** Their response to the inflation was to encourage further inflation by releasing higher-valued gold generators -- at one point the gold cap was 2,147,483,647 gold, and when users started reaching the cap they increased the cap, then released generators that were worth ''more than the old cap''.



* BribingYourWayToVictory: The main shops all sell for Gaia Gash (bought for real money) as well as gold, there are special stores that are Gaia Cash only, and the player to player market allows players to buy items with gold or Gaia Cash at the rate of 1 Gaia Cash being worth 50 million gold. To compare values your first forum post of the day is worth 100 gold with the value decreasing each time you post that day or you can spend under a penny and get something worth 50 million gold right away. If someone buys an item from another player for Gaia Cash the seller gets gold instead which only further devalues Gold. When faced with grinding for months to get a single item or paying fifty cents most people bribe their way to victory.
** ZOMG powerups were all Gaia Cash only.

** 2015 saw the addition of the ability to buy gold items with Gaia Cash at the rate of 1 Gaia Cash to 50 million gold. To compare values your first forum post of the day was at the time worth 100 gold (unchanged from the pre-inflation value when it was actually useful) with the value decreasing each time you post that day or you can spend under a penny and get something worth 50 million gold right away. If someone buys an item from another player for Gaia Cash the seller gets gold instead which only further devalues Gold.

Added DiffLines:

* MoralGuardians: In order to keep its image as a 13+ friendly website, the rules and guidelines specifically forbade erotic roleplay, even privately between users. Though for awhile a large underground community existed, it was eventually stamped out rather thoroughly.

* StatusQuoIsGod: The 2009 Halloween event featured an epic battle between two demigods. It was good vs. evil, the outcome of this battle would change Gaia as we know it! Then Jack steps in and hits the ResetButton by de-powering both demigods. What makes this example particularly {{egregious}} is that the side of evil did win the event.

* {{Meganekko}}: Several! Meredith the [[OfficeLady bank teller]], Cindy Donovinh the [[HotScoop reporter]], and Flynn in the Cash Shop, for starters.

* HotScoop: Cindy Donovinh. She might also qualify for HotLibrarian, since she apparently runs the archives where records of past events are kept.

* {{Vaporware}}: If you go to Durem on the world map, go down, and go left, you'll find HalloweenTown. It's been there for a couple of years, and nothing has been done with it.

* GenreSavvy: Louie decides to throw a Masquerade for Halloween 2011, only to find that nobody even wants to leave home, since Halloween events [[HilarityEnsues inevitably end in disaster]]. Unsurprisingly, his party guests end up becoming [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent werewolves]].



** Provokes GenreSavvy from the players, as [[spoiler: most of ''them'' don't buy it, either. Most of the Labtech X fanthread simply believe that Labtech X teleported to a safer place upon the robot's defeat, just like Labtech 123 did earlier.]]

* ShoutOut: The writers love these. From Rubella's [[AStreetcarNamedDesire dependence on the kindness of strangers]], to various Guards acting like their namesakes, to a big Franchise/{{Stargate|Verse}} stand-in in one area. Not to mention everything Anniedroid says.
