• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    Emotional Needs

    So, according to Willard F. Harley (this marriage counsellor guy), every person has something that Harley calls a "love bank". When you make "deposits" in someone's love bank (like complimenting them, hugging them, giving them cookies, whatever), they love you more. You can also make withdrawals...

    Math Thread

    Look, a math thread! So, what do you think of math? Are you good at it? What's your favourite (or least favourite) kind of math? What math did you do last? Pi or tau? (hint: pick tau.) I'm really interested in recreational math! So like, hexaflexagons, drawing infinity elephants, chicken...

    I've been told a lot that I have a good singing voice, but I've also picked up a lot of really bad habits. So, what are some ideas for singing well? What kinds of things should you not do while singing? I try every so often to Google different things about singing, but I never really get much of...

    Okay, so, guys, what is this nonsense? This is a .txt file for a computer application called a Shimeji, a form of desktop buddy that's super customizable. I want to know what it is, and what I can do about it. I figured out how to edit the xml files in a useful way, but the one menu text...

    Save Points

    Sometimes there are save points, and sometimes you can just go into the menu at any time and click the diary button. I guess the type depends on the game. For the Mario games, as the developer stated in an interview, the lack of saves points removes the frustration of playing the same part...

    Multilingual Psychology

    I know one language and I am kind of under the impression that there are several people on this forum that know more than one language, so here I am! Basically, if you're speaking a language that is not your first language for a long time, do you find yourself defaulting to your mother tongue...

    Coding Evolution

    I want to create a game about things evolving into other things. Originally the whole piece of art was going to change, but that ended up being upwards of two hundred images and I never made much headway. Eventually I got the idea that everything could use a set of bases, and then just a few...

    Vanity Publishing

    Is it called vanity publishing? Maybe it's called vanity publishing. I don't have anything in particular I want just now, but it would be nice to be able to own a copy of my writing or drawings. I just want to send the format to some company, and they'll put it in a pretty book and mail it to...

    Pre-Pokeball Shiny

    My sister started her Heart Gold game, and the very first Pokemon she saw was a shiny Pidgey. In my Soul Silver game, shiny Weedle wasn't the first, but it was still before I had Pokeballs. My mom says she's seen people complain about seeing shinies in the very beginning. We're planning to use...

    PHP Variables to Evolve Eevee

    tl;dr - how can I make eevee evolve on all existing pages conditionally? Okay, I got all the styles on the Eevee game up and working and it's awesome and my little sister is pretty ecstatic about it (she comments on how great PHP styleswitchers are every time she plays with it now). But...

    PHP + CSS

    Okay, I'm building some stylesheets for my Eevee game now that my files are back. (ETA: I'm using CSS stylesheets, PHP includes, and a PHP styleswitcher, by the way) In this game, you take care of an Eevee. There's a navigation bar somewhere on the page (location depends on which style), which...
