14 CI ChangesEdit

CI Changes

Hey Gaians,

We've made an adjustment to how opening Chance Items work in order. After opening a Chance Item there will be a 4 second delay before opening the next one. This is to help mitigate any potential server issues from opening up too many CIs at once. We're interested in hearing your feedback about this and will be browsing threads gathering it up.

Additionally, within the Loyal’s Fish Bundle Pack is the item, Aquarium Mimi Kitty. We've reduced the sell back on that item to prevent any abuse due to the previously high sell back on Mimi Kitty. If you have a lot of Loyal’s Fish Bundle Packs that you bought for the hope of getting an Aquarium Mimi Kitty and no longer want them, then please file a ticket at our Help Center before July 31, 2017 at 11:59pm PDT and we will be able to remove the items and credit your Gaia Gold back.

25Notice involving image hosting Edit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Notice involving image hosting - Xya Tue Jul 25, 2017 4:49 pm

Notice involving image hosting

Hello, Gaians!

We have posted announcements Minishops forums with the message below. Just in case you do not frequent these forums, but sell/buy art, we want to pass this along to you! This applies to all art trades including those outside the Minishops forums.

Thank you, and happy summer!

- - - - -

Due to unfortunate circumstances beyond our members’ and our (Gaia’s) control, Photobucket is not any longer a reliable image host for large-scale art shops due to limiting allowed bandwidth. This means that they are finicky about 3rd party linking, where the art is inaccessible to those who are not logged into the hosting Photobucket account.

Sadly, this has led to circumstances where either:

  • 1) The buyer is unable to access their finished art, or;
  • 2) The seller does not have sufficient proof that the art purchased has been appropriately delivered to the buyer.


All of this means that the potential for unintentional scamming on either end is very high.

We do not expect our members to pay Photobucket to remedy this situation. However, we do expect that this be taken care of so that scamming situations do not occur as a result. We have recently whitelisted Imgur, and DeviantArt/other art gallery sites are great tools for artists to host their work for long periods of time. Google Docs is another alternative in order to deliver art.


  • NOTE FOR THE SHOPS AND SELLERS:

We are extending a more than a month period for all active artists affected by Photobucket's new bandwidth limit to rehost their images on another image hosting service, have their goods delivered to the buyer in another manner, or have their Photobucket service functional. Reports filed involving non-delivery of art will be held until August 31st, 2017 @ 11:59:59 PM so everyone has the opportunity to fix the situation.

Within this time period, we expect artists to refund purchases or be ready to present their art. Otherwise, the Moderation Team will be unable to rule on behalf of the shop/seller in reported cases where Photobucket is the sole reason for lack of evidence. We also may hold artists liable for producing their goods in alternative ways, and if they are unable to, for refunding the purchase of the art back to the buyer.

Sellers need to host the art for a reasonable amount of time so the buyer has the opportunity to save/rehost the art themselves. It's highly recommend that you take a couple opportunities to notify buyers that their art needs to be saved/rehosted before taking it down, which we recommend hanging onto evidence that you have done so.


  • NOTE FOR THE BUYER:

Art buyers should be saving the art to their computer or rehosting their art that they receive immediately instead of relying on the artist to host the image indefinitely.

Once art is successfully produced, if a host or the artist takes down the image for any reason, the artist may not be liable if the buyer can no longer access the art. It is not the artist's responsibility to host the art for an extended amount of time, but they do have a a responsibility to host/provide access to the image for a reasonable amount of time in order for it to be saved and used by the buyer.


The above may not affect some shops! Check with the shop/seller to see if they will indefinitely host the art, or if they have a time limit of hosting the art for you. We recommend having this clarified in your shop's posts so there is not any confusion on who is responsible for this.

I hope this clarifies Gaia's position on such matters. Please use the allotted time to rehost, refund, or otherwise deliver any art that has been affected by Photobucket's new policies.

26 In this farewell...Edit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices In this farewell... - Zero Omega Wed Jul 26, 2017 8:15 pm

In this farewell...

It starts with one... It's so unreal. Numb...
In the end... there is a new divide.
Crawling... from the castle of glass.
One step closer to where I belong.
I don't like my mind right now... Why is everything so heavy?
It's cool to be a part of recovery. This is just who I am...
I don't go out and pick fights, I don't drink. I choose to be sober now.
I always wanted to be a rock star. That was my childhood dream.
As an artist, I want a reaction...


There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface.
I've become so numb, become so tired.
I don't know what's worth fighting for, tell me what I've gotta do.
I can't feel the way I did before, don't turn your back on me.
I may end up failing too...
I don't like to hold back, because that's how you hurt yourself.
This is a business of love and labor, if fans come up to me, I talk to them.
The fans are the biggest reason we do what we do.
Let's all choose to be a part of the cure.


The Requiem. The Radiance. Wisdom, Justice, and Love. What we don't know is what we pretend to be. Even in my remains- skin to bone- there is a homecoming from the roads less traveled.

You have inspired me in many ways you could never have known. Your talent was pure and unrivaled. You helped me understand that.


Go, you are not unknown. You are not alone. I'll be gone, but it was not all for nothing. One more 'light' 'forevermore'.

Hey Gaians,

We made a switch to how Angel Subscribers will receive their free Angel Item for the month. When you're subscription renews for the month you will receive a Sealed Angel Item. If you open the box, then you will contain the Angel Item for the current month. For example, if you get your box in August, open it in August, you'll receive the August item. However, if you open the box in September, you'll get September's item instead of August. You can decide whether you want to open it for the month or not!

If you did not open your Sealed Angel Item in July and want to switch your August item for July, then here's how to do it:

  • Open your Sealed Angel Item.
  • Claim the Magnificent Yin from the Sealed Angel Item
  • Visit the Angel Item Swap Tool
  • Click "SWAP ANGEL ITEM!" to do the swap.
  • You're all done!


Help! I'm getting sent to the Help Center instead of the Angel Item Swap Tool page! Please go ahead and clear your browser's cache. If you're not sure how to do that, please see this guide.

Dreadful Words!: A BAD Poetry Contest...

Hello Gaians! I just realized that the 18th was Bad Poetry Day. Oh bad poetry - unlike amazing poetry, bad poetry can move us in ways the poet possibly didn't expect. Like anger, annoyance, or if it's a REALLY cheesy poem, to fits of laughter. And who doesn't love a good laugh?

Anyway, to celebrate the pure art that IS bad poetry, I'm hosting a bad poetry contest! If your deliciously dreadful entry wins, you'll score a fab prize pack to help your avatar capture the feel of a bad poet.

Head on over to the official contest thread and get your poet-ing on! We look, uhhh, forward to all the tacktacular entries?!

25 Sweet Stuff Tier IssuesEdit

  • Icon staff Staff Notices Sweet Stuff Tier Issues - Takuya Kanbara Fri Aug 25, 2017 5:03 pm

Sweet Stuff Tier Issues

Hello everyone! We're encountering some issues with the Sweet Stuff Tier currently and wanted to touch base with you all with regard to what's going on. A few things are not behaving as intended currently, but as we want the tier to be available to you, we wanted to be transparent about what's going on that's not behaving as intended at this moment.

- Currently, when Angel Subscribers purchase Gaia Cash, the bonus Gaia Cash that you get with your purchase is being included in the fund level. This is unintentional behavior, as it should be funding based on the base amount of Gaia Cash you purchase. However, given it's beneficial to all of you for it to be doing this, we're opting to leave it be for now until our developers have time to have a closer look at it.

- Similarly, regular bonus Gaia Cash sales will tack on the bonus to your fund level, instead of the base price. While we intend for this to be fixed in the future, it will be to all of your benefit right now especially at this very moment

- When you subscribe or re-subscribe, the amount you spend on that is not being reflected in the tier fund. If you purchase or are charged for a subscription while the tier is active and this would get you to one of the tier levels, please file a ticket at the Help Center and we'll get you your tier rewards!

So there's a new Star Oddities circus in town? Curious...

Oh hello Gaians...

I noticed something curious today. A new circus is in town. Calls itself Star Oddities. Curious. Always intrigued by fellow circus folk and their whimsical shenanigans. I stopped by to see what's going on, and I must say, its got drama, circus actors and medical supplies. This got me thinking - I wonder what would happen if one tried to dress up as both a medical AND circus professional at the same time... Let's see shall we?

I'm going to host a contest, an avatar contest - dress your avatar up in a combination of themes: Medical professional and circus star, and the most impressive hybrids could win an amazing prize pack.

We've just made a change to the leaderboard that shows up inside each mini game to only show high scores collected in the past three hours. This way more of you will have a chance of getting on the leaderboard and getting the achievement.

On top of that, each user's name will show up only ONCE per leaderboard. So for the very talented individuals (or the ones botting, which we'll ban soon), you will no longer see your streak of high scores in the leaderboard, but we do keep track of all your scores in the system.

Golden Catch Update

Hello everyone! To accommodate the transition from gold to platinum, as well as help remove more excess currency from the system, we’ve slightly increased the price per spin to play Golden Catch. The reasoning behind this is that it was possible to play Golden Catch after a few minutes of browsing the site, and we didn’t want items available for gold/platinum to feel undervalued compared to the other items we release. The good news is that new items are now available in Golden Catch for you all, and we’ll be announcing that shortly!

Limited Quantity Item Conditions Rule Change

Good morning Gaians!

First of all, thank you so much for all of the feedback left in LQI Conditions Feedback Thread. We've read through every post and wanted to share our findings.

There were very different perspectives on feedback, some wanted LQI length to be longer, some didn’t want items to be limited to begin with, and while we want to meet a middle ground that suits both sides of things, we feel that our current policy doesn’t quite fulfill either side’s wants/needs, and more importantly that it causes confusion within the community, because some items become ineligible substantially longer than others.

While we don’t intend to discontinue LQIs for the time being, we have decided to revert the rule to how it was previously, where each LQI is ineligible for re-release for exactly 6 months from its release date. This change will apply retroactively for the months that we tried out the alternate method, as that way there is consistency across the board.

Thank you all for understanding, and we hope you have a wonderful weekend.
