Yeah, I know that. That's why I moved them. It just irks me to hear that it's "the people with dragons in their signatures that are causing all the problems" .... It all depends on where you keep the little buggers.

True... we should say people that have a link to dragcave.net in their sigs. That said of course that since you have static ones you aren't really playing the game any more... you aren't getting eggs that hatch and grow as you get hits.

See if you see an difference after you do that.

Will do that. Thanks.

Um... well I don't see it... so it is being served from dragcave.net... so I would say no. What URL do you have in your signature that creates your dragon?

Bob, if you right click on the image and select "copy image location", you'll get:

Ok, but is that the same URL in EVERY one of Kris posts? Because the way dragcave.net works is that each user has a personal URL... when you request that URL dragcave.net counts your hit, matures your "eggs/dragons", generates the images and redirects to that url.

This is how the dragons/eggs mature. so, if you look at that message in two weeks there might be different images because the dragon(s) have grown. The whole system is designed so that the images will NOT be cached by browsers.

That image link is specifically for the dragon "2HU9". It's in every post (that has her sig).

Oh, and the images are cached. Whenever I expose a hidden dragon I have to go clear my cache before I can see it.

Perhaps they are using consistent URLs then. I haven't really investigated it to deeply. But, I do know once I block that site I almost NEVER see a slow down rendering an MR page now.

I did the same today after having waited 1 minute twice for a page containging postings by Nate the great to be loaded. Maybe the blocking information should be given to new members and be placed in a FAQ.

The way I work around it is, if the thing seems to be hanging, I click on the "Stop" option on the browser, and it goes right to the place i want to be at. I prefer not to turn off siggies, because they are fun. The dragons got a bit boring after a while, but i can't see banning them when there is a way around it that works okay.
