  1. Have: CB new Holiday egg available now All previous CB Christmas dragons available to breed except Holly. Want: 2nd gen Holly from Holly x Red Nebula only.
  2. If you need somebody to help breed 2nd gens now from CB Sweets, I have two that haven’t been bred, and I may be able to get a third egg. Am I right in thinking that the eggs would be from Sweet x Pink? Not Sweet x Sweet?
  3. Have: (for a relative) CB CB 2x CB Can also add this from me: Alt Sweetling x Silver 4th gen perfect EG Want: 2nd gen IOU 2nd gen IOU
  4. Have: (for a relative) CB CB 2x CB Want: 2nd gen IOU 2nd gen IOU
  5. For a relative: Have: 2x CB 1x CB 2x CB Want: 2nd gen 2nd gen
  6. Trading: I can breed 2nd gen Valentines with a mate of your choice from any previous Valentine except Mutamore. I am interested in 2nd gen Shimmer IOUs, from a holiday mate of my choice.
  7. I would love to see EATW resurrected, as it would be a big F-you to the people who brought it down in the first place. Maybe there could be a hard limit on the number of views given in future? Limiting users is a bad idea I feel, but if you had a safety net that shut down ALL views if it noticed a massive spike in traffic for a set period of time, and a back-up ratio that noticed if a particular egg was being viewbombed? It knows how old each egg is, so if you told it 'an egg should have no more than this many views at that point in time' on a sliding scale then it could take the egg out of rotation, then put it back when it got to a lower time that meant the views it had were acceptable for it's age. Obviously eggs that require fewer views could potentially still get sick, as there is quite a wide range between old eggs like Purples and the newer GoN and Prize dragons. If you gave a GoN 7k views it wouldn't mind at all, but a Purple would probably still end up sick even at 4 days. I may be wrong, but surely the vast bulk of the code from EATW should be usable exactly as it is - it was the way it was being used by the end-user that was the problem, and the lack of abuse safeguards. As long as the original owner has no complaints then it could be put back up as soon as somebody paid the domain fees. Perhaps crowd-funding for the initial fees, and then ask for ongoing donations or use ads? The site was very popular after all.
  8. This whole argument boils down to two points - possession and control. If you want to control your bred eggs then you have to possess them, as that is the only guaranteed way to decide what happens to them. I strongly disagree with having the ability to keep all (or even more) eggs from one clutch because I believe there are unfortunately more people out there who would keep them all than would let them go to the AP. People breed for a purpose, either for themselves or others. How long do you think people will keep breeding week in and week out to send all the eggs to the AP if they have no other reason to breed those dragons? And if they are breeding those dragons for a personal reason then given the chance to keep extra eggs I believe a significant number of people will do so. The current method is forced generosity, and it works, as seen by the AP. I think you are underestimating how many people breed only for people they know, or who are part of a group or forum they are involved with. Although this forum has a large userbase there are lots more people out there spread across many smaller forums. Humans are by nature cliquey and greedy, and it’s extremely difficult to trade for anything rare without being able to catch CB rares. Hand on heart how many rare eggs would you send to the AP if your proposal came about?
  9. Having a reverse filter would also be an excellent addition to the marketplace. You don’t want to scroll through hundreds of other offers to find one asking for what you’ve got. You could use a search function that searches the “want” list and brings back only trades asking for things you have on your scroll, as either eggs or hatchlings.
  10. 1. Jinglepupskye 2. Mint choc chip (but it's far too cold right now to eat ice cream!) Thanks for running this
  11. Have: 2x CB (on cooldown) Want: or 2nd gen (IOU preferred)
  12. Have: 2 x CB at 4 days 22 hours (will hatch for you as they're incubated) CB Want: or 2nd gen (IOU preferred)
  13. Have: CB x2 available now. Want: 2nd gen Shimmer with choice of mate (prefer silver or gold Shimmer) (IOU much preferred as I'm planning to be locked until after Christmas)

  16. If anybody asks for purebred Nebulas I can help with any gen up to 6th gen. I own all of the dragons in this lineage: https://dragcave.net/lineage/h78rC The other half will be named, I just need to sit down and work out the character limits... I'm currently working on catching enough CBs to duplicate the lineage so I can take it down to 7th gen, but that will be a long time coming.
  17. I just bred a Shimmer egg with a code that includes LttP - I am definitely keeping this baby! I was planning to keep one at some point, but I can't resist that code. Link to the Past is my favourite Zelda game.
  18. I can understand, and support the principles in this thread. Most of the time I've been on the side of it where all I had to offer were bred dragons of various lineages or IOUs of CBs. It is incredibly frustrating when all you see in the trading threads is people offering rares, commons and inbred metals for rare dragons. When the entire thread is filled with people asking for CB metals or Tinsels/Shimmers you lose hope that anyone will trade you a dragon of that type for the (perceived) little you have available. I personally worry that some people may take this as an all or nothing - you either trade for CB rares, or you accept that offer of a couple of random CB hatchies and nothing else. This also leaves the people with the rarer dragons open to abuse from people who expect them to give them a rare dragon for some inbred dragons just because they said they would trade for commons. Most people aren't that daft, but unfortunately some are. Any trade offer should have some inherent worth, even if that worth is not enough for the dragon you're aiming for. CB hatchies are good, inbred are not for most people.
  19. Thanks Danielle, I'm glad it went to a good home I think the worst producer recently is that pair, and a Silver Tinsel who produced 5 Nebulas in a row! Danielle, if you want more 2nd gens from my pairs just let me know - they'll be named (eventually) according to a scheme if that bothers you. I've got 8 sets of CBs between the two species, so I could even do purebreds if they're needed for anyone.
  20. Snap! I'm doing a project like that, with PurplexRed and GreenxBlue. Each colour pairing is going down to 4th gen, then combined with each other and then this for a 6th gen: http://dragcave.net/lineage/UKGtG It's hard work, I took nearly a year, but it's worth it in the end I found that there's times where you get nothing but Blue and Purple, and other times they all alt - you just have to hope your breeding schedule coincides lol. I've already started collecting CBs to take it to 7th gen!
  21. Ugh, another blue egg! That's 5 in a row. Free to a good home, GWxRB 2nd gen: http://dragcave.net/teleport/a35a9ccfe8993...1c6388cd0cc45dc I did manage to breed the last egg I needed for the other half of the lineage, so now I just need to breed the last 3rd gen when that egg grows up. http://dragcave.net/lineage/f7V8X
  22. The owner of that Shimmer named her after the Temeraire series of books too (His Majesty's Dragon for you Americans). I'm way down the list for a second gen from her, but I can't wait - as soon as I saw the code I knew I had to try and get on the list If you've never read Temeraire or Dragonriders of Pern I can't recommend them enough - Dragonflight was released in 1968, but still shines better than most books today, despite what some daft people on Amazon seem to think.
  23. I would Like to join! Do you want to opt in for receiving personal breeding requests though pms? If anybody needs eggs from dragons I've finished with, then feel free. If YES please put your scroll name, and forum name here: Jinglepupskye on both accounts. Do you have any dragon ready for this project? Oh yes. What type of Lineage would you like to work on? EG checkerboard. How many generation can you make by yourself? 5th gen. Any extra notes? like you don't hold on to gifted eggs etc etc? I have all the CBs I need to make a 5th EG checkerboard with GWxRB, and this is where I'm up to so far: http://dragcave.net/lineage/DcHIP and http://dragcave.net/lineage/HZY6A . I still need to breed 2 dragons from the CB pairs before I can complete the 2nd gen, but the dragons that have produced their offspring are now sat twiddling their thumbs, so feel free to ask for eggs from them. They will be named (eventually!) and it may be lyric based, just so you know.
  24. That's really pretty Aqua, I know how long it can take breeding them in the right colourway! This is mine so far: http://dragcave.net/lineage/UKGtG. It's up to 5th gen atm, and I have all the CBs needed to make its mate and take it to 6th gen. Unfortunately they aren't as good breeders as the first set, I never had a single refusal the first time, and this lot have already had one refusal! Once I finish this and get another 32 CBs total I'm going to breed down to 7th gen - I must be mad! I just need to decide what quotes to use with them.
  25. This is a lovely idea Here's a Valentine gift for someone: http://dragcave.net/teleport/8216393605d42...6d74f5ca6b50236 The parents will be named appropriately at some point! Lol
