@Hawkee How can i add a New Line exactly under the previous, and not with one empty line space? I mean i never liked this markdown thing, but at least it supposed to have some basic features...

I've been playing with the colors a doing some fine tuning. I realize some have said they prefer the dark header, but I feel like the lighter scheme is somewhat growing on me. I may experiment with the existing colors, the new logo and the new font to see how it looks.

Maintaining DRY HTML

Question to web developers out there. How do you maintain DRY HTML? DRY, as in, "Don't Repeat Yourself".

For example, if you have a navigation bar to be shared across every page, what do you do to avoid having to copy-paste this code 10-20 times?

Among the solutions, I found JQuery/JS, PHP, Server-sided includes, iframes, object element, and Python.


Is client-sided, so it relies on the client having JS enabled.


PHP has a handy include function which lets us compartmentalize web components.

Server-sided Includes

This is apparently the HTML equivalent to PHP's include. It requires setting certain flags in Apache, and marking HTML files for parsing in HTML. I think this might be slower than PHP, because I read somewhere that it involves the server re-parsing and updating HTML files every single time they're being delivered.


This is useful for sandboxing HTML, but not so useful when you want JS and CSS to work cleanly across the entire page.


I couldn't find as much information about using object to embed HTML. This might have the same issue as iframe?


Really one could use any scripting language. Basically place special tags in your HTML file, like $$$header$$$, and then perform a find-replace in Python with the appropriate HTML whenever you wish to deploy or run the HTML file.

I had a dream about HTML last night, so this is really bothering me. What do you all think?

Can you add a dialog to "confirm navigation away from page" on the Create Page page? I just spent half an hour writing a page and accidentally backspaced out of the page when the text box wasn't in focus. Now all of the content is lost!

Points, how do they work? It used to be likes, and I had less than 100... Now its points, and im so confused.

I'm experimenting with a lighter color scheme and a new logo. This is in no way a final product, but I thought I'd share a couple WIP screenshots. Any thoughts?

I've just deployed the new Developers page. This works as somewhat of a leaderboard showing users who have the most points over the past 6 months. There are also options to see the all time top developers and the top developers over the past month. This also includes updated follower pages and an updated People you Know page. Have a look and let me know if you've got any feedback.

I'm considering dropping the dark colors and going with a white/light gray color scheme here. What are your thoughts?

Hawkee   -  9 days ago

Working on a new developers section. The default sort will focus on the top ranking developers over the past 6 months.

Seeking advise on embeddable web chat clients that connect to irc networks.

Currently I am using a lightirc embedded chat box on my webpage.
When I do speed tests upon my page using gtmetrix, I often get warnings about using FLASH. or advise to delay the loading of flash or java scripts. I've looked into other embeddable webpage chats ( to irc), like kiwiirc but always, these embeddable chat boxes cause slow speeds on my page. of course java scripts and flash applications will slow down a page.

Does anyone here know how to code in html5; a embeddable webpage portal chat client to irc without using flash?

I know that the Firefox new updated browser does not support flash. This means that every person who updates to the new firefox browser cannot open the chat box on my webpage. I also suspect that over time, flash will be phased out. Google is already down-ranking sites with flash.

Any advise would be helpful.

I updated the homepage to include a live demo of the page editor. I'm hoping this will better represent the capabilities of the site and invite people to join.

Just about to upgrade to Yosemite. Anybody upgraded yet?

@sean I like the new avatar. I think it was about time for a change.

Hawkee   -  16 days ago

As you may have noticed I've just pushed out some design changes. The activity streams now have a more updated look, and I've streamlined many of the animations. There are no longer separate options to post images and start threads. I've consolidated the two into this single "Start Thread" area. As always, let me know if you find any problems!

The next phase of my gamification project will be to add a "Developers" page. The primary purpose will be to help companies find developers based on their achievements. The sort order will primarily be based on points, but users with fresher points will be given precedence.

@Hawkee Looks some of the bbcode isn't being translated into markdown. I noticed Color and Url.

Hawkee   -  18 days ago

I've just implemented the first part to our new gamification system. You earn points by getting likes. A "like" to a page earns you 20 points, 5 points for new threads and 2 points for comments. You can see your new point tally reflected on your profile page and site header.

Anyone made a script that read the text/line) from a file and display on a channel with time interval ? or maybe an idea

example: i have ips.txt file and i want to read each ip from the file to check the location of each ip every 20 seconds ( i have an ip checker bot on the channel)

/msg # !ip readIP(every 20 seconds) and after reading it the ip will be removed from the list

Thank you

I have a !addcom command and things, But some bots have like a -ul=mod type of thing, So they can do like !addcom -ul=mod This is a mod only command, And only mods could use that, Then there would also be -ul=user which can be used by users. How would i do that?

You probabbly know that i created my messenge app in VB .NET, called VibeIM using MySQL. Today i want to show you v2. It is just for preview only :)

@Hawkee I'm not sure what your views are on this, but do you think Hawkee.com could display full names rather than aliases (perhaps, as an option)? I can see Hawkee.com becoming another website people refer to on their resumes, portfolios, etc.

It's always a little awkward explaining to people (esp. potential employers) that BlueThen was an alias I chose during my gamer days when I was 9 or 10.

Another thought along this line is unique URLs for users. For example, Hawkee.com/JohnCarmack vs Hawkee.com/profile/941249

I'm experimenting with circular avatars. I think it looks a tad more modern, so I might keep it.
