also there is neondragonart.com (don't go to the site nowadays it is a defunct site. but you can still see it on the wayback machine) it was the starting site for flight rising.

- Flight symbol banners used to be different
- Several pastel colors used to be different, and changed with the Color Wheel expansion, except for Iri + Shim
- Trading post used to have its art front and center, rather than buttons, and you clicked on the art.
- Courier dragons used to message your inbox with each AH sale or expiration
- "Breaking" Roundsey's counter
- Strange banned names
- Spiral hatchlings have their tails going the wrong way
- Guardian males step on their tails
- Very, very early on, Beastclans were "Beastmen"
- Other cultural-sensitivity name changes

@ravenleap There used to be a glitch where the coli screen would "spin" out of its box and you'd have to restart because of it!

Oh yeah I know about the glitched Imp scroll. It was applied to a triple Gold G1, and then shortly after the person's account got banned. That little Imp is still sitting in there lol. I'd link him but I don't know if that would count as witchhunting or not.

Does Skydancers being a reward design for a KS backer count? If so then yeah back when the original KS for Flight Rising was up, the highest tier (something like $1,000 USD) came with the ability to work with the devs to create a new dragon breed completely to your customization. Essentially commissioning a new breed. Skydancers were what came from that!

Then, some of Aequorin's old art books have old art of FR breeds in 'em, which is fun.

I haven't heard too many details on it, but there was some massive event back in 2018-2019 where a tooooon of Plague and Fire accounts got mass-banned out of nowhere. Proooobably a controversial thing to bring up here, since the whole thing is shrouded in all kinds of suspicious junk and nobody really knows what happened, but I thought I'd bring it up.

And then yeah I know of quite a bit of way more personal drama that would absolutely not be ok to be posted here lol

Edit: wait does the old Facebook like system count? Dragons have always been "like-able", you just had to do it through a little Facebook like system. Not a ton of people really knew about it, but it was very much there before the profile revamp.

Also, do old gene errors count? Like Mist Seraph on Ridgeback M pose being Like That(tm) (genuinely hope they never fix it because I find it so funny)

[quote name="Hippotang" date="2024-01-14 20:58:10" ] I feel like some of the things that could go on an FR iceberg would not be okay to discuss in the forums lmao [/quote] Correct. :) I know this is all in good fun but I'd like to drop a reminder in here to avoid discussing specific players or specific players' dragons, even if you don't use their names or link to their profiles. This is considered a call-out. As well, I recommend letting off-site drama stay off-site, and staying away from contentious topics, to avoid spawning additional discourse.
