    I do that sometimes as well. I'll post on their profile or send a PM to see if maybe, just maybe, someone logs in and actually remembers me in regards to cringe, my profile looked like that of a myspace or "friendpages" website. i only defaulted it this past year, thank god. think i'm gonna login now just to see if I can buy the item I want on my wish list

    EDIT: I bought the item on my wish list.

    Oh man it has been years since I logged into my gaia account. I remember my guild, it was the best.

    Even if the gold gens didn't kill gaia it owuld have probably naturally died with the end of the era.

    They sold out and destroyed the market themselves, Gaia was a game that had potential.



    I was a long time gaia online player and accumulated an insane amount of money. I didn't like the community very much because a loooott of the people were absolutely nuts, like PCers but on crack. I got a low-ball offer on a very expensive item and got into an argument with a well known person on the forums. Same day I got banned for RWT. Imagine playing legit for years only to get banned for not selling an item cheap to a known person. Honestly if I had known that she had mods in her inner circle beforehand, I would have sold the item for cheap.

    Now I'm back on Neopets, far better IMO.

    i just checked back in on gaia after i watched this video, which also is a really interesting breakdown of the history of how things got so crazy



    it felt cathartic to delete all my cringey old RPs and giveaway all my stuff

    I still log in from time to time, but yes it pretty much died once the gold bots came in. It used to be so fun back then.
