Can any of the valentines dragons be either gender when they're bred? Like hollies and mistletoes can be either gender?

Not so far.

Apologies! I misread the question. I don't know about Valentines dragons. 

 

What I always do, just to make sure, is before a bred dragon egg gets too old, I click on a BSA Pink and look through my eggs to see which ones can be influenced. :) Just in case something changes!

Yeah, that's a good way to check XD I just wanted to know beforehand because I used a bunch of pinks recently and I was thinking "wow, did I need those?"

Hello, how does one acquire a Spriters Alt Kin?

Do the Spriters breed something and just gift it to someone or throw it in the abandoned page or how does it work?

I have only ever found one once; it was a Chrono Xenowyrm from blue mutamore on the abandoned page and I managed to accidentally abandon it too... Argh!!

I want to know if I will have to haunt the AP for any SAKins or if there is another way to get them.

Guess it depends if you want a 2nd gen or don't care.  a 2nd gen you will have to depend on the artist in question breeding.  Yes some are dropped to the ap, and some are traded.  Some artists may be okay with you messaging them with a POLITE request.  You could also put something up on the trading hub saying thats what you want in return. 

Higher gens:  see above, but more players available to potentially breed them.

This. Ever since Mistletoes, I do that with every breed which bred true for the first time.

Last year's event started on the 8th (12am), so my guess is tomorrow night rather than tonight.

We might get a "Valentine event timeline" post ahead of time, or we may not. Only one way to find out. :huh:

Will preface this by saying that I can't be more specific about the question without censor-evading, so if a mod wants clarification on what I mean they're free to PM me.

 

I recently got a very vulgar code from someone. I know that leaving naughty-coded dragons unnamed is fine, because obviously the user isn't obligated to name their dragons and they can't control the code. What I would like to know, though, is whether it's okay to breed two specific codes together to make a phrase that would probably get me banned the moment I say it.

 

I don't mean just combining two naughty codes; people do that all the time. I'm thinking more in terms of a vulgar verb code, plus a code that would otherwise be innocent, to make a pair that together forms a phrase that the wrong person would take as advocating for doing something illegal and very morally wrong. The same question also applies for leaving the bad code alone, and naming the mate to form such a phrase.

 

The reason I ask this is that I've not seen it done yet, most people are either too scared of breaking rules or too uncomfortable with the specifics to try, and breeding is a deliberate action on the user's part. Thanks.

I'd post this in the name check thread as well...

I would, but since it's referring to codes and not names I wasn't sure it would be appropriate there.

 

I'll go cross-post now~

I see it all the time? Naughty codes galore in lineages are kind of a thing, too: https://dragcave.net/lineage/grajk (view at your own risk)

She's nearly 6 years old, and nothing bad happened to people breeding or sharing these, as far as I can tell.

Combining two codes to make yet another word isn't any different from that, as far as I can tell.

The issue isn't combining naughty codes. It's combining two codes that in combination go beyond just having a bunch of CBs that say sexual things.

I would like an answer to @Keileon's question, too.

I assume the dragons in question are something like (made-up codes that don't currently exist) "WeEat" and "Babys", except with different words.

Of course one could ask "why do you even want to breed those together", but that's not an answer to "will bad things happen to me or my dragons if I do it".

(And if the answer is "yes, bad things will happen if combining two coded dragons results in a very bad phrase", how do we decide what is very bad? Is it okay if it's too weird to be taken seriously? Because I maaaay have bred a "bad verb" code dragon to a dragon with "cows" in its code just to make funny offspring.)

I would like an answer too - BUT - I also wonder if it is POSSIBLE (if it is ONLY the codes and no-one gives anyone a NAME to emphasise the shocker) because after all - there will be players who actually don't look at this stuff and have no idea there could be a problem. You cannot penalise the unknowing..

 

If I managed to breed Kill with a code referring to some group of people in particular, and left the codes in place.... The same would go for any phrase I managed to accidentally create, and who would know if I did it on purpose or not. Or even if - well, suppose I had only two CB golds and wanted to breed them together. And suppose they were the pair with those codes... If I were that unlucky - well, heck, I'd breed them anyway. Wouldn't anyone ? Codes are random. As long as they are, you cannot legislate against them, like.

My question is, if you know something will be truly offensive -- and I am talking about people who DO know, why would you want to do it?

I mean, there could be a ton of reasons. The pair looks nice, they're in a breeding project and are hard to replace, or even just cases of "for the laughs".

 

It's perfectly valid to ask "why", but that doesn't address "is it against the rules".

I didn't intend to address that and I am also interested in the answer. I was merely curious about the reason for wanting to do so.

Yeah, sometimes it's purely for shock value; sometimes it's because the person has a morbid sense of humor and finds it amusing; often the second, but there could even be more innocent reasons. Depends on the person~

This is something I've not had happen before.  On the 6th, just after midnight I did this Successfully revived (0dsiE).   It was a pygmy hatche that died and I was trying for a zombie.  But when it revived, it had over 2 days left before it would die again.  It currently has 10 hrs left.  Is this normal for revived hatchies?

As far as I know, yes. They gain a random amount of time (at least it used to be random), otherwise it wouldn't help much to revive a hatchling that ran out of time.

Did it die by running out of time? If so, if successfully revived it does get extra time to grow, though I don't believe sickness or kill deaths do. But since it's already been revived once it probably can't be revived again.
