TOPIC | Must Name Before Exalting
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 ... 19 20
I think that it would be really handy to have a feature where you have to name a dragon before you exalt it. I say this because I hate seeing my hatchlings exalted by other players en masse without even being named, so my dragon's children just have a ton of "Unnamed" kids in a row (it tends to make me think that i still have them in my lair and am trying to sell them for some reason, also it just looks ugly)

Like maybe do the same thing for when you try to exalt a dragon wearing apparel/that has a familiar etc

I know it seems redundant, but i feel that not only would it ease my mind (Lol) but that it would also like, help to solve the "I Feel Like I Desperately Need To Collapse My Dragon's Offspring List" problem....... because i know the only reason i would really want to collapse my dragons offspring list is because people give their hatchlings keysmash names/no names at all and exalt them.

thats my idea thanks for reading

You're allowed to name your dragons before selling them and once they're not in your lair, they are no longer yours. You had an opportunity to make sure they weren't exalted unnamed and you did not take it. It's your responsibility, not the buyers

No support. My biggest issue with suggestions that prevent unnamed dragon thing is that once a player sells a dragon, they have no say on what the purchaser does with the dragon. If a seller does not like unnamed dragons on their dragons' offspring list, they should name the hatchlings before they sell them and not expect the purchaser to do so or suggest the game be changed to force names upon dragons. Once a dragon is sold the seller has no say on what is done with that dragon; if unnamed dragons bother them, it is their responsibility to name the dragons before selling them. There have been several polls that have shown that most players aren't bothered by a pre-named dragon

Players exalt dragons unnamed for a variety of reasons.
--To differentiate exalted dragons from existing dragons on an offspring list. (IE they exalt their hatchlings unnamed; if they sell they generally get a name so its easy to tell at a glance who it is worth checking up on to see what that dragon has been up to)
--Some exalters prefer to exalt unnamed to avoid 'potentially harassing names' (IE the Mulch mess)
--Some exalters don't care if the dragon is named or not but don't want dragons automatically named when they exalt because it will slow them down (the system will have to update the name field and mark the dragon as exalted) when compared to pre-named dragons.
----If unnamed dragons were given a default name upon exalting (rather than a randomized name), it still wouldn't solve the issue for many of the players who have an issue with unnamed dragons (which generally is its 'ugly' or complaing about having multiple of the same name on the list); these players would likely feel the same about a 'default' name.
--Some players exalt dragons for story reasons:
----Unnamed hatchlings may have been ones that died as a hatchling
----Unnamed dragons may not have earned a name
----Unnamed dragons essentially do not exist in their story/head canon for certain pairs perhaps because they are trying to breed certain offspring and any that are not to the right characteristics are exalted unnamed
----Unnamed can mean something completely different from Nameless. Unnamed suggests the dragon never got or earned a name while Nameless suggests they do not deserve a name/lost their name for some reason.

Suggestions like this essentially state that the breeder is more important than the buyer (since the argument tends to be that the unnnamed exalted offspring appear on the parents' page) which is incorrect since when you buy a dragon; you buy all rights to that dragon including the name or lack there of. The breeder seller has already been compensated for the dragon as they got the sales price they asked for. The exalter may have reasons for exalting unnamed (for example the dragon they exalted unnamed may have been used for a breeding project where they wanted unnamed parents or the dragon exalted unnamed may be referenced in their active clan members' profiles) and it is their right to be able to leave the dragon they exalted unnamed because it is their dragon.

Dragons that are exalted are still tied to the account that exalted them (if you move flights all the dragons you exalted move with you) thus technically the owner of the dragon is the player who exalted them since they are still tied to that account.

The admins are working on a way to collapse exalted offspring so that they do not have to be visible if a player doesn't want to see them

No. If you fear that your low-priced hatchlings might end up as exalt fodder, name them first, then auction them.

Just name them. Polls have shown the majority of users don't care if they're named anyway.

It depends, do you want to get treasure for the dragon, or do you want to have a dragon?

If you want to get treasure, you can sell a dragon, but always keep in mind the buyer can do as they wish with the dragon, as long as it's within terms and conditions.

If you want to have control over the dragon, you can keep the dragon.


But, you can't have both the money and the power to decide what happens with the dragon. You can't have your cake and eat it too

No Support, as there are some situations in story where I want to exalt my dragons unnamed.
