Question:  Is there a page/group for people who talk about what Marketplace purchases they're making/going to make?

Not that I know of. Maybe start one? Sounds like something people might be interested in.

Hello all.  I'm fairly new to USING the fourms, but not so much with the game.  But I have a FEW questions as I don't know where to appropriately find/post my questions without it being considered spam or whatnot (don't want to anger the mods!).  So here they are:

1.  People have amazing sigs and I wish to get up on that, however I can't seem to find where people are getting them from and I'm looking to find ones that say "Black Truffle Hoarder" or "Black Tea Hoarder" or even ones like "I love -insert your favorite dragon here-!"  I also would like a personal banner or something for a lineage project I want to do...

 

2.  ...SOOOooo, I know people talk about lineage projects and I want to know who I can talk to or ask for help on getting one going, like idk, a lineage project tutor?  I have a couple of ideas and I just want to make sure no ones' done it yet as I HOPE to be a well-known/prolific lineage breeder (I was totally inspired by the story of the Dorkface Lineage, #LineageGOALS)

 

3.  To backtrack a bit to my first question, on the topic of hoarding, like what constitutes being a hoarder, like are there guidelines to it?  Like for example, to really be considered a 'hoarder' does that mean you take in abandoned or inbreeds of your specific dragon you want to hoard? or are they only ever CBs of those dragons?  Or is a collection of lineages of that dragon?  I saw a user by the name of Belisar (sp?) who I see constantly in the trades asking for balloon dragons and when I went to look at their profile, I've never seen so many of one dragon in all my years playing this game!  I thought it was freaking AWESOME and I'd love to do that too with a few dragons (I'm looking at you Black Truffles, Falconiform, and Blue Firegem dragons! *grabby hands*).

 

Sorry for so many questions, I just didn't know where else to go to ask them.  I feel like such a newb in asking...😓

lineage projects are mostly a personal thing.  There are so many different types of lineages that it's a very subjective subject.  I would also recommend the breeding sub-forms.  Not to put a damper on your goals, because I very much hope you suceed, I would at least note that the Dorkface lineage got started in the very early days of dc, when the community was very small and everyone know one another.  That's why you hear so much more about it than: Dusks, Red soxs, or De'Hengel (sp?) which are other famous "lineages" though all three of those are more like Thuweds where everything on their scroll has a certain name suffix.

es I have!  I like the different 'types' of lineage looks, such as the checker and the spiral (I'm going to attempt this one)!  I did a search and didn't find a topic of the dragon type of lineage I want to do so I'm pretty sure my idea is indeed original, but also I don't know exactly who, if needed, I can ask to like also help breed eggs so that I can avoid inbreeding or if someone can gift me a CB egg or two to make sure my spiral comes along, because as it stands one of the dragons I need for my project, I didn't realize is actually hard to come by in the cave *shakes fist at Black Truffles* Y U SO HARD TO OBTAIN THO?

 

catch other things to trade for them if you have to.  I have a checker with Ice and Arias I'm working on.  I don't see enough Ice so I snipe other good things to trade for them and have gotten a good bit that way.  a note in your signature can also let people know you are looking for them. :)

Eep!  The idea of starting a thread terrifies me.  I got in trouble with the mods by accident once and had warning bars and the whole spiel. Ever since then, I'm terrified of anything that might cause the same.

Oh that is super helpful info about the breeding sub-forms, I'll have to go and check'em out!  Oh you aren't dampening anything, as I know it's a HUGE fever dream lol, but that makes a bunch of sense with the community not being as big then as it is today.  Yeah, I'm having a bit of trouble trying to come up with a suffix myself, as right now it's plain and long?  I'll figure it out I guess.  I try my best to catch what I can, as most times I'm SLOOOOWW, but yes, trading has been my main method of obtaining the ever elusive Black Truffle Dragons 😒  But thanks for the tip about the signature!  I will get right on it!

but also I don't know exactly who, if needed, I can ask to like also help breed eggs so that I can avoid inbreeding

Another one with possibly higher success chances, but also much stricter rules (aka you can get bans for joking around in their IRC channel ...):

You can also ask people who say they breed for free :)

I'll breed for free if you want, @bluedragon1139 ;)

 

Speaking of, I want to make a spreadsheet of my dragons, see what I'm still missing. Does someone have a list of ALL DC dragons, including dinos/rares/unbreedables/holidays/etc., sorted alphabetically, by any chance?

http://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/Which_egg_is_which%3F

Although some of the eggs are out of the usual order because they share a description with another breed. Still, it's pretty accurate.

If you prefer official names (Like "Holiday 2008" instead of "Holly", you might prefer the list in the encyclopedia: https://dragcave.net/dragonopedia

Is there a way to get two dragons to breed with a mate they are now rejecting if they bred successfully in the past?  I've got two dragons that bred successfully in the past (the pair has a dozen offspring), but I've noticed recently my pairs are messed up because these dragons are now refusing.  I last bred them successfully in 2011 and started breeding them again in 2018, which is when they refused each other.

If one of them is a holiday they may only breed successfully during the holiday breeding season for their breed. Refusals are turned off for holiday dragons during their breeding season.

 

If neither of them is a holiday then that should not be possible for them to refuse after breeding successfully. They may not always produce an egg, but to outright refuse to go near each other should not happen and is most likely a glitch.

Sorry for the late reply to everyone that's helping me out and answering my questions.  My browser doesn't let me type on the forum website for some odd reason so I have to do everything via mobile and sometimes that's wonky at best.  I don't know how to directly quote to someone right but @Fuzzbucket thank you for the link!, @Ruby Eyes thanks again for your help, as a matter of fact I believe you're the first person to help me out by fulfilling my birthday wishes🎂, @Princess Kiara that is super nice of you to help with breeding and I'll probably pm you for help once I get some things sorted out!  I answered everyone's PMs and thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the help and kindness you've all shown me!💙

@bluedragon1139 That shouldn't be happening. Try updating your browser or starting it in safe mode to disable all addons? Must be something you have installed.

Actually, if one of them is a holiday, there's a small chance they won't refuse again after a successful holiday breeding. I've had it happen to one Sweetling x Silver pair of mine. (Although I think I didn't even breed them during the holiday? It's been years, though, so my memory isn't that clear.) Just in case, use Fertility (both in season and after) to cover your bases. ;)

@Dragon_Arbock  I literally tried everything you suggested and it still won't let me.  It won't even show the type line and even with refreshing it might pop up but then won't actually type out anything, idk...but mobile is doing okay for me so meh.

@Dragon_Arbock  I tried IE and it's letting me type! but I don't like the risk associated with tracking on browsers sites...it's a kinda paranoia thing?  I had used Firefox like twice and it literally burned through 2 laptops of mine of 'blue screen of death' and come to find out that some extensions were letting viruses in.  I used Chrome until out of nowhere my email was being sold to I don't even know what sites (mostly unsavory and probably illegal/scam organizations) that my email got bloated with spam and malware and it took me AGES to clean it out and re-up all security features in my email and my last laptop but...unfortunately it was too late...it slowed that one down that the motherboard basically was heaving like a cat with a hairball every time I turned it on.  SO now with this NEW laptop, I'm as security laden as it comes lol.  I probably will stick to mobile, but thanks for the suggestion!

Chances are good that this didn't happen from your browser's side but on someone else's side who you communicated with (I actually stopped talking to someone because they refused to keep their own computer safe, which I noticed due to spam incidents).

It might even have been your email provider's fault - I know that I received spam from my own very old and never-used Yahoo address. The same happened to an old and forgotten Yahoo address of my mother as well as the unfortunately very actively used Yahoo address of an old colleague, so it's safe to assume that Yahoo itself had a big gaping security hole at some point with regards to their email adress lists.

 

I have received emails with spam and viruses, too, but I always used basic internet security - DO NOT OPEN anything from unknown senders. Especially not attachments. My laptop is 7 years old, and it looks like it could make another 7. It also had a proper internet security suite right from the beginning.

Try Opera ? (and on mobile, operalite !)

 

And use Malwarebytes (free) and run it regularly - https://www.malwarebytes.com/

 

(I assume you have decent antivirues ? I use avira - free and seems very solid.)

Hm. I haven't had issues with viruses in years, and I'm pretty lax. Someone got my email, but that was because my account details got hacked on the website's end (like in one of those big database hacks). I just changed it and continued on.

Also in most cases if you get a virus that bad you don't need to replace your whole computer, just the hard drive. Annoying, but if you keep backups, not too costly. But yeah, as people said, common sense, don't click things you can't trust, and run some scans every so often.

I've done more damage to my laptop by overheating it running a minecraft server, but 9 years later and two hard drives later it still works enough to web browse. (Ironically I had a newer laptop but killed that with a few drops of water and a motherboard is a lot less fun to replace).

I'm a dumb butt and can't edit my signature. I tried going to edit my profile but that doesn't work, and there are no options in the drop-down menu beneath my username for "edit signature." It's several years old and I am in serious need of updating it--could someone tell me? Thanks!

Nevermind, figured it out!
