#6437 The Handmade.Network Feedback Megathread!

Here's something that I've found somewhat annoying: User names are case-sensitive. For example, I cannot log in by typing "zedzull" (all lowercase), I have to type "ZedZull".

Profile page links are like this as well. https://dev.handmadedev.org/m/ZedZull and https://dev.handmadedev.org/m/ChronalDragon take me where I expect them to, but https://dev.handmadedev.org/m/zedzull and https://dev.handmadedev.org/m/chronaldragon redirect to the 404 page.

Indeed. That's considered a feature until I fix it, which ought to be before launch tomorrow.

On the homepage with the activity feed, there is a sort of visual break or off-alignment with the project cards on the side. This may appear to the users as if the project cards are placed incorrectly. so I would say do either of the 2 suggestions in the picture. or come up with a third :P


Give a man a beer, and he is happy... End of story.

I agree, and would prefer suggestion #2.

Firstly, good job on the website. Fast load times, great design (dat "HANDMADE" header! *drools*), and no-hassle input textboxes.
2. Enable markdown. I absolutely love markdown, and I think a lot of other devs will also be more used to it rather than the current [] notation for text input.


+1 on the markdown. Also, the editor is very laggy; it cannot keep up with my typing speed.

Also, I can see the "new blog post" button. I can even write one... but no idea what happened to it.

Browser: Safari, Version 9.1 (11601.5.17.1)

It's slightly better in Chrome: Version 50.0.2661.86 (64-bit).

Huh, I haven't experience speed issues in any of my test browsers -- text appears as quickly as I can type it (even mashing keys). Let me see if I can get my hands on Safarai to try and repro, or failing that, a slower computer.

In the meantime, you should be able to disable Javascript on that page and the box will be equivalent to a native textbox.

Okay, I've acquired a slightly older version of Safari (5.1.7) and am running it on Wine in a linux VM. I think I see what you mean about the speed issues. Trying to see what I can do about that now.

owensd: According to Safari's own profiler, I'm spending only microseconds in my key event handlers. If there are stalls, it must be on safari's side, and there's very little I can do about that.

Looks like the scroll bar isn't position correctly on the homepage now.

Was true on Chrome and Firefox

Hey, awesome site :)
This looks far cooler than I expected!
Sorry that I'm testing it just now.

Here are a few things I've noticed:
- I can't upload new project logos for any theme.
- For some reason I can't upload a particular 1.08MB image. The server gives me the following error message: "413 Request Entity Too Large"
- Animated GIFs are usually larger than 2.5MB.
- When I remove my optional real name, the project page doesn't list me as a developer.
- For some reason the colors of uploaded images change (slightly, but very noticeable in our case) if displayed in the browser (chrome). Any idea why this happens? Is it scaling them poorly?
- Some images on https://dev.handmadedev.org/p/hero/f/game-discussion/t/706 seem to be way to big for the new theme.

Don't be sorry, we need the testing :)

- I can't upload new project logos for any theme.

Try refreshing the page after doing the upload. We still need to do the caching pass, so it might be serving up the old version of the settings page / project page.

- For some reason I can't upload a particular 1.08MB image. The server gives me the following error message: "413 Request Entity Too Large"
- Animated GIFs are usually larger than 2.5MB.

The former may be due to server configuration settings, I'll ask Jeroen to take a look at it. As for the latter -- we're a bit pressed for space right now (not to the point where it's worrying, but limited nonetheless) so we're setting the limits fairly low to start with. We may be able to add support for screenshots hosted on external sites in the short term to allow that kind of content.

- When I remove my optional real name, the project page doesn't list me as a developer.

I've just pushed an update which should hopefully fix this. Let me know if it's still broken (and send a screenshot).

Browsers are notoriously bad at handling sRGB. It may be double-applying gamma transformations or applying them where other software doesn't, or using a different curve. I've noticed this in a lot of different places. Unfortunately there's not much I can do about it, especially considering different browsers handle it differently.

ands

- Some images on https://dev.handmadedev.org/p/hero/f/game-discussion/t/706 seem to be way to big for the new theme.

Fixed by limiting image width to 100%. I think we might want to consider automatically giving large images links so that you can click to see the full thing, or wrapping them in a div so that a scrollbar can be added.

Thanks for the feedback!

Hey Handmade Dev team,

Gushing over the website design so far. Love the style! Very encouraging for my own project ideas. ;)

Just found a minor issue: when I'm page 3 of this thread, when I try to go to page 2 via the link, I get this error:



Doesn't occur when I go to page 1 and can go to page 2 on page 1 without issues.

First off - Let me say like everyone else that the site looks absolutely gorgeous. Kudos!

Now for the bug report - Is anyone else having problems uploading? I'm trying to upload my installer. I am getting the error: 413 Request Entity Too Large. It's a 1.2MB EXE
