I'm trying to save DaniWeb. :) What are the biggest pain points you have with DaniWeb? If you don't visit DaniWeb as much as you used to, what changed? Where do you go now instead of DaniWeb? What makes other resources better?

Hello all, I am a new to this world of IT and working on my BA in Computer Science (six classes to go); this is a second career for me (I am now 48 and a disabled Veteran of the USMC) so I am seeking out every tool that I can find to improve my knowledge.

As I understand it, there were problems on Sunday (Feb 24) which caused problems logging in. Daniweb would not accept my password (or so it said). Normally when I go to login I get presented with the login page with my userID (reverend Jim) and password already filled in. Now I was getting the login page with my email address instead of my userID. Manually entering my userID and password resulted in an indication that my password was incorrect. I clicked on the "Reset Password" which is supposed to send a reset email to a given address (which I entered). …

This coming Sunday marks the one year anniversary of the Cambridge Analytica scandal story breaking and engulfing Facebook. Does *anyone* think Facebook, and in particular Zuckerberg himself, have learned *anything* other than they are both apparently immune from whatever smelly stuff hits the fan?

It is with deep regret that I inform everyone that it just very recently came to my attention that the DaniWeb database was breached in December 2015. Over a million user profiles, including email addresses and IP addresses, were stolen. Logins and passwords were protected through an additional security layer and were **NOT** able to be stolen. While encrypted versions of passwords were stolen, without access to the old version of DaniWeb's code base, there is no way for a hacker to figure out the very unique encryption method, which included multiple unique salts, which we used. Please note this …

Why is it that C# disappeared from the Programming menu? Something to do with upcoming changes?

I know a lot of the regulars and moderators are unhappy with the content currently on the homepage. In actuality, the homepage is designed to be an overview of what DaniWeb has to offer for newbies, while catering to more active DaniWeb members by only showing articles that are in the user's areas of interest, and have new content since they've been last viewed. The reason that regulars tend to be unhappy is because they visit DaniWeb so often, there isn't enough fresh content for the homepage to show. The Latest Posts button offers a stream of all the latest …

First how this happened. The Nissan Leaf from about 2011 to mid 2015 on the SV and SL models included Telematics. Telematics in thse models let the owner use a web site or smart phone app to query battery status, start or stop charging and turn on/off the climate control as well as get performance statistics. After years of warnings from AT&T that the 2G cellular network was going to shut down, AT&T did the shutdown in January 2017. This caused a lot of troubles in the M2M and Telematics space or business. Nissan responded by offering a (discounted?) upgrade …

OK, so we are thinking about bringing back the 'Member of the Month' feature in the monthly newsletter that goes out to all DaniWeb members. This was a staple in the DaniWeb Digest for many years, coming to an end at the start of 2016. The hall of fame was, aptly, entirely virtual but the kudos of being included as real as it gets. Three questions then: 1. Would you read the Member of the Month interview if it was brought back? 2. Would you be interested in being interviewed, or want to nominate another member for the interview? 3. …

As you noticed by the title I didn't used the term “know” since I find it more ambiguous then “you can code in”. To keep answers short lets limit ourselves to five languages at most , have the same list for strongest and weakest points and mention those point in brief (one or two sentences). Who will go first ?

On my android device I get no dropdown menu at all from the hamburger. Chat and profile image on the titlebar work fine as does the main dw logo. Also while creating this post. The continue button on the first screen (deciding forum and thread type) was unresponsive. As does Continue to last step button. I have to click on the progress titles at the top to go on

To all in the last week or so who received a private message from me consisting only of the phrase, `Noli Mentula`, I sincerely apologize. In the previous incarnation of Daniweb, sending a private message was considerably different than in the new version. I had assumed that a message would not be sent unless/until I composed it, then clicked some equivalent of `Send`. You know. Like practically every other text messaging system ever invented. While trying to work through the new system with Dani I inadvertantly started conversations with several users. To further explain `noli mentula`... It fall into the …

Comparing a discussion with the home page. When I see the Home Page, top and center of each card is the member who did something such as Viewed, Gave Reputation, Endorsed and so on. Now you head to a discussion and who wrote this? Example at https://www.daniweb.com/programming/software-development/code/385622/google-map-control-vb-net The author is nowhere in sight. I could be wrong but I could not find the post's author. Replies are formatted well so you know who replied and when, but something is truly strange with the original post there. Reviews are slightly better like https://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/hardware/mobile-and-wearables/reviews/518478/i-bought-a-galaxy-watch-on-black-friday-here-s-what-i-got-for-my-money but if a post's author is going to …

I've noted how the home page seems sparse but why is that lone upvote there at all? It's not that interesting and there's no way to dismiss it or fill the page with what I choose. See attached screen. NOPE. The image upload looks broken. I'll try Imgur and it's markdown. No other forum leaves this so barren. I was hoping to see it flourish over time. Or see controls, options to have it be a place to go often. And when there are items besides this, they seem to be random in size and match as to my interests. …

I see a +0 next to post comments. Thought this was supposed to be votable. Nothing happens on tapping. BTW on Android. Also when I entered a comment and then decided to edit it, the original text did not show up in the edit box. So made me think I wS posting a new additional comment. Meaning I lost it and had to enter a comment for the third time! Also why does edit post appear as an option when I clearly don't have the right to alter somebody else's post?

Hey guys I decided a while back that I wanted to get into coding. I started a few days ago with sever tutorials ranginf from how the internet works to codeacademy which starts me straight off coding simple Python. This seems all well and good but the problem I have is that there is just so much free content knocking about I dont actually know what would be the best logical place to start. I think the general consensus from what I can work out is to start with javascript but im open to listen to any advice people have. …

My geo-location was being displayed as Cambridge (I returned from there on Monday) so I told daniweb to update, which it did, except it now reported me as `Winnipeg, Manitoba - 3,897 miles away`. What am I 3,897 miles away from? Then, when I click on `Member Connect` it says (for example) that I am 46 miles away from aravindc (London, England) so I'm assuming that even though I did the update, part of daniweb still thinks I am in jolly old.

I'm at https://www.daniweb.com/articles/latest/unanswered and when I mouse over the poster's gravatar or icon, all pop up with "First Post by" and the menber name. OK, that's all well and good but then I was curious to see all the posts were "First Post by". Even one by me! This is a truly minor bug but may as well log it.

Just for all those wondering what's going on, I don't know but I did jump on another PC to check and it was logged in. So I logged out and could not log back in. The first hint there was a problem was when I went to login on my Android phone. At first I thought it was just the phone but nope. For now, if you are logged it, you can post and more. But **DON'T LOG OUT.**
