Are you sure? Didn't you write something like "[nick] offer again" or "offer anything I don't have"? Also, you said about your last trade, what about the other ones? 

on pretty much all my trades I write 'dragon type' or offers or just offer anything

Never mentioned anyone 

Is it possible that someone reported me?

 

Edit: Why I think it was my last trade is because it was canceled. I thought one of my hatchies grew up but they didn't and I know I didn't cancel it myself.

How is "offer anything I don't have" against the rules?

I can't find where I saw post saying that it is against the rules, but let me explain.

 

If I have 1200+ dragons and I'll say "offer anything I don't have", will you check my whole scroll to see what I need? No, you won't. 

 

You should say what you want like this: looking for a 3G Silver x (m) Chrono checker / looking for 2-4 any CB hatchlings / offer a dummy / bloodswap and so on. You can't say anything like "offer anything I don't have" or "[nick] offer again". Also, you can't put any off-site (Edit: thanks @HeatherMarie for correcting!) links in the box or say "pm me on forum". 

 

Fun fact: you can't even say "offer 2G from val '09 alt" or anything similiar to it, because only two people on whole DC have this alt. I think Trading Hub should get guidelines or something. For now, you can get banned for a lot of things.

 

I'll search for this post, but it'll take me a while to scroll through 1000+ replies on Trading Hub thread.

I don't think you'd receive a ban if somebody reported you and there wasn't anything wrong on the trade. (= you shouldn't be blocked just because sb finds reporting people funny)

According to TJ only off-site links are forbidden, so it's perfectly fine to link to a group you've made on-scroll or something (it should be, I haven't actually tried). 

 

The general Want-box rules are basically 'describe what people should offer you' and 'it needs to be applicable to people-in-general not aimed at a specific person'. Which means no specific names or 'the person who offered before, offer again!' or anything like that. I've never seen anyone specifically say that 'offer anything I don't have' is actually against the rules, but as it gives no direct indication of what you actually want, I can see how it could be. In general it's just a good idea to not make people jump through hoops to figure out what you want. I very much doubt many people would actually go through someone's entire scroll to see which breeds they don't already have.

Since we cannot help you with this issue, I'd suggest you PM a mod and ask. It's the only reliable way to find out.

Might be a dumb question but this is my first time having a BSA on cooldown. My Magi dragon's teleport is on cooldown (I think I let the trade expire and that must have counted, since none of my trades succeeded)

 

It said 1 more day last night, and still says 1 more day today. Is it going to be off cooldown today, or tomorrow? I'm not sure if the message changes to 0 days or not. I bred my Copper dragon last night and I want to give the egg to my friend but Ceol is being stubborn and refusing to teleport today. He must know I'm egglocked...

Today - exactly 2x24 hours after the cooldown started.

Alright, guess I'll keep an eye on him. Thank you!

Is there a trick to make sure eggs hatch at specific times (such as with Sunrise/Sunsets) or is it just down to luck?

If you use incubate, you can hatch an egg early to get a specific time. (Doesn't work with Siyats, however.) You can also use fog to prevent an egg from hatching until a specific time. This doesn't require a BSA. Maybe other people have other suggestions as well; this is just what I know off the top of my head.

When breeding prizes with other dragons, are there specific dragons/combos that are harder to get a prize egg from? If so, would that increase their value compared to others?

A Sun egg must hatch between 6:00 EST and 12:00 EST to become a Sunrise Dragon.

 

A Sun egg must hatch between 18:00 EST and 00:00 EST to become a Sunset Dragon.

Usually, the more recent a breed was released and the more common it is the harder it is to get a prize egg from. Holidays and Guardians of Nature are the exact opposite: GoN and Holidays out of season can only produce prize eggs (because their own breed can't be created by breeding at that time / at all) :)

 

So, technically, common mates produce rarer prizes.. depends on the individual if they are willing to pay more.

 

If you have more detailed questions about this feel free to PM me (I didn't want to write a long wall of text here if that was all you were interested in)

That's only true for Western Prizes because these are neutral. The Eastern ones are water-aligned and as such can produce Avatars of Creation: https://dragcave.net/lineage/3NYsV

 

True, I kinda always forget about Shimmers because my family seems to be a Tinsel magnet 😅 (so when I hear "prize" there is usually this connotation of "must be a Tinsel")

Has anyone ever seen their shard counter not add up properly? I started today at 2290 and caught/bred a few eggs, but then my counter stopped at 2299 instead of 2300. Meanwhile it also says I hit my 100 shard limit. I'm super certain I've been hitting the limit each week so I thought this was kinda strange.

I heard that dodges only prevent killing for the next 1 hour now, but every time I try to rekill them hours later I get another dodge. Has anyone had a kill after a dodge in the same day?

Since when is it only an hour? I might not be up to date here, but I remember it being 24 hours...

As far as I know dodges still only clear at midnight.

We don't know. This was said:

Aw man. I mean, I was used to the 24h thing since I've been here for ages, but I felt like everyone was acting like it had actually been changed a while ago. I got 4/5 kills on the 17th anyway.

Do Halloween Dragons (Cave born, when caught) have a shorter time period? like when you catch a dragon in the biomes, they automatically have 7 days to hatch. 

 

Just asking cause I want 2 of every dragon at least, and I know that wont be possible in 1 day. (unless the Halloween Biome is available this year, then I may have a chance)

Caveborn holidays are just like any other caveborn dragon. They have the same timer.
