    HOWEVER THERE IS NOTHING SAYING THAT YOU CANNOT PUT YOUR FORUM OR SAY THAT YOU CAN BE CONTACTED ON THE FORUMS, THE RULES FOR THAT ARE STRICTLY ON HERE AND PEOPLE STILL HAVE TO GO THROUGH 50 PAGES TO ACTUALLY FIND IT. 

    THIS.

     

    There is NO WAY aside from digging through PAGES of obscure forum threads that anyone not completely inoculated into forum culture - which is a tiny, tiny little clique - to know what the heck THIS FORUM means by "misuse" ON SITE. Even the ToS talking about "bothering another user" do not automatically mean to the average player that they can't so much as MENTION the name of a user/the code of an egg, since the user still has to WILLINGLY reach out to be interacted with. That is understandable only to someone who is a regular forum user.

     

    But I don't know why I'm bothering. Plenty of other posters have tried to explain why the rules thus far are UNCLEAR and the bans are UNFAIR, but we're just lowly non-mods, so who cares?

    Actually I have a question for the trade hub mods.  Do you have the ability to just remove the offending trades?  And then not ban them til rules are put in place?

    Or just WAIT and NOT MOD THINGS until TJ gets the clear rules up. It's not like these are actively offensive messages these poor users are posting.

    @1ce1and I do not think it is your fault, in my opinion.  You did not have a forum account and therefore, did not find the rules on forum rules or on this very lengthy thread.  The rules need to be placed at top of trade hub.  Until then, I think people should not be banned.  My opinion

    I completely agree. There absolutely should be a full moratorium on bans from the Trading Hub until TJ posts clear rules ON-SITE. People are being banned for offenses that they had NO way to know were offenses and that is, quite frankly, disgusting.

  4. My great frustrations with the lack of clear rules or pagination aside, I discovered this morning that the Hub's filter does not differentiate between "Ice" and words like "nice" or "nicely". Putting quotation marks around "Ice" merely returned no results. This is unhelpful.

  5. Enter a message to help others understand what types of offers you are looking for. Please do not include links and do not ask users to contact you directly.

     

    FIXED.

     

    If your users feel that your rules are not saying what you thought they were saying, maybe some clarification is in order. And right now, it is NOT clear from the rules as written that haves are okay, that links to the specific kinds of dragons you are looking for are not okay, and that asking for PMs for various trade reasons are is not okay. It doesn't have to be a huge long list that no one will read.

     

    Also, please put a warning system in place instead of just instantly banning people who thought something would be allowed that wasn't.

    Though in reality, it is still wasting just as many slots, just across a longer period of time. Still might be more tolerable for people, of course, as it seems like less is being wasted, even though it is just a trick of the mind. :D

    You say "waste".

     

    I say "worth expending a little extra time for a guaranteed alt".

     

    It's all about perspective.

    Hi guys, could someone check if i understood correctly how the Syiat Dragons hatches?

    Without incubation, 3.23 days through 2 days seem to be blue. Two-day window. Anything prior to that seems to be green. We have yet to find out of 1.23-0 is in fact purple, but it is the prevailing theory.

    To the people asking why it’s a big deal for some that the purples take up an egg spot: for lineage breeders, it is. No, the scroll goal may not be to have as many dragons as fast as possible, but managing several lineages takes a ton of scroll space all the time. It means constantly raising eggs and/or catching good trade fodder to use as trade bait for needed mates. I’m not personally complaining. The mechanic is annoying to me, but it’s tolerable. I’m explaining why some people ARE so bothered by it. I’ll likely just trade for a few purples and be done with them. 

    As a lineage breeder, I'd rather an egg take a spot for longer and be guaranteed the correct alt than an RNG like Nebulas or Gemshards. I do wish the Blue alt window hadn't turned out to be so long, though.

    Headcanon accepted. Let the revolution begin!

  10. Gotta say, while I'm not a fan of complex breeding mechanics, I actually REALLY like the new Siyat mechanics, because it's 100% player controlled. No dumb luck, no one biome being infinitely more popular than another, no waiting for the clock or calendar (aside from the egg's own timer), no worrying about what biome or mana the parents adhere to. I am perfectly content with this.

     

    (Also all of the new sprites are beautiful!)

    HI friends, a couple things...

     

    1. I can confirm that luminae are influenced by the moon and it transitions in waves. Unfortunately, the ratios have been influencing the outcome to make it way less predictable than I had hoped. Maybe something to look into.  But for now you have “official” confirmation. 

    2. I have learned from the Dark Lumina mistake.  I don’t play with a focus on lineages but I have learned not to break them. 

    3. The mechinism for these is reliable and will not break lineages*. 

    4. I love you all and let’s wait and see how it works before we set everything on fire. 

     

    @VixenDra

     

    Mods, maybe it would be helpful to pin this while we're still in figuring-this-out mode? 

  12. Does anyone here know @Predat0rs in a capacity outside this forum? If so, will you please contact them and ask them to check their PMs, as they have a number of hatchlings awaiting pickup, some of which might grow up tonight? Thank you.

     

    Please note that I DO NOT want alternate contact details for them, so PLEASE don't provide them to me if you have them.

  13. *Hums in*

     

    Gorgeous FoE sprites, many thanks, all artists. I'm in love with the two banners.

     

    I'm extremely happy that I got a second chance at getting an upside-down Mint this year, as I was on hiatus last year - I got eaten in the game, but caught what I needed in the AP. ^>^ I hope the Dragon's Dilemma game remains a permanent DC April Fool's feature, in addition to whatever other jokes may occur. (For the record, I think it was a really good call to disable trading/teleprting on those Mints).

     

    Also, I will admit that the announcement post cracked me up. XD

     

    Good event. Very enjoyable. Thanks, everyone!
