The CB dictionary by Tiffany Brick
Xelvin - one of the few and original Spartans of CB.
Originally, there was only one town map. Then there was an update, and we got the one walkway (not the fishing hole) out of Barton, between Barton and Gambino. We also got the town of Gambino. We could see a building labeled Casino as well as the Weapons Store. (That was also the first time we found out that Josie was running the bank, and she was the one who helped the trades go through!) The Weapons Store (the one with the crossed swords) never did get realized, but us little Gaians had such big dreams for what would be in that shop...we also had big dreams that the little shop with the music note for a sign...on the Barton map...would eventually be a music exchange source akin to how the library (Manga; with a book on it) was a manga exchange source.
We also had pretty big ideas about how the Casino was going to work out eventually (which were pretty much bang-on, but boy did it ever take a while...by the time Gaia actually did put the Casino out, most people had forgotten about the building on the map), and we speculated that you'd be able to put gold into the 'bank' in a 'savings account' to help you quest, and that you'd get a little bit, like one or two percent interest.
There was no Marketplace, so the Exchange forum was THE place to go to buy and sell. At the time, the only items there were were the gold shop items, and most people didn't sell them back to the shop. We'd list them in the Exchange in a thread titled 'garage sale' for ten or fifteen gold. This made spending FIVE HUNDRED (basically, an entire day's earnings) gold on a trading pass make a little bit of sense, because then you could access having other people's used clothing for a lot cheaper than the store.
Then some people made their living as shop owners. They'd go through the 'garage sale' threads, and buy up EVERYTHING, to list in their own thread at just-under-store-prices. Cheap enough that, before anyone bought anything at the gold store, they checked all the secondhand-shop threads looking for their item first. It also kept the gold, of which there wasn't much, circulating inside the economy.
This was how the concept of 'exchanging' as a source of income was born. Lots of people didn't want to take ALL day digging through threads labeled 'garage sale' looking for that one thing they wanted, as cheap as they could find it, so having a 'big shop' that was always in business and kept a lot of inventory on hand made a lot of sense. At the same time, people didn't want to have to sit around for days or weeks with items they didn't want anymore, when they could use the gold for something else, so often they would skip the garage sale thread and sell directly to these shopkeepers.
Fun fact: At the time, the total number of items on Gaia was so small, many shopkeepers had a list of EVERY SINGLE ITEM ON GAIA and how many of that item they had in stock. This was easy enough to maintain, if a little tiresome to update.
First website address was www.go-gaia.com
The original shopkeepers were named after the servers; Ian, Sasha, Ruby, and Peyo. Later we got servers named after food, like Sushi, Chicken, and Ice Cream.
The way it worked was, you put the server name after a backslash in the web address to force the use of a particular server. As in, www.go-gaia.com/sasha Except no-one would ever use that particular string, because the Sasha sever was well-known by far to be the most unreliable of the group. Which is probably why the Sasha shopkeeper was written to be a total airhead.
The original center of activity was a hub on the old Barton map (which looks basically nothing like the map in use now) labeled Manga, where the site kept an archive of online-accessible, free, sometimes downloadable manga and comic sources. The other center of activity was a heart-shaped building labeled Personals where people used to cyber with each other anonymously. Graphically. That special standard of literacy has been lovingly preserved to this day, in the form of late-night Chatterbox.
What Genyusai had to say: Being a 2003'er, I can tell you everything DragonMistress wrote is true, but she failed to note one major event...
The Rollbacks! OH GOD, The rollbacks! I remember one day I found an extremely rare and valuable Pink Box! (They were pink boxes that gave out items, not pink links like we have today).
Back when the most gold I had at any one time was 200-300 gold and I knew I would never afford anything that was more than 2000g, I found a pink box!! A guy was willing to offer me
an unheard of 15,000 gold!!!!! Jesus, I still remember how excited I was to get that much! So I made the trade, and first thing I did was buy Doll Ears for my best friend! They set me back almost 6k.
I gave them to her and we were happy... until we noticed the site was being veeery slow. In fact, it straight up went offline!
Later, i believe Lanzer posted an update but the whole site looked like Gaia in 1994, only text graphics and 2 images showing a burnted out chipset. It seems gaia has been Slashdotted! 5 days later, gaia came back online, but everything was regressed to just before I got my pink box... My friend lost her doll ears,
and we were both devastated..
