The current system of say Facebook, Google (YouTube, Search Engine Optimization) and just about no one else has lead to what I see as a possilbe break from these masters or owners. It will take time and effort by all and so far, just peeps (noise) from governments. I'm hoping Dani Horiwitz will weigh in here since this is not my field. My thoughts on this go back years as privacy was something we all had a lot more of a few decades ago. But here we are and it's a new world but one controlled by the few as …

Is it allowed to put a lable on my own topics, so that I can find them easier? An example would be this very topic.

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.**

This actually started (in a convo with Dani) as a simple idea of just upvoting comments made to posts, buuut I quickly got ideas for turning comments into a sort-of Reddit-style thread system, where comments could be collapsed so the original general idea of the forum thread could be viewed. I'd also suggested a user display setting to collapse comment threads by default, but Dani brought up a conflicting idea that if someone made a comment saying some post was wrong or something, users who collapse comments by default wouldn't see it. personally, while this is valid, the responsibility is …

1. No more robocalls. 2. A CyberTrk. May have to wait. 3. A good shawarma for lunch. 4. A new Daniweb home/top page.

I went to Disney World for Thanksgiving break, and all those germs got to me, and I now have bronchitis. On top of it, my laptop (the only computer I have here in California) suffered from battery swell, and needs to have its battery replaced, which means that the Apple store is holding onto it for 5 days. I’m now sick and without a computer for the upcoming week.

Before anyone files a bug report, we are no longer pretty printing (using javascript to add line numbers & color coding) code snippets when on mobile browsers for performance reasons. It's not that it was particularly non-performant on mobile. It's rather just that I'm working hard to improve performance across a variety of devices, and I felt like it wasn't worth the trade-off, given it's an extra second or so of javascript parsing in exchange for making code not all that much more readable when on a mobile device.

Long Title: "Here are some top topics recommended just for you" email recommends a thread deleted two months ago. "what are the feature of window 10" was in my email and that looks to have been removed two months ago. As a moderator I can get to it but is the code behind this in need of a little update to not recommend content that was removed? What about folk that don't have this superpower? I'll forward this email back to you via email with comment. In short: 1. Received email from DW on 11/20/2019. 2. Thought I'd read an …

I sent a donation a week or two ago but never received an acknowledgement. Years ago I made one as well and received notice the $ was received. Is there someone that can check and see if you received my donation? Thanks. :-) (P.S. I hope I posted this in the right place!)

As of today, DaniWeb offers a completely ad-free experience to sponsors!! What do you think? Is it enough to sway you to donate $5/mo for all the benefits you get?

once you start new topic/reply (in general:: open editor pane) and hit ESC, you will be switched from windowed to full screen and vice-versa. I am on macOS. I have no ability to check it on other platforms.

The Forgot Password process sends an email with a link to click. The email purports that the link resets the password to one specified in the email. The link logs me in, and takes me to the User Settings page. I can enter a new password no problem. I put the password from the email in the current password box. Something appears to be broken here. -Mike

Sorry for the intermittent downtime over the past few days. We think we were being DDOS'ed, perhaps unclear. However, we've upgraded to new web servers tonight, to bring HTTP/2 support and *finally* move from PHP 5.x to PHP 7. A few years late, I know. Let me know if anything isn't working as it should!

Hi all, I haven't used the forum for a while so lot of the functionalities are new to me and I have to admit I found some of them really counter intuitive/annoying. For a start, the way to reply to threads, that "Reply to this topic" button at the bottom that then turns into a small window which is incredibly annoying. Yes you can press esc and that turns into a full window but there you lose all the formatting options (code, quote etc): why can't we hav a normal full size window with all the options to reply to …

I don't think people should be lumping web design with HTML and CSS anymore. Design should be separate from coding. Design is typography, layout, color theory, illustration, digital manipulation, etc. It should really be it's own section and not grouped under web development. Anyway, just saying. =)

How do I change my account picture?

Have been trying to change my profile pic via the community profile update avatar option. I keep getting told that 'The image you are attempting to upload doesn't fit into the allowed dimensions.' However, there is no clue as to what the allowed dimesions might be. The one I'm trying to upload has been sized down to 490x653 (171kb) and I can't recall what the limits previously were, will keep trying smaller and smaller - but thought it might be an idea to flag the max size in the error message that is thrown up.

When I leave a comment (vote with comment ) under someone post , it will increase 2 points for vote up and 0 point for vote down. After I leave the comment and click the vote up button, the user earn 2 points. But after I vote down again, the comment get removed but the user still earning 2 points. The two points should be deducted too, no ? Thanks.

Member profiles now have a new statistic that measures impact. It counts how many people the user has reached. It should be noted that we just started calculating this number earlier this year, so at this time, the highest number is roughly one million.

Recently I realized that I not receive any email notification from DaniWeb. When I check on the User Settings, I saw this alert message > We have been having problems emailing you. Has your email address changed? Please update your email address to begin receiving email from us again. After I re-write my email, this message changed to > An email to verify your account has been sent to xxx@hotmail.com. Please click the link in the email to confirm your email address. But when I check my mail, I don't receive any email from DaniWeb.

I just got a PM from a user who said "Hello! I'm <username>. Nice to meet you! Let's connect." What I know about this user is precisely zero. Before I respond to a "let's connect" request I'd like to know a little bit about this user. In the old Daniweb I would just go o that user's profile page and read whatever he/she had decided to share. How do I do that now? And if I can't do that, what incentive do I have to respond?

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?
