04/04/10 - Festival of Eggs

Recommended Posts

This was so much fun, and best of all, non-stressful! I luves it.

I hope, like others do, that we keep the basket permanently.

Mostly non-stressful. Since I didn't find out about it until mid-afternoon on Monday I was a little worried that I might not get them all. Fortunately I had just enough time.

 

I quite enjoyed the event otherwise and love looking at the beautiful eggs!

I loved the easter egg hunt! Not only did I actually get them all, I managed to catch a pygmy dragon! I finally caught a hard to catch dragon! And then I found out they only breed with other pygmy dragons so I'll be stuck until I get lucky enough to get another one, but still!!!!! Yes, I'm HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Thanks for an event where us poor dialup people had an equal chance!!! I think the eggs are BEAUTIFUL!

To be fair, I don't find it that strange that people would ask "what happens next", even though I thought TJ's post was pretty clear about what happens (I mean, it flat out says you collect them, and the basket fills up with eggs, which is what happens, so even if people did not understand the post at first, seems it would make sense after they watched what happens).

 

But, given the history of the site, it makes sense that people would speculate if something else was going to happen (other than the fact that a brief reading of the thread would show that the question has already been asked/answered bunches of times).

 

So I don't really think speculating means people are necessarily complaining, just being curious. Especially since it is hard to see what there is to complain about, as many people have already pointed out the whole site is about collecting pictures. Guess what, we just got to collect some special pictures. Hooray!

 

Personally I find this a nice change, especially for people like me who wish they could freeze eggs. It's like I have my own personal super-pretty clogged AP to commemorate easter smile.gif

Amen, radon.

My sons and I had fun finding all the beautiful eggs this weekend. We didn't all get the whole list - it's hard to do that when you are all vying for the same two laptops and there are many other things going on at the same time - but between us all, we have at least two whole sets.

I agree that it will be nice to be able to keep eggs on our scroll forever. There are some of our regular, dragon-hatching eggs that are so pretty that it is almost sad when they start cracking. I've often wished that I could freeze an egg, just so that I could keep it on the scroll, placed just beneath the hatchie for that breed.

Now we have some, even prettier than the regular eggs, and it truly would be a shame for any of these lovelies to crack open. I'm not sure it would be possible to design dragons pretty enough to emerge out of them, and especially not 38 of them! The poor spriters! And after all the amazing work they've done so far this spring with all of the beautiful new releases.

Thank you TJ and spriters for these works of art you've given all of us. It was a really nice event, and your hard work paid off.

I wish the basket was somewhere else on the scroll. I like the eggs and all, but if my scroll looks eastery all year 'round, that might be annoying.

I heard that the basket would probably be moved toward the bottom of the scroll but I don't know if that's straight from TJ or just speculation.

-I wish there had been 42 or 36 eggs instead of 38, so I could have still collected all of them and my rows would have been all even. I'm OCD like that. rolleyes.gif

I believe Marionetta said that they will eventually move to somewhere else on the scroll.

Right now they are at the top to be viewed. tongue.gif

This was a really neat event. Neither my kids nor I managed to get all the eggs (we were out of town for the holiday) but we all got some. They are very beautiful and it was a clever idea. Two thumbs up!

My only two complaints:

-I wish there had been 42 or 36 eggs instead of 38, so I could have still collected all of them and my rows would have been all even. I'm OCD like that. rolleyes.gif

-While I like the swan egg, I kinda wish the swan part was gone and it was just the egg. Having 37 eggs all one size and that one big swan egg looks odd to me. Either that, or I wish there had been more variability in the sizes of the other eggs, so there wouldn't be one egg which sticks out like a sore thumb. tongue.gif

Or would you rather they moved around randomly, like the dragons on the wilderness page? cool.gif

If we get to keep the basket, is it going to stay at the top of the scroll? Or will it 'go on the scroll', as if it were a dragon?
