same problem her working on phone and tablet but PC not

I suspect you're logged in on your PC? Because when logged out, the error does not occur.

Clearing cache & cookies did not help.

 

@TJ09 Are you aware of this?

That's weird. I might try my tablet.... Also my Linux lappie... Maybe this needs its own thread ?

 

ALSO I can see my stuff in hatcheries, and that doesn't  work when it's on maintenance....

 

All over now :)

Is anyone else getting this?  Do we know why?  (I tried to refresh my scroll and this appeared.)

Sorry about that, looks like it only affected people using a few of the older site skins (i.e. your dragons were just fine), but it seems fine now.

My scroll is hidden, but my eggs and hatchies keep getting sick! How can that be possible?

Someone has added your eggs and hatchies somewhere. Only fogging them can prevent more views.

Perhaps you are adding your eggs to hatcheries too early? Or to too many hatcheries? Or perhaps posting your eggs somewhere to show them off (eg. the Discord), so people can still get their codes even if your scroll is hidden... If you don't mind unhiding your scroll for a minute, send me your scroll link by PM and I'll take a look at your eggs & hatchies, give you my opinion.

 

Edit: Do fog them overnight when you can't keep an eye on them if you're worried.

Fogging all of them? That's gonna take a bit.. But thanks for the quick answer!

 

EDIT: As far as I know, I'm not adding them to anything, and I'm not showing them off in the DC Discord mainly because I'm not even there haha. I post them on a thread on a not so active forum, so I have no idea what's happening..

From your /dragons/ page, filtered by "Eggs/Unfrozen Hatchlings" you can click the "hide" link for each (I usually open them in new tabs so I don't need to reload my dragons page every time.)

Four questions I’ve been meaning to ask for some time now

Thanks to those in advance, if you take your time answering, it means a lot to me. I’m still learning in regards of the site and such, but people are really helpful !

 

_______________________________

1. Can adult dragons die of natural causes or can adult dragons only die if you kill them yourselves ? 

 

2. What does ‘looking for a mate for x’ mean / how should it be understood ?

 

3. How many Spriters Alts exist so far, if anyone has a number (doesn’t have to be specific) ?

 

4. What to do when you want to follow a member, but you can’t see the ‘follow’ button anywhere ?

Only you can kill your own adults.

Typically, people have a specific pattern in mind. Most often, that is a checkerboard, where all males are one breed and all females are the other.

E.g. a mate for https://dragcave.net/lineage/2bnIh would be https://dragcave.net/lineage/Nsmje - same lineage, different dragons (to avoid inbreeding). The result looks like this: https://dragcave.net/lineage/SQdjV

How many different Spriter's Alts exist can be seen here: http://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/Spriter's_Alt

How many individual dragons exist that are Spriter's Alts can only be estimated. Valentine's and Christmas dragons are usually max. 2 Spriter's Alts, Halloweens can be as many as the according spriter can trade for.

The "follow" button is on a given member's profile near the top, next to their name.

1. Dragons don't die of old age, only when you kill them.

 

2. This is a very good question, in fact, it is important for lineage builders, who want to expand their lineages in a specific way/pattern. For example:

https://dragcave.net/lineage/uHHbS If I want to make an "even gen"/"checkerboard" lineage (the very typical, triangular one), I'll be looking for a 2nd generation Summer from a female silver Shimmer, unrelated (by blood) to the one I own.

 

3. Honestly, we don't know for sure, some spriters actually remained silent and either never received a SA, or never revealed it to the public. The list of known SAs can be found here: http://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/Spriter's_Alt

 

4. That's probably because the member doesn't want to be followed. I think that's the setting you can use, but I may be wrong here.

 

oh my god ninjas

It's really difficult to find this option - but it's indeed there, in the top right corner of your follower list. Like so:

Not sure if this is just me - but when I go to the lineage page, the "here are some cats" banner and the others like it all line up to the left.....

I was just cleaning out Valley Sherwood's ER and noticed that the Freckled Dragons have extra space around their adult and hatchling sprites. (ex. The adult image is 100x100, but the sprite is only 93x93.) Is there a chance that they could be cropped in the future? I don't want to get too attached to the current lineage tile if there's a chance that it could change slightly.

I don't think it necessarily will change. It's not the only sprite that has a bit of extra space. The female Teimarr, for example, is 100x72 pixels even though the sprite itself is only 87x69. If you want to be sure, though, I think checking with @Kennon is probably your best bet. :)

@11th I'm not gonna lie, I never really noticed there being extra space around those sprites lol. As far as I'm aware it's not really something of concern for most people? So I can't imagine it'd change. I'm gonna ask though just to be sure and I'll post a for-sure answer soon hopefully.

Still like this.....I'm on St Pat's - are others getting it ?

 

ETA - just tested with default skin - and it does seem to be skin related; it's centred on that.
