    Holy moly I remember Gaia! I had never really delved into it as much though, I was a lot more invested in TinierMe (if anyone remembers that?) which was pretty similar to Gaia at the time. I miss those online avatar websites ;O; People had some amazing customisations on their little Gaia avatars.

    I used Tinierme for awhile! I feel like I used Gaia more, didnt Gaia have some side project sites that failed pretty early on in their release?
    It's had to have been several years now, I don't remember much about it, except that as quick as it appeared it was shut down.

    TinierMe was around for a while, I believe it was released in Japan first then It was released to the rest of the world after, but correct me if Im wrong! I can't remember the exact reasoning as to why it shut down, but it was super popular. I had so many awesome wearables that I spent hours trying to trade and get from their gachas ;O;

    Ohhh! Gaiaonline was my introduction gateway to selling art commissions for rlc. The art and graphics shops were such heavy flow of inspiration for me back then. I have very fond memories drawing super cute avatars and original characters ^-^

    I stopped playing around the time when a bunch of gold gen items popped up in the cash shop (maybe late 2014 to mid 2015?), came back to visit for a short period around 2016. I think I remember seeing a new currency was introduced to combat gold inflation.. By then, the player base was dwindling and the forums didn't move as fast as it used to @@

    The pet battling thing was fun for a bit too!

    I went back somewhat recently to see how things were since like most people I was surprised to see the site still going and it was disappointing to say the least. Though I may also just be older and somewhat blinded by nostalgia.
    Yeah it’s so rough. :/ at the same time though, a little part of me wishes neopets would sort of implement some of the same things gaia does with their wearables to NC
    They have a feature where you can pay to basically recolor an item in a scheme you—and usually a few other users you calibrate with, choose and it’s so cool. I’d love for them to do stuff like that with Dyeworks!

    I still log on semi frequently and was quite surprised at how many people on my friends list still go on! It’s so nice still to see so many art shops too. 🥺
    come on parappa, r e l a x



    thank you, Lyrichord for the userbar!

    Changing the dyeworks to something akin to Gaia's current system would be an absolute dream. I remember a few projects to remake specific items certain colorschemes on Gaia and how they were successful and it made me wish TNT would do the same thing for NC wearables. Especially stuff like contacts or accessories.
