OK - so removing you takes it out of YOUR box but not out of mine, and deleting it takes it out of mine and not yours. Useful to know....

Okay, you know the bar with all the participants' names?  Just above the top of that bar, at the right-hand side of the screen, there should be a little label that says "Options".  If you click it, then it drops down a little menu which includes "delete conversation".

 

I assume that that's how people are supposed to delete messages, anyway.  If there's another way, I've never found it.

I don't see an options button - only filter by and sort by.

On the right when you are reading the message.

You can also delete messages from the list by putting a checkmark in the box beside them and then clicking at the bottom to delete them.

I'm not sure how that all looks on mobile, though, if that is what you use. The options should still be there somewhere, though.

Gotcha.  Thanks.  I'm using a tablet so I suppose that's mobile.

Can two dragons who've bred before reject each other?

If one is a holiday and you only bred them during that holiday season  yes it is possible, otherwise no.

 

Fertility reduces the chances for refusing if used before the first breeding.

 

Cave superstition* says if one is a holiday, still use fertility even though refusals are turned off if breeding for the first time.

 

*superstition because there is no way to determine if this really changes anything or not.

Thank you very much!! And I'll be sure to remember your tips once I catch any holiday dragon!

If I remember correctly, TJ has changed it so that if the first breeding of a holiday does not count at all for future compatibility if it is during the holiday season.

The mate will also not be moved to the top of the list for future breedings. Basically the dragons are like "umm, so... this thing we did at the office holiday party? Let's pretend it never happened".

So the pair has to be bred for the "real first time" again outside of the season, and THEN it is important to use fertility.

Of course if you have enough Purples available it doesn't do any harm to use it during the holiday season anyway. Just never forget to use it for the first out-of-season breedings.

 

The simplest solution is to test-breed (with fertility!) all holiday x non-holiday pairs before the holiday season. Then any complicated holiday breeding rules don't matter.

... Except the one that says that even a pair that refused can still breed during the season. ("Normally we hate each other and we always will, but I like your Halloween costume...")

However, if a pair refuses, I would rather try to get a replacement mate whenever possible, so that the holiday dragon can produce eggs with the same mate all year long.

Had this discussion a few weeks ago with someone.

So here's what TJ said/changed back in Feb. 2018:

Quote

 


* Fertility will not be removed from pairs during event breeding, since it has no effect anyways.

* Pair compatibility will be completely ignored during event breeding. This means that new pairs that breed during an event but would refuse otherwise will not be marked as such after the event, potentially wasting a breeding (if you breed them and they refuse anyways) but allowing the use of fertility after the event.
 

 

 

edit (now that I'm home and can use my computer rather than mobile): at least I can confirm that using fertility before holiday breeding season, breeding in season will not remove it. I always fertilize my CB Shimmer directly after breeding to not forget it for the next time. So even if I bred her in holiday season, fertility's still till the first out-of-season breeding. (hope that makes any sense, never was good in explaining things...)

 

And his whole post and the thread about:

Why is the dark lumina parent of this AP-found egg naked?

Luminas had a recent change (possibly bug? Help thread's still unaddressed) that caused them to stay naked for weeks after being bred to naked-causing mates instead of the normal 24 hours. It was discovered a few weeks ago and I believe has passed 1 month of not changing back.

Oh, interesting. He indeed has turpentine offspring.

Let me apologize before hand. But I think I have a tiny little question. Can someone direct me to the "egg identification"? forum please?

Another breeding question: I've seen people talk about "ratios" and breeding certain dragons to change these ratios. What does this stuff mean?

The chance of getting one dragon breed over another. Breeding lots of a common breed can change your chances of getting the less common mate over time.

The specifics about 'ratios' are unknown to us players, but basically each breed has some type of designation regarding how plentiful they should be. If there aren't enough of that breed around, the site will make more, which often makes trying to breed lineages difficult with common breeds. Some people try to breed a ton of a common breed specifically to get more out there, in order for the chance of getting something *else* from breeding to increase.

Ah that makes a lot of sense now, thank you! I suppose these ratios are important to take note of when building certain lineages.

Not particularly: it just makes things frustrating rebreeding over and over. It *is* something to be concerned about for, say, prize ious, but if you're working on a regular lineage you'll succeed eventually regardless of ratio difference, it's just a matter of when and if you have patience or want to swap out for something more equal in ratios.

The 25th is the official start of holiday breeding, right?
