Thank you for replying to my requests on the cooperative breeding page. For some reason my replies are glitching out, so I decided to post here. I saw that you were willing to let me breed with your mud dragon, and I thank you for that. I also noticed that you needed a procyron dragon, and I will have him up for breeding if you need. My GC is "Eman1003", and I will be sending you gems if you would like. Please don't send me anything in return, a mud dragon that I can breed with is plenty helpful. Thank you!
Hello! I just want to inform you that I went ahead and removed the note as reasons stated above and in my edit summary. Let me know if you have any concerns or would like to discuss about it more :) Have a nice day!
I don't think it was that subjective. The whole description is about how stories change over time, and the reason the story of "the stocking beans" came about is I think supposed to be because somebody misheard or misunderstood the original "the beanstalk" because stalk and stock sound almost identical. It's like the game Chinese Whispers.
I don't know if you didn't understand why they are similar (I don;t know if English is your first language), or whether you just haven't heard of the story it's based on (Jack and the Beanstalk), but whatever, it's really not a big deal. Maybe I could rewrite it so more people would understand what I meant...
"The decoration's name, The Stocking Beans, is likely based on the similar sound of the words stalk and stock(ing)."
So there's where I got confused. Maybe you could make it more detailed to indicate that it's something to do with Jack and the Beanstalk or add it as a double bullet point under the first reference. Just for your information, English is my first language and I have heard of the story before. If I'm not mistaken, there was a movie about it also. I used to watch it when I was young. I thought you were referring to the decoration's name overall and I was confused where the "stalk" came from.
Sorry if I caused any offence by insinuating you might not understand for language reasons or not knowing the story. I just meant to establish whether that was a possibility, so I could explain it better if it were.
I guess I was just assuming that the relation to "stalk" in beanstalk was obvious, but perhaps it isn't to everyone. There was a film about it, but in England, or at least when I was a kid, the original Jack and the Beanstalk story is pretty much the most popular fairy tale. But maybe some people just didn't spot the link in the first place, so perhaps I should put it as a secondary note under the link to the fairy tale.
The only dragon I don't have is the Snowy Gold Olympus. I am level 50. I don't yet have eggs for Mirage, Shadow, or the Snowys, which is why they're marked with an (X). I am also lacking eggs for Apocalypse, Aquamarine, Solar Eclipse, Moonstruck, Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, and Zombie. But they are just a matter of breeding when I don't have something else to get, because I have the dragons themselves. They should really have x's, but most people don't read that I've set the criteria as two dragons and an egg for complete, so eh.

Hi! We removed your note from the Crystal dragon page (and I think maybe from Flower when you were not logged in) as we don't generally add comments to dragon pages about how they are used in breeding other dragons. Additionally, once there is more than "one" dragon with an interesting fact, we don't continue to add it as it is no longer unique.
Fair enough. Thanks for explaining. I started out thinking it was just Crystal and Flower that did it, but then realised there were more when I checked, haha. Maybe if one of them gets a third it'll be worth noting. Sorry for any trouble I caused.
(The new Rose topiary note was also me before I signed in. Glad you thought it was valuable enough to keep, and I'll remember to say "likely" next time!)
Thanks! We do try to say "likely" only because, even when it's fairly obvious, we can't know for sure. On some things (like the "wibbly wobbly timey wimey ball of stuff" being a direct quote from Dr Who) there is no other possible explanation, but for most we use "likely", "probably", "may be".
In the case of the note you added, we just don't put "This dragon is part of the combo for that dragon" at all. It would get pretty complex if we did!
Yes, I see why it makes sense. And of course, that would get quite extenssive and needlessly complicated. I just meant that if a dragon is specifically required for more combinations than any other, it might be worth making that one exception. Purely hypothetical anyway, it may never happen.
So I just realised that Love requires Flower too. Derp. So there is a dragon that is required more than any other. I think being the only one required for three is a fairly big deal, but I won't make the note if you still don't like the idea.
I think it is best to continue the current process of not annotating when a dragon is used in other combos. This would get tricky to manage with various limited dragons (especially gemstones) coming out with required dragons.
I understood what you were asking. But if we add that, then we have users start adding a similar note to all kinds of pages! (i.e. "The Scorch Dragon is required to breed a Ruby"). That's the slippery slope.
