Is there any way to prevent the comments from flooding My Feed?

It may be that my phone is only old, but the browser of my samsung galaxy s2 won't show the menu or reply boxes when i click on the links anymore and the dark gray picture bug is back.

new idea :) a site where only pages from every hacker will be shown, this way you'll get an inofficial projects blog. +1 anyone?

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

jaromir.sukuba wrote 2 days ago null point

+1 (I should write ++ instead)

When I receive notification "X has updated the project titled Y", sometimes I have absolutely no idea what changed, because it looks the same as before. However, the user might changed some very important detail (correcting some tiny, but important typo) and this change is almost invisible. Honestly, I have no idea how it could be done, but highlighting (or at least listing of) the changes would be fine.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 2 days ago null point

i completely ignore these updates in my feed now.. if it really is important it should be a new changelog log.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

jaromir.sukuba wrote 2 days ago null point

Hm, option to add changelog would be nice. Just a message to be shown in followers feed. Or, possibility to exclude the change from feed. Sometimes, when correcting typos I don't want to flood the followers feeds.

Is there a way to add a check list in a project. I see there is list and table, but I would like to keep track of where I am at on a project with a checklist. Or is there another method I should try to use?

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 3 days ago 1 point

Hey willbaden, sorry we haven't got a checklist feature. Interesting idea. Thanks for bringing it up.

Would anyone else find a checklist useful? If so please let us know.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 3 days ago null point

cool feature to hold some thoughts to show that there is more planned and what was achieved until yet. I like it :)

Jeremy Lambert wrote 3 days ago null point

Todo or milestones in a treeview format would be neat.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

esot.eric.wazhung wrote 3 days ago null point

Something like that'd be cool... the whole "Is this project complete" system seems a bit limiting/presumptuous. Maybe make that more-fluid...? (but even a scale-of-completeness is still a bit presumptuous).

I don't think I'd, personally, use something *too* sophisticated, like a Gantt Chart... but Todo/Todone checklists might be handy...

Sorta-Related, it'd be nice if there was a more-reliable method for entering fixed-width ascii-type stuff; art, code, tables, as well as custom-formatted lists, etc. 80-columns should fit on dang-near any screen/window-size these days without wrapping. Couple that with the ability to add custom-fields (rather than just Description, Details, Instructions, etc.) and life might become a heck of a lot easier for the web-dev. ;) Leave the "read-more" feature, and we could make intricate tables/lists stand-out with explanations/details for those that're interested...

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

PointyOintment wrote 2 days ago null point

As a workaround, you could put Unicode checkbox symbols at the beginning of the lines of your list.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

willbaden wrote 2 days ago null point

hmmmm. . . not sure how to use this. I can find the unicode, but how do I make the project text editor recognize this.

The same thing happened to me! I accidentally made a new account and set my username on that one without realizing that I had originally logged in via Twitter.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 5 days ago null point

Hey Evan. PM me with the username and the details of the the account you'd like to keep and the one which is the duplicate.

If this has happened to anyone else, you can also PM me with those details. Cheers.

For the Hackerspaces section, I suggest using information from http://hackerspaces.org

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 6 days ago null point

Hello Nick, each of the hackerpaces pages on hackaday.io have been created by members. We're contacting more hackerspaces and inviting them to join. Hackerspaces.org is a great resource.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

[bug] [project pictures]

Some project pictures aren't showing up for me. For example, on #my very first binary-clock, the first picture shows up in All Projects and on the project page, but the 2nd to 4th images don't show up. If I point to their thumbnails, I can see them using Imagus, but they're just fully transparent on the page. This is also occurring for both images of #Ultrasonic Distance Measurement NRF905 Transmissio and the one image of #Motorcycle Garage Door Opener. Both of those also have plain gray images in All Projects, like the skull placeholder image, but just flat gray. Refreshing or closing and reopening has no apparent effect on this.

Chrome 39.0.2171.99 on OS X 10.9.5.

Also, thanks for enabling link editing in comments and feed notification for replies on unfollowed projects!

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 6 days ago null point

Chrome 39.0.2171.99 on OSX 10.8.5 - same here, basically. Gray pictures everywhere.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 6 days ago null point

I've been told that this has been fixed now. All the images seem to be there. Thanks for letting us know!

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

PointyOintment wrote 4 days ago null point

I can confirm that those are fixed. Today, though, I'm seeing more blank images in All Projects only, which never finishes loading. If I open the project pages, the images work fine there. Affected projects: everything between #IPad Mini retina screen to Oculus Rift and #Nexus 7 (2013) In-Dash Install (inclusive) as well as #Anyfesto.

[question] [usernames]

This "Get your Hackaday.io username" banner… does that just add another URL by which my profile is accessible, or does it change my username as displayed on projects and comments? Just curious; I'm planning to use the same username I'm already using.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 6 days ago null point

Your name and your username is different. Username is for the Vanity URL (Get your Hackaday Username), your name is what's displayed on the project or comments. You can change your name whenever you want. You can change your username once.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

PointyOintment wrote 5 days ago null point

Okay, that makes sense. I tried to set my username to 'i' but it gave the error message "Sorry, usernames can only contain alphanumeric characters." Isn't 'i' alphanumeric? And I did think that maybe the real problem is that it's only one character long, but 'e' is a valid username.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Alex Rich wrote 7 days ago 2 points

I vote to add a notification setting to be updated via email for changes/updates to projects I am following. For those who follow a ton of projects, it might be nice to also have the option to just get a weekly digest of project changes. Obviously this would be an opt-in setting. I say this because I have friends/family who created a projects account just to follow my project, but they don't get any updates whatsoever when I update the project (people who aren't project creators are not going to log very often to read their feed). Is this something you guys would consider?

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 6 days ago 1 point

a weekly report instead of the once in a while "you got a skull" mail would be cool. Like "you've received 5 skulls, 7followers and blabla..." and here are the links and previews to updates of the projects you are following. Leave out comments and messages maybe, because they are thought to be responded fast, unlike articles one can read later. This can all be automated and some 'maybe you're also interested in this projects' or the hacklet can be added. But than again everyone screams "but I don't want the hacklet as a mail, I've already read it on the blog and projects". Anyway +skull

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Alex Rich wrote 6 days ago null point

I like your additions. I think the option for daily updates on projects you are following would be awesome so that your project could almost act as a mini blog for those who want to follow it closely but don't necessarily look at HAD projects that often.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

jaromir.sukuba wrote 9 days ago 3 points

Not sure about the other users, but I'd like to have one account for both Hackaday projects and blog site. For commenting something at blog, I have to sign up with my old wordpress account, which I use only for this purpose. Having single account for both would be nice.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

PointyOintment wrote 6 days ago 1 point

It always used to recognize my email address and ask me to log in with my Wordpress account, but for a few months now I've been using a + extension on my email address so Wordpress doesn't recognize it. (If you're username@gmail.com, you can use username+anything@gmail.com and still receive any emails sent to it. I don't know of any other email providers that have that feature, but I'm sure they exist.) But I would like to be able to comment there with my account from here.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

What's the point of (and how on earth can one search for info on) the + thing?

https://support.google.com/mail/answer/12096

Also, you apparently can use both username@gmail.com and username@googlemail.com (as well as username+anything@googlemail.com), and do the same filtering based on that. And you can put periods anywhere in the username (user.name@gmail.com) and Gmail considers that the same address, while most other sites consider it different.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 6 days ago null point

I'd really like that too, this way when one clicks on your avatar, it could direct you to your profile on projects.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 6 days ago null point

Hey jaromir.sukuba, PointyOintment, and davedarko. It's a great idea. However, it's difficult because the blog runs on the Wordpress.com system. There doesn't seem to be a good way to integrate them at the moment.

[bug] [formatting]

Long URL doesn't wrap, resulting in the page being excessively wide: #3835. Computer Vision Dildos

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

PointyOintment wrote 9 days ago 1 point

Also, I just noticed that the new # links continue to be links even when I refresh the page partway through writing a comment and restore the comment form's contents using Lazarus. That's pretty cool.

However, when writing this comment, I noticed a bug with them: it continues to suggest projects even when I put a space after the # and continue typing the rest of the sentence.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 6 days ago null point

Hey PointyOintment, thanks for pointing those out. I've put in a ticket for each.

On those (rare?) occasions when a real-time conversation pops up in a discussion... two people might end up filling up the "Now-On" section on the hackaday blog... here's a screenshot:

http://hackaday.io/project/3821-the-jarclock-jardisplay/log/12951-did-you-realize/discussion-12652

It might be worthwhile to not drive-out everyone else's updates... Maybe it should have a bit of fuzzy-logic, e.g. "the project log has been commented on X times in the last hour by *user1*, *user2*, ..."

[bug] [my feed]

Some entries are not appearing in my feed. What I've noticed is that I'm seeing "so-and-so has updated the project log…" entries for recently added project logs for which I never saw "so-and-so has added a new project log…" entries. For some, though, I do see the latter type of entry—I haven't noticed a pattern yet. The result is that if someone adds a project log without later updating it, I might not see it.

Also, other entry types may also be missing; I haven't noticed that, but the one I have noticed not appearing seems to be the easiest to notice the lack of.

I just had an idea for the search field, it would be great if one could predefine the search by something like 'tag: midi', 'project: r2-d2' or 'hacker: Aleksandar Bradic'. Could also be indicated by -t -p and -l for the console feeling.

And why not give the stack page a counter/update number like the feed or message board to draw some attention to it.
