Tiny Little Questions

Hey folks, maybe I never noticed before, but why are my Zombies active during the day today? Is there any significance to it being the 31st of the month? Thanks in advance. :)

Yes, Zombies are visible all day every 31st.

 

Oh, okay! Thank you.  I took an extended break and was not around when the various subtypes of zombies were introduced. Also "back in the day," we could only make Zombies on Halloween and that changed (I wasn't around for that change, either).  I don't recall anything about the 31st.  I wonder when the "visible on the 31st" rule came into effect?  ETA: Per the wiki, it looks like this may have been implemented on Aug. 14, 2016?

 

 

 

Also just curious: What is the reasoning behind them being able to be seen on the 31st of the month? :)

 

Thanks, all.

IIRC they were always visible all day on 31st of the month. I don't ever remember them not being.

wasn't it just the tombstones originally?  with the actual zombies becoming visible after the tombstones stopped disappearing.

You may be right - I just remember how one used to look forward to 31st :) (In the UK I can see them every morning, mind. )

Dang, that's lucky. I never get to stay up late enough to see my zombies except on Fridays or during summer vacation (stupid school days)! I wish we had a BSA that let zombies be visible. I mean, it's totally a useless BSA, but cool for those who want to see their zombies. XD

Secret tip - you can see your Zombies in manual/table custom sort!

Is it still possible to get a winter egg even though it's spring now?

Nope. You get Spring eggs now instead.

So, I haven't been active on the forums since before the initial upgrade. Has PMing changed, and am I being an idiot? I've sent PMs to a couple of people recently, and neither has responded. Both messages say they haven't even been read, but I know both of the people I've PMed to be active on the forum. So, am I missing something? I press "Compose New", fill in the person's user name, subject, and my message, and then press "Send". Surely there's no more to it than that???

 

Sorry if this has been asked five billion times.

That's exactly how you send PMs. The recipients might not have seen the notification for new PM yet - I've been told it's easy to miss on mobile.

Okay. I didn't think it could possibly be more complicated than that. Thanks for your quick reply!

Why do people always ask for your forum and scroll name when filling out a form?  I get why they ask for the scroll name, but the forum name is already shown.

Record-keeping. It's easier to copy and paste a form than to fill in the person's name every time.

Sometimes, it's also lack of knowing what it's for elsewhere.

 

E.g. in the 3 holiday lineage aid threads, the first post asks for forum name and PM link in its form, but the OP is never actually maintaining any lists themselves that would justify that. I think they just copied from other breeding threads without thinking about what those are used for there: for copy/pasting to a different place - typically some assembled listing on the front page.

THANK YOU! I have missed SO MANY PMs because I use my phone a lot, and I feel really bad when I get back on my computer and notice I have like 8 unread messages, some from weeks ago. It makes me feel like an awful person. I really do NOT mean to ignore anyone, it's just super hard to notice on a phone. 

 

This is a question similar to the above...the places that ask for your forum/scroll name...I HATE my scroll name, but I'm fine with sharing it to join a raffle or gift group. However, I keep my scroll hidden 99% of the time. Ever since I started doing this, I've never lost a dragon and have only had a few (due to Stun and ER status) get sick. Is it considered rude to ask the person in charge of whatever raffle or group if you can keep your scroll hidden, but offer to unhide it if they ever want to check and make sure you kept the gift/prize/whatever? Or should I just risk viewbombing (this has happened to me SO MANY TIMES) and keep my scroll visible or just not enter any special groups/raffles?

I think it would be acceptable to ask.

I agree. Most people who frequent the forums are aware of the chance of view-bombing, so they should understand your reason for asking.

Hey y'all, did you see the cave? It's being weird saying there are 0 users online in the AP & biomes for a while now. Doesn't seem like anything else is wonky. :D so just sharing a random observation

Yeah, zeroes everywhere. And yet I still keep SOMEHOW missing CB Monarchs. Seen two, they were taken immediately. Why!? Who is stealing my Monarch babies!? XD

I posted a trade in the trading hub, but I must have done something wrong. My wants seems to be blank. Any idea what I did wrong? I filled it out, but nothing is showing.

I don't see any trades posted that don't have a 'want'.

OK. Maybe it's just the way my page is showing. I posted 2 CB Blue Ridgewings and "want" a CB Lumina, but on my page the "want" is blank. It's my first post on the hub, so I wasn't sure what to expect.

I looked as far back as 4 hours ago and I don't see that trade at all, maybe try to post it again?
