If you had precogged it before influencing, and it prcogged female, then it would stay female after transfer to incubate. But influence will wear off when an egg is traded. Since you don't know what the egg would have been without your use of influence, you can't count on it staying female. If the egg "wanted" to be male before you influenced it female, then it will lose the female influence when it is transferred and will hatch male.

 

As Dorchet says, the only way to be sure is to have the person who takes it influence it before incubating and hatching it.

Influence will wear off only if it is an egg. If it has hatched already it will not. You're best bet is to have the receiving person influence it and incubate it for you, just to be safe.

Or hatch it before you trade it, then it will be female.

Is **** technically censor evasion?  It's as good as putting *expletive* imo.

Yes. I got my first warn this way.

I needed emotional support and got a warn instead, that's how this works.

If it's technically censor evasion, why does **** exist?  That doesn't make sense to me...  also, fuzzbucket said it wasn't?  So now I'm confused.  Perhaps a mod should weigh in on this.

This predates me being a mod, but let me say the whole point of the censorkipz was so users could express expletives without fear of warns. That was my understanding, anyway. Using the censorkipz is not censor evasion, quite the opposite, and it is allowed without warn repercussions. We should not still be warning users for it, and I can't believe we were at one point.

Can we use the **** asterisks, Least in the RP section? I'm asking because I hate the censorkipz breaking up my posts because they're so jarring, obtrusive to me, and bright, and I have a few RP characters who swear and I really don't think the censorkipz fit there.

 

EDIT: ...also I hate how text gets autoemojied now and wish we could still turn that off. Is tgat a calid suggestion?

now that folks are getting adult florets, how do they breed? Like do they work like Pyrals and only produce their colour, or do they work like Baikalas and its determined by the mother's biome, or something else?

It's hard to tell so far and it might take time to get a proper understanding of how they work (unless the spriters let us know). So far, I've seen purple eggs bred from the purple variety, but I haven't seen any examples of Florets producing the other colour yet. That's not to say it won't happen, but I have only seen examples so far of the purples breeding true (and no examples of the gold yet). So it might just take some time to figure out. 

 

Keep your eye on this thread, though, because I'm sure people will start showing the pretty things they're breeding soon and that'll give us a better idea!

To your first question, as long as the word being hidden by the asterisks is PG-13 (and PG-13 swear words shouldn't be censored anyway), I see no problem with it. Heavier swear words, though, should always be censored with censorkipz, even if the character they're based on swears like a drunken sailor. @Dragonhatchling what are your thoughts here?

 

To your last question, that's more of a suggestion that warrants its own thread. I don't see a way to turn them off myself, so I'm guessing it's a forum setting.

Ugh, guess I'm dropping that character - the censorkipz sear my eyes. Just curious, why do we have to use censorkipz? It could just be me being dumb, but they seem to accomplish the job same as asterisks or [redacted], just more bright and hard to look at for me, so I don't really understand, sorry. The other thing that annoys me is cause it's a picture there's jack I can do to make it less searig that I know how to.

My previous post was incorrect, my 15-hour awake brain thought the censorkipz was how the forum handled censor evasion. Our censor actually turns forbidden words into asterisks, feel free to let the censor do its thing, no censorkipz required. Sorry for the confusion!

@DuskOfTheStars

 

Asterisks are fine to use. The way the forum works now, the censor should actually turn most of those into asterisks anyways and only a few words in to censorkipz now. Not sure why, or how that changed/changes, but most swear words turn in to asterisks now from what i've seen. So feel free to blot out any non-PG13 words with asterisks instead of censorkipz.

Ah, I see. Sorry about the frustration, and thank you both!

Not sure if it needs a new thread.

 

FINALLY the scroll stats page is working - EXCEPT that when it comes to breeding records I get a dragon of - someone else's, not my own...

AND it suggests that dragon has no children, which is not true....

 

How are other people doing on this ?

Ayyyyy, thanks for bringing it to my attention that the Scroll Records thing actually works now!

 

That is, except for the breeding records - I get the same dragon as you do (Galletian Victory), also with 0 children. (Since this appears not to be a just you problem I think it could do with a thread.)

So I just returned from 2009 and I see that a lot of things have changed. Can anyone enlighten me with these few questions?

 

Can Metal X Metal breed now? Like GoldXGold?

Is there a checklist of Dragons available online or something?

Will my Dragon Encyclopedia ever update? I have a few dragons but still most of the dragons in the encyclopedia are shadows.

Is there a list of dragons that are considered rare and I should watch out for?

Yep! It just means it might take a while to get an egg out of them, since they're still pretty rare. :)

You can use this page of the unofficial wiki to see what dragons are available:

You'll have to unlock the breeds by viewing them, but you can jump on someone else's scroll and click their dragons to unlock information. For example, go to my scroll (link in sig) and click on breeds that you don't recognise. The more you click, the more information will then be shown on their encyclopedia page. 

 

There's a thread here that can help you by linking to dragons you wish to unlock:

This is a bit harder to answer since it's so subjective. Take a look at the Rare Trading Thread below for some ideas.

It's also useful to check out this thread if you have any questions about trade value, or simply to see what other people are asking about and discussing. ^_^

 Hopefully this is helpful! Feel free to PM me if you have any other questions or you just want to have a chat and start getting to know people again. :) Welcome back!

Glad it helped! ^_^ Good luck finding some of the newer dragons and keep an eye on the trading threads to help you find what you're looking for. A lot of people are also happy to breed and gift eggs if there are specific ones you're after!

The Encyclopedia Helper's thread that StormWizard212 linked to is a great way to unlock the Encyclopedia. But check your stats on the Encyclopedia pages and make sure clicking the dragons actually counts, sometimes you have to go to a dragon's lineage page and then click to it from there to get it to count.

Anyone can tell me some moderators of the Suggestions section?

 

Help Moderators look after the Suggestions forum. :) You can find a list of Help Moderators and Global Moderators (who moderate the entire board and will also be able to help) here by filtering them in the member search like this:

https://forums.dragcave.net/search/?&type=core_members&joinedDate=any&group[6]=1&group[8]=1 

 

Help Moderators: Infinis, Fire-Ice, Rainstarkitty and yosofine

If you click 'Find Content' you'll be able to see when each was last active and this will help you determine who to contact. ^_^

Maybe they're visible in the daytime on the 31st? (Pure speculation on my part.)
