Sometimes the feed does something funky with nesting... Every once in a while the items which should be "top-level" wind-up nested within a previous top-level item. Would seem like a minor annoyance...
(Update: Reloading, a bit later, and it's still doing it)
Are you sure? yes | no
I have seen this too...
Howdy @esot.eric! Thanks for letting us know! We'll make a ticket.
Thank you, kindly, Dusan!
Can we have filters for my/global feed? Sometimes I want to see "what happening" outside my feed, so I click the global feed and it's totally polluted by "XXX updated their profile" logs.
Here's a weird one for you.
I was reading the .io site below (not one of mine) and noticed that character pairs "fi" were replaced by ﬂ, which is a slightly boldened version of the "ﬂ" ligature represented by the HTML character (ampersand)#xFB02(semicolon).
(For example, search his page for the string "of the muscle ﬁbres. For very ﬁne low force")
The ligatures appear in the flow of his text, I suspect he's not actually typing these every time he enters words beginning "fl". He's from England, so I don't expect that it's an unusual keyboard layout. The ligature is not a standard character on the UK or international keyboard layout (according to Wikipedia). Typing "flow" using the ligature would provoke a spell-check red underlining on my version of Chrome.
Something seems to be replacing the characters... is it the Hackaday.io system?
P.S. - This happens in both Chrome and FF, and comes up in "view->source", so it's not an aspect of the browser.
good catch, but it's seems that it's copied from somewhere, hackaday.io don't replace those characters. eg. "similar to the ﬂow of electrical" text on the same page is not replaced.
A bug in Firefox Desktop and apparently also on Firefox Mobile:In the chat, if you mention someone with @ and you choose the user by clicking on them in the list instead of pressing enter. All text typed after that mention still resides in the <a> element that gets created for the mention, which causes it to also get styled in gold. What should actually happen is that the focus of the cursor should go back to the parent <p> element so you don't continue to write in that <a> element.
Also there sometimes a weird bug that when I press backspace, my cursor gets moved to the beginning of the text box. I'm so far unable to reliably reproduce the issue. This happens also outside of the chat.
The backspace thing appears when writing project logs too. It happens all the time when I drag picture into log, start sentence under the picture, then correct word in the sentence using backspace, the cursor moves to beginning of the log. After starting new paragraph with Enter key, cursor is no longer jumping to beginning - unless I enter new picture.
Hi @Professor Fartsparkles bug is confirmed. Thanks for the feedback!
I'd like to have an site appearance setting to change theme. white lettering on black background is very hard for me to read. also. I'd like to have less photographs displayed for "projects" and "lists". scannable lists (mostly textual) are my preference. scrolling to locate is annoying for me. thanks!
Hey Eric - these are some good points. Adding to the queue. Thanks!
you have some bug with github authentification (gets into some infinite loop, need to manually back to the site)
Are you still seeing this issue? We're not able to reproduce this on our end. Thanks!
right now logged in correctly.. may be was something on github side.. sorry)
i'd like to see a featue where users can have their own lists of projects, even if it is to catogorize their liked/made projects. :)
I now have so many projects that I consider making yet another project to list and categorize mine... Not sure if it should be a project or if I should write a page...Maybe profiles could have a "details" like projects do ?
Need something like a sub directory to organize things. :)
could I (/we) get a line-through style thingy for text so we can cross off stuff from lists and feel good about it? please? :) :) ;) :)
They disabled its removal from HTML-view... so you just click the HTML-view button, and add '<s>' and '</s>' around it. Yeah, definitely nice to have.
nice hack but hard to do on a cell phone ;)
This is a great one. Added to the queue.

Ah, there it is, thanks. Every time i looked I thought it was just my projects, my wife accuses me of only seeing what I expect to see.
I logged into my account to find that I was following 57 people and a 18 or so projects that I've never looked at before.
I can't see project photos anymore. They're cropped! It's horrible!
The old layout wasn't that good, but this is just plain worse.
Which project photos are an issue? I don't think there have been any big layout updates recently.
All projects, including this one. Although they sneakily added a wide gray border around this photo so it still looks good when cropped. And I haven't been here in a few months, so the update might not be 'recent'.
there are "following" and "liked" buttons on my projects in my feed list :) I can't press them, but I was tempted enough to try.
Thanks, you're right they shouldn't be visible on your own stuff.
What is the recommended method ?
re-write in assembly :-)
Where are you uploading them? I've uploaded .js files to the file storage area
I added you to the #Game of Life bit-parallel algorithm project so you can try and I send you by PM the error message, coming from HaD.io
Mystery solved: My script blocker blocked s3.amazonaws.com which seemed to provide some of the features.
Meanwhile, I made a C version....
I keep getting the "needs your permission to enable desktop notifications" message.
Any chance you can put my preference (ie - "no") in a cookie or something so that it only asks once?
(Note: I dismiss it using the X checkbox in the UR corner.)
Thanks for the feedback! I don't get that message on Mac, (I clicked no for most chatrooms), but I get it always on PC. I'm using Chrome on both. Will look at settings.
I should have mentioned: I'm using Chrome as well, it's set to accept cookies.
Peter - I disabled my adblocker (Win10/ Chrome) and the gold band "needs to enable ..." went away
adblockers and scriptblockers are causing some issues, it seems, the webdevs should take them into account, or we get misleading error messages :-/
I'm guessing that your devs are using a 3rd party library for the desktop notifications feature, and the library is known to be from a spammy company or of bad provenance by the ad blockers.
I won't disable ad blockers, because I trust their judgement in this.
It looks like I'm stuck with the behavior. Thanks for looking into it :-)
Is there a crack in the spam shield ? A race condition to exploit ?
The quarantine idea works only if the projects are public.
I just spotted spam from 1 week ago, which doesn't seem to be reported.
Did the projects start as private, until the embargo period was over ?
I was just dabbling around in the jobs board, and was struck with the geographic constraints. There's are interesting jobs in Mauritius, Pasadena, NYC, and Boston.
How about a "projects" board, where people or companies can post project requirements and let other hackers respond?
For example, I'm currently laser cutting some parts for another hacker, and on previous months I've 3d-printed parts and made other pieces for other people.
I'm pretty comfortable with laser cutting & have access to one, but I find making circuits very difficult. I could easily pay someone to make a schematic and board layout for a prototype I'm working on.
I don't do mechanical layout very easily either, and I know a lot of people here find that sort of thing easy.
OTOH, I did microcontrollers for 30 years and can very easily make software for people: modifying and adding-on to a design is then much easier.
How about a channel devoted to people who need a basic framework for something, using skills they don't have? Something that is a prototype, that they can then extend and modify for their project?
Hey Peter, I love this idea. Lately, people have been using the Stack to ask for what they need. What do you think of the #Collaborator Matchup project?
it's under-used and barely known... it should be promoted prominently :-)
"Usernames must contain only alphanumeric characters. You can use a dot as a separator."
It is offending to have to transliterate names. Please allow unicode everywhere, it has been around since tens of years now and doesn't cause any problems anymore.
Why am I following over 50 random People and Projects after signup? Is this just an evil way to ensure that the authors stay on top of the list forever?
Error of error: while posting a reply to a comment on https://hackaday.io/project/14628-ambap-a-modest-bitslice-architecture-proposal/log/48656-relay-endurance-speed-and-reliability
The message was published anyway...
It might explain why some logs or comments were duplicated lately ?
The system objects to your abuse of relays :-)
Then it would complain "relay error" "bad proxy" "wrong port" :-P
Thanks for the feedback!
Thank us by telling us the story of how you spotted the problem and what the blunder was ;-) you know we love stories !
Oh, you could start a "coding horror" project on here ;-)
I have been seeing these more and more, too. Just got this one. (Redaction box drawn by me.)
Feature request for the next contest. Some way for others to (secretly) comment on projects with things the judges might need to know, for EG links to prior art that is being claimed as novel, relevant research on the feasibility of projects etc - basically like the thing they do at weddings asking for any last objections to the union. I haven't had issues with the current winners, but I can forsee someone doing well with a stolen idea.
Although, looking at the current judge lineup I suspect they know more than enough to spot any funny business :p
Hi John! Thanks for the feedback! Comments on any project are always welcome. Comments directly to the Prize can go to email@example.com. And yes, we're pretty lucky with this group of judges.
As a followup, something very useful to contest entrants would be feedback, especially negative feedback.
It would help a lot if there were some way to anonymously show the scores the judges gave to the projects, and maybe make their internal discussions available to the project lead.
For example, judges might say things like "the documentation was hard to understand", or "this doesn't look like it has a lot of hacker potential", or even "this isn't a hack".
This would let the project leads know where they should focus for improvement next year.
Failing that, perhaps a way that other members could anonymously comment on each others' projects.
I used to run an event-driven business; we required member feedback after each event, and let people say whatever they wanted about anything.
What we found was that if we paid attention to the feedback and made changes, we held better events and eventually became the most popular system of its type in the area. Frequently the changes were minor and easily made.
If you want better projects on the site, consider allowing feedback so that people have a method for learning and improving.
I agree with your point.We would really appreciate if we can get feedback on our project especially from judges.
Ever since the recent spam was dealt with, my two new projects don't show up in the projects lists anymore. If you sort projects by newest, they should show up on page-2(as of this post) The projects were created on 10-29-2016, but they don't show up in the lists at all. Not even in the completed project lists(TheBlackBoxSequencer) or the ongoing projects lists (MimsMirror)
They are public, and are still in my projects, and can be found if searched for by name.
Project 1 - MimsMirror - Created 10/29/2016 - https://hackaday.io/project/16788-mimsmirror
Project 2 - TheBlackBoxSequencer- Created 10/29/2016 - https://hackaday.io/project/16789-theblackboxsequencer
Is this a bug from the few new policies /improvements in the queue that were changed due to the spam?
I guess someone fixed the problem, my projects are now back in the lists, currently on page 3 of the new projects. Thanks.
