Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

My personal huge even lineage projects are currently on hold, but I make extensive use of Google Docs spreadsheets to keep track of both my entire collection and my breeding plans/projects.

 

HERE is my old spreadsheet for tracking everything; I've since moved on to a better, more concise version of the same, so this one hasn't been updated since mid-2014. The main tab (tabs are visible at the bottom of the page) tracks all of my dragons, the second tab shows me my collection goals and how close they are to completion, the third tab is a reference sheet that provides the numbers for the second and is broken down by years so I can see how many of any given type of dragon I collected that year. The other tabs are all lineage projects that I charted and tracked in different ways, up until the archive tab, where I started storing data for my older dragons because the spreadsheet was taking too long to process changes due to its size.

 

My sheets are pretty intense, but it can give you an idea of how you can use spreadsheets to track things like that, lol.

Thank you.

You said intense, but I didn't realize how intense until I saw it. ohmy.gifohmy.gif

Wow...that was pretty amazing.

 

I ended up with two lineage projects that are considered bigger, for me, so I ended up drawing it out , using a spreadsheet and a lineage plan image thingy.

Ok... Multiscrolling. Let's say I have just a vague suspicion that someone has more than one scroll. And, while it is not an evidence per se, there is something I'd like to consult with someone. Should I contact a mod? I am terrible at things like this, and I don't want to waste anyone's time. and I am a bit afraid of Mods...

Yes, I would contact a mod.

Or I think I saw someone saying that they reported the user? I'm not entirely sure how the process works.

Personally I would contact a mod. It's pretty hard for a normal user to get evidence since you would probably need access to the administer control panel to get any.

PM Socky. You're supposed to take up such concerns with a mod or with TJ (mods preferred so you don't waste TJ's time looking - mods can do the detail-digging and present TJ with a definitive "scorch this" if necessary) and Socky doesn't bite so there's nothing to be afraid of. I am reasonably sure the other mods don't bite either. tongue.gif

Yes, PM a mod. Evidence is great, but if you just have a suspicion, that's also fine. We can look further into it and decide if a report to TJ is necessary or not. :3

 

EDIT: Missed the above. Lol, thank you. I do promise not to bite. =p

So I realized there are a lot of trading threads now, almost double of what I was used to. xd.png Which is a good thing, of course, but many of these threads sometimes do not have a new post in a day or two or even more. Is it still considered legal bump if last post is mine but I post again after 24 hrs, because thread itself has gone back to page 2 of thread index. (Essentially I would end up with double posts that are spaced out in time by 24hrs or more). Or is it better to delete the previous post first and then repost for the legal bump? If I delete and repost, how will the mods know it's a legal bump?

 

Perhaps a mod can answer this? Trying to be Crystal clear about the rules to use the threads efficiently.

Well.. I'm not a mod, but from what I gather bumping your post after 24 hours is legal no matter what. Whether you'd be double posting or if your listing is on the same page, in my personal opinion I'd recommend deleting your previous post just for the sake of keeping the thread clean and because leaving it there would be unnecessary at that point, but it doesn't really matter much.

OK I was just "windowshopping" aka browsing the AP while locked and noticed something peculiar:

 

lineages of AP eggs eem to be only visible for 5 generations back.

 

I checked with a dragon I bred a while ago and that is fully grown on another person's scroll and all 10 gens of its glorious orangeness are visible, so it seems to be just AP eggs.

 

Anyone else noticed this or is it just me?

I can see all the gens on a couple I picked up??????

I'm pretty sure I would be able to do that as well because THEN they would be on my scroll it only happens as long as they are IN the AP, when I copy the link and manually switch the "get" to "lineage".

 

I'm sometimes doing that (especially during walls) to check for pretty lineages and sometimes even when locked (such as now) to take joy from the prettyness.

It's been like that for quite a while already (I think I asked the same thing a few years ago), but not all the time, apparently? I don't know what it's depending on ...

Years? Wow - I've never seen that before. Thanks for clarifying, Ruby smile.gif

Definitely doesn't hurt to ask again, since I've never received an answer or anything laugh.gif

For nebula dragons...

Is there any way to predict the color or is it just random?

No way to predict. It is just a matter of luck and you can't tell until they gender.

Random within the gender. There seem to be a bit of waves in which for a while Reds are more common that Blues (for females) or Purples are more likely than Greens (for males) but usually you just notice when it's too late. wink.gif

If you want a mod to answer, it's best to PM a mod directly. :3

 

Anyway, I believe that would be okay, but would suggest PM'ing _Z_ to double check.

Soo, I'm hunting the biomes and I try to look up the code of a Dorsal to see if it was red or purple. Well, it wouldn't let me. I guess it was a way to sort of cheat, but it used to be possible. After I clicked it (it was purple) I could look up its code. I was spelling it right. Did it get changed?

Also regarding the view page to see a cave dragon's true identity, I doubt it would be that difficult to have the view page throw an error when you're trying to go to the page of an egg that's still sitting unclaimed in the cave.

Guess TJ liked this suggestion biggrin.gif
