Also, usually if a pair refuses, that potential mate sinks to the bottom, and they were available to mate, if that makes sense. 

That bit gets reset when they mate successfully during a holiday, unfortunately.

When breeding, was the mate listed at the top or in scroll sort order? edit: forget that question - you probably won't remember that bit from over 2 years and 11 months ago.

Thanks; I didn't know it gets reset after holiday breeding. I don't think they had ever bred outside of the holiday season; I can't say with 100% certainty but I am fairly sure. 

 

As to your second question, you are correct; I don't remember the breeding order. (Even from the recent breeding I can't remember ... ?!)

How desperate are you for an avatar from that pair ? Mine just didn't produce an egg, so I can try again in the New Year, if that would help ?

Thank you so much, Fuzz; I will PM you. ^^

Just one Little Thing,

 

Just read it in a few threads. There are no refusals for breeding with Hollidays during their Holidays, is that right?

 

So I wouldn't need to spare my fertilize BSAs^^

Correct. Refusals are turned off for holiday dragons during their holiday breeding season.

This might be a silly question, but when the raffle says "Raise 3 dragons/sea serpents/etc." does that mean raise to adulthood or could a frozen hatchling count?

Since it specifically says "adult" it means frozens won't count.

I should know this, but can't remember -- does ward transfer when an egg is traded? Also, does it prevent views or just keep the egg from dying?

No idea about the transfer, but it does NOT prevent views, it "only" prevents death by sickness. As in, warded eggs can totally hatch while sick, for which they need views.

 

@dragonpuck 6 hours, actually, and these carry over to the hatchling.

6 hours says the BSA desciption on the White's Actions page, and the carrying over was mentioned by TJ here.

Sick hatchling with the ward message:

 and only for 5  hours or until it hatches

Thanks @Ruby Eyes and @dragonpuck I had an egg I traded for that seemed not to be getting views, so I wondered. Anyway the views are registering now, so all is well.

This is true, but I'd still fertilize any first time pairs that you want to breed outside of the holiday. I'm pretty sure this topic was discussed in previous years and the theory was that holidays will never show a refusal during their season, but they can basically have a hidden "refusal" that you will only see if you try to breed them later. Using fertility on new pairs during the holiday season doesn't have any visible effects but it prevents hidden refusals. If you use fertility after the holiday season, you won't be able to change refusal odds, because the dragons have already refused (or not) but you couldn't tell because of the holiday. (I think this is what happened with @missy_'s pair.) Basically schrodinger's refusal when it comes to breeding during holiday time.

 

Of course this is only true if the theory is correct, and I don't know that it is. It is just something that has come up before and I think it seems plausible.

I hold to the better safe than sorry option, too. I was told when I recommended that to someone else that it was not necessary, but I would rather err on the side of caution, so I fertilize all of my new pairs whether in season or out.

@Din85 - Sorry! I missed that part of your question.

This theory was partially true - there used to be hidden compatibility checks when breeding holiday pairs in season that would cause issues when they were bred again later. Using fertility on them did not prevent this however. I experienced it myself a while ago and there was a discussion about it in this forum too. TJ posted that there was a bug that could cause pairs to secretly refuse each other when bred during the holiday season, so when someone tried breeding a secret refusal pair outside the holidays they would always refuse (even if fertility was used).

This bug was fixed though, and TJ changed it so there was no more hidden compatibility checks during holiday breeding seasons. So I'm not certain that is what happened to Missy's pair.

 

TJ did also confirm that the fertility effect is erased from all holiday dragons during their respective breeding seasons, so no need for anyone to do that. Fertilizing new pairs outside the holidays is always a good idea though!

I'm logged into my scroll on my phone... and I've just opened the cave on my laptop and I'm logged in there as well.

I thought you couldn't be logged in on two devices at once?  Has that been changed?  :huh:

So, is breeding starting tomorrow (17th) or the next day (18th)?  

Last year was Dec 19th to Dec 25th. It is usually the same each year (seven days).

Are there rules about discussing neglected dragons? I thought that there were somewhere, but if there are, I'm being dumb and can't find them.

Basically, you can't. Not in public at the forum.
