Gaia Anniversary 2012


[NPC] admin: AnnouncementEdit

  • Feb 17 Happy Anniversary from Gaia Online! [1]

Can you believe Gaia's been around for nine years? It's incredible that this company-- founded in a dirt-floored shack by a gaggle of filthy children-- has grown into the worldwide anime hat phenomenon it is today. We owe it all to the incredible community that's guided our progress, encouraged our madness and funded our art for nearly a decade.

The Gaia team has set up a little thread to thank you all for supporting us. As a small token of our appreciation, we're also giving away a free anniversary item-- and if you look closely at the thread, you may even find a little something extra hidden among our posts.

Gaia's on it's 9th year! Time flies when you're having fun, and in the blink of an eye we're on our 9th year. Thank you everyone for supporting us and making Gaia the fun site that it is! You breathe life into the site and we're happy that you make our effort worthwhile.

Last year we had a greAt time with many great features as well as one of the best Halloween events to date, and for the coming year we'll continue to focus on core features to make Gaia a better place for hanging out and having fun.
