That function seems to have been removed. You could use your private notepad in Account Settings => Edit Profile to save drafts, even though that's not exactly a comfortable way of saving drafts :(

 

Dang. I want to be able to save some draft...


I wonder if I can send things to myself as a draft, and then add people later to send it out? Would it pop up in people's messages? Or get buried in favor of newer stuff?

 

Actually, can I test that with you, Ruby Eyes?

Forever, as far as I can tell. If you keep scrolling to the bottom of your inbox, it will load additional batches of messages again and again, whenever you think you've hit rock bottom. I've gone back 3 years this way already ...

So hurrah for no deletes then! 


I wish the Search function went back more than a year though. It's nice to know the messages I've saved for laughs or history aren't just gone forever.

Want to test with me? I know that you do get notified (if you've opted for PM notifications in general) when you get added to an existing conversation.

Or that they'd add search by recipient/sender back to the PM search ...

Oh, that's good to know! 

But, yeah, I want to test it. It won't matter if I can't send a PM to myself after all. Let me send a quick one now.

That would be nice too. You can search by "Message" and/or "Title" and filter by "Conversations start by Others," but not just purely search by "Username."

Oh, that works - done it already. It instantly tells you that you cannot reply since all other participants have left XD Try to add me to it then?

You used to be able to, until a few months ago ...

I was wondering why that happened... I took a pic.

 

I was like, "But I haven't left yet?" XD

 

Looks like adding you, and seeing you reply made it active though! Good to know!

Yuck? Why they did they remove it? Bring it back!

When I start typing a message in the reply box, and then leave the page, my draft is still there when I revisit it later along with a little banner at the bottom of the page telling me my previous content has been restored. That works for drafting but I'm not sure how consistent it is or if it works across devices.

 

edit: nvm this is about responses to threads, not about PMs

The same thing works with PM's too, I've noticed, but only if you are replying.

 

It doesn't work if you are starting the conversation...

 

I've tried.

That's because existing message conversations have an ID with which the forum can associate the draft. On a completely new message, there ain't one.

It also restores stuff I previously sent to the same recipient.

I know that this may sound weird but ...

My scroll is rather large  .... and sometimes I find a dragon I want at the end of my scroll

The only way I can do it is by the Grid Custom sort ... down 12,000 dragons

It is so frustrating when I lose the cursor and my place and need to restart at times

It would be nice if I could go BACKWARDS  too

So...  at dragon one could go back to dragon 12,130 and do an ascending search for the spot desired

@orphaned I use Manual Custom Sort for this. Enter a number that's large enough to be the highest on your scroll, in that input box next to your dragon, and save.

I think the highest possible number for this is somewhere around 32767, and the smallest (will always be at the top) around -32767.

thank you so very much:thankee:

 

I never really quite understood what that sorting choice meant ... until now

 

this site truly is brilliantly set up 

 

as are those who understand it ... such as yourself      :hug: :flower: :thankyou:

 

:bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy: :bouncy:   the sorting is now so much easier ... and FASTER !!!  :D

You should be able to get all your messages if you haven't deleted them.  once you reach the "end" it should load more.  I still have my first ARK invite and it's 7 years old. One good thing about the new forum.  every message ever was restored when it updated so you would have had to delete them again since that time.

Actually, I think they were only restored as long as at least ONE participant still had it in their inbox OR sent box. I didn't get ALL of my old deleted stuff back, otherwise I'd have gotten several tenthousand messages back with the update XD

dunno.  I know I went through everything and re-read them before re-deleting them just because.  but I previously deleted everything.  I never had more than 5 messages at a time and that only usually around holidays when I do a lot of gifting.

The persons with whom you talked probably did not delete them. They still had it all in their sent box, and the forum migration tool didn't care whose message box had contained the old stuff - they just put copies into both yours and theirs.

So how exactly does one unlock the ethereal version of Celestials in their encyclopedias? Now that I've decided to go through and try to have three of every adult to get all the unlocks, I noticed it only shows the corporeal, even if I have 7 adult celestials who are usually in ethereal stance (and also a frozen hatchling, so by default it's also ethereal unless I corporealize it). I saw some people discussing this on the wiki from a while back, but there was no answer there.

It's easiest done by clicking on other players ethereal Celestials. You can ask for help in the Encyclopedia Helpers thread - people are usually happy to corporealize  their dragons if someone requests it (same with Scaleless Luminas, Aeons and Bolts that have recently used their BSA, etc).

Ethereal ones should be easy. Most Celestials spend most of their time in the ethereal state. Mine are ethereal now if you want to click on them -- they are on page 5 of my scroll (sorted 250/page). If it is actually the corporeal that you need then I would be willing to corporealize them for you if you let me know. :)

Ah, I see. I had wondered if there was a way to do it by owning them (like how you can do it by observing or owning, right) and was confused since I own so many that are pretty much always ethereal, and yet that was the color variant that wasn't unlocked. Weird to me that the corporeal version is what unlocks when they spend most of their time not corporeal! But hey, thanks guys -- I'll view other people's ethereal Celestials then :)

Here's 41 ethereal Celestials for you to view. XD

I dunno if this should be in trades or here, but what should a CB Stone dragon be worth? I'm mating them with Waterhorses, but it seems to me that there are way more Waterhorses out there. Hardly anyone has any Stone hatchies.

May have something to do with the Holly Contest going on, lots of people are collecting Waterhorses for the contest or to trade for people in the contest, so maybe that's why more people have them on hand. I think they're the same level of rarity though!

Is there a place for this year's Festival of Eggs spriters to post about their creation?  I know some spriters provided information in the Festival of Eggs thread, which is now closed.  I don't want to go through 31 pages of posts to look for the information. XD  Please help. :)  Thanks.

I am curious, is it possible to obtain alt blacks and alt dark green dragons from CB eggs? Or is it limited to breeding?

Only bred eggs of Black, Dark Green and Undine can alt.

 

(You sometimes may see some CB Black alts in lineages, but these have been acquired on special occasions such as the christmas raffles some years back, when honorable mentions were still given out.)
