FOR GIFTERS (AKA People Giving Gifts)

GENERAL INFO

  • Anyone may gift and sign up with their birthday.
  • You may gift to anyone who has followed the rules, complied with the tiers, and included the answer to the instruction from the Rules.
  • You may gift at any time during the month. A gift does not have to be gifted on their birthday.
  • You may gift anything you want that fulfills the recipient's wishes. In the case of surprises, you may even gift items that may not be requested, like low-tier items, new releases, etc.
  • Donors are what makes this thread possible. Please consider donating a gift today!

 
REPORTING GIFTS
ONLY ONE person should announce the gift has been offered. This makes it easier to update.
Use forum names under gifter/giftee.
Be sure to include the ACTUAL lineage link and not just the code #s. It makes it easier to update.

 

To input the gift's code, copy it, highlight "CODE" in the form, and click the link icon in the menu. Replace both "CODE"s in the prompt with the gift's code.

FOR GIFTEES (AKA People Receiving Birthday Gifts)

HOW TO SIGN UP

  • First be sure that you’ve read the rules below and understand the terms.
  • Fill out the SIGN UP FORM farther down this post. Do not edit the fields in the form, and DO NOT forget to answer every question. Make sure you follow the directions for the tiers.
  • If your sign-up or update wasn't very recent, you will receive a check-in message from a mod just before your birthday month. You will need to reply to it or post an update by the date given. Failure to show that you are active will result in your list not being added for the month.
  • Be ready to receive gifts the month of your birthday. A gifter is not required to hold them if you are locked. You will have 24 hours to respond and collect your gift. Gifters may wait longer if they choose, but they are not expected to hold them beyond 24 hours.

RULES

  • Keep all posts relevant to the thread.
  • Gifts may not be traded, released, or killed. If you intend to freeze your gift, please specify in your request.
  • Gifts must go to the person signing up in the thread. If the person does not have an account, please specify when signing up.
  • You have 24 hours to respond/pick up your gift. Failure to comply will result in being graylisted, and a second failure will result in removal from the official list.
  • Repeated violations of the rules will result in being blacklisted. Tell me your favorite dragon(s) somewhere in your sign-up post so I know you read the rules. (If your favorite breed is among the items in your wish list, please make sure to point out that's your favorite.)
  • Do not beg for a gift or PM anyone directly asking for a gift.
  • Post your request ONCE. If you need to update it and you have not been added to the main list (AKA an update hasn’t been run by the mod yet), EDIT the request directly instead of posting again. If an update has been run, please fill out the UPDATE form.
  • Once your birthday month has begun and your list has been approved, please do not change your wish list repeatedly, since this is confusing to other users. If you only want one of something, we suggest linking to an updated wish list instead.
  • If you need to be away sometime during your birthday month or won't be able to check messages once a day, please mention in a post/your signature.
  • You are expected to take any gift offered to you.
  • Remember to thank your gifter!


WISH LIST OPTIONS AND TIERS


REQUESTING

  • Holiday requests are not allowed, even if your birthday is in February, October, or December. You may request non-holiday offspring from holiday parents.
  • 2nd gens from Thuweds or Dorkfaces are not allowed. Higher gens are permitted.
  • Be wary of requesting new releases. You may request them, but if it's later decided a new breed belongs in one of the higher tiers, its new place will be announced, and lists submitted henceforth must adhere to the tiers.
  • Hatchling requests are allowed, but remember that we're gifting out of the goodness of our hearts. Some gifters may not like to hatch an egg for you.
  • If you intend to freeze your gift, please specify that in your wish list.
  • Remember that gifters are doing this out of the goodness of their hearts! As such, it is IMPORTANT to make sure there are a variety of dragon rarities in your wish list. Be sure to follow the tier system.


HOW TO USE THE TIER SYSTEM
The numbered rows in the forms correspond to tier levels.
You may choose things of lesser value / from farther down the line as well. For example, for tier 2, you may select something from or of equal value to tier 3 or 4, but not something from tier 1.
You may also list "surprise me" or link to a wish list (if it has a variety of common, uncommon, and rare items) to your post.

Tier 3 and 4 are kind of interchangeable but are written out here to encourage diversity in your wish list.

 

TIER 1

Select an item here for row 1. Alternatively, pick items from any of the tiers below this one to fill this row

Option 1: CB Gold; CB Silver; CB Coppers; CB Staterae Xenowyrm; 2nd-3rd gen Prize; Neglected; 2g from Spriter's Alt

 

TIER 2

Select an item here for row 2. Alternatively, pick items from any of the tiers below this one to fill this row

Option 2: CB Zyumorphs; CB Aeon Wyvern; CB Trio: Ice, Magma, Thunder; CB Xenowyrms; Unbreedables; CB Almandine/Spessartine Pyralspite; CB Golden Wyvern; CB Red Dorsal; CB Tan Ridgewing; Alt Black, Alt Dark Green, Alt Undine (any gen.); 3g from Spriter's Alt; 2nd gen metals from nonmetal mate; 4th gen Prize

 

TIER 3

These items can go in row 3a and 3b or any rows above.

Option 3a and 3b: Anything with a lineage. Be as specific as you want. Includes: 3rd gen metals; 2nd gen or higher items from Tier 2; 5th+ gen Prizes

 

TIER 4

These items can go in row 4a and 4b or any rows above.

Option 4a and 4b: A hatchling or CB egg that is not listed in the tiers above


If something is not listed here, consider its closest equivalent to determine its level in the tiers. Please remember that gifts are set up this way so that there are things on your list that are likely to be gifted to you.

  • Neglected
  • 3G from any Spriter's Alt
  • Alternating colour lineages (Ex. 1 | 2 | 3)
  • 2G Hybrids
  • CB Drakes
  • Surprise me!

 

 

Starscream (scroll: StarScream) 6th message

BreRo (scroll: Panther Jaggerjack) 14th message

  • 2g from Spriter's Alt
  • 3g from Spriter's Alt
  • 3g or higher Thuwed checker
  • any completed lyrical lineage
  • cb Black Truffle
  • cb Balloon

 

 

sweetthing (scroll: sweetthing) 14th message

  • 2nd-3rd gen Prize
  • 3g from Spriter's Alt
  • Surprise me (any gen -- Holly and Sweetling dragons are my favorite followed by tinsels, blusang and green copper).

  • CB Sunsong Amphitere, CB Pargulus Pygmies

 

 

HopeUnbroken (scroll: Naturewatcher) 28th message

  • CB Staterae Xenowyrm
  • 3G+ from Spriter's Alt (don't mind how long the lineage is, so long as it's neat.)

  • 3G Blusang x Falconiform (mate for him)
  • Any CB or pretty lineages from new-ish releases (I'm missing most breeds since 2019).
  • A cool rainbow lineage?

Announcements

 

 

December 8, 2015 - Dirtytabs is the new secondary mod.

March 24, 2015 - Tier gifting system approved and added to main list. Gift requests are reopen in thread.

March 3rd, 2015 - We are only accepting March requests via PM to test out a new gifting system.

 

 

Anyone who requested in 2013 or before will need to re-request. This is done to ensure people are active still. Anyone who requested in 2014 should have been added. If not, your name should appear here with a reason.

 

Changes from the old thread to now:

There is a special clause for people requesting neglecteds now. If you request a neglected, you may not request other rares. This is to ensure breeders/gifters can give you something.

 

If you signed up with a neglected and a rare in the old thread, it is recommended that you fix your form to comply with the new rules.

 

The forms are different. Please make sure that you use the current forms. Thank you.

 

Formatting of things is different too. Hopefully it is easier to read?

Occasionally Asked Questions

 

Questions about Donating

Are there any requirements to be a donor?

Nope! Anyone can gift.

 

Can I breed/donate more than one gift for the same person?

Of course!

 

Can I breed/donate anonymously?

Of course! Just message this account or a mod with a link to the gift with the name of the recipient, and I will make sure the person gets it.

 

Can I send gifts to someone after the month of their birthday has passed?

Yes. Most often this occurs because dragons have been uncooperative, or a user signed up right before their month ended. You are free to send belated gifts, though try to keep the time frame reasonable.

 

You just updated the thread and I just now discovered my gift had been accepted. How do I notify you of this change from offered --> accepted?

Please send a message or post a note in the thread. I'll make the appropriate updates the next time I run an update.

 

A user has not taken my gift after >24 hours.

Some donors are kind enough to send a reminder message to the recipient, but you are not required to do so. If you're still holding a gift longer than 24 hours, please mention it on your gift report ("No response..."), and you may also message this account. The recipient will be warned and their list possibly removed from the main list depending on how/if they respond. Things like this happen sometimes, usually by accident - I hope it doesn't spoil your gifting experience. :)

 

What does it mean when an update says my gift has/gifts have been "added"?

It means your gift has been added to a secret spreadsheet. There's no points list on this thread, but if you'd like to know how many gifts you've given, PM and you'll get a number!

 

 

Questions about Receiving Gifts

How do you decide what breed goes in what tier?

Tier items are decided by their rarity or how difficult they are to acquire. If a recent release seems rare enough to go on tier 1 or 2, I will announce that in an update. Because "rarity" isn't always easy to determine (and availability of some breeds changes over time), please message this account or mention on the thread if you think something should be moved or added to a tier.

 

Can I accept more than one gift?

Yes you can.

 

Can I sign up several months before my birthday?

You can sign up whenever you want. Just make sure you respond to the activity check PM so you don't get removed when your birthday comes around!

 

Can I sign up the month of my birthday?

Of course!

 

Can I request an egg to be bred or caught on my birthday?

Of course!

 

Will I get the gift on my actual birthday?

Donors are in charge of when you'll get your birthday gift. It may be on your actual day, within that week, or within the month. It all depends on how easy it is to get your gift. You may request for something to be bred/hatched/caught on your birthday if you'd like.

 

May I freeze a gift?

This is up to the donors. If you plan to freeze a hatchling, it would be nice to note it in that entry that'd you'd like something to freeze.

 

If someone offers me a gift that isn’t what I asked for, can I reject it?

You are expected to take gifts you are offered, and I believe donors wouldn't send things to you in bad faith. However, if this is due to a mod mistake, such as an incorrect list being published, you do not have to take if if you really want it to go to the correct recipient. I will message you and your donor if I've made that error to resolve it.

 

If I need to be offline for a few days during the month of my birthday, can I still receive gifts?

Absolutely, but please say that you'll need to be offline and provide the dates. When your month comes along, there will be a note by your list about away dates. I will try to pay attention to signatures, too, but as long as it's announced somewhere, you're fine.

 

What happens when I receive a warning for not accepting a gift in time?

If you don't take a gift within the allotted time (24 hours, though some donors are willing to wait longer), you will receive a personal message from the Birthday Gifting account, and your list will be removed from the main list. While we understand that sometimes accidents happen or you need to be away for some time, it's not fair to our donors to make them hold things. If you received such a warning but wish to be added back, simply respond to the PM (and it would be nice if you PM the other user to sort things out as well). Please pay attention to your inbox. If you receive a second warning for the same infraction, your list will not be added back.

 

I signed up and didn't receive anything!

That might be because your list is too difficult (only asking for CB golds and 2nd-gen. prizes for instance) or you signed up right before your month has passed. The donors here are the backbone of Birthday Gifting, and sometimes they just can't fulfill a request. It's unfortunate, but it does happen.

 

How do I remove myself from the Birthday Gifting list?

If you would like to be removed, please message this account or a mod or post on the thread. If it's currently not your birthday month, you may ignore the next check-in message from Birthday Gifting.

 

I was looking at the spreadsheet and I noticed my name and row are highlighted. What does it mean?

Green means you have responded to the activity check, or if you just signed up, you've followed all the rules. All is good to go and you will be added the month of your birthday to the main list on the front page. YAY!

Red means your list does not meet our requirements in some way. Failing to update it will result in your list not being published the month of your birthday.

Grey means you have not responded to the activity check or do not seem to be active any more. (Grey entries will be cleared out a year after they've been marked.)

 

 

Questions about the Thread

How often is the thread updated?

I will try to update it at least once every few weeks, although I visit the thread often without updating.

 

I have a complaint/concern/suggestion. What do I do?

Message the account or a mod.

 

What's the quickest way to contact the mod of this thread?

Message the account or a mod. I check the thread, too.

 

Unanswered questions?

Message the account or a mod! :)
