Stupid things you've done on dc

Recommended Posts

I didn't join the forum until months after I joined DC.

Same here, although I did follow the news section closely.

I didn't even follow the news section or anything else in the forum until a few months after I joined - it took the "great lag" in March 2009 for me to start following the forums. I totally missed the valentines in 2009 because I wasn't following the forum (and I was so new I didn't realize they'd be a release).

I started playing when it wasn't too difficult to grab CB metallics. I grabbed a couple CB golds and then stopped picking them up to let others have a chance. Had I known they would soon be almost impossible to find I would have been selfish and grabbed more instead.

 

I didn't bother logging in during the Halloween event when the vampires were dropping. Except for the Hollies, no other dragon had a limited release up until that point, so it didn't even occur to me to check the site. I think I logged in again just a few hours after vampires stopped dropping. It annoyed me for the rest of the year because I loved the sprite for vampires. Then the next year rolls around and I had to spend hours staring at the AP to finally catch one. My eyeballs felt like sandpaper that day.

i once mistook the ap for a clicksite and clicked on an egg i totally didn't need

You could just abandon right away, so it doesn't really matter. But all the same, nice fail tongue.gif!

Not realizing there was a Silver on the AP until I went to the main cave. I hate myself for that, especially since my sister got a silver...!

Quitting for a year, but that wasn't the bad part . . . if that was it, I'd still be happy. The stupid part was that I thought quitting would lead to a burnt scroll and dead dragons, so I released all of my dragons in an effort to keep them alive. I had several silvers and golds on that scroll, which included caveborns, as well as several old pinks, ten chickens, at least one frill that I can remember, and two different holiday dragons.

 

I can't let myself think about it, I get so upset with myself.

Stupid things I've done:

1. I didn't grab old pinks/ CB vines/ CB blacks/ CB metallics when I first started

2. Quitting for more than a year. I missed one winter Holiday release, one Valentine, and both Halloween releases all because I couldn't figure out how to use the fan sites over the weekdays to get my eggs to survive into the weekend.

This. Same exact thing goes for me.

I've taken several breaks from dc. Despite having a scroll for two years, I don't have a single holiday (except the vampires, but that's not too hard to get). *headdesks repeatedly*

I was there for the "common" metallic age. My stupid thing, thinking that golds were ugly, and not wanting to collect hardly any when they were readily available. I stopped collecting them or breeding mine, and a year later, when they weren't breeding at all, I was stuck with three out of four being inbred, and a sudden desire to collect as many golds as I have silvers.

 

Or not looking to see who was logged in before hunting the AP. I caught an ER CB female silver hatchie... on my sister's scroll... And she froze it... She gave me a gold hatchie and an alt vine in return... But I still would have loved to have had that female CB silver. Or come to think of it, would have loved at least seeing it grow up. A frozen CB metallic is kinda sad.

Constantly scroll-locking myself by getting eggs that I reflex-click that I usually already have, and then seeing a thunder, magma, red, black, or vine in the cave. (Yes, I've seen all of those. But only when I've scroll-locked myself).

Same here, tried really hard and failed hard, and then when V-day 2010 came around failed at getting one off the AP.

Lately I've been biting and getting kills and locking myself for no good reason. ~sigh~ I don't need any more vamps.

 

I wish I hadn't missed Valentine's Day 2009... I think I was on a minor hiatus at the time.

 

I wish I had grabbed a few more CB blacks and at least one CB bright pink when they were around. Oh well. Both of my CB blacks are female. At the time I didn't want to pick up CB pinks because they were always female, and I had a girl-heavy scroll to begin with - still do.

 

I wish I had stayed up for Val10; I might have ended up with Alt Sweetlings then.

That's what everyone who was there then thinks, I just didn't anticipate it as much as Christmas so I didn't stay up.

 

Oh well, that's barely a blow to me, not a huge fan of the alt's skull instead of heart.

Not even attempting to collect old pinks when I first joined, since they were rare at the time.
