Can anyone help me with this please?  What do I have to do to make the image show as it should?

Copy/paste just gives me a tiny blank box.

 

Copy the image's url/location, then you can use the old image code or the updated image code, which is open bracket, img=, the image url, and ending bracket.

I posted a DC link embedded in bbcode and got that approval thing. Is it all DC links or just view links?

 

I think it must be flagging all DC links to creatures, view or lineage.

Thank you for this.  Is there anywhere here to tell us how to to edit the signature?  I'm trying to do different things but getting nowhere.  Sorry I'm an editing luddite.

If you have any questions, ask here or check out this thread which goes over some of the new forum stuff. I'll need to update the How to Code Signatures in the FAQ now that the forum has upgraded, but I haven't yet. =U

It should definitely only be disallowed links (view and image links)

OK - I see that does actually happen. So - why ? it will make game playing very tough. Viewing adults always used to be allowed...

All view links have "always" been blocked. Linking to lineages has always been okay and should not trigger post moderation.

I got the "an error has occurred" page when breeding both of my adult Bailaka pairs just now. The site is counting them as having bred, so I won't even be able to see if the site counts them as having rejected each other or not for another week...

 

Is anyone able to breed their Bailaka dragons right now, or am I just having terrible luck?

 

(I'm not getting this error when breeding other dragons. It's only my Bailaka dragons.)

Yes, I got an error too, but was able to successfully breed a Script. I'll go report. It seems a little shady that we got an error and no egg. xP

Thank you! :) Not that I'm happy to see anyone else have errors, but I'm kind of relieved it's not just my dragons, haha.

No error but I did get 2 refusals from 2 tries.

Third time I tried a baikala and a 2 headed lindworm instead of a pb baikala and did get a baikala egg

Just today I've had this butt-ugly thing pop up in my signature - a huge box blaring "please update your account to enable 3rd party hosting" - umm, what and why? How do I get rid of it since it's so very unattractive and clicking on it does nothing.

Photobucket recently made it so that images can't be linked to off of Photobucket unless the user pays a rather large fee. If you right click on the image and go to the source URL, you can see the badge that it was before. If you'd like to keep it in your signature, you'll need to upload it to another site.

 

Here's a thread about the changes.

This solution has not worked for me. When I go to the source URL I get the same "lovely" image as is showing in the siggies.

You might need to hard refresh the page (Ctrl+F5) directly from Photobucket. Just a bit of lag.

 

If that still doesn't work, I'd be happy to save and upload it somewhere else and send the link.

To adults ? Check the bingo game threads and go fish.  CRAWLING with view links.

I can access the Encyclopedia entry from the pages of baby Baikalas (eggs or hatchis), but not from the grown-up versions. It's probably not supposed to be like that, is it?

Have you unlocked the adult images? I clicked lots of adults today to unlock the images, now I have the links.

That's how the Encyclopedia always works, as far as I remember. If you have unlocked the hatchling sprite in the Encyclopedia but not the adult yet, that is exactly how it will be. My Script dragons behave the same way; I have already unlocked the egg and hatchling sprites, but don't have the adult unlocked; the hatchling has a link to the Encyclopedia entry but the adults do not.

 

Just look at some more Bailaka and unlock the sprite, and you'll get that link soon enough.

Well that's odd. I have all the greens unlocked but not all thee blues - BUT - I have 8 of each. And it shows me as having observed 13 eggs. I clicked every last one of them....

 

Not worried or anything - just puzzled.

Oh, thanks! I never noticed until now. I had only checked with my Script Dragons before posting, but you're right: I have 5 of those, so the adult sprite is unlocked.

Thank you all for answering!

Does anyone know what dragon breeds produce a black stripe, or where the thread that mentioned what breeds produce what stripes went? So far the only dragon breed I know that produces black stripes are Black dragons.

Black marrows do. It also used to say on the wiki page, but I haven't looked in a while.

Here is the thread on Stripe Breeding. It has a link to the wiki as well.

Is there no longer any way to track messages ? I tried hitting unread content while in my message box and it just showed me every single thread where I hadn't read something. :blink: NOT what I needed to know... I just need to know if this one message has been read.

 

EA oh wait. OK - it's in the very very very small print ! Forget it !
