01 What the Fluff FixesEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices What the Fluff Fixes - codemonkey37179 Mon Jul 01, 2013 9:29 pm

What the Fluff Fixes

I've made a few changes and fixes to the flash side of Towns 2 and the What The Fluff Event.

Here are the errors addressed:

  • The dreaded white screen error should be gone.
  • Other players entering your Tic-Tac-Toe game room
  • Getting back a clone of your last fluff
  • Sleeping, eating and washing errors.

There still seems to be a problem with the fluffs playing hide and seek in the houses. If this happens, for a temporary solution, say the phrase: call pet. If the fluff is just hiding it will reveal itself.

Also on the smart phone there is a go directly to my house button.

02 Uh-oh HaloEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Uh-oh Halo - Narumi Misuhara Tue Jul 02, 2013 2:04 am

Uh-oh Halo

Earlier today we announced that the halo would be available from 9pm to 10pm tonight. Unfortunately, we forgot to tell that to Waffles and it didn't end up getting added until much later. So we will be extending the halo's life in the sale until midnight tonight along with the other secret items.

We apologize for any inconvenience this error may have caused.

09 Cash Shop Event BundlesEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Cash Shop Event Bundles - siskataya Tue Jul 09, 2013 2:09 pm

Original event items will no longer be available in future Cash Shop Event Bundles

Hey everyone,

I wanted to make a post to talk to you about the recent Event Bundles available in the cash shop at the end of the Summer Event.

Our intention in releasing the bundles was to not only provide a way for Gaians who missed the event to get the items, but to score some bonus items as well. Since event items have always been available in the marketplace for people to sell/buy, we didn't realize that including them in such a bundle would make people irate or feel their efforts to earn them in the event were undermined. That was not our intention at all, and are sorry if people feel this way.

Last night, I said in ATA that we would be including original event items in future Event Bundle releases, but we've read your feedback, and re-discussed the matter. Based on your comments, we have decided, going forward, NOT to include original event items in these bundles. We want people to enjoy the items they earn in events, and to feel confident and happy participating in the events. You can still buy/sell your event items in the marketplace of course, but they will no longer be included in Cash Shop Event Bundles.

As for the sale of Event Bundles in general, please be aware that we will still be having Event Bundles for sale in the Cash Shop, but these will contain only new event-themed items such as recolors of existing event items, new event-themed items that cannot be earned in the event, etc.

Take care and thanks for reading!

09 WTFluff Loyalty Rewards ProgramEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices WTFluff Loyalty Rewards Program - ubermegAtrOn Tue Jul 09, 2013 4:55 pm

WTFluff Loyalty Rewards Program

The WTFluff event ended a few hours earlier than advertised, which inadvertently prevented some Gaians from redeeming their loyal fluffacorns for the event item. To compensate, all users whose pets were maxxed on loyalty (200/200) that had not previously gotten the item have been granted it; you can find it in your Inventory (look on the last page).

For everyone else, you can get yours in the marketplace. Good work, fluffers!

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Favorites - New Feature Being Tested - Princess Angelishia Wed Jul 10, 2013 4:33 pm

Favorites - New Feature Being Tested

Hello everyone!

Just wanted to give you a heads up that SCAS members are beta-testing a new feature today called Favorites! This new feature will allow you to collect and share your favorite avatars and posts from all around Gaia.

Testing this feature means a couple things:

  • • You may receive (or have already received) notifications of your avatar or posts being favorited by the SCAS team that is testing out the feature.
  • • We are temporarily disabling the ability to add arena entries to your watchlist, because from now on adding to your arena watchlist will be done through this feature.

Thank you!

01 CI Cleanup announcementEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices CI Cleanup announcement - siskataya Thu Aug 01, 2013 9:12 pm

Clarification on the recent CI Cleanup announcement!

Hey all,

Just wanted to take a moment to clarify this announcement a bit since we've seen some pretty wild speculation about the message and we don't want anyone to have gotten the wrong idea about what we were trying to say!

Basically, this announcement was to let everyone know that we've gone ahead and removed a LOT of the older non-victory items as prizes from the CI. We've heard you loud and clear- we know you've long requested the removal of many of these older items from the CI, so we've obliged!

Anyway, we hope the removal of many of these older non-victory items will make getting items from playing a CI more enjoyable experience overall. Hope this also makes the announcement a bit more clear for some of you fabulous Gaians who have expressed confusion about its meaning.

Be well

What the Fluff Cleanup Underway

Just wanted to let you all know that I'm beginning the process of removing those soulbound Event Pet: Fluff and Event Pet: Pegacorn Fluff items from your inventories. This shouldn't take too long and hopefully won't blow anything up, though I do have the monkeys at the ready to take the blame for me if I need them to. If you see either of those items poof from your inventory, that's me so don't worry, you're not being hacked. I'll update this once all the removals have been completed.

11 What the Fluff Cleanup Complete!Edit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices What the Fluff Cleanup Complete! - Uncle Kenny Sun Aug 11, 2013 2:41 am

What the Fluff Cleanup Complete!

Alright! The cleanup went off without a hitch and I didn't have to let the monkeys loose. At this point, everyone's Event Pet: Fluff and Event Pet: Pegacorn Fluff should be removed. If yours somehow survived the wipe, congratulations, it's still the same! Please file a bug report in the Bug Reports & Technical Support forum if you do still have it in your inventory and I'll remove it for you.

To clarify some of the confusion I saw with this, the Event Pet items were only meant to be used in the event. The only pet from Summer that will be used in the initial launch of the Pets system is the one named Pet: Pegacorn Fluff. The Event Pet Food: Virtual Piggy items will also be used in the full Pets system so those will remain bound for now. Hope that clears up any confusion you might have had and yay for not taking down the site!

Also, just for future reference, we will notify everyone before we take down any feature.

Raising the Marketplace Tax

Hi all,

With the recent influx of gold, there have been many concerned that inflation will rise to horrible levels and that we need to add more gold sinks on the site to combat this. Rest assured that gold sinks are on their way but before those come around, we wanted to examine a request that we've seen tossed around for a bit now, raising the marketplace tax from its current 2% level. To gauge overall reaction to this idea, we've set up a feedback thread for you to let us know how you feel. Please note that nothing has been decided yet and that the poll in the thread is not going to be the single metric we look at when deciding if it would be a good idea. What we really want to hear is your reasoning and feedback on why you're for or against such a change so please post and let us know!

Ragnarok Online II Partnership

We've partnered with Ragnarok Online II to provide some shiny bonuses for you in-game and a special item grant on Gaia once you reach level 15. You MUST register for an account through the URL provided in the announcement in order to receive the exclusive Gaia item grant. The item grant will be available through an exclusive promo code sent to your email. Just take that pin code and enter it on the Pin Redemption page.

UPDATE: Just for clarification once you reach level 15 you will be added to a list of users who reached level 15 during that week. Once a week a email will go out to those users who have reached level 15 in the previous week with the code to redeem your gold and bonus items for Gaia. Once per user per account. More Info Here!

Marketplace

  • - Fixed bug with Marketplace not showing average price or giving warning when selling high priced items (In patch rotation, will be out soon)

Offers Page

  • - Updated the page layout for partner offers


Upcoming

Site Centering Coming Soon!

Just wanted to let you know that, coming soon, we'll be making Gaia Online a centered site!

We thank everyone for the feedback they provided in Sisky's thread poll on this topic. While we understand that some people might not like this idea, centering the site opens up more opportunities with partners and events for us to take advantage of. According to the poll numbers, over half of you either want a centered site or are neutral about the issue. Some of the negativity came from concerns that centering forums and guilds would break post styles, so we are happy to tell you this update won't impact those areas at this time, only the main site design. In the future, these areas may also be centered, but until some of those concerns can be better addressed they will remain as they are.


Pre-roll Ads Coming to Flash Spaces on Gaia

We wanted to give you a heads up about a change coming shortly to Gaia's Flash spaces.

In the near future, we'll be adding pre-roll advertising videos to to the beginning almost all Gaia Flash spaces and games. What this means is that before a Gaia Flash game or Flash space launches, you'll be asked to watch a short video advertisement. zOMG! should not be affected by these changes.

Not to worry, we've partnered with a great company to help provide ads we believe will be relevant to most Gaians, and which will have appropriate content for our community. And hey, not only does watching the ads help Gaia Online earn a bit of profit to keep our beloved site running smoothly, but you might also learn about some fabulous new products through the ads! As always, if you should run across an inappropriate ad, you can report it by emailing us at reportads@gaiaonline.com and let us know! If you want more info on how to report bad ads, please check out the thread here!

Anyway, thanks for reading. We know that some Gaians are sensitive about advertisements online and we didn't want to surprise you with this change without giving you a heads up.


Removing HoC & MoGa

We want to thank everyone for their patience and time that have been put into these games. Unfortunately, we have made the decision to retire Heralds of Chaos and Monster Galaxy from the Gaia Online site. This was not an easy decision, and we know that many of you may be upset by this. We wanted to take a moment to thank all of the players who have supported these products and hope you all have had as much fun playing these unique and wonderful games on Gaia as we had making them for you all.

Note: This only applies to the Gaia Online versions of these games. The versions of Heralds of Chaos and Monster galaxy on Facebook will remain available for anyone to play.


Adding 3 new mini-games

We'll be adding three games to our mini-game lineup in the near future. These games will be designed for short and fast play and will use a brand new tournament-style system that we've been working on. Check out a sneak peek of these games below!

To address a few of the common questions: Yes there would be a divorce feature, Yes same-sex marriages would be allowed, Yes you'd be able to display the relationship in the forums, Yes we'd include a wedding-themed Flash space, No you couldn't share accounts/items, and Not Sure on different relationship types, multiple marriages, or age restrictions.

Well, it seems that Moira felt she was not getting enough attention and has decided everyone should have to stare into her eyes 25 times forever. Needless to say, this is a bug and the wrong item was being granted. We've changed the item being granted, removed all entries of the incorrect item from the Marketplace (If you had it listed, all of your listings will have been cancelled, sorry!), soulbound the item to prevent it from being spread, and have begun removing those items and granting the correct one to everyone who currently has it. Please sit tight and stay patient while we clean this up. I'll update as soon as we're finished!

We've ended new tournaments for now as we're attempting to address the issues with lag in the game. We'll update this once we have more information.

18 Late Night UpdateEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Late Night Update - Uncle Kenny Wed Sep 18, 2013 2:09 am

Late Night Update

As you may have noticed, there are still no tournaments available to play in SmashBlox. Unfortunately, we haven't found an efficient solution to fix the issue of lag in the game despite throwing ourselves at it until about 9 tonight. We'll start again bright and early tomorrow to get things hammered out to have the game playable again as soon as possible. Sorry for all the issues with this launch!

In unrelated news, we've removed the PowerUser Menu lab option and turned on all available menu navigation options for all users. Enjoy!

Lastly, there were complications with removing HoC from the site today that caused the Facebook version of the game to also go down. We have fixed this bug and the game should be available on Facebook again now, sorry for any inconvenience. Now that the game is down on the site, we plan to address the issues of converting Chaos Cash to Gaia Cash and granting the achievements out. Once we have an update on those, we'll let you know, but rest assured that we are still planning on doing this.

SmashBlox Woes

Yeah, the cash tournaments are down again. We've discovered an exploit in the game that allows users to get scores that were far higher than what they should be able to get. Until we fix this exploit, we've disabled the cash tournaments since it presents an unfair advantage for the users who know of the exploit. We will have this fixed and the cash tournaments back up ASAP so sit tight and we'll update you once we're back up again. In the meantime, feel free to play the free tournament! Sorry for all the trouble this has caused!

SmashBlox Lives Again!

Sorry for the extended downtime again but we've put the game back up in its full capacity with all tournament levels available. We've put in quite a few patches that should fix issues with levels not loading, scores not adding up correctly, scores saving the wrong value, games quitting in the middle of the level with moves and time remaining, and especially with the excess lag between each move. If you continue to encounter issues, please report them in Codemonkey's thread here.

For those concerned about how the downtime will affect the ongoing giveaway with the game, we're aware of the issues it presents and will make a decision on it on Monday.

It seems that there are still a few issues left where shops and the new offer system aren't getting along. We believe we've isolated the cause and issue to IE browsers but are still researching to make sure this is accurate. If you are affected by these issues (unable to buy an item, unable to see any items in a shop, unable to load shops, etc), please post in this thread with all of the information mentioned in the first post. The more information we get, the quicker we'll be able to find the problem and get it fixed.

22 Halloween Bug FixesEdit

Halloween Bug Fixes

I've buffed the hit rates for all classes so all attacks should now be 10-20% more likely to hit, and yeah, this is effective immediately. I've seen a lot of complaints that the hit rates were too low so I'm hoping this helps with that. Please keep in mind though, the rate is based on your class, the class of your target, your level, and your target's level. If you go and pick a fight with someone 5 levels higher than you, you're unlikely to hit them. If you attack someone of the same class, you're pretty much fighting yourself so it could go either way. Each class has its strengths and weaknesses so figure out who you work best against and look for them.

Health and energy regeneration weren't working correctly unless your stats were being checked regularly. I've fixed this so going forward it should work as intended, a set amount to health and energy after a set amount of time (I'm still tweaking the rates and amounts to best fit). As a side effect of this, anyone who had less than max health/energy before the fix should be bumped up to max now, enjoy!

22 Halloween Bug Fix UpdateEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Halloween Bug Fix Update - Uncle Kenny Tue Oct 22, 2013 8:42 pm

Halloween Bug Fix Update

Greater than, less than, equal to, scaling, balancing, and calculation. These are the things that plagued me with attacking hit rates. My initial stab at it skewed favor toward those with high luck, and my fix skewed it toward those with low luck. I've now gone back to the drawing board and designed a new formula to calculate hit percentage, counter attack rate, critical hits, and super effective heals. It's lean, mean, and even better than before because it actually works. Sorry for all the issues that this has caused but I'm 99.9% confident this will now fix that.

Virtual Piggy Announcement Revision

The recent Virtual Piggy announcement about the event mentioned that the Virtual Piggy Luck Potions helped by leveling you up. This is actually not accurate. The Virtual Piggy Luck Potions do not affect your level at all. The only thing that they do actually affect is your Luck stat and they only increase it by 1 point. Sorry for the confusion about this, the announcement has been revised to reflect the correct functionality.

22 Halloween Bug Fix Update 2Edit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Halloween Bug Fix Update 2 - Uncle Kenny Tue Oct 22, 2013 10:49 pm

Halloween Bug Fix Update 2

So I managed to still not get it right and attacks were going through unchecked for the last hour or so. I've fixed this now too so all the dodging, countering, critical hit goodness should be back now. Sorry about that.

I've also removed the Event Menu buttons from below avatars if that user has recently died, thereby not allowing them to be attacked, and you're not on their team. I hope this helps cut down on some of the unnecessary page reloads when trying to find someone to attack!

Additionally, any stats you level up in the Halloween 2K13 event will carry forward with you to the next round of battling! Having higher stats will definitely give you an advantage in your future battles in terms of staying power, attack power, etc. so keep on battling your way up the ranks!

Finally, we have plans to introduce a variety of rewards and treats for reaching new levels in battle during future events. In fact, there may even be some secret rewards still hidden in this Halloween 2K13 event! You'll just have to keep playing and see what you can find!

24 Battle Skills Overhaul - Nerfs & BuffsEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Battle Skills Overhaul - Nerfs & Buffs - Uncle Kenny Thu Oct 24, 2013 8:01 pm


Battle Skills Overhaul - Nerfs & Buffs

By this point you've probably noticed that your skills now have names and that they don't do the same amount of damage/cost as much as before. Well, you aren't seeing things. I've just pushed an update for the Battle system which should update several things but most importantly it addresses the issues with some classes being super powerful and some being super weak. Overall, all the skills for each class should be more balanced with the class' base stats and with the other classes and skills as well. Yes, this does mean some of you are going to be doing less damage than before, but it also means others will be doing more damage than they were before. The energy costs have been updated to be more in line with the damage being dealt with the attacks as well. I'm going to keep an eye on how this new breakdown works out and will continue to adjust as needed but I hope this big change will have positive impacts for everyone overall.

I've also up'd the amount of exp you get for all of the actions you make. Attacking has been increased from 2 to 3, healing from 1 to 2, and kills from 5 to 10. There's also a bonus exp boost if you manage to kill someone higher than your level so watch for that too.

Lastly, as part of the skill overhaul, all classes should have at least one attack which has the capability of getting a Critical Hit for enough damage to KO an opponent of the right level and class. I won't tell you which classes are best against another but ask your friends or other players and I'm sure you can find the answer quickly.

BRAAAAAAAIIIIIIIINNNNNSSSS

Tired of being fully in control of your actions? Feel like you're missing something in your life? Think that you would look fabulous with an infected, green bunny leeching your life force from your head? Well then, you're in luck! Grombies are back and ready to infect everyone alllll over again. You can get the third stage of infection for only 30 wing stickers, while the 4th and 5th stages will cost you 40 and 50 wing stickers respectively.

These skins will be available even after the event, but why wait until later? Head on over to The Treehouse and pick up your very own Grombie skin today! All the cool kids are doing it.

EDIT: So, apparently we don't have functionality in to preview consumable skin potions. Whoops! This is out of the scope of the project currently but I've gone ahead and taken screenshots for male and female avis with each of the stages in case you want to know what it looks like.

25 Battle System - Class ChangingEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Battle System - Class Changing - Uncle Kenny Fri Oct 25, 2013 6:11 pm

Battle System - Class Changing

Potions to change your class are now available for 99GC in the Cash Shop. So as to avoid any confusion or misinformation about what these do, I figured I'd clarify it all here before the information starts to spread.

When you use the potion, your class is changed to the one you selected and your stats adjust according to the stats of the class you change to. For example, if you are a Level 7 Knight and you decide to change to a Rogue, you will see your health, energy, melee, magic, and luck adjust according to what you would be if you had been a Level 7 Rogue already. Any additional stat boosts you added, such as Virtual Piggy Luck Potions, will be applied as well. You should have no actual loss of stats or progress, you'll just become the equivalent level of the class you change to.

Furthermore, the achievement for joining each class WILL be granted for switching to them in this manner. There obviously may be some lag due to the overall lag of achievements during events but it will grant so you should receive it once the lag stops hating.

I think this covers most questions about it but I'll be watching the forums to clarify or fix any other issues or misunderstandings related to this.

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Battle System Update! - Uncle Kenny Tue Oct 29, 2013 7:41 pm

Battle System Update!

In continued efforts to refine and improve the overall experience for Battle/Halloween, we’ve adjusted the energy regeneration rates for everyone so it should take somewhat less time to recover your energy and get back into the fray. We’ll continue adjusting as needed but in the meantime, there are energy potions for gold and for cash in Barton Boutique and the Cash Shop that you can pick up to speed up your recovery if the rate is still too slow for you.

Also, if you’re still working on leveling up and want to get your achievement at level 10 before the event ends, I hope you’ll stop by this weekend to enjoy a TRIPLE EXP whirlwind of attacks and heals. That’s right, starting Friday at 5:00pm PDT you’ll earn 3 times the experience for attacks, heals, and kills. The bonus EXP will end when the event ends on Monday though so, if you want in on it, you better get it while you can!

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Halloween Triple EXP Weekend! - Uncle Kenny Fri Nov 01, 2013 8:00 pm

Halloween Triple EXP Weekend!

The flood gates of experience have been opened wide and the countdown to the end of the event has begun! Hop into the Halloween event forum now and battle with friends and against foes while earning triple the experience you normally would. That's right, until the event ends, you'll receive 9 points for every attack you make, 6 points for every heal, and a whopping 30 points if you manage to score a kill against any opponent. As mentioned, this is only valid until the event ends on Monday, November 4th, at 11:59:59PM PST. At that point, the Battle system and the event itself will turn off, so you better get in there and start playing now!

Please note that the power-ups and potions available now will not be usable after the event ends, with the exception of the Virtual Piggy Luck Charms and Health Potions. While we will likely have new power-ups/potions in the future, they will not be the same items so be sure to use up any you have before the event ends! If, for some reason, you still have them after the event, you're not completely out of luck. We will put a gold sellback on the items so you can get a little something back in exchange for them.

Well, what are you waiting for? Head onto the battlefield and start gaining those sweet, sweet experience points.

05 Halloween Has Ended!Edit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Halloween Has Ended! - Uncle Kenny Tue Nov 05, 2013 7:28 pm

Halloween Has Ended!

The dust has settled and our heroic NPCs are nowhere to be seen! Before the bomb went off, Easter Bunny's team was overpowering Jack's team so, following the standard rules of Holiday God PvP Battles, the victory must be awarded to Easter Bunny and his team. As a result, the item everyone receives for participating in the event will be decidedly Easter Bunny themed. We're in the process of running a script to grant all participants this new item, as well as, retroactively granting any items or achievements that anyone missed. All of these will just show up in your account once the script gets to you and we'll update this once the script actually finishes running (it will take awhile). it's done!

For those of you saddened by the removal of Switchem, fear not! Due to the positive reaction to the game, we'll be bringing it back again for future events/occasions, likely with new artwork and items. Keep your eyes peeled for this, we're far from done with it.

As mentioned previously, we'll also be bringing the Battle system back! Obviously, it won't be included in every single event but we plan to bring it back when it makes sense to include it. All of your stats and progress will carry over to the future instances of the system so don't worry if you weren't quite able to reach level 10 this time around.

In case you haven't seen it yet, check out the shocking end to this year's Halloween event right here. Did Jack and Easter Bunny survive the blast? Find out in the next installment of A Bunny's Lament coming this winter right here on Gaia Online.

For those who like to see the big numbers, we've included a few choice bits of info below for you to chew on.

Bidding on the valuable 2003 items in Flynn's Plunder will be ending this Sunday, the 10th. If you want your chance to grab an old, rare item then you better start warming up your bidding finger because things will likely get much faster as the end date draws ever closer. Head on over to Flynn’s store and start practicing today!

Just so you all know, the Flynn's Plunder update with 2004 items will go up sometime after next Monday as I will be unavailable to update it until then. This means there will be a short period where there aren't any items listed again. I'll make another update once the items are available for bidding.

Good luck and happy bidding!

Did you know that today is World Kindness Day? Many countries around the world use today to celebrate kindness - either being kind to others, or celebrating people who have been kind to you.

We think kindness is a fantastic thing to celebrate! Too often in this world there is negativity and unkindness. We think a community contest and hang out thread to share kindness is just what we need!

Please feel free to join in the positivity and fun and share happy thoughts of gratitude with your fellow Gaians in our fun Kindness contest thread!

14 Bug Fixes/Changes 11/14/13Edit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Bug Fixes/Changes 11/14/13 - Uncle Kenny Thu Nov 14, 2013 7:29 pm

Bug Fixes/Changes 11/14/13

We've just pushed a handful of changes to some areas of the site, as well as, beefed up our account security.

First off, we've updated the Cash Shop so that items appear in the correct order of when they were created, making it easier to find the newest items fast (Hint: Use the default setting and look at the first item in the first row).

Next, we've updated the left-aligned site header so that it can support larger widths like those that the centered site header uses. This allows the left-aligned header to use the newer CI/event banners that utilize the larger widths. If you cannot see the headers or have noticed images missing around the site, it's likely because you have AdBlocked one of our CDN's image hosting directories (/mfs/index/adminupload/). If you want to see the images, you'll need to allow images from that directory to be served to your browser.

Lastly, we've fixed a major security hole with our inactive login blocks. As it was, the feature prevented an account from being logged into if it was locked out only the first time it was attempted. Any subsequent attempt at logging into the account would allow access so long as the password was correct, thereby bypassing the locked out check. This has been fixed and is retroactive which means any account, that was flagged for being locked out while this glitch was active, will now be locked out and will need to follow the proper steps to have the account reactivated (See below). Additionally, we have seen a recent spike in old accounts being logged into by less than reputable individuals so we are lowering the inactive account threshold from 5 years to 2 years in order to better protect these accounts. Since this feature was put in place almost a year ago, we feel that enough time has passed to allow for regularly used accounts to be logged into and updated so as to avoid being locked out by this. Overall, we believe that this will keep Gaia accounts more secure from unapproved access and help prevent more hacks from occcuring. We're actively monitoring this and will adjust any details as needed.

If you need help reactiving an account, just follow the steps below:

1. Copy the following link and paste it into notepad or another word doc for the time being. In other words, don't erase it!: https://www.gaiaonline.com/supportal/login/?task=ticket

2. In order to file a ticket, you'll need to do so from a secondary account. You may use an existing account you own, or may create a new Gaia account to file the ticket. Once you are on your secondary account, paste the link you previously copied into your browser to open a ticket.

3. Once on the ticket page, choose the following options from the drop-down menus:

  • - For Subject, choose General Account Inquiry
  • - For Topics, choose 6 Month Reactivation
  • - Fill out ALL the form fields in the ticket then click "Finish" to submit your ticket. Once it comes up in our queue, a customer service representative will process your ticket and help you get your account reinstated!

22 Hey Gaians!Edit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Hey Gaians! - reapersun Fri Nov 22, 2013 7:31 pm

Hey Gaians!

Some of you may already know that tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of the classic scifi show, Doctor Who! It first aired in 1963, and is the longest running scifi series in the world. Wow!

To celebrate this, we thought about making an item, but then decided, eh, it won't hurt if we ignore this one. Take the day off. Eat some cake instead. Maybe next time!

I guess there's a slim chance not making a free item could possibly lead to some kind of horrible catastrophe that would require maybe like some kind of time traveler to come back and plant a secret message to avert it. But yeah, it's pretty slim. Hardly any chance.

Black King's Advance


Hello, Gaians. For those of you who don't know me, allow me to make some quick introductions: I am the Black King, champion of this great realm. Normally I would not waste my time addressing the rabble, but I come before you today to bring to light a grievous offense the White King has committed against my kingdom. My family has possessed a precious gem, the Deep Blue, as part of our royal regalia for centuries. In fact, my queen is wearing it now as the most splendid jewel in her crown. However, it appears that the White King had commissioned a group of dirty thieves to smuggle it away to his castle. Perhaps the White King didn't think I would notice? How utterly pathetic. My guards have apprehended these would-be conspirators and they now await trial in the dungeon, where such pitiful rogues belong.

Did you take me for a fool, White King? Well, now everyone can see who the true fool really is.

White Queen's Counter


My dear Gaians, it is under most distressing circumstances that I find myself before you today. I am the White Queen, and I am here to address the terrible slander the Black King has committed against my husband. The White King would never seek to steal any gems from the Black Queen, as it is simply not in his nature to stoop to such desperate measures. We possess our own set of royal regalia that would no doubt put the Black Kingdom's to absolute shame. Still, I find it hardly surprising that the Black Queen would make such accusations. Her histrionics are well-known across our kingdom, and it appears that my poor envoys -- not thieves, mind you -- must suffer for her selfish cruelty. The White King and I demand the immediate release of our diplomats, and a personal apology from the Black King and Black Queen for spreading such hearsay.

Your move, Black King.

December Advance Chance Clarification

Hey everyone!

We're glad to hear you're having fun with the new CI releases, but we have noticed that some of you seem a bit confused about how this CI works. Let us clarify!

We wanted to try a fun, new approach to the CI release this month since it is the last CI of the year, and hey, we like having fun and know you do too!

Basically, this is an evolving CI which was split up into three parts so a story could be made of opponents going back and forth. We also thought you'd like the chance to get a crack at entirely new items.

At any rate, both the Dark and Light Advance Chance bundles are open now and today will be the conclusion of the story which will function like a normal CI including even MORE new items.

Hope this helps!
