    Although, maybe with more CBs around, there may be more people who can join? Or people might want to join with their 2nd CBs (that is principally allowed, right?)?

    Maybe even cutting things back to one lineage per breed & gender would help getting things less confusing for potential newcomers? (So two Halloween lines per year, but only one Christmas & Valentine.)


    Actually, that's a good point. If we do just one line per gender, then people could be in the same lineage at least twice with their CB's, possibly one dragon early on and then another one later in the list. Halloween's not a problem since there aren't restrictions to the original batch of CB's so that would work just fine with the two lines.

    A person by themself just can't do a proper holiday stair. If less people sign up, then less people sign up, it's still better than having to do things alone and no harm done. But maybe we could remove the lineages that are finished from the first pages, to make space for new ones?


    This is also a good point. Maybe only have the most recent lineages on the front page, and then perhaps put the rest of them in a nice google doc for easy organization. I have the next two days off, so I might give this a go and see how it turns out...


    So maybe a good plan would be to let Valentine's finish up for this year, and then start catching up after that. :D

  2. I'm worried that this thread might not be active enough to keep adding new lines. Right now, we have 2 lines for 8 holiday releases for 3 different holidays; that's 48 lineages! For the more visual people (like myself) it looks like this: 




    I think we've all done a great job with so many of these lines! I'm just thinking that maybe...it might be a good place to stop? The signup lists just aren't as long as they used to be, which I think was the fun part of these lineages, and inactivity has hit some lists worse than others.  


    However, I think there might be a fun way to close it out. With the CB holiday biome back for Christmas, it's possible that enough people were able to snag some CB Hollies to start one or two more lines. What do you guys think? Feel free to tell me I'm off my rocker with this suggestion of course! :lol: 

  3. I've got my two CB hollies yay!! Now I just need a CB Yulebuck to have my holiday set complete because I only got one waaay back in 2008. 


    Edit: Aaaaand got the yulebuck too! Can't believe I've been able to finally fill out my scroll after all these years. So surreal. I'll put in a Christmas wish for the next thing I want ;)

  4. "Huh well I'm egglocked but I'll breed this pair anyways, they almost never breed the xenowryms I'm looking for."


    The two dragons breed to produce an egg. Oh look it's the pair's very first mageia xenowyrm egg! 


    "so you decide to abandon it."


    Ah, right. Well that's not what I expected. :dry:

    People's signatures might still be processing or it might be a result of lingering slowness due to other things processing still. I would give it another day or so to try again before giving up and starting over. ^^

    Yeah, I'm getting the same thing as well. I was worried that it was being caused by the Photobucket debacle, but I uploaded the images to imgur and had the same thing happen. Hopefully it's not too complex of a fix. 

  6. I started using Enpass for managing passwords for a while now and really like it. Although I've changed the password for this site somewhat recently, I won't mind giving it another poke since it was one that I made and not one of the safer auto-generated passwords that the program offers.

  7. I've been breeding a pyro xenowyrm with a hellhorse hoping to see if I'd get a non-pyro xeno egg. Turns out that I haven't yet, but I'm wondering if I should ever expect it? Since hellhorses are hybrids they technically have no set biome, but that might make it so that it's a wildcard instead?

  8. Mine is shown having the exact same date as yours on AoND, Dec 31, 1969...very interesting.

    Fun programming fact!


    This occurs when data that should be a UNIX timestamp is instead either empty or contains a value of zero. UNIX timestamps are integers that count the number of seconds since midnight on 12-31-1969. As you can imagine, nowadays they’re pretty big.


    Sometimes a bug in the software will cause these fields to lose their value — maybe during a software update or database migration — and that’s when you see the epoch date (12-31-1969) instead of the value you were expecting.

    (from here)


    So there probably isn't a variable set to hold the date the Sinos were summoned, not unlike the way old Vampire bites can't be tracked.
