That's fair.  I gave the 2nd gen I bred away for free too.  I wasn't really concerned with trading, it's generally not worth it.  more if it was something people would be interested in bothering with breeding.  Mints are awfully common, even if I do like them.

 

Appreciate your thoughts.

@Aleoleo I don't release many dragons, but I have never heard of anyone having a dragon that refused to be released. Not saying it never happened, just something I never heard of.

I did a large scroll-cleaning years ago as well, I don't remember any of them giving me any trouble with releasing. 

 

Thank you both. I was so sure it happened, but... I guess it's time to admit this was all in my head! XD

Two things:

I found a really odd quirk of the main site, not sure wether it's my phone or my provider or what, but whenever I accidentally access the cave on a restricted network, I can't seem to reload it properly on my data afterwards for about an hour.  Anybody else notice this?

With or without cache & cookie clearing?

There's no way to do this on phone without deleting all my passwords and history (at least none I'm aware of) thus I really don't want to.

Does anyone know why the Alpine is suddenly empty of eggs? Did we get a new release and not get told? Or is it just super crowded today? :D

Probably still people hunting for Florets, the golden variety.

Random question: Anyone know the reasoning behind the order of Gemshard and Fire Gem colors in breed sort? Fire Gems are sorted blue first, then red, then green, while Gemshards are sorted green first, then red, then blue. I'm not necessarily saying they should be sorted the same way, they are totally different breeds of course, I'm just curious if there is any actual reason for the orders? (I noticed that the colors are sorted in the same order in the Encyclopedia, so maybe breed sort simply follows the Encyclopedia sort... But then why does the Encyclopedia sort them that way?)

Maybe Gemshards are Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire? That would make it alphabetical. No clue about Fire Gems ^^

On another issue....

 

I am getting notifications of my messages but NONE from threads I follow. I have checked my settings and I SHOULD be getting them. I have also tried the unfollow/follow flip - no change.  And yes I also checked my spam. Am I alone here, or does this need a thread ?

 

ETA and the address isn't blocked - and I AM getting them for messages....

This happened a while ago, and if I recall correctly, @TJ09 had to fix something in the mailing area of the forum. Maybe it's the same thing again.

Hi :) When two different Prize types/colors are bred together, can they produce eggs of either breed and color or will they always produce only one of them? 

For example, I have a Bronze Tinsel x Gold Tinsel pair - so far they produced two Gold Tinsels. Will I ever get a Bronze from them or is the future offspring 'stuck' and they're going to only give Gold Tinsels? :P Also, is there any difference in this behavior between same-breed but different-color pairings (e.g. Bronze Shimmer x Silver Shimmer) and different-breed pairings (Bronze Shimmer x Silver Tinsel)? I never had dragon couples like that before until recently so Im not sure how it works. Thanks in advance!

They can produce the egg of either parent so both Gold Tinsels and Bronze Tinsels are both possible with the pairing you mentioned. You have just been lucky. :) Same goes for Shimmer/Tinsel pairings. You can receive an egg that is the same as either parent being bred.

 

What you won't get is a prize that isn't one of the parents. So if you breed a Silver Tinsel and Silver Shimmer, you will never receive a gold or bronze egg. Likewise, if you breed a Silver Shimmer and a Gold Shimmer, you will never receive a Tinsel egg. 

 

Sorry, I was mistaken! They will only produce the egg of one parent after all. My apologies!

Did that really change? Because it used to be that a specific pair of individuals would only ever produce one colour. Another pair with the same colours might produce eggs of the other colour - but only that one.

Oh really? Sorry, I hadn't realised that! I'm mistaken then. :) @Tears in Rain I apologise for the confusion!

Oh man, that sucks XD I was hoping for a Bronze from mine one day! Oh well.

Why does it even work like that in the first place? I hope it changes in the future. *eyes Suggestions/Requests* Maybe I should make a thread, or find an existing one :P 

 

@Ruby Eyes @StormWizard212 Thanks guys! :D

Snap, that topic is locked :( Assuming that and the response back then, would creating one even be allowed/is that smth that can be considered at this point at all? It's been more than 2 yrs since the last post.

More like a rhetorical question I guess, but just wondering :unsure:

Even the big boss has changed his mind on things before. Might be worth a shot, but maybe ask a mod?

I was poking around the Notifications options on the forum, and got a little confused at one part. You can toggle how you receive notifications for different things, and one of them is:

Quote

Someone replies to a status update I posted, is on my profile, or I have also replied to

 

I don't really understand what this mean? What is a 'status update'? It's under the heading 'profile' so I thought it may be a section on my profile, but I don't see anything labeled 'status update'. And what does that last part mean, 'or I have also replied to'? A notification for.... a reply on a status update that I had replied to? This one is just confusing me all around.

Status updates are a feature of this particular forum software, but it's a feature that isn't turned on here at the DC forums. :) It allows members to post status updates on their profiles (similar to other social media) and they can be viewed on profiles and sometimes in a news feed that appears on the main page. People can respond to these status updates. I'm on another forum where this feature is enabled and it makes the board feel a little bit more like social media. 

 

You can see which features are disabled on DC specifically by going to Notification Settings (where you were). You'll notice that some of the toggles are greyed out -they are switched off by default and cannot be switched on. If you hover over one of these, such as the one you mentioned above, you'll see the following message: "The administrator has disabled this option from being toggled."

Ohhh! I thought the 'disabled' toggle notice just meant that you couldn't get notifications for that thing, I didn't realize it meant the thing itself is disabled! Thanks!

No, it's not about relationship status. They're status updates like on Facebook where you write a line or two about how you're feeling, what you're up to, etc. If you think about the "How was your day?" thread in General Discussion, I imagine a lot of the status updates would be a lot like that. They're just comments about how you're feeling, what you're thinking, etc. that show up on a sort of news feed and others are free to then comment on them. Facebook posts or tweets are the closest thing I can think to liken them to.

Oh I know - but some people on FB (I am told) do put relationship status under there :D It was just such a ghastly thought !
