Welcome to DC!

 

DC is like CS in that we are a petsite. However, where CS pets automatically grow after x number of days and do not need views, DC creatures give you 7 days (unless grabbed from the abandoned page) to get enough views, unique views, (and clicks - those help your dragons grow quicker but are not necessary) for your dragon to survive. Take a look around at other user's scrolls for an idea of what stats to aim for.

 

I hope you enjoy the forums. There's a lot of great things here, like the Common Collector's Competition, where you can be given rares just for raising commons. Might be a good opportunity for you. ^^

 

If you haven't checked out the new user slideshow yet or the cave help pages, you should! They're very helpful. Just in case, I will copy'pasta my explanation from the unofficial tumblr below:

 

DragCave is an adoptables site where you can grab dragon eggs (and a few random non-dragons) to raise. If you grab an egg from the main cave, you have 7 days to gain enough views, unique views, and clicks to hatch the egg. Clicks are not necessary to raise a dragon but they help eggs crack faster, they help hatchlings mature (or gender) faster, and the more clicks you have, the less views and unique views you have. Along the same lines, the more unique views you have, the less views you’ll need, but all stats work together to help your dragon survive. You know your egg is getting ready to hatch when it begins cracking. When the egg has a big hole in it, that is the final cracking stage.

 

An egg can hatch once it reaches 4 days or less left (although it can start cracking before this). It is best to leave eggs alone for the first 12 - 24 hours they are alive, as gaining too many views too quickly when an egg is too young can result in a sick dragon. If your dragon becomes sick, go to actions -> hide to fog the dragon. You should keep the egg fogged for 6 - 24 hours after it is better so it does not become sick again right away.

 

Hatchlings work in much the same way as eggs. You have 7 days to raise them by getting them enough stats. You know your hatchling is on the right track when it genders or matures - it will grow wings or grow bigger or etc. Once a hatchling has 4 days or less left, it can grow into an adult.

 

Dragons do not grow up automatically after their 7 day period. If they have not gained enough views and other stats, they will die.

 

Dragons grabbed from the abandoned page (AP) may have less than 7 days left to survive.

 

Once your dragon has hit 4 days left or less, you can enter it into an emergency room in a fansite so that it can gain views more rapidly and hatch sooner. You can place your dragons into forums, fansites, or other sites you are a part of in order to gain views and unique views. Make sure you’ve posted the dragon’s image in order to get views! If you simply post a link to the /view/ page, the dragon will only gain clicks.

To protect from sickness, you cannot gain more views than you have unique views. As well, once you have reached a 15:1 views:unique views ratio, you will no longer to able to accumulate more views until you receive more unique views.
