  1. So I picked up two blue Baikalas from the Jungle on the first day, before they became strictly coastal (if I'm understanding what happened right). Since then, I've bred that pair twice, and both times, they've produced brown Baikala offspring. The blue Baikala pair I got from the coast has produced blue offspring and my brown pairs have only produced brown so far, so I'm not sure if it's a glitch, or if this is normal. Anyone know?
  2. Chrome has been having hissyfits about how "unsafe" the DC forum is now. I pulled up "view source" because, usually when it has a hissy fit, it's about a site using "http" instead of "https" in the links, and that's exactly it; this page alone was dinged as having 197 "http" tags, most of them associated with images. I imagine a lot of them apply to signature images (looks like I need to update mine, too, LOL!), but the very first one that got dinged was embedded in the Body tag and related to a site called "schema.org." Anyone whose browser settings are completely suppressing "unsafe" http tags may be getting blank pages because of the one in the body tag, and those of us who turned off that suppression are getting "this content is unsafe" warnings with the content. You'll definitely want to update the tags related to schema.org, and maybe it would be possible to insert a quick-and-dirty text-replacement script to turn any http link to https within signatures and forum posts (the way anyone typing "alot" ended up with a tiny little monster gif -- which I loved and now miss) to fix most of the rest.
  3. I just noticed a slight bug in the Sinomorph encyclopedia entry. I currently have a shadow instead of an image of the Sinomorph, but the page says that I will unlock the image after owning 3 or observing 15, which is standard... except that I own 4, and the page says I own 0.
  4. I'm suddenly getting "an error has occurred" messages when I click on pretty much anything.
  5. Given the timing of most releases, there may be a lot of players who only begin checking today. I only realized it was happening (a few hours after it started) because of the Facebook announcement; I tend to be more casual about my visits to DC during the week.
  6. There seems to be a problem with updating. In Help topics the other day, people were talking about how several fan sites couldn't access DC at all, but I noticed that something else was going on with the sites that could, including AoND. We're getting a lot of sickness, especially in ER'd eggs. It's like, when they hatch, they keep accumulating views so rapidly that the hatchies get sick and die, even though they hadn't even a few days ago. When I went to AoND tonight to ER an egg, I noticed almost a dozen tombstones among the ER eggs, and all of them were hatchies that died of sickness. It looks like something in the site needs adjusting, or using the ER is going to be pretty dangerous for people. (And it looks like it might have to do with a change of some kind in the API, not sure though. The help thread now has "answered" after it, but that only seems to be about the sites that could no longer communicate with DC at all.)
  7. Or not at all? It's getting to the point where I don't even want to bother with the AP. I wish there was some mechanism that would boot eggs to the wilderness if their breed is overrepresented on the AP, because ANY breed becomes undesirable when there are several dozen of them preventing you from seeing anything else.
  8. My housemate and I have been trying for the last half hour to use it, and we can't get in. It keeps telling us that DC is laggy, and just not loading. Which is a problem because I have ER'd eggs that I need to take off now that they've hatched, and I'm worried they could end up developing sickness if they stay in the ER. Edit: this is the specific message we get every time:
  9. Ack, only four hours into the event and other eggs are starting to mix in -- at least, I clicked on an egg at the start of the hour and realized to my dismay that I'd picked up a Hellfire. I guess these are going to be rares.
  10. So my housemate is playing the game, and he got past the spider but can't seem to figure out the command he needs to use to leave the sandy cave and enter the forest. Any hints?
  11. Ack, when I went into my house today after finishing the game, all of the furniture had moved around, and several pieces refused to move back where I put them. What got changed and why?
  12. This is really frustrating. I have restarted and reloaded the game so many times it's ridiculous. I even rebooted my computer. And I still can't get Avery to say word 1 to me about today's quest. Why is the game so buggy this year? I'm starting to feel like I'm doing chores instead of playing a game.
  13. Ah... okay, so even though I hadn't completed the side games, the main story quest was done so everything was "complete." Good to know. I wish there was something that signaled that, because I thought that all of the check-marks vanishing (especially the one on the book, which I guess signifies the story quest) meant I'd lost all of the ground I'd gained. But it looks like it also means that every day we have to herd cats again? (And, apparently, in my quest to complete the tasks I thought had been deleted from my history, I did everything and will have to wait another 23 hours to have more to do?)
  14. Okay, NEW glitch. I came back after thinking I'd done everything today only to find that the game seems to have reset itself and added a new quest. Okay, I figure I can do them all again. I do. Then I go to do the sixth quest. Get it done. THEN the check-marks for all the OTHER quests disappear as if I hadn't already done them TWICE. All I wanted to do was finish things so I could progress onto Day 2 when it began, but instead I'm stuck in an infinite loop. I hope that this will be fixed too?
  15. So, anyone else having this problem? I can arrange furniture as much as I want, but if I walk out of the house and then go back inside, it's gone. (My window also appears to be sitting on the floor rather than actually in the wall.)
  16. Oooh, a "Twelve Days of Christmas" type event! I am excited. And as a grad student, this is a much better schedule for me, since it will start/end while I'm actually on break. Thank you, TJ!
  17. I got this gorgeous fellow a week after I joined DC. I had no idea at the time just how special he was or how rare CB silvers would become. A few months later, TJ adjusted the ratios for golds and silvers, because they were dropping a little too frequently. I miss having a smaller pool of breeds to draw from, sometimes, just because it feels like a lot of the really special dragons are now completely lost in the throng.
  18. The "Eggs Around the World" fansite (which has no forum thread of its own) appears to be down. At least, when I go there, I'm getting a "403 Forbidden (nginx)" page instead of an actual website.
  19. Ack! I only just discovered that this release had happened! It'll be a few hours before I can catch more than one of them. *crosses fingers that they won't become hard-to-get anytime soon!* I could have sworn that nothing new was coming out until after the holidays.
  20. What happened to the infected eggs/hatchies? I can still see which of my dragons are infected, but when I decided to save the sprites, I discovered that I couldn't see infected dragons on other people's scrolls (so if I didn't have a certain infected sprite on my own scroll, I was out of luck). Now, until a few hours ago, I WAS seeing infected eggs and hatchlings on the different hatchery sites, but now they've all vanished. Kind of a bummer. I was hoping to get to see some infected zombies and neglecteds, which I don't have any of my own of. Editing to add: And now I can see infected dragons on other people's scrolls, but still not in the hatcheries.
  21. I just noticed that, when I'm on the "Viewing Dragon" page for a gemshard, there is no link to their entry in the Dragonopedia. Since I've owned 90 gemshard eggs, 63 hatchlings, and 33 adults since the dragonopedia went live, I know it can't just be because I haven't seen/owned enough of the breed. Glitch? Editing to add: the same appears to be true of the stripes.
  22. So after you get the "day over" message, that's it, right? Because my little guy is wandering around but aside from watering his tree there doesn't seem to be anything he can really do. Just want to make sure I really completed the adventure and didn't miss anything.
  23. Looks like whatever it is, it eventually does clear off when it's really time for the next treat to appear. In the meantime, it just keeps showing me the treat. Not sure if my OS/version of safari/etc might play a role. I have Mavericks, Safari 7.1.6 (I tried 8, disliked it, am avoiding having to try it again), and the no-ad subscription. But it doesn't loo like it's stopping me from collecting treats, so I'll just put up with the ones I've already collected hanging out for a while.
  24. Is anyone else having trouble with the trick-or-treating game? I keep getting the same items over and over and over again. They won't go away. I logged out and came back in and it's still doing it. After a while, it switched, so I now have three items, but it's really frustrating to see that spider over and over again. I already caught him! *swats at him*
