Did the egg-timer countdown change recently, or long ago and I just never noticed it? It used to be that it only counted down by hours, and 0 days 1 hour could mean anything from 60 minutes left to 1 minute left.... But I just saw an egg flash by in the AP that said 24 minutes left! 

I think only if the time is really low...really really low.

Can someone confirm that the counter on their sig-stats thing from TJ's dcrecords site is off? Mine is showing over 100 more then I have.... I currently have 6,081 grown dragons and 15 growing dragons, according to the stats-area on my scroll, but my sig-thing is saying 6,229?! Is it off for anyone else?

The number shown for "grown dragons" does not include zombies, while data from the API (that the banners use) does. When I take that into account, the number is accurate for me personally. Do you have a large number of zombies?

Nope, I only have 19 zombies. Possibly 20 or 21, if I haven't counted my most recent ones in my spreadsheet.... But most definitely nowhere near the 100+ the banner shows.

Could it be that the API is also returning adult dead dragons? This fansite scroll stats tool says I have 24 deceased dragons on my scroll.


My unfiltered /dragons/ page says "Viewing 1 to 500 of 8,164".

The banner says I have 8173 creatures total. That's a difference of 9 creatures which are not shown on my unfiltered /dragons/ page.

 

I have 15 zombies. I may have killed 9 adult dragons in the past that are *not* zombies.

15 zombies plus 9 adult dead dragons is 24 which would match the number I got from said website.

No, we are not supposed to post asking for their return. What you can do is put something in your signature (but not the exact code of the lost egg) or change the names of the parents to politely ask for the egg's return when found.

Late response because I fell asleep... heh.

Thanks for the responses! I think I understand now. It is indeed a lot more complicated than I thought as well. I should be able to figure it out now at least. 😊

Is there still a lost and found thread for auto-abandoned eggs?

 

People on the unofficial DC Discord are usually quite helpful with this, but indeed you can't ask on the forums.

That seems like it may be the case? The API counting dead dragons I mean.... according to that link I have 132 dead dragons associated with my scroll, and adding that number to my current total does indeed equal the number shown in the banner.

Can I breed seasonal dragons and produce offspring that are different seasons than the parent(s)?

Yes, depending on the season. All Seasonals will produce Summer eggs in the summer, Autumn eggs in the fall, and so on.

Yes. All Seasonals will produce the current season no matter what the adults are.

This feels like a really dumb question considering I'm a mod, but... I just realized that I haven't reported a post in a long time, and now I can't figure out where the report button ran off to. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Am I really that blind??

It seems to have disappeared with today's forum update. It used to be next to the multiquote button. May have been an unintended side effect?

Ah! See, that's where I thought it was supposed to be. I was very concerned that I was truly not seeing something right in front of me.

I don’t see it either. Odd...

Maybe this should get its own thread since it seems to be something that might need TJ's attention. Certainly the ability to report threads is important as the mods can't be everywhere.

The report button's not the only thing - anyone else notice there's 0 Anonymous members listed at the bottom of the forum's Home page?  Even though I clicked the Anon checkbox, & my profile still says I haven't logged on out of Anon mode since April 20 - methinks there's something a little screwy in St. Louis here.  No little star next to my name to signal the Anon sign in, either.

You're probably still invisible. I'm obviously currently logged in since I'm able to post, but when I open the forum in a private browser window (gives me the view from "outside"), my name is not listed at the bottom. So the important stuff in *that* regard still works.

So I just adopted an egg from the AP and that is what the parents progeny page shows:

What? How? Who? When? Where? I thought multiclutches only happened with Holiday dragons? 😱

Celestial dragons can multi-clutch, it's one of their unique breed traits. :)
