You asked and we listened. Here are the latest changes to the hackaday.io user interface.


1. We've added Likes to Member Pages, and the number of page likes will also be displayed in the feed. At the top of the Pages, we've added the number of likes and the reading length. e.g. https://hackaday.io/page/1480-youtube-stuff

2. For easier navigation, the Project Menu has been added to all section pages of a project. eg. https://hackaday.io/project/963/components
3. Get more info about a Member by hovering over their screen name. It's not implemented across the entire site yet, but you can try it out on Projects now. e.g. https://hackaday.io/projects
4. The Contest Followers are now grouped into one update in the feed. If you follow a Contest, your feed will no longer be filled with multiple updates about other people following it too.
As usual, we welcome all comments, bug reports, and ideas over on #Feedback - Hackaday.io's make hackaday.io a great place to collaborate and share!

We need opt-in email digests for project updates... I have project followers who don't visit the site often, but while like to get emails of project updates. By opt-in by project or entire feed it would help people keep track of projects. (Already submitted to feedback, but figure I'd post here too, basically trying to garner more support for this :) )
