How do parentless non-SB animals happen?

Postby Sophist » May 18th, 2012, 9:54:26 pm

I'm assuming these have always been glitches in the programming. I purchased two parentless albino direwolves a little while ago and am quite taken with them. So I'm interested in how these come about, which is maybe something the mods/admins could answer.

Are they indeed glitches?
Were they website setbacks or something which once had parents but lost them following a website crash?
Do they still happen or can we not expect to see many of these types of creatures in future?

Just curious. Thanks for any info. ^_^

Generally parentless hybrids/albinos happen when the parents ended up wiped from the system.
Last May at around this time we had a massive crash(nicknamed the MS Rapture) which caused a lot of creatures to just, poof, including hybrids. When Tristan got them back for people they were parentless.
It doesn't usually happen, they used to be a rarity from glitches till the Rapture last year in which case they became a lot more common than before.

edit: Alternatively while some creatures weren't lost their pages were wipes or whatever-many of hybrids, while not lost ended up parentless(despite their parents in some cases still existing).
Mainly glitches or massive crashes.

Moved to the correct forum. How about I make this a little simpler to understand:

Some parentless hybrids come from glitches in which their parents are wiped from the system or for some reason there's a 'break' and while the parents still exist, they are no longer linked or shown as a creature's parents. Most SB hybrids come from times when the site crashes and data is lost. If creatures are lost in these crashes and then replaced, any hybrid that is generated to replace a previous one will not have parents.
