Lanzer's Journal
It's been 15 years!
How time flies, we're now celebrating the 15th year of Gaia Online!

For anyone who is reading this, a big thank you for all of you who love and care for the Gaia Online community. The online world had changed dramatically throughout the years, and it is beyond our greatest expectation that we are still able to do what we love till this very day. Without your support, all this wouldn't be possible.

We spent a lot of thought in the current valentine's event, though the scope is small, I love the idea of having events that encourage interactions between players in a meaningful way, and moving forward we'll not only focus on that more, but to find ways to make a lot of the event features part of the site moving forward.

Recent work had been all upgrades and overhaul. The server upgrades had been grueling with endless bugs to fix, while the security upgrade for Towns left a lot of Gaians unable to use some of the core features such as the friend finder function. We will try our best to fix those functions, while planning to start work on converting our flash games and Towns to HTML 5 as soon as the mobile app is ready. Recent work also include upgrades for some of the tools that are used by the art team, so these won't show up on the website, but should help the art team speed up the process in item creation.

We had a neat little feature for the Gaia anniversary ball. I hope that you'll enjoy it! Happy Anniversary!

Hey Lanzer, I am wondering when you are going to fix glitch with the gc. It appears when you redeem a rixty cards their site takes the gc and says you bought gc. Yet, when it comes to Gaia, you do not get your GC. When will this be fixed?

I put in a ticket but as you know this takes forever and three days. I am just posting this to let you know of the issue and I get to bed before I can do ATA.

Thank you for reading.

I know normal users won't see it, but I'd really love to hear about what those upgrades are that you made for the art team. emotion_kirakira

Happy Anniversary, Gaia Online!

I'm glad I came to this site, so many things happened in the past years! Thanks to you too, for all those times you worked hard for the best of Gaia, Lanzer!

Wow, I feel I have aged when I look back to what it used to be like over a decade! xd

Happy Gaiaversary and a huge thank you to you and all the staff members, past and present, who've helped the site though the years. Gaia has been my home on the internet for a little over 12 of of those years.

Thank you for all of your hard work! It's been a beautiful 14 years (I missed that first year), and I look forward to many more. Backend upgrades that have been put off for years are way more important than events, though I've super loved the direction of the recent events. Cooperative tree decorating? Creative fortunes to laugh about? And both events were the perfect length, since so many of us have busy lives. You guys have been doing everything really well, thank you.

Happy Anniversary! May there many more years of Gaia to come!

The Valentine's Event was perfect! Very enjoyable. It reminded me of another time years ago. Thank you. Encouraging interactions between players in a meaningful way is what I always liked about Gaia. It's the reason I have always enjoyed Booty Grab, zOMG, and a few other areas. It is always more enjoyable to interact with others.

The new features are a nice touch. Thank you for all you are trying to do to make Gaia even better. It is appreciated.
