Uploaded photos do not have their EXIF data or any other metadata stripped. I've picked some random projects which has photos and I can see the camera EXIF data and sometimes even GPS information. Is this intended behavior? If yes, maybe not that on the image upload so users are aware of this.
Are you sure? yes | no
This has been a growing issue with Vidme, YouTube, Twitter, etc of banners dominating the screen when they serve so little function especially giving false impressions to those who do not do graphic design better than another. For HaD.io as example, some one comes to a creator's page, they come for the projects. When a page is loaded on a screen, You can not even see a single project image in full. Not one. What you are given is 80% banner and 15% why you visited and why this site exists. I am asking that you make a bold move to not follow the current dumb gimmick and instead FOCUS on why we are on HaD.io. ...or if you must have both, integrate better. I posted a log on https://hackaday.io/project/19049-hackadayio-remodel-pitches to demonstrate what we see and there are alt images to show what IMO we shd see.
So... It would be nice if "projects" had a very explicit "Licensing" tab, with choices ranging from "public domain" to "teaser for a proprietary commercial product"
Even better would be some sort of App that lets contributors choose attributes for sharing, and narrows down "typical" licenses to reflect those choices. Sort of like https://choosealicense.com/ but including OSHW-appropriate choices.
The tab might have to include license info for both the HW design and any SW/firmware components.
That can be mentioned in the project details or in a linked repository (e.g. github).
This "white on black" hackaday.io website is unreadable during (bright) daylight. I have searched quite a while to find a "black on white" hack, though only could disable custom colours for each and every website in Firefox, and that disables showing the images too. Wish a high contrast "reader" layout (or no color styling at all).
Surely you could write custom CSS for Stylish to change the text and background colors on this site.
Counter of views out of service?
Can you elaborate?
Elaborate? Simple the views counter seems no to be refreshed. 100 to 400 views per day but this week nothing? To strange to be normal.Just a remark, not essential.https://hackaday.io/projects?sort=views&page=3 No counters on this for example changed in a week.
Is it a big problem?
How can I get list of projects that I liked ?
From your profile page, there is a section labeled "Projects I like and follow": https://hackaday.io/projects/hacker/237825/likesandfollows
Found that, Thanks a lot :).
Major lawyer spam.

also should complain to the bar assoication.
Or maybe SupplyFrame writes them an invoice for the advertising.
For testing purposes (no self-likes, I swear!) I've added an account with my work mail a while ago, then deleted my account. But I've still received the newsletter and had to unsubscribe it. That's probably something someone would whine about :D
Thanks Dave we'll check that out.
Is it possible to move the "Delete project' button somewhere else, please. Talking here about the 'Delete project' button, which is actually more a delete project Bar than a Button, and it is placed just above the 'Save' button which one will normally want to click.
The 'Delete project' it's bigger than the Save button, and I almost click it a few times by mistake. It almost gave me a heart attack each time I wanted to click 'Save'.:o)
There's still a modal that opens after clicking 'Delete project' to confirm deletion, but you're right. We'll try our best to prevent unwanted heart attacks ;)
Hear hear :-)
I don't seem to get email notifications for comments on ZeroPhone project or its worklogs, even though I'm the creator and the one that posts all the worklogs. For example, https://hackaday.io/project/19035/log/63250 - I only got the notification for comments by Radomir and Morning.Star, Tor's comments have all went without notifications. This is bad, because if I don't notice a comment, I can't reply to it and questions or potential collaboration opportunities can easily be left unanswered. I don't want Hackaday.io to look like yet another site where you can post your questions and never get an answer (or never know that you got an answer), so I do my part on answering the questions I get, but this issue is getting in the way, TBH.
There's a 1 hour minimum for emails, could that be the issue for you?
Yep, that's probably the issue. It's sad there's no way to opt-in to decrease this minimum - if you ever implement a way to do this, please, do notify me =)
I cant seem to edit the instructions on https://hackaday.io/project/26057-ernie when I make any changes and hit save, nothing happens and the instructions remain as before
Hi! So, the editor appears to have changed. It's all fine by me, but the code blocks are now fucked up - adding a Python code block, then going to HTML view and back fucks the code block up with lots of garbage HTML stuff. I wish I weren't as disappointed about this as I am right now - especially knowing I have at least two long days of waiting to post my worklog =( =(
"No highlighting" code blocks aren't affected, so it's got something to do with highlighting - as viewing HTML suggests. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with HTML =(
Also, when it will get fixed, I have a worklog with code snippets without highlighting - https://hackaday.io/project/19035/log/63675. Could you please either enable Python highlighting for all the code blocks, or notify me via PM so that I can convert them when I have the time? The worklog is, unfortunately, not so readable without highlighting =(
Ouch, we'll check this one out. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Thank you very much!
Should be fixed now @Arsenijs, let me know if it's fine for you.
Thanks to whoever it was changed the buttons on the edit project page for no reason. I used them to line up the right hand edge of the picture when scaling to give my pages a distinct feel, among other little tricks.
It might not seem important to an interface designer, but designer and artist interfaces are relied upon for continuity in ways the designer never intended. It's getting like my mobile phone, which I now hate because they change my desktop monthly without my permission.
Seeing some linked picture in my instruction that wasn't supposed to be there. Left side is what's in the editor. Red boxed picture is from someone else's project.
Affected Page: https://hackaday.io/project/20326/instructions Between instruction 3 & 4

Hey KC, I'll PM you.
Looks like on the hackaday.com blog I can't post comments with Facebook anymore. I can login with my facebook account, but when I try to post something, it says it needs eMail and name fields. When I logout from facebook and use eMail and names field, the posting doesn't appear. Login with twitter works (didn't check login with wordpress account).
I'll ask around about this.
A recent "feature" has appeared on the pages dedicated to the project description : the bottom of the page shows a "Add a project log" button, yay ! (This shows on the projects I own.)
However the link https://hackaday.io/project/undefined-promer/log/add goes to our beloved flying Bender. Who allowed this bug to go to prod ?...
So, you just want to know who, nothing more.:o)
Yes, I'm a modest guy, I'm even modester than you :-P
Youre right its a mistake and is going to be removed.
It's working for the log pages but not the main "project detail" page
I still wonder why these buttons had to be added at all.
The "Add a project log" is actaully a great button! I have clicked on it already - otherwise, you needed to go to the main project page and then find the "Add a project log" button down below.
I clicked once :-)
Today I see that the button is removed from the project details page. I can still add logs from other pages though and it's fine :-)
Well, I think that the "details" page is not supposed to have this button anyway, am I right?
"supposed", I don't know.It didn't have one.then it had, and didn't work.and now it's gone."At least they tried" :-)
Feature request: Ignore list for a specified Hack Chat user.
Is there any way to make invisible all messages from a certain user, please?If not, this is a MUST have feature, please consider adding this feature.
Hm, that can get confusing with responses coming out of nowhere :D I think for personal messages that makes sense and is needed, but in group chats there can only be exclusion.
There is no absolute right or wrong. Also, judging in the name of everybody else and start banning/excluding people is not what I am looking for.
Confusing or not, the "ignore user" feature is still needed. Please consider it.
Hey Dave, we're working on a feature to mute unwanted PMs. Stay tuned
I don't want to be responsible that this comment won't be replied to, because I did - so I'm linking @Richard Hogben and @Van Nguyen and @Van Nguyen
Unfortunately, there is no way to hide messages from a user in a conversation at the moment. Foremost, messaging was created for collaboration on projects, and so muting other contributors is not what we're trying to support (however that doesn't apply to more niche scenarios like Hack Chat, as you've evidently noticed).
It's definitely a feature we'll consider for the future. As far as alternative choices go, it is possible to block user messages using a Chrome extension (see this one for Slack: https://github.com/ketanbhatt/block-slack-users). Could be a Hackaday project ;)
Thanks for the honest answer.
I just liked a project, and then saw it over on the blog's sidebar as "Christopher Bero likes blah".... Can't this just be my username please? I provided my real name so emails from this site can address me, not really for my actions to be broadcast like this.
Thanks, looking into this.
I shouldn't have just voiced frustration on a feedback channel, sorry.Actual feedback would be that I don't understand the difference between the username and a profile's full name on this site, and it doesn't seem to match any other forum I've used. That's not immediately bad, just unfamiliar and maybe a bit jarring.
Understandable, and that's what we are discussing. We'll try to clear it up. In the short term, there are currently no private fields on the profile page. Username is referenced in the URL, and 'your name' is referenced elsewhere.
I've got a question, I new to the community, I've created a public project to show it to the world but it is not listed on the Projects section. Why is that? Thanks!
The same thing happens to me. I set it as "public" and it can be found through the search panel but it is not present in the general list.
Hey guys, I'll PM you about this.
This same thing seems to be happening to me. I 'm guessing there is a minimum post count that stops spammers putting stuff up to the main pages. No biggie but just wanted to share my project with everyone.
I'm not a member of the #Hackaday API (yet?) project, but I can still see the "join team chat button" at the top of the page.
hey Dave, I'll PM you about this.
