Me neither. .. I mean there are civil suggestion for a gender neutral scroll for a persons own dragon. . But to demand that the game remove all genders on all dragons? That's just silly.

I love the idea of a pose change scroll, or even gender change/removal if certain restrictions are made so as to avoid breaking the game (like, only usable on dragons that have never been bred so as not to break lineages), but outright demanding things of FR staff to cater to a certain group of people and then getting up in arms about it when it isn't being implemented (in a timely manner, don't think FR said it'd never happen) is a bit ridiculous.
This latest thread cracks me up. I can understand the joke is distasteful, but if we're discussing comedy, it's usually a thing created to satirize the subject matter. In this case, I absolutely see it as making fun of the phrase in question and people who would use it in any seriousness, not making fun of people who've had breast surgery. Plus, yanno, deer antlers are also called "racks" and there actually is a shady practice of making fake ones and passing them off as real. So double win on the comedic commentary there.


Anyway, my rant I came here for! I'm starting to lose drive to save up for my last sprite. It's taken me 3 months to save up what gems I have, and I'm only somewhere between 1/4 and 1/3 of the way there. I've already sold off my valuable items I don't have use for, save some old festival accents that don't sell very quick anyway, so my only real source of income is grinding the coli and hoping I get good drops that I can sell and hoping there are players out there that will trade my treasure for their gems. And grinding coli is becoming a chore, to the point that not even player challenges are keeping my interest anymore. The game's getting stale with my goal seemingly so far out of reach, and I can't spend towards other goals because I know it's just taking away from this one.

I wonder what these people who feel the need to block people and avoid every little contact with them do with people in real life. I feel there is an increasing lack of maturity in people anymore that they are either incapable or unwilling to learn how to deal with things that they don't like. Yes I have blocked a few people but only so I don't have to see their posts if I don't want to. I don't give a rat's ass if they feel some dumb need to snoop on me.

whyyy do I gotta love wildclaws so much :lol: I can never find actual wildclaws I like, but I very very frequently find other dragons that look stellar as WCs. I don't have the gems for Stained, let alone all these future WCs!

When someone bids during the last hour of an auction with a 12hr snipe guard. Ugh.

Agreed. .but there are just too many threads complaining that I think they going to win. .And we again get a little bland skins and accents :/

This thread seam to be popular... and step one foot in the ror skin discussion thread and ppl have their pitchforks out for the artists :/ :

They wont be accepted no matter what, even without the complaining.
Staff doesnt want any 'suffering' dragons.
I had a huge thread about it for a few years now.

Siggy under construction!

So starving is ok, but "suffering" isn't?

I dont like seeing suffering animals in real life.. but this is a game.. and suffering is such a broad term..

In nature there is a thing called Cutaneous Fibromas. Whilst it look like the deer is hurting is it not. (Picture here : https://i.imgur.com/mQRqa8g.jpg) There are also several animals with see -through skin so you can see organs and even brain - but its not hurting.. There are LOTS of way to get scary/plague looking dragons but it is still not allowed as fr sees it as suffering.. any blood is bad apaprently.. I dont know.. I rather have a small cut in my finger than green ooze coming from a wound... the rules are simply silly :/ I almost know which ones wont win and we get some of the blend ones.. which are also nicely done but just boring :/

not so much a rant as a whine post. I decided for some stupid reason to try accents for the festival. One is still a wip but there have been zero comments good or bad. probably just wasting my time. uggggggg
