One or twice in the past month, yes, actually! I always stupidly clicked it away before getting a screenshot. I had the impression it happened when there were multiple clicks of people at the same time, but that might not have been the cause.

I doubt that was the reason this time. It happened at about 2 minutes after the hour and the egg had been there since the hour drop. And it was a Split, which isn't usually in high demand.

Picked up an egg from the cave and this is how it showed up.on the "get" page. When I click on the image, the egg shows just fine on the view page.

Yes. Mostly with xenos.

I've confused myself on Holidays. I know how long the breeding period is, but I've absolutely confused myself on other dates.

 

The new breeds release on the holiday date (Val is Feb. 14, Hal Oct 31, Xmas Dec 25) but when do the old breeds' CBs appear? Is it the same time as when the breeding period starts or ? 

 

I know this is probably posted somewhere but I just can't find it ^^'

old CBs start with breeding yeah. There's a 7th biome that pops up along the others, can't miss it.

Weird question, but I seem to have noticed a few trades recently in the trade hub advertising SAlt lineages, where none of the dragons in the lineage... actually appeared to be spriter's alts. Is it possible I'm egregiously misunderstanding the terminology, or were these people incorrectly advertising the dragons????

It's probably people misunderstanding what Salt lineages are. There's currently a trade advertising 2gs from SAlts, except... they're just normal halloween dragons. You're 100% correct on the terminology, don't worry!

 

Although, there are a couple Salts I sometimes have trouble identifying. Not in the case above, but one of the mutamore alts and the shadow walker alts can sometimes be hard to spot in a lineage if you aren't familiar. I know I've definitely thought that a dragon wasn't a salt before, even if it was ^^

Thank you!! Glad I am not going crazy haha. I was probably looking at the same trade you mentioned, and I was seriously squinting at those dragons trying to see where the recolor was 😂

Winter Magi, too. This is Saltkin. Notice the silver of the wings, shoulders and arms is gold in the Salt? You can only just barely tell! :) It's that subtle.

Can I set up forum notifications so I get an in-browser notification even if I don't have the forum opened in any tab? I thought that was how in-browser notifications worked, but I only get them after I open the forum, which is kind of useless to me. I use Firefox if it matters.

That would require the DC forums to have direct access to your computer/browser in order to send you the notification while it's not open, so no.

Was the Fertility BSA tweaked at some point to completely prevent refusals, or did I imagine that? I know that using Fertility reduces the chances of refusal, but is it foolproof these days? Can't find any recent (2019–2020) threads to make sure, so it seems that my memory has betrayed me.

I think it is still possible for a pair to refuse even with fertility, but the chance is drastically reduced. I'm petty sure I had a Turpentine refuse in spite of fertility,but they are notoriously picky breeders. I do a lot of breeding of new pairs and that is the only one I can recall.

Actually it is possible through Mozilla's web push. Apparently the forum doesn't do that though.

 

ETA another question. The wiki page about Halloween says

Quote

A special Halloween biome also becomes available, allowing users to pick up cave-born eggs of past Halloween dragons.

is this true? I'm just now coming back after a 3-year break and I was regretting that I didn't have the chance to pick up CBs of the last Halloween breeds. Does this mean I'll have a chance to get them this year?

Most likely. We had them for a few years in a row now (since 2017, I think), so it's likely that it'll return this year as well - same with holiday and valentine's dragons.

It is indeed possible, but I believe the last thing Invision has said is that it has poor support on iOS/Safari so they aren't investing in it?

Why is the email notification of a new forum post(new release) 4 hours late? 😤

Why am I getting, "As you reach the summit of the mountain, you see many large dragons scattered about, some with hatchlings.

You expected to see some eggs, but there are none to be found." when I go to the Cave? :(

New release is happening, so eggs are taken fast. Try to be there at the 5-minute shuffles?

I've been at four 5-minute shuffles at the top of the minute mark so far with no change. Regardless of which habitat. I wonder if it's my internet connection...?

Alpine, Desert and Volcano will probably stay empty for another couple of hours (your quote above says you've tried in Alpine). Stick to the Coast, Jungle & Desert for a chance at the new eggs?

Oh, thank you! Are they a limited release or will they stick around?
