The invalid referrer thing is actually pretty simple, though kind of weird.

 

Basically, when you click a link in the browser, it sends "headers" along with the request to get the page you want. One of these is the "referrer" header (though, funnily, it was misspelt when the standards were being worked out, so now everything has to use "referer" internally) - this is the page you were on when you clicked the link. When you open a link in a new tab, though, or with some private browsing settings, there's no referrer header sent. For some stupid reason, DragonCave checks that your referrer header is a place you can find an Actions link on (or something like that, I haven't tested it much). So, when you open the link in a new tab, no referrer gets sent, and DragonCave complains for some reason.

so the impression i've gotten from oggling over the dragon wiki pages is that holiday breeds retire each year? if you want more of the previous years' breeds, you get them second+ generation from someone else. is that the end line? or did i miss some very brief opening on the halloween tab where they rereleased old ones?

There's a Halloween biome where you can get the old ones as CBs. It's  a new thing (only introduced last year) so some old info still claims you can't get them although now you can.

Nope eggs just go REAL fast :D On Halloween the new ones drop in EVERY biome (except the Halloween one if I remember correctly)

How many items are there to find in the Halloween event game this year? Not the ToT items, but the little story game. Hoping I got them all on my second runthrough LOL

When the new halloween breed drops on the 31st, will we still be able to pick up CB eggs of the old breeds from the biome or will it only contain eggs of the new breed?

The new breed will drop only in the regular 6 biomes, the others in the Halloween biome.

I see, that's a relief. I was beginning to worry that I had messed up planning for the event big time. Thanks for the answer!

After the 31st, are all the bred Halloween eggs deleted from the AP, or do they stay there until they've all been picked up?

In the past years, every single one has been picked up.

Still got the lag, but it's moving . . . more or less.

Does anyone know of a clicksite that keeps ER eggs in a constant refresher, even after they hatch? So you could hopefully make new hatchlings sick and die quickly?

 

The low time AP has me curious if one could stock up on more zombie hatchling fodder before midnight.

since that's generally NOT desired, no.  some browsers have an auto-refresher you can use.  I have one in firefox.  real easy to set my scroll to hide adults then just run the refresher to viewbomb my own scroll. (it's called Reload Every and you just tell it how often you want it to refresh).  Before they changed the sprites I wanted an army of the zombie hatchlings, haven't bother nearly as much since.

there is no such hatchery because that is not desired behavior.

Hmm, I was hoping for a less indiscriminate method. -

 

Allure of Neglected Dragons has a nice Neglected ER viewer, but that's for eggs with <2 hours or less. I'm mildly surprised there isn't a "Quick-fix hatchling killer" refresher out there though, since I know I'm not the only one who attempts zombies every month =P

Probably because that could be used by viewbombers to kill your hatchies really fast (?) if that is the general goal of such a AR viewer. Of course, you want it for your own but some people don't care about such "restrictions" sadly :(

... That is also a good point. I didn't even consider that in my fervor to test viewbomb this Pumpkin egg. Maybe some sort of registration required click site could work, but meh.

 

Edit:

In hindsight, I don't know if viewbombing your own scroll or using browser addons for refreshing it is against the ToC or not. I wouldn't know if killing your own hatchlings with sickness is considered an "advantage", so I'm going to play it safe and just let this Pumpkin live another day.

I did for years on my own scroll and have freely always posted about it.  No one has ever said it's not okay.  (and you can a. fog the ones you don't want to viewbomb or b. just refresh the individual egg page.  No, I don't use for hunting and never have.

I did few hatchie viewkills - in my experience it wont work on eggs with so low time left
