Anyone else notice missing friends? I’m afraid to gift tonight because I can’t gift (right now) 3 people on my list. Thoughts?

Look under the Social tab in DV to see if the Facebook and Game Center buttons are blue and say "log out". If Facebook button is red and says "log in", tap it to reconnect to Facebook. If Game Center button says "log in" : open iPad settings, tap General, scroll down and tap Game Center, tap Sign In, enter Apple ID and password. Your friends should be showing now. If not, close apps and restart your iPad.

Per a player comment on Facebook, BFS is working on a fix to allow more than one Frosty Filigree decoration. For now, I'm leaving mine in gifts to see what they do. The other option is to sell the one in your park and then collect the one from your gifts.

I’ve signed in/out of Apple ID, updated the ipad, disconnected/reconnected through FB and GC, still no luck. I’m missing a BUNCH of friends in my friends list...GPK included! Any other suggestions?

Time to email BFS from inside your game. Wish I could be of more help. They will more than likely tell you to uninstall DV and reinstall. Oh, and just in case it "might" help, try clearing browser history to free up some memory. If you have a lot of gifts or twins ,it may help to clear those out. If you uninstall DV, restart before installing.

In the email let them know what all you've tried.

Hi DG and all. I am having the same problems as you on missing friends. I just noticed yesterday. I have 2 completely separate accounts on 2 devices, and now both are missing friends, and a lot of them are people I trade gifts with grrr. It is so irritating to finally get the Goodie extra food thingy and not be able to send the extra gifts out to some who are treating me. Hmmm wonder if it has anything to do with not updating to iOS 11. My experience has been that upgrading breaks things instead of fixes things. Ok rant over.

Hey GPK...dilly, dilly. Congrats on the Nimbus! He is a strange one however. That Rift will certainly drive me over the edge one day. I’m up to $11,000 to clear clouds now. On top of everything else it’s so ugly over there! Oh well.

I loved the Xmas event and all the new dragons. They were all very creative. Still wish we could of bought the Xmas tree that was on the event island for my park.

Happy Dragons

I'm unable to gift or coop breed with more than half of my friends.
Seems I am losing access more and more of them each day !!
Soooo glad it isn't just me
But it's frustrating as heck not to be able to reciprocate gem gifts nor be able to reach out to people to tell them what is happening

Congrats KL, GPK and Bru on all your DV accomplishments!! I’m so excited for you all!

GPK now you can change your sign off to member of the DVFD again! What have you been working on lately? And stupid football question, but why do they have so many different leagues (not sure if that’s the right word) Big10 etc...

Martini Jeanie it’s so good to have you posting on here! You’ve been playing DV awhile now haven’t you?

DRM I will happily send snow, ice and a little of this arctic cold to help with your wasps, etc! I love snow and cold but this kind of cold I’m not used to! There’s some crazy weather going on all over the US lately. How are things in your game?

DG how cold does it usually get in NE? I think next week we’ll have temps back in the 30’s and 40’s - heat wave compared to now! What stations are you finding the shows your watching on? I’ve heard of Breaking Bad but never got a chance to watch it yet but haven’t heard of the others. I’m not a big tv watcher but I do like a good series. Have you been watching The Crown? It recently released season 2 on Netflix and I did binge watch that. Any other Downton type of shows? My friend I was watching the series with had to stop because she’s a single mom and just didn’t have the time right now. She owns a horse so any spare time is devoted to that. Game wise I’ve been experiencing the same loss of friends :-/ It’s got to be a glitch on there end right? Of course if it were then I guess everyone’s game would be doing it. I’ve been gifting the few people who are still showing up but I can’t gift any of you-KL maybe still you, I can’t remember if I gifted before the thing happened.

I don’t know about you guys but time is just flying by these last few months and it feels like as soon as one project is done there are five other projects or crisises behind it, lol. That’s just life though and I am thankful for these breaks to catch up with you all!

As for me it’s been busy; our dryer broke and we have a home warranty but between them ordering parts and it not fixing the problem we went a month without a dryer; hello laundry mat and then turns out ours wasn’t fixable so we took cash in lieu of the dryer they wanted to send us and picked out our own. Threw the new one in the back of our SUV and smash! Went sliding and shattered the back window! Glad it was my husband driving and not me!. Got that replaced and found out our Jeeps tires although perfect tread on the outside were rotted on the inside (didn’t even know that was possible!) so $700 and four tires later that’s fixed. Our dishwasher bit the dust so one is coming next week, but we don’t have a normal kitchen (think walk in closet) so a no frills ‘under the sink’ dishwasher is $1000. Our stove is on its last leg so that will need replaced quickly too! Crazy! The blessing to all of this is that my husband’s contract at work passed and they got some retro pay and it has covered all these little problems! We wish we could have put it towards a real vacation but I’m so thankful that it was here at this point and time, given they’ve been waiting six years!

So going to run, I’m purging our bedroom closeet and prepping to paint our bedroom and my husband is installing a new vanity in the bathroom later today after he plays with the new Instant Pot we just got! Oh and finally got a shed after not having one the last few years but someone else gets to put that big boy together!

FP - It started out as a geographical thing eg Ohio, Indiana etc. Now the geographic regions have really grown. Thanks to Big $$$ TV contracts & air travel, teams like West Virginia now compete against teams like Texas & Oklahoma, Boston College against Miami...Since they can only play x number of games per year, the regional rivalry teams play against each other every year in conferences eg BIG10, SEC, ACC, PAC12, Mountain West, with the best of those playing in bowl games. Now, they have the (supposedly) best 4 teams in a playoff. Basketball is totally different because the teams play 20+ games per season.

Sorry to hear about all your stuff going on the fritz at once but once you get it all fixed you’ll be good for another 20 years. Practicing Pachebel’s Canon in D...it’s pretty.

DG - so, you can neither get nor receive Gems from me? Yuk! Hope they can figure that out. You haven’t disappeared from my friends...Don’t think it’s an iOS 11 problem. I and another friend are both on it and we’re not on FB and we’re working fine.

It would seem that the wizards at BF are having problems taking care of DV. That is really upsetting! I have not had the problems that you all have had with the friends thing and I sure don’t want to. But it sure is weird that they can’t handle theses little problems. A lot of these problems have occurred ever since BF changed hands, and let’s not get started on the RIFT thing right?

FP.....yes I have been playing DV since 2010 when I was going to the chemo lab everyday. My granddaughter started me on it. She said it would keep me busy while I sat there. She was right. I am very attached to it and would sure hate to see something happen to it. I also play it’s counterpart DVW, but it has its problems and I don’t enjoy it as much as DV. The one thing that is cool about that game is you can communicate with your friends within the game.

Well Happy Dragons!

Everyone have a successful shopping day?
I wasn't able to get all the new ones, even in my main parks. My fault tho since I didn't play as often as in previous events. I did, however, complete the ornamental collection in all 7 parks except for Starshine, and the snowflake dragons in most. I also have at least one Party dragon in each park with a goal of 2 per park. The baby has different dance moves and both are fun to watch.
We had a decent cold spell going on, 20s during the day and teens at night. Bye bye bugs! Warming back today to 40s and tomorrow 60 something.

Stay warm y'all! :-)

GPK, wanted to let you know that you are one of my missing friends out of at least 9 that I was trading with. Wanted to let you know so you could send the goodies on to someone who can return to you. I still have DG, Dream and Flowerpot. According to another site it appears that if you had more than 100 GC friends, either apple or BFS wiped out the amount over 100. And it looks like random people were taken off; seems they could have at least picked names who were inactive. Aw well, so is life. Lots have been emailing but doesn't sound like BFS plans to do anything about it. I noticed today that the Fancy Lamps and the smaller lamps are not lit up. Don't know if that is a glitch or intentional, maybe to help with data usage. That really irks me too. I don't have much decorating skill but what I did have included the lights!

FP - Are you still playing? Do you still want me to send you stuff?

You can stop for now as I can’t reciprocate:-( I think the only person in the whole group that I can still gift is KL. And like a few others, more and more of my friends disappear daily. I thought perhaps once I wrote on the forum that I was gong to take a break after the event that people deleted me but then to find out others are having the same issue too, well I wonder what’s gonng on?! Think I’ll be taking a break until the next event or they work this bug out.

Oh and thanks for the football explanation, it helped a lot!

What, if anything, have you heard from BFS, regarding losing your friends?

I just saw an angry red face, here on the forum and it said “3 people have ‘unfriended’ you.” I cant find it now but that is strange...

Hey all :). I've got my gem / food trading friends back that I was missing! GPK got you and just sent food and gems. Found this fix on another site and surprisingly it worked for me. It was very painful, took a long time to do, and I was lucky. If you have an older apple device running iOS lower than 10 (think I had 9.3.3) you might be in luck. Still had my first iPad, opened Game Center from the icon, went to Friends and started deleting people who were no longer playing, or that I didn't know. I had over 160 GC friends to start with, and weeded them down to 90. Voila! All my missing friends that I had been trading with are back. I then logged in to my other GC account and fixed that one. Apple has cut us back to 100 friends max. Hope they will leave it alone now !

Hmm - I will have to try that; as of playing tonight I still have no GC friends. GPK and MOST of you, I am so sorry I cannot gift back! I will try ARTs fix and try from there. I do have the iOS 11.something.

FP - I will have to shoot you an e-mail - I can’t believe all that stuff happened to you! Dryer, windows, tires. OMD woman! You poor thing!

I’m going to try ARTs fix now and see if I can get back on my gifting schedule! Although if BFS has cut us down to 100, how is it they’re picking and choosing FB over GC??? So Many Questions.... I don’t have an older device though - this fix may not work and then I’ll be really P.O.’d.

So, DG, you don't still have an old iPhone or iPad that might run version nine? How about some good friends that might have old devices? You could sign in on their device for your Game Center name I'd.. if you don't have any one that can help, I can try to help om my old iPad. Let km know if you are interested. I am ready for this event to be over with! Doing lots and lots of breaking and not doing so well om the rare rifts. Hope they will give us some down down for a while. I don't like being so stressed trying to breed hundreds of dragons over and over and not have much to show it.

Hello my dear fellow Valers
I know it’s been a very long time since I’ve been on, a year ago December I think. Live has been very hectic and I barely have time to play once a day. We have been in a fight with the landowner of our business location and all this past year have been waiting for an eviction notice every month. He wants an outrageous amount of up front money to renew our lease and hubby and I have been working every day, 3 to 11 pm since a week before Xmas 2016, not a single day off ugh. Trying to save as much as we can. Well, it finally came, he found some idiot to purchase the lease and we are out at the end of the month, next week. Well, at least I will be able to play properly. Lol.
I hope everyone is healthy and happy! I have popped in from time to time, to check on game stuff. Last week, I also lost over half of my friends from the game. GPK, DG, FP, all of you all, gone. I emailed support, but no help. Yesterday I came on to let you know I can’t return gifts and realized it wasn’t just me. OMD. What has happened!!
Thanks to ART, I followed your idea and dig out my old i4, powered that a baby up and started unfriending. I whittled my friends list from 317 to 99. Then I deleted DV, signed out of GC and powered down my iPad. Turned GC back on, downloaded DV again and whalla! I got you all back!! You have no idea how depressed I was and how thrilled I am to get you all back. : )
I should be having free time again soon, and would love to come back to the group.
Take care all and stay warm.
Lynn

Although weirdly I was able to gift DG yesterday but still not the others. Anyway glad to have you back!

Hi all
I know i don't post often these days, but do try and read the posts most weeks.
i've also been effected by the losing friends problems. mamanged to find an old device at the weekend and deleted non playing Gc friends. Took ages!! and now i read that they fixed it!!!

Sorry to waffle
I actually decided to post as i've only just realised that you can feed the RIFT dragons with etherium.
Using a X2 boost stored, I managed to level up very quickly.
7,500 etherium to take a RIFt from 18-19 was a WHOLE LEVEL

GC:car0lyn43 (that's a zero among letters)

We can now Level Up to 125 but before you start collecting those Experience Points, visit the Market and buy x number of days with DOUBLE Experience Points with Gems. Also, Island 21 price is only 8 Billion D$! Island 22 available for 9 Billion D$ once you reach Level 105.

Edit: After buying the Double Experience Points, I ‘feed’ up enough Dragons to Level 20 to get to Level 125. Party Hats now pay D$156,000+ and with each Level, you get another Habitat. It only took about 350 million Treats to feed up enough Dragons to get me to Level 125. I figured we were due for a Level increse but not 25...Glad I stocked up on Treats.

I was told it was an apple problem and they were limiting friends to a max of 100. Number offFacebook friends don't matter. Oh well I' m sure glad to have you all back.

Woo-hoo! Lynn you’re back! How awesome! Sorry about your woes, I will echo ART and wish you better luck.

Well, my friends are back...today when I logged in (even though I was signed in to both FB and GC) there was a TOTAL of 5 friends showing. Now it seems all is back to normal and (thankfully!!!!) my gifting list is up and running again! The only response I got from BFS is “it sounds like a GC issue, but we will continue to work on it”. I don’t know if they did or not, I’m just glad everyone is back.

So, any luck with the new islands? I was able to get the first one, just leveled up tonight to get the second ‘reduced rate’ island, but I won’t be able to collect that much in the next 4 days. I only have about $2B and that just won’t do! So, I will be happy with my extra island...I turned the last one into another Seasonal (I think I picked that up from GPK!) and may do an Apoc island to free up some space on the Dark and FIre islands to add more habitats on those two. I do have about 5 Apoc-habitat dragons in hibernation, just need to get the habitats.

Our ‘blizzard’ on Monday wasn’t as bad as they thought it would be - really the winds were crazy but total accumulation was only about 5-6 inches (but hard to tell with the winds). The beauty on Tuesday morning were the 4- and 5-foot drifts up against our fir trees...really beautiful.

I did manage to breed for the Woolen pedestal today so now I have all the latest event peds as well. I didn’t think I had a Krampus ped (silly me, didn’t check the Dragonarium) and bred one of those as well. That’s OK - I’ll sell the spare and get the XP points. :)

Off with me as it’s 1 a.m, but wanted to let you know I’m back up and gifting! Dilly Dilly to you all and congrats on all your new dragons!

It’s amazing how all of you who lost friends recently have gotten them back and with little or no (mostly no) help from BFS...to just eliminate friends like that with no warning and then blame it on Game Center...makes me really appreciate them (sarcasm intended).

Welcome back everyone!

Well add me to the list of ‘friends back’! I’m glad everyone has their friends back but I wonder if this was a DV game problem only? I don’t have any other games with a friends list so has anyone else had issues with any other game that has a friends list? Are any of you on other forums where you’re reading about this being a widespread issue? I hope
we all weren’t hacked!

ART thank you for your offer though to help me out too. Much appreciated!

Carolyn sorry to hear you were among those who had to do so much to get it sorted out. That is dedication on all your parts!

DG thank you for your sympathies with our breakdowns and mishaps. Hoping that is the end of it all but either way I’d love an email from you! Just a thought how close are you to getting your next wish in order to get the next island?

GPK Well my break from DV may be short lived because they’ve sucked me back in with the three new islands. Do you think this was planned or a ‘gift’ for the possible friends issue?

DRM how are you? I don’t see a post from you in the last few days; is all okay?

Oops, sorry Deeg, just saw your email!

Hi all !
Thanks all for the welcome backs ! :D <3
It may still be awhile before I become regular. Landlord pushed the closing ( for the fourth time ugh) to the 15 th of feb. The new lessee is having delays getting licenses etc. We have a neighborhood corner store, been there for 24 years, and know all the people in the area. Seen the kids go from kindergarten to having kids of their own. It’s all about the location, so we won t be opening anywhere else. A forced early retirement. Thank god we have the house paid off.
Glad everyone is back up and gifting yay. Did you all have to delete friends also? I had emailed BF, mutlipe times, and Mike said they didn’t know how to fix it, the friends limit was placed by apple. While deleting, I accidentally unfriended 2 regular friends. (If you see this, sorry Turkey_leg and -coasters-)
I also bought the next Island, forgot the number, not the latest one, the previous now at 8 billion. Best news ever, clearing is FREE!!! Don’t know what I’m going to do with it yet, my whole park is in a shambles lol.
Well, have to make lunch and then off to work.

Where is everyone???

FP, GPK, DG....
What has happened to the forum??
I was looking around this morning and it’s like deserted around here. Proofs fairy list has all but been abandoned?!?! Has everyone moved on with their lives, sans DragonVale?
Or is it just the forum. Has things become difficult to manage. I know it must have been hard with the missing friends, but that was just a few weeks ago. No one has posted on other threads for months. Oh my.......

Sadly it is dying. I never posted much but have been a member for 5+ years. Owners changed the format and won’t update anything and the admins can only do so much as their hands are tied. The rift has also turned some people off along with other changes in the game. The active gang may be “meeting up” elsewhere. Unfortunate!

That so sad to hear.
Personally, I’ve been crazy busy/involved with work this past year, that I lost the time to come on here. Barely had time to play DV just once a day. Now I’ve gotten some free time coming up and wanted to reconnect with all the old pals.
I don’t know anyone else who plays DV, like in the family or friends, unless they are in the closet lol. So I like to have a connection with other player, pick their brains and brag once in a while. Hubby truly doesn’t get it. ;)

I’m going to look around for maybe a new place, lol, maybe we can be roomies lol.
I’ll let you know if I find anyplace, (other forum) fun and interesting.
Stay tuned ......
Lynn

Welcome back Lynn!
I'm still playing, sorta, trying for at least once a day. I've been sidetracked with other apps that are easy to put down if Mom needs something and I'm not completely lost when I can resume playing. Had a bad fibromyalgia flare up that's still bugging me but finally calming down. Plus, mom's caretaker was out a week with the flu. I missed a few days and am way behind on gems. Sorry!
The site is not as busy for a few reasons that started with the reformat. It made things really hard to read. The moderator left and not sure if/when she's coming back. As a result, nothing's being updated. I've been doing moderator duty the best I can. It's very hard to update the site from an iPad tho. I wish I had regular internet so I could update from my computer. Then, Apple went and gave up on Game Center. I'm sure that affected a lot of players who couldn't add friends, especially the Gem Circle. The Rift was a very disappointing addition that caused players to leave.

I don't post as much but I do check in to see what's going on and try to catch the spam posts or see if there's any way I can help someone.

You have been extremely helpful by stepping in and I know it is much appreciated! It’s a big commitment and you have a full plate so we have been lucky you stepped in when the mod left or this would have died long ago.

Oh Dreamn, you have taken so much personal precious time for the forum. Thanks so much for all your help! Even though I didn’t post, I still popped in when I had an issue, and most of the time, you already had the answer.
It’s a shame that the forum has fallen into such, I don’t know, disrepair? And no one is around anymore, it’s so depressing. I wanted to come back to all the fun and comradery

Now, maybe it’s time for a change, a move? Hmm. What do you all think? Another forum, one with all the things we used to have here and more. Well I Was googling and found the perfect place. Let’s load up our airships and travel over the mountain to this happy little vale where all the natives “practice aloha” and have this odd obsession with koalas lol. They are a lively quirky bunch. The avatars are huge and you can even use emojis in your posts. Come on guys, let’s move. We can stay at the Dragoninn while our thatched cottages are constructed. Even share a cottage together. Dg can work at the library and GPK can serenade us with his guitar. Jana can be the super fan she is meant to be. I’ll cook dinner, I make a great turkey pot pie and FP can do what ever she wants. Art also !! And Dreamn, you can just relax, sit back and let someone else moderate for a while.
And you know the sandbox we all use at dvbox.bin.sh, well that guy lives there also. They have all the latest info and help. Go and check them out and see for yourself.

dragonvale-tips.proboards.com/user/3893/personal

Well, that’s my pitch. I liked the old way things were and ever since the reformat, it truly hasn’t been the same. Problems are everywhere. It’s time to leave this ghost town for greener vales. Let me know what you all think.
Xoxo Lynn

All fixed ;-)
It was the link. You have to leave off the "ht-tp" or the "www". To go to the link users need only to copy it into their browser. Also, I've been a member there for quite a while and find it very helpful. I've even shared info from there to this forum to assist players.

I really don't want to give up on this forum. We've all been friends for years and are comfortable saying whatever's on our minds without fear of going off topic or worrying about who's "listening" or being told "wrong page for that". I believe no one is commenting because, well, no one else is. We're all waiting for each other to say something so we can respond. "You first" syndrome, lol.

LM - I will check it out...

All - After reaching my 1,000 Rose limit and collecting from friends, it gave me Gardinia’s message that I had reached my Personal ICEBERRY limit. But then, when I was collecting from the Rift islands, the Personal Limit message said ROSES. Very careless of the program maintenance crew and poor programming to begin with...there should be only 1 message alerting us that we have reached our limit and it could then be ‘called’ (executed) from anywhere in the program. This looks like imbedded, straight-line code. Very poor technique. Ya see, when you imbed the same program instructions in different parts of the body, then, when changes are required, like for an update, the programmer must remember every place where those instructions were inserted and change all of them. In this case, the programmer making the changes overlooked one. Sad...

GPK just a thought, could it be saying Roses because the game is still gathering roses to go towards the community goal after we reach our limit? Glad your friend list reappeared so fast!

Lynn and DRM you both have good reasons to go and stay! I know IPK mentioned a while back about using a different private chat site so she could reconnect with us. I like the idea a lot, so we could still talk about random things and DV like we’ve been doing for so long on here but also to join another forum like Lynn suggested to keep up on DV stuff! Best of both worlds?!

LynnMarie's picture

I’m still going to be coming here when ever I can, but I also made an acct on the other forum. We can all connect there also. There are, I don’t know what to call it, places with in the forum, we can start our own thread and talk about daily stuff, like here. It can be The DBG Pals (DragonVale Breeding guide) :D

Meanwhile, in the vale.
I’m so excited for this event!! I was so over all the Xmas stuff with the last event. Is seems like the season started in October here this year and it’s so hard to relate to the cold and snow when we are hardly ever under 60*
On the loading screen there are so many new dragon but only three popped up as prizes. This means we will have limited one. Ugh didn’t have enough last event and didn’t get the first limited, sleigh bell, before it expired. Couldn’t breed it either and ended up using my wish to get one. Now I’m out of a wish and won’t have another for months. Hopefully the dragons in the tree are a three part one. Like sprout. Then that will be only two extra to worry about.
Well, later guys. If you do pop over to the other forum, I’m Lynn Marie there also :)

I too am using the same name on the pro boards forum, Dreamn.
Lynn and FP : found you both at the pro boards DV community, added you both to my friends list there and am "following" you so I see your posts. :-)

Double roses this weekend, woohoo!

Took mom to get her hair done and decided it was a good day for pizza. Called it in from the salon, stopped at a car wash on the way home, set the table, poured the drinks and right on cue, pizza! Perfect timing :D Now I'm full of pizza and cinnamon bread and struggling to stay awake. Zzzzzz

Edit: Watch for Gardenia to visit your park twice per day.

DRMN - I figured you would probably be the only one who would appreciate my ‘semi-techie’ post (IPK too maybe)...certainly a violation of the tenets of ‘structured programming’ but as time moves on and apps (programs) get modified over the years, this sort of thing happens.

All - Sorry to burden you with my geekie observation :-( but I found another reference to ICEBERRIES and the AMPHITHEATRE instead of Roses and the Rose Ring when I was informed that a friend of mine had rewarded me for helping out with the Challenge.

LM - I looked at that sight. It looks like a better one but if I join it, I will still hang around here, just to be with the ‘gang’ members who stay.

The other forum is very much alive and I know you all would love it! Like Lynn, I signed up too and it would be great to have our own thread on there like Lynn suggested! Its not hard to engage in their enthusiasm for the game. That’s saying a lot considering a few weeks ago I was going to take a break from it but Backflip sucked me back in with the 3 new islands!

On the home front this week we’ve had a privacy fence replaced, torn down an old carport and put up a new shed. Not soon enough spring will be here and then we can landscape and make things pretty outside to match the inside.

For the event I’ve already purchased the dragon statue thing but I need to find a good spot for it. I turned one of my islands into a Monolith Park with only one habitat on the whole island. Soon I will get my next wish and be able to wish for the final island! Makes me wonder how many new dragons/habitats they’ll be introducing this year.

Hope everyone is enjoying the new event. :-)

I just posted and then there were all these posts from you all that weren’t there before I posted! Guess I didn’t hit refresh? Sorry if I’d had seen your messages I wouldn’t have talked about the other forum!

AllRightyThen53's picture

Glad to see that you guys are coming to pro board DV. I've been there almost as long as I've been here. It is indeed a very friendly place. I've only posted one or twice there, just like I'm not good at posting here. Can barely find time to read, much less to post. In fact, I'm a day late to the party because I hadn't looked at the sites in several days. I missed a whole day of playing. Oh well, maybe I won't miss that 1000 roses. I couldn't believe that there was no News in the game about the event until this afternoon, and I had already done most everything.

Anyway, came on to say I had success with Sweetheart in coop. My Delight plus someone's Sweetheart the FIRST time. Wooo hoo, good luck and koalas everyone, haha.

Edited to correct my combo.

ART thanks for Sweatheart info. What is your name at proboards? I'd love to add you to my friends list there.

Saw something new I hadn't noticed before in DV. If you are breeding in coop and use the search filter you'll see a banner with a heart on it at the bottom of the list. Tap on it and if a dragon is in your wish list and being used in coop, it will show up. No need to search the whole list or check all the filters for one you're missing. :-)

ART : You're added to my friends list at proboards. :-)

To see what an egg looks like, even if it's not available:

Open your dragonarium and select the "Pedestals" section. Tap the category you need or select "All". Locate the egg you wish to view and tap the image. If it's not available the "not available" message will appear. Underneath this message you have two buttons: "OK" and a banner icon with a heart and a green + (plus sign). Tap the banner icon with the green + (plus sign). Your egg's picture will appear. :-) Choose yes to add the pedestal to your wish list or no to close the image.

Hey all. The new dragon I got was Sweetheart. My delight and some hussy dragon sweetheart. Thanks for adding me. I'll have to pay more attention over there and maybe I'll learn something with you as my tutor,

Hey thanks for the trick on how to see those pesky unavailable peds. Also works with the shy dragons too. Do I have to accept you as friend or add you from my side?

The advantage to adding each other as friends or following someone is being able to quickly see their posts. Especially helpful with the many threads over there. You don't have to accept, but I'm honored you chose to add me as a friend. Thank you.

Lynn and FP, same to y'all, thank you. :D

In the DV Community, if someone tags you, quotes you, or likes your post, you get notifications on your profile. I really like that!

I saw your post on DC (DragonVale community). You are such a smart one, you are. I have been having that same problem and always have to google the peds. And I had no idea how the wish list worked. Thanks bunches!

You said you’ve been a member but never posted. Why not, you are so clever with your stories, missing dragons and such.
Thanks for friending me also!

Because I'm shy... I tend to hang back when around new people and try to get a feel of the forum. That one is huge with a good sized admin circle. I went there looking for help to use here and never felt the need to get involved as an active member.

I discovered the egg thing by accident and no one had mentioned it in their answers to her question so I did.

The wish list turned out to be more involved than I thought. I figured it as a way to track dragons you still needed, nothing more. Your friends can see your wish list when visiting and put up a dragon you need, perhaps one they have that several friends need. You can use it to track dragons, peds and even missing decorations. Like a decoration offered during an event but decide to wait on it? Add to your wish list and to serve as a reminder for BEB, later events or your next available wish. Not sure what to breed in coop? Tap the filter option on your friend's side and select the wish list icon. Voila! A list of your missing dragons available in coop for you to try and nab! (Hopefully, lol!) It's one of the best things BFS has added to the game.

Oh, that’s perfect then. I have a “wish list” on the back my friends gifting notebook. Lol I keep a list of everyone who gifts me and little dates of each gem, so I can return in proper order. :D Also I have a list of all the twins and twin peds I need. So now if I can list all this into the wishlist feature I won’t have to keep referring back to my notebook. Great for when I’m at work and notebook is at home ;D
I so understand the shyness anxiety. Inised to be a lot more shy. Would take me months to get comfortable in new surroundings. I guess it wears off with age lol. Try to be more brave, like you are here. You have so much to share.
