I keep a stall of 90% reindeer ponies all purely for questing. I've never, ever had any problems getting their UDLs up. One of my fairly fast questers finished about 3 medium quests. Then I accidentally quested him back to back, entering him-finishing him, and entering him again by mistake.
Naturally it will take a while for him to finish with no UDL, but it's been about 5 contests or more and his experience bar isn't even seeming to move much. I can't get one single UDL off of him and it's really irritating me. He's never had any UDL gaining problems before.
Every time he contests, he loses mood like crazy. So I fill it up with snacks, contest him again, and his mood goes down again with no/almost no experience gained. He doesn't always place dead last, but for some reason he's been dragging by placing 90-110 in SPLITS.
I even added items to help him get back up toward the middle. It's not helping. Can anyone help me? Killing him or releasing him wont open the questing space back up. = =

I find that when quested, ponies gain UDL's a lot more slowly. x.x
I have two flutters that are 1 level away from completing their quests and they still haven't made it there! Even though they began the quest being 1 level from the goal! I've entered them in two contests and have the same issue. I doubt there's anything you can do, though.

what type of contests are you entering him in?? I usually try to stick with marathons as all ponies can contest in those and i get udls pretty well
I think part of it might be that you are entering him in splits that have a rather big level range such as 201-500 instead of a more select one like 200-350 or something. Another thing might be that he's at a somewhat high level but it's low for the split range he's being entered in.
The problem is the contests he's in have splits of 201-500; he's only level 211, the bottom of the split, and so will always place very low in them, hence gaining very little exp. You need to find a contest with 0-250 or something similar so he'll be at the higher end of the scale, and thus will place higher and gain much more XP per contest.
He's in the wrong split, he's in 200 to 500, and he's only level 211. If you want him to place well, enter him in a contest that's like 100 to 250 or so, so his level is near the top of hte split, instead of at the bottom.
And killing him would open the quest slot back up, though releasing him won't.
Ooooh. I did notice that the levels stopped gaining about the time I changed from unlimiteds to splits. I only have a handful of ponies that are over level 2/300 so there is no point investing too much into narrower splits.
I'll just take him off those and selectively enter him. Thanks pony doctors.
