Hi,

I received one of those "time to officially submit your project" emails, regarding this project -  https://hackaday.io/project/1071-the-hydra-multiheaded-virtual-computer

which is not a project I am in any way affiliated with.

looks like this is a common issue, just letting you know.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Thanks for letting us know. I think we've resent the email with the correct details now. Have a great weekend.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Bug: I'm the owner of "Improve the Bosch-Haber Process", project 1646.

I just got the E-mail announcement "tagged 2015HackadayPrize but has not yet been officially submitted", but for someone *else's* project.

In fact, my project *is* submitted, so I have to assume that the owner of the project my E-mail refers to has not received his E-mail.

His project is: https://hackaday.io/project/1071-the-hydra-multiheaded-virtual-computer

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

alpha_ninja wrote 2 days ago point

Same thing for me.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 2 days ago point

I think there was a hitch, so you may get another email, but probably not if you have already officially submitted. Thanks for letting us know though. 

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Peter Walsh wrote 2 days ago point

Mike said he fixed it and resent, and I didn't get the new version so I assume it's straightened out.

I have registered with username/password, but I want to login with github account. Is that possible anymore?

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 2 days ago point

Hello Tero. I'm afraid you have to sign in via the same method you signed up originally. If you use your github account to login it will create another account on hackaday.io. Let me know if you need more info. 

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Tero wrote 2 days ago point

ok. maybe someday in future then ^^

Would be cool to make "added contributor" an option for the feed settings.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 2 days ago 1 point

Yes, it would. I'll make a note. 

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

the stacks input process keeps mangling the url:

very interesting...

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 3 days ago point

Thanks for letting us know. We'll look into it.

ul.submissions-icons is too large when inside of div.section-skull-and-like-projects, taking up more space than the actual `li.submission-icon`s. This makes it hard to click on the actual project. 

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

josephvoss wrote 5 days ago point

A lot of projects are full of spelling errors which distract from their content. Is it possible to add a basic spell checker to the text editor?

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 4 days ago 1 point

Don't spell checker come with everything now? With browsers and operating systems? 

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 3 days ago point

We are unlikely to add a spell checker to the editor, as people tend to prefer to use the one on their browser. Thanks. 

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 5 days ago point

Hm, I don't think the feed update counter counts according to the feed settings.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 5 days ago 1 point

We'll look into it. Thanks.

The user menu (your icon in the menubar) is nearly impossible to find for users without avatars. How about you add an icon as a fallback?

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 6 days ago point

The default icon is a little subdued. I've added this to our list of improvements. Thanks

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

alpha_ninja wrote 4 days ago point

Also, maybe it would be nice not to use gravatar (which seems to be used only for default icons.)

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

alpha_ninja wrote 7 days ago 1 point

I'd recommend you using different `name`s for the sign up, delete account, and change password views. Due to autofill, the current state could confuse users, cause them to accidentally delete their account or allow someone to easily change their password.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 6 days ago point

I've passed this on to our devs. Cheers.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

alpha_ninja wrote 7 days ago point

For project logs:

Putting a read more tag anywhere in a list will result in the following logs showing up as list elements in that list.

That's a really annoying bug. We'll get it fixed soon. Thanks for reporting it.

A bunch of time travelers on the message board lately - when someone writes a messages it says "in an hour" for the time when it was written. At least for me. In Germany (greenwich +1 and summertime).

Funky Link at the HaD Blog's "Now On .io" for project 114 #I/O Pin Testing & Observing

In the Now On .io feed the link URL is:

John Schuch wrote 10 days ago 2 points

I just came across the dildo project ( https://hackaday.io/project/3834-electric-carving-knife-hack ). There isn't much that offends me personally, and this project doesn't. But ... With content like this, HaD will end up being a site I would/could never suggest young makers/students visit. Unfortunate.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 9 days ago 2 points

Hello John, 

We don't really censor members projects, especially when they are essentially harmless, but do understand that it's not what everyone wants to see especially if you are browsing the site with kids or at work. With this in mind, we are going to implement a not-safe-for-work filter, but it's not ready yet. 

We do want to encourage the next generation of hackers and tinkerers, so we are please that you want to share with younger makers/students. However, the site is not intended for children, so please use your best judgement when deciding to share. I'm sure you've noticed, sex toys aside, there are other projects on the site which are actually dangerous, some with instructions (guns, cannons, fire, plasma etc.). 

We do want to grow the community to have a health diversity, and are really pleased to see projects like yours on hackaday.io. Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

counter.culture wrote 9 days ago 1 point

I know you don't want any more input on this (why can't we all just get along?), but as a huge fan of freedom of speech and the marketplace of ideas, I feel the need to pipe up...

- as you know, the occurrence of this type of project is *extremely* rare.

- unless a parental figure has been inappropriate toward a child, or they saw this on TV (which again points back to the parent), they shouldn't even know what that item is.

- it seems the victorian era never ended over here - and what's worse is the bottomless pit of hypocrisy that people like mr. schuch like to laddle from.  sex is natural, and in and of itself is not evil...killing people in phony wars is.

Thank you for being logical and having a censorship-free point of view.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

John Schuch wrote 9 days ago 1 point

Thanks for the reply Jasmine, a NFSW filter would surely be a good idea. 

I know you folks are short on staff and long ideas, but maybe something for the 'someday file' would be the opposite of an NSFW tag. Something indicating a project is totally appropriate for the newest of newcomers to the community. Granted, subjective assessments are always problematic, but I would think a basic metric could be worked out. You said "We do want to encourage the next generation of hackers and tinkerers".  Yes, Yes you should. :-)

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

John Schuch wrote 9 days ago -1 point

I won't be trolled.  And you should look up the definition of "hypocrisy".

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 11 days ago 1 point

- with all the laser pointer advertisements I lost track which I've already reported, would be cool to have a "you've already done that" hint

- the menu button doesn't work on the message page (but I guess you know that already)

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

frankstripod wrote 11 days ago point

Nice idea.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 11 days ago 1 point

Hey Dave, It should already say that you've reported them and not let you do it again. I hadn't noticed the menu button not working on the mobile message page. I'll put in a ticket for that. Thanks.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 11 days ago point

i guess i was too lazy to press the link to see this :D sorry. Thank you for the reply :)

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 11 days ago point

it even stands there - maybe I was blinded seeing all those lasers.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 11 days ago point

I think it does it for comments, profiles, and project reporting; but if you notice it doesn't, do let me know. Cheers. 

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Adam Fabio wrote 11 days ago 1 point

same here Dave - the laser mfgrs are firing at us big time.

It would be great if there was an official application to check things, edit, read, and create more projects on the go.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Jasmine wrote 10 days ago point

Hey Alex, we're working to make hackaday.io better for mobile, and there will be more possibilities with the API coming out soon. A mobile app would be great though. Thanks.

Alex Vear wrote 10 days ago point

Okay thanks a lot.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Would be cool to have something like "email notification off" for group conversations - may also be global and not for each separately.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Aleksandar Bradic wrote 12 days ago 2 points

Hey Dave,

We're working on the ability to separately disable notifications for group conversation. It should be live next week.

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 12 days ago point

cool :)

haydn jones wrote 12 days ago 2 points

A few things, that may have already been covered.

I can't read messages on my phone web browser (chrome) everything overlaps. Not sure if this is a layout issue, or just my phone.

I recently noticed that full resolution images are used and then scaled in browser. I usually have a poor connection, so some pages are taking a while to load. Can you scale on the server side (if only to one set resolution)?

Lastly, i use the global feed, and noticed a lot of spam accounts for meds, hotels and possibly non existent products, can you add a flag button?

Thanks H :)

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

davedarko wrote 12 days ago 1 point

There is a "report as inappropriate" link on the left bottom on most of the pages. Weird findings. 

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]

Peter Walsh wrote 13 days ago 1 point

Bug: When I replace an image in a build log, the operation deletes the 1st character of the post text.

To reproduce: Make a build log with text and an inline image and save. Edit the build log. Select the image and press "delete" - the cursor deletes the image, jumps to the beginning of the text block, deletes the 1st character of text, then jumps back to where the image was.

(I sometimes edit my build log images locally and then go to replace the published one. Deleting the existing image prior to uploading the new one triggers the bug.)

Are you sure? [yes] / [no]
