OK, dear HaD web designers, you win the Internet forever for the most cluttered feed ever:https://hackaday.io/myFeed
Are you sure? yes | no
could you share some screenshots? I have no Idea what you're talking about, but want to :) looks like nothing has changed for the last year or so.
Indeed, nothing has changed, except I was always on the old format of the feed until 3 days ago. The old format where all notifications were just a simple list, sorted descending by time.
Three days ago I saw a notification to try the new feed. My bad, I clicked on it.
Now the feed is opening way, _way_ more slower, with a "Fifty Shades of Gray" scrolling sideways back and forth for a few seconds (on a I7 desktop with 1Gbps fiber net), the filtering criteria for new messages are not working any more (e.g. messages from stack, which I was unsubscribed from, are now present again), and the new messages are embedded inside snapshots of the pages where they came from, mixed with old messages, mixed with all kind buttons and links, and multiple reply boxes, and grouped by some obscure criteria, interrupted here and there by recommendations of what and whom to follow, and so on.
Yes, it's the same feed that most of the people was punished with in the last year or so.
On the first page, not one message is displayed. Even on a 4K monitor with scaling 1.5, I need to scroll down one page in the feed to see some messages.
These are not all the things I don't like about the current myFeed page in comparison the old one, but just the ones that really bothers me.
I don't ask to change the current format that everybody used to use in the last year, I would just like to opt out for myself, and see the feed like a simple list of messages sorted by time, like it was possible for me to see it until 3 days ago.
I pressed the "new feed" by curiosity. I preferred the old feed, ordered by time and not grouped.
How can I go back to the old feed format, please?
that's how they get us! Lemme know if you get an answer :)
Not exactly an answer from HaD, but looking at the myFeed page code, here are 2 workarounds:
I'm sorry, to be blunt, but I've asked before. This needs to change:
This screen is 1280x800, surely it can handle 80 characters without wrapping, nor scrolling sideways.
This site promotes the sharing of code. Would think this to be a priority.
Hello HaD website developers team :-)
I'm adding a new feature to #HackaDump : saving the projects that are contributed to.
So I'm looking for test cases. It's easy to find hackers with no contribution, but harder for high numbers (to check if I have to loop somehow over several pages).
@Sophi Kravitz matches that criterion but I find a BUG in the pages :
https://hackaday.io/sophikravitz says "9 projects" on the button below the 6 first projects
https://hackaday.io/projects/hacker/542#projectsIContributeTo shows 39 projects !
Why is there such a difference ? How can I trust & use numbers that are displayed ?...
Same with https://hackaday.io/projects/hacker/40107#projectsIContributeTo : 10 vs 14
There is a bug !
Somehow I became logged here from my phone as another person! I had ability to change background, edit profile etc. Something is going on here..
How do we know it's really you reporting the issue?
(sorry. it's Friday night)
I don't know - may be it's not me anymore :-o
Anyways - I think it's serious when somebody may accidentally get logged as different user (do you use like CRC16 or something for authentication?) - to whom may I provide details about the incident? Like date and time of the incident, name of the other user etc...
Please ping me on PM with the details. We have identified the time window and made sure to verify data integrity & reset all the sessions right away, but any additional info might help stay on the safe side. Thanks!
Hey Shaos, thanks for reporting! We have rolled out a new caching layer last night that triggered this. We have immediately detected & patched everything up, but a few sessions got impacted in the time window before the rollback. The issue only got triggered under a specific session/browser combo, which is why it got missed in QA and was invisible for other users. Really sorry about this.
ok, good - but I changed my password just in case ;)
Seems like posts in the "Feed" for page 1 after "lukasz.iwaszkiewicz updated the project details to the project Micro robot wars." all have bold fonts on. Page 2 are not affected.
Chrome on win7 x64.
HI @K.C. Lee! Thanks for alerting us, we are working to resolve the issue.
Enter+Shift doesn't work in the chat for me.
OS X 10.11.6Chrome Version 55.0.2883.95 (64-bit)
The menu doesn't get a background color when I'm on the message page, but on other pages it works. (talking mobile and tablet sized here) - I tend to split the screen from time to time, that's when I notice the behaviour.
Hey @davedarko! Bug is confirmed. Thanks for the issue report.
still up for debugging? thought it was fixed, but I can see it again. Just making sure.
Unfortunately bug still exists.
thanks for the update :)
Love what you did with the place! I mean the range stuff. Awesome :)
and the range is gone again? weird.
It's coming back soon
I liked the range thing, too, but the behavior was a little counter-intuitive. I created a project last week, and it got a handful of likes in the first day or two. One of my old projects got a single like after that. One morning, the old project showed up first in the list, as the burst of likes on the new project crossed the week threshold. It seemed like an inversion to me.
I wonder if some kind of "decaying average" of likes would be a useful sorting - maybe weight the influence of each like with a decaying exponential function, so that a burst of likes doesn't fall off the radar as it crosses a week (or month) boundary.
My feed is broken. The global feed shows up fine, but my feed spins with the "shades of black" animation for a few seconds, then says "click here to load the feed." Clicking it does not load the feed :-(
Your message didn't show up on my feed, because it's down too......
crossing fingers !
Same here on:OS X 10.11.6Chrome Version 55.0.2883.95 (64-bit)
Could be related to the html inject hack by some joker that I have posted below which cause an empty feed page on chrome.
Take out your pitch forks!
yay it's back :)
Hey All, we remedied a bug affecting feed items. It should be back to normal as of yesterday. Please reply to this comment if you're still experiencing issues. Thanks!
FYI one of the recent feed page is blank. It could be this joker that injected RAW html code into the feed.
I recommend looking at the time stamp and see for yourself. Lesson: Trust no one. Sanitize your inputs.
I am getting the "Details can't be blank" red bar *while* I am entering project log. May be the checking should be done *only* when I am saving the log?
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)
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. :)
