Forums General Chit-Chat Discovering Voltra

I've been a Gaia user for quite a bit and just recently rediscovered the joy of avatar forums once again. I really enjoy the welcoming and social environments as well as the unique avatars and personalities that reside in them. I made an account here today on a quest to discover and interact with new communities!

I'm also interested in your stories! How did you discover Voltra and how was your first experience here?

Moody Says. . .


before it was launched i kinda just googled avatar sites or upcoming avatar sites
and i found voltra's page on FB.
eventually found out about what discord was and joined their discord and was there for quite some time.

in the beginning i was not in a good place at all.
but more recently i've been in a better place and enjoying voltra better as 2017-2019
were really hard years for me mentally.

I've known Fozzy for several years and knew he was working on a site so I'd been on the lookout for it and was able to join when it opened for Alpha!

So thankful to have discovered this site as it's become my home and Fozzy is my brother from another mother! <3 And you all are truly amazing I love this community so much >3<

I was googling inactive avatar sites and I really missed playing dress-up with an avatar and socialising with people. ;_; -was very lonely and depressed- Voltra Online popped up in my google search results.

So far my experience here has been very nice and welcoming. :)

my friend works on the site, and told me about it, so i joined. :> it's been a pretty good experience overall, everyone here is much kinder and more accepting than on Gaia, imo.

Welcome to the site! :)

I was watching a video about someone talking about Gaia on Youtube, then saw someone mentioning Voltra as I scroll down the comment section. It got me really curious since I wanted to join an avatar site that's at least reminds me how people used to be friendly without this whole drama thing. Then I searched it on Google and decided to survey the site before joining in.

In the end I did and I never regret it. Though I used to think people on Voltra aren't as friendlly as other sites, however it took me about small steps just to (or try to) make friends or at least socialize with people since I'm very shy in general. I would say Voltra is wholesome and somewhat genuinely nicer than I thought.

welcome to voltra! you should check out the event if you haven't already.

I was nostalgic for that small-avatar-site vibe so I came here.
very first experience was making an intro thread and being greeted by like 10 people at once, it made the site feel very welcoming haha
I also joined during an event, so it was really active and there were lots of activities and people to talk to ;3c

@riversbox: hey welcome. I think you will really like it here. The community is pretty welcoming.
I first discovered Voltra from a friend when it was brand new. I was looking for an avatar site home since Ernya shut down. I’ve been around ever since.

I'm friendly and will chat with anyone!

I joined on the first day. There's a group on Facebook called Ernyan Refugees and that's where I heard about Voltra. I think. It was quite a while ago lol. Anyway welcome to the site!

I heard about this site from my long time fav community on Menewsha. That site has long since been abandoned by the founder that it's just going to sit and rot until the domain expires in a few years. It's unfortunate, I really loved that community.
I am also on Gaia, been there since 06 and I will be there when the ship finally sinks. I met some wonderful people there and I like the art shops the most so I just stick around.
I really like Voltra's community a lot, it's so friendly and I enjoy seeing the events (this current event has been one of my favorite events on a forum site since Gaia's water balloon fight, I'm SO impressed).
I'm also on Dappervolk, I just joined actually and I'm digging the story of it. But I see that more as a game rather than a forum like this. The art is so so so so pretty tho like...mmm goals.

Hopefully you enjoy it here! The mods seem really in tune with the members and I love how they collaborate with us on items. It's really nice. I hope to be here for awhile c:
