Oops, I must have missed something. I'll track it down asap :-)

 

 

Ok, that should be fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Hey, so this is a place to post problems about the Valley? I use this site every day; it's very nice, and I don't want to complain ...It's just that, one of my favourite things about it is that I could bookmark my Manage Dragons page, so I don't have to type my username in every time I want to look. That sounds lazy XD but my device keyboard likes to mess up and it takes forever to type it in, you see. In any case, now it isn't working like it used to, and I don't know what happened; the URL is the same, but it won't show me my dragons, it takes me to the main page instead.

 

Not sure if I'm explaining this clearly cx or if anybody can do something about it.

 

ETA: Or maybe it's the coding that changed that URL that's gone; I see that it doesn't switch to the "valleysherwood.com/?scroll=SCROLLNAME&first=first&auto=autooff" when I hit Manage Dragons anymore :c Why did it go away? No offence intended, but that was the best thing about the site, imo; you could bookmark it, as well as reload the page without typing in your name again and again. The Valley is just like any other clicksite with an auto-add now u.u

I just changed something behind the scenes, so let me know if anything breaks.

 

@purplehaze I've been looking into adding an optional authentication feature for users who don't want anyone else to be able to add their scroll. Maybe that will help to prevent any unsolicited "help" :-)

Oh please do! Someone keeps adding my brand new eggs to the site. I wish we had a way of knowing who was doing it.

Just to mention, seems to be working great now, but it was working for me earlier as well, as I was running the Viewer for some time (well, now technically yesterday) before rotating to give Views to some other sites.

Two hatchlings of mine can't be added. They had less than an hour to grow up and even manually adding them to the ER didn't work :/

I think it may have went down in that time. It wasn't loading for me at all. I was able to load it a few days ago though. I got in now however! biggrin.gif

It's VERY iffy today - mostly times out, and only occasionally actually loads. I wonder if it is a problem with the API somehow - one that is also hitting eatw, which is dead for 2 days now.

Looks like there are a few codes stuck in the site which aren't in the DC database anymore and thus cannot be removed from the site.

Valley Sherwood is not loading for me. It keeps timing out.

 

This happening to anyone else?

Valley Sherwood

 

A self-serve hatchery for Dragon Cave eggs and hatchlings.

 

http://valleysherwood.com/

 

Aug 19 2011: Released most of the new version of the site. New features include:

- An option to switch off the auto-add feature (the one that normally adds every dragon on the submitted scroll).

- Several changes to the info that is shown while viewing young dragons and choosing which to add/remove:

* Gender column added

* In site/out of site message is now displayed as a checkmark or X

* Lineage column added with a link to the lineage page, or "CB" if the dragon is caveborn.

- Viewer options now work without Javascript.

- Clicks now open in a new tab, because of the bug/framebreaker which would take you away from the fansite when clicking and would not let you return. Clicking more than one dragon on the same page should cause subsequent clicks to open in the same tab as the first click, however.

- Clicking the X next to a dragon in the viewer will run an update on it; it will be deleted if it's adult or dead, moved from the ER to the regular hatchery if it's a new hatchling, etc.

- Links page updated, finally! Sorry about that - it was so old, it still had Dragonnery and not AoND!

 

July 08 2011: Status of new version: currently unreleased. Main page re-coding finished, needs some minor style tweaks; interactive dragon removal added, but needs testing in older browsers; a few new tools still being coded, including a better scroll stats banner for signatures, hopefully with more options than currently (will of course work for new limits).

July 2011: Currently working on a new version of the site. If you have any suggestions for improvements or new features, feel free to mention them! Your ideas will definitely be taken into consideration.

 

Edit: I'll update the below list later. It currently describes the old version, and not the new one very well.

 

Add Dragons:

- Adding is done from the main page

- Enter scroll name to add all growing dragons

- After adding, checkboxes give easy add/remove functionality

- Time left and clicks/views/UVs are now displayed next to each dragon while adding/removing.

 

ER:

- All dragons under 4 days are admitted to the ER

- Automatic script runs once an hour to clean the ER and find new ERs in the hatchery

- Separate ER page allows for adding a single ER to the site

 

Viewing:

- Box of dragons is displayed on every site page & reloads by default every minute.

Viewer page has several options for giving views:

- Dropdown menu sets a time from 30sec to 30min for dragons to refresh

- Optional popup viewer shows random hatchery dragons & reloads every 3 mins

- Link to an ER popup viewer which displays all ERs and reloads once per minute

 

Tools:

Tools page has a list of available tools:

- View dragon's stats: enter a code to see relevant info about the dragon.

- Scroll status (locked/free) button. Example:

- Lineage/inbreeding: still in the works, but currently functions to display up to 7 generations of a dragon's lineage and highlights with pink background any repeated dragons in those generations.

 

Links:

- List of links to some other self-serve hatcheries

- Contact links (including one to this thread)
