Tiny Little Questions

Can anyone tell me why sometimes when reloading a page (AP or biomes mostly), down at the bottom where the little 'loading' notice shows up for just a moment, it shows 'loading facebook'? Why is DC loading anything from Facebook? And it's not even some ad-thing because I have a subscription so nothing ad-related should be loading. 

 

Found the following in a quick inspect

I googled that link and came across this document: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/meta-pixel/get-started, in which it said 

Quote

The Meta Pixel is a snippet of JavaScript code that loads a small library of functions you can use to track Facebook ad-driven visitor activity on your website

 

Quote

Implementing a Pixel is one of the cornerstones of Meta Marketing to help you measure, optimize your ads and create the most relevant audiences for your business. 

 

And if you scroll down to the base code, it has the following, which is exactly what is in the screenshot in the script section above

Quote
  s.parentNode.insertBefore(t,s)}(window, document,'script',
  'https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/fbevents.js');
  fbq('init', '{your-pixel-id-goes-here}');
  fbq('track', 'PageView');

 

Whatever the other nonscript section in the screenship that also has the facebook.com is loading I'm not sure, but I think it is most likely related.

So it is an ads thing it seems. Maybe disabling ads only disables the ad loading but doesn't disable that script? I'm using an adblocker and this chunk of code still exist on my page so

I was going to say 'it'll be Facebook Analytics - basically a tool to figure out what demographics in aggregate use your site and where in aggregate they primarily come from', but the particular brand (Facebook Analytics) doesn't seem to exist any more. I don't what it's called now, but I assume the feature itself still exists.

 

In general, this sort of thing is usually called a 'marketing pixel', from the time when these were 1x1 transparent pixels embedded on your site (which isn't necessarily what happens these days). It's often tied to incoming ads (i.e. if there's an ad for Dragon Cave somewhere else), but not to ads on the site it's embedded in itself.

Is anyone else experiencing their new Valentine dragons changing the order they're sorted in, after growing up?

See, I have two sets of twins that I managed to get ahold of (twin Soulstones and twin Sakuhanas) and they've since grown up. I wanted sisters specifically so I could name them after a pair of sisters in Marvel Comics. So I waited for them to grow up before naming them, because I wanted the top/first to grow up one to be named after the older sister, and the one below it named after the younger sister. But they keep switching order?

Amora of Asgard WAS above Lorelei of Asgard. They keep switching back and forth as to who is sorted first. Same thing keeps happening with the Sakuhanas. Will it stop after the vday breeding stops? I mean I know they're twins, but they won't indefinitely keep switching back and forth, will they? It won't mess with lineages or anything, it's just kind of annoying to look and see them on my scroll switching order like this.


I use Legacy Breed name sort for my scroll, if that means anything.

I wonder if this has something to do with my browser, then? Because looking at them now, Lorelei is still on top at this moment.

 

Maybe this is DC telling me it's time to delete my cookies... 🤔

The minigame is driving me crazy because I don't know how a "paper label" looks like. Does anyone know?

You're welcome! It's very easy to miss, even knowing what it looks like. XD

 

There's also a thread that has everything (currently known) pictured.

hi everyone, so I recently got back into this website and collecting dragons and I have some questions about the encyclopedia. I joined in 2013 so I had a pretty big collection of dragons before the encyclopedia feature was added, and it appears that the dragons I had before the addition aren't counted? For example I have an Albino Dragon that was hatched and raised in November 2013 but my encyclopedia says I haven't raised a single one. Do I need to start over from scratch to register it in my encyclopedia?

 

Since they aren't listed as being registered, I can't buy certain eggs from the market even though I own those dragons. 

 

I also have a similar problem with the status of my breed limits. My breed limits page says I have 0 Sweetlings, for example... but I definitely have one. At first I thought it was just because I haven't gotten any new Sweetlings for this Valentine's season, but the breed limits page does list my Radiant Angel which is from the same year as my Sweetling-- 2014.

Breed limits only apply to CB dragons now! Also, yes, the encyclopedia only registers dragons viewed or obtained after the encyclopedia released.

The encyclopedia only 'counts' dragons obtained after it was released, but to unlock the entries you don't have to own the dragons. You can unlock encyclopedia entries by viewing other people's eggs/hatchlings/adults (clicking around in hatcheries is a good place to start).

Thank you guys for the replies! One more potentially silly question, how would I go about getting the new Valentine's egg released today? It spawns in the Valentine's biome right?

You can get them in any Biome except Valentine, until 16th Feb.

The Valentine biome is for the older Valentine breeds. It will disappear at the end of today.

They were always limited, you have 3 wrong tries every round (once you fail it starts over and the items relocate and you have to find them all again). But you should've gotten the badge after completing the first day's event, and you seem to be on second day? Unless the story proceeds regardless of whether you completed the first one, in that case I'm sorry about what your device is doing, but you could keep trying to see if they improves I suppose...or maybe TJ would do something about the mobile issue before the event is over :(
