In order to follow projects & hackers or give skulls
you need to create an account.
Maybe a bug? When I search for a tag that I have attached to my project, I do not get it listed in the search reply. Example - http://hackaday.com/tag/wood-stove/ does not show the projects:
Are you sure? yes | no
The "stack" section seems to be filling up with links to EE articles (and no content), which means that people are using it as a marketing outlet. I was wondering if this is OK, or if HAD should maybe try to prevent this.
I follow the stack and try to answer questions for people and otherwise interact, but if it's just a bunch of links to articles, well... I can find those on my own. It's like getting a free copy of EE news in the mail - it goes right into the dumpster.
Interacting with people and being able to ask questions is a nice feature.
There are several stack posts by "gopi kokkonda", who has no projects and isn't following anyone, only makes stack entries such as "Wireless Microcontrollers Enable the Smart Home" (with no content, only a link to the DigiKey article), and his user description is "I help entrepreneurs double their ROI by solving their tech & marketing challenges."
Really. The signal-to-noise feature of stack will become so low that no one will look at it.
Being able to ask questions is a *really* nice feature, please don't let it get polluted with marketing droids.
is Is there an option to get email updates for selected projects?
Some of my project followers don't visit the site very often but would appreciate an email when I update, much like the "feed" in a digest format once a day or week
This is a great idea. Unfortunately, it's not something that we can offer at the moment. I'll suggest it to the team.
Awesome, I would appreciate it. Even an opt-in per project would be useful.
I'd love to see any kind of response to reported projects, as I'm unsure whether anybody looks at it. I reported obvious bullshits, like https://hackaday.io/project/9387-nanotechnology-father-of-superconductors (author of the projects submitted more crap like this, just take a look) or https://hackaday.io/project/9416-robotics-startup-is-looking-for-seed-investments and this one, which is really awesome https://hackaday.io/project/9389-deejay-jaunty-images
I'm not saying like all stupid "projects" should be deleted, but those ones are really outstanding.
Hello Jaromir, we do get the reports. We have a very relaxed moderation for most of the content on the site, and these projects don't contravene our TOS. If enough people report them, then they will automatically be removed. So thanks for reporting them!
Hello, I noticed that there is a small placement error in the components list when the quantities are set unreasonably high. At the maximum qty value, the digits overrun where the 'X' is.
Thanks for letting us know! We'll make a ticket.
If I follow a project (like the adafruit pi zero contest) please don't spam my feed with all the other people who also followed that project!
I may want the feed to show who followed _my_ projects though!
But you share an interest... Maybe if you're lacking the passion to enjoy those who share an interest with you... you... should not take part in it?
It would be like printing the names and passport photo of everyone who subscribes to a Linux magazine in the front of each issue of the magazine. It really doesn't tell me anything useful or help me to share my interest.
You can still see who else follows a project by going into that project, and flooding the feed like that means I'll miss comments and updates on a project I've followed, which is the actual content I'm interested in and is more likely to make me get engaged and contribute myself.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensory_overload - but what about too much of something, so that you can't see the more important stuff?
Let us not forget what an interpreter is and does https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophy_of_computer_science
Hey jacksonliam, we are changing this. Thanks for the feedback.
I found a small bug/typo when submitting to the Adafruit Pi Zero Contest. It still says it's the Trinket Everyday Carry contest in the dialog box: https://imgur.com/9m18Pju
Thanks. We'll update that.
Hello, has anyone had a chance to play with the productivity app Asana? www.asana.com The way it associates chatrooms with objects seems like an ideal place to start with enforcing more productive conversations with chats. The way it functions is inherently declarative by the way things are related to one another. Conversations about tasks are framed around reminders of the task at hand. It is quite intuitive.
Sorry, it would be great if the chat on here were implemented somewhat like that.
http://nautil.us/issue/27/dark-matter/why-we-cant-get-over-ourselves The whole series has been very well put together from what I've seen. It may be worth extrapolating a plan to mine some data pertaining to the theories expressed in this series to better analyze ways of improving hackaday.io. With data we can predicate a set of good reasons to change hackaday.io for the better.
http://nautil.us/issue/32/space/the-bugs-in-our-mindware-rp specifically this one stands out as being useful.
I found what feels like a bug.... Steps to Reproduce:- In a new project update, start typing an unordered list,- Use tab key to indent the list, and continue typing up list.- Unindent using Shift+Tab, and continue typing up list.
Expected result: List should be continuous, consistently indented spaced.
Actual result: Shift-tab doesn't consistently remove indentation, odd spacing between lines generated, main remedy is to just type up the list, and then indent as needed.
Browser: Firefox 43.0.4 (soon to be updated to 44.0) with addons: Adblock Plus, Disconnect, DownThemAll!, Easy Screenshot, Ghostery, JSONView, LastPass, (disabled Skype)
Can it be recreated: Not sure. Shift-Tab definitely fails consistently, but I'm not sure it always fails in the same way...
Requesting an "ignore user" function for certain users that post a lot of projects with, like, no content.
+1 Also options for (feed) ignore by tags, keywords, titles etc.
video link windows so small in project logs. images are way bigger. is there some markup to change the default size ?
I followed the https://hackaday.io/contest/9326-adafruit-pi-zero-contest and now my feed is flooded by XXX followed the contest messages.
For other items, some kind of grouping is employed, I'm missing this feature here.
We'll get this sorted. Thanks for letting us know!
So I'm still getting emails when people reply to my stuff, even though my subscription preferences are all off. I've been reporting it for literally a year, gonna go change my profile's email to one I don't check, now
Can you PM me with the email address that it's going to? Thanks!
Any easy way to paste table data? The only way I've found atm is to use an online ascii table generator and paste it in a code block.
I have a project idea but I don't have the knowledge to see if it is feasible or making any sense. So I need someone who can give me a feedback on it.
Hey Bernard, you can start a project on hackaday.io with just an idea. Outline what you want to do, and what you'd like help with. Say you would like collaborators. If you really think it is too early to start a project page, you can also post to hackaday.io/stack. Good luck!
I can't find the feed settings anymore.
We don't have them since the last feed update.
That's unfortunate :D now I can't disable event followers in my feed. I think nobody cares about that anyway, so quick fix == just take it out of the personal feed?Here's an updated version of my 'feed cleaner' JS script, for those reading along. https://hackaday.io/page/1113-contest-follower-update-my-current-hackadayio-feed-cleaner
I have created a project that went to limbo! I can not edit, the [Edit Project] link does not appear. Ironically the project is named #Oh Cheat!
Did you already try logging out and back in?
Yeah. Did not work unfortunately. Tried also to log in from another browser. The same happens. The project is stucked.
Did you try turning it off and then turning it back on? ;)
I have created the project again and now it is working. Thanks
Just created another project with the same name. Now I have literally a ghost project.
I've hidden the ghost project.
Thanks! Can't you delete it?
I see both projects on the "projects" page... I hope you can solve this :-)
Your email link are broken -
The links look like this - http://hackaday.com/2016/01/20/a-linear-time-sorting-algorithm-for-fpgas#comment-2891816
My email client strips the anchor and everything after like this - http://hackaday.com/2016/01/20/a-linear-time-sorting-algorithm-for-fpgas
So when the page opens - it opens at the top and I don't know which comment is new.
This happening because the original link is not technically a correct URL.
It should be - http://hackaday.com/2016/01/20/a-linear-time-sorting-algorithm-for-fpgas/#comment-2891816
with a "/" before the "#" so that the URI contains a correct URL. ie URL must end in "/"
