  1. That was what I meant by "limiting them to only one thread", i.e. the currently existing Prize thread. I checked the general trading thread, and at least a third or even HALF of each page is Prize haves or wants. I call that "burying ordinary trades". I've seen several people posting an uncommon trade or the like, and mere minutes later there's 3-4 Prize trades that push the uncommon trade to the previous page, meaning it becomes invisible to people who don't bother checking previous pages. I've found Prizes overrated since they were first introduced. In my opinion, only NDs are worth 4 CB Golds or the like. 2G Prizes also count, but 3G Prizes definitely aren't worth more than one CB metal. And 4Gs aren't worth a single one.
  2. I wonder if that "filtering out" option could be achieved with the forum's system? It sounds like a very, very good option - then people who want to trade something other than Prizes could finally find what they're looking for, without having to resort to CTRL+F every single page.
  3. Actually, it isn't. I've been trying to get a pair of CB Jungle Xenowyrms ever since they were released. Whenever I look for Xeno trades, it's always either high-gen Prizes, Xeno swaps or CB metals. ...That's stuff I have trouble getting. I had to depend on the kindness of another user to get three Xenos since I couldn't even see any myself, despite refreshing for hours. Prizes and new releases are overrated. I'll just say that much. :\
  4. ...I tried to go back a few pages and couldn't see a suggestion like this within the first four pages or so. So, basically, I've been seeing people mention how Prize eggs are dominating the trading threads (and I personally think that's the case, too) and I came up with one suggestion for it. Limit Prize trades to only ONE thread, specifically aimed at them. Ban Prizes (both wants and haves) from all other threads so the common, uncommon and rare trades don't get buried under the boatload of Prizes that keep popping up. * Prizes could be allowed in the other trading threads if they're 6th gen or higher since they're barely worth an uncommon or two. * Of course, the Prizes could also be limited to two threads, to keep everything clutter-free. Namely, a thread for Prize owners who want to trade their Prizes; and another thread for people who WANT Prizes and have something to offer for them. Anybody with me on this? EDIT: ...Last I've checked, the "trade everything", EG and stairstep/spiral threads have been dominated by Prize wants and haves for years. It's getting on my nerves to be honest - most 'ordinary' trades keep getting buried and pushed back to previous pages by all the Prizes.
  5. Is it just me, or did the ER completely stop working? I've been hatching my dragons with the ER function since the new site went up, but somehow today it doesn't work anymore. My two eggs aren't gaining any views at all. EDIT: Never mind, the wording on the Daycare page just confused me. The "allow ER use" option doesn't do anything. It took me a while to realize the "Add to Clinic" option is the actual ER.
  6. I keep missing all the Manas. :\ I still need a Coast female, Desert male and a gendered pair of Jungles. Trying to trade for them, too. No dice. With my luck, these are going to turn into new Almandines/Spessartines and become impossible to trade for without CB Golds or Silvers. ...Somebody actually thought my 2nd gen Avatar was worth a messy 10th gen Spessartine. Automatically declined THAT particular offer.
  7. If we got a hybrid, I'd love a hybrid of metals. Gold/silver: Electrum or Doré Bullion. Gold/copper: Rose Gold, Tumbaga, Corinthian Bronze, Hepatizon, Shakudo or Goloid. Silver/copper: Billon, Corinthian Bronze, Hepatizon, Britannia Silver, Goloid, Shibuichi, Sterling Silver or Tibetan Silver. I'd also love new CB metals, especially Tungsten, Platinum and Palladium.
  8. I bred my commons! Action Log Screenshot: Log 1, Log 2, Log 3, Log 4, Log 5, Log 6 Ticket Numbers Desired: 12, 475, 6500, 10000
  9. Righty then. I think I'll just update my passport and tell people to PM me about Nicosia and Torshavn so I don't get stuck with unwanted eggs. I've also updated the list of available breeds - removed the breeds that have been chosen, and added Anagallis, Gemshards, Plated Colossus and Striped Rivers.
  10. I currently have a 2G PB Silver on my scroll - I've decided to try and trade it for a 2G PB Alt Black female. Do you guys think that's a fair trade or do I need to add something?
  11. If we get Seasonal hybrids, I want them to be like this: Winter/Spring hybrid = Sleet Dragon (loves hiding in people's shoes and makes things all slippery) Spring/Summer hybrid = Pollen Dragon (causes allergies) Summer/Autumn hybrid = Indian Summer Dragon (heats up at inopportune times) Autumn/Winter hybrid = Autumn Storm Dragon (mows over trees and hailstorms all over the lawn)
  12. Congrats ADP~ Raffles like these should happen more often - at least then we could get the ratios fixed by ourselves.
  13. Btw, could I pitch in the form of raffle eggs? (I just typed raggle. wtf) I've got several Shimmers and Tinsels and I could breed them to try and get some more prizes for this project. Most of them are rather long-lined, but I DO have seven 5G and eight 4G stairsteps/spirals and even two 3G stairsteps. There's no telling which of the prizes breed true, but I could probably get at least 5-6 eggs out of the 17 lines. PS. I don't know if this particular pairing has been suggested for the list yet, but it's getting really annoying on my end. http://dragcave.net/progeny/hgvB2 It's an IOU of Bleeding Moon x Blusang - I need a 6G Blusang from this, but all I've gotten are 9-10 Bleeding Moons.
  14. Ticket to Baghdad is ready~ http://dragcave.net/teleport/e8471ce065927...e777f098888493f
  15. I've changed the Nicosia ticket's link to a one-way transfer since I'm scroll-locked. The hatchie is 1 day and 18 hours away from dying so if you still need to travel to Nicosia, PM me. If it gets too close to dying, I'm probably going to freeze and release it.
  16. Do you have Adblock or any other ad-blocking program active? 4shared doesn't let anyone who blocks ads play any files. Does this work better? (Yes, people. This is me. Just trying to pinpoint my accent.) http://www.mediafire.com/listen/4vvdqt11s8...-_Hatsuharu.WAV PS. When I re-enacted that line, I did NOT expect to end up sounding like a sassy wench at that final "huh".
  17. I'd love to know how people are even able to find CB Silvers these days. I haven't seen a single one in 10 months. ...Haven't seen a CB Gold in 17 months.
  18. "Hang in there and keep hunting"? For years? I've gotten TWO CB Golds in seven years. Seven freakin' years. That kind of rarity is just completely off the scale. Now, I wouldn't mind new rares being added to the site, but I'd appreciate actually having a chance at catching them on my own without resorting to trades. As it is now, that trading option is the only one available for most users on this site since somehow all metallics keep disappearing without us even seeing any of them. If new rares are added while the ratios are like this... in b4 the same "never even seeing a rare in the cave" issue happens to the new ones.
  19. I don't have my refresher on all the time so I'm not really that worried - I actually hunt just like everybody else most of the time, and only really put the refresher on when my hand's hurting. ...Though even my manual refreshing is pretty fast (every few seconds) so a detection mechanism like that would think I'm a scripter even if I did it all manually. (My hand is better today so I've reverted back to normal clicking for the moment.) Personally I don't really see the problem in auto-refreshers while hunting - scripts that catch the eggs FOR you without you needing to do anything are the real problem. That's just plain wrong. Anyway, back on topic, I still remember the days when we could actually SEE Golds and Silvers pass by in the cave and actually had a chance at catching them. Somehow during the past few years, it has become completely impossible to catch - or even see - any of them in the cave. The same happened to Coppers and the two rare Pyralspites. Either this is a screwy ratio issue or people with faster connections (or scripters) snatch them all up before I can find them. ...Then there's that issue with "top of the hour" lag - mine lasts for 1-2 minutes and the rares for that drop will be gone by then (I once hunted for two hours nonstop and didn't see a single metallic). That "Prizes dominating trade" thing is honestly pissing me off. Nowadays all we see in the trade threads are "want 2G Prize" and "this and this 2G Prizekin" (all uncommon and common trades get buried under these posts) - wanting 3-4 CB Golds for a 2G-3G Prize is honestly way overpriced. Honestly, what about THOSE of us who have trouble catching even one CB Gold? DC didn't use to be this elitist before.
  20. ...I'm using Reload Every to stave off carpal tunnel syndrome while hunting. I'm heavily subject to carpal thanks to flexible joints and, in fact, right now my right hand - my dominant, mouse/clicking and writing hand - has that issue. My wrist keeps freezing at random times and I have to literally pop it to get it working again - it's basically trigger finger, just in the wrist. It's been like this for an entire month now. Let's just say, I'm not going to injure my hand further if there's a way around that. :\ ...Besides, it's not like auto-refreshers make it any easier to hunt. I have only two CB Golds and four CB Silvers, and I've been here since 2008.
  21. ...I have a tankero English accent. Sorry, that was a Finnish inside joke. Tankero-English is this stereotypical English accent that Finns tend to have - very stiff, choppy and unwieldy. Mine isn't actually that bad, but it's by no means a pretty accent. I'd say mine is a mix between the general American accent and the general British one, as in I pronounce some words the American way and some the British way. I once recorded myself re-enacting one of Hatsuharu's lines from Fruits Basket's English dub. This is that clip - feel free to try and place my accent. It's somewhat American, but I'm not sure which region.
  22. This. Scripters like these make the game less fun for people with slower connections (my connection is decently fast, but even so I haven't seen a single Gold, Silver, Almandine, Spessartine or Copper in MONTHS) - scripters do not deserve any of their rares since they've cheated their way into getting them. That's why I don't script - the only 'cheating' I do is Firefox's auto-refresher (i.e. "Reload Every") to save my hands from carpal tunnel syndrome. I see only two solutions for this: either make CB Golds less rare, or devise a method to block userscripts from running so scripters can't do their thing (or sniffing these cheaters out and then banning them from the site).
  23. I'm sorry for being so inactive lately. I somehow keep forgetting about this site. http://dragcave.net/teleport/aa1195782892b...8b17b9be23f27e0 Anyway, new ticket to Baghdad~
  24. Here's a new Pink ticket to Nicosia. ...I'm still active, though I appear to take a few hiatuses every now and then... http://dragcave.net/teleport/e4c900bda512a...611b45261510e48
  25. I joined on October 1st, 2008. I even have a CB vampire, Lysistrata Thanatos. The oldest dragon I have: Deamiel Egg Laid on: Sep 30, 2008 Hatched on: Oct 05, 2008 Grew up on: Oct 08, 2008
