Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

There's an entire subforum dedicated to trading/giveaways. Some threads you might be interested in are the Departures thread, where players give away dragons in a free-for-all (FFA) format; Breeding, Gifting, which allows you to request specific dragons and other players gift them to you; dragon trading thread, a generic trading thread; the rare trading center, a trading thread specifically for non-metal non-prize rares; and prize central, a thread dedicated to trading prize dragons.

thankyou!, i know about those subforums and threads, but nowhere i found if it was possible to request a specific dragon, as is the one on my signature, that i am looking for, so i am not very sure if it is possible to ask for him

 

do you happen to know why the problems with the clicks happen? or how can i fix it? :c

 

again thanks for your help

The dragon in your signature is an adult now so there's no way you can trade for him. Best you can do is leave the note in your signature and maybe you'll be able to get an offspring from him. Maybe rename the parents to something like "PM rhuen on forums" though personally I'm not sure how much attention the new owner might pay to the parent names now that he's grown up.

The dragon in the sig matured in 2009. I am GUESSING what is wanted is just A black dragon ?

 

So the thing to put in your sig would be "Looking for a black dragon".

 

If you actually need to find nulk - maybe the best thread would be the missed departures thread ? "Does anyone know who owns nulk" kind of thing ? Is it the NAME you want ? there's a thread for exchanging names somewhere...

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but I'm also not sure where TO ask.

 

It's about refusals, more specifically from Holiday dragons. Earlier in the year I was lucky enough to be gifted a mate for a Valentine's checker of mine. However, upon test breeding when it grew up, the pair refused each other. When this happened, I was under the impression that they would never breed again whatsoever, and thus I would need to get a new mate.

 

Then when Valentine's rolled around, I found that the pair COULD breed again, resulting in the Valentine's offspring. I remember reading somewhere that Holiday's don't refuse in their respective breeding periods, so I was quite surprised when they bred, and came under the impression that the could breed during the Holiday, but not any other time.

 

I'm now currently looking at the female non-holiday of the pair, and it's showing the mate she previously refused but accepted at Valentine's as being able to breed with her again. Is this some kind of glitch or am I missing something?

Well, when those holiday refusals were first taken down, I had one pair that bred in season and didn't refuse again afterwards, so there at least used to be a chance to get a different result. In any case, it won't hurt to try.

I am not sure where to ask. but i had noticed some "Ghost clicks"

 

lets say, i clicked on the egg of my friend's scroll, wich had 2 clicks.

 

The click takes me to the egg page, it shows 3 clicks, so i click my friends name to return to his scroll, but the egg shows only 2 clicks!?

 

it has happened in all scrolls i had visited, what is happening? does my clicks no longer count? if so for what reason? :c

 

back in 2009 i could click each egg once every day and anybody else's eggs and hatchlings every day and it would count but now it has changed?

 

i'd appreciate a PM as i often lose forum threads ^^'♥

 

--

Also, are we allowed to make a thread or is there a thread to ask for specific dragons to trade/ adopt ?

From my understanding, clicks, views and unique views have always been by IP.

 

That said, there are various ISPs (including my own) that change one's IP approximately once every 24 hours, which is something of a hold-over from a time when ISPs were trying to solve the 'halp, we're running out of IP addresses' problem by only assigning IPs to active users, thereby having a reason to shuffle them around to, well, whoever was active. That still helps to some degree (most people are not online 24 hours), though given internet usage is so much higher these days not to the degree it used to.

 

So, the obvious question would be whether you switched ISPs since then. smile.gif

 

Regarding the phantom clicks, it's also always been that way, sadly. The view page just tends to assume that if you're viewing it, you're also giving it a click, but when it goes to actually add the click, it turns out that there already is one from a given IP, and the counter doesn't really go up. It showed you that it went up as a heuristic, basically, as far as I understand it.

I hope this is the right place to ask, if not, please delete my post wink.gif

 

I was thinking of a possible new dragon to post in dragon request, but i'm not sure if i can: i have the idea very clear in my mind, but i can't draw (really terrible), and i'm totally uncapable to use programs like Photoshop or anything else.

 

Should it be possible to propose my idea anyway, maybe posting an image that describes what i mean?

In the color sort for my scroll, the heart stealing dragon shows up in the middle of my blue dragons. (In between my water and blue two-headed). I was wondering if this is normal? It seems very much out of place that this dragon isn't with its other pink/red companions. See it here: http://dragcave.net/user/andromedae

This is a known issue and has a whole thread about it !

 

https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=173590

 

@ rhunen - in your place I would change my sig; it suggests you think you CAN trade for an adult; what you WANT is an EGG from nulk.

 

Here is the random help/ missed connections thread.

I wish the link for the Valentine stash would be fixed soon, too... Either take it out, or fix the link to show the stash smile.gif

Is it normal for Two-Headed Lindwurms to only breed one color? (Like so)

 

 

I've bred all my Lindwurms like this and have only gotten purples.

It's totally random, unless your scroll is bugged. This guy has two purple offspring and just produced a green offspring, even though he's purple, with a green mate. If you want his green egg, just say so. I'm doing a long two-headed lineage, but don't really need 2Gs anymore.

Ah, thank you. I know certain breeds copy the color of one parent so I wasn't sure after getting only purples over the course of the month.

 

Sure, I'd be happy to home them. I'll PM you.

Ultimate Guide to DR sticky: https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=100141

 

Q: How do I get my dragon request approved? What information should I include? What guidelines should I follow?

A: To get your request approved, we need to see that you’ve thought out the dragon. When we mod requests, here is what we're looking for:

- An in depth physical description or sketch or sprite

--- Your physical description must include more than just the color of the dragon. Also think about size, shape, build, wing type and number of wings, head shape, special features (spikes, frills, fur, armor), end of the tail, etc. No sketcher or spriter likes to be bound by extremely strict restrictions, but some idea of what you’re looking for always helps inspiration.

--- Another dragons description is not a physical description. Saying your dragon has "wings like the embers" and "feet like reds" is not a description. It is a comparison and a copy. Rather, take a look at those wings that remind you of your idea and figure out why, then lay it out with words or do a quick sketch or doodle yourself.

--- Pictures as references are good and can be helpful, whether you've drawn these yourself, or grabbed it off the internet (with credits to the original artist or site). However, they are also not a stand in for a description. They can help get your point across, but you must also either sketch it yourself or describe it in your own words.

--- Just because you add a sketch or sprite into the first post doesn’t mean it has to be the one you stick with. Don’t be afraid to ask for other sketches. It’s fine to want to do it all on your own, but be prepared for serious critiquing. Nothing is ever perfect and certainly not the first time around.

- Breed description; other information on the dragon

--- Flesh out your concept. Other information about the dragon could be personality, quirks, habits, habitat, diet, mating behavior, why it’s named whatever you named it, ect. We would like to see at least a paragraph with any combination of this information.

- Biome Info

--- The biome/s the dragon will be located in need to be included somewhere in your post.

- In special cases: biological information

--- A lot of dragons have some special ability or power to do something or some odd physical feature. This is fine, but don’t expect the people who participate in the thread to think everything out for you. Have some idea of why and how your dragon is an amazing flyer without any wings whatsoever (why does the dragon need to fly if it doesn’t have any wings? Why doesn’t it just have wings instead? How is it flying without wings?). Saying that the dragon “just uses magic for all that stuff” is a cheap cop-out and won’t fly. If you are having trouble coming up with any (reasonable) explanation, feel free to PM me. If I can’t seem to help, there are a lot of people I can go discuss it with and help you come up with something. Don’t PM me if you’re just too lazy to do any research or work on your own suggestion – only if you’ve really thought about it and can’t come up with anything good or reasonable (I’ll want to see what you’ve managed to come up with so far).

- To fit into DC

--- There is a basic Medieval setting to DC (so you can imagine a timeframe), so a cyborg dragon just isn’t going to fly. Even if you give me ten pages of information on your dragon, it doesn’t fit in with DC and will not be chosen.

- References

--- If you have some color or texture in mind it helps to link an example. More importantly, if you're basing your dragon off an animal or a legend or whatnot, make sure you include a reference link or picture, because not everyone will know what you are talking about or be able to picture it right away. When people come into your request topic, it's always nice if they don't have to ask fifty questions to finally understand the concept or have an idea for a sketch.

- Readability

--- Your request needs to be understandable and readable, with some semblance of grammar and spelling. If it isn't, how can we help you get work done on it? If your request is too hard to understand or it's too confusing, you can always pop into the description proofreading thread and ask if somebody there will help you whip it into shape.

The scroll help page needs an edit. I was just looking at "freeze" there and it says.

 

Freeze

Can be performed on: Unfrozen hatchlings.

Usage Limitations: Can be performed 10 times per 2 weeks.

 

But on MY hatchie pages (as I have gold and froze one the other day) it says:

Freeze

Permanently prevent the hatchling from maturing into an adult. (You can use this action 15 more times before you must wait for a few weeks)

 

It will be a tricky edit - but it needs doing...

Okay so I picked up this egg in one of the biomes because the description was unfamiliar to me. Imagine my surprise when I saw it was a Chicken egg! blink.gif When did the Chicken egg description get changed?

I think it might have been changed when the original pygmies were introduced?

No, it was sometime after that. I think about two years ago.

I didn't know they were. Maybe someone in the thread put it up ?

 

Chickens changed about two years ago.

Just tossed in another egg and it seems you are correct, someone else must have added it. How odd, especially as it was within just seconds of my leaving it. huh.gif

Huh. Well I haven't seen a Chicken egg since we ha to do AP trading until today. At least now I know what to look for if I want more.
