Wasn't there another thing like this we did two or three years ago?

Yeah. Those were Elements Graphics eggs, which were somewhat similar. This seems to be a much more complex/interactive/involved system.

I remember those!

I had a few of them on a dfifferent forum.

But basically, they were just mystery pictures. You picked an Egg (or more) and waited, and after a while, all sorts of wierd stuff would hatch out of them.

Now with these Dragons, you need to take some measure of care for your Eggs and Hatchlings, or else they will perish.


In a way, you could say that the EG eggs were the digital equivalent of Kinder Surprize Eggs, whereas these Dragons are like ultra-low-maintenance Tamagotchis

Crap, my eggs are approaching 10 views for every unique.
That's a perfectly fine ratio...

There is no "too much" as far as that figure is concerned... views being higher than unique views is normal, unique views being higher than clicks is normal.

If you just post the link instead of the image, then your clicks can climb higher than your unique views, and then you do have a problem.

The other problem is getting too many views in a short amount of time... but none of Tenshi's have soft-shell, so they're all fine.

Then, what is this all about:
Dragon Cave Forum FAQ wrote:
Q: Why is my egg or hatchling sick?
A: Egg soft shell and hatchling sickness is caused by abnormal conditions in the egg. There are three causes of disease:
  • Having too many views compared to unique views. If your egg or hatchling has over 10 times more views than unique views, then it will become sick.
  • Having more clicks than unique views
  • Getting too many views/unique views/clicks in a short period of time.

Question

*eyebrow raise*
Evidently you're right. We've had ludicrous ratios before and never lost an egg, though... did have a soft shell scare, but it got better.
Apparently we now know why.

I think the problem is that I don't have any other forums than Earthsong. So, the 40 unique views or so I've had are...well, that's all I'm going to get I think. Unless I can figure out a way to get more uniques, this game is going to be difficult for me. O_o

I did just now, in fact. I'm excited to see this one hatch, as I saw the description for it and was very curious. You'll have to make sure that one hatches, definitely! Very Happy

Hey, look! My first two have grown up!!!

Hmm... I'm gonna take those two out of my Sig now. Should they still remain in the first post, then?

Right now, I'm inclined to say yes, but if we do that with all grown Dragons, the Post will get rather full after a while...

We can do it that way for now, and trim it later if we want/have to.

Britland! Your dragon is so close! And more dragons are hatching! Oh, so exciting! Smile
