  1. Yes to this suggestion. It seems like a good option to have. Having recently bred my holiday dragons and... having to go through and abandon that one egg it had me keep Sort of a pain. Having the option to just send the lot to the AP if we wish would simplify things immensely.
  2. Happy holidays, DC! *Que JT Holiday eggstot he AP *
  3. I wouldn't be opposed to this idea at all. :3 I think it could be a useful tool. I would think that Unbreedables would include zombies, neggies, vampires, cheeses, papers and their ilk, yes?
  4. Well, the IOU I did was for a Neglected so... pretty special, I'd say. But yes, I think that is exactly what I will do.
  5. Thanks for all the pointers. I sort of have already promised her first two eggs. One to someone for a trade for an ND and another Because I wanted togift them.... but I think I may hold off on making any FURTHER promises. Not get myself into any FURTHER debt , for now. After ALL... I think I'd SORT of like to have an eg or two for myself, as well.
  6. That is the sort of general info I am looking for. Just...general stuff like that.
  7. Em...hello. I am a new prize winner. 🏆 So hello to all my fellow winners. Poking here looking for the experiences of others with such pretties.
  8. Here here to this! Here I was thinking I was gonna give my scroll a rest and prepare my Incubators for the upcoming Holiday festivities but... well... new releases are hard to resist.
  9. I had to look them up and yes, I can definitely see it.
  10. Or perhaps certain kinds of long-horn cattle? That is what I pictured I guess?
  11. I don't use earthquake much either. PRIMARILY because I very generally have at least ONE egg I'd be loathe to risk on the gamble. IF I had this option I might very WELL consider using it. So.. support... even IF I didn't use it, having the option is cool and makes sense to me.
  12. *Giggles evilly* Seeing as HOW you don't seem to have a link to your scroll I'll just swipe a random dragon from you and set this thread in motion again!
  13. I can't believe it, I can't actually believe it! This month luck was with me! I got a CB bronze shimmer! Been wanting one for AGES! ( And entering religiously every month )
  14. The more I follow this thread and read about this the more I conclude that it is one of those ideas that might prove to be more trouble than it is worth. HOWEVER AFAIK, TJ can choose NOT to use them, so we don't know for a fact that he will. He was merely gauging interest, as far as I can tell.
  15. And... while I can see where you are coming from @Uther_Pendragon , I can sort of agree with olympe in that there are a NUMBER of reasons someone might use a response and that actually stopping to think about WHY you like/agree ( Or NOT) with a post in order to effectively reply can actually be a good thing. And @HeatherMarie... I guess the problem is that those of us that don't suffer from that kind of anxiety have a hard time understanding how difficult it must be for those that do.
  16. Well, it isn't even that they DEFINITELY would be REGULARLY used in those ways here... the problem is that they COULD be. And, I'll be honest. Quite likely WOULD be next time things on here got heated. Therein lies the problem with this, for me personally. Don't get me wrong. It isn't USUALLY that contentious and nasty on here. Not USUALLY. Just that some people feel very, VERY strongly about certain things and... heated 'discussions' have happened on here in the past. *Sweetlings, anyone?* THAT being the case... I CAN understand the caution towards something like this.
  17. Then perhaps an opt out could do both things? Make it so you personally can't get or give reactions... AND make everyone else's reactions invisible to you in order to prevent the sort of circumvention of it that @olympe described. An opt out would mean that, in effect, they don't exist for you.
  18. Well, and I may have misunderstood what they meant, too. BUT I DO know that we have the ability to see or not see signatures. I guess I was assuming that that was sort of how that would work. Again... I may have misunderstood.Fair point about bullies and petty people, of course, BUT that sort of bullying wouldn't be possible if , when I opt out, reactions become completely invisible. It simply wouldn't effect me. We can ALSO set it to ignore posts and activity from particular users entirely if I understand correctly. ( Correct me if I am in error...) If that is used, my understanding is, the 'muted' individual's stuff just ... poofs. It becomes invisible to you. Not a thing I have ever needed to use, mind you, but SORT of nice to know it is there if I DO ever need it.
  19. To what purpose? I can't imagine WHY someone would care enough about SOMEONE ELSE gaining reactions to quote it JUST for that reason. Seems silly to me, but what do I know. Besides... wouldn't a "Quote... here give this person reactions!" type post be considered spam and removed as such? And ANYWAY... if I have it set so I can't SEE whether or not I have reactions, how would it effect me?
  20. And actually... @Fuzzbucket , I think that IF we have such a thing... handling it like the sigs, where I have the option to see all, ignore a certain individual or individuals, or ignore the lot, would be the best way to go.
  21. The thing is, tho... IF I feel the desire to post, it is because I have something to say that a mere 'reaction' would NOT capture? While contrarywise... a reaction might work in cases like Dragon requests where a full blown post to a thread might be unwelcome and spammy? I dunno... personally I can see myself using them for two different things. AT said... I can understand that not everyone would view it that way. I sort of see the concerns with them... and DON'T get me wrong, I DO see the potential for abuse. BUT do keep in mind that this ISN'T Facebook. Maybe it wouldn't pan out the way people are thinking... and, honestly , the forum works well as is. Maybe we don't even need them. If we DO get them, however... it'd probably be best if they were entirely optional. like.. we have the ability to ignore signatures, yes? So why not be able to ignore such a thing, too? All told, I can live without them... but if they were added I wouldn't go so far as to say that it would necessarily drive me away, either.
  22. Thank you, Kaini. The queue gets backlogged ENOUGH without spammy descriptions...
  23. Yes, I agree. That is why I'd almost favor a combination of options... give USERS some ability to determine what they see in the AP. So long as everyone has the power... I don't see that as gamebreaking.
