In order to follow projects & hackers or give likes
you need to create an account.
Recent projects are busted - All the old old old projects have a last updated time of two hours
Steps to reproduce:
- Go to "Projects" at top
- Sort by last updated
- Try to convince me that those HaD Prize entries from 2014 are still active :)
Are you sure? yes | no
Seems like generally the project list is right now pretty broken, displaying random projects.
Since the blog side links to the [dot]IO side, it would be cool to have a link at the top of the [dot]IO side that did the reverse -- linking this side of things back to the blog...
"Ah'm jest a-sayin'..."
Hi @Starhawk - Actually we have in "More" dropdown menu as "Blog". Thanks!
Could stand to be a little more prominent, then, maybe... again, just sayin'...
what is the value of strain gauge you are using
ha, I was about to write 7 the other day.
The instructions section is causing me real headaches, when editing and adding steps then old steps get mixed up, then after moving steps back to the right order and save, it looks fine but then gets jumbled up again on the project page. There also needs to be a note that you are only allowed one image per step entry.
Hey David are you working on 6-axis micro manipulator? There shouldn't be a limit on photos per step, at what point does adding the second image fail?
The images can be added but they are removed after saving and only the first one remains
Ok, will do some trouble shooting on this side to try and reproduce the behavior.
I have seen SPAM that is 12 hours old that I have reported and yet not removed.
Developers please prioritize SPAM removal and filtering instead of more incompatible tweaks to needless updates. SPAM is a major problem here.
50% or more of the updates are SPAM. Until you have proper URL filtering in place, PLEASE remove the ability of adding URL, phone numbers in user profile pages.
We unpaid users are not responsible of cleaning up your mess.
It's pretty hard to maintain the styling with this list https://hackaday.io/project/25481/details/ - I try to get an empty line before the new point comes. When I hit enter in editing, everything is fine. But after saving / update the whole thing is mashed up again :(
Why does (did - I undid it) my profile show me following 9 hackers and 5 projects when I have *never* requested to follow them???
That's part of the boarding process when starting a profile here and it's all automatic - IIRC.
comes from clicking what you like etc.
The editor sure makes it difficult to maintain any formatting (underlining disappearing, extra spacing between paragraphs disappears, etc). I even see that white background pictures would need to be reworked because the site grays out the white background. This is not going well. Sorry to say, it's starting to not look worthwhile for me to post my project here if the site is going to turn it into "hamburger".
For the "gray" background issue, is it because your PNG files have a transparent "white" background?
thanks, that took care of it! Hadn't expected transparent pictures were being created by the editor application.
Hi! I have problems with mobile interface for editing messages and other materials to publish on the site. The edit menu obscures the text which I try to input. How one can minimize this menu so as to see what is being written?
Hi Pavel, thanks for your feedback. The sticky toolbar is definitely a bother in mobile views, we'll fix this shortly.
When I am looking at a project for the first time, one of the things I immediately want to know is whether the project is still active. It'd be nice to see some basic pieces of info right at the top, near the name and description. For example, if the project is tagged "obsolete" or "shelved project", it'd be great to put them right at the top in addition to listing them down below in the tag list. Also, some indication of the date of the last project update (new logs, build instructions, details edit, etc but not comments) would help readers figure out how active the project is.
That's a good point, we'll note this for the future.
FYI: Please look into why reporting this user gives error: https://hackaday.io/Spikese5l
It is a viagra spam and is still on the system.
I know this is a huge amount of work and possibly also a can of worms, but it would be nice if there was a way to merge two projects into one, so that the people who followed any of them would still follow the merged project, and both URLs would redirect to the new project. Also all the logs and comments could me merged, still displayed chronologically.
The reason I'm mentioning this here is that because I had to "fork" some of my projects at some points in time for a variety of reasons (a highly experimental version, special version for a workshop, a requirement for the hackaday prize submission, completely independent projects that at some point converged, etc.) — and I would like to be able to merge them back together now, since it no longer makes sense to keep them separate.
As I understand it, this would be an operation that is impossible to reverse, perhaps even it would need to be performed by an admin on request, and possibly it would still require some manual corrections afterwards.
Massive spam incoming. Seeing some of them have the dreaded "You have reported this already" and some with error message.
May be it can be a project for the HaD prize for someone or a future contest? 'cause HaD isn't going to be solving this any time soon. My suggestion is filter all URL, do blacklist on keywords phone numbers, QQ, addresses, previously spam user id, filter based likeness on previous spam pictures. I and possibly others will upvote anyone with such a project.
Heh, just had one spammer start following me… and terrible at doing market research: I have no houses to buy, not even in the tiny border town of Texas. :-)
I think this tactic of theirs will backfire.
These are spam from some SEO spam bot for google ranks - more links from popular sites given them higher scores. Every time I see a surge, there is exactly one SEO a few days later (except for the Chinese/Indian ones) They are not even targeted towards the readers here as whoever that provide their service goes by number not by referrals. The following is probably just to disguise their activity here.
HaD could have reduced these by using robot.txt to tell google not to include profile pages, removing those pesky url links. I have made those suggestion at least a year ago. Too many things they could have done better, but they are wasting their time doing other things and breaking more things.
Heh too, I wondered why a property development agency started following me rather than a project.I've had a few notifications in my mailbox that read 'Webmaster has started following you' but the link breaks too, usually with a 404. Looking at the list of followers it appears they join and then rename themselves a couple times because there's only one new entry.Rather odd behaviour for a noob, who usually dont have a developed profile on joining. Thats a bit of a giveaway in itself I suppose.
@Morning.Star Possibly 404 links because they get blatted by the moderators here.
I don't know about following. The spammer definitely changed a few small things a few times after I posted.
for some reason I can't access the chat on my notebook, OSX 10.11.6 and Chrome Version 60.0.3112.113 - cell phone works though.
Is there an error or any response, I have it pulled up here with those versions.
It's just stuck showing a yellow "connecting"
was able to get in again
I have perceived that the visiting counter of my project got stuck in 660 views a long ago, maybe two months ago or more.

Thanks for help and keep the excelent job!
Looks like it's solved. Thanks!
FYI: Spambot user ID format: 1 alpha followed by 1 digit and 3 alphas
Usually have no country listed. Either no user picture or the same cartoonish pictures or the two gay guys (cropped or uncropped).
The escort one is similar format, but variable number of characters. Still how hard will it be to use a regular expression to black those type of user ID?
Hi… I've been noticing a lot of spambots appearing of late… they'd create a profile and then shortly after, post a nice long page as to why you should be taking up their services.
With *very* few exceptions, these are generally completely unrelated to the community here. I think the one exception was a PCB manufacturer based in China: of whom I cut some slack as we have a few like @oshpark on here already (who do actually contribute to the community here and are "on topic").
When I've seen one, I generally hit the report link, and give the explanation "This user is here to spruik their business and not contribute to the community."
One such user, I got this message:
Did I break something?
Seeing same error about 1 in 10 reports.
Lots of viagra, lawyer spam, escort, gambling every time I try to read the feed. Just report them as much as I can bother. Almost no point of keeping URL in profile when only spambot uses them for search engine rank.
What's up with empty github for some users?
I've been reporting the Github users too… as it's a violation of Github's terms of service.
May be the feed should tag reported SPAM for reported ones. Save a bit of time for everyone.
The project View count in all project pages is not updated for a while now.Is it a feature?
