after being on it for so long, so I imagine we'll still be seeing you around. Anyways I'm late to hop on the bandwagon but good luck, but not farewell.
I just want to say, I really, really miss your battle system, even after they tried to kill it by messing with the regen rates, and adding the god-mode stuff it still kicked this new ones a** to the moon..
I hope you are doing well and you are missed here, as well as many, many others that have been fired or left.
I hope you both feel somewhat better. Just cherish the good days and on the bad days enjoy your corgi. Corgi videos and pictures are always fun to watch too. Here is a video for both of you to enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=to0JYZJxXOc&channel=WorldsFuzziestVideos. Yeah my corgi Wesley isn't doing too well. He's falling with walks and he had to have some teeth pulled. He's having trouble using his doggy door lately. I'll probably try to take him on a little walk today.
Oh man I just found out about Lanzer leaving last night. I'm so sad about it. It kind of makes me upset at the current CEO and think about the last Doctor Who episode. Like Gaiaonline feels like those robots. Bits of pieces have been constantly replaced, that the original thing that existed is no longer there. Throughout the years it has been sad with people quitting or being laid off. Like for me first I remember Mavdoc being laid off, s2b2 quit, then JK and pan got laid off, then swarf got laid off, then DJ and you quit. Some of the founders like VO and L0cke quit. Then lanzer quits. It's like who else is next that the community cares about that will leave? Will it be pepper or sisky or Zero or reapersun next? I really don't know if I can stay on this site much longer or not. I've tried quitting before and failed. I know I said if zOMG! got removed or if lanzer quit, there wouldn't be much point of being on the site any longer. I guess how I can best describe it, is lanzer leaving Gaia will be like Disney without Walt or Apple without Steve Jobs. Like the whole heart of what made Gaia, Gaia feels like it's fading fast. I am very sad about lanzer. It was sad enough with Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall, Shirley Temples, and a few others dying this year. It does feel like Gaiaonline is dying. At least there is still zOMG! and friends keeping me around, but when those go, I feel like there won't be anything left to keep me on here. I really hope lanzer keeps the community updated on his future ventures that he does. He's a very good entrepreneur it seems from the little time I've talked to him through PMs and ATAs, so I'm sure he'll have a very successful future. I know I've only been on Gaia four years, but even in that time this site is feeling like Enron now which is sad. Just ironic my brother just mentioned well at least with lanzer still being on the site, there is still hope which is good. It's just very sad and shocking news to hear him leave.
Nah, I don't think health related issues are comparable. It does help me to think there is always someone with something worst. Like at least I don't have cancer yet. Ouch so you both have IBD. That sounds very painful. That is odd you both have it and hopefully it wasn't from the environment while living in the bay area. I did have to look it up. That's sad like Fibromyalgia there is no cure for it. I think invisible stuff is the worst because people think you are fine based on appearance when you are not. I hope tiranaki keeps happy and has friends to talk to. I know I reached a low point myself and it was talking to friends that I had met on Gaia through skype and meebo that really helped me a lot. There may never be a miracle drug or treatment for any of us, but it helps enjoying every moment of every day. I know I can't focus on the future of the past with my disability, but living day by day gets me through it. It was also pretty funny when I was living in California and doing exercises at a pool next to a retirement home, how funny and pervy old people can be. I hope I'm still funny when I reach an old age too. Thanks for sharing something personal about yourself and your wife. It takes me awhile to share personal stuff about myself too.
Aww I hope you both feel better soon then. Yeah fun isn't it? Having health issues in the 20s and 30s. I hope you are able to figure out what is going wrong. Guess I could list my long list of health issues. I have Fibromyalgia, chronic back pain, muscle spasms, osteoarthritis, torn ligaments in both my ankles, some depression due to the pain, and migraines from having epilepsy as a kid. I've been trying to apply for disability, but I'll probably get denied. I do use zOMG! as a way to cope with the pain. I'm just trying to not like my health problems control my life which is always a constant struggle. I'm trying to pass a state exam to be able to file taxes for people, but that is challenging too since Oregon has the hardest exam in the country. I'll figure it all out somehow. If I can get through college, I can figure out how to take care of myself some way too.
Yeah guess I should be happy there are games with events again now. I do like having a combo of games and forum activities to do. Thank you. I'm just dealing with the usual chronic health issues. It just feels like the site is going through a lot of growing pains and lots of bitter feelings going around. Sometimes I just have to take a break from the site and do other stuff. It's odd when being on a site is stressful at times.
