06 New Profile/Signature ReportingEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices New Profile/Signature Reporting - Uncle Kenny Mon Jan 06, 2014 7:32 pm

New Profile/Signature Reporting

We've just rolled out some shiny new changes to make reporting profile and signature content easier. To report rule-breaking content in one of these areas going forward, all you need to do is go to the user's profile and click the "Report this Profile" link in the top-right corner of the header. This will take you to a report form where you can select the specific reason you're reporting the content, which section has rule-breaking content, and provide any other details to help the Moderator who ends up handling the report. For example, to report someone's signature for having sexually explicit content in it, you would just select "Sexually Explicit Material" for the reason, "Signature" for the section, and include any other helpful details. Existing signature/profile reports in other queues will still be handled in the order they were filed but please use this method of reporting to file any future reports for offending profile/signature content.

The addition of this report link in the profile header has led us to strictly enforce the placement of the header in user profiles. You may no longer alter the display/visibility, location, height, width, or font size of the header, logo, or any text in it. While this has always been the rule with profiles, it wasn't actually enforced from a programmatic side like it is now. This decision was made so as to ensure that the report link is always visible and available to users needing to use it. Sorry for any inconvenience this causes.

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Extreme Couponing - Gaia Edition - Uncle Kenny Sun Jan 12, 2014 3:02 am

Extreme Couponing - Gaia Edition

Earlier tonight there was a glitch with the coupon system that resulted in many of you receiving 10 coupons out of the blue. This was not intentional and the issue has since been fixed so no one else should receive the glitched 10 PMs anymore. This was our bad so we're not going to be removing them this time around and anyone who did receive them is free to use them as they like. I've included the details for the coupons below if you are unsure of their specifics.

  • Coupons are good for 10% off of the regular price of GCash when buying via PayPal or Credit/Debit card ONLY
  • Coupons cannot be combined
  • Coupons are non-transferable. Any coupon sent to your account is tied specifically to your account so no one else can use it.
  • Coupons valid through 01-14-2014 21:00 PST

Beginning some site maintenance this evening around 9pm PT

Hey Gaians!

Sorry for the late notice, but we wanted to give you a heads-up on some ongoing maintenance we'll be doing for Gaia. Starting at about 9:00pm PT this evening, we're going to be working on some database fixes, and we wanted you to be aware of this as it may impact your ability to post/reply in Gaia forums, send/receive private messages, or post in Guilds. We don't anticipate this maintenance will impact other site features or areas, but it is possible.

We expect the maintenance to last for a couple of days and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding while we work to make sure everything is running smoothly! If we should need to extend the maintenance time past a couple of days, we'll make another staff alert.

Just keeping you in the loop!

Just letting you know that today (January 29th) at around 10 am PST we'll need to perform some unexpected maintenance. You know, fiddling with cables, pressing buttons and whatnot - all sorts of fun equipment checks! We don't anticipate this will affect anyone's Gaia experience, but you never know - it might! If you experience delays or errors posting, sending pm's, posting in guilds during this period of time, this would be why! We apologize for the last minute notice, but sometimes things just sneak up unexpectedly!

Have you checked out the new "Hannibal" hot topic yet? The new season of the show starts tonight, so if you are a fan, you'll want to stop by and chat with fellow fans!

Also, it appears that Carl has made a thread to, erm, celebrate the show? I suspect this is due to his Halloween costume (if indeed that *was* a costume.. @__@) Anyway, he seems to be giving something away. Might want to check out his thread here: Carl's Thread - Enter carefully!

As always with Carl, we recommend slowly approaching him without making eye contact, grabbing your free treat, then backing away slowly. Very, very slowly...

Hey Gaians!

With Spring fast approaching, we've been noticing that a lot more animal avatars are popping up about the site. How fabulous! Spring certainly is the time when many animals venture out and about after emerging from their wintry lairs!

To celebrate this abundance of animals, we're having a little contest in the PAWS forum! Just equip an animal avatar base, print it out and take a pic or draw the avatar and take a pic, and you could win a great prize! And, as a bonus, if your entry wins and you have the Akiva's Dexterity animal base item from the March 2014 MC equipped on your avatar in your winning entry, you'll score bonus prize gold - how fab!

Check out the contest by equipping your animal avatar base and heading over to the contest thread!

Later gators! (Or cats, bears, wolves, or whatever other animal you might be!)

P.S. - You have to have an animal avatar base equipped to get into the PAWS forum, so put that on before trying to enter!

Hey everyone!

Thanks so much for being patient while we sorted out some pesky issues - gah! Seems like when we were setting up the circus some of the circus clowns escaped and started to run amok -eek! Not to worry - we believe we've gotten them all back in their tiny cars, and Gaia should be working normally again. We're so very sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

And speaking of the circus being in town, we're sure you've noticed that Loyal's Bazaar is now open - we hope you are enjoying it! I wanted people to be aware that a fair number of you who were eligible to join the Bazaar did not receive your invite due to the recent pesky glitches.

To find out if you are actually eligible to access Loyal's Bazaar, take the following steps:

  • 1) Log out of your Gaia Online account
  • 2) Login to your Gaia Online account again
  • 3) Go to the shop landing page here: http://www.gaiaonline.com/loyalsbazaar/ which will show you your current status for eligibility in a counter near the bottom of the page!

In most cases, eligible people who were experiencing this glitch will have the issue resolved simply by logging out then logging in again.

Hope this is helpful - be well!

Polls being restored

I'm restoring the poll options text to a backup. It's not going very quickly, but hopefully will be done in the next 24 hours. We could do it faster, but we would lose all of the votes on all polls that have been running since the backup snapshot was taken. It's possible that some poll options text will be lost (or permanently in Swedish) and I'm very sorry for that. This should be limited to polls that were created in less than a 4 hour period before the script went rogue and demanded all poll options be written in Swedish.

We are in the process of fixing old content (Forum posts, Guild posts, PMs, Arena comments, Aquarium comments, etc) on Gaia so that content displays correctly. This fixing process will convert data so characters (think "letters", as in words, and grammar marks) display as intended and not displayed as an empty box or a question mark. This conversion script had a glitch that affected the poll options text. We will work hard to make sure that nothing similar affects any other content that gets converted.

Letting everyone know the bug with the Sentai achievement not granting when you get switched to that team has been fixed. There is a known bug with the Hero achievement where it may grant prematurely, this bug will be left as is as this event is just meant to be silly fun, if you get it early ...Good!

For clarity, you should get one for either joining a team or for getting switched to a team. Two ways to get the same achievement!. Minus the aforementioned bug, the Hero achievement grants after you convert 25 people total no matter what team you were on. Final note, it may take up to an hour for the achievement to actually get granted to you once you have met the right conditions.

The event will be turned off June 1st at midnight PDT. Event grants will take place that week for the respective teams.

Have fun!.

Got an EI story idea? Share it with us!

Hello, my little chums of scientific curiosity! As you all know I am Dr. Singh, head of the Evolving Item Labs, and discoverer of all the amazing EIs we've had in the past. But since I'm on the hunt for a new Lab Assistant I'm dying to hear all your incredible ideas for future Evolving Items! Will it be a tragic love story like the tale of Sainte Ciel and Rosamund? A gory epic of revenge like Antipathy? Or perhaps you enjoy the fashion-oriented sweetness of Pandaista? Then make sure you visit the link below to post your fabulous ideas!

After all, you never know who might be reading them... If someone likes your idea, they might drop by and give you a gift! We look forward to reading over all your fascinating designs, Gaians! For SCIENCE!

Post Your Ideas!

20 Admin PM ReportsEdit

Admin PM Reports

Hey all,

We have been receiving a lot of reports against Admin for the Gaia Cash PMs that have been sent out. We certainly understand users want to provide their feedback about the PMs, however, reporting the PM is not the proper way to do it. If you wish to leave your feedback about the PMs, please post your feedback in this thread. Please do not report the PMs as it does clog up the report system. If this happens, we cannot get to your other reports which is a bad experience for everyone. Going forward we will have to close out any reports filed against Admin for these PMs. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
