The idea wasn't that we wouldn't be likely to get a release this month, it was to make it happen sooner by telling TJ we expect it later. ;) A bit of reverse psychology, really.

Hehehe, you can all thank me later...:lol:

:D Well, it's more likely that TJ had planned it that way anyway (or that he "forgot" about Easter and the end of the month coinciding and changed his plans because of that) than that you actually made him do it - but it's still fun to mess with the almighty TJ like that. ;)

But there's no actual reason to believe it is an end of the month thing any more....

There may not be an actual reason, but it seems that most releases are end-of-month rather than somewhere in the middle, much less in the very first week. Well, save for May (for birthday reasons).

 

Let's take the regular releases from last year (broad: last week of the month):

September 30 (Bauta and Spinels)

August 28 (Khusa and Carina)

July 17 (Baikala and Script)

June 25 (Setsong, Risensong and Dusk Pygmy)

May 21 (Zyumorphs and Sinomorph) => Birthday release

April 28 (Scimitar-Winged and Sinii Krai)

March 19 (Tetra and Fire-Gems) => First regular release of the year

 

Let's take a look at 2016.

November 26 (Azure Glacewing, Fell and Honey Drake)

September 25 (Diamondwing and Monarch)

August 21 (Aeon Wyvern, Almerald, Dark Lumina, Kingcrowne and Kyanite Pygmy)

July 10 (Bold and Storm Rider)

May 21 (Nexus, Candelabra, Morphodrake, Tarantula Hawk Drake + re-release of Frills and Arias) => Birthday release

April 1 (Celestial) => probably in order to make us think it's a joke?

March 19 (Antarean, Sapphire) => first release of the year

 

Now, off to 2015:

August 29 (Lunar Heralds)

July 26 (Spirit Ward)

June 27 (Xenowyrms)

May 20 (Hooktalon, Greater Spotted Drake and Magelight Pygmy) => Birthday release

April 26 (Anagallis)

March 28 (Gemshards, Plated Colossus and Striped River)

 

So, we have the first-of-year release a little early. Next month will probably be the last week of the month. (Even if TJ doesn't come up with an April 1st joke, he'll probably not do another release that day. This release is just too close.) May will be on/around the 21st, June most likely last week, same as July. We might need to keep our eyes open for a surprise release on August 18, but it's not a given this will happen.

These are permanent, so even if you miss the initial drop they'll still be here. You can check in the AP as well. There are usually a lot just after the release.

Lol, trust me, the great TJ will have no idea I even posted!  As you said, it was a fun thing to do since we were all waiting. :)

I'm wondering, I want to link to my scroll on another site, is it okay to use an image of a DC dragon as a link on a different forum? It won't be edited in anyway and I will give credit underneath the image. I was thinking either using a Dark Green or Vampire dragon as the image, if that makes any difference.

Big no on the Vampire, possibly - with artist's permission asked - for the Dark Green. How do I know? Check out this thread, it's unfortunately incomplete but it does have many artist's policy on use of their art, in particular off-site:

 

 

As a rule of thumb though - when in doubt ask the artist. (Which artist did the sprite you're interested in? Either check the wiki or go to a dragon of that breed, the copyright info is at the bottom of the page.)

valentine 2018 activities: my friend was checking the messages and clicked the little flag next to one of the message.  I think that's the 'report this' button.  She didn't mean to.  Would that cause any problem?

She just won't be able to see it any more.

You can't report+hide a message without going through a full confirmation. Which is actually currently broken anyways.

You mean this? :)

The code is this:

And yes, to my knowledge, releasing and killing dragons both detract from your grown dragon count.

It won't work for me. Could it be because my scroll is too large? Or am I doing something wrong?  princesslucy.png

@PrincessLucy: The new board doesn't just let you put in code. You have to use the buttons…At the bottom right, you have "Insert other media". Use "Insert Image from URL". Like this: princesslucy.png

That box in your sig with the code in it, highlight it with your mouse, then select the "Tx" button to try and remove that box?

because of the current release, I am paying more attention to the CB drops in the cave.

what happens to all the CBs that didn't get picked up?  The codes will be recycled?  i.e. re-generate for another egg (could be a different breed) Or once a code is assigned / generated for a breed, it will recycle at the hourly drop but the breed won't change?

PS: still no luck with the purple egg >.<

Hourly, all unpicked eggs get deleted. New eggs with the same codes may be created at a later point in time.

It's been a while since I was on, and I have a LOT of catching up to do.  Is there any way to collect a lot of dragons quickly?  I don't care if they're CB or bred or even what breed they are, I just want, like, a dragon dump, so I can reach 500 dragons, get the gold trophy, and have more egg space to start collecting the new things! :D  *impatient bouncing* 

Or is the only way to just keep hatching 6 eggs at a time for approximately the next million years.  (I have 240-ish dragons currently, I'm gonna be here a while *groan*) 
Sorry if this is a dumb question, just wondering if there's a trick I missed.

You can grab most of your eggs from the AP, which is normally lower-timed then the biomes (the AP time is currently Incu-hatchable, which means if you use Incubate you can hatch the eggs right away!). Unfortunately there is no way to make hatchlings grow up faster (some of us have been asking for that for years). If you are dedicated and have the maximum amount of eggs/hatchlings most of the time it shouldn't take too long to hit the gold trophy... With just one more eggslot then you, when I had a gold trophy, I was able to collect over 1,000 dragons in one year.

 

edit: Also, if you are able to catch valuable things in the biomes, you could always trade those high-timed eggs for hatchlings, which means less time to wait until they grow up.

I didn't use any buttons- just pasted the code.

I can see the image here- is it working for you too? Just copy and past the image if it is.

Thank you.  And thank you too, Ruby Eyes.  I couldn't figure out how to quote you both.

 

It works!!! Yay!!!
