I'm coming back after a reasonably long hiatus, and I seem to recall the Stone dragon having dimorphism.  Was this my imagination?

They didn't, alas. That said, if you were around for when Ascension sprites were discussed in public, you might be remembering ascended Stones from that thread? ...maybe there even was one in the La Femme project while that was public; I sadly don't remember if there were dimorphic Stones in there that ultimately didn't make it onto the site!

 

(Heck, I myself sometimes get my wires crossed with La Femme. I spent a while confused about the male Purple sprite cited as an 'old sprite' in the fandom wiki, since I indeed remembered seeing it, but! It was only ever in that thread, not on the site itself. It took other oldies telling me that a few times before I accepted it. XD)

Is there a way to put my tree on the top of my scrool, whit out change the Default order of my dragons?

Use manual custom sort, and give it a negative number.

 

If you don't want the growing stuff to go above it, make sure NOT to check that option after you save..

Is there a way to retrieve eggs from the AP that are under the displayed time?

Example: The AP currently shows eggs at 5 days 8 hours to 5 days 10 hours.

What if I wanted to retrieve an egg lower than 5 days? Is it not possible?

 

I bred a few lineages to be randomly picked up at the AP and am worried the ones that didn’t get picked up (no clicks / views) will die (despite them being pixel dragons 😅). But, if there’s no way, then at least now I’ll know the risks / consequences of breeding for the AP.

No, because they'll have shown up and be picked up already. People inevitably pick up eggs that are displayed lower than the average AP time. Your dragons have probably all been grabbed already. It's up to the grabbers what they do with the eggs they pick up--some might bite them, some might neglect them purposefully, some might forget about them.

 

If the user has "accepting aid" in their message you can assist, but otherwise that's the risk of APing eggs. Gifting is somewhat less risky, but still not a guarantee for anything; once the egg is off your scroll it's up to the new owner to do what they want.

@Shadowdrake - Thought so. I don’t mind the biting, experimenting, etc. of what they do with the egg. Just the mere thought of the egg dying in the AP is a bit of a letdown; any egg for that matter. Thanks for letting me know though! It’s good to know for future reference.

Yeah, an egg dying in the AP specifically is really unlikely; it only happens during the holiday blockage due to being ungrabbable, or really really specific timing by a user dropping an egg about to die, or a glitch in the AP (which has never happened badly enough to make eggs start dying, as far as I know).

@Shadowdrake - If it's "really unlikely," then I guess breeding to the AP isn't that bad after all. I just thought with plenty of eggs in the AP, it's hard for most users to grab them and give them a home. There will be a few stragglers dying here and there. But, perhaps I need to be more patient, lol.

Lowest time is always first. The lower an eggs time the more likely it is picked up. The only exception is holidays because the holiday eggs are shown before everything else so regular eggs can and do die then.

@DragonLady86 - Alright, I'll keep that in mind. Thank you (both) for the reassurance, lol. 😊 And, I'll remember not to send anything to the AP during holidays.

So, been out of the loop with new websites lately, does any website have a tool to check what dragons you have, what ones you don't and how many of each?

No.

 

Sorry. (I wasn't aware that there ever had been one.)

Best way is use the temporary breed sort option on the scroll page and compare to the encyclopedia. Or keep a spreadsheet. Both are tedious, but not a lot of options.

I swore one website did but not sure. I haven't checked any websites lately to see.

The dragcave API never returned information about breed, and scraping the dragcave website itself for text is a great way to produce lag so it's not allowed for fansites to do that, so no fansite that lived for more than a few weeks would provide that information.

I had an interesting problem and am not sure how I got it.  I bred an Aria to a Gold Tinsel (if that matters). My egg was Aria, my hatchling followed suit. The adult is a Pink dragon. (PM me and I'll provide a code/link if you need it.)

 

Is there a thread I missed on this?

Are you sure it was an aria egg? Arias can breed pink dragons occasionally, but they're usually pink during the whole time.

Since these are all adults maybe I won't get burned. The Pink is now an adult and it was not a pink egg nor hatchie in the first image but I didn't think to save the images. I did not notice the pink dragon until it had grown up. ( Jukebox Er Pink, last adult Pink on page 14 scroll. )

Odd. Arias do produce Pinks from time to time, but they start as Pink eggs, not Arias. There is no way to tell now what the egg and hatchling looked like, but I have never heard before of one that went Pink only when it grew up. It is not something that is supposed to happen.

You're not going to be burned or otherwise punished for talking about your own dragons on the forums. You can even post eggs and hatchies in specific areas now, and have always been able to link adult dragons.

 

Also your scroll is set to hide adults so no one can see it anyway.

You can search the specific dragon by name and see it that way, although you can't see the whole scroll.

Yeah, but they mentioned it being on a specific page so they must have thought we could see it on theirs.

I'll just pretend it was pink all they way through since no one is worried. Thanks for all your help.

Is there a way to save how I filter my dragons? It never saves, and I want to only see my ungrouped dragons. Is there a way to change it like you change the sorting order of the dragons? I think I've seen other accounts do that, but I have no idea how
