Thank you !!! Some players like M.._M.._M...simply believes, only their trades are important. grrrrrrrrr.... I hope, one day it will become forbidden to trase some trade every few minutes. Till then it will be anoying.

You can always try to report them and see what happens anyway.

Thank you. I hope, someone from the staff will tell me. Because one player literally make same trades almost every hour and it is really annoying.. I have asked him to stop doing this. And he asked: is it not allowed? OMG... Just imagine, all players would be so selfish :(

 

Maybe anyone knows, who is "responsible" for market? Any admin, mod...

I'm sure we were told somewhere that you couldn't repost all the time - but I can't find it.

Where would you put a post about digital art programs?

 

I want to make a thread about programs (computer and mobile ones) that are good for spriting, but I don't know where to post it?

Has anyone been tracking when the Rifts drop in each biome?

Pilauli has a link in their signature to a spreadsheet they have been keeping, but I'm not sure it shows any real pattern. They seem to drop in the coast all the time plus one other biome each hour.

Hi folks, I have a question about the Stun BSA. I stunned three hatchlings that were under 3 days for potential trading.

 

However, now I am scroll locked and ready to forego trading and let them grow up. 

 

I know it adds an extra day, but I read they can't get views for 48 hours. I stunned them around 4:55 p.m. EDT on July 4. One is at 2 days 13 hours and two are at 2 days 21 hours.

 

Not sure when they will be able to grow up. Thanks in advance!

Hi Ruby Eyes, and thank you. :)  I ended up trading them after all as a nice offer appeared.  From what I read on wikia, the hatchlings can gain views after trading?** (Though they cannot be re-stunned).

 

ETA: That would have been a long time to wait! It is funny that just as I contemplate removing them from trade, THEN a perfect trade appears. Why does this happen? XD

 

**(I looked that up prior to trading, but also had them advertised as stunned)

I'm not sure about that - I got a hatchie in a trade recently and it must have been stunned (the trader had found it in the AP, so we don't know...) and it resolutely gained no views for DAYS. It felt like more than 2. And the help page states that influence and incubate wear off - it says nothing about stun. The wiki says it wears off, but I'm not convinced.

That seems to b e the case.  However a while back, I traded with someone and told them the hatchie was stunned, but it should be able to grow up in 6 hrs (which is when  it should have worn off, by my log data.)  It grew up within seconds of them accepting the trade.

Fuzz, I can confirm that it is as the dragon cave wikia states; the hatchies that I had stunned and were teleported via trade to their new owner grew up immediately. So yes, stunned hatchies do start receiving views again after they have been teleported. :) At least they did in my case. Otherwise, as Ruby Eyes pointed out, I would have been waiting two days for them to hatch! :blink: This is what I get for my hiatus ... not knowing the intricacies of  DC events that took place in my absence.  :blush:

 

Just musing aloud here: I suppose in a real pinch one could theoretically remove the stun like one removes an influence, except in the case of removing the stun, we risk having the hatchies grow up on the helper's scroll.  Anything stunned 4 days and under that could, and probably would, insta-hatch on another's scroll, wouldn't be worth the risk of teleporting it.

The wikia appears to be correct. Imzadi, your trade operated per the wiki, which states about the Stun BSA:

 

"Hatchlings can gain views/clicks if they are abandoned or traded/transferred, though stun can't be used on the same hatchling again."

 

and 

 

"... a hatchling can continue gaining views immediately after trading."

 

The Stun BSA "can be used on any growing hatchling on the user's scroll, and adds an additional day to the hatchling's timer as well as simultaneously preventing it from receiving any views for 2 days." But if the hatchling is abandoned, traded, or transferred, it begins receiving views/clicks again.

A very simple way to check would have been to go to your public scroll link and refresh it a few times. If the hatchie gains any views then it's not stunned and either not in hatcheries or hatcheries are very slow. However I can confirm witnessing a teleported hatchling that I know had been stunned growing up as soon as it hit 4 days, hours before the two days were up.

Fuzz, as I reread what you wrote, that is really weird! A hatchling that you got in a trade that received no views for days after you received the hatchling in a trade. Did it look ... sometimes it is hard to tell, at least for me, but did it have that "stunned" look? Even if it didn't, it sounds like it was, if it wasn't gaining any views. Odd that teleporting it plus its origin from the AP didn't change that. Sounds like the original owner abandoned it in frustration for it not being able to grow up sooner. LOL

 

I guess to check if it had ever been stunned, one could try to stun the hatchie, since to the best of my knowledge, it can only be done once per hatchie regardless of multiple owners.  I can't find what message would come up if a "stun" has already been placed on a hatchie; seems like there would be a message.  (The wiki gives other messages, but not this one.)

(Already stunned), like trying to influence an influenced egg will give you (Already influenced).

 

Stunned hatchlings look identical to non-stunned hatchlings. There is no sprite change.

Ohhh, I see, thank you. I misread the below quote, which was referring to the Bolt sprite. I knew the Bolt sprite changed, but for some reason, I was also thinking the hatchlings did (in my mind, I suppose they did XD)

 

"When used, the sprite of the Bolt dragon changes to one with static electricity surrounding it- once the cooldown wears off, the sprite returns to normal." -- wiki

Prize dragon raffle seems a little wonky.  I have two grown rift dragons from coast but my raffle entry counter is reading 1/3.  :dry:  38w0V  d7mId

I have been getting noticeably bad lag for some time now on both the forum and the main site, I found this old topic about it but wondered if anyone else has had recent issues with lag.

No particular lag here except on the hourly drop....

Yes.

 

Also @missy_ - bear in mind that the wiki is NOT official. There IS  sometimes stuff in there that is wrong. That's why I hope for an official statement from the boss. @LadyLyzar  please poke ?

Hmmm I am getting lag all over; on forum and in Cave. 

 

fuzz, thanks for explaining about the wiki; I didn’t know that. Have there been particular instances where the wiki has been incorrect? I rely on it fairly often. Hoping it is a good source in general.

@missy_ Just check body types, and you'll find a number of mistakes. Guilded Bloodscales, for example, are listed as Eastern Dragons on the wiki, but implied to be Western in the Encyclopedia. Or Terraes, which are listed as both "Western" and "Wingless" on the wiki, but only as "Wingless" in the Encyclopedia. I'm sure there're more, but it seems like some of the obvious errors have been corrected. And rarity ratings are often quite different if you look at the wiki and at the market prices. Or would you classify a dragon as uncommon which can be bought for a whopping one hundred shards? Which is what happened with Aqualises, Ashes, Boreals, Carmines and a lot of others.  (I honestly don't intend to go through the whole alphabetical list of dragons.) But Balloons, at 500 shards, are "common" according to the wiki. What the duck?
