@Stormcaller I think the issue might be with the http no longer being accepted for image links. Replace that with https?

For some reason I no longer remember, I was using a blurry copy of my Water Walker banner in my signature.  Today, while looking around in some old files that I had saved from one of my old computers, I found what I believe to be the original of that banner.  So, I went right over and tried to switch them.  That was successful. IMHO, that banner looks as good as new. 

 

Unfortunately, in the process, my ARK banner disappeared and my other three banners changed to writing.  I copied another ARK banner and put it back in my scroll, but I have no idea how to fix my other banners.  Can anyone advise me what to do about this?

 

Not sure why - but image links in sigs haven't held up since the new forum software was set up; if you edit your sig they all fall over. However - here they are for you:

Thank you so much, Fuzzbucket.    Looking them up and giving the links to me was such a kind thing to do.  I was getting super stressed out over ruining my signature and you came along and saved the day!  I greatly appreciate it.  :D

 

Thank you too, Ruby Eyes.  I tried just adding an s but it didn't seen to work.

I had the same issues with my own sig, so found me a way around it by re-uploading my images... You are VERY welcome.

I wouldn't be able to tell with Imgur, really. That site has NEVER EVER worked for me. Personally, I hate it when people link to imgur albums instead of using the images directly in their forum posts.

For other sites, cutting the old link from the sig, pasting into notepad, adding that little s, cutting the "new" link and pasting it back into the sig has always worked. Sometimes needs a few attempts because this stupid forum likes being stupid.

If you want to experiment with the moon phases, keep in mind there are two moons for Valkemare! :D The next time both Aurax and Cirion are full is the 5th of May, if you want to try for that. (Contrast to the ones in real life, slated for the 26th of April and 26th of May.)

 

@pinkgothic Thanks! I actually forgot DC has two moons. (Guilty of not keeping up with lore!)  it is fascinating that on 5 May, they are both full at the same time!  I wonder if this would be a good time to try for Zombies. I might test it out. Although, it would seem to go against TJ‘s rules for zombies about closer to the 31st of the month being more likely.

@missy_ the only tiers of zombie-making tj has confirmed are the date-based ones, which, at the time he answered and aside from the regular nighttime one, had the same odds for all 24 hours. Given he also exposed the existence of a previously-unknown tier (Halloween week), I don't think he secretly implemented anything regarding moon phases.

 

 


@Shadowdrake Yeah, it is probably wishful thinking on my part. XD

@Stormcaller, I can relate. I tried making the slightest change in my sig and it resulted in me having to remake the entire sig from scratch. Luckily at the time, I had another tab open with my original sig. I had to painstakingly download each image to my desktop computer, then add each image back and recreate the URLs. At one time, we could simply copy our entire sig and save it for safekeeping in our ‘notes” area. Sadly, that no longer works. I wonder if, because it is now such a giant pain to recreate our sigs, if that is why so many people still have the tinypic links in their sigs. I see so many active players who still have those hideous things in their sigs. :blink: Personally I couldn’t wait to remove them, but recreating a signature now with no effective way to back it up, is a a pain.

They really do get screwed up now. I hope this problem can be fixed in a future update ...

Just to make sure, when you report a trade in the trading hub, you're anonymized, correct? Saw some trades yesterday that definitely broke some rules, but I was a bit worried that my username would be attached to it so I'm asking just for future reference.

Not sure if the mods can see your name, or not -- I imagine that they can. But the people you are reporting will not see it.

Mods can see, so if someone is inappropriately spamming reports we can do something about that too. But no other users will see, please use the report tool!

some small questions i've had!:

 

1. What is a "Saltkin"?

 

2. What is a "bloodswap"?

 

3. Why do people prefer CB over non-CB?

 

4. When a new breed comes out, people will say the egg in habitats "swaps with x and y", what does that mean?

 

i thinks that's it for now, thanks! :D

1. Spriters of the holiday dragons can make an alternate-color version of the dragon that only they can have, which is referred to as  a spriter's alt. Saltkin refers to a descendent of a spriter's alt.

 

2 Bloodswap means trading for an unrelated dragon with the same lineage -- same parent breeds, same generation unless otherwise stated. Also so that they don't get nasty surprises when someone renames or kills or zombifies a dragon that they have built a lineage on. Owning all the dragons in the lineage yourself makes it safer.

 

3. Not everyone does. But breeders like to start with CB's so their lineages start fresh.

 

4. Not quite sure what you are referring to here. People sometimes trade for an egg from a different biome because there are some dragons (Coppers for example) that give different breeding results depending on the biome that the mate comes from. So a lot of players will try to collect the new eggs from every biome that they can be found in.

There's a mix of things, some people consider having x number of the new release the scroll goal, others want x from each biome. Just for completion. There's also a few dragons that breed differently depending on partner's biome (coppers are the big one, but xenos lean towards mates biome as well) or maybe they think its a biome dependent alt and want to try to have even numbers (the pargs for instance). I personally do try to get one from each biome per NR, two if I can swing it.

 

For example, with pitfires, I ended up with like 4 girls from forest or something, so i was trading for boys from other biomes. (managed a pair from each biome in the end i think)

Its extraordinarily rare.

 

Scrolls are examined closely and its usually due to Multi-scrolling and Cheating.

Who exactly would one talk too about this? Is there a specific person you're supposed to go too regarding scroll burnings?

You can PM a mod.

 

But it's not likely to be reversed.

So, i just discovered that I can use the corporealize action on my frozen celestial hatchlings,

will it stay or do they revert?,

obviously it can't be used for breeding purposes-  it says "temporarily"  but i am hoping it's permanent---

something i'm curious about now.  i snagged an egg from the AP.  they're all at 4d15h to 4d20h left.  my vamp bit it, and it got repulsed.  i know i can't pick up that egg - but will i actually see it again on the AP? it has 4d19h left, so normally it would be appearing.  but since i can't pick it up again, would i even be able to see it?

 

i hope that makes sense! XD

Yes, if you had gone back to the AP immediately, you might have seen it pass through again, though vampire eggs get picked up quickly so it may have poofed before you even got there.

I'm sorry if it was explaied somewhere, but I didn't see it so I ask :)

 

Since forum update I noticed that when I post a reply to any thread, my post take much longer to be posted - button "Submit reply" change to "Saving..." and it takes a few seconds before my post will be posted (much longer that before forum update). It happens to every of my post, even if I only post one word (like in counting game threads).

Is this intendent and everyone have it like this now, or it's something I can change in some forum options to make it's faster again? I'm just curious what's changed that it now works like that, and if it's just me or everyone have it the same :)

It's just the forum being horribly horribly slow. That used to happen for a microsecond; now it hangs. And if you click it again in case of an error, you get a double post... (or even three - been there !)

Corporealise is only supposed to hold up for 7 days, so....
