GaiaOnline is an anime-themed social networking and forums-based website. Originally named " ??-02", it changed to on February 18, 2003 by Gaia Interactive. Gaia originally began as an anime linklist and eventually got itself a small community but after a statement by founder Derek Liu (username "Lanzer"), the website moved towards social gaming. It eventually became the forum-based website it is now. Users of the site, known as Gaians, create a customizable avatar and a customizable virtual home for which they can purchase items using what is called gold. This virtual currency is given to the users after engaging in some of the website activities, such as playing a series of Flash games or regular posting inside the forums; the site also rewards users every day with random quantities of gold and items with the Daily Chance feature.
