comment Word for sudden feeling of tiredness and wanting to sleep
I don't think the sense used in your example is the same. The sense in your example is a generic term for "sleep" which is what we mean when we say, "Can I crash at your place?" or "We can't go over this late, his sister is crashing on his couch." However, a "crash" is also what you experience when your energy level suddenly plummets, and you're left struggling to stay awake. Especially used when a stimulant wears off, or after an all-nighter when your second-wind is coming quickly to an end. ex: "I thought I was fine when I drove to campus, but I started crashing hard once lecture started."

comment small sense of joy/novelty from shared (http) links
@FumbleFingers No, though a page about an easter egg, or a video of someone finding an easter egg, could easily be one of the sorts of links exchanged.

@KristinaLopez I agree that they are different. I suspect it was the emotion of the receiver--but having gone a few years without seeing the word (or its definition) it is hard for me to state certainly that the word didn't describe the sender's emotion, or more broadly the exchange in which the receiver is experiencing a small joy and the sender is experiencing a small validation from the receiver's joy.

@TylerJamesYoung I suspect it is similar to the thoughtful words neologized in the DoOS, aside from not describing a sorrow.

@FumbleFingers The specifics are a little distant to me now; the term may have merely indicated the experience of the recipient. The term was repurposed/neologized to describe a largely online phenomena. We don't generally send our friends 20 real artifacts a day, and I suspect the joy/novelty/excitement they experienced would be more significant (at receiving an object) than the small/passing sensation in response to what we find at the other end of a link.

comment What is a word that could define someone who likes to cause conflict?
While there are a number of good answers laid out already (and a few not yet mentioned), I think the 'right' answer depends on the motivations, or at least the perceived motivations of the person doing so. (i.e. does the person do this habitually, for entertainment, is it personal, etc.); there are enough possibilities that the specifics may influence the color of the best-fit word.
