Clickable Eggs

Recommended Posts

The problem with hosting them on Photobucket is that you'd have to remember the whole account number/name/whatever plus the folder the pic is saved under plus the name of the pic itself. However, as smilies, all you'd have to remember (if this is implemented correctly) is something like :egg_white: or :hatchie_1_BBW: or :hatchie_m_gold:. Even a sticky would be better than an external PB account. However, if TJ could host the sprites for all tradeable eggs and hatchies on DC, it would be much easier if he used some easy-to-remember system. (The sprites could then be found under dragcave.net/egg/white.gif or dragcave.net/hatchie/1/BBW or dragcave.net/hatchie/m/gold, which would be pretty easy to remember.) This would also allow for implementation of common merged sprites, like trios, tinsel eggs or all stripes (or whatever people tend to request in one go).

The photobucket account is for the sticky I proposed on the first page if this was shot down.

Yes please. This would be awesome.

 

With the smily box issue, can we not just have a second box (next to Show All there could be an Eggs/Hatchling option(s))?

This would be amazing. Especially good for trading, quite a pain to go google up images of eggs you're trading (since using the image code for the egg on the site won't work).

As for the clickable idea for them, you could just have someone (I'm assuming TJ is the one in charge of the boards, I'm new here, so he probably should) download all the images and create "smiley" packs. These can be uploaded, and if worst comes to worst and they can't be put in the forum storage area (there is a designated are for smileys), then you can just upload them in a hidden forum and use the links. The smiley packs should work with Invision software, or at least they did last time I checked.

 

By uploaded, I mean the admin area should have a form for uploading a zip file of smileys.

I agree with this. It would make it so much easier for people to show differences and things like that. (like how people have issues with White/Silver/Grey eggs)

I think this is a great idea, it would save a lot of time. I fully support this idea ! biggrin.gifpoptartFINALTINY.gif

This would be great!!!!!!! It always takes me ages to get images into posts, and this would really help.

Also, about the smileys box being huge, maybe you could make a 'show dragon smileys' button, like the 'show all' button that there is at the moment.
