I think touch&hold should give you a context menu where you can select to copy the target URL?

Thank you, I'll try it.

Is there such a thing as a CB Alt Black? I was under the impression you could only obtain them from breeding. Has something changed? I see people asking for them in trades or the offspring of a CB Alt Black, and was just wondering. Thanks.

Many years ago, there was a glitch resulting in one "Commondant Lassard", and later, from christmas raffles (they were not monthly back then), when Runners Up prizes existed (HM = Honorable Mentions), they were choosable by the winners. I think 3 chose one? Many others chose CB Holly, and 2 chose CB hybrid.

(Oh but your account is old enough, I think you knew about the christmas raffles, at least :) )

I do remember now that you reminded me, thank you. That makes sense now. :)

If an egg gets auto-abandoned, how long after that will it appear on the AP?

 

That depends completely on the times in the AP. When the abandoned egg gets down to the times being shown in the AP, it will show up. (Be aware you can't pick up your own auto-abandoned egg though, unless someone else picks it up and abandons it again.)

I have a question please. My vampire "bit" an egg and the other dragons were repulsed and threw it away from me. Actually, it happened twice! How do I retrieve   them?  Also how can I prevent that from happening again?

That's just one of the risks with a Vampire bite. You cannot retrieve the egg in the AP unless someone else picks it up and re-abandons it. You can post a note about it in your sig and someone might return one, or both, but there are no guarantees that this will happen..

 

There is no way to prevent this from happening again, although one of my Vamps who did this regularly finally allowed their last victim to stay. I think it happens with about 10 percent of the bites.

 

Good luck!

It goes to the AP, and since you were its last owner, you cannot get it back directly. Someone else has to pick it up and drop it first before you can pick it up again (the AP does not let an egg's last owner grab an egg).

And nope, you cannot prevent it. It has about a 25% chance of happening, by my count.

There is even a thread about it:

Actually I think that is the female that is looking at her foot.

I'm undecided. 🤔 They both look like they could have painful feet.

my Zyu eggs are good at getting sick right before they hatch. *sigh*

my Zyu hatchies are good at taking their sweet time gendering too - like the one i currently have, the hatchie is at 5d and still ungendered. *glares at him*

 

I'm having this problem with Zyus, too.

There are a small group of breeds that seem to be 'stubborn', needing more stats to grow and getting sick relatively easy. Zyus are among them, as well as Prizes (at least they used to be, haven't had a sick Prize in awhile). I don't think we've ever known *why* that happens with certain breeds, though.

Trying to figure out what just happened. I just now got a notification for one of the counting threads on the games forum that I follow saying someone had just posted there. When I clicked on the notification it took me to the post, which says it was posted 12 hours ago, but I know for a fact that that post was not there when I posted the one that is right below it, or even as much as four hours AFTER I posted.

I notice that you changed your signature in the hopes of getting your Vampire eggs back. But if you do not display your name on your scroll (which is an option in your account so that people know the eggs were bred/came from your scroll), players may have trouble finding you.

And of Night Glory, you only own a freezie - don't know if that counts as owning the breed?

It does. I have only frozens of lumina and BBW. And they count.

I'm missing 5 breeds as adults (balloon, black tea, imp.fleshcrowne, water walker, and spitfire).


Blast from the past, from my question on which breeds were missing from my scroll. The weirdness is that there are 276 breeds currently and I am showing 275. When I look at my Night Glory frozen hatchling, and click on the breed, it tells me I own 0 adults and 0 hatchlings. See screenshot. 

It looks like it is not counting my frozen hatchling. Unless I am missing something.

@missy_  The hatchie is from 2013 and the Encyclopedia doesn't count anything from before the Encyclopedia feature was introduced (mid-2014 I believe). That shouldn't affect your *scroll* breed-count though. 

edit: Kyanite. Do you have a Kyanite? I looked through your scroll and it isn't there between Kovos and Labrodorite.

@HeatherMarie ugh, you are correct! @Ruby Eyes had originally caught that. I can’t believe in all this time I have failed to collect any Kyanite pygmies ... :ph34r: soon to remedy that, I hope ... thanks for the explanation about the frozen Night Glory baby. I was concerned when it read “0” but now it makes sense. :)

What is the current position on ad blockers? I am having problems with offensive sexual content in ads both on the forum and in the Cave and reporting them to Google does nothing. The same ads come right back on the next page. I'm tired of seeing these sickening ads.
