Will the upside down skydancer ever return?

He has found his upside down way into another dimension, but surely we can bring him back! We stopped using him because the typography on his image is old, pre-front-page-face-lift. We will see about updating his graphic so that he can return to our dimension and temporarily grace our live updates while they are implemented.


Quote:
With Joxar's Spare Inventory, how often will the items be switched? Will it be every several months, or will it be the same items for the rest of the year?

We will shuffle the most recent festival items into the past-festival-items pool periodically, as well as add new color variant items to the color-variant and token-purchasable pools. This will typically happen every three to four festivals.

It seems to me that alerts older than one month are automatically deleted. Is this true? Personally, I like to ping myself to certain threads that get buried a lot so that I can always find them, but lately I've been noticing that those pings are gone after a month. Do they simply disappear? I know I'm not deleting them.

Yes, to help with site performance, old pings are purged. If you'd like to keep track of a thread, click the star button at the top of it. That will subscribe you to the thread and you will receive notifications when a thread is updated.

What does Swipp do with all the items you give him? Surely, a few canopic jars and skulls are not the most useful of things to have laying around...

Everything's got a value! For all you know, Swipp could be selling them on some sort of Beastclan black market or feeding Crim's penchant for collecting items. But we're not accusing him of anything...


Quote:
Are y'all ever going to do an event like the 'RPG' things in the dragon share again? (Like the one where we had a team of five dragons who each represented different things) or like the NotN event where we were sharing what dragon/familiar etc would be a mimic and who was investigating?

Any plans to do any more of those via dragon share weeks, or any similar or bigger events?

We had fun with those, too! There will be more clan/lore focused theme weeks in the future.


Quote:
unless theres a big list of mods on a list where i can look at.

There is! You can find it on our Credits page.

Sometimes when I click an alert for a forum, it brings me to the 404 handler page. I can't access the page until I either close the tab, or use the search. I don't think it's supposed to do this...

If you follow a ping to a thread and you get a 404 error, it means the thread has either been deleted by the original poster, or moved/removed by a volunteer moderator or a member of the Flight Rising team.

I see that the blooming is now out and a very wonderful update might I add. I love everything you have release recently as well. But this edit is to ask what the next hint words are and I still have need for the hint words to help me calm the raging groups of speculators that will want to know and ask. So I ask what are the new words to be obsessed about?

Sure thing!
  • Gladiator
  • Druid
  • Cerberus
  • Conch

I'm just wondering if the site will ever get any new activities on the site. I know you don't give timelines but there are still very few things to do.

There are several features in the pipeline for Flight Rising. We're in this for the long haul. Some are new, some are overhauls.

We are trying to balance renovations and improvements to existing features with the addition of new ones. We've been slowly re-coding our entire site. The best way to track this is via URL. If a url has www1 in it, the code has been refactored. In many cases, we have also added requested features when we refresh features and pages, such as with Crossroads and the Auction House.

We're closing in on a completely re-coded site, including but not limited to: the Coliseum, lairs, dragon profiles, the Bestiary, the Hoard, and completely redesigning/relaunching the achievement system. Your suggestions and feedback on these features are always very helpful!


Quote:
Why does the scrying workshop have issues with deities?

This is due to their unique design. They use static images and the Scrying Workshop isn't coded for dragons that can't have different colors and genes applied.


Quote:
If coatls are native to the ashfall waste, why is their diet exclusively seafood? Wouldn't fish be kinda hard to come by in a volcanic region?

The Ashfall Waste borders bodies of water on two sides. Coatl lairs dot the border (much to the dismay of the Tidelord) almost leading one to wonder if the Flamecaller intended her children to harry his territory above others...


Quote:
Would the staff inform us if a feature or item was scrapped?

Yes.


Quote:
How do y'all choose which questions to answer? Or is there no process and it's mostly a random thing (with reason mixed in there somewhere)?

If a question is a suggestion (or veiled suggestion), seeking unannounced timelines, or looking for a way around our rules, we will not answer it. We have a forum for suggestions, we do not provide hard timelines until we know exactly when something will be released, and our rules are our rules. From there, we look at what we can or are comfortable with answering at the time of review.

A pretty silly queston about the bird skull apparell headepieces. The size of the ones on Faes isn't odd at all; of course there would be birds that size. What worries me is the ones on Guardians and Imprials. WHAT DID THEY HAVE TO KILL TO GET A BIRD SKULL THAT SIZE!!!!?

As we are nearing the holiday season, I must know: does Sornieth have a dragon Santa?

Do you have stats on the ratio of items sold to Crim vs. given away by Pinkerton? What's the real status of the hoarding war?
