ATTENTION: Due to massive numbers and an increasing difficulty for people to get clicks for their eggs, we have decided to close membership to dragonspam. To make up for this we've created dragonspam2 for new members to join. Thank you!
dragonbrood: The place to go if you want to arrange egg trading!
Addicted to eggs from Dragcave but afraid your friendslist is tired of you posting eggs and hatchlings and begging for clicks? Then you've come to the right place. Here you can post eggs and hatchlings to get the views and clicks you need, without annoying the hell out of your friends.
Membership is by approval only. You will be added, likely within a day, unless: -You have no entries in your journal AND -You have no bio in your profile AND -You have disabled private messaging or enabled the privacy settings for them AND -You have no other email or IM contact information listed.
We need to be able to contact you in some way, or at least be able to see that you can read (and therefore understand the community rules). Please read the rules before deciding to join the community. If you have questions as to why you're being denied membership, either correct the issues listed above or, if you don't wish to, contact a mod and we'll get it straightened out.
IMPORTANT There are reports of people changing the codes of their eggs and hatchlings to redirect to a site other than DragCave. People have had viruses downloaded onto their computers from these sites. For your own safety, PLEASE hover over eggs and hatchlings before clicking them to make sure they link to DragCave. We cannot be held responsible for anything that happens if you click a non-DragCave link. However, we mods are responsible for dealing with people who change the codes. If you notice anyone who has done this, report them immediately. This kind of behavior is absolutely not tolerated. Anyone who changes the codes of their dragons to go to a site other than DragCave, whether or not that site downloads malicious items onto people's computers, will be banned immediately, and will be reported to both LiveJournal and DragCave staff.
RULES 1. ONLY ONE POST PER DAY. Yes, the name of the community is dragonspam, but we don't really WANT you to spam. This means one post per (roughly) 24 hours. If you're a couple hours early that's fine, but you can't post at, say, 11 PM and then a second time an hour later at 12 because it's a "new day". You are, however, free to edit previous posts to add more eggs to 'em. 2. PUT ALL SPRITES BEHIND AN LJ-CUT This includes eggs, hatchlings, and 'egg incubators'. Having a page filled with sprites from a site that slows down every hour on the hour would end up having lots and lots of lag. Don't know how to make an lj-cut? Read the FAQ. Eggs with less than one day ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED OUTSIDE CUTS. 3. If you wish to show off your adult dragons, please post a link to your scroll. Do not post your adults along with your eggs and hatchlings, this makes clicking harder. 4. This should go without saying, but if you post eggs and hatchlings here to get clicks and views, you should click and view others' dragons too. 5. You may not post your scrolls, eggs, hatchlings, or links to your post containing these items in comments to other people's entries. 6. If a post to the community shows a remarkable lack of reading comprehension (ie, violates these rules), it'll probably get deleted. That's just the way it goes. 7. Only Dragcave eggs may be posted. This is not the place for sprites from other sites. 8. Please do not swear. There may be young kids posting their eggs here, so any posts or comments with swearing will be deleted. 9. No soapboxing. That means no making debate-baiting posts about sensitive topics such as abortion, politics, religion, animal rights, etc. This is NOT the place for that kind of stuff. There's a reason you have a personal journal. Anyone who makes such posts will be banned. 10. Members are expected to read and familiarize themselves with dragoncave rules and terms of service. http://dragcave.net/terms
Hint: Use HTML mode when making an entry, not RichText! Hint 2: Don't try to post using BBCode. Only HTML will work.
If you feel your posts have been wrongly deleted, or you yourself wrongly banned, please contact the mods and we'll see if we can figure something out. Do not new LJ accounts to get around bans.
Because we are an unofficial community, the restrictions at the official dragcave forums regarding questions (as in, how to get a specific type of dragon) do not apply here, but we also don't know everything. We will try to answer what questions we can about the cave, how eggs hatch, how eggs become adults, but given that official sources are mum on that info, we may be conjecturing. :) Please do not post multiple posts every day containing only questions.
Note!: If a community has the name "dragonspam" in it somewhere and is NOT listed here, then we are NOT associated with it. Chances are someone got upset and went off to make their own community by copying off us. :B
Some changes have been made to LiveJournal, and we hope you enjoy them! As we continue to improve the site on a daily basis to make your experience here better and faster, we would greatly appreciate your feedback about these changes. Please let us know what we can do for you!
