    Yeah, just don't have a need for a desktop in my house. We had one, but we never used it, so we sold it. 

     

    The mobile way is tedious, but if it's the only way, then oh well. Lol

    Yeah... and BECAUSE there ARE those that primarily... or even ONLY... use mobile, it would be nice if sorting worked more smoothly there.

    I will preface this with I don't use mobile terribly often, so I could have missed something. However, I tried everything I can think of to multi-select dragons to add to a group: double-tap, hold tap, tapping multiple in succession, tapping two dragons at once, tap and drag. Nothing worked, so I do not believe there is a way to multi-select on mobile, unless I missed something.

    On computer to select multiple is ctrl+click or shift+click, and I would have thought that hold-tap on a phone would be able to have a similar functionality, but it did not. I also did some searching on the forum and did not find an answer.

     

    Looks like you may have to add them individually unless you're able to get access to a computer, sorry. :(

     

    It may be easiest to add each dragon from their view page after you've created your group. Have your scroll open in one tab and open each dragon you need in a different tab, add to group, then close that tab. It will still be pretty tedious but maybe a little quicker than through the add to group page. Good luck!

    Yeah... when I want to group/ sort dragons, I generally don't use my mobile devices... fine for HUNTING and HATCHING but... a pain for  sorting. :) Just my observation.

    THOUGH I should clarify that with I don't FREQUENTLY use my mobile to access this site, so I MAY just not know how.

    I don't think this would be possible unless we had to select 2 dragons for the bsa to take affect. That is, select BSA, select dragon 1, select dragon 2 (possibly excluding all dragons unbreedable to dragon 1 to avoid silly things like "encouraging" 2 males or a regular and a drake together).

    Hmmmm... valid points. I ACTUALLY sort of like your take on how this might work.

     

    Including the it only works if said dragon is already breedable with said dragon bit.

    The thing is that we usually use a BSA on the target dragon. So, if we breed water x skywing and use this on the skywing, the chances for a skywing egg are enhanced. However, we don't have a target for the third option (bluna). It might be coded to work for hybrids if both parents are targeted. However, this wouldn't work for color choice on PB stripes, or color choice on any other breed.

    I envisioned this as... targeting the PROBABILITY, rather than the dragon itself, I guess? Which would work something like... using the BSA on a dragon triggers a drop down when you breed of the different breeds that could result. I grant you, however, that this might be a bit more complicated to work out!

     

    I also see your point about colors.... since often THOSE are influenced by other things than just random chance ( The breeds of the other parent , for instance!)


  5. 1 hour ago, olympe said:

    @UnicornMaiden I was more concerned with influencing for hybrids from the parent breeds (if applicable), so should you be able to influence pro-Bluna if you breed Skywing x Water?

    I don't see why that COULDN'T be a possibility. It IS ,after all, a legitimate possibility with that pairing. :)

    if I had to come up with a unique solution it would be

    If a wall contains more then n% of a singular breed, a 6th line will appear in the AP at the 5 min refreshes, that does not contain that breed and utilizing the current first come first serve rules. The moment that the n% isn't hit, that line disappears at the next 5min refresh used in the biomes. This will still allow for the benefits of walls, as well as allow variety for those who don't care for the current wall up.

    This way,

    mass breeders can still mass breed and their eggs still be displayed

    those who don't like the walls still get a variety that they can look through

    eggs aren't lost to the void

    there is no imposed limits on a breeder or a breed.

    Basically I don't know if we NEED a solution BUT... of the ones I have seen I like this idea best.

    Beauty of it IS that it could be applied to holidays as well and then people that didn't want to holiday hunt could look through the other stuff to see what they could find.

    I support doing nothing to the programming of the AP. I feel that mass breeding does not cause any problems, does help, and that changing the way the AP works will alter the very nature of the AP. 

     

    However, mass breeding has 2 primary causes: 

    1. The AP gets too high in time, so people mass breed to drive the AP down in time

    2. People want to form a wall for some other reason. 

     

    Now, in the case of 1, if the time in the AP is low, then they won't get formed. In the case of 2, if the time in the AP is low then the wall can be cleared pretty fast. In either case, the player-driven solution is to keep the time in the AP low. The time in the AP rises when there are more people wanting eggs from the AP than there are eggs bred. So the easy solution is to breed more eggs. If a few dozen people bred 10 eggs each to the AP every day, that should work to drive down the AP times and keep walls from sticking around much. Checkers are often much desired, too. 

     

    So.... I'd support (and probably even participate in, some) a thread where people did just that: Organized to breed a dozen nice commons to the AP every day, with the specific goal of keeping the AP time down. 

     

    Cheers!

    I MOSTLY like theis suggestion.

     

    My ONLY gripe is that, for myself, personally... I like to have the ability to use BSAs ( like... Influence , for example) AND if the Time lof the Eggs in the AP gets TOO low, you really can't.

    Fact. i am actually less likely to pick up an egg if I KNOW I can't influence it. I would guess I am not alone in that feeling.

    yeah, it would have to be. Night mode is generally a dark skin selection you can keep on night or day - I leave night mode on on most sites because of photo sensitivity. It would have to be optional.

     

    I'd like just a single night mode option. Yesterday's migraine was really rough,I had to go find total darkness.

    Yeah... I would envision this acting like that 'blue-light' mode on my my pad which I can turn on and off at will. Not the colors it produces necessarily but that one could toggle it on or off.

     

    As to the idea itself... I see no issue with it. :) 

     

    I don't suffer from migraines myself but for those that do I see how it could be helpful, and for those that don't... at night it still might be useful?

    Ah, so sad.😥

    But I won't be overly stressed about it.  I still have the trading forums and Discord. 

     

    One note though, there should definitely be a meter for trading infractions.  At least others would have a visual gauge to go by.  It might help them reconsider there actions before doing something stupid, like me.  Oh well...

    Hmmm...I wonder WHY we DON't have a meter or some such like that, actually, we DO have the ability to see our warn level on the forums, here, for example. I would think that something like that ought to go for the market, too... especially given that we CAN be permabanned. A possible subject for a suggestion thread, perhaps?

    (This isn't only meant for HeatherMarie, I just quoted this because it gave me the start for my own line of thinking.)

     

    Just to add another perspective: There actually is more to it in this context than just expressing opinion.

    The creators of new dragons here at DC "work" for free. The only reward they get for all their work is a. seeing their dragon in cave and b. the appreciation of the other users. So, while I can't speak for everyone, I guess people that express positive/happy/etc reactions do this not only to give their opinion to the world at large, they also do it to let the creators of the dragon know how much they appreciate their work, and that said work made them feel positive in some way.

    So, uttering opinions in public spaces like this might usually be for its own sake, because people like to let their opinion be known, and find others that share it. (Talking about pure opinion here, not feedback or criticism.) But when the people who made the thing that the opinion is about are "in the room" (reading the thread), it gets another level - it will serve as a reward or a rebuke to them. And that's what giving that opinion will "accomplish" in this case.

     

    And that's also where I'd ask anyone who wants to express a negative opinion to do so in a polite, non-hurtful way. Humans are social beings, they are designed to care about their social environment and the signals it is sending. (More or less, depending on the circumstances, but in essence that's how it is.) So yes, you always should exercise circumspection when giving out negative things to people who didn't do anything to you out of malice. If someone designed a dragon to share it with everyone, and you don't like it, well, that's sad, but they didn't do anything to you, so you have no right to do anything to them. You can of course still express your own disappointment/frustration/sadness/whatever, but you should word it in a way that doesn't spread the grief.

     

    All of this, actually.

     

    No one is saying you have to LOVE every sprite or that it isn't OK to have favorites or 'not-so-favorites'. I myself DEFINITELY have some sprites that I prefer over others. That is perfectly normal and natural. NOT every new dragon is going to become a 'I MUST hoard that' grade favorite for you personally.Thing is, A person has to remember that NOT everyone's taste is the same as theirs, first of all.... and we DO need to keep in mind the feelings involved. People ARE sort of attached emotionally to the art they create, like it and agree with it or not.  That also seems to be human nature. The beauty of this game is that if there is a sprite that isn't a favorite of yours... you DON'T have to collect it. That is your right, just as it is mine.


  11. I am having trouble with signing up for Discord. 

     

    I can't seem to find my confirmation email... and I checked both my regular inbox AND my spam. Anybody have any ideas WHAT might be going on or how to fix?


  12. I could see this... ESPECIALLY IF Prizes were also available in the Market and you could save up those Consolation prizes toward s a purchase of one, someday. 

    Since they are currently NOT...well, I can see both sides of this arguement. No strong eelings one way or the other from me.notopposed but not STRONGLY in favor of either. THOUGH yu could still spend those extra shards on other dragons, I suppose...

    Big fat no to scroll username history access again. IDs do all the job. It's nothing but nosy to demand that acces when you have IDs. The game itself allows no communication unlike forums, so scrollname history access is TOTALLY unexcused, again, especially with scroll IDs.

    DO our scrolls currently have IDs? If they DO then perhaps that would be the way to go.

     

    It would need to be made visible in some way  As I am not even sure HOW to find the ID number for my scroll if it has one.

    At said, it IS true that the forums are different in that they DO sort of require direct interaction with others ( That is sort of their point!) while one's scroll doesn't and , indeed doesn't allow it!

    My only concern IS that a mixed up mess of numbers might be harder to remember than a name.


  14. I fail to see why this couldn't WORK in a manner similar to the way the name changing on forums.

     

    You can change the name, but previous names are still visible/accessible to others for ID?

    I could ALSO see something like a scroll ID number working well, too. THIS could EVEN be shown on the hub. ( Possibly in place of the scroll name?)

    I'd be fine with the thing at the top of our scroll - just total growing things. But separating out the eggs - even better. Doesn't need the extra words, just the numbers.

     

    And I would also want it for the AP - where I WISH we had the biomes linked at the top, and I wish the biome pages included a like to the AP...

    Yep, and actually being able to see BOTH total growing things AND eggs would be helpful on our scrolls as well, I think.

    I support this idea. Would be helpful with new releases and such especially.... NOT having to go back to our scroll to see how many slots we still have for catching. ;)

    Gender... I'm not 100% sure. I mean, biologically, I'm definitely female. But I also express some typically male traits. Like (sometimes excessive) body hair in places where only males should have it. Also, my way of thinking is pretty stereotypical male, and I've fought against being put into the female gender stereotype box pretty much since early youth. Does that make me queer?

    Hmmm... I guess I can say that I have always identified myself as a female, ALTHOUGH I can sort of relate to what you wrote.

     

    Interesting question.

     

    I guess, myself,I always put it up to stereotypes NOT being accurate.

    This is what I am thinking too. XD I can imagine this pair using their combined abilities to make all sorts of mischief!

    Imagine:

     

    You run a grocery store. Now, this store is known for it full-sized hams. These hams are gorgeous—honey-cured, meaty goodness, and you make a good buck off them.

     

    Then, one day, it happens: you walk into the store and your entire stock is gone. So you vow to find the culprit and stay in the store overnight.

     

    You hide in a nearby aisle and keep an eye on the hams. However, you begin to drift off to sleep. But just before you’re completely out, you hear a VWOOP sound and some rustling around.

     

    Immediately you bolt upright. The hams, you think to yourself in a nervous sweat. You tiptoe around the edge of the aisle, and that’s when you see it:

     

    A portal pops up. The head of a riftwyrm emerges. It swallows a ham whole. And then it pops back into the portal and disappears.

     

    And then the portal reappears, only slightly further down, and out pops the riftwyrm—is it the same one or another? You really can’t tell.

     

    You have no idea what you’re going to do, but you swear on the fallen hams that you will have vengeance.

     

    ...and that is why I love riftwyrms and am hella excited for lore implications.

    AND THIS... tee-hee-hee! I am going to have fun describing these guys.  SHOPLIFTING Riftwyrms and cranky green dragons. I LOVE it XDDDDDD

    I can't WAIT to see what I can come up with.... BTW! Am I the only one that thinks the rifts will look good in lineages with Arcanae?

    Were discussing reworking it. But if you really want to nitpick everything I am saying that badly, then I clearly cannot stop you from doing so. 

     

    The system is clearly not working for the users and mods involved, but you're determined to dig your heels in and insist it's fine regardless of who says what. Adding more mods isn't a solution for a fundamentally resource intensive system, it's a bandaid. 

    WELL, and Fuzz is right in that any ideas we come up with are going to have to get passed TJ's approval. ALWAYS an 'if'.

     

    That being said, I DO agree with you on improvement being possible here. :) We just need to know what TJ is WILLING to change. 


  20. Honestly... I have just had to learn to be patient. Yes, it is sad to see your descrips pending for months at a time. 

    I hate to complain because I KNOW there is often a massive pile of descrips waiting for our mods' attention.

    Thing is... I enjoy doing them enough that for me , it is worth it.

     

    At said, I can say I would be happy to see our system for getting them through improved. As it is, I KNOW the thing puts a lot of pressure on our mods, and I think more mods... including some whose sole responsibility was to address descrip concerns... might be beneficial. I could also see Fuzz's idea of a filter of some kind and sanctions against using descrips for those that abuse it too often ( we already do the second for names and for 'wants' in the trading hub, for example, so it CAN be done.) I could also see the idea of user 'accepts' pushing a descrip up the line? MIGHT give people more incentive to go on there and review. I am not SURE how I feel about too many 'recjects' wiping a descrip and making you do over. That is SIMPLY because sometimes people reject without giving you ANY reason why... and if you had an unpopular user, I could see people rejecting and wiping their stuff purely because they could. Maybe too many rejects  would also call a mods' attention? Weed out some of the worst ones THAT way? While avoiding the possibility for abuse with it?
