Near the end of the HAD prize cutoff, the blog ran a "you still have time to enter" article. This meant that anyone who wanted to enter the contest had to make an assistive technology project
If you do this again next year, consider putting the "anything goes" round at the end. That would seem to be the best position to catch people that are slow in entering, late, or don't find out about the contest until late in the season.
I will say again that I think this year's prize has hit very high marks. Money prizes instead of swag, lots of smaller interim awards, and multiple categories with three "catch-all" categories makes this years contest a lot more inclusive and exciting.
Are you sure? yes | no
Yet another blunder :-DSo far I have 45 projects. OK.But a mouseover on my profile link (in comment sections) says I have 47 !
I made a screenshot but don't know how to include it in comments.
I usually add a quick project log for uploading the image. While still in the editor, I copy the URL of the image into the comment.
After posting the comment, I quit the project log edit without saving.
I imagined such a kludge but...nooooo....
See it works. :)
I'll just say "I have ethics" :-POK, let's add this request : add pictures to comments ? like, use the same editor as for the logs ? I wonder why it's still not possible or done !
I started a separate project called "potpourri" for that very purpose. I can upload images to build logs there and then post links to other parts of this site, and to comments on the HAD blog.
Github is also very easy to use and easy to upload images to.
I don't know if/how HaD removes "orphan" pictures from their CDN...
It would be far better to allow pictures directly in comments :-D but this does not address the blunder that motivated the original post.
I now have 46 projects and there is still an off-by-two, two phantom projects are added on the mouse-over label...One explanation might be that I transmitted one project to @al1 (the #PICTIL) but what about the 2nd phantom project ? o_OI hope that the HaD developers don't try to design electronic voting devices :-D
I noticed there is some new "clutter" in my personnal message inbox. There are topics based on some of my projects, with no actual messages and no other persons than myself, just with "This space feels empty. Why don't you invite some people to collaborate with you?" text. What's the deal with this one?
that's the project chat stuff, you have that for every project of yours since the beginning of the project chats :)
I would swear it wasn't there few days ago. I haven't started the chat anyway and there are no other people I could chat with. What is the point of empty chat that nobody started?
no idea, but it was probably easier to just open them by default / foreach(projects) show_chat() or something. You could use it for private notes? I don't know. I don't see them anyways.
scoring the lucky number.
I wonder if there'll be any celebration when we get to 2¹⁶?
Hello. The latest project that I uploaded doesn't show the number of views. Only the number of likes and followers.
Hi Julio, view count starts counting from 50 views.
I see... Thanks for your reply!
kudos to the designer of the 'PROJECTS YOU MAY LIKE' it looks very clean and I like that it shows a lot more than two projects!
I must admit it is useful feature, too. Thumbs up for developers.
the automatic link detection thing doesn't automatically link detect this link ⡱⢎.io :(
Is there any way of showing line numbers in a code snippets? it would make life much easier when trying to describe the operation of a snippet. it looks like the underlying plugin (codemirror plugin for redactor ?) might have the capability but there's no interface to switch it on (that I can find, anyway).
Last night I had a bug where I updated the project details and a bunch of text and images disappeared entirely as if they were deleted, some sections also got duplicated. Luckily I had a backup of all my writing but if I didn't I would have lost a ton of work. You should definitely look into this.
Can you please send me the link?
Trouble replacing a file with a file of the same filename
I tried replacing a file in a project profile with an updated version of the file with the same filename, but the old file seemed to persist. So, I deleted the old file and added the new file with the same filename, but the old file seemed to persist. Ultimately, I deleted the old file and added the new file using a different filename, and that worked. Throughout the above, I reloaded the pages in my web browser to try to rule out the possibility of the old file being cached by my web browser.
Thanks for the feedback.
Two projects that I *know* are vying for the contest don't have videos showing in their project page. I hope they got the E-mail and figured out that there is a new field in the project for it.
How to get the video link on the sidebar wasn't explicit in the E-mail, and it's not spelled out in the "Details" or "Rules" pages either.
I hope HAD will be understanding if people have videos posted in their "links" section, but not the official "Prize Video" section.
(Both projects mentioned are from non-US people who are probably ESL.)
@Peter Walsh can you send me the links to those projects please?
I PM'd both parties and left messages, and they both responded so we're all good.
I just wanted to point out that it wasn't obvious to me from the E-mail, and I had to dig around to discover how to do it. Next year, consider putting this on the Details page.
The projects were:
Difficult to read Components description (grey text colour)
I find it difficult to read and edit the descriptions of components in a project because of the dark grey text on the black background. It would be great if this can be changed to lighter grey!
Thank you for your suggestion, ticket has been written...
I am having the same issue!
the skull is a logo. It says something and means something. this seems to be a not very well thought out attempt at a "logo" but lost its' way.
Someone may have already mentioned this ( tried looking, though ). But, I think there should be an option to remove conversations from "Private Messages"! If that option already exists somewhere, it would be nice to have that option next to the "New Message" button, or something!
Feature request: I know its a bit old school, but it would be really nice to have my personal feed as RSS. Would help me keep more up-to-date on what I'm following.
Seconded! An RSS feed would be swell!
There is rss for the global feed. I suppose you could filter it.
I've just wrote a "Wish List" ticket.
More than the logo, the 'skull' was an unique method of show appreciation for some project. A skull was a like with quality assurance, lol! I mean, _I Like_ most of the projects I see here but only give a skull to the projects or ideas that deserve a highlight, either by ingenuity or by the hard labor spent on the project or even both. That is what I mean when I say we lost identity without the Skull and the idea behind it. Maybe the original intent for the skull was to be a 'Like' but hey we're hackers here! We hacked the "facebook alike" concept and turned them into something more powerful, more useful. Something ours!! So please bring back the jolly wrencher and the skulls!Bones!!!!
Today is a sad day. We've lost the skull. We've lost the jolly wrencher.
2016-10-06, never forget
Totally agree... we've lost identity.
As long as they don't push Farmvielle on us...
wait, what'd I miss...? My "give a skull" button turned into "like" a long time ago, was surprised I didn't hear anyone complaining back then. did something else change, too?
When I click on a project's "Join this project's team" button, it shows a popup that says I submit the project to the HaD prize...
Can you please send me a link?
I sent it to you as a private message. Good luck :-)
Text editor is annoying to use. Sometimes, when I delete a word while typing, and continue typing, suddenly the space (which was there) disappears and the word I'm typing is merged to previous word. I have to go back and add a space in between them. Unfortunately I cannot reliably reproduce the issue. I'm using Firefox 48.
Is that still an issue?
Yes problem persists. I've encountered the problem while writing this comment :)
Just to let you know, I dislike the .IO website icon (hackaday.io/favicon.ico). It looks like a tic-tac-toe grid and is not descriptive of the site, the outline box makes it stick out-and not in a good way (everyone else's favicon integrates smoothly), and using fixed white instead of transparent (to let the browser background color shine through) makes it stick out even more.
It is reminiscent of a browser-supplied default icon, for when the website doesn't supply one.
It looks awful, and it doesn't describe the site.
For comparison check out the icons for twitter, PCMag, or Hackaday.com
Great point! This should be fixed tomorrow.
