Here comes!Make sure you give me feedback.
Yep, not bad at all. If designed for the computer-illiterate, I'd put a simple bit of instructions at the whitespace below the app. I found it slightly confusing when I first got in, seeing the "Create directory" box, and the image upload boxes, but nothing else. However, I quickly got the hang of it! .Chris wrote:Hi Adam,
What do you think of my interface? Is it easy to use and self explanatory?
Hmmm... neither can I now. I tried it 4 or 5 times last night, and it would never work (although I notice that now, I can see my locatation in the right-hand frame, whereas when I was trying the tests originally, nothing displayed there after clicking on the directory)Thank you for the great testing. I can NOT however, reproduce the space bug.
Last night, as I say, there was no Loc: details in the right hand pane (the right hand pane was completely gray, like the Loc: part is now, but was empty). This morning, the loc: details are there. Perhaps some odd Firefox behavior?Also please be sure that your Loc: states you are actually INSIDE of the directory that you think you're in. Make a dir with spaces, then make sure you change into it and the Loc: reports the proper location.
Strange. I definitely experienced it, and even tried 4 or 5 different varieties with 1 space, 2 spaces, etc... I'll try again tonight to reproduce it in any way I can think of.I did not change the code at all since last night other then to make the Loc: in the right pane show up. But that would not have changed the directory upload & delete issues you said you experienced.
Agreed completely. It's a really nicely designed piece of software. For a site like this, where a picture is definitely worth a thousand words, the ability to add and modify descriptions to these pictures would be great.I have found a few more items that I'm going to work on adding before I release the software to the public but I think it's definitely worth activating on OUPower. I believe it will add a LOT of value to the site.
I think this would be the best way -- it cuts down on spammers, and people abusing the system (porn, etc...). This way, you could look through the posts made by people and decide whether it would be worthwhile. Heck, you could appoint someone as an admin and give them the ability to give this permission and the criteria under which you would like it granted, and then you don't have to worry about it at all.So what do you think I should do with regard to letting people make projects here? Keeping it the way I have it, one has to manually request permission and I would grant them permission to create a project directory.
Yes. I think you'd definitely be asking for trouble, and this would end up being more of an administrative nightmare than having to grant users permission. Worst case scenario, as I see it, is someone logging in at midnight, and uploading enough pictures to fill your hard drive (unless there are precautions in the code?)Do you think I'd be asking for trouble to allow people to post automatically after a certain number of message posts here on the forum?
Then I'd be revoking privileges when people abuse the system. hmmm
