Spiny-tailed monitor: Lotion Anyone I don't remember what type of lizard this is, but remember seeing it at the Australian exhibit of the National Aquarium in Baltimore. I want to say it's a gecko, but the eyes look smaller than most others I've seen.

Spiny-tailed monitor: Lotion Anyone

  1. Thanks for your first upload, Jorge. Looks like a lazy little bummer :)

    Don't forget to try to title and tag your photos.

  2. Ferdy, any plan to quick offer a notification system to allow users to see there has been activity on their pics, etc? I know you see this by visiting Your Profile, but was wondering if there was a way to see it quickly when you first hit the page and are logged in. Posted 8 years ago
    1. By coincidence I was thinking of that yesterday. As I am using my own creation I find it uneasy to find out who voted, commented, etc. I'm thinking of an email notification system for this, will take me a few weeks.

      Thanks for the feedback!

      1. I would have thought an RSS feed based on the content of your user page would work better. Posted 8 years ago
        1. Currently the content of your user page depends on whether you are signed in or not. When not signed in, you see only the active events on the users profile, when logged in and visiting your own profile, you also see the passive events (others commenting, voting, favoriting your stuff).

          There is an RSS feed per user now but it will not give you the personal passive events, since that requires authentication.

          I hope that explanation is not too confusing :)

  3. That looks like the most relaxed reptile I've ever seen! He looks as happy as the little dragon image at the bottom of this page! :) Posted 8 years ago
