  1. Thanks... That... actually helps quite a bit. Can't really find the words. Maybe not with being able to look at magis any time soon, but having someone share their perspective without forcing it & in detail, really helps with my mental state. Thank you. (Edit: the way you worded things and examples help fill up some holes and flesh out some issues, making it easier to deal with) And maybe one day I'll accept that the pancake lizards hit the gym so hard in preparation for summer that their babies became buff. 😄😊
  2. Your opinion is as subjective as mine. And your ability to see or not see something is not any more or less valid than what I see. There was no accusation on my part, only context as to why I'm more sensitive to imagery displaying ribs and a very thin waist. As my statement lacks a tone and you are the one providing it, your view of my thoughts is subjective.
  3. Take 3. I'm sorry if anyone feels offended by what I said. Shading looks fancy, lines look fancy, proportions look fancy and it's not a bad "piece of art", but it should not be a replacement for an old dragon. Let's pretend for five minutes that what I say actually matters and ignore the fact that the Magi replacement makes me "uncomfortable". For Thunder I still think that's too much shading on a pixel dragon. There is no other dragon with such sharply defined muscles; not even amongst dragons showing their back, some being female golds, holiday '12, morphodrake, red nebs, female nilia, female aria, female aeon, male pink, female autumn, skywing, male spinel, male sunrise, male swallowtail, female tri-horn wyvern... there's a lot of dragon backs out there, there's quite a few dragons with defined muscles like male aria or ash, but none of them have such overly defined muscles as thunder. My issue with the new magi design is that instead of a touch-up on proportions or linework, the dragon's belly got removed, it's ribs are now showing and it was turned into an orange greyhound? What's wrong with having a belly? Why is being skinny and buff "better" than the previous well-rounded design? I say let's pretend what I say matters, because I highly doubt it does. But with some luck, hopefully, dragons like terrae and tercorns won't have their beautiful soft colors, shading & lines replaced by a skinny, overly muscly "updated" design. Tercorns look amazing with so much detail going on (their scales, mane, whiskers, claws...) and still not being overly-decorated(? for the lack of a better word), while seemingly looking at a sunrise. Terrae have a simple design with soft and pretty colors and, unless my screen is dirty, tiny glimmers on scales. I say "updated" because new releases involve dragons like cloudplume, sapo, crystalline. Mistras with intentional hangbutt. Since when is skinny & buff a standard for dragons? There are over 200 dragons, do they all need to look the same? Dragons come in so many shapes, sizes, colors and that makes it easy for everyone to find a dragon they'll like. Please do not make "skinny & buff" a new standard for making old dragons 'better'.
  4. This just makes me sad... Magis now look underfed and overly saturated which is pretty noticeable in shallow water lineages; while thunders look so out of place and overshaded... 😦 Oh boy... this makes me fear the day all the older dragons I love for their soft colors will be turned in overly saturated muscle dragons...
  5. Happy Valentine's day & stay safe. If you're spending it alone, have fun, order yummy food, watch a movie, love yourself. ❤
  6. I'm afraid that would take the magic away. It's a special event, for people to look forward to and come together during difficult time of the year for some. If you make it a couple of times a year, every few months, every month it becomes a regular occurrence.
  7. It's my 2nd year and I was assigned a really cool santa and giftee. They were both easy to interact with, I absolutely love the dragons I was given (from both xD) & I hope I wasn't hard to deal with, while being good enough of a santa. >~< Best of whishes to you all ❤️
  8. Wow that's a lot of gifts flying around. Hope everyone got what they wanted. 😊
  9. Got a green boy for @Rissfleisch with few days to spare!! 😊 Best of luck with your eggs @banban007 !
  10. Heyo, I can try for ND, but no promises. Would you both like a ping on how it goes? @banban007 @Rissfleisch
  11. First time I'm early to the party, too bad I'm locked. 😅
  12. You get a private message by Secret Santa with the name of your giftee and their wishlist. It's a slow process as a lot of us sign up and the awesome people taking the time to run the game have to sort us all out in only a couple of days (they send out wishlists between 2nd and 5th). That was very kind of you though. ❤
  13. Someone correct me if I'm mistaken, but you cannot just be a giftee. Everyone who signs up is a gifter/giftee (except maybe people that want to exclusively be a backup santa or helper). I reccomend you read the first Secret Santa posts again as it has date marks for signup/list delivery/gifting period alongside detailed explanation how the game works. 😕
