Gaia Onliners here? (in Off-topic)

QBPixel Sage August 12 2008 11:54 PM EDT

Hey people. Just wondering if there are any Gaia Online people here. I finally got my account back after a year of it being hacked, so I'm super happy =). And apparently some of my items have skyrocketed in price!

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] August 12 2008 11:54 PM EDT

OB and I both have active accounts there.

My main is Dark Hakai ^_^

QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 12:09 AM EDT

Hakai, your inbox on gaia is now officially +1 spam.


QBOddBird August 13 2008 12:10 AM EDT

Mine is Real Men Fish Naked (named for my HERO Avoid) at the moment; it is probably soon to change back to OddBird.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] August 13 2008 12:13 AM EDT

I am stealing your Steel Plated Ninja headband, just so you know.

*massive amounts of envy mixed with thoughts of sabotage*


QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 12:22 AM EDT

Haha, I just had someone ask me if they could buy it from me =P. I'm selling my Winged Anklets right now, hopefully to grab some other items to invest in.

Hakai [Aye Phelta Thi] August 13 2008 12:23 AM EDT

*hate* *sob*


QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 12:48 AM EDT

You know how the marketplace shows the average price people buy items for? It could be possible to manipulate the market a little... set an item for a slightly higher price than average, and sell back and forth between mule accounts to bump up the average =)

INDColtsFan18 August 13 2008 1:05 AM EDT

you clever trickster you.

QBOddBird August 13 2008 1:07 AM EDT

Last I talked with Sagger, he wasn't particularly fond of the idea of anyone manipulating the marketplace.

...then again, they can't catch everyone. At your own risk! ;)

I agree, however, that the 'Average Price' stat is flawed. Those who undercut to sell their items more quickly tend to lower it faster than those who sell for higher.

QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 1:10 AM EDT

Who is this Sagger?

And people here should join and chill with us =)

QBOddBird August 13 2008 1:21 AM EDT

Sagger's the economics-focused developer.

QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 1:22 AM EDT

Haha. Well, it's too much work anyways. But it's an interesting thought. I'm sure many people have done it before.

QBOddBird August 13 2008 1:24 AM EDT

Quite an interesting thought if you have the cash to shift around/lose :)

I, however, am not that wealthy.

Unlike you, Mr. Sage, who seem to have fallen into the hands of Lady Luck..*sigh*

lol, i went to register and my username and email was taken, didn't know i already made an account, haha. My Gaia is just about naked with boxers on with 270 Gold and 25 Cash (Do not know the worth of these, lol)

QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 1:31 AM EDT

Haha. What's your username man?

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] August 13 2008 1:42 AM EDT

smallpau1 and are houses free? Don't wanna get one yet if you guys have one, so i can get one close-by!

QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 1:51 AM EDT

I wonder if my house is still around... we should make a CB village =). I think houses should be free. Check it out.

FuriousHobo August 13 2008 1:55 AM EDT

i joined just now. username is Namdoo. :)

QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 2:11 AM EDT

PM'd you =)

You know, I really like the trade system on Gaia. I wonder if CB could implement something like that. That'll make trades much cleaner and fraud-free.

*backflash to losing 40M to ABA... and it was my fault for being stupid, but yeah*

"My Gaia is just about naked with boxers on with 270 Gold and 25 Cash (Do not know the worth of these, lol) "

The boxers are worthless. And you can get a couple things for 270 gold, though not much. The cash is used in the Gaia Cash shop. Though I don't think there's much for $25...

But with the dailies and the randomly awarded gold for just simply visiting pages or going through towns, you'll have a decent bank account in no time ^_^

QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 6:35 PM EDT

Though you won't come anywhere near my bank account without investing USD =P

QBPixel Sage August 13 2008 11:26 PM EDT

For newbies! One great way to make gold is through the pinball game. And it's a fun filler time when you're waiting on CB!

PearsonTritonRaveshaw August 13 2008 11:37 PM EDT

what in the world is gaia online?

QBOddBird August 14 2008 12:02 AM EDT

PearsonTritonRaveshaw August 14 2008 12:24 AM EDT

what is it? not what's the URL. xD what's the point of playing gaia online? do i get to blow stuff up? watch stuff bleed? breed pets and watch them blow stuff up?

QBOddBird August 14 2008 12:27 AM EDT

The point is entertainment.

There's a lot of things to do there, not just one.

PearsonTritonRaveshaw August 14 2008 12:31 AM EDT

what kind of stuff?

QBPixel Sage August 14 2008 12:36 AM EDT

Get gold, dress up your avatar, walk around towns, jigsaw puzzles, PINBALL, minishops, design your own home, design your own car, race with your car, pwn, get pwnd, play the marketplace, etc.

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] August 14 2008 2:49 AM EDT

They seriously have a cinema where you can watch real movies? I dont have time to look into it, thought maybe you all have done that already, =)

QBPixel Sage August 14 2008 3:14 AM EDT

Woah dude, you're right! I never knew you could watch REAL movies on Gaia! Men in Black? The Matrix? The Karate Kid? Oh wow... free too! Let's get together a CB movie night! Even though everyone's in different timezones.

QBPixel Sage August 14 2008 3:20 AM EDT

I'm checking out the Underworld, if anyone's interested now. Apparently you don't have to be a gaia member to watch:

QBPixel Sage August 14 2008 3:42 AM EDT

Change my mind, watching MIB right now!

PearsonTritonRaveshaw August 16 2008 9:27 PM EDT

WOAH! I didn't see the cinemas! For those of you who are wondering how to find this feature, go to Gaia Online and navigate to world > cinemas, or simply go to this page . (w00h! I made a link! Oh what joy!) Also, you can see other peoples' avatars in a movie theater so a CB movie night out would be pretty cool. =P
