It's not unnecessary, actually. Many people posted just https://dragcave.net/holidays16 instead of their user-specific link when asked for their house design, just because they copied the ONLY address available back then - the one in the URL bar. Unfortunately, this leads to everyone only seeing their own house instead of the one they wanted to see.

You either need to get shown the trick how to manually modify the link to show your own house to OTHERs, or figure it out yourself, and even then the forum autolinking "feature" made this somewhat tiresome. Getting the correct link presented with each event is actually very helpful for sharing.

 

The placement/styling of it, on the other hand, could use some improvement. Post a suggestion?

 

.

 

 

I already did ... shortly after mentioning my frustration

 

It used to be enjoyable to revisit my badges / exploits ... but now with annoying clipboard link ... not so much.

 

Why can't  the link be placed ABOVE the items being viewed such as Wreath, Tree , Snow Fort etc  ... it is distracting and very unattractive where it is now.

 

It was better before ......now it greatly detracts from enjoying the items named

What's the current status of Earthquake?  Do dead eggs from earthquake act as killed eggs and therefore take up an egg slot?  Do they count against your maximum kill total?  I remember how it worked before my break but now I've seen a few different explanations.

They count as kills and thus take an eggslot each for 24 hours.

They do not count against your kill limit. They just take up an egg slot for 24 hours.

 

Sorry! I was apparently wrong about that.

When was that changed?

I may be wrong. I haven't used it in forever. I thought it was the same as Vampire bites and the Vamp bite that just killed an egg on my scroll didn't count toward my kill limit -- unless something else came off simultaneously, but it shouldn't have because they were all Dec 31 kills for undead attempts.

"Just?" The only dead egg I see on your scroll died on 8th of January - your definition of "just" does not match mine XD

As soon as I get room, I'll do some biting to test - I'm pretty sure Bite DOES count towards the kill limit - it still did so in December last year, as far as I recall.

Bite did count the last time I used it. Just a sec.... (catch catch catch bite DEAD)

 

OK can confirm. I bit; I killed; I lost a kill slot.

@missy_  they are also catchable from the AP, even if they're no longer transferable! If you have time and speed you can grab at least a few extra; they show upside down in the AP so it's obvious (well, they did last time).

@missy_ - I have a lot of Flipped Mints despite never having been successful in the event - I stalked the AP for 'em, and I have fast reflexes...

 

Thank you both! Maybe I will get lucky in the AP this year (if the event returns). 

 

I have a question about reviewing user descriptions. If I open Account/Review User Descriptions and then close it without having performed any action on whatever dragon description is showing, (i.e., not choosing approve, reject, or abstain), will that description be presented to me at some point in the future for review?  Or do we only get one view per pending description?

 

I am wondering about how one starts and stops the review process--if one leaves while on a dragon page, I am hoping the page will display in the future for review. :)

 

Thanks for any clarification. :)

 

ETA: I may have answered my own question. It looks like once we return to Review User Descriptions that the same dragon appears that was previously shown (as long as we haven't chosen Approve, Reject, or Abstain).

Usually, yes, unless another description is submitted. Then you may get the new one but you'll eventually get the other one back.

XD Well, it is still within the time that it would count toward a kill slot, no? I must have miscounted my Dec. 31st kills, then, but I could have sworn my remaining kill slots didn't change when that egg died. I stand corrected. Sorry.

Is anyone else's "Recently Used" emojis on the forum no longer there? Is this a glitch or intentional change? I miss having the ones I like to use at the top...

 

@StormBirdRising They're silver right now, I think they turn gold tomorrow. :)

Yep! That feature disappeared recently. Now if I want to use one of them I have to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the list! (Because those old DC ones are almost the only ones I ever use!)

Anyone know what color Lunar Herald is dropping at this time? Thx.

The Lunar icon in my sig leads to a calender that predicts Lunar colours, if you'd like to bookmark that - pinkgothic built it :)

Hello once again! How to make a link into the text? I have my scroll link which I need to turn into a text, to look nicer, but it would still link to my scroll. Thank you 😃

You click on the symbol that looks like a lying 8 (or infinity symbol) above the field where you insert the text.

Then you get a pop up  that looks like this, where you enter the link and the text. That's all.

Yes, same thing has happened to me. Recently used default emoticons are not appearing. Have to manually scroll down to them.

 

Also @StormBirdRising, Daily Dragon Fix has a Lunar Herald tracker that can go into a signature and shows the current LH color. (I have it in my sig.) :) Current LH color is also on their website under Variant Toolbox.

 

ETA: Here is the link to view the Lunar Herald calendar:

I'm coming back after a reasonably long hiatus, and I seem to recall the Stone dragon having dimorphism.  Was this my imagination?

Yup, they never had dimorphism. Maybe you remember that breeding two Stones can yield either a Stone or a Geode?

To add to what Astreya said, if you're ever curious, the wiki page for each dragon has a little table showing all the old sprites previously used on the site. Just in case you ever wonder about things like this!
