  2. Well, let's join this fabulous parade of awesome and absolutely useless stuff! What can I do (and what doesn't really help me to earn money)?.. All tested:

     

    - multiply six-figured numbers in my mind (top useless stuff, who cares about it when we have calculators at windows and cell phones? xd.png );

     

    - read a page and learn it by heart from the first/second reading (no actual need to do it, even Hollywood celebrities don't need this skill, as we can see from their movies);

     

    - solve almost any normal trigonometry or topology formula in not more than 10 minutes (yeah, a perfect ability for the one who have been hating math ever since it was invented and graduated from school long enough to have own kids since then);

     

    - dance for a couple of hours without having a rest (best is to multiply six-figured numbers in your mind at the same time, right);

     

    - drink a bottle of whiskey on my own and have some guts to walk home on foot (takes some guts, but that's what you really feel for after using the previous ability);

     

    - not to sleep for 3 days (goes perfect with continuously using of the previous one);

     

    - hold my breath for 5 minutes (this one you actually do before starting this whiskey thing);

     

    - communicate with animals better than with people (appears that people themselves are not so fond of this ability; don't know about animals, though, they never tell me);

     

    - play adoptable games at work with my boss being absolutely sure it is my job (this one can work for everyone, if you manage to get a boss who has even less ideas of what you actually should do than you);

     

    - pretend to be a lawyer dealing with the household documents, and find a mistake in real lawyer's work (not so hard again, everyone can beat a lawyer using a bit of logic);

     

    - make a good cup of coffee (this is one is truly odd... never seen anyone else capable of this);

     

    - not to draw, paint or design anything (a quick look at the internet tells me there are really few of us in the world).

     


  3. Well. To put some oil in a honey cask, I'd say that DC graphics seem to regress. Both species look like 8-bit Dendy game art (you remember this stuff, don't you?). How many colours are used for each? 6? What about rendering? What's the DPI? 75?

     

    My guess is that those are great stuff finished a couple of years ago, and just released. I mean, look at the complete requests section. There're hundreds of great pixel art models there, but the one released look a bit outdated. How could they possibly appear after Tinsels, Embers, Snow Angels and Neglecteds, Pumpkins and Black Marrows? Pixel art has gone a bit far.

     

    I don't do DC much now, but I play UniCreatures and Mystic Grove. I don't like a lot of sprites there, but their quality is pretty much always unquestionable. I might not like cupids of flying pigs, but a really nice lady at MG does all the sprites by herself in 3D, you know, and UniCreatures has just two (!) artists atm, who're doing really beautiful and very detailed adoptables. While there are dozens of spriters dying to work for DC for free, but a lot of awesome sprites are waiting forever to be released, - and when they would be released, they'd probably be outdated, too, to that moment.

     

    Ok, now you can start to rub me with the oil, and bring some candles and lighters, please.


  4. Oh yeah. My most memorable PM for a "request":

     

    During christmas, I had the awesomeness to get not one, but two hollies. I wake up the next day, and I get a PM demanding that I give this one person not one but BOTH of the hollies that I had, because they claimed to be a more "senior member" than me and that I "didn't deserve to have one holly at all, let alone two".

     

    And then I freaked out at this person and I've never seen them again. biggrin.gif

    Lol.

     

    To tell the truth, I would report such pm. That's a direct violation of DC rules.


  5. I have a lot of breeding requests (Hollies, Metalls, now prizes). However, most are quite nice, and I try to breed when I can, or explain why I can not.

     

    I also used to ask for breeding myself, and I always did it in a nice and gentle manner.

     

    Personally, I see nothing wrong in a nice and polite request. As there's nothing wrong in getting "no" as an answer: that's a game.


  6. That is pure rotfl. Reading this thread, I can't help noticing that vast majority of DC Forums community consists of two parts. One part is classic nerds (in a good sense), fond of codes, programming, Linux and Mathematics, and another is inside-oriented humanitirians fond of writing-painting-fantasy classic set, but very bad in dealing with science. Funnily enough, I can predict that some of you, guyz, might grow up into an awesome scientist or explorer, that's normal situation for scool years. Even Albert Einstein had very poor marks in Physics, so... who may know? wink.gifcool.gif


  7. What I think wasn't mentioned was how occasionally, LiT posted hatchlings or eggs are just that - posted LiT. People get upset enough to post that they're lost, and then they get viewbombed to death with 10K+ UVs. I don't think that's a coincidence, especially when it comes to the types of things posted LiT. In most viewbombing cases, it's "If I can't have it NOBODY can!" rather than a legit form of "Oh, let me help it grow."

     

    And forgive me if I'm wrong, but if someone posted LiT for something and it died, I think I'd know who I want to get burned. I mean, if I catch something I don't have to give it back. If it mysteriously dies after someone throws a ragefit at me for catching faster than them, hm, I wonder.

    Well, but even in this case it just stays an assumption. You can't burn the previous owner of the rare egg which died from the viewbombing, only because they had it before. May be we should stop the burning theme? I would rather ask T.J. to consider changing sickness regime. For example, an egg can't get sick, if it doesn't get views repeatedly 6 or more hours. Thus, you have time to wake up and fog it before it gets sick, and interrupt the view gain.

     

    EDIT: Seraphinu, the site will track that you have logged in and added some scroll. May be yours, may be not. Anyway, I insist, a normal fansite CAN"T do viewbombing, even if I put the egg everywhere.


  8. The only way I can see to have proof is to start requiring registration for fansites. And I know people don't want to have to register, but it would be very easy then to tell if someone added your scroll to a fansite without permission.

    Really? How? You should not only add registration, but synchronize Fansite accounts with the DC accounts then. Otherwise, I can post anyone's scroll, and you can't prove anything. Think about DailyDragonFix, for example: you could post anyone's eggs there.

     

    Anyway, with the stats OP mentioned, I highly doubt we're dealing with the regular fansites. That should be some sort of AutoRefresher, or Click Exchange site; normal fansites can't get such massive amount of views in a day. Thus, again, you can't do anything, but try to be cautious and save yourself.


  9. We're talking about other people adding your eggs to fansites, not someone's eggs getting sick because the user added them to a fansite.

    Yes, but just imagine you're an admin. You're manually checking IPs of scroll's visitors, like you don't have other things to do. How would you make difference between a person who once visited the scroll, copied codes and posted them elsewhere and a person who clicked the egg from the fansite? I don't think the OP wasn't using the fansites at all, right? That is that - you can't prove anything, so burning scrolls is probably a very bad idea.

     

    EDIT: It makes me worry a bit, how members would like to punish and punish; that doesn't look good. The best I can advice is keeping your eggs fogged, and er them manually, at least, if you suspect smb is trying to kill them intentionally.


  10. I doubt TJ can or will bother to check all th IPs who visited your scroll. If YOU put your eggs on fansites, that is YOU who have all the responsibility (you can just run them to er, and then actually er, right?). Just imagine how many users clicked your pretty eggs, while they were on the fansites. You want to burn all of them, or just a half? wink.gif Remember, TJ can't check what the user who once visited your scroll did at any other sites (where they probably posted it).

     

    I really understand your frustration, and I'm sorry for your egg/hatchie, but it's not a method to solve the problem. I don't think anything can actually be done, unless TJ will remove sickness at all. My opinion: we need less "burn them!" arguments, that's just a game after all.


  11. Am i the only one to think that Pillows look original and well done, while Swallowtails look... well, old and a bit outdated? The concept is great, but the sprite itself looks very simple and schematic to me, like it was done in Paint, when all just began and nobody had great skills in spriting. Perhaps, it's one of the oldest dragons from the waiting list.

     

    And here lies the problem: if it was done 3 years ago, it was great for that time, but now we have much more difficult and complicated sprites, since the graphics itself changed with time. So, it's like to compare good old Tom & Jerry with Shrek 3D.


  12. I think I had either 9 or 11 when I was splashing and got my badge (I now have over 20). We had someone in this thread who actually got their badge with just one so it is possible but just takes longer.

    Yup, I got mine with 3 Shallow Waters. Took about 3 months.


  13. I think that way is far too complex - what about a dragon which was frantic to fight one whose owner was on vacation in Switzerland.... biggrin.gif

     

    ETA and as to extra clicks and the like - I think most people in this thread have said that if this were to happen, it should NOT confer ANY benefits in the REAL game of this site - which is a collecting game. No-one should feel they need to take part in something they really hate or they will lose out in the real game.

    I agree with this. I support battling, as an additional fun, but I don't want it to offer any benefits regular player can't achieve. Is must be absolutely wilful, thus, the players who don't want to battle might even forget such option exists; it shouldn't affect them in any way.

     

    I still think Mystic Grove example is good. There would be enough battle fans to have our own tops, ranking, etc, there's no need to mix it with the common playing style.

     

    Just a curious question - what if battling was a completely unofficial thing hosted on a different site, just owned and operated by TJ? owo

     

    As long as it interacts with DC (I mean, uses my own dragons, not their copies), this sounds as a very good idea. Really.


  14. But why do we need it at all ? This is a collectibles site. There are loads of battling sites. There is a reason some of us are here and not on ANY of those ! It's because - here is NOT a battling site ! If it became a significant part of the cave I think many players would lose interest.

    Yes, but many other players who find DC too boring now will be attracted. It doesn't matter who plays the game, as soon as anybody is playing. One quit, another comes, it happens here and there.

     

    T.J. stated he considers this idea, and isn't completely against it. Also, there are members who appreciate it, and would like it. We're just trying to find a suitable way, that it wouldn't harm or affect those who don't want battles in the first place. In my example you can play the game without even knowing that battles happen. Remember, DC has no certain way of playing, each player decides their own goals and style. So, battles, if properly thought over, would just add more freedom to the playstyles.


  15. I play another adoptable game, The Mystic Grove. That’s how battling aspect is organized there:

     

    First, I can send some of my companions to the war. I choose which I would like to send, and send them. They bring me gold pieces that I can use for buying different weapon and armor / spells and potions for faster growing / trinkets (just funny stuff). Also, I can decide not to send any, since normally I can earn even more gold pieces just by clicking others' companions helping them to grow. So, no extra benefits.

     

    Second, sometimes enemies do attack our homeland. Player’s tree (equal to DC scroll) is divided into several rooms. There is one room, Tree of Life, and companions residing there participate in a battle, if attack happens. They can be injured and even killed, but they can get some trophies as well (mainly gold, extra gems (equal to DC eggs), items). I can decide to place only common unvaluable companions there (which I have tons of), or if I don't want any of my companions to die, I just don't place any of them in this room. All other rooms are safe from attack.

     

    So, the battle process is fully controlled by the player: you can spend all your time battling, or decide to ignore such option at all, or you can even find a personal mix that you feel comfortable with.

     

    I don't really think DC should go the same way, but you see, this system is very well thought over, and it would be good to learn from existing experience. I do really think battle should be willful as an option, and probably have some customs to choose.
