Hello again! It's been...awhile...since our last Community Update. So let's get right to it!




Forum Report Feature

If you’ve ever reported an account for spamming or abusive posts or behavior, thank you! Your diligence reporting these incidents has helped maintain a positive forum experience for both you and your fellow players.

When reporting inappropriate usernames to us, please take an additional moment to clarify in the comment field why you are reporting the name. Sometimes the violation is clear-cut, sometimes it is not, sometimes the username is fine and the report actually has nothing to do with the player’s account name at all.
Ahem.
weary-wee-baby-jake.png

On a final forum report feature note, using it to target someone (ex: organizing your friends or a group to report someone), “jump the queue” (ex: deliberately selecting a different category in order to get it seen faster), or in retaliation (ex: rapidly reporting multiple players after receiving a penalty yourself) is considered abuse of the system.

We understand it might be tempting but it's best to refrain from doing that. Making false reports or otherwise trying to abuse the system can lead to your account being penalized.




Welcome, new mods!

You may have already seen them moving about the forums, but please give a warm welcome to our two newest volunteer moderators, @Nazmiye and @Peixes!

Coming Soon: Frigidfin Expedition
logo_frigidfin.png

After the success of last autumn's Drakeharvest, we'll soon be launching our next food-themed microholiday: the Frigidfin Expedition! Where Drakeharvest focused on plant food, Frigidfin Expedition's main export will be seafood.

We learned a few things from the last microholiday, and we'll be making the following changes:

  • Many players communicated that they were not able to participate in Drakeharvest because it ran only during the week, so we'll be running the event so that it includes a weekend this time. Frigidfin Expedition will be active from Thursday, December 13th (06:00) to Monday, December 17th (06:00).
  • We received some feedback that while the extra plant food was nice, it was somewhat hard to "feel" the effects of the increased drops since food already dropped fairly frequently to begin with. For Frigidfin Expedition, all enemies across all venues will have a chance to drop some special microholiday-themed seafood items in addition to their normal loot pools. This should make it so that stocking up on seafood feels more meaningful/lucrative, no matter what enemies you're choosing to fight.

As with Drakeharvest, all experience gains in the Coliseum will be increased by 50% for the duration of the microholiday, so in addition to grabbing some extra seafood items, you can level up some dragons!

We'll also have a pair of brand new familiars to collect. Rather than spoil them now, however, you'll just have to wait and see!




Fan Art Fridays

For our social media communities, we've introduced Fan Art Friday on Twitter and Tumblr! Based on community participation and interest, we will be expanding to other platforms in the future!


How to Participate

Include the #FRFanArt tag when you post your art.


Why use the hashtag?

Using this hashtag also communicates to us that it is okay to share/retweet/or possibly spotlight your work! When we're getting ready for our next Community Update, you'll be contacted by a Flight Rising team member, usually as a reply to the art post we'd like to spotlight.

Alternatively, you can include your username somewhere in the post or fanart. Doing this means you won't have to keep an eye out for any replies or reblogs!

If your fanart makes it into a Community Update, we will credit you with your Flight Rising username and a direct link to the art piece itself.

While we may not be able to share all posted fan art, using #FRFanArt is also a way to show off your fan art to new people and fellow players when they browse the tag.


Why Social Media?

There are many of our players who don't visit the forums, just waiting to be engaged. In addition to FRFanArt on Twitter and Tumblr, we highly recommend checking out the many beautiful pieces of art made by our community on the Flight Rising Deviantart Group.

The theme changes every Monday, stickied in the Dragon Share forum, and the new theme is typically announced in our [b][url=http://www1.flightrising.com/]Site Status[/url][/b] box on the front page. [br] [b][size=4]Is it a contest? Are there prizes?[/size][/b] To put it simply, no. Theme Week is designed to be a low-pressure event for players to show off their dragons with other like-minded players. We do have a spotlight for each week, announced in the companion discussion thread for the current theme. Spotlights are random. As long as the shared dragons fit the theme and don't exceed that week's maximum number of dragons, a player is eligible for the spotlight! [b]Theme Weeks are meant to be lighthearted fun.[/b] They are not a part of our development cycle, with the sole exception of themes [i]complementing[/i] a release (such as [i][b][url=http://www1.flightrising.com/forums/drs/1980794]The Bogsneak Mutagen[/url][/b][/i]) and monthly elemental Festivals.

These events are characterized by a “hub” posted in the [b][url=http://www1.flightrising.com/forums/frd]Flight Rising Discussion forum[/url][/b]. Here players share and celebrate their Flight with their fellow players and provide a digest of links and mini-events happening around the site.

Today we’ll cover the 2018-2019 [b]Brightshine Jubilee[/b] through the [b]Rockbreaker's Ceremony[/b]!

Night of the Nocturne Theme Week 2017 Spotlight

During the 2017 Night of the Nocturne event, we ran a special theme week. This was a two-week theme based on a (non-canon!) lore short story and writing prompt.

Below are just some of the submissions from your fellow players. We enjoyed reading them and we hope you do, too!

What is "Theme Week?"

Dragon Share Theme Week is a weekly event in our Dragon Share forum. The theme changes every Monday, stickied in the Dragon Share forum, and the new theme is typically announced in our Site Status box on the front page.


Is it a contest? Are there prizes?

To put it simply, no. Theme Week is designed to be a low-pressure event for players to show off their dragons with other like-minded players. We do have a spotlight for each week, announced in the companion discussion thread for the current theme. Spotlights are random. As long as the shared dragons fit the theme and don't exceed that week's maximum number of dragons, a player is eligible for the spotlight!

Theme Weeks are meant to be lighthearted fun. They are not a part of our development cycle, with the sole exception of themes complementing a release (such as The Bogsneak Mutagen) and monthly elemental Festivals.


But half my Lair fits the theme!

Choose wisely. Besides, you never know when a particular theme will roll back around!






Flight Festival Recap 2018 - 2019

For those new to Flight Rising, back when we first opened the community created the tradition of celebrating a Flight’s holiday by putting on a site-wide organized event. These events are characterized by a “hub” posted in the Flight Rising Discussion forum. Here players share and celebrate their Flight with their fellow players and provide a digest of links and mini-events happening around the site.

Our July 2018 Community Update covered the 2017-2018 Crystalline Gala through Greenskeeper Gathering. Today we’ll cover the 2018-2019 Brightshine Jubilee through the Rockbreaker's Ceremony! Given the depth and breadth of the events, it’s not always possible to recap every mini-event held. Please take the time to check out each hub to see everything Light, Lightning, Fire, Arcane, Plague, and Earth had to offer their fellow players this year!

  • [TCC] Mayhem at the Market (CYOA)

    You arrived to join the festivities just before the sun set, draping the sprawling market in long shadows that never seemed to stay in the same place between one glance and the next. You didn’t know what expect out of the Shifting Emporium, maybe find a good deal on some magical items. Well, you certainly found a magical item, but this very far from a good deal.

  • [TCC] Two-Strike Treasures

    Grab a leyline map of dubious authenticity, rent a robot to help you dig where the flight's magic is said to be at its strongest, and head out in search of secret treasures! Rumor has it the luckiest dragons might even see Lightning strike twice in the same spot...

  • [TCC] Shapeshifters

    The Emporium isn't the only thing that's shifting...
    These dragons are going to shapeshift into new forms. Come suggest what those forms should be, and maybe one of them will come home with you!

  • THE HISTORIAN'S COLLECTION - A WRITING CONTEST

    As you wander through the various stalls and booths of the local Flameforger's Festival Celebrations you come across a stall packed to the brim with books and papers, a small sign attached to the front table states, 'Tell us your stories'. The snapper manning the desk smiles and welcomes you to the Historical Collections Booth. There may even be a reward in it for you if you manage a creative enough tale.

  • ASHFALL INVESTIGATION

    Flameforgers is in full swing and everyone is excited! The exploration of the new islands has been opened up to all Flights and the Ashfall Wastes are abuzz with activity and celebration. But from the heart of one of the islands, something truly evil has awakened. Clans are disappearing, though much is being done to maintain appearances and keep the masses calm. Aiva has set out a stall to gather more information while everyone is out enjoying themselves, and she needs your help. (This event opens Sunday the 26th of August and runs for the week of Flameforger's.)

  • TORCH'S TRAILBLAZERS

    In Ashfall is an explorers' guild known as the Trail Blazers. Scouts travel dutifully across the eleven realms and beyond, to teach the ancient skills of survival that allow them to thrive harmoniously with the world. Now that their gods have blessed the realms with wondrous new lands and bounties, they've made it their quest to aid the many clans of Sornieth in uncovering the undiscovered!
