Also runway was interesting but it's plagued with cheaters (at least when I was active?) Did they ever fix runway?
I have little desire to interact with that feature anymore as well.

I dislike the color scheme too sad
I used to be happy when an item came in a color I liked! It was like a happy surprise!
Now it's just kind of like yeah okay that item is popular. users are going to recolor it to death.
It's really hard for me too not to just make an avatar in a color scheme now due to the shoddy awful avatar maker.
Tektek was honestly so much better since it sorted by color and other subcategories. And it closed like years ago!
I mean I do like a few color schemes like catharsis or vain but it kind of sucks to see an item only in one scheme.
I was okay with cash shop recolors of some limited stuff because sometimes they were some change? Like the march recolors or the nekola series.
I think I just fool around with my items, get frustrated, and never finish ahah. It's so hard to make something now. I really despise the av maker.
Gaia's items in my eyes are really pretty and my fav out of all the avatar maker sites.

Yeah I popped in that project recolor thread years ago and had to leave when everyone was just patting each other on the back and congratulating people for recolors.
It was kind of special maybe with the first tickets? But there's so many tickets now it just feels like overpriced kickstarter tiers to me that people would pledge at.
Omg lol. I can't believe people had that kind of attitude. I do remember browsing stuff in GCD and people genuinely upset that Gaia let their recolor drop more than others and like you said
it wasn't worth much.

Yeah I liked seabreeze too but then decided to consolidated on other color schemes haha. It's a nice color scheme for sure! It's easy on the eyes and i like the brown.
And yeah people do seem to recolor more for profit and a sense of elite-ism.

Lol i only read site feedback threads that bash Gaia. Wonder what that says about me xD?
It does seem like Gaia has a history of failed projects. Monster Galaxy, zOMG (I loved it when it came out though!), etc.
It's kind of sad that Gaia hasn't been able to expand past the forums. The forums really no longer holds my attention nor do I even have the desire to post and chat with people haha.
I think I also had a burst of hope when lanzer returned and there were some positive changes like tackling inventory. However, I am disappointed that there really isn't anything that different.
The Halloween event felt so bland I participated for maybe a bit?

Aww thanks again! And it's okay rant away!! I want to rant too haha.

My WL isn't even a WL anymore. It's just items I follow that I don't really need. I can't remember the last item I wanted so much I would sell everything for it.
Yeahhh for sure the whole tickets and congratulating people for getting them and stuff. It does breed a weird elitism culture.
I kind of roll my eyes when people dominate a color scheme too or demand gaia to make a new color scheme. Makes for good business planning though ahaha. I remember when seabreeze first came out and I just liquidated everything I had in that scheme for profits. I feel like it definitely diluted the creativity. There are items in a bazillion colors now and it's no more of a feat to get an avatar to color match anymore. I remember feeling happy and proud when I got random items to work together.
I haven't tried any RIGs recently. I just lurk SF a lot haha so I saw lots of people ranting about that. Tbh don't think I'll ever play a recent RIG again.
I do agree that it is nice for Gaia to rerelease stuff. You could probably make a nice av for cheap now too.

I'm okay! Internship and school are pretty fun. I thankfully don't have to worry too much for other responsibilities so I can handle it.
But yeah same. Gotta start adulting now ;w;

It's tempting but it's okay! I have a bunch of items already haha.

Yeah I really don't like how they pushed mix10 like crazy with gold gens.
I feel like a lot of the creativity that Gaia once had is kind of lost? New items are so sparse and there is flood of recolors.
Rates for new RIGs are low and gatcha and lucky catch are just a cash grab scheme in my eyes :/

Hope all is well for you!!

Aww that's so nice of you!
I am not too sure. I don't really play much. Dress up here and there.
Also Gaia has some weird practices again.
It's okay but thanks for thinking of me!

Thank you for the bundle idea! And I checked the other one, it may not be cost effective at the moment but It s good to know that it exists!

:cc May I see some of your items? Would love to buy some cc: !!

I won the arena (2nd place RP) with what I believe is below average quality >,>;;
So it can t be so unfair. I do question the algorithm that determines which avatars are voted for however.

Yeah I understand. he s returned yet we are still constantly spammed with announcements..
At least he s creating a dialogue with the community in SF.

Omg now I feel like a chump for buying those dolls xD
Thanks so much!! I saw there was another one but it's 400b e-e;;

I really did xD

I heard that it goes down during events because Gaia can't find a way for new items not to leak?? Not sure if that's true.
But in the time I've been back I'd say I got to use it maybeee two weeks.

Yeahh I heard about the rigged runways too :/
One of the reasons I decided to really leave.
And I'm happy my friends still stay! A really good one has been driven off though and that sucks. She was so much fun D:
The others are mostly artists who sell art for pretty high so I can see why they stay.
I'm just hoping lanzer returning shifts gaia's focus away from cash cow to an actual community.

I'm mostly just picking up an cheap dollies I don't have so there's none I must have.

Ahhh noppeee. I splurged and bought it xD
Came back and GCash was so cheap!!

I know. I remember when it actually took effort to make an avatar that matched :/
Then again we also had tektek so that made it easier.

Mmm noot suree. I've been catching up with old Gaian buddies and gifting items mostly xD
And trying to enter runway but I'm not so great at that yet xD

Thank-q for the dolls!

I wish I would have known D:
I sold a rainbow ticket a few weeks ago! Would've been happy to discount it for you.

I tried looking for other avatar sites but nothing felt as good as Gaia. Maybe it's just home for me xD
Yeah I did leave like Xmas of 2014 due to inflation. Really got fed up with all the announcements (they're still doing it) and GCash.
