  • Basically just categorizing dragons with feathered wings, feathered bodies, or otherwise.

    • I would! Maybe fur, too?

    • Hmm, I'm not so certain about this. The wiki does categorise different morphologies but not any other features. In the encyclopedia on the webpage there aren't such morphologies as feathered or furred even if those features might be included in the descriptions of some dragons. I don't think those categories are really needed, though I don't know how many would agree with me on that. :)

      I think I tentatively agree...however, it is something to consider. Categories by colour might also be another thought.

    • I would strongly oppose personally, just due to all the current confusion surrounding the wiki's current morphological categories. While most are taken from the site, some are already added in at user or spriter request, I just don't feel morphologies is an area that needs further expanding. Dragon Rarity still needs an overhaul if you're looking for a project though, someone's already started a discussion on the wiki for it :D

  • I'm making a Dragon Cave Fan Ideas wiki, and I just posted a page using pretty much the same coding as pages on the Dragon Cave wiki, but I noticed the templates aren't coded in. Can you help fix that? https://fanmadedragcave.fandom.com/wiki/Draconic

    • Hi and congrats on starting your own wiki! I'll be completely honest in saying that I would love to help but I barely have free time anymore, and struggle to find time to work on this wiki even. Templates on wikis aren't pre-coded in, you have to add them in yourself. They're a type of page (called a "namespace") much like Category but just called Template instead. I recommend visiting Community Central, Wikia's wiki, where there is a forum there you can chat to others and get help and guidance. You'll also want to create your own templates rather than copying those from other wikis as this is usually frowned upon, though Community Central should have links to free templates and even themes that you can copy and use instead.

  • https://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/File:Nirami_Alt_Arcana_Hatchi.png https://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/File:Nirami_Alt_Arcana_Mature_Hatchi.png Hi, I have these two alt sprites for Nirami. Is it okay for them to be uploaded on the Arcana page?

      Loading editor
    • I'm just checking in with the spriter now- it's best to PM them before uploading it to the wiki as on the rare occasion they prefer to hold on having them added (for example TCA's Arcanas). Once they send through a reply, we'll follow through on their wishes :)

    • Copying reply from Thread:26205 to close off this thread:

      Re-colouring sprites without an artist's permission is a serious violation of rules, and adding to that faking their personal Alts is strictly forbidden. As per standard procedures on the wiki, a formal block with time expiry will be issued and I recommend having a read over the Wiki policies to avoid possible future mistakes (it's also recommended to read the DC rules in general as this is a serious violation of their rules too, and copyright violations of this nature can get the wiki in trouble with Wikia staff as well). Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me.

  • So there's been recent confusion over the current raffle requirement (raise 3 sea serpents) because the on-site Encyclopedia and this wiki disagree on a few breeds. Namely, this wiki lists Thalassa Xenos and Blunas as Sea Serpents, when the site only considers them Wyrms and Amphitheres respectively. TJ has stated that the encyclopedia is authoritative on body types. Perhaps the wiki should be standardized to the site's categories?

    • I'm unfamiliar with how dragons with multiple affinities actually work with the relevant mechanics ingame. But when dozens of users are going to the forums and chatrooms asking why their Bluna isn't counting for the Sea Serpent raffle, and cite the wiki as being their source for that information, and then other people say the Wiki should be updated to reflect the encyclopedia, I think that in and of itself is an issue.

      It's exactly the same as morphologies. The primary one is used for mechanics themselves while the secondary is used to provide more of a description of the dragon itself. This is roundabout how TJ described affinities, saying that sometimes one is not enough to best describe a dragon (whether this is from him or spriters, I can't say).

      Considering the other half of people, which includes many creators of said dragons, want to have this information available, do you have any suggestions aside from the notices already present on each category page in order to draw more attention to the game only using primary stats for in-game mechanics?

      Edit: Found & currently reading the thread on the forum that was cited, my reply there. Honestly I think this has been blown out of proportion given that there is concurrently an error with the site itself as confirmed by TJ on that thread. It was still a good thing to highlight, and the parent morphology category has been updated to contain the same warning as the affinities one. In my opinion, I think this is enough, though we could add warnings elsewhere? If that's the case, any affinity-related material should be updated as well for future-proofing.

  • On some breed pages, there are nicknames listed that nobody actually uses - they may have been used during release when the official name was unknown, but after their names were revealed, I've never seen those nicks used again. For example, "Flare" has not been used for Fever Wyverns, as far as I can tell. They don't fit in with "Vine" or "Marrow", which are still used. May I remove unused nicks? There are a few articles where nicks were taken out due to disuse such as Golden Wyvern, but I thought I'd ask because they're a special case.

      Loading editor
    • Yeah those can be removed, it was on my list to do but turned into one of things of "if I see while doing something else I'll get to it". I'm in full agreement with you and no one really objected when brought up a long time ago, so go ahead :)

  • Could i add my scroll to your click site?

    • Hi there! This is the DC Wiki, I don't own any particular click site myself. To add your scroll to a click site, you will want to visit that site and use any contact links or details there to get help.

  • Since the update today, I was lucky enough to snag one of the new eggs! Here's the sprite and desc if you need to add it somewhere. I found it in Alpine, and saw one that said something about wind gusting around the egg too. This egg's description is "This little egg is soft with a few feathers stuck to it" (no period after).

      Loading editor
    • Also, I was wondering if there was a form or something of the sort to apply for a Bureaucrat/Bureaucrat-like rank? It's totally okay if not!

        Loading editor
    • Thanks for posting the egg! Staff positions on here are given to users who edit frequently and become a trusted member to receive the additional tools. To be completely honest, you don't need to be any form of staff to contribute and help on the wiki- simply just editing achieves the same really!

    • Oh, alrighty! Thank you :)

  • Hello! I just noticed that the notifications feature has been updated as I got a notification when my trade offer was accepted: "(username) accepted your offer on their trade. The eggs or hatchlings have been transferred to your account.". I haven't found any information about this on the forums though so I don't know if this is the only update or if there has been more of them. I just thought I'd let you know in case you weren't aware of this already! I also searched through the Wiki but it seems to me that the feature is only mentioned in the category page of the release so I wasn't sure where this update should be added.

      Loading editor
    • Hiya! It seems that it's the Notifications feature from that category you linked above that's now been expanded as part of the August release updates by the looks of things. It can just be noted on Currently Being Released (if not already) and will then move into the wiki once the release is completed.

        Loading editor
    • Right, thanks! I'll add it and let's see if someone else knows more already.

  • I would like to be able to Post my dragon eggs here, I came back after so many years and I am looking forward to raise new dragons

    • Hi and welcome back! You can post your dragons on your User Profile if you want (you'll need to register an account on the wiki to do this), but I'll be honest in saying posting them here won't do much to help your dragons- you'll want to instead use the Click Sites page to find hatching sites for your eggs. Posting your eggs anywhere on the wiki isn't allowed as we're a knowledge base rather than a forum/dedicated hatching site.
