I personally do not think that saying “offer” or any variant thereof without mentioning something even in a direction of what you might want is any different from leaving the text box empty, functionally. It doesn’t help anyone understand what you’re looking for.

 

So would it be acceptable to report such trades?

I more often than not, just put "offer" in my post. I do this because I really have no idea what I want. If you want the egg or hatchling being offered, you should make an offer and see what happens.

Not OK to report such trades, no. There's no law against just seeing what you can get. In trades on forum I quite often put "surprise me".

 

"Report" is for people putting song lyrics or foul language in there, or lying about what they have.

If that is true, then the disclaimer that trades that don’t help others understand what types of offers the trade creator is looking for should only be reported may be misinterpreted, or be considered inaccurate.

"offers" says exactly what im looking for.  I often take the first I get. because it's something I don't want but is desirable enough to not just chuck into the ap.  Never shopped at a flea market eh? make me an offer, what is this worth to you? because it's not worth much to me, but I know others will want it.  it's no different than people coming from the other side and randomly putting an offer up that isn't what you asked for "just in case" you'll take that instead.  If it bothers you, ignore those trades.

It is perfectly accurate. If I put "offers", it means I want ideas; I want to see what someone will offer and decide if I want it. If you don't want to offer at random, you don't have to. If you want the things up for trade, offer whatever you can find and see if it's accepted.  I have started new lineages as a result of things I was offered that I would never have thought of, never mind thought to ask for.

This, exactly. 

 

The warning for that Want box is meant for stuff like song lyrics, 'shout-outs' to specific users, etc (all of which were an issue when it was first introduced). Not wants that you personally don't feel are helpful or informative. 'Offers' is no different functionally then 'dummy egg' or 'what you think it's worth' and such, all of which are perfectly acceptable.

I don't think so... As annoying as it might be to see that if we want to make an offer, people do, sometimes, post trades without knowing what they might want, to see all the offers and accept the best, etc. and I think they should be allowed to do that. 

 

So it's our own discretion as to whether to offer on those trades or not. Personally I very rarely do unless I'm confident they'd be interested (because I've traded with the person before or have something I think is really good).

Having 'offers' as a want is not something that needs to be reported.

You don't have to report for this either. Everyone is able to see what is actually on offer.

Hi,

 

is there a limit of an amount of groups? I have over 30 now and will probably have over 150 in the future (if this is possible).

 

Thanks for your help!

No-one has hit a limit yet - but I am told some things start to act strangely if you have too many. Mostly to do with the number of dragons you view to a page - I think in the end you have to cut back to 250. It may be sorted now, though.

I have a Plated Colossus and a Mistletoe, and as you can see from their progeny list they've had holiday offspring together during their breeding season. But just now when I tried to breed them again, they suddenly refused each other. Is this a glitch?

Nope, common. Holiday breedings don't determine the refusal state, only the first non-holiday breeding does - always use Fertility on first non-holiday breeding!

Even if they refuse now, they'll breed during the holiday, so there's that!
