The Holiday Lineage

Holiday Dragon Breeding Project

Recommended Posts

I'm worried that this thread might not be active enough to keep adding new lines. Right now, we have 2 lines for 8 holiday releases for 3 different holidays; that's 48 lineages! For the more visual people (like myself) it looks like this:

I think we've all done a great job with so many of these lines! I'm just thinking that maybe...it might be a good place to stop? The signup lists just aren't as long as they used to be, which I think was the fun part of these lineages, and inactivity has hit some lists worse than others.  

 

However, I think there might be a fun way to close it out. With the CB holiday biome back for Christmas, it's possible that enough people were able to snag some CB Hollies to start one or two more lines. What do you guys think? Feel free to tell me I'm off my rocker with this suggestion of course! :lol:

I would love to see this continue, but I hear what helix9 is saying; there're not very many active participants anymore and without people it's hard to continue. I myself am not very active on the forum anymore.

 

I would love it if we could do a Holly one now that it's more available and hopefully more people got some CBs :D

@helix9: I hear you. Although, maybe with more CBs around, there may be more people who can join? Or people might want to join with their 2nd CBs (that is principally allowed, right?)?

Maybe even cutting things back to one lineage per breed & gender would help getting things less confusing for potential newcomers? (So two Halloween lines per year, but only one Christmas & Valentine.) It's not like these lineages take a lot of effort on the participant side... XD People willing to help with mod stuff woud probably be helfpul, though...

 

A Holly line would be awesome, now that there actually are CB hollys around! :wub: I would happily be a part of that!

I think it would be sad to discontinue this. A person by themself just can't do a proper holiday stair. If less people sign up, then less people sign up, it's still better than having to do things alone and no harm done. But maybe we could remove the lineages that are finished from the first pages, to make space for new ones?

I agree that we don't have to do two lineages per breed. Well maybe for halloween because there are two genders, but there isn't really a point doing more than one for valentines and christmas dragons is there?

I wish I had gotten a cb holly, but all my attempts failed, so if you do that lineage I'll not be able to participate :(

Actually, that's a good point. If we do just one line per gender, then people could be in the same lineage at least twice with their CB's, possibly one dragon early on and then another one later in the list. Halloween's not a problem since there aren't restrictions to the original batch of CB's so that would work just fine with the two lines.

This is also a good point. Maybe only have the most recent lineages on the front page, and then perhaps put the rest of them in a nice google doc for easy organization. I have the next two days off, so I might give this a go and see how it turns out...

 

So maybe a good plan would be to let Valentine's finish up for this year, and then start catching up after that. :D

I'm also not as active on the forums as I used to be, but I'd hate to see this lineage project end. I agree that only having one lineage per gender would be a good idea, and maybe with old holiday CBs available again more people will join. For instance, I now have CB Hollies, Yulebucks and Snow Angels and would love to participate those lineages.

Alright guys!! Hope you had some fun holidays! :D

 

I started up with the spreadsheet, and it's a biggie but I'll get it done as soon as I can. While I'm doing that, I would love someone to jump at the naming and voting process for new lines! Here are the holiday dragons that don't have lineages yet: 

 

Christmas 2007 - Holly (!)
Christmas 2016 - Snow Dragon
Christmas 2017 - Garland Dragon

 

Valentine's 2017 - Soulstone Dragon
Valentine's 2018 - Floral-Crowned Dragon

 

Halloween 2017 - Omen Wyrm

 

I think the goal is to choose one mate for the Christmas and Valentine's lines, and then two mates for the Halloweens (one male, one female). Who's got ideas?

I'm sorry I havent been active around here either. I will see if I can make some time in the next couple weeks to go to the holiday account and answer pms/ update the posts and figure out what line is where. I wish we had spoiler tags, I think the front posts would organize better that way.

 

I think one mate is a good idea, I'll add choices to the front pages as we go along

Spoiler tags? We have those now!

 

Spoiler

It's the big eyeball button when you go to make a post. I haven't actually used them before but they're quite nice!

I found that right after I posted it lol. I got the christmas all set up, I might have this finished by the weekend and then I'll start combing through the lineages and poking people.

Okay, so I consolidated all the Lines into three posts, one for each holiday. now they should be easier to find.

 

Next step will be to go through lines since last update and update them.

 

If there's anyone that can remake the images for the mates, I'd really appreciate it. I can host the images if you'd like.

 

and since Cinn has gone in active, is there someone else who can do the breeding chart like she used to?

I'd be glad to put some simple images together. I'll put them in an imgur album and send them once I finish.

 

ETA: It wasn't until doing these did I realize that, besides the Pumpkin/Pygmy lines that were the same because they were the only type of pygmies at the time, we also doubled up on Embers too! They get to have two Halloween lines, the Deadly and Malevolent. Whoops? XD

Sorry it took so long to get these lineages bred (2 yrs for each line!!) I checked to make sure a replacement egg hadn't been bred for either line, I don't think one was. 

I will check over the next few days to see if anyone wants the eggs. 

 

I'm not as active as I once was. Mainly it's because I have trouble navigating this site since it changed. Like now, how do you get the text to be different colors?

 

eta: Added new owners and figured out how to make color. :)

Yeah, looks like the old tag forms won't work anymore with the new forum. Now it's all on the bar with the other editing options.
