  1. Not DC related but I need to rant:

     

    So over on DA I joined a group as an admin and got bombarded with current drama and alleged death threats towards people and a lot of harassment and call-out posts. I stepped up, being the only member of the staff to do so, and resolved it. (Caused by the old founder)

     

    I log on today and see I'm no longer a part of the group. The original founder sold their spot as the founder to their sibling, who didn't believe I "earned my right to be an admin" or something. I am now currently trying to prove that yes, me and the original founder came to an agreement and that yes, I am allowed to be an admin.

    I am currently waiting for them to answer :/

     

    Edit; so now I have to hecking pay for my place, this is great.

    I forgot I was egglocked last night and missed a caveborn copper :/

    Then unsubscribe to it? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

     

    I wish more people would thank others for their gifts, rather than just snatching them and running away. I've thrown some really nice things in there and not one word. Yes, I don't gift for the satisfaction of a "thanks"; but isn't it common courtesy to say your "Please"s and "Thank You"s, or has respect gone completely out the window in recent years? I can't even get a "Thanks" in real life. Ffs.

     

     

    See, I'm subscribed to it because I like to see what others post. If I take something, I usually thank whoever I took it from through a PM, but if I have some eggs or hatchlings I'm putting up, I'll do it in a post. I understand how being thanked is nice, but it's just as easy to send a PM as posting on the board.


  3. I wish my stupid cursor would move when I see a rare egg in the cave or AP.

    (my cursor has a nasty habit of freezing when I need it)

     

    I'd also like if 1)dead eggs didn't count as an egg at all and 2)unlimited egg slots. unu

    If you raised them before the encyclopedia was released they will not have been counted.

    Ooooh, that makes sense.

     

    Honestly I thought that the encyclopedia was here longer than it has been. I just got back into DC this year, the last time before that was in 2010 so I'm not too sure what has happened between then and now X'C

    Thank you!


  5. Congrats to the winners!

     

    Personally, I feel like dragons won shouldn't be able to be traded OR "exchanged" or "swapped" or whatever. Now, people may scream "that's unfair, what if A is willing to swap X-Dragon with B for Y-Dragon! They should be able to do that!"

     

    No. Entering a raffle is agreeing to win random prize, if one is won at all. You don't get to pick and choose your prize, because that's not what you agreed to.

    Don't like those rules? Don't enter, or don't take the prize and try again the next month. Simple as that.

     

    If you win a bronze medal in, lets say, Swimming in the olympics, you can't trade it for a silver in Cross-Country because "that's the one you want." It's not how it works. You get the prize you get, and if you don't like it, well, either don't take it at all, or abandon it for someone else to take it.

    "The salty water mists over your face as you weave and roll through the pod of Thunderdrums. You glide effortlessly over the water, staring down at your reflections shining in the azure waves. It's an unnaturally warm summer for Berk, extremely humid and balmy. Normally, summers are cool at best, never getting much warmer than warm, and in certain places and islands dotted around the Archipelago, snow can still be found whitening the landscape. You quickly make your way back to the village, you shouldn't be late! It's time for the Festival!"

    "It's been 5 years since Drago Bludvist's attack on Berk, and today marks the Summer festival celebrating the Victory. You, as well as the other Berkians- and your dragons, of course- are excited to celebrate, as you've all be preparing for this week the entire month. As your dragon's feet land back on the ground, and you slide off the saddle, feet landing on the rock with a soft noise. You lay a hand on your dragons head, and it coos, pressing it's snout deeper into your flesh, wanting pets. You absentmindedly scratch it as you make your way through the decorated village, raising your unused hand in greeting to your other Vikings you pass. Everyone's waiting for the pride of Berk, Hiccup, and his trusty right-hand dragon, Toothless, to make their speech later on, signaling the start of the festivities. For now, however, you have a little time to kill."

    "The time has finally come for the speech to be made. Everyone is in the village square, squinting up at the sky, awaiting the arrival of the Chief, Alpha, and their Riders. The day has only grown hotter, and you're covered in an unusual layer of sweat as you wait. Muttering starts up, Vikings turning towards their neighbors and talking amongst themselves, asking questions and cursing. 'Dae yeh think they've forgo'on?' Someone next to you laughs, but it's forced, uneasy.

    'Nae. Hic'up wou'nt forge' abou' this,' another one answers, rubbing his head. 'I 'ope.'

    You look at your dragon, and you both have the same though. What if something bad happened.


  7. I'll be breeding my upside down egg soon. Would anyone like the egg? It probably won't be upside down, but it'll still be a G2 mint from a rare and an upside down mint?

     

    And I actually really don't like how only a couple people got them. I was kind of hoping for them to grow up and become normal, or the "normal" mint eggs to be something special.


  8. I blamed the other person, who stayed silent. I got an upside down mint dragon (I'll add a picture as proof when I'm off my phone)

     

    I actually was extremely confused about why it was upside down until I looked at the time and I realized it was, in fact, April Fools Day.

     

    I'm excited to see if its a normal Mint Dragon or not. if I this, I needed another, anyway. If not, that would be something!


  9. So, I was thinking

     

    Dragons are identified by their Random ID instead of their actual names, and two dragons on the site cannot have the same name.

     

    Maybe dragons could have the same name? I would've liked to have a serious scroll, with actual names, but everything I could think of was taken.

     

    The dragons are identified by their rID anyway, so it wouldn't actually matter if two dragons had the same name?

     

    I feel like this would ease up on the hair-pulling trying to think of creative names only to have it used already causes.


  10. The eggs are not found on the forum.  There is a 12 minute cool down period after you find your first egg.  You can just refresh that screen in 12 minutes and another egg will appear.

    Thank you!
