  1. Whoops! Bit of a mishap behind the scenes, please check your codes everyone! Looks like a hatchling or two bolted while I had the dryvac on. They'll be fine of course, but if your list of dragons entered into DDF looks a smidgen shorter than it ought to, sorry about that!
  2. Trainer name: Wobblegong Game version: Y Friend code: available on request. I probably can't be reached without a PM anyways. Pokemon I can offer: Pretty much anything available in the main game-- if I don't have it yet, I can GTS one and breed as many as you'd like. Ditto power GO! Notable Pokemon I can get you fast: Deino, Timid Larvesta, Adamant Larvitar, Ditto, Hidden Ability Shroomish, Hidden Ability Venipede. Plus assorted stuff found relatively easily in the game-- want a Goomy earlier than you see it in the wild? I can hook you up! Pokemon I need: ● Gen 2/3/4/5 starters except Torchic ● Things found commonly/uncommonly in the wild: I skip catching a lot of things because I'd like to trade for them to boost my unique trainer ID number count for the lotto. If you can find forty of them in tall grass without trying, I probably still want one! My Vivillon pattern is: useless AKA Modern. My Safari pokemon are: Seviper, Ariados, Whirlipede [Poison] Gifting? Gifts are fun to give! That's pretty much my approach to Wonder Trade. Shroomish Oprah: You get a Shroomish! YOU Get a Shroomish! EVERYONE GETS A SHROOMISH! Pokerus: I have it! You want it? Just mention! I'll try to rub some into everything I send out, but I might forget. Berry care package: I'm happy to send along a berry with every pokemon traded! I'll pick one of the less common types at random, but feel free to request one you don't have and I'll do my best to accommodate. Availability: I'm around several hours a day most days, daytime to evening EST but precise availability varies. Drop me a PM to work something out! Accepting battle challenges? Nope. Changelog: I'm building a PC box of things people seem to like. That way I'll always have some on hand to trade!
  3. I just noticed this-- very handy, thank you! My cleaning is all the faster now. *turns dryvac back on, putters back behind the curtain*
  4. I had to hard-refresh to get anything to work, despite having scripts enabled. Try that if the site isn't working for you but javascript is allowed! (Windows: ctrl-F5; mac cmnd-F5?) Thanks for leaving the old version available, I really do like the functionality of dealing with codes. Didn't realize how much until I was confronted with the new version. (It's nice when I forget to take a newly-grown dragon out beforehand, I hate leaving adults in hatcheries if I can help it.)
  5. Marking for deletion (clicking the red X) doesn't count as a view because it does not load the dragon's page. If you keep an eye on the bottom of "view all", when you click it for a dragon you get a little message thanking you for helping keep the hatchery clean. The idea of counting clicks is to count how many clicks-the-stat you doled out to Dragon Cave dragons, so counting dragons you didn't actually look at (generally because you couldn't/it wouldn't count) would be counterproductive! Also, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for marking for deletion. It makes my dryvaccing about a bazillion times easier and more efficient when people have already propped little "CAUTION: WET" signs on the puddles. Thank you for posting the FAQ, pinkgothic! I'll try to remember to put questions that get asked frequently in this thread in there as they come up.
  6. Yeah, sorry, I almost added a digression about that -- it's entirely possible, I know other hatcheries can do it via page scraping/API access/etc, but it's a completely different system. Not better or worse, just different-- I assumed you didn't have any plans to change DDF over to something more automated. I guess I underestimated your to-do list! Hey hey hey while we're thinking of neat things, could we get some kind of useful FAQ somewhere, either in the main post of this thread or on the site itself? (Or both, if you feel fancy.) Stuff I keep wanting to mention/bring up: the click-paying-for-protection system (it's not super complicated but a quick explanation would probably help) why users shouldn't worry about frozen hatchlings-- some variation of my third paragraph in my last post would probably work. If anyone else has things they think would be served by having a permanent note/explanation, please chime in! And now I am going to stop posting while super sleepy. I swear.
  7. As far as I know, there's no good way for DDF to automate or have other players flag/remove frozen hatchlings, so they'll generally be removed by whoever put them in. Pinkgothic would know, but that's my understanding. This isn't ideal, but given that a frozen hatchling DOES use up one of the owner's 21 entries, a user isn't likely to leave them in there indefinitely. They wouldn't leave adults in there indefinitely either, but those are more likely to happen (nearly all dragons put in hatcheries probably grow to adulthood) and they're easier to notice for removal. I'd be astonished if there's more than a dozen frozen hatchlings in the hatchery on a single day, and that's just not many out of the total. (I am completely making that statistic up, but that's based on how many people I think freeze hatchlings vs how many users we have.) If you ever see a hatchling which clearly couldn't be growing in there (two-seasons-off seasonal, holiday months from that holiday, non-dragon, etc) please feel free to flag it! Otherwise don't worry about it too much, they're probably such a small population that will be removed on its own that it's not worth worrying about. Pardon my mess if any of that is confusing-- this admin-ninja needs to totter ninja-skulk off to bed now-- but hopefully that answers your question, angelicdragonpuppy!
  8. Clock's working for me, Firefox 22.0.
  9. I get to be a ninja! I accept this since there's no dryvac emoticon. Thanks for keeping the site going pinkgothic. Thank you to everyone (gone and not) who ran DDF back in the day. Here's to dragons and clicking and keeping the hatchery clean for as long as we can going forward!
  10. I certainly don't lose anything but the clicks to apply it, so every once in awhile when I'm staring at a BSA page clogged with purples I go through and bap various breeding projects/rares. Seems to be helpful, I feel like I have more success with fertility'd pairs.

    A little bit late but Riverwillows → Wobblegong: the perfect code egg! Thanks again!
  12. Pulled this Flamingo out not too long ago. Gorgeous! I'm so glad people are generous enough to share out nice eggs.
  13. PSA: ER's back to not cleaning itself automatically. Probably a change to something on the Dragon Cave side of things, seems like other hatcheries' ERs aren't faring any better. I have some issues when trying to work with the Viewer and it finally occurred to me that I could ask for some help. 1. Sometimes when I try to configure the dragons per time with the Viewer, when I hit "Start Views" it discards my settings and puts me back to the defaults. Seems to be related to trying to look at many dragons at once, somehow? For example, 300 ERs/50 dragons/10 min works, but all ERs/50 dragons/10 min results in it chucking out my settings and resetting me to 50/100/30sec. 2. Why does the X to check/remove dragons MOVE?! The display under Home has everything stationary; ditto ER, Tools, Links/Contacts. But when using the viewer under Viewer, the little X beside each dragon bounces around depending on whether you're mousing over a dragon or not. I have pretty decent click accuracy, but it's absolutely maddening to try to catch a moving target, especially one that is liable to vibrate when you mouse over the wrong spot. Tech specs: Firefox 19, Win 7, scripts/permissions enabled (although that doesn't appear to do anything beyond permitting the window to refresh while I'm not interacting with it). Is it just me? Can anything be done? Problem #2 is especially infuriating, I'd use the site more often if it didn't happen. Problems aside, thanks for this hatchery! I have a soft spot for it, it's very reliable.
  14. Ohmygoodness this is a nice change. I might actually spend an appreciable amount of time hunting in the AP now! Wonderful.
  15. Oh, I like that! Especially with LadyLyzar's "Wasteland" tweak. Yes please!
  16. 3rdgen neotropical + canopy checker free to a good home! Please post here if you nab it. Nabbed, thanks!
  17. Any or all of these suggestions would be welcome. And hooray for a neat event!

    Once more, thanks so much! I never thought I'd get one of these-- and it has a pretty nice lineage to boot! Yay!

    Wobblegong -> WWECornSerpent: 3rdgen checker Thuwed (it's so green!)
  20. Depending on where you are, this Nebula is either from the North or the US. And they drop in the Alpine biome? Since when?
  21. I'd love "signing up" eggs/etc for trades before they can go through. Still keeps people from spam-dumping caveblockers, but reduces the hassle of trading a little. (Yes, I know, trading isn't a hassle like it used to be, but let's be honest-- does forcing people to come back to deal with putting fresh-caught CBs in trades or the like in five hours improve the game? I don't think it does.)

    cerimonster -> Wobblegong: thunder egg! Thanks so much, it's adorable!
  23. Troublemaker "oh yeah I can never remember the glorydrake egg description" sunsong that jumped under my cursor in the biomes: 1pip6! Yeah, living up to your code alright. I hope it causes me less trouble when it's older! Trade offer I reluctantly accepted because another BSA is another BSA, even if it IS 17 counts of messy inbred-- and only then saw the code: MsLIp! I Influenced female as soon as I saw that. Ma'am Lucky Diversity Lip-- Ms Lip to her friends-- will have a place of honor on my scroll, despite that disaster of a lineage page. And one of my favorite Canopy dragons now, AUDhi is happy to see you! (I imagine him yelling very loudly before abruptly cutting to a pleasantly excited "hi" when greeting people.)
  24. Thanks! I'll try doing something like that... maybe use the fiery jerks, keep up the red/"passion" theme. Concerning the sunstones and golden wyverns, I'd say equal parts good and weird! I want to see it now, so I think you should do it.
