Activity Stream

Hawkee   -  Feb 15, 2020

I'm trying to figure out what to do with this site. The spam is really a huge problem. I'd love to change things around, but I don't know what I could do to make it successful. I don't think just another code snippet sharing platform has much of a place online, so I need to completely reimagine this site. Any thoughts, ideas or suggestions?

I made some adjustments to how comments and snippets are posted. The goal is to eliminate spam. It seems a number of spambots are programmed to post here and it's become quite a task to keep up with it. Hopefully these changes can drastically reduce, and hopefully eliminate, the amount of spam being posted to the site.

You should put your code in a code box to give it some formatting.

Hey hey raccoon, good to see a new post!

Hawkee   -  Aug 10, 2016

I just upgraded the server, so it should be a bit faster. Let me know if you encounter any problems. Thank you!

Keeping mIRC alive! Did you build this recently?

Hawkee   -  Aug 04, 2016

I've gone ahead and switched everything back to the "Snippet" terminology. My goal with the "Page" concept was that people could write articles, but since that never caught on I think "Snippet" is more appropriate. I've also gone ahead and removed the "Projects" section from the main menu as well. This was the old Scripts section which is now deprecated. The scripts are still there, but since the layout is broken it needs to be hidden.

I've also reworked the menu system and simplified the site dramatically. Clicking home when you're logged in now goes to the latest snippets. The activity stream has been delegated to the "Following" menu item under your avatar. There are now only 3 primary sections to the site: Popular Snippets, Threads and Latest Snippets.

Nice, so is Spigot the new Bukkit? It seems to be the emerging winner.

Sure thing! Glad to see it's being used!

I know this has been a long time coming, but I finally finished implementing the new statistics system. You can now see the pageviews from both the page listing and the pages themselves. When you click the icon you'll get a dialog bar chart outlining the pageviews for the past two months.

Hey gooshie! Welcome back!

We support CodePen embeds if you want to include it in your article.

Howdy folks! I know it's been a little while since I've updated here, but I feel I need to let this layout settle for a while before making any radical changes again. I have been working on the core engine and have some nice features to bring over to Hawkee in the near future. I started a new site using the Hawkee engine called RotorBuilds which has had me fine tuning some core functions of the software. It still looks a great deal like Hawkee, but I'm not focusing on design so much as functionality. Have a look and let me know what you think!

It's always good to indicate what this is for in the title, for example "$formatdate alias for mIRC" otherwise nobody will find it on Google.

We use Markdown to create posts. Check here for how to add code and formatting: http://hawkee.com/snippet/16065/ Images need to be hosted off-site, but you can still use Markdown to add them.

You could use this or you can just search Twitter for "mojang down" =D

I made a slight tweak to the Noteworthy tab. I changed the criteria to look at the user's points. So if you've earned enough points your pages will show up there. New users who do not have any points will not show up there.

Has anybody started using Google Inbox yet? I really like the design and UX. I haven't opened Gmail for a couple days and I don't miss it yet.

I'm experimenting with TinkerCad and it seems to be quite powerful. Our local library has a 3D printer that's available to the public, so I've started to get into printing basic things. Anybody else have access to a 3D printer?

I decided to get into a new hobby and picked up a Cheerson CX-20. It's a neat quadcopter and allows for programmable waypoint missions and an abundance of tweaks. Anybody own a quadcopter?

Hawkee commented on a Page, Check Internet Connection  -  Feb 05, 2015

Might be a good idea to start your page with the description. Your profile will only list the first paragraph of each page, so you're ending up with a lot of "Requested by" lines rather than descriptive text.

Looks like you've got a misspelled word in your title.

Hawkee commented on a Page, Need help with MC mod  -  Jan 26, 2015

I'm not sure everybody know what you're talking about here. Maybe you should say "Minecraft" instead of MC. This site isn't necessarily intended for questions, so this is probably better posted as a Thread.

Always better to use an API rather than scraping.

Hawkee commented on a Page, Page Title  -  Dec 24, 2014

Might want to fix your title.

Hawkee   -  Dec 15, 2014

I just made a minor change to the site. Now when threads are too tall they will be collapsed and include a "More" button to expand them. I think this will help make the activity stream easier to view at a glance.

Hawkee   -  Dec 13, 2014

I've been considering what to do about the Projects/Scripts section and I believe the best course of action is to convert them to the new page format. Files currently hosted on Hawkee will be grandfathered in with no future support for file storage. Sites like GitHub are better suited for hosting. This will allow me to permanently shut that section down and reduce the need to keep those themes and styles up to date. Let me know if you have any thoughts of concerns on this matter.

Evil Icons - While I'm not a fan of the name, I like the thin style of these icons. This is definitely becoming a trend lately.

I saw WOW.js on Product Hunt today and thought, "neat, that looks like fun." I'd also had the thought to play around with the Hacker News FireBase API so why not merge the two?
