Is summon woodland beings (pixies) broken?

As a DM I want to be fair and not just never allow a druid the chance of summoning pixies, but it seems so broken. At one point I had four PC’s and two NPC’s all running about as dinosaurs. I’m hoping it’s not too broad of a question asking for ideas to balance this type of encounter.

Also the players felt the pixies could fly off and not be required to stay near the fight to maintain the spell. PHB states polymorph can be cast 60ft away but does not seem to address distance to maintain the spell.

Can DNS-over-HTTPS be broken by reverse DNS lookups? [duplicate]

This question already has an answer here:

  • How does DoH protect against ISP tracking? 1 answer
  • Why use DNS over TLS/HTTPS if ISP could find out target domain by other means? 2 answers

If anyone can see the receiver IP address in a HTTPS request, what will stop ISPs from analysing the packet, reverse DNS lookup the IP and block the access to the domain the client is trying to reach. Is this possible and if yes how much would it slow down traffic?

This is a followup question to Will HTTPS expose the IP address of the receiver?

Is the Circle of the Moon Druid incredibly broken? [on hold]

So maybe I’m reading this wrong, but my moon druid just hit level 20 and the ability seems completely over the top compared to other classes level 20 feature. Unlimited beast shapes? Am I interpreting this incorrectly? Can I really just turn into animals or even elementals (Level 10 Elemental Wild shape) AND EVEN CAST SPELLS (Level 18 Beast spell) ?? My DM for this game hates this and is trying to limit my uses to 10 per long rest, which is fine, but without this homebrew rule in place can I just make myself a meat shield and keep beast shaping into something with massive HP (e.g A giant crocodile) or even an Earth elemental every time I pop?

Sharepoint Unique Permission Subfolder broken

I have library with the following tree structure.

Library > Folder 1 > SubFolder A > Files

All folders and subfolders have unique permissions. All files have unique permissions. All folders and subfolders have the same groups as the library, but if I delete a specific group from the library, the group gets deleted from the folders, subfolders, and files. ¿How can I delete a group from the library, without deleting it from the files and folders?

SharePoint 2010 show subsites dropdown menu link broken

enter image description here

I have a main site (Planning) that has the “Show subsites” option enabled in the navigation settings. All the links work correctly except for one of the subsites comes up with a “website cannot be found”, “http 404”. However, if I click on the parent site and select all site content, the link under sites and workspaces works just fine. I do notice the link on the drop down menu has /sitepages/home.aspx after the subsite name, versus the link under sites and workspaces ends with just the subsite name. Is there a way I can manually edit the dropdown menu link to match the sites and workspaces link? I’ve been through all the settings and still can’t find anything that will allow this. Thank you in advance!

Haunted Heroes Pact Wizard may cause a favored spell combo to be even more broken?

I’ve been looking at the Pact Wizard archetype from Haunted Heroes Handbook and noticed a feature they pick up at 10th level that states that when metamagic feats are applied to spells learned via patron or curse, the spells are treated with a spell of one level lower with a minimum level equal to the spell’s original level).

Here’s where the problem comes in. A few patrons give Time Stop as their bonus patron spell at level 18. The spell already specifies 1d4+1 rounds for how long the spell lasts. 2 to 5 rounds is pretty crazy already. The metamagic feat that could make this spell completely broken is Extend Spell. +1 to the spell’s level, and with the aforementioned class feature, 4 to 10 rounds could get that kind of spell banned from a game table.

It goes from bad to worse when Delayed Blast Fireball comes into play. Lots of players like spamming Grease to keep opponents at bay and make them easier to hit. When you have 4 to 10 rounds to charge up that fire bomb, your GM could very well ban you from using Extend Spell in that manner.

So to elaborate on the question: does the feature even work that way for Time Stop? Or does the extend only apply to the base +1 to make a +2 and then you roll? For the sake of balance, I hope it’s the latter.

OneHourIndexing API broken since last few patches

I wanted to make this post to bring to your attention that OHI has been broken since the patch where the indexer settings was changed around 9/4 – 9/6.  Right now I am getting the error “sending links to One Hour Indexing batch name can’t be blank,and it shows that it is not sending any links to the OHI API.  There is also another problem in the indexer tab, it does not let us set it to send more than 9999 links per day to the OHI API whereas before the change I was able to send as many as I wanted to.

Any ideas ?
