      • Hectic Review Process

        Hi!

        I'd like to suggest a better review process.

        1- It seems that multiple reviewers are coming and asking each time for new things, without coordination.

        2- The article provides installation instructions duly commented. Bur last comment I received was about providing some instructions as a separate code! Sorry, but I don't understand. Providing those installations commands without the related comment is absurd.

        Thank you and best regards,

                • I could find other hackers in my local area.

                  For those that are interested in meeting others, they could post a local meeting place and then if someone responds with an interest in meeting, then a time is posted and others can join it as well.

                            • I could control the cropping of my image for the project.

                              The project "hero" image - shown in search results, home page, top of project detail page, etc - that I upload gets automatically cropped by Hackster. However, I would like to be able to control where it gets cropped. Currently, it's a trial and error process to get just the right part of the image to show up.

                                • Copying clipboard images into the project editor window

                                  Would love to see the ability to directly copy images into the Project editor window from the clipboard (Ctrl+C --> Ctrl +V). I document most of my projects in MS One Note and have to save each of those images individually into files to be able to upload in the editor. Having this feature would also allow images from the web and other applications directly pasted into the editor and eliminate the intermediate step of first saving into a file and then uploading it.

                                        Hi!

                                        Editing an article is really slow and painful. The website doesn't work well on Safari, only on Chrome. Even worse, I have to turn Java on and switch protection off.

                                        Please offer a lighter website!

                                        Kind regards,
