They're all earth element, and I don't think they had to be caveborn; it didn't say so. Glitch ?

@DarkellaLord The spring equinox is 20th March this year! 🌸

 

(Or maybe every year, haha...)

 

@purplehaze Thanks for the info! I was thinking that it's not always the same date since solstice dates change, too, and so does the autumnal equinox. But then I saw a table on Wikipedia that only shows years 2017-2027 and got confused. I was too lazy to read more myself... 😸

Spring equinox is Sunday, March 20. That should be when they change.

 

Edit: Ninja'd but just to clarify -- it is not always the same date. It can be March 19, 20, or 21.

From https://nationaldaycalendar.com/spring-begins-changes-annually/

The vernal equinox marks the moment the sun crosses the celestial equator. This is the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator, from south to north. The vernal equinox happens on March 19, 20, or 21 every year in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, this same event marks the beginning of fall.  Meteorologists mark the spring from March 1 through May 31st.

I know -- more info than you ever wanted. XD

 

And by the way, you can mark the DC seasons by the appearance of your Leetle Tree, if you have one on your scroll. So if you ever have a doubt if the season has changed yet, just check your LT. :) Of course that doesn't help with predicting the change.

For the raffle. I have 3 adult bred dragons, all laid on the 6th and grew up on the 11th. Two are hybrid Spotted teal drake and one is a harvest. I'm only showing two dragons eligible for the raffle, is it the two drakes because they are hybrid and the other doesn't count because it's bred instead of caveborn?

 

I've qualified and entered and all 3 of mine were bred, so that shouldn't be the issue. It does say earth-element *dragons*, so possibly the drakes wouldn't count but if that was true you'd have 1 instead of 2... Definitely sounds like a glitch.

Unless there was another "dragon" that @Tawanda001 missed? Does seem more likely to be a glitch, though.

My Spotted Teal should be my 3rd earth element dragon, so I should be able to see if it counts. It will be almost 2 days before it is grown, though. :(

My spotted teal counted.

I happened to look at the dark green dragon encyclopedia page and am wondering about this: "Colour/number of flowers appears dimorphic: females yellow (3), males red (2)"

 

Dark greens aren't dimorphic in terms of gender? The sprite with 3 yellow flower is the alt sprite right? I'm confused?

No, that's been a long-standing contradiction in it's info. I'm not sure if they were originally *intended* the have dimorphic flowers and that tidbit snuck into the encyclopedia even though it didn't turn out that way, or what... But yeah, it's not true.

Well, I have raffle weirdness, too, but it seems it is counting something that shouldn't be instead of the other way 'round. I just got a notification that I had met the requirements, but only two of the dragons I have raised since the end of February should count -- a Terrae that grew up on Feb. 28 and a Copper that just now grew up. Up until yesterday it was only counting one and nothing else that grew up today should count! It let me enter, though, so I guess I shouldn't complain.

The current sprites for the Dark Greens and the alt form came during the sprite replacement project iirc, so I think the alt might have been meant to be the female version? I don't know what happened there exactly, was before my time. I know after the project was done Lythiaren had planned to make a female sprite that was to be more cunning and dangerous in appearance (I think around the time the Femme Fatale project was going on?) but that didn't happen either unfortunately. So yeah, the dragon encyclopedia entry is canon but doesn't make much sense since the sprites aren't sexually dimorphic yet. I'd like to see a female regular sprite with three yellow flowers and a male alt with two red flowers but it's been a long time without any updates for that breed...

Anybody else having serious issues with the Lagmonster on the main site/forums/both? (It's both for me right now.)

Personally, I like them the way they are and hope they don't change, although an alt with red flowers might look kind of cool.

Nope, both the cave and forum are working at normal loading times for me.

Huh, well I am getting thrashed pretty hard by it, especially on the forums right now.

If you have a scroll with only one thing on it (as in get rid of everything else you amass as you go through the tutorial) does the tutorial EVER go away over time ?

Do users use any autoclickers? Because I never manage to catch rare eggs, although I refresh the page every second.

Autoclickers (and scripts and the like) are against the rules for catching.

 

It's a matter of finger speed and luck - sorry ! You've not been here very long - I have caught exactly ONE gold and 2 silvers myself - and I've been here since 2010. Patience is needed. Desperately needed.

I can't catch aeon and gemshard. But I saw in trading people who have a lot of CB gold with a catch difference of two or three hours.

There ARE people who are very very fast. And yes, there are cheaters. Don't be one of them. But I have traded for CB golds with stuff that others just wanted. I've bred things to fit what was asked for in a trade and all sorts. You'll get them all in the end.

 

Your best bet for gemshards is Sunday (random colours) and Monday to Wednesday (the original colours) - most of us are trying to get the newer colours. I haven't any CB of those myself.)

 

Do your aeons have to be CB ? there are a few in the hub right now, some CB, some bred.

Yes, I want CB aeon. Thanks for help!

Well, look in the hub and see what you can do to match what's being asked.

Is it possible to trade an egg for another egg through the Trading section on the site if you're egg locked? It seems like that slot would still be filled with the egg and not block me from swapping/trading it for another.

Yes it's possible, since you wouldn't be going over your limits. You can't, say, be locked and trade one egg for *two* eggs, but equal amounts will work.
