Is there some kind of list for inappropriate names? I know that obviously the big four-letter words and racial slurs are a big no-no, so it's not one of those. But I'm a little worried the word I want to use (kind of need to use 'cause it's part of some lyrics) is right there on the border, so I'd like to check.

You may want to check the Name Check Thread:

 

While there's no specific list, you can ask specifically if it would be allowed, and someone (a mod even) will answer.

Recently, some of the images in the forums have been showing up for me like this:

New_FSprite.gif   >> New_FSprite.gif

I only have Google Doc extensions enabled and it's like this on both Chrome and Firefox. Anyone know how to fix this?

I think this may happen when the forum is under heavy load and doesn't load everything completely - especially the image server.

Is it possible that certain pairings with tinsels simply do not produce tinsels, or am I just having horrendous luck?

I've been breeding (or at least attempting to) a silver tinsel with a sapphire dragon almost every single week since at least February 12th and have had either no interest or only sapphire eggs (so somewhere between 25-29 attempts). I've never had Goomy go this long without giving a silver egg :C

You're just getting really unlucky, Your tinsel will produce a prize egg eventually.

Is it possible you could try another sapphire. It sounds insane - but some pairs are really difficult.... Kind of like people, really :lol:

I'd assume not? I'm not experiencing the weird bulleted lists, anyway, either with the default or St. Patrick's Day skins. The site looks normal on my end.

 

Edit: I was using Chrome, but it looks normal in Firefox too.

Aw man, I don't want it to just a be problem on my end ;( I logged out and it proceeded to look a LOT worse. And I opened it up on my phone and it looks bad as well! So it can't be something that can be fixed by clearing cookies or something. I don't even use the same browser on my phone and laptop.

Edit: Doesn't happen on my phone's data so it's my wifi and on my end, nothing can be done + ignore me.

Hello, I made a dragon cave style for the browser addon Stylish. I wanted to ask if I'm allowed to "advertise" it here in the forum? Right now I have it in my signature and one post.

Er, should the site be looking like this right now?

 

I have the same problem, actually. Started just after the maintenance. PC, default skin, Firefox browser.

Clear cache, load again?

Oops, it totally worked. I thought it wouldn't bc I had it on two devices. It had already fixed itself on my phone after I switched between wifi and data twice so it probably has the same effect. I'm soothed that it happened to someone else tho.

For those with wonky DC pages: I had this problem today as well (from two different computers - my work and personal laptop) and a simple hard refresh fixed it immediately. :) I had to do a hard refresh on each affected page, but then the next time it loaded there was no longer an issue. Easy peasy! Hopefully this works for you guys, too.

 

Edit: whoops. Didn't see that there was another page and that you guys had it sorted. Sorry! But if there's anyone else having this issue, it should be a simple and quick fix.

I believe you'll have better luck getting that answered if you ask a mod or TJ himself. :3

It depends a lot on what you're doing to pages and how you're doing it. e.g.

  • I've seen stylish things that specifically hide ads. That's definitely a no-go.
  • If you're targeting minified CSS classes at all (such as "_1n_9"), that's not going to work since they're computer-generated names that can change/break at any time. I don't go out of my way to re-shuffle them, but I also don't go out of my way to keep them consistent.
  • The modifications you're doing to pages may in fact be against the site rules if they do anything that may provide an advantage over others.

When did the general dragon description change? I just noticed it, but I rarely actually look at that section of the view page.

Okay, thanks for the answer!

Is there a way to sort dragons by gender in groups - like by breed but you would have males above females or other way around? Because if I sort by breed the genders are all messed up - same with frozen hatchies...  Or only tiring custom sort allows me to do that?
